Question of the Day: "What should people do when they’re having to confront a criminal by themselves?"


After the Christchurch atrocity, and the political reaction to it, crime researcher Dr. John Lott asks the obvious question:
"Police are extremely important in stopping crime, but the police can’t be there all the time. The police themselves understand that they virtually always arrive on the crime scene after the crime has occurred. And that raises a real question, what should people do when they’re having to confront a criminal by themselves?"
Anyone like to have a crack at answering that? Because your politicians haven't. And won't.

  1. Isn't it insane that the NZ Police have said for years, explicitly, that 'self defence' is not a justification for owning a firearm
