The George Soroses and Chicago mayors of the world – the people who don’t want ordinary people to even own defensive firearms – have phalanxes of bodyguards. Us po’ folks are on our own. We have to be our own bodyguards, for ourselves and our loved ones.
It follows that we could benefit from knowing what bodyguards know. The leading private sector bodyguard school has long been ESI, Executive Security International, founded and still led by Bob Duggan.
ESI is hosting a seminar on the weekend of August 6 and 7, 2011 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Attendees will hear from Elijah Shaw, who provides protective services to a constellation of stars and celebrities. What he knows would be invaluable to any stalking or harassment victim, or anyone protecting such a potential victim.
Security in the wake of natural disasters is a concern much on point today, and Chris Parkerson specializes in that. He’ll be lecturing at the event also, as part of a roundtable that will include Craig Gundry of Critical Intervention Services, and David Dick, who Duggan points out “was a First Responder at 9/11, Japan’s Tsunami and the Joplin, MO tornado.”
Daniel Johnson specializes in preventing and dealing with extortion, kidnapping, and even piracy. He and his team have had a part in resolving more than a hundred such events around the world. He’ll be teaching, along with security expert Pete Dordal. I’ll be lecturing on things to watch out for in the legal aftermath of using force to protect others.

Ironically, due to Caesar’s Palace policy, only the hotel’s security will be allowed to possess firearms there. Helping to offset that is an extremely cost-effective tuition for the two-day seminar, only $300, and a $50 discount for those attending for the first time.
