A guy is following your wife home. She calls to have you wait outside for her arrival. If you stand in front of the guy’s car with your phone out, he will run your ass over, breaking your back before driving away.
Or you can be out front with a weapon (open carry is legal on your own property) like an AR308, which will punch through that little shitbox of a car. All I know is that I wouldn’t be lying in a hospital, disabled.
