There is a big difference between the two situations. And actually the second is more realistic of whats going to happen and what needs to be done to help out. We will never have enough police officers on the ground to protect you or your family. NEVER. Take not that when we have any type of gun attack today every type of law enforcement around shows up at that site thus leaving vast areas unprotected and open to robberies, which is happening. During the Katrina hurricane several years ago, the law enforcement on duty went home to protect their families and we ended up with Mexican military there. How did you like to know that. What we are talking about here is the normal day to day we all live in now. And what encouraging all types of individuals to bring loaded weapons to the party is a potential powder keg. Give you example from a class I was exposed to. You are sitting in McDonalds and you look and some guy is beating on your car with a ball bat. What are you going to do? Basically, you are going to do nothing. You can call the police and watch. Because if you go out there and upgrade the situation to a life threatening conflict then you are the problem. That vehicle is just a piece of metal and can be fixed. And I hope they covered situations like that in the class. Just remember that we do not have the authority and freedoms of a police officer. I worked in the District Court of Black Hawk county for several years and got to read the evidence transcripts and see the awful evidence photos. I also carried a weapon for lots of years in Waterloo and DM because of all the physical threats. I worked with the police in the city I now live and have actually be in lineups. I have breakfast some days right next to a Sheriff and we discuss all this stuff. My military was an assignment to the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe(SHAPE) in Paris, which is NATO, and had a Cosmic Top Secret Clearance. Some people might want to be careful in make a judgement.
