We’re seeing this with vastly-increasing frequency: representatives of law enforcement going public with their declarations that police are becoming less capable of genuinely protecting the citizens of the communities they serve, as well as their overt assessments that citizens are largely on their own when it comes to staying safe from the criminal element.
Jamie McBride, president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, the labor union for LAPD officers, recently told CBS2’s Randy Paige that, “The citizens need to know they need to be able to protect themselves because if they call 911, we can’t guarantee we’re going to get there in time to help you.” According to McBride, on a recent workday morning, the West LA division had just three patrol cars assigned, which ultimately meant just two cars to protect over 200,000 people living in a 65-square mile radius – wow!
This problem seems to be getting worse in a lot of areas of the country, and yet far too many politicians still demand that you rely entirely on government law enforcement resources for your protection, and continue to acquiesce to efforts that further erode your rights to keep and bear arms.
So it is really on you to stay safe, as well as to keep your family safe. However, if you are going to do that, you need to be ready…and being ready is going to be as much, or more, about your mental readiness as your physical readiness. To that end, I recommend the terrific book Counter Violence, a highly-informative, 138-page physical book that deals largely with the subject of mindset as it pertains to violent encounters. From that perspective it is a thorough work, and one that belongs on the shelf of anyone who seeks to become completely prepared to defend him/herself, as well as those innocent parties nearby, from the kind of violent attacks that have become an all-too-regular presence in our communities, across the country, and around the world nowadays.
The author of Counter Violence is E.J. Owens, the founder and president of Legally Concealed. Owens’ specialty as an instructor is in the area of concealed carry and home defense scenarios. His background is impressive, and includes service as a U.S. Army infantry officer, as well as CQB (close quarters battle) instructor and hand-to-hand combat instructor with the military.
