11 yr old Son Shoots Mother’s Attacker

From The Truth About Guns:

Authorities say a domestic abuser forced entry in a hotel room where the young man and his mom were staying at about 11 p.m. From there, the big, bad wolf began beating and strangling Lil’ Red Riding Hood.

While the mom couldn’t reach the gun as she endured the beat-down, the 11-year-old could. He did so. And he took care of business.

Firearms Training And Its Sub Categories

From Ammoland:

… there are multiple disciplines within the firearms training and shooting world. Each discipline is unique unto itself. Sometimes the ‘colors’ (techniques and/or procedures) bleed or blend from one discipline into another, and sometimes they are polar opposites. Irrespective of any carryovers that exist, context absolutely matters.

The War Over The Second Amendment

From Zero Hedge:

Thomas Jefferson in particular was vehemently opposed to a standing federal army. Like the rest of the Founders, he believed it was the responsibility of a citizens militia of ordinary Americans to defend their state, or in the rarest of circumstances, the entire country from an outside threat. He also made it clear that an armed citizenry was the best defense against government tyranny. As president, Jefferson slashed military spending. He noted, “Standing armies [are] inconsistent with [a people’s] freedom and subversive of their quiet.” In 1789, the author of the Declaration of Independence wrote, “There are instruments so dangerous to the rights of the nation and which place them so totally at the mercy of their governors….Such an instrument is a standing army.” No wonder he’s now a hopeless dead White “racist.”

You Are Responsible For Your Own Safety

From Ammoland:

In Pittsburgh, police staffing shortages are currently so critical that the Department has just announced its officers will no longer respond to calls involving theft, harassment, criminal mischief, burglary, etc, during the hours of three to seven am. That time gap is, of course, already expanding as staffing continues to decline and will soon embrace the entire day.

In plain English, police officers will not be arriving as a result of any call from a City resident unless shots are being fired and there are dead bodies lying around!

The Answer To Terrorism Is More Armed Citizens

From Ammoland:

Wray’s warning, however, was dire. He told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that known or suspected terrorists were infiltrating the country across the wide-open southern border using counterfeit documents. One of the smuggling networks, he said, has ties to ISIS. Add to this the thousands of unknown border crossers from countries that hate us and the more than 80,000 military-age males from China, and you have a terrorist hellbroth just waiting to bubble over.

We should thank Director Wray for his timely information and for his candor. This is precisely why we have fought so long and so hard to restore our Second Amendment rights so that law-abiding Americans no longer have to bend a knee and beg the Crown to sell them back their constitutional rights in the form of a permit to carry defensive arms. Constitutional carry levels the playing field, making it easier for the good guys and gals to lawfully carry arms.

Haiti Proves How Fragile Civilization Is

From The Truth About Guns:

Haiti hasn’t always been a completely disorganized craphole. For now though, the Caribbean island nation shows us a real-time example of just how the veneer of civilization is thinner than most people think. With a bona fide cannibal gang leader now in charge, thugs with guns are the law. Given the very unstable nature of daily life, how long will it take for a massive flotilla of boats full of illiterate Haitians to head for America?

The landmark decision is poised to be signed into law by Governor Jeff Landry (R), who has vocally supported the measure, emphasizing that it aligns with the constitutional right to bear arms without government permission.

More Reasons To Kill NFA and GCA

From The Truth About Guns:

Really, the laws banning and heavily restricting machine guns are pointless and arbitrary when both citizens and cops can’t tell the difference between rapid semi-auto fire and machine gun fire. The lives lost to no-knock raids are likewise a bigger drain on society than any criminal justice gains. On top of all that, the NFA and the GCA don’t comply with the NYSRPA v. Bruen decision.

Security For Houses of Worship

From Tactical Wire:

A true or genuine Church/Synagogue Security program must be deliberately organized and coordinated to have any hope of being an effective deterrent or solution to an attack on the innocent people inside.

We cannot just expect that off-duty police officers or CCW permit holders who happen to be members of the flock are going to assume the mantle of security just because we would like them to do so. Security must be deliberate and purposeful, not an afterthought, if it is going to be of any use.

Guns Are The Next Best Thing To Utopian Pacifism

From Townhall:

Wands are fiction but you can imagine a gun-free world—just think back to pre-gun times. What you get is Genghis Kahn with rampaging hordes, Julius Caesar and Roman Legion crucifixions, Vlad the Impaler, universal serfdom and endless millions horribly murdered. A gun-filled world paradoxically turns out to be more civilized, with safer neighborhoods—even though evil people and government tyrants rampage constantly. Our guns help control them.
