Alright ChinChin, if you absolutely insist that invented and made up scenarios do not have any
secondaryholes:say the victimworks on a federal facility. the victimdrives to work with his/her trusty 9mm in his/her vehicle, which is great b/c victim iscovered along the drive to/from work, but the downside is victim hastopark in a parking lotoutside of the federal facility boundaries, and leave the gun behind in thecar and go to work unarmed. Assuming an attack could never occur on a federal facility, thevunerability exists as the victimwalks from his/hercar onto the federal facility. No, the victim can not getanother job.
and what do you know, since this is a made up story anyway,bad guy attacksthe victim as the victim iswalking to his/her car. The rest of the hypothetical situtation remains the same.
None of that modification/detail really matters for the question I was trying to bring up. In a perfect world, our gun stays with us 100% of the time. Its great if you can do 100%, but I'd have a hard time believing anyone who says they do.
In my mind, the question of what to do has been answered by the suggestion of conducting a citizens arrest on the bad guy (thank you Color!).
