Practical Vehicle Protection

S&W 9mm Sigma, Fobus holster, a full 16 round clip in a carrying pouch.

Here in Houston, TX, I keep this in the glove box of my truck. I figure the 9mm is good enough to go through any type of glass or thin material it finds in its way.

    2. Attempted carjacked twice. One citizens arrest, one guy running away in the night like a pussy. Surprisingly, both times without having to use a gun. Oh, wait. I don’t have a small penis. Sorry, almost forgot.

    3. You used your penis to apprehend these criminals… no wonder he ran… swing your non-small penis at them… I wouldn’t car-jack you either.

      Some of us do have a small penis and can easily make up for it by waving a gun that makes the carjackee’s penis become smaller.

    4. Lol.

      “Attempted carjacked twice.”

      –Insert line about learning from history–

      Don’t worry. I’m sure when somebody finally does carjack you with a gun or some other weapon, your gigantic dong will defend you and save the day.

      Self-Defense: The Great Myth of America’s Gun Industry
      www.consumerfed.org/pdfs/self_defense.pdf.

      Guns have long been seen as tools of self-defense in the United States. But, contrary to gun industry hype, unintended consequences often happen when people buy guns for self-defense. Studies by public health professionals have repeatedly found that having a gun around for any reason increases the likelihood that a family member—as opposed to a criminal—will be injured or killed with a gun. A 1997 American Journal of Public Health study showed that family members that had a history of buying a handgun from a licensed dealer were twice as likely to die in a suicide or homicide as were persons similarly situated who had no such family history of gun purchase. This increased risk persisted for more than five years after the handgun was purchased.
      Other studies have looked specifically at the more narrow question of keeping guns in the home for self-defense. One, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, found that having a gun in the home made it nearly three times more likely that someone in the family will be killed. This risk is particularly high for women, who are more likely to be killed by a spouse, intimate acquaintance, or close relative. An Archives of Internal Medicine study found that, with one or more guns in the home, the risk of suicide among women increased nearly five times and the risk of homicide increased more than three times.
      These and other studies have documented repeatedly the enhanced risk that comes from bringing a gun into the home. Even the gun press admits the risk in unguarded moments. Describing the demise of so-called “lintel guns,” firearms hung over the door ready for immediate action in frontier times, Shooting Sports Retailer noted:
      “Today, guns in a home used for self protection are not hung over the door but are more likely in a desk drawer or beside the bed in a night stand. When a child is hurt in a firearm accident it is often the self defense gun that was found, played with, and ultimately fired by the youngster.”
      But how often do people use guns successfully to protect themselves from criminal acts? Does it justify the deaths and damage that comes with guns? Apparently not. Most studies have found that guns play a relatively minor role in preventing crime but a major role in facilitating it. For example, the US Department of Justice study found that, on the average, between 1987 and 1992 only one percent of actual or attempted victims of violent crime, or about 62,000 people, attempted to defend themselves with a firearm. On the other hand, criminals armed with handguns committed a record 931,000 violent crimes in 1992. Data from the FBI’s Crime in the United States reveals that for every time in 1998 that a civilian used a handgun to kill in self-defense, 50 people lost their lives in handgun homicides alone.

      One advocate of the value of handguns for self-defense is Gary Kleck, professor of criminology at Florida State University in Tallahassee. Kleck and his colleague Mark Gertz claim their survey research indicates that civilians use guns in self-defense up to 2.5 million times a year. Naturally enough, the NRA and the gun industry have widely cited Kleck’s work as proof of the value of owning a gun. But Dr. David Hemenway, a professor at Harvard’s School of Public Health, dissected the work of Kleck and Gertz in The Journal of Criminal Law & Criminology, concluding that their survey contained ”a huge overestimation bias” and that their estimate is “highly exaggerated.” Hemenway applied Kleckand Gertz’s methodology to a 1994 ABC News/Washington Post survey in which people were asked if they had ever seen an alien spacecraft or come into direct contact with a space alien. He demonstrated that, by the application of Kleck and Gertz’s methodology, one would conclude that almost 20 million Americans have seen a spacecraft from another planet and more than a million have actually met space aliens.

    10. Whilst I agree with the spirit of that article, and certainly am against all things gunnish, it’s important to note that drawing direct correlations such as those in this article can be misleading. For example, you would probably find that a high proportion of “protection” gun owners live in areas with a low quality of life index. This would account for the high level of crime that might have inspired them to buy a gun. But such areas might also have a higher incidence of suicide, mental illness and all other kinds of things that could cause the effects these studies have seen. Obviously, I’ve got no data to back this up, but worth bearing in mind.

    11. All I have in my glove box is a roadmap. And maybe some gum and a couple of CDs.

      Mind you, I live in the UK where we have less car-jackings. And more importantly, less gun-loving Americans carrying weapons of death around, because it’s there right to be surrounded by lethal objects.

    15. I grew up hunting with guns and still enjoy it so I don’t think I am so much anti-gun, as maybe I am more pro-trigger-lock. Since my father’s death 20 years ago I’ve collected many stories and reports.

      Man Accidentally Kills Neighbor While Cleaning Gun
      24 Sep 2006

      WOAI.com San Antonio news. Texas

      Jesse Hernandez says he was cleaning his M-16 when it just went off. The bullet went through his wall and killed 24-year-old neighbor Salvo Garcia. This all happened late Friday night into Saturday morning on Bandera Road near Hillcrest. Garcia’s wife found her husband when she got home from work just after midnight Saturday morning. Police aren’t sure if any charges will be filed in the case but they do say the shooting does look accidental. Hernandez says he feels bad for the Garcia family and wishes it never happened. He also says he is getting rid of his gun. He bought it a few months ago for protection.

    16. a gun is a responsability just like anything else, you can kill someone or commit suicide with an automobile, and there are far more car deaths worldwide then gun violence yet nobody is protesting cars.

    18. My South African-emigré friend and I were talking a few years ago.
      “How are you?”
      “Oh, a bit glum. My brother died.”
      “Oh, crap, that’s rough. How did it happen?”
      “He was car-jacked in Jo’burg.”
      “Bloody hell, that’s really harsh.”
      “He’d have been OK except instead of just letting them take the car he tried to get his gun out of the glove compartment and he was shot by all three car-jackers.”
      Can we see a moral to this story?
