Notable Quote:

“When you have a gun and being a responsible gun owner, being a responsible concealed carrier, you have to move through life with these incidents and think about it as if you did not have a gun. It’s like, ‘What decision would I make right now if I wasn’t carrying?’ That’s how you have to think always with de-escalation.” – Stan Campbell
