True the Constitution guarantees our right to bear arms, but things were different when it was written. People couldn’t just pick up the phone and dial 911, as in this report from Detroit:
FOX 2′s Charlie LeDuff says a woman who feared for her safety called 911 six times, but the dispatcher waited more than an hour to send officers to the dispute. LeDuff says by the time officers arrived the woman was shot by a man armed with an AK-47. She is now listed in critical condition. …
LeDuff says back in May a woman was fatally stabbed after a call was made to 911 and cruiser didn’t arrive on scene for 90 minutes.
Police almost always arrive on the scene before rigor mortis sets in, so clearly citizens have no need to defend themselves.
On a tip from Lyle.
