How To Build A First Aid Kit

From Recoil:

Deciding what to carry in a medical kit is highly dependent on anticipating the injuries and illnesses you may encounter in a given situation. It’s also dependent on the space available for your gear. After all, the space available when partaking in outdoor activities off the beaten path can be quite limited. You must eliminate unnecessary items so that you can carry other essentials. If you carry a gunshot trauma kit on your person or in a range bag, it’s even more essential that the contents remain compact and free of clutter from unnecessary items.

From JB Herren at Old School Gun School:

Reliable information can be difficult to find.  Here is an update on the November 26th shooting outside an elementary school in Vancouver, WA.

Making New Laws Is Not The Answer

From Reason.com:

Adding its voice to the growing chorus demanding stronger laws targeting politically motivated violence, the FBI Agents Association called on Congress to make domestic terrorism a federal crime. The members of this chorus are, to various degrees, sincere, panicked, and self-serving, but they all have something in common: they’re advocating a very bad idea that’s bound to threaten liberty more than it hampers terrorists.

When To Introduce Guns

From Guns.com:

Working in the gun industry, people often ask me when they should introduce their kids to guns. What I’ve learned over the years teaching my own kids about the subject is that it’s different for every child. Through trial and error, I found that certain lessons help more than others. While introducing shooting to kids early helps, so does taking incremental steps so they learn and appreciate the sport.

Brit Has Gun License Removed For Online Comments

From NRA:

In 2016, UK shooter and popular YouTube gun channel personality Callum Long-Collins told the BBC, “Being British and a firearms owner, it almost feels illegal to have any sort of opinion on using guns for self-defense.” The comments appear to have been proved correct. According to an April 23 article in The Times titled, “Gun licences stripped from shooting activist over YouTube comments,” Long-Collins told the publication that he lost an appeal to have his firearms licenses reinstated with the primary reason being the content of his YouTube page, EnglishShooting.

When Laws Fail, Create More Laws

From The Truth About Guns:

Whenever the massive, expensive, inefficient, rights-impinging jobs programs that operate this country’s gun control bureaucracies fail, the solution is always to enact still more restrictions on law-abiding gun owners. So the Illinois State Police’s failure in issuing the Aurora shooter (a felon) a FOID card now means the rest of the state’s gun owners will have even more hurdles to jump in order to keep and bear arms. Same as it ever was.

Gun Owners Should Know First Aid

From Guns.com:

“No one is immune to the possibility of something bad happening,” Dr. Alton told Guns.com. “It just makes common sense to have some ability to deal with the injuries that might happen in times of trouble.”

Despite ample training opportunities available through various organizations in the U.S., many gun owners simply aren’t qualified to handle even the most basic first aid needs. From injuries accrued due to slide bite or jagged metal gun parts to the most serious in the form of gunshot wounds, Dr. Alton emphasized the need for gun owners to move past normalcy bias, realize that the potential dangers they face each and every day and ready themselves by taking part in medical training.

Gun Control And Red Flag Laws

From St. George News:

Two firearms-related tragedies have taken place in the past week. One is a matter of intense media focus while the other is being downplayed.

It’s a revealing example of the kind of statist blind faith that encourages true believers to trust the authorities to protect them even as it makes it as difficult and expensive as possible for the law-abiding to protect themselves. We’re supposed to believe that if enough people are willing to give up their freedom and the primary responsibility for their own personal safety, bad things will cease to happen.

Someone is trying to sell us a box of rocks.

With the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh a week ago, it’s clear that not every house of worship has gotten the memo.
