It's in our culture that we don't trust our government. Hence we don't trust the police to get there in time. No matter how good the police are their response time is always measured in minutes. Sadly that's just not good enough if you're about to be a victim, in which the amount of time you have to react is measured in seconds. Simply put, the police cannot be there in time to protect you. Now a shotgun on the other hand is virtually guaranteed to solve a problem so long as the user use's the tool properly.


Sadly this is true. Police are good for one thing: keeping criminals from running rampant in the streets. Other than patroling around and scaring off potential criminals, or making reports for insurance claims, they are near useless.

Thoes who disagree have obviously not been in enough situations that they've needed to call the police. Mainly those those live in forunate neighborhoods with low crime rates.

If you're happy with that, then cool. I wouldn't be.

That chart shows that Switzerland has a higher rate of firearms ownership, but a vastly lower rate of firearms deaths than us.

That proves that preventing gun crime is a matter of criminal control, not gun control.
