Why are we relying on failed systems to protect us?
We are here to be responsible adults. We must not rely on any state or institution. We must care enough about life and justice to enforce justice. Yes, we pay tons of tax money to hire a professional force whose job it is to enforce justice as a police officer. This institution of police has been largely corrupted and perverted away from “serving and protecting” we the people, and whittled down into a focus on “enforce compliance”, which is NOT what we hired them to be, and empowered them with OUR right to arrest.
We must care about life enough to take action to protect it at the ground level Armed police cannot be everywhere, all the time. FBI statistics show that police are POORLY TRAINED, and that 60% of the time when a policeman fires his gun at a perpetrator, they MISS the first shot. That means when a policeman shows up (usually far too late to do any good), and they fire at a perpetrator, SOMETHING OTHER than their target gets hit. That means that something BAD, dangerous and unintended happens. A person, place or thing get’s SHOT that had nothing to do with stopping the threat.
So, EVEN IF, we (magically) had an armed policeman standing every few feet in America from coast to coast, the fact is that 60% of the time THAT DOES NOT REALLY WORK to stop threats to lives, to protect rights, and to protect freedoms.
Americans have to CARE enough to be armed and TRAIN with that protection tool. Police get minimal firearms training. We have the FREEDOM today to train better than they do because, they are just HIRED to do a job, whereas we are filled with LOVE AND CARE for the lives God created.
As is, armed citizens stop 10x more crime every day, in America, than all the police. If you want less crime, if you TRULY want that, then you also have to want more armed and trained citizens.
So we must live life prudently, from this reality, and not in wishful thinking such that we rely on “someone else” to protect us in their own way, their own politics, and their own timing. To do otherwise is to be a fool and set yourself up for failure, bitter regret, and needless death.
