Colonel Grossman is an awesome individual with unique insight. I listened to his book "On Killing" and was astounded by his knowledge. Great teacher.

Considering the fact that the victim is the first one at the scene of a violent crime, I believe all law abiding citizens should be armed.

Very good read.
It isn't possible to predict when or where a wolf may strike. Certainly, there are some places where wolves are more common and the odds of having an encounter are higher than in other places. But the fact remains that no place is sacred to the wolf. So, even though we now live in a rural area with a low crime rate, there are criminals and there is crime.

So, I chose to be armed at alltimes, except for those times when it just isn't possible (like when flying) or worth the risk of prosecution (like at the courthouse).

The Coast Guard motto is Semper Paratus. I can't subscribe to that motto with my gun in the safe.
