CCW Lifestyle Series # 11 – Failing the Victim Selection Process

As legally armed citizens we train to always avoid getting into self-defense situations, remember you win every fight you avoid. Criminals tend to go through a process when selecting victims. The subject today is what we can do to ensure we fail the victim selection process. A good overall strategy is to follow John Farnham’s […]

The Analogy with Voting Reveals a Concern

The Analogy with Voting Reveals a Concern By Lucas J. Mather, Ph.D. I’ve written here before cautioning our use of words in Second Amendment activism (See A Caution About Words in Second Amendment Activism). We need to be as concerned with crafting our arguments as we are with safely handling firearms. Words are as powerful […]

Gun control is killing our kids

This is a guest post by 17-year-old high school student Kaylee Allen. On November 14th, 2019 a gunman walked into my school where I was an 11th grade student.  Saugus High School was a place I felt safe and protected, but on that day, his intent was to kill. At 7:38am he pulled out his […]

The video captures a woman being threatened by an unhinged teenager and her equally unhinged mother (normal people don’t chase others through a parking lot screaming at them). The victim draws a legally carried firearm in self-defense. Fortunately the […]

Where Does It End?

By now most of you have seen the video and heard the story of the armed couple defending their home and themselves from a mob of violent “protesters”. I say violent as my definition of “peaceful protesters” doesn’t include destroying an iron gate and storming onto private property. It also doesn’t include refusing to leave […]

How to Legally Transport Firearms in the Peoples Republic of California

In the last few months we’ve seen a dramatic increase in gun sales across the country. At first this was fueled by the public’s reaction to government restrictions due to the COVID19 crisis.
