I was wrong.
I have been convinced that in the event of an attack (unsure of how likely or unlikely this is, but am willing to admit it happens TOO DAMN OFTEN) a woman is probably better off defending herself with a pointy object (read weapon).
Guns are bad, but luckily not readily available anyway.
Sorry if I caused offence, I really didn't mean to.

Thankyou to helen_katerina for a reasoned argument in favour of weaponry.

Here's hoping that our politicians one day take real steps towards dealing with the problem of violence toward women.

Nobody is promoting gun use. My car antenna i'sn't likely kill anyone, even me. Just one stunning blow to the head while I make a dash for the door.

I didn't say anybody was, I was just pointing out that although weapons my be good to have handy, guns are not.
I just wouldn't want to be misconstrued.
Guns are bad mmkay.

'Guns are bad mmkay'

See, I knew there'd be something we'd agree on :P
