    Axe Attack, How Would You Defend Against This? [Graphic]

    https://videos.dailymail.co.uk/video...3541225658.mp4

    This is heinous, and it is an attack upon everything decent. Some gender blender walked into a convenience store and took an axe to 2 people. {It looks like a guy, trying to look like a girl, at least to me.}

    For me, my defense would have been, to go for the throat of the attacker. By that I mean, I would have stopped the stabbed him in the throat, while defending against his swing. If you close in to an attacker with a long weapon, you take away some dangers, but not all of them. He can still bust you in your face, and then use the axe, while you are stunned.

    Well I would have definitely taken the threat seriously from the beginning, and most likely would have just left the premises immediately

    What about the danger posed by the ax maniac? Would you take him out or just let everyone fend for themselves? Would you yell out AXE!
    My thinking is, that it is a right now kind of danger, and would need remediation. Even if it meant picking up a can, and bashing his brains in with it.

    I don't think either one of them saw it coming. Of course, it's not every day someone walks into the Kwik-E-Mart packing like Paul Bunyan. I think the best defense would have been to maintain distance. But the guy seemed to be having a cordial conversation with....... 'it'.
    It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and politicians have to start selling candy bars and holding car washes to finance their campaigns.

    Something definitely seemed off, I'm sure they don't sell that axe in the store. I don't know for sure if I would have yelled axe, possibly. But I wouldn't have taken any action to remove the axe from the person. Next thing you know, you'll be the one going to jail. I really honestly and truly would just get the F out of there
    I saw it coming. I've seen crazy, and the first guy was a few inches away and should have been able to see it

    Something like that is unforeseeable, it does no occur to people that there really are psycho axe killers out there. OK, you maintained distance, then what? Would you shoot him/it?
    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.

    I think I will just stay out of shithole countries that would restrict my ability to put 3 230 grn HSTs to center mass. That seems to be a safe option.


    On a different note, how much of a loser is the attacker that he/she struck two people in the head with an axe and somehow did not appear to have killed either one of them?

    OK. I would have gotten violent with it.

    So from the beginning I managed to put myself in the shoes of the guy who started out having a conversation with it. If I were him, I would have definitely seen it coming and expected the worst outcome and I would have left immediately.

    If I were to be blindsided by that, and had enough wits about me, of course I would shoot until the threat was gone.

    But, just seeing someone in the store like that, you bet I would just get the hell out as fast as I could

    What if it happened at your local Circle K? Would you be willing to kill the attacker? And at what point would you put the .45's into it? A lot of this is rhetorical, and meant to have people think.
    There is nothing stopping that from happening in America, and it would be easy for someone to sharpen up an axe or hatchet, so that it would split a skull. That axe may not have been sharp.
