The Illinois State Police say ...

"Ladies, vomit on your attacker."

Pardon the graphic ad from AmmoLand, but do you really think this will work? Or would it enrage your attacker and result in even more violence?

Oh, don't forget the nail file. They say that's a good defense, too.

I don't recommend living in a state of fear or paranoia. I do recommend being alert and being prepared to defend yourself, as soon as you think you might be in a dangerous situation.

I also think the threat of violence will start going down, once we finally have a concealed-carry law in Illinois. When the criminal doesn't know if you are armed, then he is likely to think twice before attacking you. Or he'll attack and have a rude awakening.

If you are alert and attentive to your surroundings and your safety, the criminal will pick someone who isn't. Don't be the one who isn't.

Tasteless. Doesn't say much about the people pushing the CCW.
