Are we tired of listening to this (sometimes) well intended but useless piece of dangerous advice given to victims of domestic violence?
This news item from WSVN shows Ernest Burch, accused of not only domestic violence but of violating the previously placed restraining order against him, resisting with enough strength that takes three no-quite-small men to subdue. Now imagine a regular-sized woman trying to deal with such a mammoth unleashed. It us not only silly but suicidal.
If you are an abused woman, by all means use all the legal remedies offered to you and those include the right to defend yourself with whatever tool will be the most effective to attack your legally restrained abuser: A gun.
And no, it will not guarantee you 100% effectiveness, but it does beat harsh language and supplications to spare your life.
