captloadie said:As for the CCW, my argument against it is this: I don't have a concealed weapon and thug asks for my wallet, I give it to him and he goes away. I do have a concealed weapon and thug asks for my wallet, I pull my weapon, he pulls his, and one or both of us probably doesn't walk away.
You hope he goes away. If you want to be a victim that's up to you, but all that does is emboldens the perp to keep doing it time and time again. I know if I was allowed to CCW in Canada I would have no problem defending myself or my loved ones. The problem with Canadian society is that we are taught that its OK to be the victim and not fight back and the police will be to help us. In many places the police are overwhelmed and cannot be counted upon to act in a timely manner.
