Out of the Blue

After a few days using those belly belts to control the Gunnar-man's marking have been successful at keeping him from peeing on the stove, though it's not for lack of trying: Leaving him to his own devices results in a wet "diaper" every time. I'm hopeful that he will eventually grow weary of failing to mark the stove and/or walking around in a soggy belly belt, but so far that's not the case, and with his remarkable adaptability, this may never happen, but at least we have the mess under control for the moment, and that adaptability is showing through in just how little he is bothered by having to wear it.

You shoot with cops all the time and you've never encountered the sheepdog analogy? You're either full of it or you shoot with Barney Fife. That analogy is so common among LEOs that to not hear it ever means you're not talking to LEOs. Hell, I know many civilians that consider themselves sheepdogs because they would jump in to help even though others wouldn't.

No, you have misread and inserted words that were not there. Hearing of a theory and subscribing to it are two different things. I've heard of it, I don't subscribe to it and in my experience with cops and soldiers, many others do not as well.

I'm not even going to attempt to respond to the argument against carrying a gun. You can believe what you like, it doesn't bother me one bit until you try to push your ideology on me.

Good because I didn't make any argument against carrying a gun, I said I don't think civilians being armed is a good idea as some sort of solution to violent confrontations in public places. No one pushed any ideology on you. I believe in (and exercise) the right to carry arms, I do not believe carrying arms is necessarily a solution to every problem, even violent ones.
