The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger, and a single guy on equal
footing with a carload of drunken guys with
baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
God created everyone equal, Sam colt made everyone equal
