With cuts in police department budget, City Attorney Tells San Bernardino Residents To ‘Lock Their Doors,’ ‘Load Their Guns’

Why is it so inappropriate for the San Bernardino City Attorney to tell people to protect themselves when the police aren't able to do it?
The city attorney of San Bernardino is under scrutiny for telling residents to “lock their doors and load their guns” during a city council meeting. 
The official explained that because the city is bankrupt and slashing public safety budgets people will need to start protecting themselves. 
City Attorney Jim Penman said he doesn’t regret what he said. 
“You should say what you mean and mean what you say,” Penman said. . . .
Besides the politically correct outrage, the other sad thing about this advice is that it is essentially telling people that they have to be locked up inside their homes.  It would be nice if California joined the rest of the country and let people defend themselves when they are outside their homes.

I was just on Coast-to-Coast AM to discuss these statements.
