"To Serve and Protect" was the motto of several police departments.
I think that was painted on cars of New Orleans police during Katrina (the hurricane).
The people who say "guns are not needed because we have police" have forgotten that the police serve the community, not the individual.
(Yep, that is another point to tell your anti-2A friends, but they won't believe you.)
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
