This one’s going to be a little more philosophical.
LTC Dave Grossman wrote an article a number of years ago that has taken the military and armed citizen cultures by storm. In it, he posited that there are three kinds of people: Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs. Sheep are, according to the analogy, gentle, peaceful people who would never harm anyone. Wolves are people like gangsters and terrorists, who prey on the sheep. Sheepdogs are those who willingly protect the sheep, namely soldiers and police, though it has been taken to apply also to those who arm themselves on a daily basis.
