Abolish police, and the Second Amendment becomes a first resort

Even in a world with fully-funded police, citizens require the means to protect themselves. But in a world where police become less effective or less competent (or possibly even more brutal), or vanish because of a misguided effort to defund them, there is no substitute for the right to keep and bear arms. People who are fearful of crime will be more likely to exercise that right, and it may not always be a good thing.

When public officials talk about abolishing the police, they need to consider all the consequences.

Suburbanites should be meeting to discuss logistics and communications.

Or do they assume that it'll all be like cowboy films?
