Consider that a terrorist even…is not the same as a CCW self defense encounter with concerns over legality, disparity of force, or liability. The moment that it is a terrorist event, all other concerns are non-issues. And a man or men with masks and rifles classifies as that.
So who does that leave? Yep, you. So “put down the f*cking remote, get your ass in fighting shape” and learn how to tactically employ your weapons system. Even though it may be a “false flag” operation, somebody is going to end up dead.

Once again we heard of an active shooter…this time in Oregon. It is unclear yet if he was a Jihadist Terrorist, or just a Crazy Guy Terrorist. I wrote much of the following after the Charly Ebdo killings in France but they are still quite pertinent. Please read and take to heart.
From the police point of view: Generally speaking, police administrators do not like their people shooting anyone. I was chastised several times for this in the old days and the pressure on “shooters” is such that outside of special units, most guys and gals will tend to hold off on trigger pressing until the last possible moment. The libertarian types like this as much as the liberals, but it gets good men and women killed when events such as those in France unfold. Hesitation kills. A lesson any man that has gone in harm’s way knows by painful experience. Yet hesitation is often developed insidiously at the administrative level by those who’ve never looked into the darkness themselves. Those who wear a uniform, keep that in mind.
From the “Unannounced Fighter” perspective: Consider that you are a fighter. You are physically trained, and skilled. You are physically fit. While your coworkers swill beer watching men greater than they play sports, you are in the wright room, on the track, or at the range. You self-select as a fighter whether you wear a uniform or not and whether you are a soldier, a police officer, or a math teacher.
Today, EVERY MAN IS A COUNTER TERRORIST
So consider the following – if you can, be armed always. Yes…I know. But consider the implications. Of the ten dead civilians in France, how many would have willingly disobeyed unconscionable laws in order to stay alive? If it is difficult, learn to conceal the weapon better. At the very least have a knife with which to stab a terrorist to death.
And stabbing a man to death is an exercise in extreme violence. It is not some strip mall karate school exercise done with high school kids to get in shape. It is violent and sudden and what the body does in its final moments will shock you…maybe, if you haven’t gotten your mind right about such matters.
If you look like the King Of Comedy rather than the King Of the Cage, put down the f*cking remote and get your ass in fighting shape. The terrorist coming to kill you has taken his fitness seriously…do you think he is kidding?
If you are armed your life is easier. Resist the temptation to leave the real sized fighting gun at home and go forth with some “civilian friendly metro sexual” pistol. Anyone can carry a full sized fighting pistol with a little fore thought and care in dressing for the weapon.
Consider that a terrorist event like what we saw in France is not the same as a CCW self defense encounter with concerns over legality, disparity of force, or liability. The moment that it is a terrorist event, all other concerns are non-issues. And a man or men with masks and rifles classifies as that.
Learn to shoot accurately at distance. There were guys photographing and videotaping the assassination of the French police officer. A good practiced hand with a proper pistol might have killed one or both of those terrorists at the distance.
There will be no warnings, no posting and challenging, only recognition of threat and escalation of violence…or as I term it, “getting ahead” of the fight by shooting. Learn to shoot faces and necks at room distances. Yes, there is a chance you will be killed by the terrorist…but you will be killed anyway. And how do you want to look for the Crime Scene photos? Under a desk hiding with a terrified look on your face and a back full of 7.62×39 rounds, or a smiling corpse on a mountain of brass and dead terrorists? I pray if I am given that choice I will be the guy in the second image.
But….but, you might not be either one. You might survive and win if you are decisive enough, accurate enough, and violent enough.
Let us all be those things.
The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other Misfits. Although woven around the experiences and adventures of one man, this is also the story of the people who lived during the period of time in American history that an entire generation was betrayed It is the story of the dramatically changing times in which this personal odyssey took place. It is the story of the betrayal of an entire generation of Americans and particularly the 40% (of the military aged males) of that generation that fought the Vietnam war.
