When I have kids I am not going to teach them the same thing, avoiding and defusing is the only option - there is no more 'standing your ground' when any confrontation can end deadly.
And if where you live the laws are such that deadly force in self-defence is permisible, you may want to carry and carry the attitude "don't touch me, i have a gun - don't touch me"
Gotta start teaching the kids to rat out and get on the good side of teachers (authority figures) rather than "If Johnny hits you, you hit him back, okay?"
Is there anywhere in the civilized world where deadly force in self defense isn't permissible? Does that country train all their citizens in non-lethal threat neutralization? Are you expected to just die if you can't safely subdue your attacker?
