Threat management tools.

Among people I know who’ve had to defend themselves, PTSD is a great deal less prevalent in those who were successful. A person who is injured in a self-defense situation would have nightmares about it, while a person who succeeded in avoiding injury is not. The correlation is not perfect but very strong.

Guns are emergency management tools.

Guns are emergency management tools.

As with medical supplies or firefighting equipment, the training and the experience of the user is extremely important. But a physician without his tools is unlikely to be effective tending to a health emergency, same as a defender without her tools would be hard-pressed to manage a social emergency. In the end, the difference may be life and death (or a permanent disability), depending on the availability of both knowledge and equipment.

    I hope the dolt that broke her nose was stopped DRT!

  2. I am given to understand that people who fought back, even if they ultimately failed to completely defend themselves (were still robbed, injured, or raped), have less incidence of PTSD than people who “submitted.”

    Am I the only one who looked at that, and tried to figure out what gun she’s holding.

    (Given that it’s tagged “Boberg” and is very short, that’d be my guess. ETA for release on that?)

    Having had a broken nose about a half dozen times, I’m guessing this is just a pose. No actual noses were harmed in the making of this poster.

    Every time I had my nose broken, I had two shiners, secondary bruises and it hurt to smile.

    Nope, the nose was broke, I know that for a fact.
