Whatever the details we don't know anything about, I'm glad the victim managed to turn the tables. The assailants were probably taken by surprise, not expecting the victim to fight back. But it also goes to show a blade can be a devastating weapon of last resort. As much physical as psychological. The victim probably couldn't have fought back effectively just with his bare hands (unless he had a lot of training, but then again if he did, he probably wouldn't have been caught off-guard and sucker punched).

The victim was unprepared for the confrontation, and survived due to the ineptitude of his assailants. He was in condtion white, and probably should've died.

Foolish. Hard to argue the points of law when you are dead. You might have been right with the law, but what good would it do you? Not political, but practical.

If you decide to carry, make it a revolver. You won't waste precious time looking for your brass.

I often wonder what the reaction look like to seeing a great cloud of smoke from a Brown Bess...

That's ironc.

Batons are illegal to carry in California (not sure about rest of USA) but we can carry handguns.

And in Canada you can't have handguns at all but you can have a baton?

We might be allowed batons, but we are not allowed to hit anybody with them unless we send them a written apology in triplicate 3 months ahead of time.

Gee, it's so reassuring to hear how well gun control is working in other countries yet again.

What about knives in Canada? Surely they haven't outlawed knife carry there yet, have they?
