... "As runners, many people believe they are safe from assault because they think they can simply outrun any potential assailant. Unfortunately, that isn’t realistic. In reality, there are several steps to be taken to ensure your safety as a runner. First, be aware of your surroundings. Wearing headphones muffles sounds ... do it with just one earpiece. Second, vary your route. Some attackers will watch you to figure out the best spot to carry out the assault, so if they’re unable to guess which route you’re taking on any given day, you have that much more safety. Third, if you’re able, run with a friend or group. That isn’t possible for many runners, which brings us to number four: arm yourself. ... " ...

"As our nation has spent this past year lurching from mass murder to mass murder, the inevitable arguments often boil down to a simple question: Why do we have the constitutional right to bear arms?"

"The answers span from the philosophical to the practical - hunting, self-protection, limited government. But if you dig deep, there is often one underlying justification of the Second Amendment: People need arms to protect against government tyranny."

"This idea is not based in real life. When in modern U.S. history has anyone used guns to successfully defend themselves from government tyranny? The correct answer, of course, is, never." ...
