"Our prophet said we should protect ourselves"
I actually learned something from this article. It turns out the Sikhs generally have the right mindset when it comes to the relationship between peace, protection of the defenseless and self-protection . I knew of Sikhism before this madman went stupid, but I honestly didn't know the Kirpan was religiously designated for self-protection and protection of others. Some of them seem to have consumed the gun control koolaid, but the pro-carry guy quoted in this article really has the right ideas. He truly understands what his religion expects of him. Defense of self. The Kirpan is but a tool and he understands there are other tools that are better suited for this need in today's world. It is unfortunate more didn't consider this previous to the incident. Also, notice that some still think four minutes to wait for help from the police is acceptable. In reality, it is an eternity in a situation like that.
