Subject: Who's tricking whom?
To the editor,
gun pitch deceives women (AJC, 11/08/2001), the author suggests
that women have been tricked by the marketing departments of the gun manufacturers
into believing they are vulnerable to bigger, stronger people who want to do
bad things to them. Even if every statistic she cites is true, there remains
the question: What's a woman to do?
There really are big, strong, evil
people out there who want to do bad things to other people, including women.
While the courts have repeatedly ruled that the police have no legal duty to
protect the individual, you do have a moral duty to protect yourself and your
family. Sam Colt called his new invention "the equalizer" for a reason.
Oh, but that's just a marketing trick.
Assuming that there really are "tricks"
in play here, do you want to be tricked into being prepared with the tools to
defend against violent predators or do you want to be tricked into being a defenseless
victim, at the mercy of violent predators? I think women can decide which strategy
is of benefit to them.
