Description:
I am currently applying for a concealed weapons permit and am taking kick boxing classes. A cashier at a store right up the street from me was raped and murdered behind the store.... and we live in a usually quiet town. This is serious women... we need to protect ourselves.

    That is scary! Someone tried to break into my house (before I got the gun)... about 4 months ago. Thank god my dog was here! The baby and I were home alone around 9 at night. 3 days later the police found a sheet tied up like a hammok, ciggarette butts, and a knife on the edge of the woods by my house!!

    Crimes against women haven't increased...the media coverage of them has.
    As for me, I carry a concealed weapon (a .38) and I know how to fight. I can kick serious ass and no one scares me. No one's gonna f*ck with me.

    I carry a large military pocket knife but I would like to carry my own hand gun. I was told go straight for the throat, I just hope I don't have to get that close to someone because it could get ugly..

    I carry a gerber assisted-spring knife with me in my pocket or purse. Haha. And if in the right situation, I've been known to really do some harm to a person. :] Plus, after I turn 21, I'm planning on getting my concealed weapons license and a gun. My hubby's going to help me pick it out :]
