    A good read, It's been around for a while, I to have it saved.

    I think most here will qualify as a Sheepdog,
    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand

    I'm surely not a wolf or a sheep.

    I'm not really sure I want to be a sheepdog either.

    I'm looking out for me and mine. Everyone else should take care of themselves. I'm not interested in looking after them.

    It's a good read guys, but be careful with this kind of stuff. Just because we have a permit to carry doesn't mean it's our place to protect the community. Thunder Ranch and Gunsite emphasize that the gun is for our protection (including loved ones), not the community/society as a whole.

    Gunsite has FOF drills that illustrate how badly invervention can turn out, and it can go down hill very quickly. A shoot out could injure bystanders, get you killed, etc.

    I'm not saying we shouldn't help people in need, but we better weigh the costs very carefully. There are numerous stories of armed citizens intervening and dying for their effort. A hero perhaps, but a dead one. IIRC, that's exactly what happened at the Atlanta courthouse.

    Plus that BG you shoot, could be an undercover officer. Intervention is a risky, risky business. So if being a sheepdog implies intervention, you may want to rethink that.

    tangle: point well taken, and i agree to that point. appears this was originally directed towards an audience of LEO and Military servicemen.

    I must qualify my earlier''woof!'' statement -

    I am sheepdog for my flock. That includes me and my family, and not by default third parties. I am not carrying to protect the rest of the world at large.

    Should there be a third party factor - it would be entirely assessed according to circumstances, my conscience and best judgement.

    I am not now a sheepdog but I have been one.
    I don't particularly like to be with sheep for a long time.
    I like sheepdogs and buy them coffee on occasion but don't like to hang with them for a long time.

    I am not a wolf.
    I have stopped several wolves in 25 yrs.
    I don't hurt sheep because my income requires them to live comfortably.

    I may be a shepard (Which is what my name means in German).
