MDTS Concealed Carry Principles


MINDSET: For some, the presence of violence is commonplace. They grow up in violent families, in violent neighborhoods, in and amongst violent criminal actors who use violence to get and take what they want or need.They aren't shocked, hurt or sympathetic when seeing violence done to another person. They do not react to the threat of violence like "normal" people. To them, they are the normal ones and you are the weak, the victims, the ones who don't understand the power of violence as a tool in a society of earners and takers. For those not raised in such an environment it's easy to convince oneself, based on movies, TV, media and pre-conceived notions that such violence won't find you or worse, that you are ready if it ever does. Before buying a gun, a knife or taking a martial arts class a space needs to be created in your head for violence and the potential for its sudden, unplanned appearance. Without this conscious consideration of violence it's startling presence often results in thoughts and questions like "Why me" when it should be statements like "Not me". To learn more about how to make this space in your head, how violent criminal actors are made, how and why they select their victims and how to not be selected join #MDTS on Oct 18th in Utica NY when we host Dr. William Aprill @aprillriskconsulting of Aprill Risk Consulting for his acclaimed "UNTHINKABLE" one day class.
