    Maybe I should start one asking: "Should a woman be able to use a firearm to prevent being raped and her and her whole family murdered?"
    Do it !
    I am NOT of that opinion at all...this poll is of value, intelligent ideas can be shared....we do have some liberals and semi-liberals here..
    As to the woman...any means available, I favor the quick and very "hurtful" non-lethal , but if she is carrying an AK-47 or a M-1...so much the better ...

    In theory, I agree. But when it is someone you know....

    Non-lethal is the answer.
    Lethal weapons for our police....this is where I feel the England is wrong..
    And plenty of ammo and weapons for our hunters, plus open season on deer.
    Sounds like you want open season on women and children too.

    Pshaw.
    No, absolutely not (I don't claim to be a mental health expert) - however, my doctors and therapists (and I have seen - over the years, mind you - the best in the country) agree with me on this..... Look, I suggest you re-read Goshin's post (and carefully) - for it is, for the most part, right on. The key here is, of course, letting the DOCTORS make the decision, NOT the client....

    I completely agree - Goshin is usually spot on with his comments.
