The 9-1-1 Mentality — NRA Life of Duty

“If someone is breaking into your house, your duty at that time is to protect your children or yourself.”
“I’ve never met a cop said I really hope she ain’t got a gun in there. Every call I’ve ever answered you hope and pray that the innocent people involved have a way to protect themselves. And that may not be a gun. Maybe a knife it may be a rolling pin, post and pans. I mean, I’m not telling you that you have to own a gun, and you have to train with it. I’m telling you that you need to prepare yourself to be able to protect yourself.”
