The most critical component in self-defense is not a gun, it is a determined mind. The would-be victim in this case had both the will and the tool to stop a rapist from completing his assault. That led us to a question from a caller about what criteria to look for in a quality folding knife.
Yet again we are treated to a half-answer to firearms related accidents and negligence. Rather than educate both adults and children in the Four Universal Firearms Safety Rules, instead you can spend $300. Is it so hard just to learn to do the right thing?

“Police said a woman repeatedly stabbed a man who pulled her into a Fort Worth apartment and tried to sexually assault her Friday morning.
Fort Worth police said they responded to an attempted sexual assault call in the 8300 block of Brentwood Stair Road at about 8 a.m. and met with a woman who said the man grabbed her and pulled her into an apartment.
The woman, who had a small knife, cut the man multiple times in self defense, according to police. She then ran from the apartment and called police.
Police said they searched the area and found the man in an a nearby apartment complex. They took arrested him on a charge of attempted sexual assault and transported him to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.
“Right now, they’re pretty severe,” Fort Worth Police Department Cpl. Tracey Knight said of the man’s wounds. “He is going to be in the hospital for probably a little while, so she did a great job of fighting him off.”
Authorities said the woman was also transported to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.
Police said the woman had just begun carrying the knife after hearing about multiple recent sexual assaults in the area.
Detectives are investigating whether this incident is related to a possible sexual predator that has been reported in this area, according to police.“
“There are times when a gun shouldn’t fire. In the hands of a toddler, say, or really in the hands of anyone except its legal owner, or those entrusted by the owner. Guns are so easy to operate that even a toddler can accidentally fire one and injure or kill someone, as happened at least 43 times already in 2015. Veri-Fire’s Guardian fingerprint-reading gun safety accessory wants to change that, by keeping the gun locked for everyone but the gun’s owner. Over the past year, Popular Science met with members of the Veri-Fire team several times to examine the safety accessory,in the last stages of its development. On November 16th, the team’s crowdfunding campaign goes live on Indiegogo.
Founded by Skylar Gerrond and Matt Barido, both U.S. Air Force veterans, Veri-Fire intends the Guardian to be a value-neutral tool for reducing harm. It is, first and foremost, a safety accessory. The Guardian works in conjunction with safeties in the firearm itself, and doesn’t preclude a gun owner from storing their weapon in a gun safe or lock box.“
