I carry a gun. I’ve often felt that it would give me an advantage if someone tried to carjack me. I still don’t take too many chances, but I’m more likely to assist people when I know I have something to even the odds. Not so in other countries.
The cops recovered the stolen car with a gun inside it, but the suspect got away. No doubt he is seriously reconsidering his lifestyle. He’ll most likely be reconsidering the shotgun and getting a handgun next time. It’s not like he’ll have difficulty, and a handgun is easier to carry when making your escape.
Oh, you thought I meant he’d reconsider his life of crime? Why? There’s no significant downside to it. It’s not like his victims could shoot back.
