Michael Brown is sick of the local sheriff encouraging qualifying citizens to protect themselves.
This isn’t really a quote, but the paraphrase of Brown’s statements from this article:
Despite what the sheriff may say Brown believes encouraging people to get a CWP isn’t the answer.
County Councilman Brown says law enforcement get more hours of training when it comes to weapons and they should be the ones protecting citizens. Sheriff Wright says he hasn’t heard from brown’s constituents who are upset over his comments and says he has an open door policy.
This is especially bad timing, given that a patron of a local Waffle House had to defend himself from what must have been a pair of misunderstood upstanding citizens.
Even if I were to concede the councilman’s point that the police are better trained (given the OCD of the gunblogging community when it comes to classes and training, I find that a bit hard to believe), the police have no duty to protect anyone.
Not you, not me, and certainly not the poor bastard who had to defend himself in a Waffle House in Spartanburg, SC.
What are we supposed to do, Councilman Brown?
