Still Learning says: However, where would we draw the line? How would we fight back to preserve our freedoms? I personally am stocked up on guns and ammo, but I don't know how I would use them other than to protect my own home. Will we eventually organize and fight to save ourselves? ... Any thoughts?
So, let's use that to start a thread on alternative defensive measures, for at home, in the car, and outside.
Great thoughts. I think I'd rather carry a non-lethal weapon, because I would have few qualms about using it, I wouldn't worry about aiming much, and the legal backlash would be much better. (Does blood make YOU a little queasy?)
What if you can't tell if someone is REALLY going to do something/ attack you, but it's more likely than not?
What can you do to your home? car?
Other options than gun/ knife:
--25-ft. streaming pepper spray
--paintball guns, etc.
--rock salt shotgun shells?
--lasers--the ones that get extremely hot in 1-3 seconds(?)
--anything like stun grenades?
--blowdart gun on stun?
Most of the crap they sell at "120 decibels!!" wake me up less than my alarm clock...
--they used to have skunk pills, I can't find them anymore!
