There is a opinion about weapons that many people love to throw around which is this, never carry a weapon, be it a gun or knife, for self protection unless you’re willing to use it.

A Fatwa for those that don’t know is essentially religiously motivated hit and Rushdie had to live under one for ten years between 1988 and 1998. For his safety Rushdie was placed under the protection of the British government.
