Why I carry a handgun for protection, Vol. 15

Because law-enforcement resources across the country are being significantly reduced due to unprecedented budget-cutting measures, according to USA Today:

"'For the first time, because of the economy, police departments ... may have to change how they do business,' says Chuck Wexler, executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, a law enforcement think tank. 'People will see a change in the basic delivery of services,' from longer police response times to a dramatically reduced police presence in some communities." (Emphasis mine)

Put more directly, this translates as: The chances are greater than ever if you call 911 for help that no one will be available to respond, or that response will be a long time in coming.

You would be well served to be prepared to defend you and your loved ones from society's underbelly yourself.
