Would like to pose some questions to you, if I may;
Are you concerned for the welfare of a criminal, more than the Rights of a law-abiding citizen?
Have you ever been the victim of violent crime?
Have you ever been confronted by a criminal, obviously intent upon causing you or loved ones, harm?
Have you ever seen the victim or a rape? A murder? A beating? A maiming? And taken part in the sufferings of a victim of crime?
Are you aware that Law Enforcement has no duty, whatsoever, to 'protect' us? That the position of the court(s) is, that government is only required to provide for the 'common defense' - not for the defense of the individual? And that their hands are tied, unless they actually witness a crime being committed?
Do you honestly think that there are enough Law Enforcement officers, (or military for that matter), to protect every man, woman and child in our nation?
How many people do you suppose have died while waiting for the police to respond to their call(s) for help?
Can you point out to me, just where our Founders specified that a lawful citizen should scurry away from a real or perceived threat?
Do you possess full knowledge of the intentions of the Founders, in their reasoning for enumerating the Second Amendment in our Bill of Rights?
That the intentions of the Founders were for the citizens to be prepared to confront ANY threat that posed a danger to their Freedom or Liberty?
If a citizen makes the choice NOT to be a victim. That citizen has the CONSTITUTIONALLY ENUMERATED RIGHT to do so.
It is my contention that your logic and reasoning are in need of serious revision. For it is evident that you place the welfare or 'right', of a real or perceived criminal, over the welfare and Rights of a law-abiding citizen. Crime has been rampant for years now. And has only grown more brutal and heinous in nature. Think about it.
