The same people that don't believe anyone should bear arms are mystified some bad people still do. In the end, it's the bad men that keep the other bad men from the door. Samuel Colt made men and women as physically equal more than anyone has ever accomplished in history.

A means of self defense would have been common sense at that point. No matter what your opinions are, a woman alone in a dangerous country WILL be at a high risk. Going there with no training/weapons/partner/protection was just straight up stupid.

I see reports of people all the time travelling to dangerous countries to prove everyone is wrong, that they're not dangerous... and subsequently get slaughtered/imprisoned.

Its not brave, its purely ignorant.
