I don’t get it. Tell me why I am NOT in practice already being ‘beaten up on’ as an honest enployee, at least sonewhat.
Your logic apoears to suggest that I am, and that I should probably march up to the boss and demand 24/7 access to the company fuel card with no corresponding duty to provide receipts, or account for my use of either the card or the vehicle. Isn’t that the level of trust hat an honest employee is entitled to?
By the same logic inposing a legal drinking age is ‘beating up on’ responsible ypung adults; as the irresponsible will just ger false IDs or get around the law in other ways.
So is random breath testing. So is requiring rigorous testing before you can be licensed to drive. So are random tax audits.
So are lots of things you don’t seem to be giving a second thought to.
I believe Jesus meant it when he said ‘he who lives by the sword will die by the sword.’ I do believe in a God given right to self-defence, but I don’t believe in an unfettered or relatively unfettered right to own guns. I think the military and police should concentrate much more on being well-trained (particularly in unarmed defence tactics) as lack of training makes arms almost completely a moot point.
I have lived in some rough neighborhoods in my time and have exercised common sense safety precautions and survived without packing.
Those times my safety has been compromised, and there have been a few but nothing serious, I am confident that no amount of weaponry would have helped.
