    "In short, when crunch time comes, you are on your own..." --

    We called this a basic "truism" when I was young. We were taught to be personally responsible for our actions and safety as part of everyday life. With our societal moral decay and rising violence all around us, our awareness of our surroundings is paramount for our own well being. My daughter asked if I was paranoid and was that the reason I carry. The tried and true answer to that was a quote from someone--"I don't have to be paranoid, I carry a gun". CCW gives us "the last option", IF WE NEED IT, to protect our family and ourselves. Those that object to CCW probably have never been confronted with a potentially life threatening situation, otherwise they might not object so strenuously. 7 + 1 and a spare mag here...

    I just received a response from Michael Bowers in reference to the email I sent him. He says that he's gotten about 60 emails about his article and not a one of them was negative. He can't seem to figure that out.

    Good Job Guys.

    While in college I worked for an alarm company and I would often hear operators talking to cops in the field who refused to go out to homes if they did not have a permit even though we would tell them that the permit was being processed. Often times operator recorded messages would say: "You have called the LAPD if you are experiencing an emergency please wait and an emergency operator will be with as soon as possible." Now this would just keep playing until some picked up. That taught me you are your first line of defense. So Protect yourself.

    I wonder what Daly would do if His bodyguards left him and no one would agree to work for him.
