Which is why I also carry a folder, just a little 3" blade, but it's a whole lot better than nothin'. But I actively try to avoid getting into situations where that knife, or my concealed, might be necessary. That sort of stuff is hard on my aching knees...

You stabbed him and restrained him?
Not always true, I stabbed a burglar through the shoulder area with a kitchen knife when I was 17.

What is the answer? Simple
Deport every single Muslim from every single Western country. And I mean ALL of them.
Allow none back for any reason whatsoever - until Islam has reformed itself.
Logistic nightmare but cheaper in the long run than the constant ramping up of security and endless military action.
It won't happen obviously. So the terror and death will continue.

Exactly. The media fearmongers and makes people think that having armed citizens results in a wild west mentality and innocent bystanders being shot. This is in fact false, and I challenge anyone to find enough instances of this happening to demonstrate a trend. Meanwhile, armed US citizens stopping crimes is much more common than the media reports And before anyone cries about the source, yes it is a real study, and it was really commissioned by the CDC. Just because you don't like the article doesn't mean the study wasn't legit.
That report itself is flawed and says that more research is needed, on a number of levels. It says in the actual study that there's dispute on the actual number of defensive uses of guns. But gun nuts just read the headline and don't bother to actually read the study.
Not to mention, it's all estimates of something that is loosely defined. Defensive gun use numbers are sketchy, at best. The CDC report acknowledges that “definitional differences” have something to do with the wide variations in DGU estimates that are found by different research groups.
So the study is not as black and white and clear cut as you make it seem.
One of the terror suspects killed by police during the London attacks was reportedly thrown out of his mosque after he interrupted a sermon to say that voting in the general election was “un-Islamic”.
The suspect, who has not yet been publicly named but whose identity neighbours believe they know after his East London flat was raided, is understood to have been attending the Jabir Bin Zayd mosque in Barking.
The manager of the mosque, who did not want to give his name, reportedly told the Mail Online the suspect aggressively halted the iman as he advised the community to vote.
“He started saying that voting was un-Islamic and we shouldn’t do it," the manager said.
“He got very angry. I called him aside and said, please calm down. He refused, so I removed him. Thank God he followed me.
“When we got outside the room, he said you don’t have any authority over me, only God has authority because this is a house of God. I said that might be true, but I am in charge.”
“He had no special friends here. He would arrive, pray and then leave. He said hello to people but generally kept himself to himself,” the manager added.
“He seemed an uneducated person. He seemed to have no knowledge of religion.”
He added that following the outburst, the suspect was banned from the mosque and had not been seen there since.

The problem is the Sunni sect of islam seeing everyone infidels...
They follow the way of Ummayyad
Iran is the leading state-sponsor of terror in the world. Iran is Shia.
