self defence?

my older Brother was stabbed for his mobile phone recently

a work colleague was Sexually attacked in her local park while walking Her Dog, this was over a Year ago and She is still waiting for the Cops to take Her Statement!

I was wondering as it is clearly not safe to go outside nowadays, what form of weapon should I carry?

a Gun, knife or what?

If you *MUST* carry something to feel better, make it something thats not actually a weapon.

Not the best example but a mini maglite. Its not a weapon but its significantly harder than your hand.

Don't use it unless you are going to commit 100% because if you start waving something about with no more intent then you can prompt the other person to do likewise - and they may well use whatever they have.

Then don't stick around once you've used it.

I thought it was you that had his mobile stolen?

Is your family really unlucky, or are you just full of excrement?

Stop worrying about being mugged, just shoot yourself and get it over with.

Good quality, heavyweight pen.

Have'nt you seen The Bourne Identity? Or Casino?

Does almost as much damage as a knife, but completely legal to carry.

Indeed it does. Apparently an ordinary biro can skewer both cheeks and the tongue, if driven with force and accuracy (so I'm told) :D

Also, a folded newspaper can be very effective (google 'millwall brick')

Two 'legal' weapons you should never leave home without :threaten: :D

Just buy some "legal" pepper spray. I'll leave you to trawl ebay for it. :wink:
Alternatively, a squirty bottle of Mr Muscle. Make sure the safety's off though. Worn in a thigh holster for greater effect and mong bafflement.

How about going to the gym and putting on some muscle, then if someone is going to attack you you can flick them away like a flea!

Or play rugby and see what lessons you can apply off the pitch!

This will stop you complaining when you get nicked for offensive weapons offences or being stabbed/shot with your own weapon.

Anyway how does 2 incidents, nothing to do with you, to two random people, constitute "clearly not safe to go outside nowadays"

I can only assume that you tossed the knife having stabbed your brother, hence your need for a new weapon. Try using the mobile phone a la Blair Peach on the radio!

As long as what you carry is legal, all you have to remember is to ensure that your response is proportional to the agression shown by your attacker. Or you could move out of the vomit-stained, pox-ridden pikey estate you appear to live in.

A waterpistol filled with Tabasco Sauce. Aim for the face.

Whatever you use, remember the law will be on the side of the scumbag who attacked you. So treat the law with the contempt itdeserves. Be prepared to lie under oath, distroy evidence, threaten witnessess etc.

Welcome to Blair's Britain; the only way to get justice is to break the law.

A mobile phone can make a great weapon. The old ones with the aerial that stuck out about an inch was great. Thrust that with force into any part of the body and it's gonna hurt.

Also, bringing the mobile phone down hard onto the bridge of the nose is gonna smart a bit....so I'm told.

Mobile phone makes a good knuckle duster. Kubota is a legal martial arts weapon, it's a little stick that you put your keys on. Google it if you want a picture.

I use my Swiss Army knife but as a knuckle duster, that way tou won't get done for using a blade.

Like most of these things speed and aggression are far more valuable than any physical weapon.

I meant kubotan. Of course you could always take on your assailant with a tracked excavator....
