I was privileged to view a movie called
"Defending Yourself Against Edged Weapons".
So what I've done at this point in my life is
sold all my guns and gotten proficient with knives.
I've been both shot and cut in my life, and shot
is definitely preferable, though fatally shot or cut is all the same to me.
Dying in a hail of bullets appeals to the patriot
in me, though I'm more likely to go in a massive coronary.
So to reiterate, I'm a jeweler and I work out of my house, and I own NO guns.
Come and try to get my gold. I dare you.
Most people, even thugs, (except police) won't
shoot if they think they don't have to.
That's their weak point.
