    A LEO take on self-defense

    "Buy a gun. Get a bat. Own some weapon and have enough skill to use it to save your own life and the lives of your family members. DO NOT RELY ON THE POLICE TO SAVE YOUR LIFE FOR YOU."

    Good article. It would be nice if it got distribution to newspapers and/or a story on cable news.

    911 and feel good about the system that those you elected created to protect you, or

    1911 but you must train and take on responsibility for your self

    .......
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

    Kinda funny...or maybe sad...a police officer in CA telling folks to carry a gun. They sure don't make it easy to do that legally over in granola-land. Puts citizens in a tough spot, doesn't it? I wonder if "Officer Smith" would bust old granny for carrying an "illegal" gun to defend herself...? Or maybe she should use a bat instead?
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    He writes what we on the forum already agree upon.
    "Was there no end to the conspiracy of irrational prejudice against Red Ryder and his peacemaker?"

    I used to say the same thing to people all the time. The police show up and clean up the mess. I once responded to a burglary in progress and was about 15 minutes away. That is a LONG time to wait for help. I was haulin' the mail to get there too. Luckily, the homeowner scared the guy off with a rifle. Ultimately, your safety is your responsibility. Unless you have a pocket-sized cop on you, you had better know how to defend yourself.

    While we understandably push for concealed carry as an SD tool, we have often lost sight of the horrifically bad
    knife laws and even laws against pepper, which can make effective SD near to impossible if obeyed.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    Everyone, and I mean everyone should print a copy of this message for future reference, use. This should be show to any jury if you are taken to court as a result of using your weapon to protect yourself.

    The ignorance of some people in this world is astonishing. And he is right, we have (well not those of us exercising our rights and our muscles) gotten soft, as a society. I wont go philosophical, but it is a good blog

    We as society have become reliant on "police". It kind of like flying on a plane we have become so dependent on someone saving us that we feel safe.
