I guess those who do their jobs properly aren't news material which results in selective perception. Their public image isn't as dire IMHO.It's not when we have far too many cops behaving horribly because there's little to no accountability. It's not unfair when they're constantly in the news for killing someone because they were "scared" or used excessive force. These people are in position of authority, there's no excuse for them, and they should be held to a higher standard instead of having their actions justified. I mean, Chicago (I think?) cops were recently caught planting evidence to throw people in jail.
No it is not. It's me defending guns/looking at both sides. We need stricter gun laws, but at the same time guns can be useful in defending someone. And what if it's just one robber who may not even be expecting the gun? Obviously if there are more than one robber, then you shouldn't be fighting back, but that depends on the situation as well.
A gun is a tool of defense if and only if it deters people from committing crimes, fighting fire with fire isn't defense, it's mutual destruction IMHO. When everybody has guns, it's much more likely that some criminal you encounter will also have a gun and it's much more likely that he will expect you have a gun. These criminals are often under the influence of drugs or aren't thinking clearly either way, if you bet your chances on them being scared away, that will rarely work IMHO and more often than not, someone will get hurt because of the threat of gunfire. Also people usually rob houses when owners aren't at home and you can't carry your gun everywhere, so however I do the math, widespread use of guns doesn't make the society better IMHO.
That said, it's not as if some random guy's opinion will have any bearing on gun policy and if other people have guns, it's your constitutional right to get one for whatever reason. I don't criticize you or anybody just because you exert your right, I just state my overall view on guns and it's probably very optimistic for the current conjuncture. Strict gun laws are certainly for the better but it's difficult to stop guns from falling into the wrong hands, so they may not have the intended result IMHO.
