I agree with much of what is said in this article, however, there are two things that were said I want to add my two cents on.
1. All individuals are capable of employing tools in self defense, it is mindset that matters. Only when you realize that you are the only one you can rely on does this become apparent by necessity.
2. I am not a fan of laws against the use of tools in self defense, as most know I am not a fan of laws period. I believe that the only principle* that matters is the non aggression principle. I define it on this blog numerous times but here goes again. That which is voluntarily agreed upon by the individuals involved is always right, that which is forced or coerced is always wrong.
Enjoy this article, I did.
