If was in the store I would back off from anyone carrying a axe and I certainly would not say anything to provoke them as it appears the first person did.
He had enough notice to just close and defeat the swing. Just another average person with little to no h2h skills as well lacking SA and forethoughtThis is an old one. Pretty sure this was posted and discussed on here before.
Keep an eye on a person with a weapon and when they go back to start their swing, step in and close the distance. Get off the power arc of the weapon.
So, I think I should expound on what I was talking about in another one of the "befores".He had enough notice to just close and defeat the swing. Just another average person with little to no h2h skills as well lacking SA and forethought
ETA: He/she may end up in a coma or worse if I lost it like I did with the kid with the bat in a parking lot long ago. Adrenaline puts me in fight or flight, usually fight mode. Trying to kill me is not your best decision if you don't take me out before I can respond.
If I've gone a little overboard and the courts believe I need to be reined in, fine, take me to the VA and put me on some drug to suppress the documented PTS for a few months. The PTS is only kicked in when someone tries to kill me. The response is automatically with prejudice.
I'm a peaceable personality with the ability to let loose the dogs of war when threatened. There's degrees of fear, put me in enough imminent jeopardy, who knows how that will present in a response. I know it's happened before, which means it could easily happen again
HE is a HE. There is no her in that thing.Looks like the he/she has a knife in her back pocket as a backup to the axe.
I might strike a conversation with her at the counter, but he/she'd be allowed to go ahead of me, being the gentleman I am. I'd not be taking my eyes off her for a second if she was in striking range which she was. Not in todays world anyway
I'd still prefer to refer them folks as he/she's 😯HE is a HE. There is no her in that thing.
You can see they are having words right before the attack. Then dude turns his back on a tranny with an axe in 7-11. Dismissed his adversary and paid dearly for it. So did the other victim. Musta been a dull axe because clean swings like that with a sharp one woulda taken their heads off.
And I love how they call what looks like a normal axe a ‘battle axe’.
Had it been black instead of red it woulda been an ‘assault axe’ instead and even deadlier!
