For widespread distribution, more cutting-edge commentary from Matt Bracken, former SEAL and
author of the Enemies Foreign and Domestic trilogy, along with his most recent novel, Castigo Cay:
Dear Mr. Security Agent,
Federal, state, or local. You, the man or woman with the badge, the sworn LEO or FLEA and those
who inhabit the many law enforcement niches in between and on all sides. This essay is directed to
you, because in the end, how this turmoil about gun control turns out will depend largely upon your
decisions and actions over the coming months and years.
I sincerely wish that members of Congress—who may soon be voting on new gun control measures—
would read this essay, but I realize that’s a pipe dream, considering the impenetrable bubbles around
those exalted entities. So I’ll settle for you, Mr. (or Ms.) Security Agent, since you already gobble
up everything on the internet, and I don’t have to seek you out.
