    want more nanny state protection and don't understand that the nanny state will agree...but then claim they have no responsibility to do so when it counts.
    You and I both but conceal carry is also a commentary on the practical application of law enforcement.

    Truth is Police around my parts will tell you out right to not depend on them for your personal safety and it makes complete sense.

    Same here. They can't get their in time to save you. Their primary job is to catch criminals...and that means someone already did something.

    Awfully convenient in case a normal person stumbles upon a back-alley deal between a cop and a gangster. If the gangster wins the cop can just walk away and pretend to see nothing. If the normal person wins he can claim. "Uhh, I was scared."

    Tough situation because you WANT the cop to help. They sought out a job that involves resolving conflict so you think/hope they would have the guts. Unfortunately you cant force everyone to be brave.

    You gotta have some balls to claim police don't have a special duty to protect or at the very least ASSIST a law abiding citizen trying to stop a serial killer.
    They ain't required. That's why you should just have a gun. When you need them the most, the police won't be there
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
