Brazil's Answer to the 2A

What I find most notable in that collection is the high number of third parties acting on behalf of others. 
 

Some random person driving by, sees the robbery in process and then just mows them down with their car. That is indicative of a level of community and shared responsibility that I just don’t know is as present here.

My favorite was the guy trying to walk on his broken leg. If you follow Active Self Protection on YouTube he's always showing videos out of Brazil. It's become a joke in the comments section. I will never visit Brazil.

Wow! Whatever it takes to protect the innocent. 

I mean in many ways a vehicle can be a better weapon than a firearm. I've seen cops mow people down too. Highly effective.

Play stupid games and Win stupid prizes. We need to start this in Memphis. Can I burrow a vehicle to use? 

I try to stay out of those parts of Memphis unless my wife asks me take her somewhere.  I think she’s gets a rush from putting our lives on the line. 😂

When I got out of college I worked in Memphis for 5 years in environmental consulting. Most our sites were in the hood. I do miss “6-Flags over Orange Mound” 

(Liberty Land).

Memphians ruin everything. I don’t even go to the Mid South Fair anymore.

Start at 7:05. The payoff is at 7:24.  😄

Sure wish they had laws like that here. Would definitely be nice

Ours may not be as specific as theirs re: motorcycles (I have no idea what Brazil's actual law is), but couldn't we do the same under our current use of force laws? Why would using a vehicle be any different than using a firearm?

If the attacker is placing you or another in reasonable fear of imminent death or serious bodily harm, a Buick may be just as effective as a Bushmaster, IMO.

I can see the Tacticool ads for M-Lok bumpers in both gun and car mags already . . . .

But, but, but then we'd have to ban CARS!

People would abuse the law. I’ll stick with the flawed laws we currently have.

So there was this one time we were were all having a few drinks in a city in the US. We were headed out and encountered two drug dealers. That were aggressively marketing their product. I had a spirited discussion with them about selling drugs to kids. If I hadn't been drinking, I would have realized they were police officers sooner. We all decided to pretend it didn't happen.  I've never seen a cop's eyes get so big.
