A 9mm pistol in hand would prevent this from happening again. Shoot first, and let the cards fall where they may. You are the only one responsible for your own safety.

This is scary! However, he probably is not all that bright and will eventually be caught... hopefully before anyone else is attacked.

These real estate sales ladies, particularly, are at high risk--an easy target for rape --or worse. They are just sitting ducks for disaster.

Unfortunately unlike in Texas, it's hard to get away with that here in Georgia.

Yes if one did have a 9 in their hand at all times it might work. Otherwise it would be the first to shoot and I don't think anybody in their right mind carries a gun in their hand, 24/7. The perps are ready before you are and if they know you have or carry a gun, they will shoot first and you will never know what hit ya! It would be hard for a woman to open a purse, FIND the gun, pull it out, get a sight picture and pull the trigger and hit someone. By that time the perp would have taken it away from her and used it on her. Carrying a gun carries a lot of responsibility, not just to pull a trigger!

Dekalb Co. is really going in the toilet these days. Home invasions, homicides every other day, rampant burglarys and sexual assaults. CEO Vernon needs to show a little more concern for his current job than the senate seat that he's after.
What do you mean "these days"? Most of Dekalb has been in the toilet for years. Vernon Jones does not have enough power to fix anything, he is a puppet and a bad one at that. He blames the county commisioners for everything. Example...I was at a bar watching the GA Ga Tech game and many other games and there he was, sitting at the bar, drunk, flirting with all the girls (I know the girl he took home that night). I had a chance to talk to him and asked him what was happenning with certian issues confronting the construction industry and older nieghborhoods. His answer was he didn't know and it's the commisioners fault. He said they are all a bunch of idiots and need to be voted out. I agreed for the sake of agreeing all the while knowing he was the reason nothing ever gets resalved. So there you have it...a guy who could care less about his county as long as there are still drunk women he can hit on.

Agreed, but most perpetrators are cowards by nature, and would think twice about accosting an armed person.

GTMIT,
It is agreed,
Our society has been forced to regress. If we still had some "Judge Roy Beans'" on the bench when these perpetrators are brought into Court, the crime rate would probably drop like a rock.

mace or a gun would not have helped this poor realtor... just keep an extra burrito or chalupa... if you get attacked, throw it and it will distract your attacker enough so you can call INS.. or get your assault rifle out of your trunk... your choice...

what?!?! nobody else keeps a high capacity rifle in their vehicle?

You are responsible for your own safety, but do you want a bunch of untrained nervous real estate agents running around with guns? How much goos would a gun have done if you are attacked from behind in a sneak attack? I am a gun owner, and I fully support the 2nd Amendment, but I don't trick myself into believing that the gun by itself will save me. A little common sense goes a long way.

Absolutely not, I do not want any untrained person to own or have a gun in their possession. Training is just one of the responsibilities of a responsible gun owner. My father trained me when I was just 5 years old the proper use of a 12 gauge shotgun, and a 22 caliber rifle. It was the American way. It still is.

A baseball bat between the legs, in the stomach or on top of the feet works wonders as well or just use those high heeled pumps....the heel....also works on the bridge of the nose. They would also work on Vernon Jones when he's drunk and trying to show everyone how intelligent he is and that he should be elected to the US Senate. What a joke that excuse of a man is! Women who go out with him or go to bed with him must be desperate!

The rulers of DeKalb County care nothing about anything except the money they can line their pockets with. They could care less if homes and cars are being broken into or people attacked. You people so anxious to move into DeKalb should take note of those FACTS. Your property taxes will go up every year, the county will take away any tax breaks homeowners were promised, the county will allow crime to rage onward and the streets fall into disrepair and if you think things will improve with the more police the county is promising, think again. More and more of us are planning to move out of DeKalb and sell our homes to the suckers who listen to Vernon and his cronies and believe how great DeKalb is. It's great for only the money grubbing county officials.

There are NO "rulers" in Dekalb County. If Mr. Vernon Jones thinks he has power to RULE, he must be reminded that he is merely a Public Servant and Trustee of the people of Dekalb County.
