Goes to show - not only the potential for things happening but - just about any darned thing can be a weapon ...... plenty of things other than guns, and lethal too.
Carry is essential - well I think so. No point folks burying heads in the sand these days.

- JanqMan Attacked With Screwdriver In Car Jacking Attempt
updated 5:53 p.m. ET, Tues., Dec. 4, 2007
DETROIT - A Detroit man was stabbed several times in the head with a screwdriver by a would-be carjacker, police said. Police said Frank Fitzgerald received 15 stitches and gashes on his head while trying to fight off carjackers who were trying to steal his minivan from his driveway.
The attack happened on the driveway of Fitzgerald's Detroit home of 15 years, on the 8200 block of Patton Street.
Fitzgerald said he came out of his house when he heard his car start in the driveway.
"He was taller than me, so he had a direct line to my head. He stabbed down on my head a few times with the screwdriver and then we fell onto the ground," Fitzgerald told Local 4 News.
Fitzgerald's five young children and wife were watching the attack from inside the home, said Fitzgerald.
"My son thought that somebody hurt me very bad. He was very upset and very shaken," said Fitzgerald.
That's when his wife, Vickie, decided to take action. She grabbed a baseball bat from the closet and went outside.
"My husband was bleeding really badly at that point and he was trying really bad to fight," said Vickie. "The guy was stabbing him on top of the head at that point, so I went out with a baseball bat and tried to fight them."
Eventually both men ran off without the minivan.
Fitzgerald told Local 4 he is tired of feeling threatened in his own home. Many of his neighbors have had their cars stolen.
"It makes me very angry, to take something that you don't own, that you didn't work for," said Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald said he did not get a good description of the carjackers.
