I started my journey by taking action on preparing myself for training in self defense. I quickly came to understand that this includes self reliance and personal responsibility. My journey has taken me many places and I have tried to list the resources I have found the most valuable. I hope they serve you well.
We have organized some of this material around the United States Bill of Rights with are the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. The second amendment, which provides for the right to keep and bear arms is key to providing self-defense for yourself and your family. This is especially true if you are perceived as weak by people who mean you harm. If you are a woman, older, disabled or have a demeanor of weakness, then you are a prime candidate for those engaging in victom selection.
If you decide that being armed is going to be your primary self-defense endeavor then a whole series of other citizenship issues must be part of your education.
