So, I'll be living in a not-so-good area in a month or so, and I'd like to modify a hoody that could potentially help me if I find myself in a bad situation. Due to me always being in/out of federal buildings, guns are a big no-no. I was thinking about pic related. I'm left-handed, so my line of thinking is if I'm getting mugged from the front, the bright-ass LEDs in the dark would distract the mugger and cause him to look away from my left hand, which I'd be using to activate the knife clipped on on the inside.

I've only sewn a handful of things in my life, and I have no idea what kind of material to use to secure the clip hole for the knife, be it leather or something else sturdy. I also wouldn't want the circuit for the right hand getting too complex, but I'm going to be getting a breadboard to get into electronics/electrical wiring anyways. I'm more concerned with the weight being too much in one place and pulling my sleeve down.

Thoughts on improvement? Am I just going to get stabbed or shot by redguard?

It's almost impossible to legally use a knife as self defense. Its also pretty difficult to use in practice. You're not an experienced criminal, so you wont shiv properly on your surprise alstrike and he will come back and kill you. If you do win somehow, the same government that turned the city into such a shithole that you had to defend yourself in such a way will prosecute you for murder because knives are scary

Carry mace. Get a secure compartment in your car to leave your gun in when you go to work.

Clip showing is arguable open carry

mace, armored motorcycle jacket, pear shaped carabiner. Mace in right pocket, carabiner in left. When your spidey senses tingle, stick your hands in your pockets, arm the mace and knuckle the carabiner. Mace in face, Left jump knee to nuts, hammer fist the carabiner in the back of their head. Practice makes perfect.
