Jeff Cooper on Crime


November 1993--"Fight back! Whenever you are offered violence, fight back! The aggressor does not fear the law, so he must be taught to fear you. Whatever the risk, and at whatever the cost, fight back!"

Lt. Colonel Jeff Cooper was and still is an amazing source of wisdom. I never had the opportunity to meet him, or to train at Gunsite, but I wish I had on the former and hope to do so on the latter. I am a 34 year old former Marine, and can say that Colonel Cooper had a dramatic and lasting effect on my life. Not because he was a warrior, but because he was an intellectual who led a full life. Semper Fidelis Colonel Cooper, I look forward to patrolling with you in the next life.

Any day I can quote Jeff Cooper is a good day in my eyes. No one has put so eloquently, so often, the need for each man and woman to take personal responsibility for their safety and their actions.
