TG - the sheepdog metaphor is in the 'official literature' of the discussion of the responsibilities of the armed civilian from the gun world and some military psych types. The 'guardian' mentality comes from a similar discussion in the criminological literature. Civic Culture is from the European views on altruism in dangerous situations.

When folks throw out whether they would act in various ways and give reasons that have surface validity, I think it is better to understand what is below the blanket statements of how one says they would act.
