I can barely see my only neighbor's house and even that is hard to do when the trees still have their leaves. Zero crime rate out here but I carry all day, every day. There are animals crossing my property that could hurt me, random strangers do break down and show up at least a few times a year. It has been years, but we did have a crackhead attempt to steal from us. He also made threats when he got out of prison but that also ended badly for him.
A long way to say I agree with your meme, no firearm does anyone any good if it is not available when needed and the operator doesn't know how to use it.
Additionally, no place is safe in a country without borders, massive drug abuse and limited law enforcement. I am not a fan of red or yellow laws, cops have enough to do without being underpaid social workers. A mentally ill person could be triggered just by cops arriving and both parties would soon be endangered. Laws alone cannot stop violence, and there doesn't seem to be any national pressure to address violence, mental illness or lack of resources, so violence is here to stay.
