The real problem with 911

by Maximus

As anyone who has ever tried it knows, dialing 911 is at best an iffy proposition.Protect your kids?

IF you can get through…

IF the operator on the other end isn't asleep…

IF they were properly trained and actually give a damn…

IF there is a unit available to respond…

IF that unit is inclined to respond... (Remember they are not legally obligated to protect you, as proven in the Supreme Court.)

And finally IF the Police aren't afraid to show their faces in the neighborhood you happen to live in...

THEN you can expect to wait at least 15-20 minutes in most areas from the time you call to the time the police actually arrive to save you.

In 15 to 20 minutes you can be raped, murdered, burglarized, etc.

I don't think I'll be shocking anyone by saying that while I'm grateful for 911, I'm not going to trust my life and the life of my family to it.

But the real problem with 911 isn't that it's ineffective.

The real problem with 911 is the same problem with welfare, food stamps and a million other "services" the government provides. It breeds DEPENDENCY, and the more DEPENDENT one is on the government, the more power the government has over one.

I have friends from Northern Ireland, and the tales they tell of police "protection" are chilling. One man told me that in Northern Ireland, it is legal to buy a shotgun for the protection of your home, but you have to go through a police licensing system. I asked him why more Catholic families don't take this seemingly self-evident step to protect their homes against attacks by Protestant terrorists. His answer floored me.

He told me that if a Catholic man buys a shotgun for home defense, it is common practice for the Protestant controlled police to call the Protestant terrorist groups and tell them which homes have a gun in it so they can go to that home and steal it. According to my friend's experience, that is why Catholics don't buy guns for home defense in Northern Ireland.

The cops are some of the citizens' best friends, especially local Law Enforcement. However, one must not forget that the services they provide can easily be withdrawn or even turned against the citizenry if it suits the political leadership. The responsibility for home defense -- and security in general -- resides with the private citizen, and the less necessary the police are the less power the Government has over the individual citizen.

As always, we highly recommend Dial 911 and Die by Richard Stevens of JPFO (Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.) In fact, it should be required reading for every American junior high student and anyone who preaches to use the phone against 4 thugs who just broke into your home in the middle of the night.

The right of the people to keep and bear arms has been recognized by the General Government; but the best security of that right after all is, the military spirit, that taste for martial exercises, which has always distinguished the free citizens of these States....Such men form the best barrier to the liberties of America — Gazette of the United States, October 14, 1789.
