Good for you, Jay! It just goes to show you that you should always have backup if you can get it. There is no substitute for another person who will step up, armed or no, to defend you.
Edmund Burke: “The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.”
– 1784 speech. Taken from Founding Fathers Notes
"In a State of Nature, it is true, that a Man of superior Force may beat or rob me; but then it is true, that I am at full Liberty to defend myself, or make Reprisal by Surprize or by Cunning, or by any other way in which I may be superior to him. But in Political Society ... if I attempt to avenge myself, the whole Force of that Society is ready to complete my Ruin."
-Edmund Burke, A Vindication of Natural Society (1757)
