With all of the Hurricanes in the US lately (Harvey in Texas, Irma in Florida, Jose right behind Irma), it is great to see everyone coming together to help each other out. Countless lives have been saved, and many are grateful.
But there is also a darker side to this image that was lurking behind these disasters. There were those who stayed behind to loot, steal, and even worse to rob and assault homeowners. We may not want to think of these situations in such a light, but there are those out there who take these opportunities to do the unthinkable in order to pursue personal gain. Truth be told, these individuals are always blending into society, waiting for the perfect chance to strike.
The police are there to protect us, right? We shouldn't have to worry about these individuals, should we? Honestly, you never know if or when you could find yourself in the midst of such a situation. You don't know if you will ever be in the middle of a home break-in. The only things you should know for sure are:
1.) You have a habit of consistent Concealed Carry and you know how to use it.
2.) Your home is protected with a solid Security System that will not fail.
3.) Your head is on a swivel and you are situationally aware everywhere you go.
Whether your EDC is a Glock, Walther, 1911, FN, or whatever it may be; BE READY. I'm not asking you to be paranoid, I'm only asking that you stay situationally aware. God willing you never have to use your Security System or your EDC. But if you do, don't you want to know you are prepared for it to protect you and your family? Stay Alert, and you will Stay Alive!
