NJ: How does fear play into personal protection?

I think many people will have difficulty with this question, but as I said before you may have to take a life to protect a life. Would you give your own life to save your child’s, and if you would, why would you not be willing to take another life from someone who was trying take theirs? There is no fairness in this game, there is no negotiation; there is survival of the fittest. Or survival of those who are willing to take a stand and fight. Believe me, the bad guys know when you are serious, and they fear an armed citizen protecting that which they love, versus a uniformed officer.

Fear is a good thing; it has kept us alive as a species for all these years. What has happened is we have tried to hide it or ignore it or turn to other people to manage it. You will have to confront your fear—what scares you. Your child growing up without you because you never made the choice to take a stand and be prepared? Or is it something more primal, like taking another life. You may have to take a life to protect life, so consider that.
