Times are a changing. It would seem that we are facing a list of threats that is much more diverse than ever before. While violent crimes stats are actually down, its the violence in the crimes and media airtime that makes them so terrifying.
It’s also the nature of the crimes. Never before have we lived in a time where places like schools, churches and movie theaters could turn into massacre sites.
In this day and age, the age of the active shooter, we are always subject to gun violence at a moments notice. It is this terrifying situation that calls us to question many things about our society.
We are often concerned with the amount of guns around, the mental stability of the average person and of course, how we protect ourselves and the people we love.
Many are fighting fire with fire and carrying concealed on a daily basis. We have all seen a bad guy with a gun get stopped by a good guy with a gun. It happens and it’s real.
Still, there are other things we can do to be prepared as well. One of the best is body armor. Now, body armor has changed drastically. Long gone are the days of 25 lb plates that were used to protect against bullets.
Today we have lightweight body armor that can prevent against all sorts of threats including semi automatic rifles. There are a number of reviews out there that take a much deeper look at these types of body armor.
While it might seem strange or sad that we have to take a more tactical approach to life but you should be willing to go through this. We will never do away with crime and its better to be prepared than to deal with the sharp regret of not being prepared.
