Snarky has a post up that IS the argument as to why some of us take our personal safety as our very own responsibility. Go ahead and read it, I'll wait.
I wish to take nothing away from Snarky or Redhead as I fully understand why they can't carry at this time. Those of you that have the means and ability* but choose not to because you think you won't need it, every time you leave your home I want you to look in the mirror and say "BAAAAA". Now, for those of you that argue that we do not need to carry the proper tools for our defense because "the police will protect you" take that story as a warning. The only thing those walking-piles-of-pig-shit should've gotten away with is multiple gun-shot wounds and a new respect for why you don't steal things other people worked hard to get.
I personally hope if the police find them they do try to resist, the little pole-smoking, sperm-dumpsters deserve to know what asphalt tastes like, as well as get to see the inside of a MoDOC facility. I'd prefer the former JCCC facility in Jefferson City, AKA THE WALLS, too bad its closed now.
*Not to include those that can't because of outside factors beyond their control.
