Have you women ever thought

Have you women ever thought about carrying a stun-gun with you ? They are small and can be carried in the hand like a cell phone. They will put them on the ground in a hurry. Also pepper spray "ain't" no bad idea. SusieQ

A regular gun will put

A regular gun will put someone on the ground as well. A stun gun will only put a bad guy on the ground while you press the button. After that you'll have one [filtered word] off bad guy to contend with. Not the brightest of ideas. And...if you miss with a stun gun...you're screwed.

Suprise suprise, another

Suprise suprise, another [filtered word] out there hurting innocent people because they are a punk coward. I am so glad the victim was not injured more than she was and my best wishes for a speedy recovery. I hope his next victim is carrying also and stops him permanently.

Yesterday the Augusta Board

Yesterday the Augusta Board of Realtors posted a notice that a man, whose name I will not post, had threatened that he was going to go into a real estate office and shoot everyone there. Obviously, it didn't happen. But the world seems to have gone crazy. Just the left swing of the pendulum. We are living in the Wild West once again, and I guess the best defense is carrying.
