Music banned from Strawberry Fields and other Central Park locations

Heh, I’d have to spend more time fighting the wind than my atkcater I’ve taken far more blows to the head playing sports than I have fighting (and I have the concussions to prove it)I’d say your average street thug has a significant experience advantage RE fighting compared to your average CCW holder. CCW holders tend to be pretty conflict averse (an armed society is a polite society)On paper deadly force situations are simple. Either it’s justified or it isn’t. Real life situations aren’t that simple given fluidity, circumstances, and the many variables that come into play. Perhaps I should do a post on this if I can figure out which way my brain goes. Damn concussions.
