Reducing police funding exacerbates the police situation and solves nothing. In fact, more funding should be provided for training, selection and promotion.
You can see the tremendous destruction of property where the police did not effectively address the criminal element involved. Once people lose confidence in the ability of the police to protect them and their property, then the sale of guns will soar. A very dangerous situation for our country will result.
