Silent - welcome to CC
I seem to recall a similar request from someone else a ways back tho forget details.
I would say tho your main emphasis would simply need to be on protection of self in the light of regional/occupational risk factors. No mention need be made of ''shooting'', ''killing'' - or any highly emotive words.
Depending what feedback you get here initially, maybe draft something out for us to appraise.
I see you started a thread for this purpose - http://www.combatcarry.com/vbulletin...ead.php?t=9879 - so hope you'll get some more feedback.

Welcome to the board! Good luck with the essay. I would make sure to put in that you carry large amounts of cash, that makes you a target for victimization. Also say that you want to protect your family and your self.
As a recent college grad, I can tell you this, When you finish the essay, re-read it, have someone else read it, then re-read it.
