    CofC student needed a gun before attack in downtown Charleston

    "Senatore, a junior biology major at the school, was taking a break from homework and sitting on the front porch of her Elliotborough building when the man approached her and put a gun to her head, she said."

    Situational awareness seems to be more important than having a gun. IIRC the buildings have a front walk leading to a veranda. It's not like sitting on the stoop in B'more of Philly where someone walking past can just turn and cold-cock you.

    Many of the homes on Bogard St., where the assault/robbery occurred, have stoops and porches right on the street.

    Take a drive down Bogard St. and decide for yourself.
