    Short read on the dangers involved in intervening in someone else's situation

    Commentary by Evan Marshall

    I know a lot of us have read and heard viewpoints like this before; but there are always people out joining our forum who are new to concealed carry and I think this is an appropriate read. Not new, but something I'd never seen. Whether you consider it right or wrong, it's still just more information to consider.

    Good article.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Good advice from someone who has been there. What a sorry state of society we are in.

    Great read. Hopefully some of the armchair warriors and scenerio junkies here read it and fully understand that their proposed solutions and "sheepdogging" isn't always the best answer.

    Excellent article with great examples of the price of trying to be a hero.

    My gun is to protect me and my loved ones, not the world.

    Amen to that.

    Though I expect the "selfish coward" or "I'll save a life while you cower behind a desk" remarks from those who never even served in the military or LE and watch too much tv in 3...2...

    Let me know when it's safe to come out but please, for your own safety, don't try to look under my desk unannounced!

    Damn sure true, society really is jacked up; but I still thank God I was able to conceal carry again today!

    Great article,,,, good truthful read.
    I; to, have seen those helped turn against their helpers.

    This sums everything up pretty well.

    All true. Been sued a couple times myself, but in the heat of the moment, you tend to do what you are trained to do. Given time, I might think things over (what was said in the article is very, very true), if I'm not given that time, I may go with the training I have received in my life and pray that I've made a good decision.

    He sure made a good point. Getting involved when you don't know what's really going on seems a bad mistake. You cannot be a hero.

    I just wish good luck to the people while I'm looking out for number one.
