These people were trapped in a metal box with a crazy person with a knife.
There is no way to flee a moving train.
Yes, in the end they mustered enough courage to take this guy down, but going hand to hand with a guy with a knife is dangerous.
Situational awareness and concealed carry are key.
Oregon is a shall issue state, and as far as I can tell from the internet, it’s legal to carry on public transportation (correct me in the comments if I’m wrong).
Carry and be prepared to defend yourself.
We also need effective government to enforce Bruen in other states.
You can’t flee when you’re locked in a moving box. People need the ability to defend themselves.
