when I was in New Haven, I couldn't own a pistol on campus. and my residential college was on the corner of campus and a short cut to an area I had to go to at least twice a week was from a scrub field at some point, gangs of 3-4 "utes" would mug students there with baseball bats. SO I had the perfect counter solution-a can of military grade CS gas and a Gerber Mark II. never had to deploy that combination though

Registered Republican but apparently no longer welcome in the party....I suppose I'm a RINO in todays world.
I do keep a gun (pistol - small 25 caliber so the wife can use it quick) in the night stand. And, one just inside the closet (a Ruger Mini-30 with multiple large capacity mags).
Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
