It takes away every attempt of the city to protect us. Whether or not you believe the city does that . . . it does take away any ability for the city to protect us
According to the poll cited in the second paragraph of this article, 61% of Californians don't "believe the city does that," and/or have decided to pass on their cities' benevolence and to take protection of their property into their own hands.
