IL: Hard to defend yourself if your firearm is not loaded

"IL" in this case being the international abbreviation for Israel, not Illinois.

12 soldiers wounded, 1 seriously, in suspected terror car-ramming in Jerusalem

At least 12 soldiers were wounded, including one seriously, in a suspected car-ramming terror attack in Jerusalem early Thursday [06 Feb] morning, police and medics said.

The incident occurred shortly before 2 a.m. on Jerusalem’s David Remez Street near the First Station, a popular entertainment hub. Police said the driver of the vehicle fled the scene and “a large force of officers were carrying out searches.”

...

It did not appear that the soldiers were able to shoot at the driver during or after the attack, [IDF Spokesperson] Zilberman said.

“This happened in seconds. We understand that some soldiers tried to put magazines into their guns and tried to go after the car, but this happened quickly,” he told reporters.

If your gun isn't loaded it's a very expensive paper weight!
Best to practice saying " hold on Mr. Bad Guy I have to load my gun so I can defend myself"
Government, like fire is a dangerous servant and a fearful master
If you ain't paranoid you ain't paying attention
Don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war let it begin here- John Parker

You're not alone. This forum seems to enjoy intentionally misleading and/or deliberately vague thread titles.
