Kalamazoo Killer had “Arsenal” of Guns

I really do love today’s media. lol. Even worse than the attack on Uber (see link for previous article) out of the blue, they’ve now latched on to gun ownership in general. I love the headline the Detroit Free Press put out in their article. (Full article here). In case you guys didn’t know, apparently by today’s media standard, half of the South is now filled with militarized families with full blown arsenals in their homes. Can I use that word again, just for effect? Arsenal! By this standard, I lack only the requisite white sheets with holes cut in them to start my own spree of terror! Oh, with my arsenal. Can’t forget the arsenal! Eleven long guns and four handguns constitutes an arsenal to the media? Let’s clarify this from the point of view of the average gun owner as compared to maybe the average housewife. Anyone that works with … Read the rest…

NRA – Safety First… or maybe second?

I’m almost fearful to write this post, mainly because I don’t want a letter in the mail stating the NRA has revoked my instructor license for disagreeing with them. As many of you know, I am the owner and head-trainer for a S.A.F.T. Academy, where we teach a full mantle of NRA firearms courses. I am also a longtime member of the NRA, but as a member and an instructor I often find myself at peace with their mission, but at odds with the way they go about achieving it. What we instructors do: As instructors we have spent THOUSANDS of dollars educating ourselves on how to educate students. To put it in perspective, a student typically pays $50-$75 for a class, plus maybe 1 box of ammunition. At our instructor courses, we usually have to pay $300-450 per course, take up two full very long days, and sometimes shoot … Read the rest…

Which Cops Do You Want? Decide America!

Which one do you want to see on the streets every day, America? Because if we keep this up, we’re going to come to a turning point where it will be our citizens to blame.     Take a good long look at the images above and decide which one you want patrolling your streets, performing traffic stops, and knocking on your door. The decision is yours but you’d better decide soon before it gets decided for you. And I’m afraid you won’t like the outcome if the police get to decide. Cop Killing is Cool Now? It’s hard to believe I live in the country ours has become. As of today, there have been 24 cop murders this year, with 8 of them in last 9 days. I don’t mean cops shot in the line of duty. That’s sad enough. I mean sick twisted individuals just walking up and … Read the rest…

Gun Safety – And other tricks

On January 19th of this year, the nation’s gun-owners decided to celebrate a national “Gun Appreciation” day. Great idea, right? No. Why? Six people at three different gun shows across the United States were hurt in what could have been fatal gun incidents. Sadly, all of them required hospital visits. Even more sadly, each of them could have been prevented. Yesterday millions of people turned out across the nation to show their support for the 2nd amendment. You/we should all know by now that NO one is going to report “1.999 million people NOT hurt on Gun Appreciation Day.” Why would they? But let an accident happen – especially one with a gun, and see what comes out of the wood work. That got me thinking about a video. Yes, there are lots of gun-safety videos out there. Apparently they aren’t watched by the people who NEED to watch them. … Read the rest…
