Situational awareness is the most important aspect of self defense. Full stop.

"I'm aware that that nigger is charging me with an axe. I sure wish I had a gun."

[–] Artooweaboo 1 points 1 points (+2|-1) ago 

Hence the situational awareness not to get close enough to him (21 feet sounds like a lot but things happen fast), nevermind that you can see that it is carrying an axe from a fucking mile away. You can also run away. Lots of people talk big but being fit enough to just run is sure easier than the time, money, and hearing cost of shooting said nigger. Even if you are concealed carrying. It is like you are being obtuse on purpose.

Either murdered here or by in prison after getting raped by niggers.

I disagree. I think preparedness is slightly more important.

[–] Sosacms 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

I disagree. Living completely unarmed in a safe white community is safer than being armed/trained in a crime ridden city. Never run the risk of getting mugged in a back alley if you never go into a back alley.

If you are unprepared but aware of your situation, I argue that you are more likely to have a 'better' outcome. On the other hand if you are prepared but oblivious I think the outcome is less likely to be 'better'. But I can see the value of being prepared by living in a good area, learning how to have situational awareness, etc.

Of course you need to be prepared, but an alert person with a .22 is more safe than a person with an AR15 pissing around on his phone. At least in my humble opinion.

[–] kevf4 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

They are one and the same. If someone gets the drop on you, then you weren't prepared for it. What specific part of being prepared are you taking about?

[–] ThisIsntMe123 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Right. One of Batman's parents may be alive, if they're a quick draw. Uncle Ben maybe.

[–] dooob 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago 

If Batmans parents werent idiots and hired bodyguards they wouldv lived. After all, Gotham is a crime riddled city, no reason why a wealthy person wouldnt hire protection.

[–] Sosacms 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Ultimate liberal cucks. Even Batman was more interested in moral grandstanding than actually fixing the problem.... Wasn't even very effective at treating the symptoms.

[–] TheDante 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago 

Probably not, because both the murderer of Batman's parents and the murderer of Uncle Ben had the drop on their victims, they didn't really have an opportunity to pull out a gun.

[–] Sosacms 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Kind of. Multiple versions, but generally they were liberal cucks who wanted to help and reason with the poor criminal.

[–] TheDante 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

Thomas Wayne definitely was one of the bleeding heart kind, not so sure about Uncle Ben though.

Then it would have been even worse for them if they were open carrying. “HEY THROW YOUR WEAPON ON THE GROUND AND SUCK MY DICK!”

[–] RoundWheel 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Having a weapon on your person doesn't make you invulnerable. Having a gun simply means you may have a chance to save yourself and others. There are not guarantees. But that possibility of a chance is better than the doom of no chance at all.

[–] ruck_feddit 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Your level of vulnerability greatly decreases when you can stop looking at your phone and pay attention to your surroundings.

[–] Tb0n3 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

It's much more helpful in a group situation unless you're Billy the fucking Kid.

[–] P8rtsUnkn0wn 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Neither would've been carrying, even if they could. They believed that people, on the whole, were good, decent and worthy of trust. In the end, it's what got them killed.

[–] GOMAD_OR_GFYAD 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Only if the prospect of holding up someone who was packing discouraged the criminal from attempting to mug them in the first place. If he was carrying when they got mugged he never would have been able to draw because the mugger already had a gun on them.

[–] Opieswife 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

It is possible that Bruce Wayne’s parents might but there would be no Batman if they lived.

[–] superq7 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Naa, Joker killed Bruce Wayne's parents after falling through a time warp. He realized that he needs to kill to save the universe. The joker is Batman.


[–] Sosacms 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Best version is when Bruce died instead of the parents. Lead pilled the Dad into a pro-gun killing machine and really broke the Mom into an even better Joker.

[–] Karbuster 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I remember that, creepy shit.

Didn't they do that in the animated flashpoint paradox?

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

You're assuming that it wasn't allowed.

[–] clamhurt_legbeard 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Back in 30s America, it wasn't.

[–] TheBuddha 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Are you sure? Are you also sure that it wasn't lawful in Gotham or wherever it is that Spidey lives?

CC carry is currently lawful and people are murdered and mugged all the time. The number of defensive uses for firearms is very large.


I fully support the right to conceal carry - and my State doesn't even require that you get a permit. I do have my CWP but I don't need to have it in my State. I'm unsure if I'll let it lapse as I seldom carry concealed. There's no crime here.

Anyways, I speak of the statistical probability of it having affected the outcome - and it seems unlikely. People can conceal carry now, and crimes of violence still happen. In the old time Wild West, crimes still happened - and many of them carried openly. (It wasn't anything like the movies, however.) Statistically, and logically, it seems unlikely to have changed the outcome.
