Random Musings for the Armed Citizen

 

With “Permitless” Carry taking effect in my home state of Texas September 1st  I had some thoughts:

One of the things I learned very early on when I started carrying a gun for self-defense was that I needed to adpot a mentality of Avoidance, Deterrence and De-Escalation if I wanted to stay vertical and out of prison.

  • Avoid Dangerous places and Stupid People

  • Deter Criminal Behavior with Acute and Constant Situational Awareness

  • De-Escalate heated situations with an apology and submissive behavior (Tuck your Ego and Temper In. Be the bigger man and Squash a Verbal altercations with an apology and move on.)

 

Most all of you know I am NOT a fan of Open Carry.

If you are going to carry a gun for self-defense, go concealed or don’t go at all.

The reasoning is simple: SURPRISE is one of the biggest advanatges the armed citizen has against a criminal, especially now in Texas when the odds are very high that every person that a criminal comes into contact with MAY BE armed!

Once the criminal knows a gun is involved it changes things dramatically.

It can work FOR the armed citizen (the deterrence factor) or it can work AGAINST them.

Just remember: EVERY altercation you are going to be involved in there will be a GUN present, YOURS!

For this reason I am a Firm believer in the armed citizen getting solid Weapon Retention Training.

Going along with the Concealment MO, you might re-consider your blade carry as well.

A pocket Clip folder is handy but it is also noticeable.

Instead, go for a horizontal fixed blade belt carry.

Lot of great options out there like the Cinch Pick.

Something to chew on.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous.

Black Maniac Get’s Put Down with some FINE Pistol Work

This Black Maniac POS set his house on fire, then drove off and shot 2 EMT’s, one of them fatally then drove back to his house and shot 2 fireman and a civilian trying to put out the flames. (Actions starts around 1:28)

Killed with some damn fine pistol work by the Cop (2 head shots from what looks like 40+ yards? Excellent Shooting. Could you do that when it counted? If not get to TRAINING NOW!)

This is the kind of shit the news does not tell you about because it screws up their “White Supremacist are the Real problem” Fake Narrative.

Don’t buy the BS Folks.

It’s a War Zone out there.

Prepare Accordingly.

Chaos

What did you think was gonna happen assholes? 😅

You voted yourself into this Bullshit.

You are NOT voting yourself Out of it.

Nobody is Coming to Save You. You are on your Own. 🖕

“‘Anarcho-tyranny’ is a concept, where the state is more interested in controlling citizens, so that citizens do not oppose the overbearing political class (tyranny), rather than controlling real criminals (which might bring about peace and prosperity, and worst of all, dignity).

‘Laws’ are therefore enforced only selectively, depending on what is perceived to be beneficial for the ‘ruling elite.’”  (Sam Francis)

VBCs (at long last) may be wakening!

Representatives of the LAPD were recently summoned to a public forum in one of the City’s high-rent districts.

Citizens there were fearful and frantically expressed alarm at the gigantic spike in violent crime and widespread general lawlessness .

They demanded that police “Do something!”

As they’ve had to do so many times before, police command-staff officers in attendance then reluctantly informed these naive citizens that nothing could be done, because these same citizens had voted this tragedy upon themselves!

“You voted for this Marxist sleaze. What did you think would happen?”

Figuring all this out isn’t difficult, assuming you have at least a couple of working synapses and are willing to face reality, instead of living in some make-believe world!

Marxists are criminals, by definition!  Leftist politics does not attract honorable people.

When elected/appointed, their only interest is the seizure and consolidation of absolute power, and extermination (literal) of all opposition. They sincerely believe that the rest of us exist only to serve them!

Their MO is to shamelessly use private-sector thugs to violently enforce their leftist political agenda upon the rest of us, much as Stalin did in harassing (eventually murdering) pesky dissidents and political opponents, and as Mudero is currently doing in Venezuela.

Accordingly, violent criminals are enthusiastically doing Marxists’ dirty-work for them, here and now! This is precisely why Democrat politicians won’t allow their precious criminals to be arrested, nor prosecuted, nor incarcerated.

Resulting violent chaos is what we’re seeing in CA, NY, IL and other Marxist enclaves.

Why is anyone surprised?

Combative Basics: Flanking

Random street crime and violence is on the up-tick.

Be prepared to deal with it.
