It takes 7-10 minutes on average for law enforcement to respond to an active crime scene. Sometimes it’s faster, as with the Dayton shooting in which law enforcement was already at the scene. Sometimes it takes longer; anyone living in a rural community is aware there are times when law enforcement can’t respond quickly at all. These aren’t “right-wing conspiracy” talking points. These are facts backed up by multiple studies.
Then, when we apply the common sense notion that law enforcement isn’t capable of being everywhere at once, the argument that we need to give up our firearms and call police when we’re attacked becomes ludicrous.
One America News host Liz Wheeler made another extremely powerful point while discussing the self-defense component of gun ownership. The government does not have the right to determine how we are to protect ourselves. The 2nd Amendment’s description of “well regulated” was never intended to hamper the people by keeping them from owning “scary” guns like the AR-15, as most on the left desire. It’s our right as humans and American citizens to determine how we choose to protect ourselves.
As usual, the left is quick to denounce 2nd Amendment defenders as vigilantes but they’re not so quick to propose solutions for people being attacked after their means of self-defense has been stripped away. The leftist’s response was found wanting.
