I take it even further, saftey courses, marksmanship courses are not enough. You NEED to take a home defense course, and you need to practice and drill this until it becomes instinct.
Training on how to fight with a gun is as important as handing the gunshop your credit card.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
I'm not saying this because I'm opposed to the idea...
I think it's sad that we live in a day and age where home defense courses are a necessary part of life.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I hear what you say bro... but the world has never been a safe place.
Victorian London had such crime problems that it was worth your life to go out after dark in many neighborhoods.
Even the 1950's in America had plenty of issues regarding violent crime.
While it would be lovely if we lived in a world where personal safety wasn't so hard to come by, I'm too pragmatic to really worry over that too long... it's always been that way to some degree. I'm just glad that so many people are having their eyes opened to the need for self-protection...and the hope that this trend really will "take a bite out of crime" in a big way.

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
"An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it." - Gandhi
It's sociopathic scumbags like the attempted rape/murder/robbers like these that give/force the need for SELF protection.
In all honesty, with people like this in the world (and they will NEVER be completely removed from our society) I don't understand why any citizen would not only give up their own rights but the rights of others.
Sigh... Ideally there would be absolutely no NEED for CCW, tactical training, and a naughty little boomstick under my shoulder... but as the saying goes, "Want in one hand..."
I think the Death Penalty is the only suitable punishment for those who wish to rape a woman. What a sick bastard, kudos to the students.
