Keep Your Ego In Check

As John Correia 《ASP》 always says, “Keep your ego in check.”

Florida man who claimed self-defense after shooting man over parking spot sentenced


I live in Tampa. When that news item first hit the airwaves, I told my wife that I thought the shooter was going to eventually go to jail. The ultimate victim’s actions didn’t seem to warrant a shot. Yes, Florida is a “stand your ground” state, but the victim was backing and turning away when he was shot.


My thoughts exactly. I always say train, train, train. Just taking a CCW class and being able to hit a target at 15 yards is not enough. If you carry you must be mentally trained and ready to de-escelate the situation if possible. This guy was a wacko for sure and his actions took an innocent life and gave all of us a black eye.


… another child, 5 years old, witnessing his Father’s murder…
what did this teach him? what does he take away?
I grieve for Him and hope his Father, Mr. McGlockton, rests in peace.

I know when to be peaceful, and the only time I hit PROTECTION COMBAT mode is when I feel like my life or my loved ones lives are being threatened. Military training helps a lot, but I’ve always had a rather mellow tone to things in my life. So I am peaceful even when dealing with anti gun people trying to start something. I just keep a calm tone and try to explain what the 2nd amendment is.

Agree, military training does help alot. Especially when it comes to getting hot headed. To me, it’s seems like he was looking for a fight. I may be wrong, but it looks that way.
