Problem is: no American is ever going to win a fire fight with the police.
There was a story here about 50 miles from me 2 or 3 years ago, where the police went to arrest a man for domestic abuse, and they decided the gun
range was a good place to pick him up. The waited for him to walk out to his car, they tazed him, he dropped to one knee, drew his gun, and fired
killing both officers that already had weapons drawn, and already had tazed him. He then proceeded into his truck, ended up in a high speed chase,
where he rolled the truck, kicked out the back window, and had a firefight with the police injuring several before they finally killed him.
He didn't "win," because he was dead in the end, but he was one man versus an entire force, and he held his own.
He was a bad guy, not a good one, and I'm not trying to make him out as a hero, but if the US population ever decided to actually stand up for
itself, it would be an effortless victory.
