When you don't think to arm yourself...

Last week, my Sig. Other went to grab some food for us, as it was late and we had both been in meetings.

Coming back out, he was attacked by a bunch of kids in a gang initiation.  He didn't have any way of protecting himself, nor did anyone jump in and help him in any way possible.  Why he was picked, your guess is as good as mine.  The Cop who took the report won't do anything nor will go out and look for the kids who did it. 

As of right now my Sig Other is fine... physically.  Mentally is another story.  PTSD is not good as a veteran to begin with, but imagine having that and being jumped by a bunch of snotty kids.  He lost it and I unfortunately was up most of the night trying to make him calm and didn't do a great job even though I did keep him home and made him chill out. 

Now, would this have been as bad if someone at least stepped in?  I would say no.  But why are people sitting on the sidelines watching this?  Is it the fact that people are to afraid to become involved?  It is the repercusion of events and they are afraid they will be next?  Is it the fact that they are just afraid in general and wish everything is a utopian ideal?  Either way... no one helped. 

When they say an armed society is a polite society.  I think it is true, to a point.  When no one helps a fellow American from being attacked, guns can make or break a deal.  There was a law inacted by our Legislature, which a few would know called the Castle Law.  But is does not speak of protecting ones self on another property when threatened.  There is a new ammendment to the bill coming out soon concerning this and will make it easier to defend ones self, no matter where you are. 

I will be conceal carrying from now on due to the lack of police response (even if my property taxes do PYA their salary) and the fact that I am not going to be one to be assaulted by any means.

If you were in his situation, with no weapons and no way to defend yourself, how would you deal with it?

I never go anywhere unarmed. It's not always convenient, but being attacked while helpless is a whole bunch LESS convenient.

The Supreme Court has twice ruled that the police are under no obligation to protect you, whatsoever.

Protect yourself. The choice is yours, and I for one am glad you're packin'.

This is a wake-up call to all of us. This can happen to everyone, anytime and anywhere. Hawaii gun laws suck BIG time and we cannot carry wherever we go, we can but it's more like to and from a class or shooting range and then the ammo needs to be in a seperate casing as well as the gun. But when I think about it in a SHTF scenario all of these restrictions will more than likely be not in place no longer.

Oh my, I hope your man's okay! What an experience! It is so sad that more folks don't act to help folks in trouble. But, it's true that most people think of themselves and their safety first. Forget about helping somebody else. Unfortunately, that's the mindset of so many folks today.

You're lucky that you can carry. Here in IL (and WI) we do not have that right. It's constantly being fought and hopefully someday it'll be overturned. Although, hubby and I are looking into getting certified to do it through another state. Have a few friends that have done it that way. I agree with you that an armed society is a polite society. Take care, Upinak
