Personal news from each participant (when you are done with your segment please ask the next person what has been up with them)

 

John – I arrived home late Sunday from Dallas where I attended the NRA Annual Meeting. Unlike the SHOT Show, the Annual Meeting is more about people than product. I saw a lot of old friends who I’ve met over the years and I made some new ones. Liston Matthews – he has been on the show before – and I roomed together. On Saturday night, we attended Cinco de Bane-O or Michael Bane’s birthday party. I met more than one person there who was a listener of the show! Finally, I’d like to thank Gila and Marty Hayes of ACLDN for their kindness in letting me store my luggage in their booth on Sunday before I had to leave for the airport.

Gun Quotes

From Donald J Trump, President:

In America, we trust the people to be wise and good. We trust them to take responsibility for themselves, their families, and their communities. And that is why in America, we have always trusted the people to bear arms.”

A Florida man used his concealed firearm to protect himself from a late-night car-jacker. Witnesses say that the CCW holder used his firearm after the attacker punched him in the face. The attack took place in a parking lot in Orlando. The victim was about to enter the premises when he was approached and attacked by the car-jacker. When police arrived, they found the attacker unresponsive at the scene. They have not disclosed whether the victim will face charges for defending himself.

Memphis police are searching for a man who attempted an armed robbery in broad daylight outside their home, after a woman used her firearm to stop the incident. The victims reported that a man asked them if he could use their phone, and then asked for a ride, before pulling a gun on them. The woman observed the incident and came from her home with her handgun, firing a warning shot. The video shows all too well how confusing and spontaneous these situations can be. Police are using the family’s home surveillance video to identify the attacker.

When two men tried to rob his store Friday morning, a pawn shop clerk in Bountiful, Utah,  hid for a moment before shooting and killing one of the suspects who pointed a gun at him, authorities said. Bountiful Police reviewed the store’s video footage and then said that the clerk was “obviously defending himself”. When the two armed robbers entered the store, the clerk retreated to a small room, drawing his concealed firearm. When one of the attackers followed him there, the clerk used the firearm to defend himself. The attacker was still able to grapple with the clerk, before succumbing to the defensive gunshots.

When a home invasion took place at 4.30 in the morning, a 70-year grandmother Maxine Thompson used her late mother’s handgun to chase the intruder out of her home. Despite security lights and alarms, and shouted warnings, the invader broke a window and entered the home. It was then that the grandmother Thompson, who lives alone, opened fire. She said, “At first I thought I was dreaming, but the banging continues.. I yelled ‘get off my door’..’when I shot at him, he turned and ran, so I ran down the stairs after him and shot some more..I hope I sent him and the rest of them a lesson  ‘get the hell out of peoples’ houses’ “. The 43 year old intruder is in hospital. To quote The Freshmen from 1968: “Go granny, GO!”

San Antonio, Texas

A 33-year-old woman called 911 at 4:30 AM telling them that she had just shot a man in a room at a San Antonio Motel 6.

By the time officers arrived, he was gone.

She told them that her ex-boyfriend had recently gotten out of prison and had shown up earlier in the evening and caused a disturbance.

She had thought he had left, but when she opened the door to go do laundry, he suddenly forced his way in.

He pulled a knife and attempted to sexually assault her.  She responded by shooting him.

A few minutes later, another 911 call was received directing them to a nearby 7-Eleven.

They found the man suffering from two gunshot wounds in the back seat of a SUV.

They detailed and questioned the woman who had driven him to the store and meanwhile at the motel the woman who shot him was questioned.

It was too early to tell if her self-defense claim will hold up.

Limestone County, Texas

Laura Williams was awakened by the ringing of the doorbell.  Williams went to the door and answered it. The man at the door had a shovel and asked for a lady’s name to which she replied that he had the wrong address, there was no one there by that name.

He left but Williams felt uncomfortable.

She looked out her window and could see him standing at the opening to the woods with the shovel and looking back at her home.

She woke her daughter and rounded up the dogs and went to her bedroom.

As soon as she got the door shut, he was back, kicking in the front door and hitting it with the shovel.

Williams pulled her revolver out of the nightstand and confronted the man in the living room.  At the same time, her daughter was calling 911.

She took aim and told him, “if you take one more step I’ll kill you.”

He mumbled something then turned to leave.  As he walked through the door, he stopped and told her, “Well, all y’all need to know is y’all need to leave me the F alone.”

Deputies arrived 14 minutes later and found the man in a nearby trailer park.

Maple Valley, Washington

It was 8:30 PM when 2 cars pulled into the Maple Valley, Washington driveway.  The homeowner noticed them while checking on the animals he owns.

He walked up to them and asked if he could help them.  They said, “Well, I think we have the wrong house.” The homeowner replied, “OK. I could help you.  But I’m sorry, nothing personal, I’m gonna have to take some pictures of you guys.”

He pulled out his cellphone and did just that.  One of the guys took his hat off for the picture.  He also saw one holding a shotgun and cocking it getting ready to shoot.

He tells them, “Don’t do it.  Don’t be stupid.” And starts backing up.  He is also practicing POGO.

As the shotgun wielder opened fire, he ran with his face toward the gunman because he wanted to keep himself between them and his house where his kids were. He exchanged fire with them at the same time.

He credited the trees with saving his life and keeping him uninjured.

His wife called 911 as the cars sped off.

He provided the pictures he took to detectives.

PSP NEWS APRIL 23rd

 

Meanwhile Listeners, the post-Parkland assault on your Second Amendment rights continues…

 

One of the most interesting, and pernicious, tactics that is being revealed on the new assault is that pressure is being put on legitimate gun owners, and gun businesses, through banks and other companies. Most recently, Yeti Coolers dropped their sponsorship of the NRA. Bank of America and Citibank have decided to un-do their business relationships with firearms manufacturers. And when Wells Fargo bank refused to follow suit, the American Federation of Teachers removed their (considerable) resources.

hese techniques represent a new strategy on behalf of the anti-gunners. They simply circumvent the legal process and pressurize their friendly commercial institutions.They have even persuaded Dicks Sporting Goods to destroy their AR-style inventory.

 

And at local levels, they are attempting to shut down the First Amendment rights of gun owners, by pressuring venues to cancel 2A speakers, a technique the Left has uses successfully to prevent Right-leaning guests from speaking on University campuses

 

Listeners, we are in open war with the Left, who would disarm us. The question should be *Why* are they pressing to disarm us and *What* will come when they succeed. And make no mistake. They are winning. Bigly.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Listeners, we all heard of the move by Deerfield Illinois to ban AR-style rifles, and empower their  Police Department to confiscate unsurrendered firearms, backing this up with a $1,000 per day fine.

 

Well, now an IL county is fighting back.

 

Effingham County in Illinois has officially declared itself a “Sanctuary County” for gun owners. The county board passed the Sanctuary County provision two weeks ago, by a margin of 8:1.

 

While admitting the action was largely symbolic, Effingham County State Attorney said that the action will not control decision-making by law enforcement. Nonetheless, that decision directs County employees to “not enforce any new State Law that would unconstitutionally restrict the Second Amendment.

 

Listeners, if Federal and State Law can be flouted by left-wing sympathizer states, cant we please be sympathetic to those who would have our backs?

CDC study confirms over 2 Million annual defensive gun uses… but then goes unpublished.

 

Listeners will recall the complaints (fake news) that the CDC was not allowed to study violence with guns. There was also renewed complaints when recently, the government declared that such work was now to be allowed.

 

What is interesting to ask, is what happened to the work that the CDC was doing on this topic all in the meantime. Well, a recently discovered study shows us.

 

Since the early 90s Florida State faculty member was quoting around two-million DGUs per year. This now appears to be confirmed by the previously missing CDC study. In a CDC study conducted over 1996 thru 1998, approximately 2.5 million DGUs per year are discussed. Florida State criminologist Gary Kleck said that the CDC report confirmed that people use handguns to defend themselves about three-and-a-half times as often as criminals use them.

 

Listeners, let’s think about reasons why CDC never released the report. Why not email us with them?

Hollywood antigun stances backfire.

 

WE are now all-too familiar with Hollywood celebrities sounding off about “Gun Violence” and “Need for Gun Control” while simultaneously shooting their way into and out of trouble with handguns that seemlngly never miss, nor need reloading,

 

Well it seems that this effort may be having the opposite effect – instead of thinking that there should be fewer guns, the Hollywood Effect is increasing support for the Second Amendment.

 

In a recent poll of 898,  twice as many respondents indicated that they would be inclined to oppose the anti-gun Hollywood views as to support it. This view held across all aspects of American Society. 65 % supported “maintaining their constitutional right to bear arms”, whole only 25% who  opposed the 2nd Amendment. Th

 

These finding echoed another poll, where 60% said that the 2nd Amendment was “very” personally meaningful.

 

Listeners, let’s hope that the grass roots are not following the money spent by Bloomberg and associates, but it will still take everyone of us to vote in November.

3- Interview 1 – Steve Denney

 

Paul- I have been through a handgun retention class and one of the major things that anti gun people say is “if you have a gun the criminal will just take it away and use it on you” my take is that if you have training that that just isn’t true, Your thoughts?

 

Belle- I have always considered our Retention class one of the most important classes we teach, second to the Trauma class, I find it difficult to explain to shooters how important classes like this are, because they want to be in those live fire classes. How do you stress the importance to your students who might be on the fence about taking a Retention class?

 

4- Interview 2 – Karen McDonald & Shelley Hill

 

INTRO: APRIL IS CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH SO THE FOCUS WILL BE BASED ON HELPING CHILDREN!

 

Shelley is one of the people behind the Complete Combatant. She and her husband Brian reach firearms, unarmed defense and many other self defense techniques.  She is also the executive director for Racheal’s Rest.

 

Karen McDonald is the founder, president and head counselor of Racheal’s Rest

 

A few great questions to ask Karen  is:

*What is the purpose and goal of RR

*Why did you name it Racheal’s Rest

Belle -*What is your CHILDHOOD background and how does this help you while working w children?

Belle *How is RR different than other CHILDRENS programs that offer overnight retreats?

*Tell us a bit about your CHILDRENS counseling and PLAY THERAPY

 

Paul – is this family based or children only?

.Belle – What has this done for you on your healing journey?

Paul – It’s a little unusual for an organization like Racheal’s Rest to be closely involved with the firearms community Could you talk a little bit about the relationship you have with the complete combatant?

 

5- DGUs  (at beginning) These discussions are NOT legal advice. Some of us are trainers, but this is not formal training and YOU NEED formal training. The Defensive Gun Use segment is intended as information, NOT as training. As always the opinions of the hosts are only their own opinions and not those of any sponsors or other affiliations.

 

Gaffney, South Carolina
Rob- I think this news report is wrong. The attacker had a shotgun as he entered. The defender used her handgun. VV

 

At 3:30 in the morning, Charles “Tiny” Alley started banging on the door of the home of Tim Anthony and his girlfriend.  Alley had bought a car from Anthony a few years ago and had made angry threats about it. He had decided it was time to make good on his threats.

As Anthony, with pistol in hand, cracked the door, Alley and another unidentified man forced their way into the home and started fighting with the homeowner.  The force of the entry left a hole in the wall. .

While the two men were fighting and the intruder threatening harm to other residents, the girlfriend retrieved a shotgun and shot the intruder in the head leaving him dead at the scene.  The accomplice quickly vacated the premises.

The homeowner told the press that “if it wasn’t for her doing what she did, I wouldn’t be standing here right now.”  With a nickname like “Tiny”, it can be assumed that there was a disparity of size between the two men.

20-year-old Tevin Horton walked into the N & A Food Mart armed with a revolver and demanded money from the clerk. The time was 10:40 PM.

The clerk and the criminal briefly struggled and the clerk was able to get away and ran to another area of the store.  The thug was close behind. But that was all the time that he needed to pull his own gun and fired several shots at Horton.

Horton decided to make his exit at this point.

Police brought in the tracking dogs to search for the wanted man in the area but soon heard of a gunshot victim about 2 miles away.

When they arrived, the supposed drive-by shooting victim had wounds on his lower back and buttocks.  Surveillance video and other evidence said otherwise. It put him at the scene of the attempted robbery.

He is now facing charges of armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

Paul- Walhalla, South Carolina

Once again, we are reminded that home invasions happen at all times of the day.

About 1:45 PM, Sheriff’s deputies received a 911 call about an intruder in a home.

When they went to investigate, they found a woman in the home who was armed and had confronted the intruder with her firearm in hand.  The 33-year-old male suspect exited the scene immediately.

Keri Reeves was in fear for her life and said, “This could have been a very different situation had I not been properly armed.”

“I’m one of those people that can go from zero to a hundred in 2.5 seconds and I’m not a nice person normally, but as soon as I got on the phone with the sheriff’s department he was out of sight. The severity of it hit me, and I was in hysterics. I was crying, I was scared, I was very shaken.”

The thief was found walking out of the woods nearby with Reeve’s possessions in hand.

The victim confronted the criminal in court at the bond hearing.  “You came within 2.5 seconds of having a full clip (sic) unloaded into your skull,” she said. “Next time you will have the full clip (sic) unloaded.”

Rob- Albuquerque, New Mexico

Judith Burkhalter and her boyfriend, Carlos Vasquez, found out the home they own but do not live in had been broken into.  The next day the arranged to meet a cleaner at the house and to check out the damage.

The burglar was still in the house and armed when they got there.  He saw them coming and tried to get out but couldn’t find a way out where he wouldn’t be seen.

Vasquez pulled his 9mm pistol as the robber lunged at him with a box cutter.  He dodged the blade and returned the welcome with the barrel to the attackers head.  The then gave him a warning that he would shoot.

The burglar kept up the attack and the homeowner fired his pistol.  The shot hit the target in the butt.

He was due in court two days later but was still under medical care and could show up in court the next day.

Nothing happens by accident in politics. Bad ideas get so much political traction from elected officials. Politician say they want to do the right thing. Unfortunately, what is right for them isn’t necessarily right for us. Look at the issue of murders in school. Experts told us what to do to protect our children, yet progress is painfully slow. We want our children protected while the politician needs to get credit and kickbacks for the solution. That leaves ours children at risk. We see that time after time.

Personal news from each participant (when you are done with your segment please ask the next person what has been up with them)

 

Rob- I’ve had a busy week.  I joined Bill Frady on his Lock and Load Radio program. We talked about Self-Defense Gun Stories.  I was on Steve Pauwels’ Striker Radio to talk about gun culture. I was also on Armed American Radio with Mark Walters, and we talked about the death threats leveled against the women who advocate for self-defense.  Tom Gresham also retweeted one of my blog posts. I carried every day and got to eat breakfast with a traveling firearms instructor.  Thank you, Tracy Thronburg.  How about you, John?

 

John – Congratulations on the retweet. I hope it drove readers to your blog.  I received my media badge for the SHOT Show and Industry Day at the Range as did my wife. It is hard to believe that it starts in little more than a month. I had a nice discussion on training and carry with a client and friend who is a lesbian. Her partner is still wary of firearms and we discussed some of the things to help. Other than that, we’ve just been getting ready for Christmas like everyone else.

 

Gary

 

Amy –  Unfortunately, I have been busy these past few weeks taking care of family emergencies, which is why I have been unable to record the past few podcasts. But, I do want to thank everyone who has reached out to check in with me, and while my family still has a lot to deal with moving forward, I am back at work and making plans to get ready for SHOT show and the rest of 2018.

 

Tracy- I just got back from the MAG-120. This was my most favorite class EVER! We shot double and triple speed qualifications, long gun qualifications, shot the Florida Department of Law Enforcement qualification, got to shoot from a moving vehicle, had a night shoot, performed handgun retention and disarming maneuvers every day, had a 4-hour block of Kubaton (™) instruction on the last day of class, and had great guest instructors. I was also the class champion for the handgun sniper shoot. My STI Trojan ran great. I can’t wait until the MAG-180 in June of next year. I also got to have breakfast with one of my favorite podcasters yesterday. It’s always good to see you, Rob.

 

Belle- Shot an IDPA match in Renton. I did pretty decent. No major mistakes and no gun or ammo issues, for once, thankful for that! Going to try and get out next weekend for another IDPA match. Have to get as much competition as I can before training season starts in the spring and i’m working weekends again.

Rob- CHICAGO COMMISSIONER CALLS FOR THE UN TO HELP SOLVE CITY SHOOTINGS EPIDEMIC

 

We have all heard of the high numbers of gang and drug related shootings that take place in subsections of Chicago. Now, Chicago’s Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin has called for the United Nations to intervene in the city.

 

Commissioner Boykin met recently with the UN’s Assistant Secretary General Oscar Fernandez-Taranco, in New York to discuss the “quiet Genocide” in Chicago’s black community.

 

Saying that “The United Nations has a track record of protecting minority populations” Commissioner Boykin said “we have to do something.. black people make up 30% of the population in Chicago, but 80% of those killed by guns.”

 

When asked if he would welcome foreign troops on the streets of Chicago, Commissioner Boylin replied “I’m talking about whoever the UN would decide to send in.. He may  have some ideas about how we get peace in these communities.”, continuing “We can’t wait for the mayor to put another 1,000 police officers on the streets..”

 

STOP PRESS UPDATE:

Commissioner Boylin confirms that the UN will “accept an invitation” from the city to visit, once a youth violence study is completed.

 

We’d like to know what we think of our cities officials calling for the UN to solve problems here in the USA that those cities’ elected officials seemingly cannot.

John – HOTELS TO BEGIN ELECTRONIC SCANNING FOR CONCEALED FIREARMS

 

Following the recent Las Vegas atrocity, where 59 concertgoers were killed by a murderer shooting from a hotel window, One hotel has decided to use  radar to scan their guests at checkin for the presence of concealed handguns and other firearms.

 

The Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino has deployed a weapon detection device made by the Canadian company PatriotOne Technologies. This technology scans customers without their knowledge or consent. The devices are so small that they can even be installed in hotel room doors.

 

The Chief Operating Officer at the Westgate LAs Vegas, Mr Mark Waltrip, says that the hotel will have a 100% scan rate of all guests in order to “maintain a safe environment”

 

SO, listeners, what are they going to do when Shot Show comes around in January?

Amy- NANCY PELOSI GETS THREE PINOCCHIOS FOR HER REMARKS ON THE NATIONAL RECIPROCITY BILL

 

Following the passing of HR38 through the House, Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi went on record preaching doom, gloom and the end of civilization as we know it over Twitter and other social media platforms.

 

Stating that the new Bill would “invite violent criminals, convicted stalkers and domestic abusers to carry concealed weapons.” Minority Leader Pelosi ranted with demonstrably false and self-contradicting statements.

 

Now, the Washington Post has awarded her three Pinnochios for lack-of-facts. We wonder how many are in her collection.

Belle – THE FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE NEWTOWN ATROCITY

 

The weekend of December 15th marks the 5th anniversary of the murder of 26 pupils and teachers at the Sandyhook Elementary School, in Newtown Connecticut.

 

Everyone knows the story of what happened. Five years later, schools, parents and local authorities still disagree on how to prepare for such events. Many still use it as a source of political gain and activism.

 

Here at the Podcast we hold out our hearts to the grief of those who lost loved ones and to the bravery of the school staff who stood in defense of those children.

Rob- does this bill create any new government departments? Does it give them any new powers not already written into law?

How do you propose to get CC in the deep blue states?

 

Amy – Paul, what specifically (is there any wording) that you would warn our listeners to look for, or read, in this bill that may not necessarily be what we want when it comes to “national reciprocity?” Do we want the “Fix NICS” associated with it at all?

 

John – Rep. Ted Budd, R-13th NC, has a dear colleague letter going around saying that the Fix NICS should be kept separate. Do you think will go anywhere?

 

John – Do you think the Senate will have enough votes to even pass reciprocity with or without Fix NICS?

Rob- Oak Park, Illinois

When armed robberies become common place, you must protect yourself.  In the first 10 months of 2017, Oak Park, Illinois has had 47 reported armed robberies and 40 more unarmed robberies.

A week ago at the 7-Eleven, three people entered the store and at least one of them displayed a weapon.  They were wearing masks or bandanas and demanded cash from the clerk.  The clerk was armed legally and opened fire on the three, leaving one in critical condition laying on the store floor.

Just the previous week, the same store was robbed at gunpoint in the middle of the afternoon.  A man entered the store, showed a small handgun and ordered the cashiers to put money in a bag.  The workers removed $147 from the register, put it in a plastic bag and put the cash on the counter.  The man grabbed the bag and left the store.

In that case, no one got hurt, but that won’t always be the case.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/oak-park/news/ct-oak-park-shooting-20171212-story.html

Gary- The Oak Park police chief and mayor said it was unfortunate that the thief was shot. These government officials did not celebrate that the clerk went home alive. The victim attitude is spreading.

John – Oak Park used to ban handguns just like Chicago.

Rob-

Belle- Mas says you should NEVER apologize for surviving.

 

Amy- Columbia, Missouri

When Levi Strodman’s wife heard a knock at the door, she told him about it.  He grabbed his pistol and went to the door to see who was there.  Of course, we call it POGO.

When he got to the door, the peep hole was obstructed but he thought is was just one of the neighbors having some fun.  He cracked the door open, but it was not a neighbor.  It was an armed intruder.  The thug rushed the door and Strodman fought back and had stopped him when the criminal presented his firearm.

The homeowner lost his footing and fell down the stairs, but as he did, he fired two shots at the would be intruder.  The intruder valued life more than whatever the Strodman’s owned and ran from the scene.

Former prosecutor Bill Tackett commented that it was a textbook case of Missouri’s Castle Doctrine and stand your ground in action.

Under castle doctrine, a homeowner, or someone allowed to be in the home like a babysitter, has the legal right to defend themselves using deadly force when faced with a threatening trespasser. Stand your ground says people no longer have to retreat from danger before shooting in any place where they have a legal right to be.

The homeowner stated he only saw one person but a witness reported to police that they saw two people.

Police brought in a K9 unit to try to track down the suspects.  There was no indication whether the intruder was hit by either of the shots.

Gary – Glenpool, Oklahoma

A Tulsa man attempted to rob a Glenpool convenience store but the tables got turned on him.

Ezell Brown entered the store, pointed a gun at the clerk and told him that he would kill him if he didn’t give him the money.  The clerk did just that.

Gary Adams then grabbed the crook’s gun and a baseball bat and chased Brown outside where he held him until police arrived.

As the clerk kept the robber in place, Brown kept telling him that “I have a gun.”  Adams said, “If you pull a gun, I am going to shoot you with the gun that I have of yours.”

The hapless robber was booked on multiple charges including attempted robbery.

Amy: Rob, do you have any new posts from your SlowFacts blog you want to mention?

 

Rob- Gun owners don’t see themselves as police officers. Most of us don’t even see ourselves as gunfighters.  We see ourselves as defenders. The media still thinks the gun-culture is a mix of TV westerns and video games. In reality, we accumulated 50 million man years of legal concealed carry in the last 10 years. My article is called Not a Gunfighter but a Defender-the changing face of gun-culture..and thank you for carrying.

 

My articles are up at Clash Daily, at Ammoland and at my blog, slow facts dot wordpress dot com.  John, tell us what’s new at your blog no lawyers only guns and money.

 

This is the time of the year where we think about gifting. I suggest that we consider donations to the various non-profit gun rights and gun training organizations.Not only would you be doing something good, you would also get a tax donation.

Belle- MORE ON MARIJUANA…

 

We recently reported that three states have begun to move against firearms ownership among medical marijuana holders.

 

Since then, there have been additional developments. After public outcry, Honolulu Police Department has begin to review its policy of confiscation and may have reversed it altogether.

 

However as of now, twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia have laws “broadly legalizing” marijuana use in one form or another. Legal gun owners in each of these states remain at risk of having their firearms confiscated as a consequence of their having a marijuana card from their home state, because as of now, marijuana use remains illlegal under federal aww. Ohio for example, just joined the list of States letting people know that MJ and firearms don’t mix.

Rob- FBI AND AFT COOPERATE ON GUN CONFISCATIONS

 

A little known aspect of the NICS process is that if a report fails to come back with a clean “Yes / No” decision within three days, then the FFL is at liberty to release the firearm(s), at their own discretion.

 

The Law that established the NICS system, specifically prohibited the background check from being used as a “system of registration of firearms, firearms owners, or firearms transactions…”

 

Now, a report in USA Today reveals that FBI and ATF are working together to confiscate 4,000 firearms from people who were sold them after the 72 hour period expired with no NICS result, but who turned out to have been a “no”.

 

This presents a huge dilemma for legal gun owners. Is it better to have 4,000 guns removed from those who would have been denied them? Or, is it worse to have the NICS system being used as the registry it was specifically precluded from being?

John- US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES PASSES NATIONAL RECIPROCITY

 

In what can only be considered as a huge victory for gun rights and restoration of 2nd Amendment rights for legal gun owners everywhere, the House of representatives passed the National Concealed Carry bill last Wednesday. The action now moves to the Senate.

 

The Bill was merged with the “FixNICS” bill and had an item about “bump stocks” included also. This is designed to make it easier to pass the Senate because while FixNICS is thought to be an easy pass there alone, it would be much harder to pass National Reciprocity there as an independent bill.

 

We should all watch carefully as anti-gun Senators on *both* sides of the house work hard and long to re-separate these two Bills in order to quash Reciprocity. If National Reciprocity fails in the Senate, then millions of Americans will continue to live under the oppression of their States’ anti-gun laws. Contact your Senators to let them know that you want National Reciprocity passed, even if it is merged with this FixNICS Bill.

Gary- GOOD NEWS FOR DELAWARE RESIDENTS

 

The Delaware Supreme Court recently ruled that it was legal for residents of that tiny State to carry their protective firearms in State Parks and Forests.

 

The decision lists almost 150 pages of opinion and dissent regarding the 2nd Amendment, and is interesting reading for sure. However in the end it was decided not on firearms precedent, but as a case of administrative over-reach.

 

The key sentences are: “We are asked whether unelected officials…., whose power is expressly limited, can ban…the possession of guns in state parks and forests in contravention of ….the State’s constitution. Clearly they cannot. They lack such authority because they may not pass unconstitutional laws…. As such, the regulations are unconstitutional on their face

 

This is good news for Delawarians, but it also sets an interesting precedent for those of us concerned about the “Any Federal Agency” broad ned set forth in the upcoming FixNICS legislation

Belle- POLICE CHIEF IN OHIO CALLS FOR NATIONAL CONCEALED CARRY RECIPROCITY

 

We have all been following the National CCW reciprocity legislation move through the house and to the Senate, with considerable excitement. Now, one Police Chief says – “It’s about time!”

 

Police Chief Dennis Murphy, of Gahanna, Ohio, writing his opinion for Fox News, said that gun owners are always worried that they will break a law someplace without realizing it, and the varied and ever-changing picture of state-state reciprocity makes this more likely.

 

He supports National Reciprocity as a way to end the confusion, anxiety and expense that accompanies trying to exercise one’s Constitutional right to self defense while traveling. It will also bring an end to Paul’s “disarmament dance”. This is particularly important because criminals do not pay attention to the law anyway.

 

He concludes by saying.. “I fully support the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act and encourage all gun owners to do the same.. It’s time for Congress to protect our rights.

 

Like Chief Murphy, we here encourage all our listeners to contact their Senators and let them know you want them to vote *for* this Act.

Belle-Sterling Heights, MI

A Sterling Heights Michigan woman took her dog for a walk outside her apartment complex in the 15 Mile – Van Dyke area on a recent Sunday evening.  As she walked she got a sinking feeling about a black van sitting running.

She noticed a man get out of the van on the other side of the street and start walking down that side of the street in the same direction she was walking.  She is a CPL holder and put her hand on her gun which was concealed under her jacket.

As she reached the end of the street, she lost sight of the man but a minute later, he was coming toward her.

He grabbed the back of her jacket and tried to grab her and pulled her towards her.

She put the gun into the suspect’s stomach and said, “I don’t want to kill you.”

The man appeared shocked and quickly retreated.

Officials were still investigating and have increased patrols of the area.

John – Ellport, PA


84 year old Don Lutz sleeps with a loaded pistol under his pillow.  Last Friday morning, he made use of it.

At 1:10 AM Mr Lutz woke to the sound of breaking glass.  Carrying his .380 pistol down the hallway, he was confronted by two men.  He ran into one face-to-face and the man grabbed him.

The Korean War vet who spend 16 months on the front lines, shot his attacker.  He and the second intruder then scuffled with the homeowner on the kitchen floor when the wounded intruder rolled over succumbing to his wound.  He was described as a 35 to 45 year old white male weighing close to 300 pounds.  He was unarmed and wearing rubber gloves.  He had not yet been identified.

The second criminal ran out the front door.  Mr Lutz then called the police.

The gunshot was went through the dead man and the police could not find the bullet.  They are looking for the second suspect and are guessing that he has the .380 slug in him.

Based on Pennsylvania’s Castle Doctrine and Self-defense, he will not be charged.

Carlos Molina took his family out for dinner at a local Popeye’s. At about 8:30, 19-year-old Andres Herrera walked into the restaurant with the intent of leaving with as much money as he could.

The teen thug demanded money from the 32-year-old father, to which Molina replied that he had spent all his money on dinner for the family.  He then asked the robber to let his family go.

Most of the family left but two of the children were in the restroom.  When the kids exited the restroom, Herrara pointed his gun at them. It proved to be a fatal decision.  Molina was licensed to carry and shot him several times.

San Antonio Police Captain Michael Starnes said that he will not face charges and that “he really saved the day and protected a lot of people” by his actions.

Twitter users were applauding the good guy with a gun saving lives.

Gary – Baton Rouge, LA

When Caesar Ray’s daughter’s car alarm went off in the middle of the night while they were working on their home which had flooded.  At bout that same time, a neighbor called to inform them that she had seen a man loitering around their house.

He has law enforcement training and has worked for the Louisiana Department of Corrections.  He met Roberto Garcia in his front yard.  He handcuffed the burglar and held him at gunpoint until police arrived and broadcast the entire event on Facebook Live.

Ray could be heard telling Garcia, “You tried to break into the wrong damn house.  You stay where you are located right there.  Don’t move. Who are you here with?”

Garcia answered no questions and was hauled off to jail where he was booked on charges of auto burglary and attempted burglary of an inhabited building and held on $20,000 bond.

Ray urged other people not to do what he did unless they have law enforcement experience.  “Be vigilant. Continue to be observant, especially when you are coming home.  Before you just pull in your driveway, look around and don’t just jump out of your vehicle.”

(ROB- this was poorly written)

Paul: Rob, do you have any new posts from your SlowFacts blog you want to mention?

 

Rob-  https://slowfacts.wordpress.com/2017/12/08/im-fed-up-with-bigotry-against-concealed-carriers/

I am tired of being treated like a second-class citizen. Anti-gun Democrat politicians claim licensed concealed carry holders are dangerous. These bigoted politicians even say recognizing concealed carry permits will give criminals guns. These politicians said licensed gun owners should be put in prison for years.

The Democrat elites are wrong about us.

 

My articles are up at Clash Daily, at Ammoland and at my blog, slow facts dot wordpress dot com.  John, tell us what’s new at your blog no lawyers only guns and money.

 

I put up a post this morning speculating about the chances that the Senate will pass national concealed carry reciprocity. Given the filibuster, it is 50-50 at best. The only hope is that some of the Red State Democrats will be pressured into supporting it if they want to be reelected. Unfortunately, I am seeing the hardening of the anti-gun position in the Democratic Party. Looking back at the 2011 vote in the House passing reciprocity, 43 Democrats voted for it. Now only 6 voted for it and 13 who had previously supported it voted against it this time. This is not good news.

 

That and more is at only guns and money dot blogspot dot com.

Rob- I want a roll-call vote. Let us find out who is actually for armed citizens.

Personal news from each participant 

Rob- Bill Frady and I talked about Self-Defense Gun Stories.  That was on his Lock and Load Radio program. I released another Episode of Self-Defense Gun Stories and had Tony Simon as my co-host. Lots of my instructors are having internet problems and I’m having recording problems. Fortunately I have paper books to read, like Ken Murrey’s Learning at the Speed of Life.

 

John -I installed my new Liberty handgun safe in our bedroom this week. Even though we don’t have young children, there will be times when my granddaughter Olivia and her yet to be named little sister will be visiting. Other than that, Barb took Olivia to Disney on Ice this weekend and we also took in a small town Christmas parade. Olivia get more candy there than at Halloween.

Rob( John, I have the Liberty HD100. You?) HD-300

Rob- Ah, the doublewide.

 

Gary

 

Tracy – I had the pleasure of having lunch yesterday with our good friend (and official physician of the Polite Society Podcast), Dr. John Edeen. He and I are shooting the MAG-120 next week in Live Oak, Florida. We ate jaegerschnitzel and made plans for next week. I feel grossly unprepared for the class, as I have spent the majority of the past two weeks giving personal instruction. Everyone, wish us luck!

 

Belle – Marty will be joining you in Florida, Tracy. He’s been getting ready today to fly out. Had our annual FAS Staff meeting over the weekend, good to see the whole group together. Everyone is set with their teaching assignments for 2018 and looking forward to the next training season.

Rob- HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE PASSES NATIONAL RECIPROCITY FOR CCW BILL, HR 38

 

After what has seemed like forever since the election of President Trump, the first Bill to promote National Reciprocity of CCW was moved to Committee debate on Wednesday November 28th. The vote was an ironic 19-11 in favor. It will be presented to the House floor for a full vote on Wednesday December 5th in the afternoon. As it currently stands, holders of a permit from “any state” will be able to carry in all states. The current Senate draft of the bill however requires that a permit from one’s home state must be held. As an added benefit, the House Bill also appears to shred magazine capacity laws.

 

Listeners to the show will remember very well the sad case of Shaneen Allen, whose experience after declaring her legal PA concealed firearm to a New Jersey Police officer was horrific; additional  cases involving members of the military and general citizens in places such as New York City are also well known. House Bill 38 is designed to prevent such miscarriages of justice.

 

The debate lasted all day. Amendments were presented to many topics – some related to the Bill and some to the usual talking points (such as “Universal” background checks). Some were minor, while some would have effectively nullified the Bill if it were to become law. Many of the amendments showed an almost complete ignorance of the processes of obtaining a CCW permit in the various States. All of the detrimental amendments were defeated, two (to allow Federal Judges to carry in any state and to allow retired and off-duty Law Enforcement officers to carry in gun-free school zones) did pass. The Bill was recorded as “reported favorably” to the House at 4.54pm

 

The House Rules Committee is expected to issue a rule to send this bill to the floor for a vote on Wednesday, Dec. 6th. The bill to be voted on combines concealed carry reciprocity with the Fix NICS Act passed out of the House Judiciary Committee in the same markup hearings.

 

Listeners are encouraged to contact their House Representatives to encourage them to vote “yes” on this key bill. We need to now look for the parallel bill in the Senate.

 

SOURCE: Live via YouTube.

 

John – Rep. Richard Hudson states that not only those with permits but those who live in constitutional states will also be covered by the bill.

Rob- Bargaining chips.

 

John – The anti’s are geared up. I just saw something put out by Giffords that gives scripts and fill-in the blank letters for calling and writing.

 

—————————————-

John – ARMED CITIZENS STOP THE BAD GUY WITH THEIR GUNS – AGAIN (is this more of a DGU story?)

 

We may not need more data to support the National Reciprocity movement, but we certainly need to get the good stories about CCW holders out to a broader audience.

 

Here is a prime example of the Good Guys doing their work correctly. At 4.30 pm on Saturday November 25th, two legally armed citizens stopped the threat presented by a murderer.

 

The attacker shot two people, killing one and paralyzing another, at which point the two good guys intervened, stopping the attacker with their defensive handguns.

 

If they had not, things could have been much worse. The local Police Chief said: “The attacker had multiple magazines on his person.  He was intent on doing harm. The employees stepped up and prevented customers, employees, and other vendors who were in the business at the time from sustaining further injuries. They did a good job.”

 

In the week when the House may well vote on the National Reciprocity legislation, it’s important to let your State and Federal representatives know that the Good Guys are out there, working for us all, every day.

Belle- MARIJUANA USERS CAN NEITHER BUY, NOR OWN, FIREARMS

 

Some of us will have been aware of a recent clarification from our friends at ATF, regarding the prohibition of medical and recreational marijuana users from owning firearms. The 4473 form has been altered to specifically highlight this drug. This is Federal Law, so it applies across the whole country, including marijuana-liberalized states such as Colorado and Washington, and traditionally gun-friendly states such as Arizona

 

Recently, three states have begun the process of collecting firearms from citizens who have medical marijuana cards. Hawaii,  Florida and Pennsylvania are all issuing notices to gun owning marijuana users that they have to “turn them in”. Of course, to do this, there must be registries of gun ownership and medical MJ use, that can be cross-referenced.

 

We wonder whether this slow creep of state-legalized marijuana use is another part of the progressive long-game to prevent the upcoming generation from being able to own, and perhaps even handle, firearms.

 

We urge listeners to be on the look out for ballot initiatives or the like for the legalization of marijuana in your state and think carefully before voting for them, if you value your gun-rights, and those of the next generation.

 

Rob- All elections have consequences.

John – The only alternative is to remove the prohibition on marijuana from federal law. It actually may be counterproductive to resolving the opioid crisis.

Belle- I gotta agree with John

Gary-

3- Interview 1

William Aprill –

Interpersonal violence- murder suicide

Belle- it’s not a question of not recognizing it as much as it’s being embarrassed or ashamed by what is often perceived as allowing the behavior to occur. As far as “charging in” as Rachel said, this is a thing! I was that girl. I was a victim of the false confidence that made me basically say “try it buddy’ and then got hammered. As far as what Rachel said about asking-sometimes you have to GENTLY ask repeatedly, and ease them into being comfortable with opening up to you and enduring that embarrassment

 

If you want to help, you have to be willing to accept the burden of that-things you think are silly. You have to be willing to let them work through their plan the way that will allow them to follow through.

4- Interview 2

Marty Hayes – ACLDN

Women are prosecuted after they defend themselves from an abusive relationship.

Belle- What advice would you give to avoid this?

To all of you- how can we convince women to do what it takes to help themselves ie: get training?

 

Belle 5- DGUs  (at beginning) These discussions are NOT legal advice. Some of us are trainers, but this is not formal training and YOU NEED formal training. The Defensive Gun Use segment is intended as information, NOT as training. As always the opinions of the hosts are only their own opinions and not those of any sponsors or other affiliations.

 

John- Jacksonville Florida

In June, Michael Turner couldn’t leave well enough alone.  He broke out the window of an apartment in Jacksonville Florida.  The apartment was that of his ex-girlfriend.

Turner had been arrested previously on a felony domestic strangulation charge in 2016.  He strangled then punched his former girlfriend until she lost consciousness.  The charges were later dropped.

Police stated that they received a call about multiple shots fired just before 6 AM.  When they arrived at the apartment, they found the abusive ex-boyfriend dead after receiving multiple gunshot wounds.

Leaders with Hubbard House, an anti-domestic abuse organization, said unfortunately, there are a lot of misconceptions about women in abusive relationships.

Hubbard House CEO Ellen Siler said.”People assume that if the woman will just leave, everything’s going to be OK, and that isn’t always the case,” “There’s ongoing stalking and ongoing threats, so if you’re going to leave, it’s important for you to have a plan to safely leave, which Hubbard House can help you with.”

As of June, this was the 12th domestic related homicide in the Jacksonville in 2017 to that point.

 

Rob- Do you have access to your gun?

 

Tracy- Panola County Mississippi

It has been said that a protection or restraining order is only as strong as the paper that it has been printed on.  It did slow Phyllis Hamm’s estranged husband away.

Just 5 days after the order expired, James Clinton Hamm showed up at the residence they had shared outside Batesville, Mississippi and attempted to enter.  She had locked the door and tried to wedge a jack to keep the door shut.  Mr. Hamm was able to unlock the door then kicked it, which slid the jack out of the way.

As he entered the home, she fired her .22 caliber revolver and fatally injured her estranged late husband.  She had expressed her fear and had issues as part of their divorce in the past including finding a butcher knife stuck in the back porch.

Mrs. Hamm was taken into custody and put on a hold in the county jail pending a decision to indict or not by the Panola County Grand Jury, but she was later released.

Rob- Rachel said it is hard to shoot your ex.

 

Gary- Zephyr Hills Florida

Alejandria Guinn exercised her right to own a firearm and used it to defend herself.  When she was visited by her ex-boyfriend late one night, she had reason to fear for her life.

Frank Harrison has previously threatened to hurt her and when she saw him standing outside her home, armed with an AR style rifle, she had reason to fear for her life.

She scrambled to get her gun then made her way to the front door.  She opened the door and came out shooting.  She managed to end the threat permanently without getting herself shot.

While the police initially determined she had probably acted in self-defense so she wasn’t arrested or charged, they also have not found any records of past injunctions filed by Guinn against Harrison.

 

Tracy – Why did she open the door?

Rob- Get the paperwork.  Call the police.  Make your attacker come to you.

Rob- Eastlake Ohio

When Lake County Ohio Police responded to a call from a distraught woman they found more than just that woman.  They also found the woman’s ex-boyfriend on the floor with a gunshot wound to the leg and a pool of blood surrounding him.

The aggressive ex-boyfriend broke into her home and the woman responded with an equal show of force to end her perceived threat.  The man was transported to the hospital where he later succumbed to the loss of blood from his wound.

The handgun was secured at the scene and both the woman and another witness were brought in for questioning.  The unnamed woman has not been charged.

Rob- Have a gun, and preferably more than one.

Belle- Eastern Kentucky

Krystal Shepard has placed a warrant for assault against Brandon Endicott in September after he hit and kneed her causing her to receive 16 stitches and broken bones in her face.

When the man entered her home one morning shortly afterwards, Ms. Shepard defended herself.  Endicott was found deceased in a neighboring yard and a stray bullet went into a neighboring mobile home.

She had not been charged and the case was being sent to the grand jury.

Rob- there is no cover in a mobile home park.

You just might be a liberal hypocrite if…

As a star of the socialist news media, you act offended by President Trump’s talk of grabbing a woman’s sex..while off-camera you are busy raping women in your office.

As a liberal news caster you act indignant as you grill the conservative talk show host who is facing charges of sexual assault..while you are praying your own victims remain silent.

 

My articles are up at Clash Daily, at Ammoland and at my blog, slow facts dot wordpress dot com.  John, tell us what’s new at your blog no lawyers only guns and money.

 

It has been mostly news stories this past week involving HR 38 and national reciprocity with a little bit thrown in about a new lawsuit that our friends at SAF and Firearms Policy Coalition have sprung on California over their bullet button AWB.

US CITIZENS WILL BE ABLE TO BUY MILITARY SURPLUS 1911 PISTOLS

 

In what will be considered good news by many many US gun owners, one of the provisions of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, about to be signed into law by the President, will allow the release of thousands of surplus 1911s to the civilian market, an estimated one hundred thousand, to be more exact.

 

The guns will be fed out through the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Their website says that they have not yet decided how sales will be handled, or processed, but that they are expecting “exceedingly high demand” for these iconic handguns.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/24/trump-permit-citizens-buy-military-surplus-1911-pistols/

 

John – Just to clarify for anyone interested, you must belong to a CMP affiliated club and you must show proof of marksmanship. The latter could be your military discharge papers, a C&R FFL, your CCW, or your instructor credentials.

 

SUPREME COURT DECLINES TO HEAR MULTIPLE 2A CASES

 

The Supreme Court has given us two significant victories in past years. The “Heller” and “McDonald” cases enshrined in law the concept that every American has the right to have a firearm, to “keep” and “bear”. This has made significant impacts in States such as New Jersey, where there was no commitment to the 2nd Amendment in the State Constitution.  However, more recently, SCOTUS has declined to expand these decisions into the realm of defensive carry outside the home, or to prevent erosion of access to commonly used firearms, such as the AR-15 style rifle. This sad process was reinforced again today (Nov 27), when two cases were denied a hearing.

 

So in total, SCOTUS has recently declined to hear five important 2A cases: Peruta v California, Kolbe v Hogan, Norman v Florida, Stephens v NJ and Purpura v NJ. Why is this? Are there too few votes to be certain of victory, Justice Gorsuch notwithstanding, or are the cases being weeded out by members of the Clerking Pool, without the Justices ever getting to actually consider them?

 

With the ever-gathering clouds of anti-gun legislation appearing on State and Federal horizons, we need a supportive SCOTUS working for us. Please be vigilant, and write to your State and Federal representatives to tell them to vote against anti-2A legislation, and to support pro-2A bills.

Rob- we are running out of test cases. There is so much settled law in each circuit that it becomes harder to bring up a challenge case.

TEXAS CHURCH ATROCITY PROMPTS REVIEW OF NICS SYSTEM

 

A failure of the military authorities to notify the civilian NICS system contributed to the mass murder of worshipers in a small Texan church by an individual whose military background should have prevented him from owning a firearm, thereby allowing the murderer to acquire multiple firearms, apparently legally. Now, Attorney General Sessions has asked for a review of the NICS system, to ensure that relevant military information is integrated correctly.

 

A bipartisan bill is proposed in the US Senate that would mandate such integration, which has been in the works since 2007

It’s a Texas week for Defensive Gun Uses.

 

You Don’t Treat my Daughter that Way

A day-long argument in Denton Texas ended with the victim’s stepfather pulling his pistol in a no shoot defensive gun usage and the aggressive male roommate in jail.

The fight started in the early morning at the apartment where the 23-year-old victim lived.  The suspect, 31-year-old Chad Knapp, had taken some of the woman’s Adderall pills.  Adderall is used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy.

He was kicking and throwing things before he left the apartment through a back window with the pills.  The victim confronted him in front of the apartment as he got into his vehicle.  She attempted to grab the pills from the car.  The suspect pushed her hard and threw her backwards into a brick wall.  The force of hitting the wall caused her to fall to the ground at which point he started to drive away.

A nearby witness attempted to stop him by jumping on the hood of the car and was thrown off, suffering a small cut on her hand.

The victim was taken to the hospital where police noticed bruising on her arms from being grabbed.  Her head also hurt and her back had abrasions from the brick wall.

She returned to her apartment at about 8 PM with her stepfather who had a license to carry a concealed weapon.  As they were trying to get the door open, the suspect approached them with a hammer.  Her stepfather then presented his pistol.

Knapp was held in Denton City Jail on charges of Assault causing bodily injury and deadly conduct.

 

Woman shoots teen intruder in head and Marine defends himself

A Houston Texas woman was home alone when she heard someone breaking into her home at 2 AM.  When she investigated the sound, one of the teenagers hiding behind her couch jumped up.  At that point, she shot the suspect in the head.

She is not facing any charges but as per usual, the case will be sent to a grand jury.

About 3 miles away on Friday night, a group of four teens tried robbing a man at gunpoint.  That man, a retired Marine, pulled his pistol from the front pouch of his hoodie and fired back and hit one of the teens.  The injured teen’s mother took him to a hospital and he was expected to survive.  The teens were caught on a neighbor’s surveillance camera before the ambush and as they ran away.

It was not known if the two incidents are related but the area has seen an escalation of roving gang activity.

Paul-

Rob- I used a flashlight with my students. They find that exercise shocking.

 

Chase suspect picks wrong pickup truck

On Sunday morning, Vidor Texas Police were notified by the Louisiana State Patrol that they were chasing a black Acura at speeds over 100 miles per hour on Interstate 10.  As the Acura approached the 855B off ramp, law enforcement laid down the stop sticks which disabled the car.

Ahead in a pickup truck heading the same direction, Tony Alford spotted the smoking car coming towards them and pulled over to get out of the way.  Diego Gomez, the MS-13 gang member, driving the Acura pulled in behind them and jumped up in the bed of the truck.  Alford jumped out of the truck and held the criminal at gunpoint until law enforcement pulled up.

While Alford held his gun on Gomez, Vidor Police and Texas DPS troopers deployed tasers.  The gangbanger ripped the prongs out and attempted to fight officers.  He was cuffed during the struggle.

While they had him sitting on the ground waiting to EMS to arrive, he gained his feet and ran from the scene but was captured a second time.

Alford’s wife said that he was prepared for the worst-case scenario.  “He was that far from getting a bullet,” she said.

Gomez is facing charges of evading arrest in a motor vehicle and aggravated kidnapping.  Louisiana was seeking charges for fleeing and traffic violations.  In North Carolina, he is facing charges including assault on a peace officer.

Hello Everybody –

Really enjoying your format modifications with all the new voices and personalities, nice work.

What I have for you is not some great new revelation or heady political analysis ….but  it’s better than recipes…I am kidding Susan!

I wrote this a while ago this past summer when Venezuela was front-and-center, but I never hit “Send.” I guess I thought it was rather obvious and mundane. But now with the heinous evil acts carried out in Las Vegas and Texas, there seems to be renewed calls to vacate or significantly modify the political foundational documents of America.
***

Considering what is happening in Venezuela, I thought this short story from our own American history might be timely. The below information is from the book “The Debate on the Constitution, Federalist and Antifederalist Speeches, Articles, and Letters During the Struggle over Ratification – Part I.” edited by Bernard Bailyn, 1993.

Shortly after adjournment of the Philadelphia Convention in September 1778, the colonial citizenry began the very public debate on the new American Constitution. In lieu of our current day social media, and with a lot more eloquence than our cryptic Tweeter quips, the citizens debated the virtues and follies of the new American Constitution in the newspapers, printed pamphlets and public letters. The press and local public speaking events were used to extol, ridicule, or just question the virtues, of the newly inked Constitution.

One such presentation was made on October 17, 1787 in the Philadelphia press by “A Citizen of America,” which was an alias (a Twitter Handle) for Noah Webster. He wrote…

“Another source of power in government is a military force. But this, to be efficient, must be superior to any force that exists among the people, or which they can command; for otherwise this force would be annihilated, on the first exercise of acts of oppression. Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to the band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of the Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive (Bailyn 1993 p.155).”

Webster’s 1787 passage provides a view into how guarded the population was of tyranny. The Bill of Rights, in particular the 2nd Amendment, would not be ratified for another 13 years (December 15, 1791). So even in the absence of the ratified 2nd Amendment, Americans were staunch in their conviction to keep and bear.

I wonder if Venezuelans would think the American Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, quaint outdated historical documents. Or would they warn us to exercise prudence when considering changes to our longstanding government.

Sincerely,

Your Faithful Anonymous Michigan Listener.
Rob- A good analogy to today. Colonial immigrants saw minorities disarmed in Europe.

Hi, folks:

 

I enjoyed the discussion regarding churches.  As a Catholic, I‘m always interested to know what the Catholic position is.

 

The Roman Catholic Church is the largest Christian denomination in the USA, and so its actions are closely watched by many as an example of how churches should deal with the issues of criminality and violence in our society.

 

Many Catholic Bishops have declared churches in their respective dioceses to be „gun free“ zones.  Furthermore, many bishops have advocated openly  against armed self defense. Unfortunately, these teachings by the bishops in many cases, may directly contradict the formal  teachings of the Church.

 

Saint John Paul, known in life as Pope John Paul II, explained the need for, and obligation of, self defense.  In his own words, from the Papal Encyclical Evangelium Vitae (p. 55):

 

“Legitimate defence can be not only a right but a grave duty for someone responsible for another’s life, the common good of the family or of the State. “. [Quoting Catechism of Catholic Church #2265]. Unfortunately it happens that the need to render the aggressor incapable of causing harm sometimes involves taking his life. In this case, the fatal outcome is attributable to the aggressor whose action brought it about, even though he may not be morally responsible because of the lack of the use of reason.“

 

You‘ll never hear the priests or bishops cite this contradiction of their heretical teachings.

 

Kindest Regards,

 

Norman

Hi Folks,

I wrote the following poem a few years ago in order to honor and thank our soldiers, cops and civilian warriors. Please share it with your listeners.

The Sheepdog’s Prayer

The Knights of Old were Men of Honor who used their Might For Right!

Today they’re known as Sheepdogs, those who carry on the fight.

I am a tired old Sheepdog, the guardian of my flock.

I keep the predators at bay and stand watch around the clock.

Please stop the Sheep from pulling my teeth. I’ll need them for the fight,

When the hungry Wolves come calling, some dark and deadly night.

I pray I’ll never need my gun, but someday if I do:

May my cause be just!

My draw be quick!

And my aim be ever true!

Heaven holds a special place for those who do the deed.

Defenders of the innocent in their hour of need.

May the Sheep someday be grateful. There’s a debt they can not pay,

To the Sheepdogs who lay it on the line, each and every day.

I’m proud to be a Sheepdog. I’ve done my very best!

I’ll stand my watch until my Maker calls me home to rest.

But when I meet St. Peter, there’s just one request I’ll make:

“Please let me spend Eternity, standing guard at Heaven’s Gate”.

Lord, help us bring this ”Age of Sheep” to a rapid end.

Then fill this land with Sheepdogs, Men of Honor once again.

This prayer is dedicated, to those who bravely face,

The dangers all around us to make our world a safer place.

To the soldiers, cops and warriors- Sheepdogs through and through.

Thank you for your service and your sacrifices too.

Amen

Paul: Rob, do you have any new posts from your SlowFacts blog you want to mention?

 

Rob- A crazy man in Red Bluff, California was willing to murder his wife and neighbors.  Since stopping criminals is hard and passing laws is easy, I expect the California politicians to call for more laws to encumber honest and sane citizens. These new laws, and the media opportunities they generate for politicians, won’t stop the next murder either. The new laws will allow the politicians to appear relevant. The real problem is complex, and frankly, the problem is beyond the sound-byte politicians in Sacramento. https://slowfacts.wordpress.com/2017/11/16/people-died-in-red-bluff-california-and-there-are-no-easy-solutions/

My articles are up at Clash Daily, at Ammoland and at my blog, slow facts dot wordpress dot com.  John, tell us what’s new at your blog no lawyers only guns and money.

 

This Black Friday saw the all-time one-day record for NICS checks set with over 203,000 checks. While there isn’t a one-to-one correlation with firearms purchases, it is a sign that maybe the stagnation in the firearms’ market is coming to a close. For the sake of those people working in the firearms industry at the retail, distributor, or manufacturer levels I certainly hope so.

Personal news from each participant (when you are done with your segment please ask the next person what has been up with them)

 

Rob- I joined Bill Frady on his Lock and Load Radio program. I’m now a regular guest on the first hour of Tuesday evening. Ben Branam joined me for another episode of Self-Defense Gun Stories.

 

John – I’ve been transcribing my notes from MAG-20. I need to get out to the range but I’ve been slack on that lately. I’ve been working on my annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday post. Given the state of the gun market, I think there will be some real bargains out there.

 

Tracy – I gave a couple of handgun lessons last week, and yesterday I replaced the mag catches in two of my 1911s with right-sided mag catches, on the recommendation of Karl Rehn, because of my freakishly short thumbs. Stay tuned for updates on how my magazine changes are coming along. Yesterday was the first time I have ever attempted any type of gunsmithing on my firearms, and the first time I have ever used LocTite, so I am rather pleased with myself.

 

Gary-

Promo about PSP patches.

 

Promo about upcoming training classes here.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/ideas/2017/11/10/hand-over-your-weapons/6IxJLanMKGak7RvCLipwbN/story.html

It must be nice to write for the mainstream media. It is so much easier to tell a good story when you don’t let the facts get in the way.  The boston globe reported that there is an epidemic of firearms violence in the US. They said there is a growing movement for mass confiscation.  The staff at the polite society podcast wants to know when we get to report without facts.

 

There is not an epidemic of violence across the US. There isn’t even an epidemic of mass murder with firearms.  Our failed socialist cities are violent. Even in those cities, violence is localized to drug turf wars. A number of law enforcement agencies report that we don’t have a firearms violence epidemic.  We don’t even have a drug epidemic. They say we have a drug prohibition epidemic.

 

Compared to other countries, the US firearms homicide rate is average. What isn’t average is localized violence. More than half of our murders occur in 2 percent of our counties. When we exclude a few socialists cities here in the US, then we’re one of the safest countries on earth.

 

When you look at mass public murder by firearm, the US rate isn’t even in the top 10 nations. The US and Austria are 11 and 12. The reason this is so significant is that these mass murder rates exclude government genocide. Government is far more lethal than an armed populous. Here in the US, we have the best of both worlds. We have a low rate of murder and mass murder, diversity of opinion, contentious political freedom, freedom from democide, and an armed populous.

 

Also, there is growing support for going armed, and declining support for an assault weapons ban. That isn’t our opinion, but the results of a pew research poll. You didn’t hear that from the Boston Globe or the New York Times.

Now if only we could clean up Chicago and Saint Louis.

 

Gary Gun Quotes

I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery. It prevents the degeneracy of government, and nourishes a general attention to public affairs. I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical world. Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, January 30, 1787

 

Hang on everybody, we’ll be back with our guest (Tiffany Johnson, Kenn Blanchard, and Aquil Qadir..

Gary- Careful What You Post

Nick Davis had a successful night at the casino.  And like so many, he posted on social media about his winnings.

Cashmiere Hill saw Mr. Davis post and thought it would be a way to gain some extra cash in his own pocket.

Davis was laying down when he heard glass breaking in his kitchen.  He went to investigate and found a black male trying to get into his house.  The man yelled at him to “give me your [expletive] money,” and then fired a shot at Davis.  That shot struck him in the wrist.  Nick fired back in self-defense, he thinks 8 rounds, and struck the intruder who fell back into the stairwell.  Mr. Davis then called 911 and yelled to neighbors for help.  Hill died at the scene.

Tory Summers has told police that he called Davis to make sure he was home then drove Hill to a spot about 2 blocks from the residence.  Hill had told him that he was going to rob Davis and he wanted Summers to pick him up.  When he heard shots coming from the direction of the residence, he left.

He is charged armed robbery, armed burglary, and felony murder.

 

John – Mr. Summers needed to pick better friends

 

Tracy- Heros run toward trouble

5:30 AM can be a good time to go for a run in Austin Texas but the sun doesn’t begin to rise for another hour and a half in September.

A young woman was out for a run last month then she was grabbed from behind by a sexual predator and then fell to the ground with her on her back and the suspect on top of her.  He put his hand over her mouth and kept saying “shh, it’s me baby, it’s me.”  She continued to struggle and tried to use a whistle she carried.

Another jogger who leaves the house prepared heard the victim scream and ran toward her to help.  He was armed with a firearm, flashlight and cell phone.  He pointed his flashlight in the direction of the screams and saw the victim on her back and her attacker on his left side on top of her.

He aimed his gun at the predator and demanded he get off the victim.  The man stood up and was naked from the waist down.  The woman took advantage of her attacker getting up to get up as well and walk toward the jogger.  She did not realize he was armed because she was blinded by his flashlight.  As she walked across the line of fire, the attacker fled with the woman’s shoes and shorts.

She and the hero jogger were able to pick the man from a photo lineup and he has been arrested.

 

Rob- The attacker was a homeless person with a history of exposing himself. Why did the victim choose to go unarmed?

 

Rob City on Lockdown

Last week, the town of Ortonville, Michigan, north of Pontiac, was put on lockdown after Michael Quigley went on the run.

Quigley was distraught that his wife had filed for divorce and had tracked them down at her male friend’s apartment in the small town on Tuesday evening.  He forced his way in and shot both of them.  They were rushed to the hospital with gunshot wounds to the head.  The male friend’s daughter was home at the time but unhurt.

Wednesday morning the local schools were closed or were on lockdown.  The manhunt was on.

Late Wednesday evening he was found hiding in a van in a Brandon Township driveway.  The homeowner opened the back door of the vehicle and found the wanted man hiding under a blanket.  The homeowner had his 9MM pointed at Quigley and the man did everything that he was told to do.  He ordered him down to the ground then called 911 and within two minutes, the SWAT team came out of the woods from every direction.

Quigley’s estranged wife and her friend were in intensive care but in stable condition and were able to talk to police.  Quigley was being held on $8 million bond and was facing numerous charges including attempted murder.

Gary: Rob, do you have any new posts from your SlowFacts blog you want to mention?

 

https://slowfacts.wordpress.com/2017/11/15/the-invisible-hands-of-god-and-man/

 

Rob-

Millions of parishioners, pastors and church elders woke up to a new world after the murders at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. They felt the responsibility to keep their families and their congregations safe. We bring every problem with us to church.  Fortunately, we also bring solutions. We are god’s hands, so it is up to us to stop violence when it comes to church. We are already doing so, and have been for years. You probably won’t notice it, but the change is very real and already underway.

 

My articles are up at Clash Daily, at Ammoland and at my blog, slow facts dot wordpress dot com.  John, tell us what’s new at your blog no lawyers only guns and money.

 

I have been looking at the murders in Rancho Tehama Reserve, California and in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Both sets of murders were done by people who were prohibited persons and both might have been prevented if government had done its job correctly. In the California case, the police had reports from neighbors of the guy shooting in his yard even though he had an order prohibiting him from possessing a firearm. They did nothing about it. In the Sutherland Springs case, we know the Air Force failed to submit the killer’s name to the FBI for inclusion in the NICS database. However, it is actually worse than that. The court martial only gave the guy one year imprisonment and not the eight allowed under the UCMJ. In a NC court, he would have been looking at over 10 years. Either way the killer would still be behind bars. Frankly, I think the USAF just want to get rid of the guy and thus foisted him upon the civilian population. As Dave Hardy titled his new book, “I’m from the government and I’m here to kill you.”
