1 in 30 adults in the US are a victim of a violent encounter.
The average response time by law enforcement for a priority one call is 11 minutes.  What are you going to do in those 11 minutes?

Keep what is important safe and secure. WHERE ever you are. WHEN ever the time.  WHAT ever the circumstances. Because if it is important, it needs to be protected and you can’t always count on someone else to do it for you. 

“Blessed be God, my Rock who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle”

Psalm 144:1 

“Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for one who is responsible for the lives of others. The defense of the common good requires that an unjust aggressor be rendered unable to cause harm. For this reason, those who legitimately hold authority also have the right to use arms to repel aggressors against the civil community entrusted to their responsibility.”
