“Si vis pacem, para bellum” is Latin for, “If you want peace, prepare for war”. As the Professor walked the floor of the SHOT Show 2023, that was the theme he had in mind. We will consider just why you should para bellum / prepare for war.

The man accused of gunning down 11 people and wounding nine others in Monterey Park, California had been stockpiling ammunition and was making homemade gun silencers inside his home, authorities revealed Monday.
Law enforcement officers and federal agents executed a search warrant at Huu Can Tran’s mobile home inside a gated senior community in Hemet, roughly 85 miles southeast of Monterey Park, Sunday evening.
Inside, investigators found a .308 caliber rifle, items indicating he was manufacturing homemade firearm suppressors, “numerous electronic devices” including cell phones and computers, and unknown amount of .308 and 9mm caliber ammunition, Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said at news conference.
Sī vīs pācem, parā bellum (Classical Latin: [siː wiːs ˈpaːkẽː ˈparaː ˈbɛllũː]) is a Latin adage translated as “If you want peace, prepare for war”.
The phrase Si vis pacem, para bellum is adapted from a statement found in Latin author Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus’s tract Dē Rē Mīlitārī (fourth or fifth century AD), in which the actual phrasing is Igitur quī dēsīderat pācem, præparet bellum (“Therefore let him who desires peace prepare for war.”).
The idea which it conveys also appears in earlier works such as Plato’s Nomoi (Laws) and the Chinese Shi Ji. The phrase presents the insight that the conditions of peace are often preserved by a readiness to make war when necessitated.
