  •  How many didn't need guns to save themselves? (5+ / 0-)

    There was a mass murder event a couple days ago in my city.  A kid wiped out his family with his father's guns and decided to attack a shopping mall.  He called his little teenaged girlfriend to brag about what he had done.  This cunning young woman didn't freak out, she asked him to meet her at her church.  She sat with the kid and TALKED to him for a while before summoning adults to take control of the situation.  The shopping mall attack was averted by a teenaged girl using WORDS.

    How many homeowners have held off burglars with deadbolt locks and motion-sensitive floodlights?

    How many women have avoided rape by adopting a dog from the pound?

    How many young men are alive and happy when they walk away from a drunk at a bar rather than confront him?

    Your brain is your most useful self-defense weapon.

    This works on the macro scale as well.  If not for the guys who worked here, Britain would have surrendered and World War 2 would have lasted until 1950.  Not one trigger-puller in the bunch.
