I’ll say it again. There is absolutely NOTHING that government does that could not be done better (more efficiently) by a private property-natural law based, for profit society. And that is up to and including the provision of protective and adjudicative services. Think secession (all the way down to the level of the individual household)!
Thus, if police are going to protect themselves while victims are at the mercy of gunmen, this illustrates that private gun ownership is perhaps the only reliable defense — whether in the hands of professional private security or even amateurs. Opponents of a police monopoly on gun ownership have seized upon this police failure as a helpful illustration of their position.
