What are you going to do when you have seconds to react when someone is entering your house to do you harm? Call the police? Not me, I'm reaching for my Glock 30.

I believe he means to say in the cae of outlawed guns where only the criminals have them by virtue of you acquiring one for protection from these criminals you yourself become one in that having one would be against the law regardless of your intent.
There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. ~Ayn Rand
You are now six times more likely to be mugged in London than New York.
A study found American burglars fear armed home-owners more than the police. As a result burglaries are much rarer and only 13% occur when people are at home, in contrast to 53% in England.
