Why Self-Defense? (Podcast – Season 6, Ballistic Radio Episode 258, June 10th, 2018)

“I don’t believe that being black, white, asian, gay, straight, transgender, transexual, short person, big person, tall person,.. whatever, should disclude you from being able to protect yourself.” — Jeff Bloovman


Why self-defense? This seems like a trick question. But this is exactly the question that we are asking Jeff Bloovman of Armed Dynamics.

For those who grew up around guns or who already understand why they choose an armed lifestyle the conversation about why someone would want to follow a similar path seems obvious. Many times assumptions are made about the type of people who choose self-defense and particularly firearms as a means to defend themselves. Jeff is here to talk about stereotypes, why those who might not traditionally be seen as the gun-toting type might choose firearms and how we approach the subject of self-defense and firearms to people who don’t already think and believe as we do.

This is a great conversation that flows naturally through stereotypes, the ideas around safety and responsibility, conversation and interpersonal skills and so much more.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to be a better ambassador to people who don’t already subscribe to your way of life and thinking, then this is an episode for you.
