Self-defense gun gurus talk an awful lot about situational awareness. You know; scanning your world [with or without Neil Cavuto] for potential threats. That way your OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) loop doesn’t fall behind the bad guy’s OODA loop, should things go loopy. I practice what they preach—to the point where I’m polite to everyone I meet and have a plan to kill them. Excluding little children. Outside of war zones. Yes there is that. A big part of situational awareness is avoiding situations where you could be ambushed. Well-lit or not. You don’t have to become a recluse. Just don’t go where angels fear to tread. Especially Hell’s Angels. Just sayin’.
