    If I pull a trigger in self defense, someone should be on their way to the morgue.

    Jesus fuck, if you are too scared to walk through a parking lot, you shouldn't have parked there in the first place.

    he's trying to say the gun caused her to make a bad decision in the first place. I think she should be free to walk through a damn parking lot though.

    i know rite? who says walking through a parking lot is a bad decision? sure, there are better ways to do it (as he said, get a security escort), but that would make me feel MORE paranoid; as if there were a reason WHY i needed the escort in the first place.

    :werd: I commend her for taking charge of her life and defense, rather than having to be nervous all the time.

    Agreed. Avoidance is the key. If you think it's not a safe spot, with or without a gun? DON'T GO THERE. Just having a gun doesn't make you fearless, or at least it shouldn't.

    I like how it has gone on for 3 pages now and even though the guy clearly stated in his first post he was going to get a gun and training, that no one has given any real input in what kind of weapons or training to get. The state's standing with "stand your ground rules" or any input on the CCW policy of the state. It has turned into a pro-gun anti-gun debate.

    I had my posts in mind, rather than anyone else's. I'm kind of a prick, and it comes through even just posting on OT. :o

    ugh. that guy makes me sick. chastising that woman for being a victim. saying she's dumb for daring to walk to her car.

    I REFUSE to live in fear. FUCK THAT.

    I agree, I'm not going to do something dumb and obviously stupid, like walk through a bad area of town at 2 am in a suite, that common sense, but calling the mall cops for a ride to your car? Fuck living in that constant fear and more importantly fucking having to rely on others for your security.

    Sounds like carrying a gun enabled her to not have to fear walking across a goddamn parking lot.

    that's what really kills me. These people say I'm living in fear, but they CALL THE GOD DAMN GUARDS TO WALK THEM TO THEIR CAR IN A GOD DAMN PARKING LOT. Jesus H Christ, I can't even imagine being that dependant on someone else for my protection. Not to mention that the "guard" that is walking them (or rolling them in their golf cart) isn't armed or trained and the total of his "protection" is calling 911 for you while you're getting raped/mugged/murdered.

    And seriously... are you going to wait around for someone to walk you through your entire life?
