This is JMO. The days of being violently confronted being a rare thing are quickly coming to a close and calling 911 being more useless than before. The days of pocket pee shooters being anything close to being sufficient to protect one's self are too as the possibility of being assaulted by 5 or more simply because of the way you look ramps up. People have always been dependent on themselves for their protection though many didnt realize it. Kidding themselves into thinking 911 would get them assistance in time to be relevant. The police are on the run these days and that isnt likely to change. That's why even anti gun libs are buying their first weapons because they finally realize they have to protect themdmselves. Jmo But a lot of casual pocket rocket carriers will soon be upgrading their protective weaponry as well.
