  •  You have to wonder what they think about self (5+ / 0-)

    defense at a basic level. If I had fear of...civilization...as they do, it would seem to me that proper self defense would require extensive body armor and bullet proof everything. Because that would make for real defense. A gun is merely another offensive weapon. You wont be able to defend yourself, because you can still be shot. You merely acquire the ability to shoot whomever is shooting at you. Normal people, however, dont want to walk around with body armor because lets face it, that would make you look like a lunatic. But it is the most rational course if youre in constant fear of assassination.
