Along with some news and expectations about the Ferguson grand jury decision and its fallout, Pat puts forward an argument against open carry demonstrations while submitting the 4 Rules of Open Carry. Finally, Pat accepts a 7-day, 24/7 Open Carry Challenge.
NOTE: At some point in this broadcast, I use the term “assault rifle.” Regrettably, it seems that the media’s use of this redundant and unnecessary phrase has even forced its way into my vocabulary. To be clear: any object (or word) can be used to “assault” someone. My apologies for this mistake!
This broadcast contains several “Big Ideas”: Pat introduces the ‘Handgun Acclimation’ concept and discusses the way our skin, muscles, and nerves adjust to the discomfort of a concealed handgun (and how to ‘hack’ this process to work toward comfortably carrying a BIGGER handgun if you so desire). He then moves into the Defensive Carry vs. Offensive Carry Concept. Finally, he guides the Forward Operator through the soul-searching necessary to decide which sort of armed American they want to become: Defensive or Offensive.
In this broadcast, Pat discusses the importance of separating “guns as hobbies” and “guns as tools” in our minds, and then puts forward a 4-Question method of ensuring a GOOD CHOICE in a defensive handgun.
We all know the institution of concealed carry has far-reaching benefits regarding the safety of our communities. But are you aware of the individual benefits in overall wellness that you’ll experience simply by carrying your gun regularly?
