Addressing school mass murders

Leave a comment


I have the prefect school warning sign This school is protected by armed teachers three days a week and you guess which three.

My daughter said What if the bad guy picks the day when there aren’t any guns at school?

I said it will not matter as my sign lied the teachers are armed every day.

First we tried posting signs forbidding guns on campus. That didn’t seem to work very well as only the good guys complied. Next came lockdowns. When shots are fired in a school, all doors are locked; great except for the room where the shooter is. The third plan was to Run, Hide, Fight — only no one was allowed anything to fight with. It’s past time to face reality: All the rules, statutes, restraining orders, 911 calls, hand to hand combat technics, aerosol spray Mace, run & hide or other pseudo protective measures will never equal the effectiveness of a firearm when faced with an unwarranted and deadly criminal attack.

Suggestions for addressing school mass murders:

1) Post in schools, signs with wording to the effect: “School Employees and Others May be Armed” while removing all “No Guns Allowed” and “Gun Free Zone” signs;

2) Allow vetted volunteers (parents and others), with special training, to roam the school campuses, while armed. Utilizing trained volunteers (who better than those with children in the school systems) will significantly reduce the cost and difficulty of hiring qualified security guards and/or police officers.

3) Encourage non-armed volunteers to also patrol the school campuses. All volunteers, armed or unarmed, should not be dressed different than the school’s teaching/custodial staff. Unique uniforms not only allow a criminal to keep track of the volunteers, but would be akin to wearing a sign: “shoot me first”.

4) All of these volunteers must be required NOT to let-on whether they are armed or not. This, coupled with the posting of the suggested signage would, for all intents and purposes, substantially increase the perceived number of armed civilians on school grounds. Knowing there are armed persons about, but not knowing who they are will create a significant deterrent to anyone contemplating an attack on schools.

5) These parents and adult volunteers would be encouraged to mingle with and converse with the students which would be an added bonus of informal mentoring.

Who is to Blame for School Shootings?

Leave a comment


I do not understand the mentality of most politicians that oppose arming any teacher that is willing to be trained to use a firearm.

Banks have armed guards the Holly Weird elites children along with politicians children are protected by armed guards so why can’t our most precious possessions our children by protects by armed teachers. 

I’ll cut right to the point. We can stop murderers from killing our kids in school, but it isn’t easy. The politicians, particularly the Florida politicians, are against it. What can we do to save our students?

We’ve asked the people who train SWAT cops what they can do. They said it takes too long to assemble a SWAT team. It takes too long to put the team in position near the school. It takes too long to clear the building and time is the enemy. Several students and staff will be shot every minute.

We asked the local police officers and sheriffs deputies. They don’t even get the 911 call until the shooting has been going on for several minutes. It takes time for law enforcement officers to race to the scene. They then have to enter the school and find the attacker before they can stop him. That is 15 minutes lost right there. Law enforcement will not let medical personnel into the building until they know the crime scene is safe. That means the cops will clear every classroom before the EMTs enter the building and start treating the injured. Those 45 minutes are critical.

Sheriffs said that takes too long. They said they need armed staff in the school. We protect our money with guns, but Florida politicians say we can’t protect children with armed staff.

Let me correct that statement. We can’t protect OUR children. The children of celebrities and politicians have armed guards. Our children don’t. Only the children of the elites deserve protection. That isn’t acceptable.

Several states have programs in place to arm school staff. They train volunteer school staff to stop the threat and treat the injured until police and EMTs arrive. These teachers desperately want a chance for their kids to go home alive. These are the same teachers who will stop a bullet with their bodies to save “their kids”.

I want them all to go home alive, both teachers and students. The training program is called FASTER, which stands for Faculty / Administrator Safety Training & Emergency Response. They’ve trained thousands of teachers and have thousands of man-years of experience with armed staff in schools. Why aren’t they in your school? Learn about them at

The Florida politicians will propose more prohibitions, more ink on paper. That hasn’t stopped a single murderer yet. Ink on paper doesn’t keep blood off the floor, but ink on paper fools voters time after time.

Will it work this time too?


AL: Constitutional Carry on the Move

Alabama is slowly moving closer to freedom for legal gun owners.

Constitutional Carry is on the move in Alabama. Senate Bill 3 would eliminate the need for a carry permit for law abiding adults. From

Senate bill 3, sponsored by senator Gerald Allen, would repeal the permit requirement for the carrying of firearms.

It would allow any law-abiding adult who can legally possess a firearm to carry a handgun for self-defense in Alabama without having to first obtain a permit to do so.

The NRA-ILA confirms the essence of he bill. It does not eliminate the shall issue permit system that is now in place. Alabamians would still be able to obtain permits for reciprocity with other states. Alabamaians would still be able to obtain a carry permit as an alternative to the NICS instant check stystem. From the

Senate Bill 3, sponsored by Senator Gerald Allen (R-21), would repeal the permit requirement for the carrying of firearms. This important legislation would allow any law-abiding adult who can legally possess a firearm to carry a handgun for self-defense in Alabama without having to first obtain a permit to do so. This legislation would allow law-abiding adults in Alabama to carry in a manner that best suits their needs and improves their ability to defend themselves and their loved ones from danger.

In essence SB 3 would put into law what Alabamians overwhelmingly voted for in Amendment 3 of the Alabama Constitution. Amendment 3 passed with 72.5% of the vote in 2014. Amendment 3 protected the exercise of the right to keep and bear arms in Alabama with strong language.

Arms may be carried in only two ways, openly or concealed. Requiring a permit for concealed carry is clearly a restriction on the right to bear arms. SB 3 is the legislature enforcing the Constitutional amendment with statutory reform. Here is a description of Amendment 3. From ballotpedia:

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to provide that every citizen has a fundamental right to bear arms and that any restriction on this right would be subject to strict scrutiny; and to provide that no international treaty or law shall prohibit, limit, or otherwise interfere with a citizen’s fundamental right to bear arms.

In 2017, three years after Amendment 3 was made part of the Alabama Constitution, the Alabama Senate passed Constitutional Carry 26-8. The bill died after some law enforcement agencies spoke out against it. At l

A year ago, Senator Allen vowed to keep sponsoring the bill until it passes. From

“It’s time we give our citizens the right to bear arms without first seeking the government’s permission,” Allen said.

Alabama already allows people to openly carry a holstered pistol without a permit. Allen said there is no logical reason to continue the permit requirement for carrying a concealed pistol.

Alabama has a short legislative session. This is done deliberately, to limit the damage a legislature can accomplish. The legislature convened on 9 January. The regular session will end on 23 April, 2018. That is only three and a half months to pass bills.

There are 13 current members of the Constitutional Carry Club. They are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming, and West Virginia.

Vermont was the only Constitutional Carry state until 2003, when Alaska passed its modernization bill. Arizona was next, in 2010. Since 2010, ten more states have modernized state law to reflect respect for the exercise of the Second Amendment.

You’ll be Freer and Richer in the Bill of Rights Culture

This has two parts use the link at the bottom to read part 2

By Aaron Zelman, Executive Director, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership
with Claire Wolfe and Richard W Stevens

In America, within living memory, all these things were true:

 You could sit up in the back of an open convertible and feel the wind in your face without being fined for a seat-belt violation.
 Police would never burst into your house at midnight without knocking.
 You would never find a police “checkpoint” on an American highway.
 You could go to your doctor and not have your medical records automatically made available to federal researchers and investigators.
 You could sit in a bar or the smoking section of a restaurant and enjoy a cigarette as you relaxed with friends.
 You could get on an airplane carrying a firearm for self-defense.
 A peaceable person could order a firearm by mail through a major department store’s catalog.
 You could purchase several boxes of cold capsules without the drug store calling police to report you as a “meth suspect.”
 You could buy gasoline for 29 cents per gallon and a pound of hamburger for 69 cents. Although salaries were also lower than today, household expenses and taxes were low enough that one parent in most families could stay at home to watch over the children.
 You could open a bank account, make deposits, and withdraw money without your activities being reported to a host of federal agencies.
 You could get a state drivers license without having to give a federal government ID number.
 Your children could explore the realms of chemistry and model rocketry without being considered potential bomb suspects.
 You could check books out of the library without fear that investigators would get your records without a warrant.
 You could send your child to a government school without him or her automatically being put on a military recruitment list.
 You could fill in a low spot on your own property without having to beg for an array of federal and state permits.
 And you knew that, in a free country, your home would never be confiscated just so that it the government could give it to a private resort or stadium developer.


That was then, this is now.

Today matters are very different – and getting worse. We’re surrounded by police-state “security” measures that do little to make us safe but a lot to make us feel humiliated, bullied, and spied upon.

Our neighbors, utility workers, bank tellers, and store clerks are encouraged to report anything we do that might be “suspicious” (and “suspicious activities” can include things as innocent as buying “too many” coffee filters, batteries, or cans of lye for opening drains or making soap).

Virtually all our freedoms are being curtailed – from the right to travel or speak freely to the right to have our homes secure against violent invasion by military-style police.

We have — as Ben Franklin warned us we should never do — traded away our freedom to get a little security. The result is exactly as Franklin predicted: We are increasingly less free and less secure.

Many of us also become less prosperous every day. Good jobs go overseas, leaving low-paying service jobs in their place. Our money becomes worth less and less every year. (U.S. money has lost about 95 percent of its value since our grandmother’s day.) Children are shoved into institutional care because both parents have to work to support a family. Our debts pile up higher and higher until today, the average American household actually has more debt than income each year.

The debts being run up by the federal government are even worse. In October 2005, the national debt passed $8 trillion. As I write this, in December 2005, the government has run up liabilities of more than $27,000 for every single living American, man, woman, and child. Between January 2001, the debt increased at an average of $14,939.97 per second, or $1.291 billion per day. During the last several months of 2005, the debt has been increasing at $2.83 billion per day. [1]

(Addition during page update Oct 2011 – compare now the increased deficit growth since the new admin from 2008.)

The numbers are mind boggling, but the basic fact is simple to understand: Government irresponsibility and overreach is stealing your future and your children’s future. Government takes your money, your time, your property, and your freedom and uses your “contributions” to harm you. In short: big government is a form of theft. It steals your life.



[B]ig government is a form of theft. It steals your life.



We got into this dilemma largely because we lost sight of the importance of putting strict limits on government.
But life doesn’t have to be this way.


The future could be better.

Now, think about a different sort of life you could have:

 You deposit $10,000 in your bank account and nobody demands to know where it came from. Nobody reports it to federal investigators. Because unless you do something overtly criminal, unless investigators have justification for getting a search warrant or a subpoena, your finances are considered your private business.
 You travel freely without being terrorized by checkpoints, pat-downs, or incessant demands for your government ID.
 You know that no government will deny you your right to defend yourself, your family, and your community against violent criminals.
 You can freely purchase food supplements or seek alternative health care, knowing that your own educated choices won’t be vetoed in advance by bureaucrats. Everyone knows that your health and nutrition choices are your own business.
 Individuals are considered responsible for their behavior. Those who use recreational chemicals (like tobacco, alcohol, or marijuana) responsibly are left alone. Those who are prone to addictions can seek medical help without fear of being arrested. Those who use chemicals recklessly, harming others, are held responsible for their behavior, not the chemical.
 You can be confident you won’t be arrested arbitrarily. If you are arrested, you know that the justice system will scrupulously respect your rights. You’ll never be tortured. You’ll never be locked up for years without trial. Your assets will never be confiscated unless you’re convicted of a crime in which the method and degree of asset forfeiture is explicitly spelled out in advance.
 You pay fewer personal taxes, which enables you to work fewer hours and provide better for your family. Because the business people you deal with also pay fewer taxes, goods and services are all more affordable.
 Businesses are neither subsidized by government nor regulated by unconstitutional agencies. They stand or fall on their own merits – as determined by their customers. Citizen watchdog groups that you choose to support replace government intervention, making sure that bad products or unsafe practices come to the attention of purchasers.
 There are still poor people and disabled people in this world. They’re helped by families, neighbors, religious groups, and charities. Because there are more opportunities and fewer economic barriers, poverty decreases over time. Those who have pulled themselves up create opportunities for others. The genuinely unfortunate get assistance. But the few who persist in making stupid, irresponsible choices soon find that nobody is willing go on enabling them. Those who want to game “the system” discover that there is no “system” — just other people they have to look straight in the eye. Other people to whom they must be accountable if they want help.
 You don’t live in Utopia. Human beings never will. Sometimes state and local governments get too big for their britches and attempt to pass laws that limit freedom. But it’s far easier to battle injustice close to home than it ever was to have to fight every injustice, every outrage at the federal level.
 There is no constant “war on this or that.” There is no need for such wars and the barrage of media scares and Draconian laws that go with them.
 In the world where you live, the federal government is primarily a modest-sized administrative organization without armies of career bureaucrats and regulators. It has a handful of powers delegated to it by the people and the states, but it has no involvement in daily family life, education, medicine, manufacture, agriculture, religion, media, entertainment, or the thousands of other areas in which today’s federal government takes a dominating, “800-pound gorilla” role.
 The government has neither the power nor the desire to subsidize, subdue, and control all the other countries of the world.
 And each year, the central government gets smaller and smaller – taxing less, taking less, surrendering more and more authority to the states and the people, to whom real power rightly belongs.


You understand the problem. You know it. You feel it. In Part 2, you will encounter the magic of the principles.

Mass Murder Limited By Legal Gun Owners

Another example good guys with guns stopping a bad guy with a gun.


By Dean Weingarten. December 5th, 2017
Article Source

In Rockledge, Florida, at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, the 25th of November, 2017, two armed citizens stopped a mass murder in progress. Police Chief Joseph P. LaSata of the Rockledge Police Department, made clear the intervention of the armed citizens was responsible for stopping the murderer. Two employees were shot, one killed, in the parking lot. Then two armed employees intervened. From the transcript of this video from

Matt Lupoli, reporter:

Another employee, a manager, came out with a gun of his own and shot and wounded Baily. That man has not been named, but police say he saved several other lives, customers and employees alike.

Rockledge Chief Joseph Lasata:

Mr. Baily 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.

The murder suspect, Robert Lorenzo Bailey, Jr, 28, of Cocoa, is in critical condition at the Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melborne. The suspect has not been connected to Schlenker Automotive. The murder and gunfight started in Schlenker’s parking lot. The suspect opened fire on a 25 year old employee, paralyzing him. He shot and killed 50 year old Roger Lee Smith, who had been employed at the shop for numerous years, as Smith came out the door to the parking lot. Then two armed employees, who had concealed carry permits, intervened. From

The gunman killed one employee and paralyzed a second. That’s when the employees at Schlenker Automotive fought back with equal force, Rockledge police chief Joseph La Sata said.

“The manager, who was a concealed weapons permit holder, came out and engaged in gunfire in the parking lot,” La Sata said. “The manager fled back inside the building, being chased by the gunman. Another Schlenker employee, who also had concealed weapons permit, engaged in gunfire with the suspect.”

This is the second time in three weeks armed citizens have intervened in a mass murder, preventing further murders from taking place. The first was Stephen Willeford, an NRA instuctor who grabbed his AR-15 and engaged the mass murderer at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on November 5, 2017. We do not know the names of the two armed citizens who stopped the casualty count at two in Rockledge, Florida on 25 November. We know they had concealed carry permits, and that citizens who carry guns legally are extremely law abiding.

When armed citizens intervene, lives are saved. Those who want a disarmed population use the effectiveness of interventions to claim they do not occur. As only one victim was killed before the murderer was stopped, some will say it was not a mass murder, therefore no one can say a mass murder was stopped by an armed citizen.

Here is a list, with links to more than two dozen cases where armed citizens stopped mass killing — Mass Killings Stopped by Armed Citizens, Updated

Quote from Chief Joseph Lasata Rockledge Police Chief:
Mr. Baily had multiple magazines on his person. He was intent on doing harm. The employees steped up and prevented customers, employees, and other venders who were in the busines at the time from sustaining further injuries. They did a good job.



During a press conference on Saturday morning, Chief LaSata said Bailey entered the parking lot of Schlenker’s at about 4:30 p.m. Friday afternoon armed with a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol and several magazines of ammunition.

“Bailey had multiple magazines on his person,” said Chief LaSata during the press conference.

According to Chief LaSata, Bailey shot and killed 50-year-old Schlenker employee Roger Lee Smith as he responded to the sound of the gunshot that wounded another Schlenker employee, a 25-year-old man who has not been identified at this time.

Two Schlenker employees with concealed weapon permits returned fire as Baily entered the building, striking him twice. Baily is in critical condition at Health First’s Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne.

Police chief Joseph LaSata announced at a Saturday morning news conference that the suspect, Robert Lorenzo Bailey, Jr, 28, of Cocoa had a .45 caliber handgun and several magazines of bullets when he went to Schlenker’s Automotive, at 396 Barton Blvd, around 4:30 p.m. Friday. Police say there’s no known connection that Bailey had to the business. RPD said Bailey was walking along Barton Blvd. when he walked to the business, firing shots. Two workers were hit by his gunfire.

A manager of the shop, who has not been named by police, had a concealed weapons permit, fired at Bailey, and held him at gunpoint until police detained him. Roger Lee Smith, 50, of Rockledge, a longtime employee of the car repair shop, is one of the workers who was shot. Smith died of his injuries. Another worker whose name has not been released, is paralyzed from his injuries. Police have charged Bailey with one count of First Degree Premeditated Murder, and two counts of Attempted Murder. He is being treated at a medical facility for his injuries, and will be booked into jail when his condition permits.

Quote from video :
He saved several other lives, customers and employees alike., and other venders who were in the busines at the time from being injured. He did a good job.

Fake News: “Unsecured Guns” Kill Kids

Leave a comment


“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.”
– Mark Twain

By Dean Weingarten. October 20th, 2017
Article Source

If people are sincerely interested in reducing the number of children that are killed with guns in the United States, it ill serves them to lie about the numbers. It creates distrust in everything that they say. It creates suspicion about their real motives. In a story out of Flint, Michigan, the reporters claim that “the agencies” say that more than 7,000 children are killed every year in the United States “from” unsecured guns. From (WJRT):

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Flint Police Department are passing out 300 gun locks to keep children safe.

The agencies say more than 7,000 children are killed every year from unsecured guns in the United States.

That number is false. The total number of people under the age of 18, who were killed with firearms, unsecured or not, was 1458, about 20% of the claimed figure. It is unknown how many of those were with “unsecured” firearms. The term “unsecured” is undefined in the story.

A quick check with WISQARS, the database maintained by the CDC, shows the real numbers for the last year available, 2015.

From the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for 2015, the latest year available, 77 people under the age of 18 were killed in fatal firearm accidents that year. It is unknown how many of those firearms were unsecured. Clearly, many were secured, as many of those fatal accidents occurred at the hands of an adult.

566 people under the age of 18 killed themselves in a suicide with a firearm, according to the CDC. How many were in legal possession of the firearm when they committed suicide is unknown.

765 people under the age of 18 were killed in homicides committed with a firearm. Again, we do not know how many of those were committed with a firearm that was under the control of an adult, or of a person under the age of 18 who had legal control of the firearm.

The total for all the deaths of people under the age of 18 from someone using a firearm, according to the CDC, was 1458, so 50 deaths occurred where the intent was unknown.

1458 is a little more than one fifth of the the 7000 claimed in the article. But that is all deaths, whether the firearm was secured or not. We do not know in how many cases the firearm was secured, how many cases the person who used the firearm had legal access, or how many cases the person who used the firearm breached the security on the firearm in order to use it.

John Lott, in research designed to see if laws requiring firearms to be locked up reduced deaths where a firearm was used, found no effect on juvenile deaths. However, violent crime and property crime increased. From

Abstract: It is frequently assumed that safe-storage gun laws reduce accidental gun deaths and total suicides, while the possible impact on crime rates is ignored. We find no support that safe-storage laws reduce either juvenile accidental gun deaths or suicides. Instead, these storage requirements appear to impair people’s ability to use guns defensively. Because accidental shooters also tend to be the ones most likely to violate the new law, safestorage laws increase violent and property crimes against law-abiding citizens with no observable offsetting benefit in terms of reduced accidents or suicides.

The research does not show the effect of private efforts to handle firearms safely. Safe storage can be part of that effort. Private efforts to increase gun safety, overall, seem to have been effective. The rate of fatal firearm accidents in the United States has been reduced by 94% in the last 85 years.

Editor’s Note:
While I do not want dismiss any tragedy, I think it is important to put these numbers into perspective. 1458 deaths by “children” under the age of 17 seems like a lot. And I put quotation marks around children because I wouldn’t consider a 17 year old gang banger who gets shot in the commission of a crime as a “child” but I digress.

According to the 2010 census there are approximately 75 million US citizens under the age of 18.

Meaning that the chance of someone under the age of 18 getting killed by a gun, whether by accident, suicide or during a commission of a crime is .00002% That breaks down to a 1 in 50,000 chance that a kid will be killed (or kill themselves) with a firearm.

To compare it to something the chances of them dying in some type of accident is roughly 1 in 2,000.

Gun Controllers have long tried to skew the numbers to make gun violence seem like some epidemic in this country when the truth is simply that it is not. Gun Controllers pile ALL gun deaths in one package which is inflated by the fact that suicide with a firearm far outnumbers homicide and accidental death by firearm. Now while suicide is unfortunate, there are literally MILLIONS of ways to kill yourself so blaming a gun for a persons choice is disingenuous at best and just ghoulish at worst. Furthermore, gun controllers love to pad their numbers by including those who are killed in the commission of a crime. Ie, a serial rapist and murderer invades a home of a mother and her 2 young children but shoots the murdering rapist, gun control groups like the Brady Campaign will add his death to the “tragic loss of life due to gun violence.” It truly is disgusting.

Be wary of blanket statistics. I’m not saying discount them out of hand because I’m pretty sure I just through some at you above, but rather look into what the numbers are telling you and decide for yourself.


Let’s Keep the Gun Control Laws That Work



This means we can toss out all of the gun control laws as the do not have not ever worked.


By Rob Morse. October 21st, 2017
Article Source

A mass murderer killed almost 60 people in Las Vegas. Hundreds more were injured by gunshot wounds and by being trampled in the mass panic that followed. Politicianscelebrities and gun control activists called for new gun laws. That isn’t a new idea. We already have 23 thousand firearms regulations. Let’s look at the recent proposals. We can keep the gun-control laws that work and get rid of the rest.

Demand Universal Background Checks– Lots of states already require background checks when firearms are bought or sold. The murderer in Las Vegas bought his guns legally, so he passed his background checks. So did the murderers who killed people at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, at the Umpqua Community College in Oregon, and at Isla Vista near the University of Santa Barbara campus. I’m noticing a pattern here. Background checks only look at past criminal history. They can not predict future behavior, and they absolutely failed to stop mass murderers.

Impose Magazine Capacity Restrictions– I mentioned him before, but the murderer at Isla Vista used a handgun, not a rifle. He bought his gun and magazines in California which already has magazine capacity restrictions. This murderer had several magazines. So did the murder who killed at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. The attempted mass murderer who attacked a church in Tennessee last month also used a handgun. These murderers were able to kill at will because their victims were disarmed. Magazine Capacity Restrictions didn’t stop mass murders. Let’s get rid of this failed law.

Outlaw Semi-Automatic Weapons– The proponents of gun control said we should outlaw semi-automatic weapons. These weapons fire a single shot for each press of the trigger. We will ignore the physical and legal impossibility of collecting every one of the 200 million semi-automatic firearms in the United States. Let’s pretend for a moment that we could make all of the semi-automatic guns in the United States go away. Guns don’t stay gone. Criminals get them. Criminals have them now. It is illegal for criminals to have guns, but the night is filled with gunfire in Chicago. In Chicago, we disarmed the honest people while we left the criminals armed. Gun prohibition failed to disarm criminals, so let’s get rid of it.

Prohibit Private Citizens from Owning Firearms– Gun Control advocates say we should have gun laws like the ones in England and France. Mexico and Honduras also have gun prohibition. In Mexico and Honduras, the drug gangs have guns and the honest citizens are disarmed. Those countries have a frightening murder rate that is far higher than in the United States. London now has a higher crime rate than New York City.

France outlawed semi-automatic rifles, yet terrorists murdered over a hundred people at the Bataclan Theater in Paris. These terrorists used illegal automatic rifles. It turns out that terrorists and drug gangs don’t obey the law. Only honest people do, so who are we disarming with more gun laws? These gun laws fail in the United States and around the world. Prohibition fails, so let’s get rid of it.

We need more gun-free zones– The Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino was a gun free zone. Not even the security guards were armed. The Pulse Nightclub, the Umpqua Community College, Isla Vista, and the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church were also gun free zones. Murderers go to gun-free zones because they want disarmed victims. Since murderers like them, let’s get rid of gun free zones.

But gun-control might save one life– For every claim that gun control saves a life, I can point to many lives it cost. Victims of domestic abuse could not buy a gun to protect themselves and their family. I can point to rape victims who were disarmed by gun laws. Disarming honest people doesn’t make us safer. I document that guns save lives every week.

I want to save many lives, and that is why I want these ineffective gun laws to go away. I trust my neighbors to do the right thing. I trust my neighbors every day as we drive to work and school. So do you. I trust my neighbors more than I fear criminals. I want my neighbors ready to save lives every day..and everywhere. That is why I want to get rid of these gun control laws that don’t work. It is simply common sense.

The Real and Imaginary Dangers of Firearms Training

Leave a comment

The most dangerous thing about guns is…

… I could accidentally wound my pride.
… I need a new gun before I can take a class.
… I could make a mistake in a self-defense class.
… I might look clumsy or unsafe, and leave my ego bleeding on the classroom floor.

These excuses feel familiar to me. Most gun owners have never taken a concealed carry course, so the feeling might be new to you. If we did get our permit, then most of us stopped there. We haven’t been to the range or taken a class in years. We like to shoot, but our fear of embarrassment keeps us from taking the next step.. from getting training.

Our fear also leaves our family at risk. When we step back and look at it, we would rather fail on the street in a self-defense encounter than submit to correction in a firearms class. Our fear of embarrassment in a firearms class is unfounded. That is the good news.

The person who puts his ego on the line is the shooter, not the firearms instructor. Every instructor I’ve ever met would much rather have willing students in his class, than have a person who is afraid to make mistakes and accept correction. The classroom is the perfect place to find out what you know and what you don’t. The classroom and range are where we can discover what works and what needs improvement.

It isn’t the instructor who will judge us or criticize our character. We are afraid of falling short of our own unrealistic expectations. How can we gather our courage enough to learn something about firearms safety and self-defense?

As a statement of fact, very few of us are as good as we imagine. On average, we’re average. I speak from personal experience.. and have the competition scores to prove just how average I am! The solution is simple.

Back up and take a basic course where you feel comfortable.

I need to step back an take refresher courses from time to time. I have NEVER taken a class I didn’t enjoy. I don’t know anyone who has, and that covers some extremes. I’ve been hot and cold and wet, but I left with a smile every time. I always came away smarter.

Maybe I convinced you, but not your friend. Your friend says, “I already know how to shoot.”

Then show us. Go take a class and be willing to learn.

  • Do you safely load, unload, and handle your firearm with confidence?
  • Do you hit stationary targets at intermediate distances?
  • Do you shoot on the move?
  • When you carry a gun on your body, do you get a perfect grip on your firearm every time?
  • Do you consistently present your firearm while wearing a concealment garment?
  • Do you remember the legal use of lethal force?

Take that first step. Ask the gun owners in your area where to train, because the course that fits an experienced gun owner in Hawaii won’t work for a beginner in Maine.

Believe me, there is so much to learn. I guarantee that you will learn something new. Even if you are in a basic class that you took years ago, you will remember things you’ve forgotten. You will also demonstrate what you know when you are out on the shooting range. Now you know what you know.

As a bonus, you will also discover what to learn next after you take your class. It is simply one small step at a time.

“Infringing on ‘bump’ stocks would justify infringing
on any firearm or device. We adamantly oppose that.”

JPFO rejects proposed accessory-regulations outright, and you should too.

–>  Look hard at incessant promotion of merciless slaughter
by Hollywood and on TV.

There”s only one reason both political parties, pundits and some groups are suddenly calling for infringing on gun accessories…because a homicidal maniac senselessly murdered scores of people using one recently. Using the acts of a psychotic spree killer, with media incitement of the masses to propose law, is simply wrong. By this “logic,” officials and their allies could justify banning every firearm in public hands.

Proposed bans and regulations on slide stocks are no different than any other gun-control proposals to limit freedoms you currently possess, and the reasons here are worse. In the false name of safety, hoplophobes, political elitists and demagogues seek to subarm you, while leaving insanely armed psychopaths ignored.

Hollywood and TV continues to pump outrageous mass-slaughter gun fantasy into our lives, insisting it has no effect, reaping billions, while body counts grow. JPFO insists that attention get paid to mass media’s rampant contribution to social decay in America, leading to increasingly frequent aberrant behavior, which media fails to recognize…or denies.
The Bonnie-and-Clyde glory consciously heaped on abject villains is a factor, face it.

If democrats or republicans enact any new infringement, easily spotted because it further restricts something you are currently free to do or own, they should be brought up on charges. Infringement is forbidden under oath, not something officials are empowered to do. That has a name. Usurping power is a serious offense.


See the Don’t Inspire Evil Initiative, broadly supported by police and civil-rights groups.

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of “gun control” as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called “gun control” does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does do is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. “You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.”


Why Background Checks Are A Lie



Background checks like so many gun control cons are passed with the left is dancing on the graves of gun crime victims.

Anti-gun-rights crusaders are calling for new and improved background checks. You know why. They’re dancing in the blood of victims. It’s what they do.

The problem is that background checks are a lie. The crusaders’ big claim, now repeated on all the old-news channels, is that the existing check has stopped about three million gun sales. What a glorious achievement. We need more of this, they say.

Not a single reporter in the entire profession has the brains, training or ethics to ask even the most obvious questions. This perpetuates the lie. Whether that’s deliberate, ignorance, stupidity, a plot, it doesn’t matter. What matters is it’s harmful. I’ll ask.

Where are the three million arrests?

It’s a serious crime to try to get guns if you legally can’t, you know that. The check is designed to find criminals trying to buy guns at retail. The criminals banned are really bad dudes–bank robbers, rapists, murderers, fugitives, addicts, the mentally unstable, spousal abusers, jihadis, illegal aliens, there’s a federal list. It’s a long-term felony for these people to try.

What good is the background check if it finds these villains, has them right there in the store with the FBI on the phone for Pete’s sake, and we just turn them away? Do you know how much money we’re spending on this? Do we want to catch and lock up “the element” or not? We have their signatures on a form for proof. The background check is a lie.

But wait… are these people really guilty of anything? That’s one of the excuses the Brady supporters and authorities give (they have many) for not locking up virtually any of the desperadoes they identify: a positive hit in the system is insufficient grounds for dispatching an arresting unit. It’s not exactly court-quality evidence to press charges. Say what?

Put another way, those three million background-check “victims” experienced denial of their fundamental constitutional right to buy firearms by government clerks and a list. They could not confront their accuser, did not get a reason for the denial, and in significant numbers the denials were wrong. They were essentially convicted and denied their rights without a trial. Their due process was revoked. The background check is worse than a lie, it’s a travesty. For those three million denials, prosecutions are extremely rare, in low two digits annually, convictions are apparently not even routinely tracked.

Left-wingers dreamed this up, and got it enacted dancing in blood (like now) back in the 1990s. It seems to make sense, like many of their schemes, but in practice it is totally bogus. It destroys due process, plays find and release with criminals, can’t distinguish between the guilty and the innocent and wastes scarce funds. They don’t care, they just promote it like crazy, maybe because they are and it is. Reporters march along.

The BIDS system, the Blind ID System, performs a similar function, but it costs far less and doesn’t register gun owners by the tens of millions, like the current “NICS” system seems to. Gun-owner registration is the primary but unspoken goal of the current plan, another lie. When Janet Reno first built the thing in Clarksburg, W.Va., back in 1998, not only was it a registration system, in direct violation of the enabling statute’s ban on recording (18 USC §922 s&t), she had the audacity to announce that her $250 million computer could not erase records. There is no end to the hubris of bureaucrats.

The FBI assures us none of the inbound gun-buyer data is stored in any way, but you can’t audit, and how much faith do you have in that? In the BIDS system, instead of gathering millions of innocent people’s names, licensed dealers receive the names of the bad guys, like wanted posters, and they check it out in their stores. Simple, efficient, encoded, logged so you can’t check out your daughter’s boyfriend. We trust certified dealers to sell guns, we can trust them to look up their customers in a secure phone book.

BIDS might make sense. The send-me-your-name NICS registration scheme is hoax-like from the word go. But ever since the last administration change, the nation is learning how much one side perpetually lies.
