Your Candle Only Has Two Ends
In any tight-knit organization, attitudes are contagious, and that goes double for lousy ones. It’s common for the word of hard-chargers attracted to “tactical” work to brag about the amount of time they put in, for example the number of hours worked, and treat it as a benchmark. But the more the work load piles up, the more easily frustrated you get, and that can feed the bad attitude spiral. Listen in as we talk about ways to reduce work-related fatigue and maintain a healthy work/life balance…tactically.
Most Danger Doesn’t Come from Strangers
The statistical fact of the matter is that most victimization comes from people who look like us and are already in our social circles. That’s extra true about sex crimes, and super extra true about sex crimes against children. Tune in as we discuss teaching ourselves, loved ones, and especially our kids about understanding social norms, establishing boundaries, and the importance of informing someone in authority.
I read your piece in the NOV/DEC 2019 issue of CONCEALED CARRY MAGAZINE. Couldn’t agree with you more on all of the points that you made on both sides of the argument. I was born in NYC, of immigrant Cuban parents who were fleeing Communism, and treasure my GOD given rights under the US Constitution. My parents had personal stories of the actions of a tyrannical government!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
As a life-long NJ resident and lawful gun owner since 1990, I have long-since given up on the possibility that I would ever be granted a NJ concealed carry permit.
Look forward to the day when I escape this progressive, liberal state and move to a state that respects gun rights & the 2nd Amendment!!
I enjoyed your article in volume 17, issue 4. The points you made were well thought out. I would like to see an article that us in the gun community could actually study. Actual statistics of mass shootings and every day shootings that occure and all the laws that already don’t stop these tragic events. It would be nice to have all that information in my head the next time someone says we need more gun control.
