After all, you know, just a little run to the store, you don't need all that stuff.

    Wrong. About 6 blocks west of Austin's, and directly on the way we took to I-35, is a Subway in a little strip mall where the FBI had a running gun battle in broad daylight a little over a month ago.

    Don't be making a face at me, girl.

    It takes only seconds to call the police, waiting for them to arrive could take the rest of your life...

    The fact that the world always has been a dangerous place (with the escalation in the type of violence despite overall decline in incidents) is a very uncomfortable notion for many, many people; so uncomfortable, in fact, that many would rather live in denial. Unfortunately, they also vote..............

    Good essay!

    Good Stuff, Sgt T!

    "To do less would mean that you are missing many of the worlds great wonders." <-- SO true

    I don't want to live my life timidly wondering what could happen to me, or naively thinking that nothing will. I want to be in control of my well being (as much as anyone possibly could be). It's difficult to make people understand that even though it comes with so much responsibility, and so much effort on our part, being an armed citizen is actually freeing!

    It's like being a Christian. You are held to a higher standard. You are required to take the high road and you demand it of yourself. You have to make decisions that most wouldn't make, and you're required to refrain from things that most wouldn't refrain from. You condition yourself to certain behaviors and outlooks. It's a lot of work. But you go to bed every night with a clear conscience. You know that you're doing the right thing, and that no matter what you're always safe. And in the end, you're going to heaven (or staying on earth, or keeping a family member, friend, or even someone you don't know alive to see another day). And just like Christian's were for thousands of years, we are persecuted, but we hold on because we know that we are standing for something greater than ourselves.

    So, great point Sgt T. Really inspiring!
