An article from The Gazzette deals with a woman who has been stalked by her ex-husband.
"I just need to get a gun and shoot myself," she told her parents one night. "Because that’s the only way this is going to end. Because I am the target, and you guys are victims because of it. That’s how it ends because without me, there is no problem."
Of course no mention was made of her or her parents aquiring arms & learning about self defense. The article & sadly this young woman seem to be content with her role as the helpless victim.
