So How Should a 62-yr-old Defend Himself?

The Left loves to say that no one needs a gun, but how do you defend yourself against 4 armed thugs without something to equalize the situation? Jewelry salesman shoots 2 amid East Memphis robbery : Memphis Commercial Appeal
Four men, all described as speaking Spanish, had pounced on a traveling jewelry salesman, trying to take his merchandise.

Instead, 62-year-old Stephen Fleischman pulled his weapon and shot two of the suspects, leaving them bleeding in the parking lot as the others fled, Memphis police said. At least two of the suspects were armed.
And the "speaks Spanish" is relevant.
FBI officials said the groups of illegal immigrants stake out traveling salesmen and jewelry shows, sometimes traveling across the country.
Without a tool to equalize the situation, the old or the infirm would be at the mercy of the young and the violent. The single person, would be a the mercy of the gang of thugs. The thugs lost out this time around.

Self-defense is a human right, and in Tennessee it is your legal right.
