Personal Safety and Home Defensebeta

June 17, 2012

A group focused on ideas and issues related to preventing, deterring and responding to crime in and around the home.

Our group is devoted to helping one another effectively address the issues of personal safety in and around the home.  There are many steps we can take to make ourselves, our families and our possessions safer from criminal attack.  The group is focused on attitudes, strategies, skills and hardware necessary to prevent, deter and respond effectively to crime in the home.  The group aims to address the security and self-defense issues of all kinds of living situations, from a high-rise apartment in a large city, to a single family home in a small town or suburb, to an isolated farmhouse out in the country. 

Join us to learn and contribute.

Fort Hood

I came home from my weekly training class, turned on CNN and was immediately confused.  I thought they were showing old footage of the first Fort Hood shooting.

Ironically, at our class we were practicing unarmed escape from an armed attacker in our house.  One counterintuitive thing that became obvious to us really fast was that getting trapped in a room was a big mistake.  This seems to contradict the standard active shooter advice of hide and hope he does not pick you.
