Sheepdogs, Guardians and Liberty control

The issue of security is a serious matter, we should be following
the realistic examples of what works to keep our children safe.

So what is the best way to protect people from evil? Taking a page
from ranchers or other rural folk who need to protect their flocks from
predation may be the best way of figuring this out. We know what doesn’t work, and that would be depriving the people of their liberty of self-preservation.
But this doesn’t stop the left from obsessing over inanimate object
control. This is a futile pursuit since even in an environments where
the Liberty of self-defense is heavily controlled, shootings still take place.

It would be far better if we did not need these measures, but the
Socialist-Left has insisted upon tearing down the country’s moral
underpinnings to replace them with it’s vile collectivist ideals. So we
have to decide the best way to protect from that which the enemies of
Liberty on the Left have imposed on the nation. The fact of the matter
is that these commonly held arms have been around for over 100 years while these attacks are of a more recent phenomenon. It also needs to be pointed out that Despite Heightened Fear Of School Shootings, It’s Not A Growing Epidemic as reported on Left-Leaning NPR.

Examine how is security provided in other fields to decide what Will Work.

As has been always the case, Liberty control will not work because
evil will always find a way to kill. Witness recent events in Austin,
Texas where bombs
replaced guns in bringing on terror. Even if guns could be wiped from
existence criminals, terrorist or governments would find a way to
deliberately slaughter people. Therefore the choice is that of restoring
our moral underpinnings or providing new guards for our security. While
the national socialist Left still holds sway over the culture, media
and government indoctrination centres that necessary restoration will
have to wait. So the only realistic option is one of armed, on-scene responders to protect our most precious resource.

Similar circumstances teach the best forms of security: The example of livestock control and protection.

Law enforcement personal are often referred to ‘sheepdogs’.
They maintain control over crowds of people in varying situations while
also protecting them. We can extend this analogy further as a way of
illustrating the way to keep people safe from predation. Ranchers have
two main types of animals to assist them, for control they use the
venerable herding breeds of dogs ranging from the Border Collie, Australian Shepherd, Corgi, Sheltie, etc.
To protect them they also have animals commonly referred to as
Livestock guardians. These range from special breeds of livestock
guardian dogs to Llamas or Donkeys. They normally live with the flock to
provide around the clock protection. They also blend in with it to a
certain extent so that the predators cannot single them out.

Guardian protect the flock while sheepdogs maintain control.

In both situations it’s the guardians who blend in and are always on the scene in case of attack. With the ‘flocks’ of humans, the guardians are the people carrying concealed weapons.
Those bent on evil don’t know who this may be, their numbers or
location. The element of uncertainty keeps the human predators at bay.
By contrast the sheepdogs usually stand out in a crowd. While they also
offer a deterrent effect, this can be negated by their visibility. They
can also be targeted first in an attack to defeat that layer of
security.

In the world of the rancher attempting to both protect his (or her)
flock, they have the sheepdogs to move and control the flock while the
guardians protect it. The sheepdogs do offer a layer of protection, but
they cannot be present all the time. It’s the livestock guardians who
bond with the flock who protect it around the clock.

The Takeaway.

Recent events illustrated that it’s impossible to keep people safe by banning guns or any other Liberty control
measures. The only way to keep them safe in the immoral environment
brought on by the Left, is to have both uniformed law enforcement and
those carrying concealed on site as dual layers of defence. Merely
decreeing a ‘Gun-Free’ zone or banning firearms are dangerous
notions that do not work. These fanciful Leftist constructs only serve
to deprive the innocent of the Liberty of self-defence and do nothing
but raise the body count.

Differential equations teaches us that one can use the initial conditions of the present to extrapolate events in the near term balanced with the knowledge of the past. The interaction of technological advances and the march of history is fascinating. History can inform those willing to listen as to what will happen in the future because the laws of human natural are as immutable as the elegant equations of Newtonian physics.
