More true words were never spoken. As there are less and less police on the force we are in more and more danger. Even with a full force the police can't be everywhere at any given moment. People need to start recognizing they need to be somewhat responsible for their own safety. There is of course more to this than getting a gun and some bullets. Safety classes, training classes and making sure your house is as secure as possible all fall hand in hand with self responsibility.
The problem with this is so many don't bother to be responsible for their own acts let alone be responsible for their own safety.
