Blog: Gun Laws: The Institutional Racism You’ve Heard About
One of the many new changes that the year 2020 brought was the mainstream use of the term “Institutional Racism.” The phrase is heated, controversial, and its acceptance is a partisan divide (like everything these days). It is the burden of each reader to decide if institutional racism exists, but it is clear that there is a direct line connecting the results of extreme gun laws and the conditions in society described as institutional racism.
John & Steph kicked it off with Tuesday's webinar and shared their top 10 lessons learned after analyzing 30,000+ videos of defensive gun use.
Then on Thursday we had a great 'Intro to the Armed Lifestyle' class, with some live fire practice at the end. As you can tell, students left with big smiles after learning and having fun with John & Neil.
Friday's Happy Hour was DEE-LISH-OUS! Thank you Shakespeare Pub for the tasty tasty food! It was great seeing old & new friends and partaking in Scottish eggs and puff pastries.
And the 2 Day Evidence Based Live Fire class was AWESOME! John & Neil did a tremendous job helping everybody improve their skill & competency with their firearm. They found the sweet spot in making training fun, funny, and effective.
Stay tuned because we have some more pictures from the event on the way.
Also, a BIG THANK YOU to all the supporters of the Law Enforcement Training Scholarship! With everybody's help, we were able to raise enough funds to send 3 officers to the 2 Day training class with a private session with John & Neil. There is such a need for training for our officers, Gun Owners Radio has decided to run the scholarship year-round. Be on the look out for the next phase of our Law Enforcement Training Scholarship program! Thank you GlockStore for helping to make the program a success!
Gun Owners Radio appreciates the support of our fantastic sponsors that helped make the event happen. Thank you US Law Shield for leading the way as the title sponsor! We are also so grateful for the support of our valued sponsors:
If you were not able to join this year's event, make sure to listen to Gun Owners Radio for announcements about next year's COVER YOUR ASP WEEK! We plan on making it bigger and better!
Win a Gun by Having Fun!
It's time to step up your volunteer game!
Not only is volunteering a great way to give back to San Diego County Gun Owners and the Second Amendment community in general, it's super easy and fun. You spend a few hours at your local gun shop (admit it, you do that anyway!) and talk to people about how important it is to fight for your gun rights, and how SDCGO is accomplishing that.
Plus... we have an exciting new incentive program starting in 2021! Every shift for which you volunteer and work will earn you an entry into our quarterly drawing for A GUN!
Sign up for shifts today on our volunteer page. Check back often as we continue to add more dates.
