    Then wait a year.
    When the survivors beg them to come back and restore order to what's left of their cities,
    SAY NO.
    Your thread reminds me of the movie, "Escape from New York". In the movie they just seal off New York and place criminals there to fend for themselves.

    It really isn't that different from the reality in Detroit right now, except that it isn't really necessary to seal off the city, and place criminals there. Nobody in the suburbs wants to go there, even to shop, and the criminals tend to go there because it's easy pickings. Typical response time to a criminal assault is over a half hour. If you are crook and can't get away with that kind of lead time, it's time for a change of occupation.

    Seriously, the cops have it bad. They attempt to patrol the same number of blocks and miles of streets they did when there were 2 million residents. Now half or more of those blocks are vacant or near vacant. There are blocks where every resident is some kind of criminal, and the news that the PO PO are coming is way ahead of the sirens.

    I fail to see why you think that is a good idea other than it might reduce your taxes slightly (but all your gains will be stolen from you).

    And those ...[text shortened]... pid Americans are that they gave up having cops because they simply couldn't take any criticism.
    You forget that we still have the second amendment here for those that want to use it.

    The eighteenth amendment was a big mistake. The second amendment is not a mistake. 😏

    well, if you say so, it must be true. why bother with the fact that people (lots) die because of your gun culture and inadequate laws. what's important is that you have said the second amendment isn't a mistake.

    We are a better country because of our gun culture.

    We have adequate laws, but inadequate enforcement of those laws because of the liberal culture of the left-wing Democrats.

    Yes, indeed, the second amendment has proven to be a very important addition to our Constitution.
