Default Civilians are Safer than Police

Civilians deserve the same range of options, particularly since they encounter criminals twenty to thirty times more often than the police. Fortunately for the armed citizen, criminals are consistent in one regard. Few criminals press their attack when they face an armed victim just as most criminals stop when faced by an armed police officer. For the civilian, presenting a weapon in the face of an immediate violent threat is enough to stop most crimes. Gun control politicians ignore that fact and tell us we would be safer if we were helpless victims. Fortunately, most Americans are not helpless.

Great article Jeff, shows the facts... I have had to explain gun laws to more than one Leo, I am extremely educated on gun laws in florida. Not tooting my own horn but I study them so I do not get into any trouble while ccing........
