Don't Bring a Knife to a Gunfight

Or how is a 65-year-old supposed to defend himself from an armed 40-year-old? Police: Intended Victim Shoots Mugger In New Haven - Courant.com
A would-be mugger armed with a knife who tried to a rob a man armed with a handgun was shot Monday afternoon in the city's Wooster Square Park.

"Give me all your money or I'll stab you," the mugger told the man, according to New Haven police Officer Joe Avery.

The suspect backed his intended victim up against a fence, Avery said, then the man pulled a gun and fired.
The hapless robber is in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the chest. The 65-year-old man was questioned and released.

Self-defense is a human right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
