    YOU THINK SO??? If you believe this, you damn well better be careful who you vote for in November, or at least better check their voting records so you know what you're getting on board with. This "Anti-Bush" bandwagon comes with a whole other mess of anti-constitutional baggage, just not Bush-style. Obama has voted for criminal persecution of those that use weapons, those not kosher by the letter of the law, PURELY for self defense by law abiding citizens with no priors whatsoever. Know what you're voting for, folks...

    Okay. Rant Officially Over.

    The knife man suffered "Bruising and swelling" from the blow. Nothing more.
    But what was the outcome?
    All of the offenders were arrested, only the one with the knife was charged. But what of our wounded store owner? When he got out of hospital he was charged with assault with a weapon.

    Remember he had been stabbed twice and had four guys beating the **** out of him. He took a swing with a stick to defend himself and has now been charged with assault with a weapon.

    The police said that using a stick to defend himself was "excessive force" for self defence. They said that what he should have done is called the police.

    So he was supposed to somehow call the cops whilst being killed at the same time, then wait three hours for them to actually turn up.

    Fucking stupid.
    :icon_conf

    WHAT THE ****!?!?!?!?!?!?
    That's ridiculous. Where did this happen? You have a link to a news article?

    I think she just meant that it's a lot easier to consistently carry around something like a pocket knife than to lug around an umbrella. And the thing with the weather goes both ways. I live in Pennsylvania and you're gonna look a little sillier carrying around an umbrella year round here. Then again there is always the option of having something to defend yourself that you keep in your car all the time. My friend keeps one of the big heavy mag-lite flashlights in his car all the time. It weighs about 3.5 pounds with the batteries and could be pretty easily employed to injure someone.

    I honestly would recommend MMA training to learn how to defend against weapons. So Dog Brothers would be an option if around, if not, grab some sticks and fight.

    Honestly, Matt Thornton said it himself too, it doesnt take a genius to swing a stick. Sure there are certain techniques that you need to learn, but if you can box, grapple and are in good shape, the stick and knife movements should come real easy to you.

    Grab a stick and some safety equipment (helmet with cage or goggles, groin cup, hockey cloves) and your set. Markers work good for knives or try the fancy fake ones that shock you so you know you got cut.

    I carry A LOT of **** around in my car within easy reach of any door. I'd rather have someone say I look silly for carrying an umbrella around full-time than get some undue attention for toting a 6-cell maglite around everywhere. Who cares what you carry in your vehicle? If you don't have it within arms reach all the time, it's no good.

    Oh, btw, wrap the batteries with electrical tape so they fit just right. A cop friend taught me that, said that it decreases the kinetic energy loss upon impact from battery rattle. Just smack your palm with it, it's like a solid cylinder.

    It would make it much easier to carry a gun.

    Precisely. Or more preferably a collapsible baton.

    Yeah.... hope springs eternal, now doesn't it? I don't foresee ever having the option to legally carry on campus in CA, just the way things are, even with a CCW permit. If you like carrying a gun, hell, if you enjoy OWNING a gun, don't vote for ol' Hussein Obama. He'll take them all away if he can.

    I dunno, if collapsible batons were legal, I'd be tempted to buy one and whack the **** out of people constantly. Especially the people who attempt to negotiate menu items in fast food joints while standing in front of me. "Can I have ONE McNugget? And wrap cheese around it. I'll buy it for fifty cents." OH GOD WHAM WHAM WHAM!
