    A few months ago, Gila Hayes, of the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network (ACLDN) interviewed me about developing the right mindset to deal with violent crime. The transcript of the interview wound up being over 5,000 words. While we’re all stuck at home this might be a good time to brush up on this important topic. See

    Well worth the read. It reiterated to me that one needs to already know their response to a given situation.

    Good read and reminder that both mindset and skills are necessary and require preparation and practice.
