    If I get mugged and I empty a magazine into the offender am I required to then administer first aid as a trained responder?

    EDIT: I also just learned the difference between a magazine and clip, so thanks for that.

    No problem. It's a very common thing that people constantly mess up due to TV and movies.

    Bang bang bang!

    Well, not really. I don't have a gun, or have taken any safety courses. However, I just learned that the only thing that stands in my way of getting a conceal and carry in Massachusetts is a 4 hour safety course and a letter of request to my local police chief. I wonder if the argument of working in a gangland hospital is sufficient reason to warrant personal protection.

    If I was mugged I'd pretty much just shit myself and give him my wallet. Then I'd piss myself and start crying.

    If I was with my ladyfriend and mugged I hope I'd do the same to protect both of us, but less bodily fluid release so she would still respect me later.

    I've been harassed a lot by people
    but never mugged
    which is surprising considering I often walk home at like 1-3am

    once while walking home from work at 2 AM I thought I was going to get mugged

    but the guy just asked me if I wanted to make fifty bucks

    and when I replied that I didn't he asked me for the time and then disappeared into the darkness

    My uncle was mugged in a parking garage back when he lived in DC.

    Three dudes in Scream masks jumped him, knocked him down and kicked him, took his money, and then tazed him before booking it.

    Poor guy had nightmares for a little while after that and the whole experience was not a small factor in his deciding to move as soon as he could afterwards.

    What was the deal for the 50 bucks?

    Holy crap, that's some hardcore mugging. No threats, just a rock to the head.

    Two guys were following me trying to convince me to go down a nice safe alley with them to drink. I wasn't having it, so one of them shouted and this dude comes running from behind a fence with a big fucking rock.

    You should have jumped on the guy's back and put him in a sleeper hold.

    Then you could have faced their leader in a battle of wits, to the death.

    Fire Truck is actually a kung fu badass and used that to push the guy away.

    I'm not really joking here

    All of my roommates at one point were really good at martial arts, and I kind of hoped that one day somebody would have tried something dumb (minus knives or guns) when all of us were nearby.

    man that sounds brutal, almost getting stabbed

    I had shitty friends in college and they always made me walk the 30mins home to my dorm by myself at like 3 in the morning, so I almost got mugged/raped/whatever he was gonna do once

    I yelled at him that I had my phone on me and started dialing 911 or whatever I was doing, and bumped into me as he ran past me and disappeared

    it was pretty scary and I basically stopped going to my friends house late at night after that, cause they still didn't care to give me a ride back

    He was actually going to mug him. The "wanna make 50 bucks" was his opening line, sure to be replied to with a "hell yes" because who wouldn't want to make 50 bucks? After that would have followed a snappy comeback and instructions to hand over his wallet.

    When Dichotomy replied with a "no" it threw him off and he didn't know what to do, so he asked for the time and went away.

    I've had:

    My apartment robbed. They took everything that wasn't nailed down. Everything.
    My car broken into twice. First time, they smashed the window and ripped out the stereo. Second time they smashed the window and stole my brand new prescription fucking sunglasses. Assholes.
    A knife pulled on me twice. I ran from one guy who pulled it too fucking soon to do anything and was left having to chase me. The other I ended up in an altercation with. I got a cut that didn't require stitches and he needed medical attention as well.

    I wonder if someone was behind you and said 'give me your wallet' and you just kinghit behind you as hard as you could and ran away whether you would be (legally) within your rights

    probably

    There's a lot of talk about proportionate force and stuff but I figure that's probably self-defence enough so long as you're not using weaponry or whatever

    I don't take the trash out at night because of spiders.

    Seriously black widows are staking out my house.
    I've killed so many of them, I fear one day they will organize and get me in my sleep.

    I go running at night all the time now.

    I figure if somebody were to attack me when I'm running, I'd probably be fucked since I'd be too tired to try anything or run too fast.

    But I live in a really safe neighborhood.

    I think I'm the perfect combination of sizable+not rich looking

    Yeah, I just look kind of like a hobo so people assume I'm not worth mugging. Also, I'm big enough to look intimidating.

    The hobo defence doesn't always work, I can attest. Giant hobo, probably much better results.

    I live in a terribly complicated area of roads that are not always well lit; consequently I was jumped by 3 guys travelling home one night at like 1:00 in the morning. I held my own better than I expected I would. They still made off with what little money I had though, but not my shoes. I smacked one guy in the face a few times with same-said shoe and sacked another one when he tried to choke-hold me.

    The adrenaline rush was unreal but I was twitchy and jumpy for a few months afterward, especially if I had to travel late.
