Thank you for this. People who want to carry guns in case of a
robbery should do some self-examination and ask themselves if they
can really end a life without hesitation or remorse. To have a gun
and pull it, if you are not fully prepared to end a life, is just not
prudent- your drawing could escalate the situation, and your
hesitation could get you killed, possibly with your own gun.
The first "move" my sensei taught me, years ago, is the slow draw of
the wallet from the back pocket followed by the gracious handover of
the wallet to the guy with the gun. Cash, gold and diamonds are
replaceable, whereas death, unlike diamonds, really IS forever,
according to most medical experts.
