A little over 5 years ago I had a cervical fusion...a cervical disc completely ruptured, and was impinging on both the spinal cord and the root nerves branching out in the affected foramen. The surgery went very well, and I now have a plate and four big screws holding the vertebrae together (althought it's mostly the bone growth that's covered everything that provides the structure).

Post-surgery I used a foam cervical collar to help stabilize things while walking around. I couldn't turn my head to scan my surroundings, I couldn't run, and I certainly wouldn't have been able to engage in any kind of fighting, for several months. I have never felt more like a target for violence in my life. It was like wearing a sign saying, "Attack me, I'm helpless."

So I can't even imagine what it's like to be in a wheelchair without the means to defend yourself.

It strikes me as only common sense that if someone is in a wheelchair, or is otherwise disabled physically, that a pistol is the most reasonable tool with which they can prevent themselves from becoming a victim. I applaud those who refuse to depend on others, and choose to be as independent as possible.

Nobody should have guns, expecially handicapped people.
