“Yes, I have taken them in the past. … I think it’s a very necessary thing for every woman to start feeling better about her ability to take care of herself.”

“Yes. … You never know what’s going to happen, and you want to be prepared.”

“Yes, sir, I would. … I don’t know how to defend myself when it comes to that time; I’d probably just run.”

“Yes, I would, because I think it’s good to know how to defend yourself, and if anything were to happen, I would want to be safe rather than sorry.”

Cmon man, I need a conceiled-carry license just to wear a long sleeve shirt or to wear gloves. Noone will mess with me ;)

I guess I should, since I don't particularly like guns and they won't let me carry my katana around the town. But whatever, a set of keys as brass-knuckles, go for the side, the groin, or the neck. Or just don't worry about. Never had trouble anywhere I've gone.

prospector: I was born able to move faster than the human eye can follow, since then I've just trained my reaction time.

I have been taking one. But now my work is conflicting with it, so I haven't been going much recently.

Oh come on! A grandmother could take any of the "guys" that post on this newspaper. You need some new blood on here. Seriously. Why did not one of you learn things like spelling, how to punctuate a sentence, how to pick a subject and stick to it. Whatever you people are taking, do you buy it on E Bay?

"A grandmother could take any of the “guys” that post on this newspaper."Hey, thanks to Taekwondo, I could spin-kick the cigarette right out of your grandmother's mouth. Of course, she'd have to just stand there, and I'd accidentally break her jaw badly in the process, as I'm not that cool. /metaphorical cigarette

I played plenty of D & D when I was a youth, but I don't recall anything called a "bow staff".
