Re: Defeating the Carjacker
[quote=Gungnir]Yes I have although before spending dollars there I’d think about the NRA, I’m a lifetime member of the NRA (even though I think they’re not tough enough on 2nd Amendment issues, and sometimes play percentage rather than absolute, and have had their fair share of compromises), they are the biggest pro-gun lobby group in the US.
However lets turn this question around a moment, for a little training exercise, since motive is a good thing to try to establish in any scenario.
Why do you think that they’re contacting you? What have you done that has made you a target for this approach? Where could they get your personal contact information? Do you think their intent is beneficial to you, or to them?
Now before you click the link below consider the questions I asked, this is something we need to do everytime someone offers us something that is to "our" benefit, before we accept that offer.
Hey whassup guys? Did I kill the thread asking a hard question…?
Or is this an indiction as to why we frequently fall back onto hardware, or skillsets? Because it’s easier?[/quote]
Sorry that it took so long to get back. Been focused elsewhere. NRA not an issue here – I already joined a couple of months ago.
Let me respond to your questions:
1. Why do you think that they’re contacting you? [because I signed up for their email newsletter]
2. What have you done that has made you a target for this approach? [see #1]
3. Where could they get your personal contact information? [see #1]
4. Do you think their intent is beneficial to you, or to them? [both]
5. Did I kill the thread asking a hard question…? [Nah – I don’t think anyone else was interested except me!]
Thanks for that link – it’s always nice to see what others think.
BTW, THR looks like an interesting site. I might spend some time poking around over there when I get a chance. Are they as respectful there as folks are in this thread?
