The other day I wrote a post titled “High Noon” regarding the tendency of people to turn their backs on their protectors once they have provided for their safety, thus exposing traits in said people that they would probably rather remain in the shadows. Winston Churchill after WWII comes immediately to mind. I was trying to remember an essay on this subject that I had read a few years ago that described this phenomenon brilliantly but to my frustration I couldn’t remember the author or title.
Smitty at “The Other McCain” posted an article today touching on gun ownership and 2nd amendment responsibilities and lo and behold referenced the article! It was written by retired LTC Dave Grossman and really cuts to the quick regarding citizens and their relationship to the police, firefighters, and soldiers who do the work of keeping them safe.
Go and read the whole thing if you haven’t seen it before.
