These criminals don't learn that citizens are armed now. They have taken classes on self protection and the law has taught them when they can use deadly force.

It's great that armed citizens have the capability to fight back if avoidance is not an option. An armed citizenry is the only way to deal with armed criminals, rapists, and gangs. And police, although most of them put their lives on the line, are not there most of the time and do not have the manpower to put in around the clock police protection. And they are usually only there to clean up the mess, make arrests, and gather evidence, including testimonies. Police are also not obligated to protect the individual, only the public and important govt. officials (ex.=Mayor Daley of Chicago who always relies on 24-hr. police protection).

There is nothing so great other than a righteous self-defense. Also saves the taxpayers money too as well as saving more rooms for the jails/prisons.
