I think the issue with a lot issues like this are results of emotions. I can only think of emotions, not logic, would allow someone to come to the conclusion that you did, but perhaps I'm wrong. So, I ask this sincerely, if the person who did you wrong had a knife, would you feel any differently about knives? Why?
Well first off, Ill explain the situation. I was sitting in a park, and a fellow asked me for directions. I was giving him directions, when two other guys started to approach us. I didnt think much of it until I heard the sound of a slide cock. I looked over and there it is about 10 yds away, a big ass 1911. I looked him dead in his eyes and knew he was ready to shoot. I just remember running so hard and still got hit with one of two shots. The dude who was talking to me tried to run after me, but really because he was scared. He looked like he had just seen a ghost. I kept running and finally he stopped. Later when the cops caught up with them, he had told them he couldnt keep pace. So no if the dude had a knife, my lung, gallbladder and liver would be just the way god intended them to be
