I thought now might end up being a time we might see some justification for all this stuff said to be needed to protect "the people," but I hear store owners are having to rely on themselves and their own weapons for protection as law enforcement rolls right past. What gives? What exactly is their point in having the additional help and equipment? Self-protection? I haven't read everything so I may be missing a lot. That idea just really stood out in my mind as not sounding right when I saw the business owners and read what they are saying.
