F@#k Nakatomi Plaza

F@#k Nakatomi Plaza!
I heard that term the other day and it’s one I wholeheartedly subscribe to.
I see many a youtube warrior these days saying how he’s a sheep dog and will use his gun to protect and go to the aid of others.
I say FNP.  If you want to be John McClane and go up against the recently excommunicated member of a radical East German political group, Hans Gruber and his henchmen, knock yourself out.
I’m getting out of the building.


When a deranged and heavily armed individual is hell bent on killing everyone he comes in contact with, the smart individual avoids contact with said deranged individual.
Unless directly confronted with a threat…I am not running towards the sound of gunfire.
The odds are, you’re not that good in a gunfight and from the outset, you’re on the wrong side of the oldest game in the book, which is an ambush!
If you’re still hell bent on being a hero, here’s something to think about.  You could die.
Your wife will collect your life insurance check and comfort her sorrows with some other man and remarry (probably with-in the year) and your kids will eventually play ball with someone else they call dad.

Worse yet, you could be severely injured and spend the rest of your life paralyzed in a wheel chair with a colostomy bag attached to your leg.  You could take a bullet to the brain and end up in a nursing home learning your ABC’s all over again.  (At this point you should re-read the part about your wife finding comfort in someone else’s arms.)
If you still have delusions of grandeur and insist on being a hero that saves the day and becomes an instant celebrity for a 24 hr news cycle, you should take into account that the people you save aren’t going to pitch in and pay your medical bills.


I’m not against doing what it takes to defend yourself.  I just don’t believe in getting into a gunfight you don’t have to be in.
I’ll also say this, if you don’t believe in carrying a firearm for your own protection, sorry about your luck. You are on your own.  I’m not responsible for you.
You should do yourself a favor and read my article about not waste your time trying to give answers to people who haven’t even asked the question.


If you haven’t read “The SHTF Art of War ” yet, and want to know how the predictable, savage nature of your fellow human being will bloom when the lights to go out, fear not. You can get it immediately with no waiting on KINDLE.
It’s also available in a very popular EMP resistant print copy.

Art Of War



A special note:  The DIE HARD movie is a film adaptation of a 1979, Roderick Thorp, Novel called Nothing Lasts Forever.
