Plain and simple, if it's not close by and ready, you are toast because they will wait till you least expect it.
These puke bag States need to eliminate the Castle Doctrines and allow normal Law abidding Citizens to go on the offensive. They won't do that tho, because they all get too much money from the Federal Government for Police who seem to have the attitude (in NY) that only they should have guns.
Anytime a system is created on tax money, there is corruption. Not allowing citizens to protect themselves is just one example.
Would that 20 Y.O. punk showing crack, while bee-bopping around in public give you lip if he knew you had a .45 under your shoulder?
It shouldn't be the law abidding such as myself who have to bite our tongues!
