The Supreme Court of the United States has since 1856 consistently ruled that law enforcement officers have no duty to protect any individual, despite the motto "protect and serve". Their duty is to enforce the law in general.

In 2005, The Supreme Court of the United States ruled that police do not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm.

Better get you a gun and protect yourself, the cops aren't here to protect you.

Don't get lost in the semantics of general duty. While the language may seem to suggest that police have no duty to protect, they do have a duty to enforce law. Of the laws they are tasked to enforce, many of them will inherently provide protection to the intended victim.
With that said, people owe it to themselves and their family to be able to protect themselves. At no fault of law enforcement, it is simply unreasonable to believe that police will be in the right place to protect you at all times.

I've heard so many people say "We don't need guns, that's what we have the Police for", and I'm thinking, are you really that stupid?

I guess they are.

Yeah, just because there are Fire Departments doesn't mean that smoke detectors and fire extinguishers aren't worthwhile.
