We needed to waste 10 million dollars of taxpayer money to reveal what every normal, common-sense thinking American has known all his life?

In my own experience the attacker gets to call the cops, if he actually wants to, after he’s face down on the ground with my foot in the middle of his back. Giving an attacker a chance to mea culpa is not productive. Once he’s shown his hand and the threat is clear, he must be grounded and held-———Then he can bellyache to the cops about how “misunderstood” he is, after they cuff him.

Ok 4ft5in tall say 100 lbs woman is confronted by 6ft5in tall @ about 260 lbs man telling her what his pleasures are going to be while raping her. I don know about you but If that were me l defanitly would feel my life @ that moment is in danger. Law says if you feel your life or someone elses has been threatened you have the right to use what ever force necessary to stop an aggressor & or attacker.pull that pistol I say because once the freek see’s that he is dealing w/ a woman that is ready to shoot him he will stop & no one got hurt. She used a force nessary to get him to stop & didn’t pull the trigger.

I personally wouldn’t hesitate. But then I don’t try to get myself into those situations or go to parts of Seattle I know are not safe. At home I carry a Beretta Tomcat loaded with Hydra-shocks and Glaser safeties. When I go out I’m always carrying.

Carrying a gun called a Tomcat to guard against sexually aggressive males sounds ironic.

I’ve been hunting for this article, so thank you for posting it. The NewsMax link is dead.....Do you have any other sources? It seems to not be getting any coverage.

You can ignore my previous request. I found another link here:

The CDC told the truth about guns? Well, knock me over with a feather...
