Good Guy Yeager continues:
I don’t carry a gun for self defense. I don’t carry a gun for protection. I carry a gun so I can shoot people in their fucking face that are hurting other people.
hahah well said.
He advocates “being the hero” in this video, which I think is good in theory if everything goes right. Things could go so wrong though. I’d argue that in addition to “Alive Hero” or “Dead Hero” a third possibility should be “Alive And Being Charged With Murder, Negligence etc. For Your Shot Not Going Where You Hoped It Would”. In reality not everyone that carries a gun can shoot as well as Yeager. How much would it suck if there was an active shooter scenario that you probably could have escaped from, but instead you got shot by a person that wanted to be a hero, and now your either dead, in a wheel chair, have a colostomy bag etc.. etc…? That definitely could happen if everyone that has a gun is all of the sudden full of confidence that they can be the hero of the day. Reminds of an Edmund Burke quote – “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” All I’m saying is that being the hero could be a slippery slope if you get in over your head. If you’re a tier1 HSLD operator and you can Mozambique mofos in your sleep then by all means take care of business.
