    Seriously? In response to being raped or abducted?

    Exactly. At least then you have a chance at survival.

    I guess you would rather have women relinquish their Constitutional rights and become a victim. There's always at least one in the crowd.

    Well wow - it is VERY nice to see someone finally advising what women SHOULD be doing to protect ourselves rather than telling us what we SHOULDN'T be doing or where we SHOULDN'T be going.

    I also agree on the note of the failure of the judicial system to lock up the hacks, crooks and thugs.
    He is merely doing what any responsible sheriff should do. A firearms is a great equalizer and enables a physically weak person to stand up to a strong person.Unlike a stun gun if you miss you have several or more shots depending on the type of firearm. While the shots are going off someone will hear those gunshots and call 911,so in a why a firearm also serves as a whistle. The police are more like crime historians or archeologists.A crime happens they investigate the scene,they interview people, they take photographs of the scene, they look at evidence and gather evidence to be analyzed by other experts and anything else to help them solve the crime. I am not putting down the police its just a simple fact. The police are not psychic,police are not posted on every corner and they do not have Mistress Cleo's number. So they can not be there to protect everyone 24/7.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I mean, i get your point, not all bullets find their targets. But we are talking about hand guns that fit in a purse. Something with an effective range of about 50 yards. First of all, most rapists are not going to target and act in an area where there would BE an innocent bystander, for fear of interference or "being made" in a line up. Think...large empty parking lots, inside of a house/apt, or deserted park of some kind.

    There is, and always will be a CHANCE that someone not involved could take a bullet. By they are no MORE innocent than the women who was about to be violently raped.
    If there are innocent people nearby you have less chance of being attacked. At any rate, if you have the gun and the training then you have the option to decide if you should use it or not use it. No gun, no option. Simple as that.

    That's my bud, Chuck Wright. We don't screw around in SC, we shoot the bastards, quite regularly.


    The other day, some folks who'd been having trouble with scrap-metal thieves caught two in their barn. They confronted them; one thief made a threatening gesture and was shot in the arm with a shotgun. Property owner who fired the shot was not arrested nor "taken downtown" nor otherwise inconvenienced.... our Atty General has ruled that police cannot arrest a homeowner who shoots an intruder without reasonable cause to beleive it was NOT self-defense.

    We have extended Castle Law out to your yard, outbuildings and vehicle, and no duty to retreat in any public place.
