    If not now...when?

    General rundown: There's been a male attacker sexually assaulting and attempting to sexually assault women in the reston area of Northern VA. He pops up out of nowhere around sidewalks and/or bike trails and drags them into wooded areas while holding a knife to them.

    If you have a wife, daughter, sister, or mother living in the area who has as of late been against the idea of CCW, now might be a good time to bring that conversation back up!

    There was an attack again last night, but thankfully the victim was able to get away.

    We could maybe hope before too long, this slimeball chooses the ''wrong'' victim

    Unfortunately most people think, A. It will never happen to me, and B. I could never hurt someone. That usually changes when they have a big scare thown into them. I hope they get this bum soon too.

    Really? I haven't heard about that. Do you have a link to a news story?

    Actually it was Williamsburg, foreign workers in the tourist industry being targeted. Read towards the end of the article about other women involved.
