“I didn’t want a gun. I specifically didn’t want one,” Dittrich said. “I was very much opposed to hav[ing] one, and I guess I got the realization that the police really can’t protect you. They can respond, and they can protect you once they get there. But, you’re on your own.”
I honestly don’t see how having a gun in a situation where both of your assailants already have a gun pointed at you would help anything.
With a 30 second internet search, you can find literally thousands of examples of armed citizens defeating attackers with guns.
Is it possible they’ll leave you alone if you peacefully submit? Sure.
Is it also possible that even if you submit, they’ll rape your wife, sister or daughter, and kill you all anyway? Yes.
I’m not going to leave these possibilities in the hands of some criminal scum. I’m going to fight to the last breath in my body.
Just because some people are cowards doesn’t mean that we all should be as well.
