'Feeling' Safe vs. 'Being" Safe

I have railed on this topic for years. Frequently you will hear certain politicians and LEOs talk about ensuring that people "feel" safe. Oh yes, a no guns decal on a door into a coffee shop does wonders for my safety. In reality, it concerns me because the scumbags (those neanderthals who can read) who don't care about the law suddently know that inside is an environment rich with potential victims.

Rarely do you hear politicos and police talk about people actually "being" safe.

Well, the "Real Guy Guys" had a discussion on this worth noting. Even within the shooting sports and self defense there are some who get in a discussion and take the wagon over the cliff without realizing what they are doing.

Words matter, people!
