Predators only understand violence: either accept it or return the favor.


Rick Ector

Rick Ector's passion is empowering law-abiding citizens with the knowledge, the skills, and the mindset necessary to defend themselves, their families, and their homes from the attacks of violent criminals. There is nothing more sacred than feeling safe and secure in one's person. In some cases, he assists his students with their goal of reclaiming that state of mind after being subjected to a brutal robbery, a rape, a carjacking, or a home-invasion. For the others, he helped them to get ready and to prepare for the worse imaginable event - a violent assault - that can occur at any moment and location. He became a National Rifle Association (NRA) credentialed Firearms Trainer after being robbed in his own backyard by two armed thugs. He has first-hand experiences about being violated from dangerous criminals. Additionally, he enrolled in a variety of self-defense courses and eventually applied for a Michigan Concealed Pistol License. After legally carrying a concealed pistol, he became interested in gun rights advocacy. The right to keep and bear a firearm, especially for personal protection, became very important to me. As such, he created a blog entitled, "Legally Armed In Detroit," in which the topics are focused on gun rights, responsible firearm ownership, and personal protection. His blog, currently over 1,800 posts, has generated a steady stream of local, regional, national, and international media coverage. His greatest personal achievement was being named the 2014 Michigan Coalition of Responsible Gun Owners' (MCRGO) "Gun Advocate of the Year." His current mission is to share a message on gun rights, personal responsibility, and freedom to more audiences. As such, he has focused on accepting more public speaking engagements. His highlight, thus far, was serving as the Keynote Speaker for the 2014 Second Amendment March on the steps of the Michigan Capitol Building. If you have a speaking opportunity, please contact him.
