A recent video of a woman stabbing a 3-year-old boy in Tbilisi, Georgia has caused uproar on the Internet.
Many political commentators, most notably Caleb Hull, see this as a case for people to conceal carry wherever they go.

The woman abruptly turns and stabs the young boy in the face twice. Initially, she appears to walk away, but then jolts back towards the boy to continue stabbing him.
However, the mom shields the boy, and the woman attempts to stab the girl. The dad is then able to get his daughter out of harm’s way, while the mother pushes the assailant away.
The dad tries to chase after the female attacker, but she brandishes her knife and waves it at him. In doing so, the man runs off while the woman walks across the street.
On Wednesday morning, police arrested a 51-year-old woman linked to the attack. According to authorities, the investigation is ongoing.
Georgia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs reports that the woman was charged with intentional infliction of grave injury to the health of a minor, which could result in a 7 to 10 year prison sentence.
The boy was later taken to a local hospital where he is receiving treatment for cuts on his nose and cheek.
Naturally, those who believe in Second Amendment rights offered their two cents to this video.
The group Being Libertarian commented: “Conceal carry. Because you never know where crazy is.”

Unlike a lot of other people around the world, Americans are privileged to have some form of gun rights where everyday civilians can arm themselves for matters of self-defense.
Concealed carry is legal in all states in America, although some states have incredibly restrictive carry requirements.
Incidents like these remind us how the U.S. remains exceptional among nations when it comes to issues of self-defense.
Most other nations do not enjoy the luxury of having an armed populace that can defend itself at a moment’s notice.
