NC Sheriff Tells Residents to Arm Themselves
« on: August 07, 2014, 05:43:10 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

An armed society is a polite society. One of the safest places to be, with the most elaborate politeness protocols, is a high security prison.

Except in pre-civilization societies like the Middle East.  However, in Detroit the crime rate has dropped over 30% since the people were told  to arm themselves.  Its hard to believe Detroit is more civilized than many of the societies in the Middle East.

Which is why I carry all the time at home now.

Good. A weapon don't do shit if you can't get to it rapidly. Wish more people had the sense to realize home is not in fact a freaking castle.

Exactly.  When seconds count, the police are only minutes away...
