Reasons to carry a gun

1. The police can't be counted on to save you.
a gunman stormed a council meeting and opened fire, killing two police officers and three city officials.

The cops were already there, and couldn't react in time. What happens if you have to dial 911, first?

2. Restraining orders are meaningless.
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio—Christi Layne was terrified of her husband, court records and her attorney say. After she moved out, she got a restraining order against him and had an alarm system installed.

But none of that mattered Thursday morning when he marched into a Catholic school, fired a gun and then stabbed her—right in front of her class of fifth-graders.

This one comes with a corollary that gun-free zones don't stop the criminals.
