Jeff Cooper quote

"Not long ago it was easy to tell who the bad guys were. They carried Kalashnikovs. Now it is much more complicated, but one thing is sure - any man who covers his face and packs a gun is a legitimate target for any decent citizen."

Jeff Cooper, June 1993

Uh... yeah... I see what you mean Jeff!

Col. Cooper had a lot right.

Wish it were as easy as saying 'they guy with the Kalishnikov" but seeing how there are many "Patriots" carrying AK or direct copies, the face rag will have to suffice.

I've always found the facemasks used by domestic police agencies to be disturbing, to say the least. The SWAT guys say it's to protect their safety/identity when they have to confront really, really bad guys.

WTF? How is the job of a beat cop any different? Are they going to start masking-up next? We sure wouldn't want to be able to identify any that do something outside the law, now, would we?
