In case the burger is served by a zombie...

I agree with the courts ruling however. People need to be responsible for their own defense.

What I don't agree with is the asinine regulations that prevented these young ladies from sending these guys to an early dirtnap... EIther way, somethings got to give eventually.

But what is it we are told, you don't need a gun call 911. I think the more people that know the truth the more they are apt to see our point and why gun control does not help a thing.

Actually it's this.

On July 18, 1984, James Oliver Huberty opened fire in a San Ysidro McDonald's restaurant, killing 21 people and injuring 19 others before he was slain by a police sharpshooter. At the time, it was the largest massacre in the United States.

Huberty, a 41-year-old unemployed security guard dressed in camouflage fatigue pants, walked into the restaurant armed with an Uzi semiautomatic rifle, a shotgun and a pistol and started shooting.

I would bet any amount of money that the casualties would have been much smaller had someone carried while buying a cheeseburger. So much for Portantino's ignorant quip.

almost never

For that matter you never need a gun, until you need a gun.

But I never need a fireman until I need a fireman either, but I want one on duty in my neighborhood at all times.....

And I never need my car, until I need my car. Good thing its available when needed. Likewise my gun will be available when needed.

the police do not have a legal responsibility to provide personal protection to individuals

obviously the only reason police exist is to police people.

I can't read the entire article after the summary, it makes me too sick.

Even if they did have a legal responsibility to protect individuals they wouldn't have the capability. They are there to enforce the law. Unfortunately we are starting to get laws more and more akin to a totalitarian state.

Yep that is a terrible case and one of the many that just go to show that Law Enforcement is not required to protect you and bears no responsibility for your well-being.

A better question would be "Why do legislators keep passing unconstitutional laws?" or "Why do people keep voting these azzhats into office?"

Of course, all of the biggest VIPs are either wealthy enough to hire their own private personal security, or they are provided personal security using my tax dollars. It's only the common plebs (like us) that are forced to defend themselves.

If the government cannot be held liable for negligence, when they have clearly made a mistake then why do we hold individuals and companies liable for negligence??? If I can't tell the government that I do not wish to pay taxes because of inadequate service, then shouldn't I be able to hold them to a reasonable level of competence?? I do understand the legal concept of "Sovereign Immunity" - I just think it sucks! :)

Seriously, how much does it suck going through all the paperwork if you're hungry?!

As for needing a gun to buy a burger, no one does, their just needs to be a gun present to stop a deranged murderer. I don't know this for sure but I bet some folks from Lubys Diner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luby's_massacre), Dennys (http://news.google.com/news/story?hl=en&safe=off&q=denny's+killing&gs_upl=&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1920&bih=955&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ncl=dQy3fmbHqF4o61M&ei=gC-HTsXyGMfkiAK9-bGhDA&sa=X&oi=news_result&ct=more-results&resnum=1&sqi=2&ved=0CCcQqgIwAA) or IHOP (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/09/07/gunman-kills-three-national-guard-members-one-other-in-shooting-rampage-at/) would probably have some feedback on things like necessity and desperation...the ones that survived, anyway. But that may be where we've all gone wrong, we apparently don't need a gun to buy a burger but to buy pancakes.

The police are almost never there to stop a crime in progress. They are there to mop up the mess, and arrest the victim.

The best Police investigations are done when the bad guy is still at scene.












At scene "resting under a white sheet with no pulse,"

The victom standing by,

and only a "one sided story" to told.

The only purpose the police serve is to investigate crimes THAT HAVE ALREADY HAPPENED, and then to try to catch the criminal who committed the crime.

They are a reactive force, not even that much of a deterent.

They do not "protect us" from anything. They draw the chalk outline and try to catch your killer.

We are each responsible for the protection of our own lives and the lives of our loved ones.

They do that to give you a false sense of security while telling you that you don't need guns to protect yourself and if you do try to use them it will do more harm than good. You are also more likely to kill little Timmy than the intruder.

In case THIS guy is also buying a burger?

Damn.

What a nutball in the San Ysidro McDonalds massacre!

The incompetence of the mental health worker who spelled "Huberty" as "Shouberty" is chilling and astounding.

But the mistake which occurred between the witness who reported him and the dispatcher is the one point at which, maybe, just maybe, something could have been done to prevent the incident.

Bizarre.

Now I know why I need an Uzi when I step out to buy a burger.

(Why does the OP give the wrong case? The case he cited is emblematic of the failure of DC gun control laws, but it has nothing to do with buying burgers.)

If the American public does not want to become cannon fodder like the innocent Mexicans in Mexico caught in the drug wars then they better start taking a more pro-active role in their own defense both against criminals and the government. There are so many murders committed today that few are being solved due to the overload. Police do not protect. The cops enforce laws on honest citizens because criminals do not pay attention to the law and it is much easier to catch an honest citizen making an honest mistake than a criminal trying to avoid capture. YOU are responsible for your own safety.
