    He has, he stabbed me with a 6" blade that was aimed for my chest. That mother****er deserved to die but all I could give him was a concussion and put my foot on his throat until the cops arrived.

    Dumbasses like that are no good to any children they have and what does that say about you?

    It says a lot about you. You probably laid a hand on one of his kids, instigating the incident. I notice you didn't claim that he ever attacked anyone else.

    I was walking back from Beale street to the hotel and he his intent was to rob me. Based on your comment above it is nice to know that trashy people side with other trashy people turning this country into one big landfill.

In the time it takes for a trained officer to pull a gun from a holster (a device designed for convenient gun access, incidentally, unlike a bloody purse), aim, and fire accurately, an attacker can cross 21-30 feet. A surprised civilian? Hell, I'm a freaking couch potato and I'm crossing half a football field before you get the gun out of your purse, lady. Waistband gun guy? Hell I don't even need a weapon, you'll probably shoot yourself trying to scramble the thing from underneath your jacket.

    Everybody thinks they're ****in Rambo.
    When I trained people, I trained when to display/go for your firearm and when not to do so. For officers I trained, it was on the single topic of demonstrating when not to.

    Where firearms save lives, prevent assaults and prevent crimes is 1.) NOT in surprise close attacks but when a sense of danger is in play, 2.) to an evolving worsening situation and 3.) when a person senses danger and displays a firearm in response to it.

    As my sig. line points out, the presence of a firearm avoids upwards of a million crimes a year. No shots fired. That is THE best reason to have a firearm of all - it avoids anything happening at all.

    However, to try to reverse it and claim because a firearm will not protect a person in 100% of situations therefore proves a firearm never serves a protective purpose is just false. Now and then I present when a person having a firearm - and shooting - saved innocent people's lives. Yet many times over, no shot fired at all prevents a crime, an assault or saves a life. That usually is in relation to an assailant, intruder etc who does not have a firearm but does have a weapon or is just greatly physically stronger. However, sometimes the assailant/intruder is armed with a firearm and still repelled.

    The video is on the topic of NOT waiting until a firearm is shown by "the bad guy" to draw or even to shoot.

If I had no gun they would have told me to go f*** myself when we hit the sign and laughed as they walked away.Yes guns empower.

    What you did actuallys strikes me as particularly illegal - assuming you're not a cop and depending upon which state.

    "Don't move" for 2 hours holding a shotgun on them for trespassing? Anyone reading this should NOT follow that course of action.

    People like you are the reason I have a gun. It's too bad your life was never in danger, some guy with a paring knife, enough weaker than you that you can subdue him barehanded. You think everyone else but you is trash, it's all in the eye of the beholder. You carry a gun because you believe everyone else's life is worth less than yours, and you're hoping for another opportunity where you are able to subdue a guy with your bare hands, so that next time you can shoot the guy you were able to subdue with your bare hands, and call it self defense instead of what it is, ugly hate.

    Hate is someone that would approach a law abiding citizen on the street to rob, inflict injury, and leave them for dead preventing them from ever seeing their family again. People like you is why pieces of **** continue to do this without serious reprecussions. You should start visting prisons on Sunday and help rehabilitate these fine men you seem so fond of, maybe as a bonus you can work in a few conjugal visits for a few more. I am sure they would appreciate your efforts.

    I know, it is disgusting. I provide for my family by working yet some people here cheer people that try to kill others to support theirs and then they complain about guns when the real issue is behavior.

    you have a gun because of victims of violent crime?.... and utterly wierd thought process you have there.

    I dunno. it seems as though you have a certain fondness for the criminal .. and are showing quite a bit of hate for the victim here.....why is that?
