Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Ė Donít Shoot Someone Attacking You With Axe Handle
GSL ^ | 4 August, 2013 | NA

Executive Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Mark Glaze had some interesting advice for people who were being attacked by someone with a weapon other than a gun during an interview with Chris Matthews.

MARK GLAZE: Very often somebody will come at you. They might want to have a fistfight. They might come at you with an axe handle. MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the axe handle armed or not?

GLAZE: Not with a gun.

MATTHEWS: I would consider him armed.

GLAZE: I have a word for him. I grew up in Colorado where my dad was a gun dealer, and a guy who shoots somebody who has anything other than a gun when they could have done something else like talk or fight with their fists –

MATTHEWS: How do you talk to a guy with an axe handle?

GLAZE: Well, you fight him. You run away. You deescalate the situation.

You cannot convince people who have no concept of logic or facts, but they can be great at illustrating the bankrupt mindset of the anti-freedom types.

I have an axe handle. Is the mayor saying I can attack him with it and he won’t do anything?

did even Chris Mathews sounded skeptical?

eh, probably not

You do not have a duty to run away or talk down your attacker. Or pee and poop on a rapist.

Would it be okay to defend myself with a bigger axe handle or does it have to be the exact same size?
What if the assailant isn't responding to diplomacy and I don't have an approved axe handle handy?

According to the story, that classic scene was an ad-lib, when Indie was supposed to smoothly take his whip and engage in a long hand-to-hand scene. Instead, the whip got hung up, and Ford ad-libbed the gun draw.

What an idiot.Even Mathews considers a person to be armed when brandishing an axe handle.I don't carry an axe handle to respond in an equal way,but I do have this S&W .45 that should take care of the problem.

It is absolute stupidity to subject yourself to a beating by someone with an ax handle if you have a weapon that can stop him.

I have a warning to anyone who would attack me with an ax handle. Don’t bring an ax handle to a gunfight.

I guess it’s good this ass-maggot is a mayor and not the Secretary of Defense.

How about an axe, Mr Glaze?

Are we going to give up our rights to self defense for the British doctrine of ‘proportional response?’

Way back when, in riot control class, we were taught that a thrown half-brick was a dangerous weapon, to which our our responses were limited to non-lethal force, but that a half-brick held in the hand and used to attempt to strike us was a dangerous and deadly weapon, which authorized the use of deadly force to counter. We were acting LEO’s, and our choices of action were more limited than civilians.

Attack me with an axe handle and I am armed and you had better be close to God, because you are about to meet him.

This guy is something else. He’s a gay advocate of getting beat to death instead of offending somebody by defending yourself with a firearm.

There’s a psychological thesis in there somewhere.
