DGU of the Day: Police Fail to Clear Man's House, Leaves Him to Deal with Burglar

This is another great illustration of why YOU are responsible for your own safety:

76-year-old shoots burglary suspect after finding him hiding in closet

Police "cleared" his home and then left to search the area.  Apparently, they didn't do a good enough job and this 76 year old vet had to do the job himself.

If anti-2A folks had their way, then this man could have been easily dead by the time the police came back to tell him they hadn't found the suspect.  Do not ever turn your self defense weapons in, ever.  When you give that up, then you are at the mercy of your "public servants" and their inability (in this case) to keep you safe.


  1. Reminds me of the premise for Warren v Distict of Columbia. Police have no duty to protect you. You alone are responsible for your own safety.

    Homeowner was a Ranger...robber got lucky Mr. Winder didn't feel like killing him.

    1. Exactly. A lot of folks aren't aware that the "To Serve and Protect" mantra was rendered a load of crap by the case you cited.

      Folks, the police have no duty to protect you. They only have a duty to enforce the laws.

  2. Castle Rock v Gonzales is another good example. As recently as 2005 the SCOTUS told us to suck it. It's too bad it took the hijacking of the White House to get Americans to arm themselves.
