Says Republican Congressional candidate Dan Sebring, who’s gearing up to get drubbed at the polls again in 2014:
We The People can do a far better job of both personal protection and public safety than any organized law enforcement.
Putting aside the fact that open carry/concealed carry lawsdon’t necessarily produce lower crime rates, I can cite bunches of incidents that completely undermine Sebring’s argument.
For example, there’s THIS, THIS, THIS, and THIS, and I could go on and on with examples to refute Sebring’s argument that “We The People” can do a better job of personal protection and public safety than organized law enforcement.
What’s more, Sebring’s contention that citizens with little (if any) training can do a better job of public safety than highly trained, skilled law enforcement officers is an absolute slap in the face to those officers.
