People don’t want a standing “Army” yet they want instantaneous response and results. – Whirl

It is entirely possible for public servants to do their jobs without all the trappings and mentality of a standing army. It was done before for generations, and the gangsters of the 30’s made today’s version look like a Daycare group.

Let me ask you a question.

We’ve been told for years that guns, and the ability to use them responsibly, are the sole provenance of Law Enforcement (even though the only real meaningful difference between “LEO’s” and citizens is that a “LEO” can effect an arrest for a felony and a misdemeanor and a citizen can only effect an arrest for a felony), to “not take the law into your own hands” (even though we got along just fine for about a hundred years without “LEO’s” altogether), encouraged to “dial 911!” when we need help, that citizens are bumbling idiots who cannot be trusted to defend themselves or take care of themselves, taught to think of police as Holy Avengers sent from On High to protect us, and then when society has grows to rely on the police (even though you and I both know that SCOTUS ruled the police have no duty whatsoever to protect you personally – only society at large), then according to you it’s OUR fault?

How does that work?

The wicked flee when none pursueth..." - Proverbs 28:1
