Good post John.

I agree totally with this, and my experiance backs this up as well. When I was working as a bouncer, some of the guys carried as well. And I took to carrying one myself. It does nothing but make a bad situation worse.

As an anecdote: one night someone has a steel pen (one of those 'self defence pens') and was attempting to stab another patron in the neck with it. I was very tempted, intially, to use the knife. Instead, I chose not to, and was able to subdue the attacker without recourse to my knife. Had I not done so, I'd probably be in jail now (and probably have a longer sentence than the guy with the pen).

I'll never carry one again, at least not in this country. The temptation to use it is just too great.
