If there is anything that all of the terrorist attacks over the past several months have taught us, it's that terrorism still sucks and people need guns to defend themselves. Oh yeah, there is one more thing: all of the gun laws in all of Europe and California couldn't keep those terror loving, AK-47 toting, bomb blowing dumbasses from getting guns and killing innocent people with them.
It is my own personal (but highly accurate) opinion that if the people in Paris and San Bernardino were able to protect themselves properly, the radicals wouldn't have been able to take out as many people as they did. I know that, in any gun-friendly state, there would be some sort of direct opposition. There would have been at least some people in the area with the ability to defend themselves and others against an attack like this.
Granted, whenever just a few self-defense pistols go up against superior firepower, like several AK-47s, the odds are severely stacked against us. However, the argument can also be made that, when several AKs go up against an unarmed populace, it gets even worse.
If you don't know how to make long distance pistol shots, now is obviously a good time to learn, so make sure you check out Amy Jane's video below, as she tackles a 200 yard shot with a Kahr CW 9 pistol.
I would take it one step further than Amy Jane, however, by saying that in this instance you should stack the odds as highly in your favor as possible. So, using some sort of dual purpose rest for cover to hide behind is key. You could use whatever is around you, like a car, a chair, or anything else suitable to use in hand stabilization and as cover.
Because, let's face it, in a situation like this, you're going to need steady hands, and something to hide behind. What do you think? Would you stand up to the terrorists? Or, would you run?
