I'm with you there. I know I'm a law abiding citizen. I also typically am armed.
I have nothing to fear legally from cops, so any action they take against me is
by definition illegal action, and I am legally able (and justified) to defend
myself against such *felonious* criminal actions by police. Any jurisdiction
which would treat me any differently is, by definition, a tyranny. Insisting on
living under tyranny implies the acceptance of that tyranny, if the means and
ability to leave that tyranny exist. If you fear such tyranny, vote with your
feet. If you don't, its like not voting: you don't get to complain.
