New Bill Preserves Right to Self Protection

March 31, 2007

The following quotes from the H.R. 73IH bill are

(A) The courts have consistently ruled that the police do not have an obligation to protect individuals, only the public in general. For example, in Warren v. District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department, 444 A.2d 1 (D.C. App. 1981), the court stated: `[C]ourts have without exception concluded that when a municipality or other governmental entity undertakes to furnish police services, it assumes a duty only to the public at large and not to individual members of the community.’.

(B) Former Florida Attorney General Jim Smith told Florida legislators that police responded to only 200,000 of 700,000 calls for help to Dade County authorities.

(C) The United States Department of Justice found that, in 1989, there were 168,881 crimes of violence for which police had not responded within 1 hour.”

The Left, The Right, and the Bill of Rights

March 1, 2007

Whenever I hear a liberal complain about the Patriot Act or something like that, I simply point out, “The Government is simply driving through the hole you left in the Bill of Rights when you ripped out the 2nd Amendment.”
