Guns are not the answer

I must agree it is a sordid state of affairs that any young lady or man would have to experience the horror of street-idiot mental or physical violence. Putting a gun in your daughter’s/son’s hand is not the answer, for 9 times out of 10 the weapon is taken from the person who is trying to protect themselves and it is used against them. I would probably equip my daughter with a Kevlar vest and a camera to record this idiotic behaviour.
