    Exactly, I carry a handgun as well. It's a tool for protection against regular criminals, anyone who wants to be a smart ass can invent a scenario where anything you do is not enough to prepare. Like in another form someone asked me what I would do if I was attacked by three terrace with fully automatic rifles and body armor, "well I guess it's my day to die then" however for normal threats a handgun is perfectly adequate security measure

    I agree with this. I don't feel any fear personally, partly because of where I live and what I do (and don't do). But I'm still concerned about safety in general and know it's a potential that needs to be addressed.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Personally, no, even though I personally knew 3 men who were killed in the WTC attacks.
