"Are you a god or something? Able to change reality to suit? You think you can negotiate with someone who breaks in and starts raping your partner (or old people in the UK)? How do you do that again?"
If someone breaks into my home, I will hit them with a stick, in the certain knowledge that they will not be carrying a firearm, because tight gun control ensures they won't have one.
"When someone decides they dont like the look of you so out come the knife or whatever (maybe even a gun) your gonna negotiate somehow?"
Yes: I'm going to GIVE THEM MY WALLET. What kind of fucking idiot pulls a gun on someone for the sake of a wallet??! Are you really so attached to $50 that you would KILL someone over it. If so, then the only difference between you and a murderer is that you are only happy to kill if it's legal. Morally speaking you are as every bit as violent as someone on the other side of the law, and you shouldn't be allowed to carry a firearm in public, because you are clearly psychotic.
If this is such a big threat and as much of a certain-to-happen situation as you claim. then I can't see how you've reached an adult age without being attacked or had a street confrontation without resorting to shooting them. How did pulling a firearm go for you?
Because if it has never happened to you, you're essentially discussing a myth and yet telling me that it's bound to happen. Your scenario is a false one.
I hate to shatter your reality, but the job of a mugger isn't to kill people and then be ruthlessly hunted down for manslaughter. It is to obtain your money for the minimum amount of fuss, and then to go and spend it and have fun. Muggers don't stab/shoot/kill people who hand over what they want and don't try to get clever. Did your 'self defence' training fail to mention that point in it's eagerness to teach you how to kill people legally?
"Wow I think you should run courses for the many victims who had to suffer and die because you obviously know something others dont."
I probably should. Maybe I could undo some of the damage taught to people who spend ages learning how to kill mugger on a 25m range by teaching them to spend the money on a alarm system and learning how to avoid trouble in the first place instead of blindly walking into it with the stupid over-confidence that a firearm brings.
I've been in plenty of trouble in my time, had lots of scuffles, and managed to avoid much, much more. I've wandered around some very shitty places and had a lot of potentially dangerous encounters. Yet never once have I needed to pull a gun on a criminal and never once have I been in a situation outside of work where I believe I'd have been safer with a firearm concealed on my person. So before you try to lecture me about situations, just how many times have you pulled guns on muggers because it was the only 'safe' and available course of action?
"You might think like a drooling rambo inspired idiot but you may not feel anything if put in such a situation you cant talk your way out of."
That sentence makes no sense. At all.
"Your false economy is false logic. Maybe someones more likely to get shot but your less likely to be the one harmed, but more likely to have a chance of self defence."
No it's not.
And isn't it something like 20% of US police who are shot are shot with their own firearm.
Tell me how I can safely pull a firearm (while drunk) on an armed attacker who is in physical contact with me, at night, and safely use it without there being at least a one-in-four chance of getting shot by his gun or mine?
Statistically, I would be better off NOT having a firearm and resisting, because at least that way the attacker will not see me as a lethal threat so will be more inclined to hit me with the firearm than use it.
"In your scenario you must assume the criminal is armed. Because they are criminal and prepare for the upper hand."
Yeah: with a knife, because muggers in countries where there is decent gun control don't tend to have access to guns.
"You are gonna be violently attacked (no negotiation)."
That's a stupid scenario in the first place.
Why? To rob me? Muggers DON'T DO THAT. So it's a personal attack, because I looked at them funny in a club or something? Then why am I walking home somewhere quiet enough that someone can pull a blade without someone saying something? Why didn't I just RUN THE FUCK AWAY? Self-defence starts a long while before someone pulls a weapon.
"Would you like the chance to defend yourself or is your life not worth it?"
I'll defend my life by not being stupid enough to be in such a fucking stupid situation.
I'll defend my life by having the awareness to see a situation developing or the potential for one and avoiding it.
I will defend myself for not being isolated on the streets and attracting attention of others and by not walking alone.
I will defend myself by running the fuck away rather than MURDERING someone in 'self defence'.
I will defend myself by handing over my wallet if someone points a knife at my neck.
I will defend myself by not being a stupid, mouthy dick who provokes an attacker.
I will defend myself by not seeming like a lethal threat to the attacker, so they retaliate in kind.
I will defend myself by physical force against a foe who is already in arms reach, instead of being stupid enough that I can outdraw someone from a concealed holster in the time it takes them to shoot me in the face. It'd take less time to break their elbow than to get a firearm out of a holster anyway.
If I have to try to use a firearm in the above situation, I am an idiot and have failed at 'self defence'.
"Talk about the real situation this applies)."
There really isn't statistically a situation where this is particularly likely to apply. It's a situation that gun-nuts make up in justification to carry a firearm in public. And if I am in a situation where I'm likely to be mugged, then it means that I'm walking home late, drunk, on my own... and I strongly believe that anyone carrying a firearm while drunk should be arrested anyway, regardless of if they have a licence, because it's a retarded thing to do.
The whole idea of carrying a concealed firearm for street defence is breathtakingly stupid.
