Unpleasant But Important Advice

     This emission at Gab struck me powerfully:

     @BigCountryExpat A quick followup to your recent article that mentioned packing heat even in your own house your SOP. I typically have a long gun within reach inside, but even when I’m just running outside to the shop to bring something in that will require two hands, I toss a hand gun in a pocket or tuck it into my pants.

     I would once again recommend that everyone makes this a habit before it becomes a necessity. Well, I guess it is a necessity depending on which hell-hole is closest to your abode. My current living situation sees more 4 legged predators, but I did have to run off a lone wanderer who decided to pitch a tarp on my property last year which reinforced that you never can anticipate when you’re actually going to need either to start blasting or at least threaten to.

     Most Americans don’t go about the day armed, or even within relatively convenient reach of a weapon. Yet consider the nation’s current state:

  • Predators have taken over the streets of our cities;
  • Reports of violence outside the cities have been increasing;
  • The agitation for “reparations” to American blacks is peaking;
  • Major corporations are deferring to the BLM agenda, one after another;
  • Major figures, both in politics and the media, have defended all the above.

     Carrying a weapon suggests that the need for one might arise at any moment. The above says that such a time is upon us. Indeed, in this era, not to have a weapon to hand is the sheerest lunacy. The predators are openly emboldened — and not just the ones swarming in our cities. Though few Americans ever thought they’d see the day when answering the doorbell is an act of courage, nevertheless that day is here.

     Don’t expect the police to protect you. The police have been neutered in too many places, by orders from “higher authority.” In a shocking number of other places, the police have demonstrated by their behavior that they’re on the predators’ side.

     The Left is at the root of it all. In their quest for total control over every aspect of American life, Leftists throughout these United States have suspended all the rules of our society. There is no longer a presumption of public civility, much less of public order. At a time when peaceable bystanders are being physically assaulted for their race, or for being maskless in a public place, or for daring to attend a free-speech rally, the presumption should be that we are not safe. Not even within our own homes.

     I can find no indications that a return to the status quo ante is in prospect any time soon. We must expect to be latently in danger at all times. Be armed – be vigilant – and beware.

    As a retired copper of over 40 yrs from a major city (Chitcago) let me tell you I wouldn’t even take the garbage out without being armed. This sh*t started happening in the late 70’s,protect yourself and your family noone else can/will.

    Yep, I am now ALWAYS armed.

    Even in my house. It’s far too short a distance from the street to my front door…

    I am lucky in that I live in Oklahoma City, a red city in a Red State. Still, the way things are going, I never, ever leave my apartment without open carrying a pistol and extra magazine—not even to check the mail. There is a loaded and charged pistol in every room, and a loaded rifle where I sleep. When I ride a bicycle I am armed. When I hike and backpack I am armed. When I go for a walk I am armed. When I go shopping I am armed. When I go to Mass I am armed. When I answer the door I am armed.

    In this day and in this age a man cannot afford to relax his guard. He cannot afford to be careless.

    This is not how I want to live. This is how I have to live.

    All day/night, everyday, with few exceptions. Biggest exception is when I have to go up to MA, where I can only legally carry a blade. I can’t carry on duty at work, because given my profession that would actually be more dangerous, but it is locked up in my vehicle outside. At these times, I practice situational awareness and stay away from stupid people doing stupid things in stupid places.

    I carry any time I leave the house, even in church, with the knowledge of the pastors. There are way too many nutburgers running around loose, even here in the woods.  The Chief of Police here was investigating an attempted shoplifting and car theft around the local Walmart.  The perp fired at the police car, hitting the chief 3 times, once in the arm, once in the leg, once in the chest.  He was wearing his bullet proof vest, otherwise he’d be dead.  He fired two shots at the perp, wounding him severely, though not killing him.  Turns out the perp was a convicted felon.  How’d he get the gun, one wonders.  Bad stuff can happen anywhere.

    Predators are everywhere, and the great majority enabled for the most part by our feral & state gummints and their asinine policies. And here we are, finding ourselves right back in the times of the Wild West as portrayed in movies, where everyone was armed, not that you were a bad guy, but to signal bad guys to watch their manners, they may just end up on the losing side of the equation….
