What are people's thoughts on the subject of self-defense? For me it seems like a no-brainer. The police are neither omnipotent nor omnipresent - therefore it's likely that should you have need of one to defend you from a robbery - or WORSE - there won't be one close by. Therefore, I've taken steps to help ensure my own self protection and that of my loved ones. Mind you, I live out in "the sticks" where it would take a minimum of half an hour for one to respond. But I don't think it would be much different in the city. There are a lot more police out there - but also a lot more "things" they have to do, after all! Thoughts?
