It's not a vast majority who haven't the strength to do what needs doing, just a majority, and they, to be fair, nine times out of ten, will get
killed or robbed no matter what they bought to the fight. Generally speaking it doesn't matter how old someone is, either they can fight one way or
another, or they die, plain and simple, and it doesn't matter how they are armed.
There was a little old lady, I think it was in London. She spotted some thieves smashing up the windows of a jewellers shop, tottered over to them,
and beat them up with her handbag, until they ran off. They had arrived on scooters, and had helmets on, and none the less she kept wailing on them.
They had bloody great sledge hammers with them. She had her purse. Its not what you have that counts, but what you do with it.
The reason that little old lady is alive is because those guys didn't want to kill or seriously hurt her. Some people who robs others will run at the
first sign of trouble others will kill anyone who gets in their way. You really think those guys where really that scared of some old lady with a
purse and left because her handbag was doing any damage? That old lady was seriously lucky those punks didn't go after her and hurt her, to be honest
she was an idiot for even attempting to go after them. You could list plenty of stories where someone fights off a attacker or robber with out a gun
but I could also list plenty of stories where someone did the same with a gun. To be honest the person getting hurt or not usually has a lot to do
with the attacker's psyche.
