Illinois State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez Says No One Should Own Guns [Video]

The left never tires from trying to attack our most fundamental rights—namely, the First and Second Amendments.

Statistics do not back up the arguments of the left regarding “gun control”—quite the opposite—yet they keep pushing their agenda for ever more control and power.

Take, for example, the notion the police will protect you, as Alvarez stated in the video. Well, I’m sure most police would do their best to protect you, if they can, but the individual is the first line of defense for the individual. The police are not obligated or required by duty or law to protect the victim (via Free Republic):

Police have no legal duty to respond and prevent crime or protect the victim. There have BEEN OVER 10 various supreme and state court cases the individual has never won. Notably, the Supreme Court STATED about the responsibility of police for the security of your family and loved ones is “You, and only you, are responsible for your security and the security of your family and loved ones. That was the essence of a U.S. Supreme Court decision in the early 1980’s when they ruled that the police do not have a duty to protect you as an individual, but to protect society as a whole.”

“It is well-settled fact of American law that the police have no legal duty to protect any individual citizen from crime, even if the citizen has received death threats and the police have negligently failed to provide protection.”

On June 27, in the case of Castle Rock v. Gonzales, the Supreme Court found that Jessica Gonzales did not have a constitutional right to individual police protection even in the presence of a restraining order. Mrs. Gonzales’ husband with a track record of violence, stabbing Mrs. Gonzales to death, Mrs. Gonzales’ family could not get the Supreme Court to change their unanimous decision for one’s individual protection. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN FOLKS AND GOVERNMENT BODIES ARE REFUSING TO PASS THE Safety Ordinance.

Thus by a rather bitter irony she was required to rely for protection on the City of NY which now denies all responsibility to her.”

The ruling applies even for a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.
