Forget all that liberal/progressive nonsense that profiling is wrong.  Profiling can save your life and should be used as an effective situational awareness tool.  Profiling is not a bad thing; in fact it is ingrained into the human species as part of our instinctive genetic makeup.  

If you doubt this let’s consider the following example.  You are going to visit a friend in an apartment building late at night.  While waiting in the lobby you push the button for the two elevators that are there; and they both come down at the same time.  When the doors open; in one elevator are six old ladies, none of whom get off the elevator, who are smiling and well mannered.  In the second elevator are six men dressed in gang colors who also do not get off the elevator, and they are covered with tatoos and look really pissed at the world.  Which elevator are you going to get into?

The answer is obvious; you are going to get into the elevator with the old ladies.  Congratulations; profiling has just potentially saved you from being raped, robbed,  assaulted,  beaten, or killed.  Political correctness is pure nonsense and anyone who believes in the notion of political correctness is free to get on the other elevator with the gang members and take their chances.

It is imperative; and I stress imperative that folks understand that violent crime has the potential to strike anyone at anytime.  Knowing this it becomes important to be situationally aware of who and what is around you and to have a plan to deal with potentially dangerous situations if they develop. Many criminals look for victims of opportunity; which means people who are not paying attention to where they are, what they are doing, and who appear weak and vulnerable.  So let’s talk about some things you need to be particularly aware of.

  • Avoid dangerous places which means don’t go to bad parts of the city or to drug and crime infested areas.
  • Don’t go to desolate, out of the way ATM’s alone and don’t go up and down stairwells alone in places like parking garages.
  • Don’t flash lots of cash, or expensive rings, or watches in public places.
  • Remember there are bad people out there who only see you as an obstacle to getting what they want.  They will think nothing of hurting, raping, or killing you to achieve their objectives.
  • Always keep your fully charged cell phone handy, keep your car doors locked when driving, and when parked, and have your self defense weapons accessible.
  • Know where your children are going, the routes they are taking, and when they are leaving and when they should be back.
  • Know who your chidren’s friends are and make sure you have their phone numbers in case you need to reach them.
  • Train properly with your self defense weapons of choice such as pepper spray, hand to hand fighting skills, knife, gun, etc.
  • Make yourself a hard target; which means make yourself appear to be someone who will be too difficult to rob, rape, or assault.  Criminals want easy targets; if you appear to be a hard target they will pass you by in search of easier prey.

I am a proud conservative, a loving family man and a weapons owner.  It is my right as a law abiding citizen to legally purchase and own firearms and as I have a permit to carry concealed for self protection and family protection; it is my right to do that as well.  I am the voice of most Americans who feel exactly the same way about their right to keep and bear arms.  So to you anti-gunners; stop your whining, sniveling and groveling and get with the values and freedoms that are protected and should be respected under the Constitution.
