Why I Carry
*** begin quote ***
The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
*** end quote ***
Or, why I would carry if it was permitted in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee!
“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose
The essence of the RKBA is about self-defense. From criminals acting alone or in concert as the Gooferment.
Only we’re to dumb to realize what it’s all about.
