I've been reading through John Farnham's Quips from the Defense Training website. The following is from his quip entitled, "Convenient Fantasy."
When you are not continually equipped and prepared for an instant, precise, and lethal counterattack, any "safety" you're imagining is a convenient fantasy. Like cheap insurance, it all works just fine- until you have a claim! Enjoy it while you can.I suggest that you read the quip. It will only take you 40 seconds or so.
Oh, and Merry Christmas!
