Sarcasm off.
LOL!

Ms Feinstein would commend you for taking that approach.

One would think the average citizen in Kenya takes his/her firearms training a little more seriously than people in other countries. Aside of all the animals that see humans as the other white meat there is a lot of crime in Kenya. People that can afford it build huge brick/plaster fences around their homes. Guard dogs are very common. I am not talking about a hound picked up at the shelter or a rottweiler but dogs that are trained for military/police duty. I don't know how well the people are armed. Most African countries have restrictive gun laws. The gentleman in the article was not a common citizen, nor were the people that came to his aid. They all were the elite of Kenyan society. They believed the mall attack was personal and it would end up in their neighborhood if they didn't act quickly.

Those walled compounds are common all over the Third World. When I have been to Mexico I saw it all over the place. They set broken bottles along the top edges of the walls and sometimes concertina wire. Nice way to live.

All the cool old courtyards in the N.O. French Quarter had walls, many with the broken glass icing.
