That’s why the Dead Old White Guys wanted folks to have guns.
Let’s imagine we are not in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee, os as in this case the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerk, and this young woman was “packing heat”. Say a “small 380” like a RUGER – LCP II with 7 in the magazine. OK, rerun the incident. The mob of 20 chase her, she stops, pulls out her gun, and takes a firing stance. Who’s going to be first to rush her? No one ever wants to be down range of a crazy woman with a gun; let alone one who’s in fear for her life! True, she only has seven shots. But I assume she’ll have extra mags. I bet the “mob” will beat feet for safer targets. And so what if she “puts down a few animals”? I’m pro-choice and pro-life, but the RKBA means the right to be secure in your person. Aggressors have no rights.
I’m firmly convince this would have be another in yet a long list of DGUs (Defensive Gun Use) incidents where no shots are fires and the threat disappears.
Bernie Goetz all over again. Mugged once; armed the next time.
