...spare me the usual nonsense about “Victim Blaming”. We don’t have time for silliness. If you’re banking on the goodwill of evil people to keep you safe, you are a sucker.**********
If I urge you to look both ways before crossing the street, I’m not victim blaming, I’m trying to keep your stupid ass from getting hit by a bus.
Unarmed self-defense is great, when it works. I’m a fan. Less-lethal devices like pepper spray are great, when they work.
But trust me on this, everybody who does this professionally, who has spent years learning about how violence really works, we all have guns.
I know many of you are scared of guns, but just think of them like fire extinguishers, but for (putting out) murderers.
RELATED: Shoot/no shoot
Here is another article where I go into a great deal of detail about when it is legal to shoot somebody. Trust me, I know more about this than the staff writers at Salon.**********
If somebody dressed entirely in Confederate flags walks up, screams DIE GAY ABORTION VEGAN and tries to stab you with his commemorative Heinrich Himmler SS dagger, it’s game on
UPDATE: Oh look... those evil guns...
...actually saved lives again today...
