    I just got finished reading this U S Supreme Court decision and still hear law enforcement agencies still insist that they protect us (the people)depsite this ruling and other later court decisions. Why is this?

    MP, sometimes i wish they would tell the truth ,instead of trying to convince the sheep that they can and will protect them.maybe then we could get the politicians to fix the laws so that the law abiding could actually defend ourselves 8)
