Handgun Control Inc. advocates that firearms are not a good idea for self-defense.  They are more of a threat to family than criminals.

The NRA advocates responsible citizens get training and secure weapons from unwanted use.

I will start off by I do not disbeilve Handgun Control Inc statistic.  It is quite true.  But they also do not offer a better means of self-defense.

How do individuals in a civilized society protect themselves?  Is it collective?  Or is it individual?

Remembered one! the air taser (or something like that) Shoots out a pair of darts that eloctro-fye the target and over-rides the nervous system so you cannot do anything other that curl into a fetal position and breath. Works even if you're hyped up on drugs, ect.

EMD WEAPONS: EMD weapons use a more powerful 18 to 26 Watt electrical signal to completely override the central nervous system and directly control the skeletal muscles. This EMD effect causes an uncontrollable contraction of the muscle tissue, allowing the M-Series to physically debilitate a target regardless of pain tolerance or mental focus. The ADVANCED TASER® M-Series are EMD weapons -- specifically designed to stop even the most elite, aggressive, focused combatants. Rather than simply interfering with communication between the brain and muscles, the ADVANCED TASER® EMD systems directly tell the muscles what to do: contract until the target is in the fetal position on the ground.

Sure police use tasers.  Sure they work.

But his partner is right behind him with a loaded 12-guage shotgun.  Police don't ever go against felons with just a taser.

I'll use a taser when my parter can follow me around town with a 12-guage shotgun.

OK I'll start carrying a taser and a gun.

Hey! You just wanted an alternative, and I dug one up, not the best one, but at least the coolest looking!

The coolest looking, you bet.  Do they come in pink?  Not just the regular pink.  But really really hot glow in the dark pink.

That would really be cool.  Think of a felon laughing at you as you pull a pink taser.  Then drop him like a side of beef.

I got the best form of self-defense for you.  A body guard with a concealed hand gun.  Just like the one Rosie Odonell has.

"O'Donnell asked for and has received permission for an armed body guard to escort her son to and from school and to watch him while he's on school property. The body guard will only be armed off school grounds. O'Donnell says she's not being a hypocrite but actually living up to what she's been fighting for.

"I don't personally own a gun," O'Donnell says. "But if you are qualified, licensed and registered, I have no problem."

Especially when they are protecting your child I guess.

She may not be a hypocrite, but her thinking certainly betrays what she really believes. O'Donnell believes that the great unwashed masses should be stripped of their firearms, or regulated to the point where owning a firearm is more of a bother than simply being killed by a criminal, while the intellectual elite -- as much as O'Donnell represents that group -- arm themselves to protect their families from any threats." - By Steve Martinovich Enter Stage Right

hmmm. Gotta link? if not, oh well. As for the post, I though you wanted a "less than lethal" alternative to firearms. Personally, if someone around me is going to pack heat, I want it to be me, with or without bodygaurd. Just think of the extra firepower you could add to a gunfight if you could take down a baddie, take his gun, then find out who he's working for (when he can move again, that is)!!

Sure.  Rapist, murderer, whatever.  Let's zap him and throw him in jail so some softy pie judge can give him probation and let him go do it again when he's done with his buddies inside.  Why do you think criminals have rap sheets as long as toilet rolls?  

Nope.  If the jerk breaks in, blast him and end the problem.  Maybe if enough of them got buried the ones who were breathing might learn something.  Maybe.  I get tired of paying taxes so repeat offenders can sit in prison on vacation waiting to do it again.  To h* with them.   Save the world for those of us with enough guts to be decent human beings, work for a living and treat our fellows with respect.

Having no protection with you is the best protection you can have.
Trying to defend yourself with any form of weapon is the worst thing you can do because it means that the criminal would actualy be forced to use his weapon against you.

If you are realy interested to do something against a crime, remember details about the criminal, run away, and contact the police.

Well you do what you want to do. If your to much of a wimp to protect yourself then thats you problem but that is your decision and no one elses, thats freedom. Just the same as its my God given right to protect myself and no one is going to take that away from me while my heart is still beating. Just remember that no one is going to protect you for you. The cops are only there for the cleanup and they can't be everywhere at once. Nor would I want them everywhere at once, that's what is known as a police state. Some people just never want to accept that bad people are out there and no matter how many laws you pass or how many cops you have they're still gonna be out there. If you want freedom there is a trade, everyone else has freedom, and they might try to violate your rights. You just have to stand up for yourself, which many people are too afraid to do. Another thing, the ongoing trend I see in leftist Politics is that many people want to trade their freedoms and hand them over in the possesion of the government only to recieve a false sense of security that really does not protect them at all. Wow, what a deal!

God, you gun control activist are so full of yourselfs. You think you know whats best for everyone in this country and you try to push in beliefs with crappy ass statistics about accidental deaths related to guns. What a load of garbage! Just admit it, you don't think people are capable of having guns so you try to slowly pass legislation to get rid of them. Quite masking it with "Well, we gotta ban assault rifles" or "We gotta ban Saturday night Speacials". Could just one of you Anti-gunners give me an example of the last time someone used a REGISTERED assualt rifle to commit a crime. Not likely, since the few people that have them (legally) would probably get caught immedietely. A semi-automatic rifle is not an assualt rifle, never was. If you want to know the truth I could assault someone with any kind of rifle.  So, according to the assault weapons ban of 94' If a gun has two or more features it makes it an assault rifle. you mean to tell me like it's really gonna make a difference of someone has an SKS with a pistol grip and a bayonett. When is the last time someone got a bayonett to the gut? In fact, a person with a high-powered bolt action rifle is more dangerous than someone with an AK. It's just liberals telling people that scarry looking guns are more dangerous than non-scarry looking guns. The fact is that there is no real logic in deciding what guns to ban unless you want to ban all of them in the first place. I just don't get it. If anyone has any statistics that show me (besides background checks) that any gun ban has reduced crime please show me. I think evidence shows that it does not.

You are 50% more likely to survive an encounter with a violent criminal if you have a firearm than with any other method of self defense, including submisison or flight.

How's that?

What do you do if the criminal already intends to kill you? Too bad for you I guess.
