Prepared, Not Paranoid

Prepared, Not Paranoid

We have received many, many comments on AmericanRifleman.org since implementing comments on article, blogs and videos. Some have been stimulating, some have been questionable and some have made us rethink ideas that we believed were clear.

A recent comment made me believe that the purpose of my blog is not completely clear to all, even though I think the commenter realized what I am trying to do.

I’m not really paranoid, at least as far as you know. Rather, I consider myself to be prepared like a Boy Scout, which is acceptable since I was a Boy Scout many years ago.

No, I’m not paranoid and I’m not trying to make people see bogeymen behind every street corner. The RackAttack blog is about getting you to think about your safety, along with the safety of your family. I can’t tell you how to defend yourself or your home because every home and every person is different with different skills. I carry a Kimber Ultra Carry in .45 ACP in a Milt Sparks VersaMax II holster with a spare magazine everywhere it is legal to do so, but that might be more that you can, or want, to handle. You might prefer a Smith & Wesson Chief’s Special in .38 Spl. or one of the new .380s, and there is nothing wrong with that. How I would handle a situation, might not work for you, but if I can get you to thinking about a situation to develop a plan, then I’ve done my job.

Thanks to John for putting me onto this topic. And as far as your question, Utah is the only state that currently allows concealed carry on all public colleges and universities with a permit. There are, however, some states that leave the concealed-carry decision up to each college or university, though, of course, most states outright ban concealed carry on all public schools.
