I pity people that are not allowed to defend themselves. (little MrT joke). Seriously, the criminals will have guns whenever they want them. Why not give law abiding citizens the chance to at least be on equal terms with the criminals? I would never live in cities or states that ban firearms. There is always too much crime.
Because turning a mugging into a homicide would've made this situation SO much better for everyone involved. Don't know about you, but I don't see the contents of my wallet as being worth ending another person's life over - why you would want a gun in a situation like this when you could have something practical like pepper spray or a tazer is beyond me.
85 Its called removing crime from the streets. Good example, Spiderman. Todays thug is tomorrows murderer. The criminal mind gains confidence every time he is successful, and is eventually willing to take on bigger and bigger jobs. People get killed during muggings pretty often as well. Just because he has your wallet does not mean you are safe.
See, I wouldn't have made the joke. Maybe if she thought you were a mugger as well, she wouldn't have tried to mug you. Solidarity and all.
That is why I wear steel toed boots. One swift kick to the ribs and bam , no more mugger.
7, I have a folding knife on my belt at all times. Not because I'm scared to be mugged or anything, I just use it for everyday purposes and for opening boxes at work. So I'm good if someone tries to mug me with a knife.. (Legal carrying limit here is under 4 1/2") and mine is exactly 4 1/2 so I break no law :) and I would never use it in a normal fight because that's just dumb and being a "pussy"
