One of the scariest things about the whip baton is how easy they are to use. A 6 yo could hurt me.
Requires closer range but: when a teenager offered to "kick my fucking head in" one day I took my keys out of my pocket, held them by the blade of the ignition key, placed that between the 2nd and 3rd fingers of my right hand then clenched my fist around the "handle" of the key and held it at the "ready" position. Then I took my nitrate spray out of my left pocket (he probably did not know what it was) and held that at his eye level, arm extended and stood there looking (but not feeling!) cold faced and confident and holding eye contact.

He changed his mind, despite having about 6 inches and 50+ years youth advantage over me.

Have you ever seen a Chihuahua take down a St. Bernard?

RE: Trump says: Take their guns away
Welcome to Canada. We don't have the Second Ammendment up here. Owning a gun up here requires a license. Open carry is non-existent for the general population. Our politicians still get armed security because lunatics happen. Suggesting otherwise is just plain stupid.

It's rare to even see a gun up here unless you're hunting or working in a field that requires them. Anybody carrying an AK-47 to do their shopping will find themselves the immediate attention of an RCMP special unit.

Just a little perspective for you.

The need for "self-defense" is a red herring.

Apples and oranges: Remove the suicides from those numbers.

Red herring: The comparison is invalid - compare the number with the number of crimes stopped, not criminals killed.

As pointed out above, the "self-defense" aspect is a fantasy.

I suggest you do some actual research. Drinking Beverage
