As armed Americans, it behooves us to know our enemies, too. So, do you understand the criminal mind? To my mind it’s pretty simple: criminals want what someone else has and they don’t fancy working to get it. Saying that, that pretty much describes how government works. And there are a lot of hard-working criminals in this world (you try erecting a communications tower for a Mexican drug cartel in the desert in August). So let’s try that again. Who cares how the criminal mind works? Rather than getting into the theoretical psychology that makes Criminal Minds such a fantastic show—literally—armed citizens should focus on a few basics: how, when and where criminals attack. That’s my take. How do you view the criminal mind?
