You know the one #gunsense statement that annoys me the most? “At what point does my right to live, trumps your gun obsession?” My reply “My guns and protection are far more important than your life.” My response may be a little harsh, but it’s the truth.
Laws do not protect, they punish law breakers. A gun does a better job of protecting me than a book of laws that criminals ignore.

You chosen the path of out sourcing your protection and the protection of your love ones to the government.
But what happens when the government you choose to entrust claims no duty to protect you or your love ones?

Take the #pulse night club shooting for example. At one point in the chaos the Orlando Police Department were unable to enter the building for 3 hours.
