In General

This, friends, is the way we want every armed robber to end up. Here we see Daniel Gaskey, a Texas firefighter and inactive Marine (there's no such thing as a "former Marine", as my USMC combat-veteran pop and grandpa always say) definitely practiced Active Self Protection to protect himself and everyone else in the store! I would say the people of Midlothian, TX have a special guy working for them, wouldn't you?

This "Best of ASP" narrated video first appeared on our website in July 2015!

Original video and news story available here:

A transitional space is any location that (1) allows attackers to prey on potential victims with an element of surprise and (2) provides ready escape for the attackers. Since convenience stores are transitional spaces, we must be more vigilant when in convenience stores to be ready to protect ourselves.
