"Think that's where people forget that. Not everybody at the party needs to be the hero. Yeah. Like, it's not like we don't want that many. The whole idea of too many cooks in the kitchen. Sure. We don't want a lot of crossfire. We chaos. There's going to be a point person and there's going to be all the others that either help guide people to safety, they help applying tourniquets, they become good witnesses like everybody plays their part, not everybody has to be the person behind the gun. Yeah. And I think that's what we would miss. And that's why going back to this whole idea of, it's okay. There's no shame in not carrying 24/7. Do I advocate carrying as much as you can? Yes, but that may have limits. However you define what those limits are. There's no shame in that. And that's totally fine. I love that. I love that. That's not what I was perfect. Because then you're not hypocritical. Yes. We're about that. You're like living as authentically as possible. We don't want to be hypocrites, but you're right. I mean, at some point, sometimes it just might not work for what you're doing that day. It's beyond me. You just forgot. You're just a mom that, you know, right? I mean, you guys have other priorities in your head. And I think Joel also being a woman, like there's sometimes of the month that I'm sorry. I've got an extra 5 pounds of water and I'm just like, I just can't. Oh, I said to her to go with like extra time is the most super Afro. I'm a little on edge. Super bloated that I put on a gun and I'm just like within. Minutes. I'm like, I can't do anything because all I can think about is how this is just insanely uncomfortable. And it's just my pants don't fit to begin with. At that point, so it's just like, it's a whole thing. And I think we need to give ourselves those women grace. And when we decide to enter the slice cell and are living it, that it's okay. Yeah. You don't have to be. And there's a lot of ways to craziness of being shamed to like, oh, you don't know. Or you don't do this or you don't do no. And there's like I said, there's a lot of ways to be self reliant and efficient and not everything involves a firearm. There's so many different things that we can do to help better safeguard ourselves, even if it's just being like you said situationally aware. There's other tools that we can use. There's other ways that we can be an asset to a situation that doesn't involve a firearm. This kind of conversation, like the practicality, we need more practical thinking people in our industry. We don't need like Instagram warriors at all. The highway, like you suck, if you don't, we can carry this way. We'll have a whole other episode talking about the Instagram warriors and all that stuff. Oh my gosh. Well, this was awesome, Brie. Thank you so much. I'm so glad that now that you both have little girls, I have somebody to give my shoe collection a bag collection. Oh my gosh. Yes. Yeah. Exactly. Or others share them. We'll share this with you. God has bigger plans for me at that time. It'll just be. It's all too great for Trump. Yes. Yes, exactly. Yeah. Just be like, here's my closet once I get like, there you go. Sweet closet built. And then that'll be. Well, Brie, thank you so much. Not everyone know where they can find you. Sure. So all over social media, I'm still, you know, it's funny, I'm now that I'm in Texas, I feel like I need to start getting back into things. I gotta be honest, take a little bit of break with being a mom and my priorities. A little different.

"I don't feel like I was growing the baby, or I'm not even going to kid you. I had someone and I mean not to put down guys, but I was like, oh, this is a bad piece of advice. I actually had a gentleman suggests that I should get the bra hoster flash bang. And I was like, uh, mazel pointing right down to my child. Probably not a good idea. Just gonna go on record there. Your body is like, our bodies as women, without being pregnant, fluctuate and change all the time. Exactly. So when you have a growing human being in your body that not only changes your stomach, it's changing like almost everything your body. So no. So that was not a piece of advice that I followed. Needless to say. But even now, as she's at an age where she's obsessed with my purse. She will pull everything out of my purse, things that I think were tucked away zipped up out of sight. She will find. And she likes to play with it. So of course, at this point, there is going to be no kind of purse carry, because I'm petrified. And when it's nice to say that we can't be distracted, but bottom line is there are going to be those moments where we are distracted. We can not be in hyper alert every second of our lives. And that one moment that you're not is when something bad happens. So that's off the table. And then like you said, even with carrying on the person, which is what I always advocate, I always carry appendix. Right now, that's difficult because between nursing her was so she's laying right there. And or her just physically exploring as I'm carrying her, and in my dominant side, the side that I would shoot on is also the side that I'm most comfortable. So I think one of the things that I want to think about is training myself physically at the gym to strengthen my non dominant side so at the very least because also too like think about it. If you're in a situation where you have to draw from fire and you're drawing from holster rather and you're carrying a child, like it's not gonna work. If you're carrying on the side that you actually carry a firm. So I definitely need to get a little bit more strength training on my non dominant side. So at the very least, I can carry her on that side if I have to ever draw from holster when we get to that point, but again, it has been a real big challenge and then coming to Dallas. And as you know, I know you style attached, you talk a lot about fashion and caring, it is a 107° out. It is just not leaving the house to stay, so I think too that goes. I know, I know what you're talking about. And I think we've talked about this at lunch. We are in the gun industry. We promote caring, you know, you have an entire clothing line. I'm talking about, you know, how you can conceal carry not sacrifice your style, your proponent for women to carry guns. You know, yes, we promote this lifestyle and we believe living a lifestyle, but at the same time, as women you don't have to be carrying every second of every single day. And or be ashamed if you don't, because that's the thing. I had a person why WLS actually, like we were at an influencer party, and I don't even know, I don't even know who this person was, but it came out to her inside. We're at the hotel, like we're all in like really nice dresses and mind you and it's full security. I have a full security staff. I came out here and I was like, are you caring? And I'm like, who are you? First off, I've no idea who you are. Why? And I was like, actually, no, I'm not saying, huh? And I'm like, huh, what? And then he's like, well, that's what you promote on your social media. And I'm like, you're right, I do, but there are times where I don't carry. And I think if you're drinking your eyes being social, they're drinking like being responsible and also there is nothing wrong with if you decide not to carry. And there's nothing wrong. If I don't know, I want to wear a dress and I'm not going to carry. It's not the end of the world. We have events that we're going to that either require us to dress a certain way or not saying that you couldn't purse carry, but just it's okay. Okay. And I think that's the issue. I think there's a lot of shaming in our culture of, oh, well, you can only be one way or the other. And it's like, no, there are circumstances that might change that. Again, like if you're out and you're at an event and you might be drinking, like I want to sometimes I might want to have a cocktail. So let me give you an example. Most police, at least the police departments that I'm I've worked with that I'm familiar with. If you carry off duty and you get involved in an off duty shooting and even if you're completely justified, they generally will make you do a toxicology. They will see if you were drinking at that point. Because that is a factor because most most of the time, generally every state, you are not a lot of drinking. You're not under the influence in operating firearms. So you can in Texas, there is no well, I mean, there's no, there's no limit. There's a legal limit. To drive, you know, like they have, they have set limits, but they don't actually have a set limit. Oh, that's interesting. Alcohol. Prior to carrying firearms. So this is why we learned. Yes, so you just need to be, you know. But I think again, when we go back to know yourself as well. And if you are not comfortable, being in that situation, where you might have a drink or two, like, do you feel confident in your ability to perform to the level that is demanded of you if you engage. Or is your best course of action being a good witness? There's nothing wrong with being a good witness, that that has value in itself. And I thought about that. But that's great. Self awareness self reliance. It could sometimes just mean you are a very good witness. Taking in all the information, getting a good description of the perpetrator, knowing what they're wearing, knowing where they kind of ran off to the situation. If there is a good guy in that shooting, that might help their case. So that's the situation where like, okay, you may not be carrying in that event, but that's okay. If something happens, you still have value. You still have, there's something that you can contribute that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be carrying a firearm. I never thought about that. I think that's such a great point. That is a really great point, actually. Yeah. Because I mean, look, if you are that person, this dickin kid that just went through the mall shooting, you know, a few weeks back or whatever. Think about that situation where, you know, yes, he was in the right, all of his shots were good. He did what he needed to do, and it had a very good result. But not every state not every situation is the same. So if you have someone who gets involved in a shooting like that, and even though they got the bad guy, they were totally in the right by most of our definitions. If they are facing that civil case at civil lawsuit, your testimony as a witness might be the thing that makes the situation go one way or the other. And I

"And to listen to that instinct, that makes a difference. I remember when I was about, I must have been about ten, 9 or ten years old. And I'll never forget it, but I was waiting for my grandfather to pick me up at school after school. And right next door to our school was a little town library. So I would go to the library and entertain myself and my grandfather would pick me up sometimes. And I remember there was a woman. Now, I couldn't guarantee you a 100% that she was about to do something terrible. But my instinct was something was not right about this. She kept wanting me to help her get her books. Out of the backseat of her car. And I just, I had a weird instinct and I was like, you know, I don't, something's not right here. And I kept saying, no, and I was trying to be polite. And she of course, she tried to do the whole thing, oh, you're being a little brat, you're not being nice, you're not being helpful or whatever. And I just thought something's not right. But what was weird is that after all of this exchange and then me not helping her get her books, she got in her car and she left. Again, I don't know a 100%, sure. That was going, but I knew enough that something is wrong. And I think if I have anything that I learned from that experience of my own, that when my daughter is old enough, I want to teach her to trust her instincts because I think that is something that we miss. I think a lot of times, especially as women, we second guess ourselves, we think that like, oh, I'm being irrational. I'm being crazy. No, listen to your gut, because chances are it's probably right. We've kind of shifted in that thinking. So I mean, obviously, we're in the south, both my dad and my husband's father were in the ministry. So we were always told, you know, the Christian thing to do is to look at everybody in the eye, smile, say hi, be as kind as possible. And I remember when we had my son, first, I was like, you know what? There's something to if he doesn't want to say hi or he doesn't want to go to somebody. We said from the very beginning, we're not forcing that. I'm not forcing it. I'm sorry. I even have some of my friends, like my son won't go to them. Nothing about there's nothing wrong. But I've told drew, I'm like, hey, let's not force it, you know? Let's let him figure out and realize. Let's let him get comfortable in the situation and assess because my son is the assessor. He has to observe he has to that's good. And I think that's good that a two year old is learning that. So I'm like, instead, because our instinct is to force him to be like, these are the things our family, these are our Friends, like you need to make sure that you're loving on them. And these are your people. Yes. Well, I want them to see you can trust our judgment, you know, and we're not going to put you in a dangerous situation, but he's going to come to that knowledge on his own. And so I think it's like dialing into our kids. No, I have no idea what my daughter is going to be like. She's a little miss social butterfly. So she may not have that same, it's going to be different how we approach both of them, but I think just, you know, we start with little things from situational awareness, like right now, we'll go on walks and I'm like, okay, you know, my son, tell me every water hose you find. And I want him to point out and find the water hoses. And it's not because I'm like, let's learn situational awareness. I want you to be aware of your surroundings. It's like, let's start getting in the mindset of you focusing and finding things that are in your surroundings and I want your mindset to just start getting in that place. And so that's kind of some of the things that I'm just realizing it's more. My parents, I don't remember them ever being intentional about those kind of things. I think too, like piggybacking on that. Not only is the situational awareness of our children and what we kind of instill with them and the young age, but I also, now as a parent, I mean, not that I didn't pay attention before, but I'm really paying attention to amber alerts now. There's such an increasing amount of amber alerts that it makes the hair in the back of my neck go up. And that's the other thing too, I think, as parents, you know, we live in a very busy world, and we have lots of distractions where there's cell phones. And when there wasn't a child, I used to always tell people, don't be distracted by your cell phone. Don't have your head buried in it, whether you're walking, you're sitting in your car in the parking lot playing on your phone. Now with a child, it's even more so. Don't have those distractions because it only takes a moment for someone to take your child. And that's my new thing. That's the new focus. It's not even about me and my own safety. It's my primary focus now is on her. And her safety because, you know, I don't know the statistic, but I remember reading an article and it was like shocking. They basically, if the perpetrator takes that child and they're able to leave, the chances of you retrieving that child are very slim to know. So that's the other thing too. If God forbid you're in that situation, you need to know how to take action quickly to stop them and neutralize them before they leave because if you can't, it's very grim and that's a whole other level of self awareness that I've never thought about before and just being that in tune with what's going on in your environment and reading people. And I'm sorry. At this point, I'm like, I don't care if I'm rude. I potentially mean to be rude, but if I'm not comfortable around you, I am absolutely going to get my child away from you. Right. Sorry. Whether you're offended by that or not, I don't really care. Your children is your priority. I'm sorry. Yeah. And you have to just be okay with that. You know, and I think that's something too that I'm realizing now as a parent that is just things happen very quickly. And if you are not prepared for that moment, you could very well lose your child. What about caring and having a baby? Because we were like, that's a challenge. I love mainland. I love. I love Eleanor, and I want to carry and snuggle and smother them so much love as much as possible, but today, when I was holding Malan, she's because she's got also gotten bigger and a lot more like she's moving a little bit more in both. I believe, well, I know that. Mainland is crawling in Ellie is about to walk. So she stuck her foot right in my waistband and I was like, it's a good thing and oh my God on today because she would have been like right on my grip on my gun and I was like, right. What? What do you do? You know, I'm just switching sides because but what are you guys doing in terms of like caring when you actually also have to carry your baby? It's a challenge I gotta be honest and I told my husband I was like, I am all about transparency because I don't ever want to present myself in a way that is not truthful because that doesn't help people. The truth helps people. And I gotta be honest, like two things. Moving to a brand new state where I don't know all the local laws when it comes to firearms. First and foremost, I know we have constitutional Gary here. That's amazing. It's awesome. That doesn't negate the fact that I need to know what the local laws are. That's really important. So he and I are in that process of educating ourselves so that when as we carry, we know what those laws are. That should be everyone's first just awareness. But yes, carry with the child. During pregnancy, there was the fear of like, oh my gosh, I'm carrying a human being in me. It's hard to navigate where is a safe place for me to carry, that

"Welcome back. We're here to talk to you. We were going to have you. I love it. I love it. Look, you're in Dallas. You might get called up a lot to come back on the show. I love it. And I have to say, when my husband and I were deciding between Texas and Florida, like true story, our biggest thing, we were like, we have so many friends and Dallas. And that literally was one of our primary motivators of choosing Dallas. And it's growing. I mean, the game is growing here. We're trying to get into a year. Okay, so we all met. Well, you guys met through gun TV and then we all connected even more through social media. And did you read the back then? One that we would even have known or met each other, but we've always seen each other at shot showing all the events that we're at. And then that we would all be living in Texas. No. It never occurred to me we'd be living together, but it also never occurred to me how important it would be to have so many of your like, I feel like it's just critical time right now to be surrounded by the people that just get what's going on in the world. And that's, I think, why I like to people ask, oh, why did you move? And it's funny because I never know my audience, so I don't know if they're conservative or not. So I know I careful with what I say or how I say it. But I'm always like, well, we kind of escaped New York. And they give me this perplexed look. And I'm like, well, we don't really fit in there. We'll just say that. And then you're better than me because every time someone asks, I'm like, freedom. They're like, why did you move on like freedom? And the people who get it are like, oh yeah, 'cause some people are just kind of like, you're one of them. Get rid of it. Yeah, exactly. Because you don't know, but I try to explain to people I'm like, we just didn't really fit in. And honestly, like I said, we felt like that. We felt like we were very isolated. I know some great people in New York don't get me wrong. Politically, don't really align with us. And that's okay. I don't have an issue with that, but we felt like we just were sort of like, we were the oddballs. And we didn't have that community, and that was something we were looking for. And especially now that we have a daughter, it's like, I want her to have a community of people, especially women that I not only like and respect, but we have common ground. And I don't need my every friend in my life to think like me or talk like me or believe what I believe. But to not to live in an area where we didn't have anybody that we related to, it was, we kind of started to feel it. And we saw the world through our daughter's eyes and like, well, what kind of life is that for her daughter? Throughout like a really big update. We had you on the show last. So we've had several times. Really, at this point. And if you want to go here, Brie has an incredible incredible story of how she got where she is in the firearm industry. And even getting into that world, becoming a firearms instructor, if you want to listen to that, you can go back and listen, I forget the episode. I forgot to put in the show notes in the show notes. Yes, but you can go listen to her home before a couple times. I know that we've talked about range etiquette with you. You shared your story. There's been some other. You did a really great WLS that you really got to do a deep dive into getting to know Brie and why she's so special and so special to us. And so go and listen to that episode because I think when you give us the update now as to what's been going on in your life, it's just gonna make so much more sense. So catch us up. So yes. It's funny. And I say this with reservation because I never want anybody to think and I don't want to even tell myself that I wasn't doing things as like a backup plan. I don't want it to ever seem like that. But full transparency, like I always knew I wanted to be a mom. Like that was just like a given. It's time I was focused solely on acting and I wanted to be a mom. Those are my two goals in life. And then as time went on and as what we talked about in my last episode or one of the other episodes, that it was very difficult. I was previously married, my first husband passed away when we were trying to have a family, which was very traumatic. And then, you know, I continue to have that dream of being a mother, but as the older I got, the more difficult it became. So I kind of got to a point where I sort of surrendered to, well, maybe it's going to happen maybe it won't. And I filled my life with other interests, other passions. Thinking that like, well, that's fine. Again, it's not it wasn't the plan that I had set out in life, but it was what I was given. And I embraced it, and I loved it, and I was thankful for it. Flash forward, I'm happy to say after ten years. I mean, it was literally a ten year miracle. I have a little girl. And she is the person. And it's changed everything about how I look at life like everything. And I know I kind of expected that to happen, but I think my husband probably expected it even more than I saw coming. Because I think, you know, now I realize that was a ten year emotional, not only physical, but emotional investment in this idea, this dream of having a child and being a mom, and now that she's here, I knew I could sell that I was shifting in the way I saw things when I was pregnant, but that was a given. I could start to see how I was probably going to adjust how I lived after she arrived. And truth be known, and that is absolutely what's happened. Like at my life has totally shifted since she's been here. It's got me rethinking a lot of what I'm doing. Everything that I do on my day to today is as a result of thinking about how she fits into that, which has been an interesting challenge. If you know it's like a business owner and a mom, it's a lot of juggling. And you prioritize differently. You know, I'm not only mom, but I'm still a wife, so my husband needs just as much as attention as my daughter and our dogs and everybody else. So it's an interesting position to be in it's a problem. It's not really a problem. It's a challenge we'll say that I'm very grateful for because I feel like I've waited ten years to get to this challenge. I welcome it. So it's been an interesting journey to now see how this chapter of my life fits into the whole story. Sure. Well, I think that's something interesting because we both are not we both, but you both had challenges becoming pregnant and having. And now you both have a beautiful, beautiful babies. And I'm so lucky because I get to spoil them. But how is that pre babies? You know, we all come together because we had the same self reliant mindset. You know, we both we all wanted to be empowered. We all wanted to help women. And personal safety was very important. Important to us in our daily life and how has that mindset in that kind of lifestyle now that you guys are both moms and not that boys and kind of handle themselves, you know, I know they need they need they need to be taught and loved and all that. But with both of you having daughters and seeing how the world is changing and moving like how is that mindset of being a mom just you thinking about your own personal safety and how to kind of bring that into your daughter's life even at such a young age but also how you guys have shifted your own personal safety just in living your daily life because I feel like that's a hard. I was always taught when I was little you know you don't talk to strangers like those kinds of things and I assume that you have to start those conversations no matter how young they are because I'm sure that stuff starts. You've got to start, right? Well, it's like a weird balance because she's our daughter is ten and a half months. So she's at this age. We're like, we don't necessarily want her to be afraid of people. So we were trying to be cautious about not letting her be fearful of people. So she's super friendly. And she knows no stranger, which on one hand is sweet and cute and it's very innocent, but there will come a time where that conversation has to happen occur that it's like you can't be that. Unfortunately, you can't be that way with everybody. Now, I think the blessing and I remember this even as a child myself and maybe a couple of situations that I was in as a kid that I remember thinking like I remember my mindset then where you have kids have great instincts and I think if you can teach your child to have good instincts

"Oh my gosh, welcome back everybody to another episode of not your average gun girls. We are happy to have our friend Brie, Michael Warner with us, AKA tactical, awesome firearms instructor and what I like to say now is a Hollywood conservative. Yes. A rare breeze. Yes. 5 feet between but I think there are a lot more positive. Yes, yes. Yes, I think most of them if they do exist, they kind of live under a rock very quietly. Well, you know, they don't want to lose those jobs in that paycheck. Yes. And that is a very real thing, unfortunately. It is a very, we all got to live and pay our bills. How do you balance it? I mean, you're very vocal about, I mean, it kind of started out with the firearm thing, but you've gotten more vocal about your political, believes too, and you're still working. I mean, you're still in the industry. I think I credit that to working, I work independently, but I also do work with a company, and I worked with them pretty consistently. And I think it has a lot to do with crediting them, and they're openness. I think I always go back to they knew me before, firearms became a thing in my world. So I think they already had gained that kind of respect for me as a person. So it kind of that supersedes whatever differences we might have politically. But I think honestly, that's the key. I will say a 100% on the acting side of things. Once I became more open and vocal, especially on social media and I unfortunately made the mistake of having my agents be Friends on social media. It wasn't the best career move probably, but there was definitely I could feel the sort of unspoken, oh, we're just going to put her over there. But on the behind the scenes, when I do more of the producing line producing accounting stuff, that world, I think those folks, they have known me before any of this. They don't care. Now I also at the same time, I like to think that at least carry myself well on social media and I might have strong opinions, but I also, I'm not so hard headed that I'm not willing to have a discussion for sure. So I think that's also makes a difference. And how you do it. And I think like old school acting, like when you had to rely on agents to find your jobs, casting the casting process and all of that. I mean, like we're kind of in a day and age now that it does cater a little bit more to those who lean more conservative, especially if you are going to come out as like pro firearm or pro one of these other conservative beliefs. It's like, there are other avenues now when there's back then you had to rely on, I guess, the Hollywood machine to get jobs, but now you can create your own content. There's so many platforms that you can do. You don't have to just rely on that and then you're seeing other things like gun TV. That's how we get each other. Whoever thought that we would get to do what we wanted to do. It was the best job in front of the camera and hosting and being in that space, but actually get to talk about the things that we love. And be ourselves. And so I just think it goes to show like where we've come and where the industry has come because now you can just be like, well, it's fine. You don't accept me. I don't have to be a little go do my own thing and fulfill the artistic creative side. And as you build relationships and your relationships are basically how you get future work. So once those relationships are established, it doesn't really matter who you are, what you say publicly. I mean, it does matter, I guess what you say publicly, but if you can mind yourself well and you don't misrepresent anything. Like I feel like people want to work with you. Yeah, ultimately at the end of the day and you guys doing this, obviously you know it's the production world as well. You spend a lot of time with the people that you do, we work with in production, you want to make sure that you like being around them. That's what it comes down to. Because it makes for a very long time. If you don't really have that connection with somebody. And I think, you know, I think more and more, maybe social media allowed us to be more open. I mean, I remember growing up and before social media became a thing. And nobody talked about politics. That was just not a conversation that you have. And it wasn't as overtly hostile if you didn't agree with somebody. You could agree to disagree and just move on. Yes. And I think that's, I hope we can get back to that place. Again, where we can still be friends. I mean, look, I have a lot of people that I know and entertainment, unfortunately, that maybe not only don't agree with me, but they're so hard lined about that, that I've lost friends. And it's unfortunate. I mean, I have people that I thought I was very close to, and I'd go and I look, and I'm like, oh, great, they unfriended me. For whatever reason. Something that they didn't like. And it's like, that's just so sad. It's really, it's just like, come on. Yeah. And maybe in the beginning, it might have bothered me a little bit because of course, everybody wants to be accepted for who they are. Like nobody wants to feel like they're, you know, they're being dismissed or anything to that effect. But I think at the end of the day, you know, you have to be true to who you are. And even if that means a losing people, I mean, there's people that have lost touch with family members because they don't agree on things. I like to think that a lot of us on the conservative right don't behave that way. We're much more open to at least having that discussion or like you saying, agree to disagree. It's fine. We can be very, you know, we can be very easygoing about it. But I unfortunately, I don't feel like we always get that in return. No, I don't think I've ever unfriended somebody on social media. If I don't like your post or I don't like, I can completely hold my own opinion and disagree, but I've never unfriended them. I'm like free to be you. I'll scroll on past it. Exactly. We don't agree. It doesn't mean anything, but like you, I mean, I've lost lots of friends over my stances on things and so be it because that I've gained a lot of friends that are even stronger friendships from, you know, just beat me and not worry about it. And I think too, I mean, I like to think that a lot of people that I've been sort of Friends with over time. I've seen even their opinions change on things based on current events where they might have thought or said something. And one situation, and then you know, I kind of stay out of it. I let them, like you said, you be you. And then all of a sudden, something happens that they go, oh, well, maybe I do think differently. I mean, I know like when I was in New York, basically when they were having a lot of the riot situation, people that I knew that were very anti gun were suddenly calling me going, you know what? I'm rethinking this. I'm seeing that the police that response times are not there. I'm fearful for my family. I want to be able to do something for myself. And now all of a sudden, they're having a completely different perspective. And I think that we will start to see more and more of that. I know, even with the recent shooting, that's a great, unfortunately, these life events that are occurring, these stories that are making national news, their heartbreaking, but at the same time, I think we are learning a lot from them and people's opinions and attitudes are changing because of that. Well, that's actually what we wanted to talk to you about today. So we had a guest on last week. We had great stinchfield on and we were talking with him about what just happened with the Greenwood mall shooting and really wanted to get your perspective as a firearm instructor about how I mean, this is happening more and more. We're hearing about it. While it did happen in the past, like, I don't know if we just hearing all the time about it unless it was like a school shooting, but now it just seems like we're hearing more and more about it and we're getting more women that are coming to us and they're a little bit more fearful or wanting to start being more prepared when they leave their house. How is that changing your training? I kind of want to talk about because this is such an unbelievable case study here on this guy. We're talking about a guy 22 years old who pulled out a handgun and in 15 seconds
