The pivotal moment which led to my decision to carry a firearm was when I was assaulted by 3 men who demanded money and probably attempted to rob me (I was choked into unconsciousness for a significant portion of the encounter, so I don't know what happened from the time the big guy got his arm around my neck to when I regained consciousness convulsing on the ground and he graciously granted me permission to leave), and my only recourse was to call the police afterwards and explain what happened, so that they could nod sympathetically and do nothing about it. It led me to realize that nobody else has the responsibility to defend me against attack, and that I have to do that for myself.
