Self defence.

Is it time that we armed ourselves for protection due to the increasing number of terrorist attacks? Even if we carried a knife, it would enable some form of defence to help ward off characters who were a dangerous threat to ourselves and others in close proximity. By the time police or security forces arrive, much of the damage has been done. Without a weapon of some sort, we are always vulnerable to attack.

I think without the proper training, people arming themselves might create a lot more problems than it solves. The way I see it, we need to stop the problem before it gets to our doorstep. There is no nice way of stopping the problem, without negatively impacting some poor people who just need a safe place to live.

You hear it every time there's a horrible attack, some amazing heroes step up and put themselves in great danger- often suffering terrible injuries- to prevent further harm to innocent people, when they could just have easily hidden under a table and looked after themselves.

Cowardly attackers will always have the element of surprise, because the low lifes have zero integrity and the rest of us just dont see the point of an indiscriminate attack.
Carry a sharpened pencil and stick it in their eye


You can't get done for carrying a weapon

But it is effective grin

Pat8 - If someone is about to attack you, you don't think, well I can't do anything because I haven't had the training. Training is for wimps.
Well...hell YEAH, crown! cheers

I'm kinda partial to the next general of mini 9s.
Very good for concealed carry.
Hell...you can pack one of those li'l pea shooters in a swimsuit!
Seriously!

mic lee -- Completely agree with you. At last some sense.

Training might be for wimps, I see some smaller police women and I'll bet they've had some training. Without it, they'd just be introducing a weapon into the fight.

Remind us how many innocent people are shot in America each year? Get up in the night for a pee and be shot, mistaken for an intruder?

I'm all for taking the bad guys out the back and shooting them, but I'd prefer to keep the bad guys out of my country in the first place.
Society carrying weapons, a lot of thought should go into that one. Drug addicts, and alcoholic being prevalent everywhere don t need weapons, they re volatile enough. Would petty disputes be settled with weapons......
You mentioned weapons, knives would lead to guns, then bigger guns..... where would it end.
I do think something should be done, maybe more police and military personal being present, and that would put us in a military state, dunno
How about a better effort in not letting terrorists into the country,dunno These terrorists have their , religious beliefs, maybe ban certain religions from entering the country, yes I know theres religions of peace , tell that to the victims of the last terrorist attack.
But the idea of carrying weapons, I don t agree with, but I do agree with the idea of something being done.
More Americans are shot by toddlers with their parents' guns, than by terrorists.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it wine

Stupid man I shake my head in disbelieve--- this is a dating site so when i am asked for a date do i say " oh by the way have you a pea shooter"

In self defense of my immune system, human behaviour is to smoke some Swedish cannabis in a pretentious way, whilst concocting theories about DuPont fluoridating the water supply.

Part two...

While all this was happening, Molly and Redex were fighting over an octopus tentacle like 2 staffys with a piece of rope, which was only possible after they went to Amsterdam to get false teeth, whilst Pats eyes were hanging out of his head in a thick cloud of acrid dope smoke.
I'd offer Red the first choice of tentacle


But Only I know which the real tentacle is grin

Yep miclee but our armed police force were there in minutes and shot a bloke dead whilst people help him back until they got there 3 mins police trained to shoot to kill.

Non of the civillians have gone to press (except this dud above) to ask for weapons.

When it was announced that Harriet Tubman was going to replace Andrew Jackson on the U.S. $20 bill, there was some concern about how Conserv'tiv Republicans would react to the change.

Observed one such Conserv'tiv...
"They replaced the slave-holding founder of the Democrat Party with...
a gun totin',
Democrat shootin',
2nd Amendment suppotin',
Republican
Black Woman.
LIFE IS GOOD!" thumbs up

there is so much mental illness that i wouldn't put a butter knife in the hands of many people. the thing about being a victim is to be aware of your surroundings. if you get a creepy feeling, get out. you have to be in tune with the people and things around you. it is part of the natural order of things. to be aware and on edge to survive. when one becomes lazy or at the whim of another is when we are abused. we have the right to say no and the right to remove ourselves from a bad situation. if that is not possible, we must make a plan that takes time and patience. i am working on such a plan.

be smart. don't do anything stupid. don't look for anything that isn't on the up and up. don't put yourself in a position of vulnerability. again, don't be freaking stupid. the price for love is not a death certificate
Back Again, Freehand you mentioned that butterknife, well here in Western Canada ,one of the most dangerous weapons there is, is the kitchen table knife, (domestics). Just think if all kitchen table knives disappeared what would the weapon of choice be, confused

Who is Gary?...lol...laugh

Nothing wrong with peace or gun control...better yet treating people fairly and not incarcerating people long term...and not treating them as sub human...we are a product of our environment...fear and loathing is or was the "theme" of the US election...

The Canadian election was the opposite...sunny ways...wine

Bernie has a good point...regarding gun control...



Hmmm, thinking back over terrorist attacks I can remember they've used as weapons an airliner, car bomb, AK 47's, 40 ton truck, large van, suicide vest, axe & machete, good luck going up against someone who wants to die using your knife doh
