Accepting Your Limitations

by Bruce N. Eimer, Ph.D

“If you carry a gun, you need to recognize that the reason you do so is for personal protection, not to transform yourself into a would-be super hero. Carrying a gun does not give you a license to get involved in situations that are none of your business. It does not give you the authority of a police officer. Your job is to stay safe and keep your loved ones safe.

It makes good sense as a general principle to avoid becoming inextricably involved in confrontations where you are not directly affected in the first place. You take a risk when you involve yourself in other people’s arguments. This is not to say that there will never be a situation that is worth the risk, but that is a personal decision.”
