May 9: CWP Course.
This is the Saturday before Mother’s Day.
I love stories like this.
Best quote: “Anyone who doesn’t arm themselves is asking for trouble.”
It also shows how the criminal waited around looking to victimize this particular 84 year old man, probably thinking he’d be easy prey, but unaware that his intended victim carries a pistol.
Like I say in my CWP class: “When dealing with the police, just go with the flow. If you don’t agree with what they are doing, have your lawyer sort it out later.”
Come to the Force on Force training in April to experience some of this yourself. Fortunately, we don’t have to deal with belligerent, uncooperative suspects and take them into custody as part of our job. Our job is to go home to our families – preferably unharmed – with the minimum of fuss, but making good decisions under stress really should be practiced so you can make better decisions during a real situation.
I just checked CNN to see if the perpetrators of yesterday’s attack had been caught yet. I saw this bit of video of some despicable CNN twerp breathlessly reporting on the lack of news from France: http://www.cnn.com/videos/world/2015/01/08/tsr-vo-sciutto-photo-paris-attack.cnn
Just listen to the words he uses:
“Bloodshed” instead of terrorist attack
“Gunmen” instead of terrorists
“Killed” instead of murdered
“Executing” instead of murdering
“High caliber weapons” That’s just an idiotic phrase used by journalists who don’t know a Glock from a Hi-Point.
His word choice reveals his worldview that guns are bad, and probably caused this outrage, and the terrorists are really just misunderstood freedom fighters, and he is deliberately trying to use this incident to push for more gun control here in the US by conflating guns with senseless violence against innocents. Well, France has GREAT gun control. Some cops involved in the incident did not even carry guns. And look at where that got them.

Then ask yourself this question: “Would I have been ready if this had happened outside of MY office, car or home?”
And if the answer is “No”, then ask yourself: “What am I going to do about it?”
