    I don't believe killing someone who would steal from you is the right thing to do, but if they are threatening your life or rape that is different.

    The best way to help others understand and experience God's love better is to understand and experience it better yourself.

    Understanding and experiencing God's love better everyday is the most important task for anyone who considers him/herself to be a Christian.


    Love without truth is deception. Truth without love is arrogance. God's love and God's truth balanced is God's wisdom.

    The more one promotes himself and/or his ideas, the less he cares about eternal life for others.

    It'd have to be some strong wasp spray. I've gotten nailed my some. Annoying, but it wouldn't put me down while the adrenaline is pumping.

    Nothing beats good, old-fashioned bear spray. De-escalation in a can.

    If they are attacking you with a knife or baseball bat you have every right and justification to fear for your life - which is main reason to pull out your gun.

    If it is a matter of just handing them your wallet, that is the safest thing to do.

    A great deterrent strategy is to have a money clip in your pocket with several one dollar bills surrounded by a five or ten dollar bill. When accosted, pull it out, let them see the outer bill and say this is all I have, then throw it far from you and run like your life depended on it.

    Every government that took guns away from the people were killed by that same government. We have the right to bears arms for a reason. We cannot let them take our right away.

    I think that would be called a "gunfight"....

    Although, I imagine that most criminals who KNEW the proposed victim was armed would opt for an un-armed one, given the choice..

    In reply to being attacked from behind... One of the first things they tell you in any self-defense class is to always be aware of your surroundings... especially if you are someplace where you're alone. Listen for someone walking behind you and glance back to get a look at that person. If they seem dangerous, you can place your hand on your weapon and get ready to use it. It would also be wise to make an abrupt change of course or step several feet off course and let them pass. If they come towards you, take aim! And tell them not to come any closer. At that point it is a self-defense matter.
