Skill Set: “First” Aid

There are several things that have always been required of a responsible individual. You’re the person that acquires food and shelter, provides security from outside threats, and safety – for example being prepared for a traumatic medical emergency. As a group, the Wire’s reader focus heavy on firearms use for defense – and other “fun” applications. Just as important, or possibly more so, is the ability to deal with medical emergencies.

As humans became more civilized, living in larger groups for obvious advantages, individuals began to shift their responsibilities to “specialists” – if make money to buy food, you don’t have to gather or hunt. Armed professionals provide security, both domestically and internationally. Safety – when you need emergency medical assistance, you call and help will arrive. Only now, as things become more “civilized” – an increase in violence and the latest “protests” - we’re discovering assistance may take a while. During a medical emergency – if you don’t do something right now someone dies - time is a precious commodity.

The riots have completely blocked the streets. The system is overwhelmed with calls; emergency personnel may arrive in a timely fashion. Heavy gunfire is preventing any response. In other words, “It’s up to you.” The knowledge, skills and gear necessary to deal with a trauma emergency are not that complicated. The fundamentals are (1) stop the bleeding, (2) keep them breathing and (3) prevent them from going into shock.

Tip: You Are Responsible for Your Own Safety

So far, 2020 has turned out to be quite a surprise for all of us. Unfortunately, it has been quite a large surprise for a lot of folks. I’m talking about the people who previously thought those of us who practice for personal defense were preparing for unrealistic scenarios.

'gun jugging'

What is "gun jugging"?

"Jugging" is a term typically used to describe crooks watching an unsuspecting person go to an ATM and take out cash, then following that person to another location and robbing them.

Recently, some police in different cities say they are seeing that same type of crime, but instead of ATMs, crooks look over shooting range parking lots. And instead of cash, they steal guns.

Have you heard of this?

Law-abiding gun owners are familiar with the sentiment: criminals will find illegal ways to get their hands on guns. 

We all need to be reminded to be vigilant!
