    And he's right:eusa_clap:

    SPARTANBURG, SC (USA Today) -- A county sheriff in South Carolina is urging women to get concealed weapons permits and carry guns.

    GoUpstate.com reports that Spartanburg Sheriff Chuck Wright made the statements while discussing an attempted rape at a local park. Wright suggested a .45-caliber weapon, because "you don't have to be accurate, you just have to be close" to a target, the website reports.

    I think something smaller would be better to handle. A person who is going to assault you is not going to care about what caliber weapon it is the appearance of weapon that causes fear.

    Does it matter if people are fearful of the sight of a firearm compared to the fear a woman will have when being assaulted? A 45 is a lot better than a 9mm

    The best caliber is one in which the operator can effectively recover from the recoil and put muzzle back on target. A miss from a .45 is not as effective as a couple of center mass hits from a 9mm.

    My wife is proficient with all the firearms we have in the arsenal but prefers the LCR in 38 special due to its concealablilty.

    A heavy gun has less recoil. Smaller caliber gun does not have the knock down power the bigger calibers do, A person that is drugged out will not stop if hit with a 9mm and I have seen reports from police officers that a 40cal didn't stop people supped up on drugs

    Police has to work seriously to lower crime rates instead of giving advice to others.

    Until such time as we can all have our own personal police officer, innocent people should be encouraged to carry firearms to protect themselves from scum.

    Police are not here to lower crime rates or prevent criminal activity.
    The Police respond to criminal activity, they don't prevent it. Kind of like EMT's don't prevent heart attacks, they respond to them.

    A more accurate (and honest) way to put it would be that a ""S.C. Sheriff urges women to obtain carry permits so they can legally posess a weapon" but that would not be sensational enough would it?
