You need to hope HRoi or GF does not notice this post.

Where is it morally/ethical right for government or a group of people to decide your rights? These two are always changing, so they can not be legitimate in these matters. Being dependant upon law enforcement is not dependable. When law enforcement shows up two to three hours later that is not true law enforcement. And if you call 911 and they tell you, "We don't care if they beat you up. We don't care if they kill you. Hang up. We're not going to help you.", (That's what I got one time when I called police). Government is not a magic bullet. Personal responsibility really never goes away. And the gun really is the ever'ner. Government never has the legitimate right to take away your access to safety.

Look, cops are scumbags but no responder ever said that to you. You are lying. I am calling you a liar.

I've called 911 after seeing people die in construction sites. Never got a rude response. Under heavy stress your voice can change, and become very high pitched. The operator must of thought you were a child that was fucking with them. Still, any first responder should know the effect stress can have on motor skills.

Even if it's a kid, no responder is going to say "we don't care." That's just not going to happen.

EDIT - I've never called 911, and I don't think I ever would, but I've listened to hundreds of calls. Maybe a thousand by this point. If something like "we don't care" happened it would be all over the youtube like that time the family complained about not getting their orange juice at McDonalds.

It happened over thirty years.

In the sixties the neighbors had the two three hour waits before the cops showed up. Twice people broke into the house while they waited for law enforcement to show up.

Interesting... it was a crazy time 30 years ago with the whole Vietnam thing going on, and JFK being assassinated. 20 years ago wasn't so bad when Jimmy Carter was the president. I know he gets a bad rap, but 10 years ago was a nightmare during the Reagan administration.

Don't think 20 qualities for an old fart. Was your high school text book written by a ten year old?

Yeah, 1985 was a tough year. I can see why you'd reference the 60s (prior to the creation of 911 service no doubt).

If someone came at me with a knife and I had an Asp that person would end up with 2 broken arms and I'd be fine. 

Asps are illegal in my state.

Yeah, but you can shoot anyone walking in your neighborhood without recourse in your state.

I finally got around to Googling "asp weapon." It's a fucking telescoping baton? I've had one in my vehicle for the last 15 years or so.
