I didn't suggest it,it is a simple fact. Yes of course you want to arm yourself BEFORE you are attacked. What wait until it's over & go to Somali & arrest them lol lol or find them in 100's of mls. of open ocean? or coast line?<quoted text>
"But your suggesting they wait until they are boarded until they do something is wrong in all ways."
And here's where there's disagreement.
There are times where you let the crime happen and then catch them later when the adrenaline isn't flowing so high and cornering the animal where fight becomes the only solution for them.
The suggestion to arming commercial vessels is basically saying the same thing as arming bank tellers to prevent bank robberies.
Yes Banks DO ARM themselves, as many ,many others that handle valuable goods,convenience stores have off duty cops working 24/7 .
Should I wait & ask a home invader what their intentions are BEFORE I load my guns? It is no diff. only on a MUCH BIGGER scale & with much worse people
Also no matter the crime,letting it happen then dealing with it later ,historically only leads to more & more crimes being committed. Is similar to the arguments on stand your ground laws & concealed carry permits. Rick
