Back in the day when you could tell the difference between a man or a woman without having to argue about it with your friends, and respect was learned by all at a young age, a man didn't have to run.I keep hearing about getting distance between yourself and a potential threat all the time. Run first, if you cant then shoot. Why should you have to run?
Why, indeed.Dont we have a right to occupy space ... And not have that right taken from us by an aggressor.
Why should you have to run?
I don't think any jurisdiction could legally require you to run; what if you were lame or in a wheel chair?Why should you have to run?
Check the laws in your state and make sure you understand them. Discuss "whats right" with the wankers in the politics section. Most states require that you make every effort to avoid confrontation and use of lethal force unless you are inside your home.Check the "Castle" and "Stand Your Ground" laws in various states, to see how they've gone about describing this "right" you speak of. That's about as good of an answer as you'll get, beyond what should be.
