      The analysis of the massacres at the Taj Mahal hotel are just getting
      started. It's still not yet known exactly how many victims there were
      or how extensive the attackers' preparations were. Some experts
      believe the al-Qaida bogeyman is to blame; others suspect religious
      elements of the Pakistani security forces, while India's martial
      preparations would appear to indicate suspicions of the Pakistani
      government itself.

      But the one thing that is obvious regardless of precisely how the
      attacks were planned and carried out, it is that governments and
      their professional agents are totally incapable of assuring
      individual security against terrorism. This was true in the 1970s
      when the Baader Meinhof gang was killing businessmen and the Japanese
      Red Army was shooting up airports. It is just as true today. Not even
      completely comprehensive surveillance and security is capable of
      preventing the actions of individuals who do not fear legal
      consequences; if the reverse were true, there would never have been
      any crime committed in the totalitarian states of the Soviet Union or
      the People's Republic of China.

      Because the government agents responsible for responding to terrorist
      threats are not machines but individuals who quite reasonably value
      their own lives, government reactions are always going to be either
      more widely lethal than the terrorist actions themselves or
      constrained to a slow process of containment. While the Indian
      government could have brought the recent incident to a speedy end by
      ordering the Indian air force to bomb the entire section of Bombay
      where the attacks took place, the cure would have been worse than the
      disease. The only alternative was the response that Americans have
      seen on their televisions time and time again: A small army of police
      encircling a building while unarmed citizens are slaughtered before
      their useless show of force.


      Even a physical police presence prior to an attack is no insurance of
      security. Military studies have shown that as many as 70 percent of
      trained soldiers will not fire their weapons at another human being
      even in wartime, so the probability is that most police officers will
      not either. Hence the anger of a photographer who had one of the
      train-station attackers in his sights, but no weapon more lethal than
      his camera:

      But what angered {photographer C.} D'Souza ... were the masses of
      armed police hiding in the area who simply refused to shoot
      back. "There were armed policemen hiding all around the station but
      none of them did anything," he said. "At one point, I ran up to them
      and told them to use their weapons. I said, 'Shoot them, they're
      sitting ducks!' but they just didn't shoot back."

      The stories of the Bombay survivors tell of helpless victims hiding
      for hours before being hunted down and murdered. There were nearly as
      many people hiding in one toilet cubicle as took part in the attack.
      If even a tenth part of the unarmed masses in the area had been
      armed, the siege would have been brought to an end in hours rather
      than days, saving hundreds of lives. But instead of relying upon
      themselves, they relied upon the government to protect them and in
      doing so paid the ultimate price.

      The truth is that no one will protect you – not the police, not the
      part-time security guard, not the staff of whatever business you are
      patronizing and not the national armed forces. You must take
      responsibility for protecting yourself, and the only means to do that
      is to ensure that you are appropriately armed whenever you intend to
      go out in public regardless of what the local laws might say.

      The law cannot abrogate one's right to self-defense; to the extent
      that it attempts to do so, it is inherently illegitimate and should
      be ignored. Don't fall for the false assurances of police and others
      who would prefer to possess a legal monopoly on the means of
      violence. They exist only to contain the damage and provide the
      allusion of security as well as post-facto deterrence. They are not
      there to protect you. No one is.
