    I think this was originally saved by one of the mods a few YEARS ago here as a "sticky," for recommended reading by new members.

    A great article but unlike the herd of sheep, the vast majority of people have trouble knowing which are the wolves and which are the sheepdogs. Sometimes those who we think are the sheepdogs are actually the wolves and too many who straddle that line become policemen. There are definitely those who think that it can't happen to them and want to ban both the wolves and the sheepdogs, unfortunately the wolves will never be banned. And then there are the sheepdogs who think that they are the only one and all others are either sheep or wolves.

    It has become an article much read .. often I think labelled a parable.

    It and other such, along with various RKBA articles can be found on one of my sites - so anyone wanting to locate some of these feel free to check it out. Just hover on the ''articles'' menu link and it should drop down with a choice of many.

    I read a condensed version of that to my concealed carry students when we are starting the mindset portion of the class. It gets their brain juices going for what we are just about ready to jump in to. It's a GREAT article!

    Excellent article and it should be read by more people.
    As far as I am concerned, on a personal level, I don't know if I would be a sheepdog. I do carry, I do practice regularly and I have long ago made the conscious decision to never be a victim nor allow any of my family to be victims. My problem comes in with the idea of being there for everyone else. I'm not a cop. I would not want a cops job, nor could I do a cops job. (Understand, two of my close friends are full time cops, I have a fair understanding of what they do and put up with.) I would have great trepidation, entering into a violent confrontation that did not affect me directly. As so well noted by previous posts, not knowing all the particulars about any violent encounter may wind you up in jail and or being the bad guy if you mis-read the situation. I suppose that each situation must be judged separately and on it's own particular conditions. Deadly force is forever and if I make a mistake so is the punishment (payment). Emotions can be high and so are the stakes.
