Let’s put aside the .38 for a second. Let’s pretend that the brass knuckles are legal. What if, by some random chance, i run into either multiple attackers or one attacker with a knife or a gun and I somehow win…with my brass knuckles. Wouldn’t that be different than the above scenario in which a seemingly defenseless and harmless mugger attacks me with his bare hands and is assured that a jury would take his side?
In a self defense situation, nobody will attack me unless they think they can win. It’s not like I would be beating up someone half my size and unarmed at that by any means.
While I don’t disagree that this would be a different situation, the odds of you “winning” in one of those situations is slim. Very slim.
On top of that, what makes you think that in a robbery or other real self defense situation, you would be able to get them onto your hand in the first place?
Don’t forget that things aren’t like the movies. The guy isn’t going to talk to you long enough to allow you time to put them on in your pocket or some shit.
And never assume you know what a jury is going to do.
I just own a pair of the brass and really like the idea of OPTIONS. If someone from another country thinks we’re paranoid for choosing to exercise our civilian rights (the 2nd Amendment), then they can kiss our big, fat, arrogant, American asses; because we really don’t give a fuck. [/quote]
