America won a huge victory on Nov 8 2016. The founding principles of the United States of America won a victory over the corrupt, the bullies, and the members of the victim state. Now that we have won it is time to start acting like winners.
Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question about being armed in a place that does not want you to be armed. The professor has worked in many “non-permissive” environments and has some experience with being armed when you “can’t” be armed.

During a recent outing to an indoor shooting range I encountered a fellow shooter and the subject turned to concealed carry and using a handgun for personal defense. My practice sessions tend to be far from the normal stand and shoot affair and after observing me for a while the gentleman asked where I learned to shoot and what I did for a living.
I mentioned that I regularly taught courses at the range in question and he remarked that he indeed had a “concealed carry license” though he never carried. “I got it just in case” was his remark. He went on to comment that “I’m not trigger-happy” and “I don’t want to have to hurt anyone.” My comment was simply that “Someone out there wants to hurt you. You just haven’t met them yet.”
While the casual reader might think that a callous or even snide remark on my part, the fact of the matter is that from practical stand point my comment was right on the money. Right now, at the very moment you are reading these words there are people on planet Earth who would happily kill you. The only reason that they haven’t done so is because you are separated by great distance and they cannot get you in their sights.
I spent 17 years as an Ohio State Certified Peace Officer. During my time spent with a badge I frequently encountered criminals, bad guys who I had previously arrested, in the aisles of the local grocery or big box store. My wife learned early on in our marriage that if I pointed someone out during a shopping trip we needed to move to another area of the store. The last thing I wanted to do was encounter some maggot I’d arrested a month earlier while my family was present.
For the naive in the audience; no, the bad guys don’t go to jail and stay there after the police catch and arrest them. Vermin arrested for vicious felonies will bail out of jail and spend months on the street before ever going to trial. Even if they are convicted, our broken justice system sees them back on the street much sooner than most citizens would imagine. Actual time served is between 50 and 60 percent of the time sentenced.
What’s my point in all this? It simple, every time you leave your home and go out in public you are brushing elbows with felons. You just don’t know it.
