You don't need a handgun strapped to your pajamas to protect your family or home from invasion.
    what if you live in a ranch? Or sleep on the first floor?

    Well count me among the scary-folk then.

    I believe that individuals are responsible for their own security. However i also believe that the government plays a role in providing security from internal and external threats. I don't understand how you can separate a police officers responsibility to protect society, from his responsibility (or lack there of apparently) to protect individuals. Society is made up of individuals.
