If guns are so dangerous, why do the politicians have armed security details? Armed security with radios to call for more. They are all armed with full sized magazines for their handguns and rifles. They are in teams. Some of them actually have fully automatic weapons.
Every time one of them opens their mouth and tells me what I do or don’t “need”, they show off what giant hypocrites they are. If they disarmed their security and all the police in the country, at least I’d consider the possibility they believed what they were saying.
Because I’m a citizen without an armed security detail and I am left to be responsible for my own security until the police arrive. Even if that’s just a few minutes, everyone has a fresh lesson of how horrible those minutes can be.
