Armed Defenders in the Classroom - Reality Replaces Myth

Arming teachers is more than a concept, an idea, or a theory. Armed school staff are now a well-worn reality. The FASTER program teaches school staff to stop a threat and to treat the injured. That program has been in place for the last five years and has trained over a thousand teachers. These first responders have many days of instruction. Once they are back home, these teachers apply what they...

Profiling an Active Killer

What motivates a person to become a mass killer? Using reason and logic may only give us a headache as we try to deduce the motive of an unreasonable and illogical rogue human. It may not be any easier if he survives. Profiling such a rogue would be difficult for most. Their motives can be as complicated as they are. Some surviving active killers have described a real or imagined wrong done to...

Study: Stricter Gun Laws Haven’t Made Communities Safer from Mass Shootings

A trauma research team has developed a profile of commonalities among communities where mass shootings have occurred that includes a shortage of mental health professionals, a relative lack of socialization opportunities, higher rates of income inequality, and relatively high housing costs. ... The findings were presented [last week] at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress 2018 in...

Get out the pro-gun rights vote

It’s cliché but true. Whoever gets their people out to vote will win the election. If nothing else, President Trump’s win in 2016 proved that using past models to predict elections is a failed idea. Trump won Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. No Republican candidate has taken those three states since Ronald Reagan won 49 states in 1984, setting a record with 525 electoral votes. The same is...

When politicians speak truthfully on guns, BELIEVE THEM

Ever want to know what a politician really thinks about gun ownership? Just listen to what they say when they don’t think you’re listening. We’ve been given a case study this week thanks to Project Veritas . U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) has claimed to support Second Amendment freedoms, but she cleared up any doubt when she was caught on camera saying she’d support a ban on modern sporting...

Study Finds Fewer People Willing to Answer Questions about Gun Ownership

A common thought (maybe even a rational one) is that gun owners hesitate to share their status as gun owners in surveys. It makes perfect sense, particularly in times of heightened concerns that anti-gun politicians are plotting to restrict our 2nd Amendment rights and the routine vilification of law-abiding gun owners by politicians, celebrities, and the media. A recent study confirmed that more...
