Our Second Amendment Right to keep and ‘bear’ arms, goes directly to a person’s ‘Right’ to self defense. The statement, ” When seconds count, the police are just minutes away”, says it all. Freedom to do as one believes is fine, BUT, I would rather have a gun (carrying it), than need a gun and not have one. I still find no whisper of taking guns away from crooks, or any reference to automatic gun charges. WHY? Not a part of making the population of America helpless? Or what?
