    Patrick Henry Mall closed early 12/27 due to fighting

    http://www.wvec.com/my-city/nnews/Pa...184993981.html

    NEWPORT NEWS-- Patrick Henry Mall on Jefferson Avenue in Newport News was to open as scheduled Friday morning after closing early Thursday because of fights. Police spokesperson Lou Thurston said mall security called around 7:10 p.m. and said a large number of young people were fighting in the food court area.

    .... Good thing they ban firearms so that no shopper can defend themselves ....

    Since Dick's went anti-2A, I have no reason to patronize Pat Henry Mall....those crickets chirping are my hard earned dollars being spent elsewhere!

    I give them as little money as possible. I do go to stores (OC-ing) and enter/exit through the store specific entrances rather than the mall entrances. I like Chipotle so I do the same with their entrance.

    Given the chance I will pay the extra .01 tax at Peninsula Town Center and OC everywhere.

    At least this fight will convince my daughter (more) to keep her knife with her at all times. She humors me more than takes it because she thinks she will need it. :-)

    Having a knife is good - for some situations. Not so good for most, though.

    Buy her some decent OC spray. Just keep in mind that the Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) number is not the only indicator of a good spray: 2 Million SHU @ 10% is much more effective than 10 Million SHU at 1%.

    stay safe.

    Thanks, I just ordered some keychain Fox pepper sprays for the family. :-)

    The nice thing about the knife is that it is slim and fits in her back pocket. Now that my oldest is driving now a keychain attachment will be nice.

    Unfortuately both knife and pepper spray are banned in schools so she will have to "disarm" when headed that way.

    ETA: My thinking was that the knife would be good for close quarters if she got shoved into or attacked in a dressing room like the woman in Norther Virginia. If she had time (and distance) to deploy the knife before an attack, it would add some deterrant affect reducing the probability that the attacker would continue.
