    I would do everything within my power, to take the axe away, that is my thinking. And when the cops showed up, I would explain myself some, and tell them to review the tape.

    And, yes, I would expect to be arrested, if I killed that bastard.
    As long as you maintain distance, you're relatively safe. If I had any reservations, I'd retreat further, draw my carry weapon and be ready. That alone may be enough to keep me safe. If 'it' came at me, yeah, I'd open fire. Self-defense, pure and simple.. And yes, I'd probably be arrested as well. And like you, I'd let the store's security camera exonerate me

    Maybe the criminal charges would be dropped after the DA reviews the video, but I'm sure the family will sue civilly. They always do. That's why one buys carry insurance.

    But, just seeing someone in the store like that, you bet I would just get the hell out as fast as I could
    OK. Me personally, my thinking is not about escape, it is about neutralizing a self-evident lunatic. Maybe thumbing it in the eye, would have worked, I don't know.

    My first idea would be to go for throat, BUT, I surely would not have engaged in conversation. That was a stupid thing to do, and I am sure that the man was taught to do that.
    Because, that is so stupid, that it must have been thought up by psychologists, and then taught in schools. Just look at how that worked out, that guy will be scarred for life.
    Shakespeare is being attacked in the universities now, which proves that the learned & the cognoscenti are bumbling oafs.
    Hamlet and King Lear are two of the best works of literature in the Western canon; and A Midnight Summers Dream is an hilarious work, full of silliness.
    Raise your children on those works, reading and watching them, if you want super smart kids.

    The problem was recognition and getting away before anything happens, then dropping your guard so the ax weilder gets the first blow in. I believe even a knuckle sandwich to protect yourself will result in jail time in the UK. While I votes kill the bastard you would have to be prepared to charge in an instant or jump back and draw before your struck with that ax. These people were not mentally ready to defend themselves or avoid conflict. The best victory in a fight is avoiding it IMHO.

    Transfer your thinking from the UK, to the US and put yourself in a Circle K or Seven Eleven. The axe maniac has taken a swing at the idiot that is talking to him, what would you do?
    That is my question. And what about Americans, have they been conditioned to avoid danger at all costs? I would say they have. And that is the wrong answer here.
    Violent confrontation is the right answer.

    Wow. Lizzie Borden walks right in, and nobody takes notice. A person comes into my space with an ax, a machete, a kitchen knife, or a crowbar I am instantly AWAKE. I am not trusting enough apparently to assume there's a perfectly reasonable explanation as to why someone is carrying an AX into the store.

    Yeah, if I see a would-be Lizzie Borden with an axe, my alarm bells will go off. And I would like to say that Britain has become a nation of idiots and savages.

    No question about it, "distance" is your friend. No knife is going to be effective against a determined aggressor with a long handled weapon.

    Sorry, but I would take a head shot or two. This is where a Crimson Trace is the ideal weapon, with me two aisles away.

    OK, but I respectfully disagree, I would go for the carotid.
