Pax, I understand that. I've actually sided in your favor on that same argument as well, with a discussion in my personal life. To someone.
That still doesn't answer it for me. Why does the majority of people like us, always think if we don't get navy seal style training, our techniques are inadequate against criminals? They're countless cases of that not being true. And average joes taking them on.
I understand that they're on the offensive and we're on the defensive. The hunted if you will.
I think people who carry understand and should get a little more credit than they do. I appreciate a regular citizen that carries.
The way they're spoken off is like they're more liable to shoot themselves or something.
I'm not saying they're immaculate. Obviously that training where you pay money is better than non. But let's me realistic. They're not perfectly defenseless.
