    I've been ganged up on, but nowhere near like that.

    Amazing that these idiots think that life is like one of those movies where the hero barely gets nicked but manages to gun down 10-20 bad guys with AK-47s who keep running into his line of fire ONE at a time. I bet they play a lot of video games and fancy themselves Rambos.

    Again, a great argument against them getting such guns.

      I didn't even get into the part where the police came and whilst insisting that I had done something to deserve the attack too the beer bottle that the woman used and broke it into tiny pieces on the concrete dock so that her finger prints would not be found ;)

      They did have guns and the only reason that I think we were not deep sixed by the police was that I had already made calls on the pay phone to the VA beach 911 center and to my father who was a criminal defense attorney - this was in a US Territory and the responding police were related to some of the assailants.  My British friend and the German guy I was with at the time were a bit freaked out when I started screaming at the officers, but they didn't understand how much leverage I was pulling by saying the things to the officers that I did; and why I actually did that so that was able to extricate us from the second potentially very threatening situation that we dealt with that night.  Right after the police officer destroyed the beer bottle I knew that was going to be the only way that we would not end up as fish food on that ferry dock.

      The moral of the story is run away from criminals trying to hurt you and make sure that the police they are related to know full well that lots of people know exactly where you are and NEVER believe bullshit about guns being nearly as effective means of survival as evasive moves or talking probably will be.
