Sorry man, that is a realistic fact. It's been tried and found true. Ask any police officer. For the time it takes that officer to unholster his weapon, point and pull, that person with the knife is already on top of you. Consider that the officer already has that gun at his side and expects such possibilities. You or I as a civilian with a holster does not maintain that mentality and I believe it would take even longer to draw down.
...unless you're John Wayne, of course
OH nice an American production????
Not a great way to back up your point.......it is like saying lets police the world... AND all the US police killing civilians.

I am a police officer and I DON'T even depend on my own cities police force to protect me during such dynamic incidents.
I advise you to rethink your plan.
Freedom though, including freedom to own guns comes with a price and it always will. Freedom is a messy affair and there is built in risk involved.

Most mothers think about such scenarios and cringe that their child could be snatched right out from under them. It has happened many many times.
You sound very naive, but tenacious! I like your attitude. Someday you will have a cc permit. I will almost bet on it! Maybe when you have a 10-year old daughter or granddaughter to protect.
So what are you doing now?
I don't see keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill, criminals or violent people as tyranny.

So what are you doing now? you bleat how your freedoms are being taken away all the time but you have done nothing.
The USA has an illusion of freedom which was destroyed with the patriot act and you have done nothing.
your guns have not made you more free at all and all your bluster about fighting TPTB is just that bluster.
You ahve shouted loud and clear but done nothing what you preach.
At what point will you do something other then typing?.
