"...A government, and its agents, are under no general duty to provide public services, such as Police Protection, to any particular individual citizen" Supreme Court Decision, Warren v. District of Columbia, 444 A. 2d (D.C. App. 181)"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither" Benjamin Franklin.
If the reader reads nothing else, I refer the reader to an excellent series of essays and facts written and gathered by the organization Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. I had never read such eloquent, logical, fact-based, and dispassionate arguments supporting the case for the ownership of firearms by the individual; dispelling myths the anti-gun crowd circulates; and going even so far as compiling a very recent list (2011) of gun facts disproving what the media and anti-gun groups circulate as facts. Do yourself a favor and read them. You'll want to at least bookmark them, or download them, as I have done for future reference.

Anti-gun people like to point to other countries and tell us they have made gun ownership justabout impossible. Well, yeah. And what's happened? Crime rates in those countries has surpassed those of the United States! Oh, yeah. Look at Mexico. You have to be at least 25 years of age to own a firearm. However, take it out of your home for any reason and the law will come down on you very severely. Does that stop the Drug Cartels and their gangs? Hell no. Tens of thousands of people have been killed in Mexico in the past few years. But they blame the United States for the guns, even the automatic ones that could not have come from the USA (too controlled). The same way that calumnists (not columnists, but calumnists) blame the National Rifle Association for psychopaths with blood-lust. It was the National Rifle Association that championed laws preventing FELONS and INSANE people from legally owning firearms back early in the 20th century. The NRA also instructs Police instructors so they in turn can teach rookie cops how to shoot. I wasn't a member until December 24, 2012. The hysteria has convinced me I better join.
Thank You to not only the US (EEUU) readers/visitors of this blog but to the readers/visitors from Canada, Germany, England, Australia, South Korea, Japan, Philippines, Guam, South Africa, Ireland, Malaysia and Norway! Your interest in this subject is highly appreciated! Do not let the news media and anti-2nd Amendment special interest groups in the USA make you believe violence is on the rise. These are isolated acts of domestic terrorism by violently-mentally-ill persons influenced by the very violent video games available and the very violent "action films" Hollywood constantly markets.http://fauxassaultweapons.blogspot.com
