"One reason sexual misconduct cases may occur without the same outcry as that against gun violence is the public's unwillingness to recognize women as victims of police misconduct in the first place."

Chris Kyle and the Punisher logo. 

I wanted these two links to exist in the same post. 

The first link, an interesting look at the increasing use of the Punisher skull symbol from warfighters, as seen by the anti-war artist who created it:

The second link, another view on Kyle, the most likely reason this logo persists today in the deserts of the middle east; which is to say the ongoing and continuously exponential result of a one-man special operations psych war. (The tactic works, I make no argument about that.)

The creator of The Punisher says he is 'flabbergasted' by the appropriation of his image by Iraqi fighters

Self-Defense in the News  - 
 
The victim said his gun was in his car, and that he chose not to get it. He was being punched by multiple attackers while his baby, in his carseat, was just a few feet away. His only choice in this was believing he could get to his firearm if he needed it. He is fooling himself. 

I'm not here to point out whether or not he would have been justified to shoot in this instance, but I am here to point out that if you don't have a gun physically on your person, and that you actually think you can get it in time to fend off criminal violent acts, well, you're as wrong as breast cancer.

You are wrong, and what's even worse then knowing you yourself are wrong about this? Is that you can be dead wrong about it, say, tomorrow. 

If you can get in your car, you have already initiated escape. Any return to the scene of the instigation by criminal aggressors would yield you an aggravated assault charge, or murder. It's happened in Memphis before, it will happen again. Once it was over a parking space at a Panera Bread in Cordova. Two start yelling at each other, old guy gets in his car, returns with pistol, shoots young drunk dude, and old guy justifiably gets murder and decades in jail. 

Don't do stupid things with stupid people at stupid times in stupid places. Carry your gun. If it's "in your car" it might as well be on mars when the dozen of attackers get you on the ground for the head-stomps. EDIT: for clarity, my "maybe not the best decisions" mentioning is of this good samaritan's words to this crowd of teenagers when he exited the store with the little old lady. Personally, I don't think initiating communicating with a crowd like this and asking to draw their attention is wise. That's all I'm saying about "stupid things in stupid places."

Luckily, the kids negotiating with this guy's life decided mercy this day. 

Carry your gun. Don't depend on the mercy of evil people.

He should have shot one of them and the rest would have ran like roaches.

Holy Carp, our Eldritch Knight almost just got hit so hard by a Yochlol that he would have to had to play a bard as his next character!

Incredible quote by +Scott Harrison. I can't wait to train with you again good sir. 

"If we hold ourselves to the Lowest Common Denominator Theory, where learning is structured around individuals who instructors perceive as incapable of being taught, then we remain COMMON and so does the student. The journey you are about to embark on will be absolutely, positively, inherently AND necessarily dangerous. "
Scott has served as a sworn Deputy Sheriff and 9-1-1 Emergency Dispatcher.  However, it was as a student that he discovered his true passion of teaching others

If I hold the door for my wife, but check out her ass when she walks by, is that business or kindness? I get confused.

Very interesting.
 
This is interesting.... frankly i was expecting to see parity or even men outlasting women once the early 20s were survived. 
Browse and create Life Expectancy graphs. Compare by current age visualizing current age, # alive out of 100,000 born, and # alive out of 100,000 born (male).

It's not the odds. It's the stakes.
Introduction
"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good Blaster at your side, kid."

I'm just a regular guy I guess. The kind of regular guy who likes non-aggressive people following the non-aggressive axiom.

Because of this, you and I may be different.

This difference will literally be how we may see violence as, or as not, a moral premise. 

For the last three years, I have changed my life because of this. 

I feel so strongly about it that I have made it my personal responsibility to solve two types of problems that violence, or the mere threat of violence causes, which are:
  1. Not being a victim of violence by empowering people to defend themselves by the most technologically advanced means possible, and by
  2. Directly aiding those who have been the victims of violence by working as an emergency medical professional

So at its heart, if we are different in this way, I see our views on using force as the difference and I don't know if any discussions can happen by either of us forgoing this moral premise that perhaps only I bare. 

<Obama> But let me be clear </Obama> , I don't mean this to say that you are explicitly ok with violence, far from it, but I do believe if you just considered the "reason or force" axiom, that everything above it from a moral construct just falls apart. You may even come to realize the violence you participate in every day. 

Still here? 

I love analog gaming, defensive art pursuits, reading Sci-Fi and Fantasy, though lately it's been all non-fiction as I've found the psychology of stress/combat fascinating and helpful. 

Having been on G+ for a bit of time, I find that I post a lot of firearm self-defense related thoughts. If you'd like to be a part of that ramble, please let me know directly so I can add you to those circles, if by reading your own profile this reciprocal interest doesn't immediately stand out to me. Please include me in any self-defense pursuits you may have, and I do mean any form of martial arts, weapons involvement or not.

I work for one of the most prestigious civilian firearm training facilities in the United States. Know that all my postings are of my own, and not representative of my employer. Unless of course you are doing something unsafe, then by all means I will call you out on it. #drypractice I mean today. No, I'm not joking.

As of November, our range has had 62 students in violent encounters, all of which have been won by our students. If you have heard of a better record for student involved civilian violent encounters, I beg you to let me know. I'd like to train at your place too.  

I like engineering and science, and have the goals of doing these disciplines with greater wisdom. Please share with me anything along those lines. :)
