A friend mentioned this to me today as I am not up to date on legalities. Currently I have my cane that helps me get around to use if worst came to worst for self defense. I was looking at a couple CCW options as there have been a few armed robberies lately in the complex at which I work. Looked at everything from .22 to .45 and haven't found anything I liked yet, thus the cane is still the primary tool. Now that I am completely off track, what I am curious about is whether as a larger individual would it be tougher to prove you felt your life was in danger? He was implying that at 300 pounds it would be tough to show fear from someone smaller. I understand a weapon is a weapon, but when you take into account the difference in body mass does it offset burden of proof?
