Alternatives to calling the cops

– Get to know your neighbors.  Talking to others in our communities allows us to discuss our grievances in a rational manner.  This also gives us people who we can call in an emergency, who are almost guaranteed to respond faster than the cops could.

– Mediation.  Sometimes after a heated altercation someone who wasn’t involved the situation can help come up with a solution that satisfies everyone.

– Learn self defense  Taking personal accountability for our own safety, including how to properly and safely use firearms, can make us feel more empowered, safer, and more confident.

– Live and let live  Not everyone has the same opinions and values, but so long as the things others are doing aren’t harming us, it’s in everyone’s best interest to let people do their own thing.  Why create unnecessary conflict?
