If I Was A Bank Teller...

...and she walked in to rob the bank and then stuck that Thompson right in my face, I'd probably never see the gun or realize the bank was being robbed.

A Bit Of My Philosophical Thought On Being Armed For Self Defense

With life being as cheap as it is, that is YOUR life being seen as cheap in the eyes of others who would just as soon kill you as look at you, I have developed a simple philosophy.

Whenever you can go anywhere legally armed, you should do so; and you should know how to defend yourself with whatever primary arms you chose to carry. If you can avoid going to places wherein you cannot be legally armed, avoid them; that is unless you are willing to be illegally armed and face the consequences if any. Of course, if you choose to go unarmed, you must also be willing to face the consequences of that.

I am not advocating that you illegally arm yourself, that decision is completely you own to make. However, I will say that the consequences of not being able to effectively defend yourself or your loved ones against deadly force, illegally used by someone against you, might wind up being more dire than being apprehended for being illegally armed should you take action against someone trying to kill you. That last is just something to think about as we are faced with events like those described in the articles at the following links:

There are as many other similar situations as you can to find by doing an intensive search online. Then there are the more mundane, at least to the media, cases of robberies, assaults, rapes, murders and other violent crimes that occur each and every day in which the victims are usually unarmed. I am a firm believer in fighting back when and if I can do so, to protect my life and the lives of my loved ones, so I go armed whenever and wherever I legally can do so. My personal philosophy is for me to go armed, stay alert, and avoid trouble if I can avoid it. Yet, if it comes to me and or my loved ones being imminently threatened with loss of life or serious bodily injury without a reasonable chance for us to escape unharmed  then I will take decisive self defense action up to and including the use of deadly force. In other words, I will fight as if my life or the lives of my loved ones, depends on it. 

By the way, the time to start considering and preparing to defend yourself is now, hopefully well before you ever are involved in any such potentially life threatening situations.

All the best,
