I was called up for jury duty in 2006. The defense (public defenders) were arguing self defense and asked the entire pool -- about 60 of us -- if we ever had to defend ourselves. At least half of the pool raised their hands. The next couple of hours were filled with stories about home invasions, car jackings, assaults, rapes, etc... It blew me away. I wasn't picked for the jury, the defendant got 20 to life, my wife and I got our CCWs ASAP, we bought a bunch of Glocks and a 12 guage and we shoot twice a week.
Rust and bureaucrats. Freedom and vigilance. Front sight and trigger. Kindness and firepower. Situational awareness and tolerance. Safety and concealment. Taxes and allegiance. Love of man and surgical marksmanship. Once a soldier, always a soldier.
