Look at the image above. A harsh image filled with blood and the dead. It has been all over the news and we know all about the “who, why, and how”. We also know that it is only a matter of time before we have a similar party here in the USA. In fact, president is giving them a free airplane ride – some 10,000 of them – and a place to live right in your town.
Recently Shepard Smith mentioned that we could not “change who we are” with regards to these people and with reference to welcoming them and giving them refuge. Well Shepard, I think it is high time we change who we are before it kills us.
1). The authorities cannot really protect you. Not because they are inept, but simply because of the sheer numbers involved and because it is impossible to know a man or small group’s intentions if they do not share it.
2). You have a group of people, united by a religious-political ideology, that stands in complete opposition to any modernity, or liberty, and that has proven its adherents can kill easily and without remorse, that has openly said they hate you and plan to kill you. I know the president thinks they are kidding, but do you think they are kidding?
4). At the end of the discussion, it might be you who is there at ground zero. Probably by happenstance. It is simple. If you are armed, you have a chance. If you are not armed, not so much. So I want to discuss the ethos of this type of shooting. Hopefully to get our collective minds right about this ASAP. Today may be your day.
First off, I can’t emphasize enough that THIS IS NOT A DEFENSIVE SHOOTING. This is premeditated, proactive killing of a terrorist, hopefully by surprise and unannounced, and preferably in the back of the head.
In reactive situations your first priority is not getting shot, with shooting the adversary as a secondary concern. This involves moving dynamically. Drawing and shooting while doing so. Less thought to precision accuracy or to after event liability, and more focus on “I AM NOT GOING TO DIE HERE…SHIT!!!!”
It may be that way, but it may not be if you have not been directly engaged by the terrorists. In that case what we are referring to is vastly different.
Proactive situations have two aspects. Marksmanship and the will to kill. Will you be excited? Sure but it won’t be the reactive-terrified “defense outside the home situation that 99% of US gun training focuses on. If you have hunted…or better, poached, you understand the concept. Position yourself so you have the advantage. Don’t allow the animal to see you. Stillness with tension selectively…like a spring. Weapon is up…sights aligned…steady…steady…trigger.
So…leave the sissy pocket pistol at home and carry a full size fighting pistol with several magazines. Ignore the sign that says you shouldn’t carry it. Live your life and enjoy it…but know this – there are people out there who hate you and will do their best to kill you and anyone with you simply because you are an American or a Christian. The best defense is not defense, it is a brutal and violent counter attack. If you take a defensive attitude into this fight, you will fail and you will die.
The Essence of Liberty Volume III: Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic. This is the volume that pulls it all together. With reference to Hans-Hermann Hoppe’s description of Murray Rothbard’s work, it is a “unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.” Available in both paperback and Kindle versions.
