Well then walk the walk. Don’t ever call police for anything you need…. accidents, break ins, medical, assaults. Put your big boy pants on and handle it yourself.

People cannot “walk the walk” when machine-gunned in their sleep by officials.

Jacob, don’t denigrate the police. The majority of them put in more work than thou to protect America.

Moreover, there is not a single policeman idiotic enough to try to take your guns away. They understand it to be a suicide mission, and moreover, are part of the gun-toting republicans that would be arrested anyway.

The Democrats are relying on the republicans to disarm themselves. They won’t last long.

@GUNFUN – You overstate considerably. Most officers are good people and would attempt to distance themselves from confiscation efforts. However there are officers who have publicly stated that they look forward to door-to-door collections. Some are adrenaline junkies and others are stone cold killers who only get joy from killing.

Once you get “officer down” calls, even the honorable officers will jump to defense of their “brothers” without checking circumstance – so will be… Read more »

Gun, you seem to have forgotten the two killed in Maryland due to police actions where they arrived on the scene to confiscate firearms and killed the owners instead, one in his bed while asleep. How alert will you be when asleep and the police come and shoot through your window and the walls?

Police of all types are enforcers do as directed and allowed by officials that hire them. Enforcers serve and protect themselves and those hiring them and not private citizens—too many enforcers considering private citizens as lessor civilians. Enforcers willing to defend the rights of individuals are not their majority. Drug and arms laws are amble pretext to violate the rights of any person at any time. People now do not need to be personally advised by attorneys to be apprehensive when dealing with arrest authorities. Too many law officers desire respect out of fear. Fearing powers is counter the purpose… Read more »
