In typical liberal fashion, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) handed out some strange self-defense pointers.
The Executive Director of Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-gun crusade, Mark Glaze, suggested that victims of potentially lethal attacks should use their words – not their legal firearm – to protect their life.
Speaking to Chris Mathew’s giant head, Glaze said victims should “deescalate the situation” rather than employing deadly force against their attacker:
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.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the axe handle armed or not?
MARK GLAZE: Not with a gun.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: I would consider him armed [laughter].
MARK 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 -
CHRIS MATTHEWS: How do you talk to a guy with an axe handle?
MARK GLAZE: Well, you fight him. You run away. You deescalate the situation.
According to Glaze, if someone attacks you with a wooden axe handle, you should chat with him.
