Your Tactical Training Scenario…Men in the Bushes

Imagine the following scenario... It’s 9pm and you are taking your dog for a walk around your neighborhood. You live in a “safe” area and you have walked your dog on this route every night for years without a problem. It’s dark, and as you walk you notice some shapes moving in the bushes ahead of you. You initially think the shapes are deer, so you continue to walk. As you get closer, two men...

Report: UK Gun Owner Loses Licenses Over Social Media Presence

In 2016, UK shooter and popular YouTube gun channel personality Callum Long-Collins told the BBC, “Being British and a firearms owner, it almost feels illegal to have any sort of opinion on using guns for self-defense.” The comments appear to have been proved correct. According to an April 23 article in The Times titled, “Gun licences stripped from shooting activist over YouTube comments,” Long-...

Identifying the Problem of Gun Control Research

In 2017, anti-gun researcher John Donohue and his team released a study that purported to find that Right to Carry laws increase overall violent crime rates. The paper was updated six months later seemingly to address criticism of its methodology and produced the same conclusion.

Tactical Defense Institute's Partner Tactics Class prompts self-reflection

I recently attended the “Partner Tactics” class at Tactical Defense Institute (TDI). I’ve taken most of their handgun classes (including this one, a few years ago) and help with the FASTER Saves Lives training at TDI, and with Chris Cerino.

What to Make of Crime in England?

Sometimes it’s hard to understand what things are really like “across the pond.” Anti-gun extremists in America reflexively point to England whenever the discussion about adding restrictions, and especially banning firearms, arises here in the United States. England, after all, had banned virtually all semi-automatic and pump-action rifles and shotguns in the 1980s, then imposed a near total ban...

Trump Administration, Other Pro-Gun Heavyweights Lend Support on Pending Supreme Court Case

As NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox reported in March, the U.S. Supreme Court has taken up a challenge by an NRA state affiliate to a New York City gun control scheme that effectively prohibits lawfully licensed handgun owners from leaving the city with their own firearms. The plaintiffs in the case have raised a number of objections to the regime, the foremost of which is that it violates...
