    Mindset - Watch security guard outdraw thieves - Florida

    One has to be impressed with the reactions of this guard. I don't know what state, but it is a level of awareness we should all strive for as OCers.

    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

    Wow, I'm glad the security officer was alright, could of went a lot differently.

    Certainly looks like he has training, and a good head on his shoulders.

    You never think anything like this would happen, but it does.

    The guard had good "shoot and scoot" training.

    If you cant shoot from cover, shoot while moving.

    Give that man a raise. Simply outstanding reactions and technique.

    Bloody outstanding. Good reflexes, good form, good tactics, moving, and taking cover. Text-book gunfighter. I raise my glass.

    The video's fake. This guard would have been quickly dispatched in real life because he was open carrying.
    “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? ” -Bastiat

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.
