    New Self-Defense Weapon

    This happened elsewhere in my county:

    Daily Freeman - Woman wielding Big Wheel breaks up fight after shotgun blast proves ineffective

    KINGSTON - A shotgun blast couldn't stop two men from fighting on a city porch Friday morning.

    But a plastic Big Wheel did the trick.

    Detrell Pittman, 28, of 209 Foxhall Ave., Kingston, and Jonathan Stevens, 34, of 143 Colonial Place, Kingston, wound up being charged with criminal trespass, a misdemeanor, and disorderly conduct, a violation, after the predawn incident, according to Detective Lt. Timothy Matthews of the city police department.

    Matthews said the two men got into a fight about 3:25 a.m. near 202 Foxhall Ave. and that the scuffle ultimately moved to the porch of the residence.

    Matthews said a resident of the home, thinking the two men were trying to break in, came outside carrying a shotgun. And when the man incorrectly thought one of the combatants had a knife and was about to use it, he fired a shotgun blast into the air in an attempt to scare the men, Matthews said.

    But the two kept fighting.

    Moments later, Matthews said, a woman showed up at the scene and whacked the two men with a plastic Big Wheel riding toy, and the fight stopped.

    Police arrived a short time later and took Pittman and Stevens into custody.

    The man with the shotgun and the woman with the Big Wheel were not charged, and police did not release their names.

    Didn't know they still made big wheels. When my oldest son (37 now) was young (about 5 or 6) they were the big rage for kids. Every kid in the neighborhood had one and they would spend most of the day racing on them. Of course that was in the days when kids went outside and played instead of being glued to a vidoe game machine.

    Did she have a permit for that Big Wheel? Not sure I'd want to live in a country where just anyone can walk around in public with a Big Wheel......I think I'll write my legislator.

    Wow... I too remember when all the little kids had bigwheels. They would cruise around the neighborhood together,several of them and it wasnt unusual to see a dozen or so parked in someones front yard.

    Back then, there were no fat kids.

    Not sure if you can get a CCW for that. It would be kind of hard to conceal !

    OK, Here's The Holster!

    This should work just fine for CCBW (Carry Concealed Big Wheel)

    I rode my big wheel so much that the plastic tires had holes in them. The brake was really cool.

    I knew a kid that spun out so much that he wore a flat spot on his front tire.

    You could hear him coming from a ways off...
