Contrary to popular believe, the police are not here to protect you. It’s hard to believe but true (Supreme Court ruling covering this). You are your own first responder. You need to defend yourself when bad guys show up at your door and decide to hurt you and your family. You need to be the one that shields your children from their violence.
You don’t think this is not possible? Check out this recent video showing three armed men breaking into a Milwaukee Southside home while the mother and her son were inside. The police did not show up in time to protect them. They arrived after the event. After the violence.
You and only you are a first responder. Buy a firearm. Get training. Practice in your home. Teach your family. Protect you and your loved ones. The price is too high if you don’t.
