I’ve noted several times how I always carry a gun when I’m biking. Many people, who generally don’t carry guns themselves, find this behavior odd. They demand I justify my action to which I usually inform them that I have no duty to do so (My polite way of saying “Why? Because fuck you, that’s why!”). But Every Day No Days Off posted video of a mountain biker being robbed a gunpoint that pretty much makes my case for me:
You never know when somebody bad is going to target you or what reason they will target you. That being the case it’s usually a good idea to be a prepared as possible. The biker was lucky that the thief only took his bike. It’s not difficult to imagine the thief simply shooting the biker since they appear to be out in the middle of nowhere.
