Would You Put Your Safety in the Hands of a Criminal?

Self Defense

In a world where the crime rate is as high as it is, gun training, as well as other forms of self defense training is crucial. In a letter to the editor from Daily Camera, a woman named Kristin Stordahl seemingly disagrees with the purpose of our Second Amendment Rights, calling America “gun-crazy.”  She says, “When a criminal points a gun at you and then you point a gun at him, what do you think will happen? Someone will get shot, most likely you. When a criminal pulls a gun on you and you DON’T have a gun, what do you think will happen? Probably nobody will get shot. The statistics are well documented. What is going on in our gun-crazy country?”

The Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America guarantees us, as Americans, the right to have and use firearms for the protection of ourselves and of our country.  Basically what Stordahl states in her letter is that we are better off leaving our fates in the hands of an armed criminal. America, I ask you to think about what is going on in an armed criminal’s mind when he or she pulls out a gun and aims it at your face. Is it, “Well, this woman is defenseless against me, therefore I will not shoot / rob / or rape her”? Or is the criminal thinking, “Ah! This man I just pointed my gun at is not pulling a gun on me! I will leave him be now.”  Stordahl paints the picture of two things. One: the criminal is, in fact, thinking along these lines. Or two: someone else will come to the rescue. Why would you count on the conscience of a criminal to save you? More importantly, why would you put your safety in the hands of someone else?

Dean Acheson, Harry Truman's Secretary of State, said, "No people in history have ever survived, who thought they could protect their freedom by making themselves inoffensive to their enemies."  Self defense training is the best way to protect yourself against an attacker. You must be able to protect yourself because you can not guarantee that some other person is going to come and save you. What if no one ever comes? What if the person that comes is inadequate and becomes a victim himself?
