LIttle Fuzzy Sheeps
He starts by quoting LTC(ret) Cooper here. The good Colonel is calling for self-reliance and everyone to have the ability to defend himself or herself, by pointing out that even if you have bodyguards, they aren't going to be guarding your body all the time.
Here, Lawdog amplifies and clarifies what he meant.
Again, Lawdog makes the same point with new illustrations.
I can't say it much better than Lawdog. Cops and other 'professionals' only make up a certain percentage of the population and can only be in so many places as once. Have the capability to prevent the Socially Disadvantaged Youth to take advantage of you, or it will eventually happen.
This leads to amplification and clarification on precisely what it takes to defend yourself. Even if you don't wish to own a gun, a Combat Mindset and a masterlock beats someone who has a gun and expects to wave it like a magic wand and the problem will be solved.
With a combat-oriented mindset, you step away from being a sheep and towards being a sheep dog. And the name of the game is making it much more dangerous to be a wolf--extra dogs on duty help.
