This is a follow up of my post just a couple days ago about wanting to purchase a pistol, open carry or conceal it while riding.
This is an event that happened last night literally 10 minutes from my house, I go here frequently and usually ride at night around this time because my job fucks with my sleep schedule I usually sleep during the day when I'm off and awake at night. my fz6r is my main source of transportation so let me put this into perspective for anyone from another country or that lived in the U.S and was appalled that I want to carry a gun for my protection aswell as anyone near my vicinity.
Say I'm in Walmart and a guy behinds me sees me open my wallet with cash in it and follows me out the store late at night, proceeds to take the knife out from behind me prevents me from starting and leaving on my bike by pushing me off of it while I'm scrambling to get my helmet and gloves on as he sprints to me knocking it over, now I'm in hand to knife combat with an unknown individual under unknown substances if any are present.
I'm 5' 10" weighing in at 145lbs how do I protect myself against a 260lb guy? Sure I know I have hands I use to box and took a Brazilian Jiu jitsu before I got out of high school but one mistake on my part I lose my life.
This is a wake up call to every American in this group hold onto your 2nd amendment rights, do not give it up and I strongly urge you to carry as well!
