Well as luck would have it, I did have to rely on that system once and within 2 minutes of a 911 call, the perp was hogtied and in cuffs. I can't say those two minutes in between the call and their arrival didn't feel like 20, but I don't know that a gun would have lead to a better outcome. Different yes, but not better, as the perp probably would have been shot by me, or heck, he might have wrestled if from me and shot me, as can happen. We both ended up with broken noses, but he went bye bye and has a felony conviction following him for life. Don't want to turn this into a gun debate, talk about a divisive issue that gets stuff off the beaten path. I've owned two in the past, a .22 for fun, and a Beretta 9mm right from the factory in Italy, bought and eventually sold for a nice tidy profit. My main weapon of choice now is the dreaded foamy plane.

Don't underestimate the damage that can be inflicted with that phone, that's old fashioned American plastic/steel right there, and it will hurt. I'll let the folks trained in LE deal with LE issues, they are trained for it, work it every day (but oddly enough rarely if ever pull their service weapon).

Most if not all of the stories I've seen or read so far that deal with people taking matters into their own hands don't end well for them. I'm thinking it's not worth the hassle.

Ok...I guess people really do find whatever they are looking for...This thread is just another example...Different strokes for different folks... I'm glad everything worked out OK in your time of need.

I advocate full scale AC have a device just like this with at least a half mile radius range to knock out drones in emergency response areas.
if not on the AC then on a ground station with a tall retractable antenna.
I't is illegal to interfere with radio transmissions per FCC regulations. Devices designed to intentionally interfere or block radio transmissions are illegal to purchase, possess, or use.

Yes, The government at all levels does have a strong tendency to exempt itself from laws/regulations it forces on it's citizens through coercion.
