I can make these stereotyping comments because I'm Asian.
I am too. And that is hilarious. Actually, I actually did Jet Li two Cholos who were messing with my bike (I know, who bikes in LA) near a strip club and a Mexican restaurant way, way, east on the long street just south (or north) of Garvey (I think, geez its' been only 9 months, and I'm forgetting street names already), during my first year in LA. I was 22 then. Yeah, I had some martial arts training, but mostly, I just just pissed and they just didn't see it coming (Angry skinny Asian at 9 o'clock.) Otherwise, I might not have had the opportunity to be writing this now. I hope I'm a little more circumspect in my old age, and wouldn't pull dumb shit like that anymore, especially with the proliferation of handguns in the LA area. I miss the boba shops full of yappy Asian girls.
I plan on purchasing a handgun when I turn 21. I believe that home defense is important. I don't live in a high-crime area at all, but there are a few hundred murders in my city each year, and it's good to be prepared to defend yourself if the situation calls for it. A guy I know went to a gun show a few days after his 18th birthday. For $375, he purchased an AK-47 (not full auto), a 10-round clip and two 30-round clips, and 250 rounds of piercing ammunition. He bought it mostly for show, but enjoys shooting it on occasion.
This makes me so glad that I'm a Canadian and that I lived in Pasadena and now in Cambridge MA. That is plain crazy.
