"[Y]our own body and mind work constantly to evaluate your surroundings, read the emotions and actions of people and animals, and give you early warning of danger. If you let it ... That’s how humans have managed to survive from the beginning. Your natural instincts are seriously important, and you can do a lot to improve and make good use of them. That’s the good news."

Situational awareness, part 2

MamaLiberty The Price of Liberty
by MamaLiberty  

"Remember that criminals look for and target the unaware, anyone perceived to be weak, the elderly, anyone they see as probably helpless. If you look like food ... you may be eaten. So, what might you do to sharpen your awareness skills? First, if you are just looking for trouble, suspicious activity or people, thinking only of the negative, you may well ignore important but subtle clues. And it’s not a nice way to live anyway."

Respect for life

"I’ve written numerous times about the gun grabbers’ lack of respect for human life. My contention is that they don’t consider life precious enough to protect. They don’t want the responsibility. They want to rely on the almighty state to protect them, and they want no one else to have that option. Nowhere is that fact more obvious than on the Mothers Demand Gunsense in America Twitter feed."

Gottlieb: The man who owns JPFO

"What Gottlieb is up to, nobody really knows. The only thing anyone can be sure of is that whatever he’s up to will benefit Gottlieb. That’s been his way of business for a very long time. One Jewish gun-rights activist I know calls Gottlieb a Kapo. The Kapos were prisoners, sometimes Jews, that the Nazis used to help them rule others in the concentration camps." (10/08/14)

No guns?

MamaLiberty The Price of Liberty
by MamaLiberty  

"The anti-gun people often tell us that a criminal would simply take a gun away from you and, probably, use it to kill you instead. OK, it could certainly happen, and probably does sometimes. We read often enough about victims who manage to take the criminal’s gun and use it against him or her. It’s a possibility either way. Is it the most likely outcome of using a gun in self defense? Does that make it pointless to have a gun in the first place? Of course not." (10/07/14)

Show us your guns, America

"Carrying rights have now been restored in every state, the Times reports, with only three -- Maine, North Dakota and Illinois -- still banning guns in restaurants or bars that derive more than half their profits from alcohol. While each state’s law is written differently, most give restaurant and bar owners the right to 'post' their establishment -- to tack a sign on the door either prohibiting or allowing firearms. (Almost like they had private property rights -- imagine that.) After the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, many national chains, including Starbucks, Sonic and Chipotle, claim to have banned weapons on their premises. (The ban is only for some of us, of course -- watch to see if police officers disarm before entering, or if any employee asks them to.)" (10/06/14)

Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun propaganda

October 7, 2014
posted by

Fox News Forum
by Dr. John R. Lott Jr.  

"When former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control groups release a report, they consistently garner massive, uncritical news coverage. Alas. With the huge number of factual mistakes in these reports, you would think that reporters would have grown wary of pushing their propaganda. For example, Bloomberg’s Everytown, Mothers Demand Action, and Mayors Against Illegal guns have been caught padding the number of school shootings. While Everytown claimed 74 school shootings occurred between the Newtown, Connecticut shooting in December 2012 and June 2014, Politifact, which rated Everytown’s claim as 'mostly false,' put the number of 'incidents such as Sandy Hook or Columbine in which the shooter intended to commit mass murder' at 10."

How states can protect the 2nd Amendment from federal abuse

October 6, 2014
posted by

10th Amendment Center Tenth Amendment Center
by TJ Martinell  

"Members of Congress who want to infringe on your right to keep and bear arms will never give up. Fortunately, through our states we can effectively render any new federal gun laws powerless by using a legal doctrine upheld repeatedly by the Supreme Court. This is done by depriving the feds of any enforcement assistance by local law enforcement agencies in their state, a doctrine known as 'anti-commandeering.'" (10/05/14)

Defense Distributed and the spirit of resistance

The Zelman Partisans The Zelman Partisans
by Claire Wolfe  

"[Cody] Wilson and Defense Distributed are leaders of a 'rebellion' that never needs to fire a single shot or attack any government facility. Their work isn’t about firearms (though that, too). It’s about declaring 'gun control' and the regulatory state obsolete. Without a single act of violence, they’re attacking the foundations of arbitrary authority. They’re attempting (and achieving) more than the Shaysites or Whiskey Rebels ever could have hoped." (10/02/14)

Dear liberals, if ISIS is a threat to all Americans, then shouldn’t we be well armed?

Liberty Chat
by Ian Cioffi  

"Lost in all the fear mongering from Liberals regarding ISIS, is that if what they’re saying about ISIS is true, then shouldn’t all Americans be arming themselves? Sorry Liberals, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t defend Obama’s wars, saying ISIS could strike America, and then also argue for more restrictive gun laws. If we’re under as much threat from ISIS as you claim, every American should be well armed." (09/24/14)

Time to take their toys away

William Norman Grigg Pro Libertate
by William Norman Grigg  

"When Daniel Webster warned that there will always be men who 'promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters,' he most likely had in mind people like Ada County Sheriff Gary Raney. Ironically, Webster’s brand of nationalism would have harmonized with Raney’s federal supremacist view of law enforcement, in which local police and sheriffs are duty-bound to carry out policies ordained by the central government, even when doing so pits them against the populations they supposedly serve. Not surprisingly, Raney is an ardent drug warrior, a proponent of civilian disarmament, and a stout defender of police militarization." (09/23/14)

2nd Amendment: Original meaning and purpose

September 22, 2014
posted by

10th Amendment Center Tenth Amendment Center
by TJ Martinell  

"When the Constitution was signed on September 17, 1789, federalists claimed the new government would only have limited powers expressly delegated to it. This wasn’t enough for anti-federalists like George Mason, who wanted explicit guarantees to certain rights in order to prevent any potential encroachment by the federal government. One of them was the right to keep and bear arms." (09/22/14)

All of these require you to use your imagination in a number of ways, but there is a further dimension wherein the use of your active imagination can help you prepare even better for that situation you sincerely hope will never happen."

Swiss girls just wanna have guns

"There was uproar in August after a nine-year-old girl accidentally shot her shooting instructor with a machine gun at a venue called Bullets and Burgers in Arizona, USA. This was just the latest inevitable outcome, we were told, of a culture obsessed with guns. But as I saw in Zurich, Switzerland on Monday, the US is not alone in being so comfortable with such weapons, and there is no simplistic connection between teaching young people to use guns and high rates of homicide."

"Last time, in 'How Do You Practice for Self Defense,' I outlined the first of the 'dry fire' exercises I recommend to all my students. When you are happy with your progress there, you will be ready to work on the next one. Remember that these exercises are cumulative, not consecutive. Continue to be aware of and practice previously honed skills as you advance to new things. Never forget that in an emergency, filled with fear and adrenalin, you will respond as you have trained."

If you have or ever had any relationship with JPFO, these are your last few days to take care of yourself." (09/09/14)

"Storm troopers in ninja warrior or SWAT gear do not belong anywhere in a peaceful society, much less in a building full of frightened, helpless people. That’s certainly true whether the designated victims are 'warned' ahead of time or not.

I will not spend a devalued zincky on JPFO unless I see it truly continuing Aaron’s legacy. This is a sad day for human/civil rights. On the other hand, we can now slip a generator drive belt around Aaron's spinning body and provide enough electricity to power the eastern seaboard." [hat tip -- Claire Wolfe] (09/04/14)

How do you practice for self defense?

"So, you’ve taken the basic pistol or CCW class in your area, bought your gun and visit girl guntalk web sites or discuss with a few friends your choices in gear and the right ammunition. You show up at the range at least once a month, and may even be contemplating joining the ladies night shoot. You are carrying daily or at least thinking about it ... Or did you buy a gun and then tuck it into your night stand (or your husband’s gun safe) to await being found crusted with rust in some archaeological dig a thousand years from now?" (09/03/14)

"On April 2 of this year, 34-year-old Puerto Rican national Ivan Lopez, an Iraq War veteran with four children, grew upset that he was having trouble getting 'family leave,' so he drove around the huge Texas base with a .45-caliber pistol, shooting 20 people, killing four, including a couple of sergeants. It was later revealed that Specialist Lopez, who was in uniform at the time, wasn’t authorized to carry a concealed firearm. Hey! Another 'gun ban' gets the job done!" (09/03/14)
