Running away from someone intent on harming you and who is faster than you, generally means you are going to be hurt badly or killed.
    Gotcha by a few years but no knee problems. I do however have my own ghost where running away is not on the table, maybe except for better cover. Close by.

    You would have to mention knees. I'm 65 and for the first time in 50 years I managed to twist my knee and pull a couple of ligaments. It hadn't done that since I was playing basketball in high school. My high school football coach thought I would be fast since I was 6'-6" at age 16. He initially made me a running back, then found out just how slow I truly was. I ended up playing defensive tackle.

    Even if I could run, I wouldn't. It isn't in my nature. I don't go looking for trouble, but I don't run from it either.

    Your talking about one city... not the country..


    If one city did ban guns, never gonna happen but hypothetically, that would not be the federal government banning guns..

    The fact guns are not allowed in schools does not equal a national ban..obviously.

    That said, I would be shocked if your account is even accurate.

    If you or your family/friends cannot SAFELY escape , then it is perfectly legal to kill someone who is attacking you..


    Stand your ground and such is ONLY relevant when you CAN safely escape and choose not to..

    So your knees are TOTALLY IRRELEVANT..

    And because of that, it is far more likely your family is raped and murdered than you play Rambo and save the day...

    You might get lucky, but call me crazy , Im not trading the lives of my loved ones for my own prideful ghosts..

    I don't need your, or anyone else's, permission to defend myself. I don't run from anything. I'm also not the least bit concerned about humans. I will take whatever steps I feel are necessary to defend myself, and nobody is going to tell me otherwise.
