    My question is How do you inform those who refuse to be informed? Make believers out of those who refuse to believe?

    There are those who which, even if violent crime were to visit them on a personal level, they would still choose to disarm the law abiding.

    That is not only sad... but it angers me and troubles me greatly!

    How do you get through to someone who is supposed to possess the same capacity for logic as the rest of us do, but refuse to see the light?
    Ask them if their vehicle has a spare tire.

    Ask them if there are fire extinguishers where they work.

    Ask them if they know the telephone number to call for help in a true emergency.

    Ask them if they have life insurance.

    Ask them if they have locks on their doors at home.

    Then, ask them.......WHY? After all, how often do you NEED any of those things?

    This is why I carry a Gun:

    This was from a 45 Glock loaded with a Black Talon





    I sustained a torn Subclavian Artery,Fractured Scapula and Three Broken Ribs,

    And all out of trying to save a Life.. And the Perp only had to do three years. If I would have had a CCW then I dont think this X-Ray would have been taken of Me.

    Self preservation! A friend of mine knew that I was packing when I was over his place for a visit and he asked me if I was expecting trouble around the corner. I told him that I practice what the Boy Scouts taught me...........To Be Prepared!

    Hoppy... Did you go to Luke's, Research or Truman-west? They probably saved your life. Subclavians bleed out quickly! Very lucky it didn't get your lung as well.

    I am glad you are a survivor story! Horrible thing to live through!

    I'm glad you're alive to be part of this forum... your experiences will be helpful to many.

    I have to go places at night that are not in the best neighborhood. Why should I not defend myself? This Summer I will be working for my church in a crappy and increasingly bad neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Why not carry especially when I go to the church at night. I carry all the time so nobody can say I was carrying because I was looking for trouble.
