If you refuse to be a victim your chances of a good outcome are greater than if you just meekly submit to the boogerman.This is where we stand since the government dissarmed law abiding citizens. Crime has not dissapeared, in fact it has risen dramaticly. Guns or no guns, anything will do.

AFTER four robberies in seven years, David Butler-Fleming wasn't going to take it any more - not even from two axe-wielding bandits.
The Blue Mountains shopkeeper and his son Luke yesterday drove robbers from his Warrimoo General Store and Post Office as they tried to hold it up at 6am.
"[The first masked-wearing robber] was telling me to 'get on the floor' and I thought 'oh no, not again'," Mr Butler-Fleming said yesterday.
Mr Butler-Fleming yelled to his 21-year-old son and ran into the back office as the thief gave chase.
"Then I just went for him, I just ripped the tomahawk out of his hand and then Luke, who's an A-grade footy player, did this almighty crash tackle and brought all the shelving down."
Mr Butler-Fleming wrestled the axe free and chased the thief from the store, throwing it at him and hitting him, and scaring off the second bandit as well.
