sheeple or sheep dog?

What would I be classified as, sheep or sheep dog?

While gunbloggers normally are considered sheep dogs, remember, I do not have a CHL.

  1. Having (or not having) a CHL doesn’t make you a sheepdog. Blogging (about guns or any subject) doesn’t make you a sheepdog.

    IMHO, it’s a mindset.

    If we go back to Grossman:

    “If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed”

    So I reckon, especially given what you’re studying to become, you’d be a sheepdog.

  2. Sheepdog-ism comes in different flavors. There are those that are willing to take action to save themselves, those that are willing to take action to save people close to them, and those that are willing to take action to save any innocent in danger. Those that work in law enforcement take on that highest level of responsibility and are burdened with expectations from the sheep that armed citizens do not have.
