In any scenario; it is important to be aware of all that is around you as part of your 360 degree security plan.  You need to pay particular attention to anyone or anything which seems out of place.  Trust your instincts, do not ignore them as your first concern will be to stay alive.

You are your own first line of self defense.  Based on circumstances the course of action you choose needs to be carried through without hesitation.  When faced with violence, which cannot be avoided, you must have the will to act with ferocity and severity in order to save your life.

It is irrational in this day and age that a law abiding citizen would not carry some form of a weapon.  To choose not to carry a weapon intentionally renders yourself partially defenseless.  Violence is escalating and many attacks occur in fringe areas such as deserted parking lots, alleyways, public bathrooms, stairwells, ATM kiosks, etc., where no immediate help will be available.

The most reliable and powerful weapon will do you no good if a situation demands immediate, decisive action for your survival and you fail to take action.  While it is best to avoid violence; if you are in a life threatening situation you may need to react violently to save your life.  Never escalate a situation which could turn violent until you consider where it might lead.

You can take a look at some of my apocalyptic, zombie, or horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page by clicking on the book cover images.  If they interest you then I hope you will consider purchasing a copy.

Profiling can save your life.  Human beings as a survival mechanism constantly profile as a method to avoid danger and everyone does it to one extent or another.  As an example that was told to me follows; it will clearly illustrate my point.  You are in the lobby of a six floor apartment building late at night waiting for an elevator. There are two elevators and as you push the button waiting for an elevator to arrive you are looking forward to visiting your friend who lives on the fifth floor.  In the lobby both elevator doors open at the same time.  In one elevator there are 6 old ladies; in the other elevator there are 6 men all in their 20’s dressed in gang colors.  Which elevator are you going to get into?  Anyone with common sense will get into the elevator with the 6 old ladies.

Congratulations you profiler you; you have just profiled and in doing so you have probably saved yourself from being raped, robbed or murdered. Profiling is how human beings look to avoid danger and stay safe.  We all have gut instincts for a reason; so learn to use them wisely and stay safe.

Home invasion can conjur up all sorts of uncomfortable thoughts when one takes the time to think about it.  A home invasion can put the lives of you and your family at risk.  It is important to be aware of the following.

  • Thugs will try to gain access to your home using ruses such as “my car broke down may I use your phone.”  Do not grant them access.  Another ruse is impersonating law enforcement; again do not grant them access.  If they do not have proper and verifiable identification and a warrant they should not be allowed access to your home.
  • Allowing strangers access to your home in this day and age is reckless.  Don’t do it.
  • Crooks will stoop to any level to gain access; you need to be alert, situationally aware and ready.
  • Do not grant access to plumbers, electricians, etc., that you did not call.  Don’t allow workmen that you did call unattended access.
  • Closed circuit TV cameras work well and allow you to monitor your property.
  • Remember anyone can buy a fake utility sign or a fake landscaping sign.  If you did not specifically call them to come over and work on your property; do not allow them access to your home.
  • Remember home invasions don’t always begin at the front door.  You must protect the backdoor, windows and any other points of entrance and exit. 
  • Trust your gut instincts.  If something feels wrong then it most likely is wrong.
  • Be smart and stay safe.

Why is being properly armed and properly trained so important when it comes to your own safety and self defense?  I could list dozens of reasons but as a matter of practical application I will only list one.  According to crime statistics violent crime in the United States averages 100,000 incidents per month from July through September and 85,000 incidents per month from October through June.  With such a large number of violent crimes happening; and with thugs and criminals being more vicious then ever, it is prudent and imperative to be properly armed and properly trained as the first line of defense when dangerous criminals decide to attack.

When societal breakdowns occur; it is important to avoid the following people if you want to survive. Such survival situations include martial law,  tyrannical oppression, civil unrest, rioting, looting…………….well you get the idea.  So without further delay here are the people you need to avoid.

  • Anyone who says don’t bother being prepared and self reliant; the governement will take care of you no matter what happens.
  • Anyone with an entitlement mentality who thinks your stuff should be there stuff.
  • Anyone with a why should I work for what I want attitude when I can get welfare or other lifetime benefits for sitting back and doing nothing.
  • Anyone who says that there is nothing wrong with shredding the Constitution.
  • Anyone who supports disarming law abiding citizen’s.
  • Anyone who thinks martial law should be the law of the land.
  • Anyone who thinks being a violent criminal is okay and believes if I want something I’ll just take it by force.
  • Anyone without morals, values, honor, courage and dignity.

Avoid these types of people at all costs.  They are vultures who will think nothing of betraying you for the slightest reward or handout.

Violent crime is everywhere which is why the right of the people to keep and bear arms and the ability to defend yourself and your family is so very important.

The following may open some peoples eyes as to why you need to be able to defend yourself against thugs and violent predators.

  • Home invasions in the United States occur every 13 seconds.
  • 59% of burglaries occur during the day and 41% of burglaries occur at night.
  • Violent crime increased by 22% according to the Justice Department.
  • For the fourth year in a row Detroit tops the list of most dangerous U.S. cities followed by Washington DC.
  • Traditionally violent crime increases during the warmer months and decreases during the colder months.
  • What do burglars and violent criminals fear even more than the police? Encountering an armed homeowner during a break in.
  • Residential homes are where 60% of rapes occur.
  • Rapes in the United States occur every 2 minutes.
  • If you can make a 911 call the average response time for police depending on your area is between 11-24 minutes.  A lot of violent things can happen to a person during that period of time.

Now more than ever it is so important to legally own firearms and get proper training in their use especially as applies to self defense scenarios.  Do what you need to do to keep  you and your family safe and out of harms way.
