SPP 013: The Binary Nature of Firearms

October 25, 2015

Duration: 00:08:02

Direct Download: (4.7 MB)


The Binary Nature of Firearms: We discuss firearms and their power. Firearms are a lethal force defensive tool only. There is no gradient. They are binary: on or off. There is no sliding power scale for firearms. The moment the handgun leaves the holster, the wielder is projecting lethal force.

Secondary Defensive Tools: We peek into regulations covering the carry and use of secondary defensive tools. Just because a person can carry a tool while off-duty does not mean it is legal or permissible to carry it while on duty as a security guard. Putting on that uniform switches a person from being average Joe civilian to being under an entirely different set of state regulations and restrictions.
