0317 - Safety and Security Trends in our Schools

/
School shootings are a complex and challenging problem to solve. The reactionary position that LE, school administrators and students find themselves in seems to be a difficult scenario in which to succeed, however, the stakes are high. We value our children tremendously as we should and a the same time we often leave them in precariously exposed positions without the tools to deal with serious problems that can occur. Some news this month would seem to indicate that we are correcting course to a degree and working to regain ground in the battle to keep our children safe. Today we will talk about some of the issues that surround school violence.

Why Should You Carry a Pistol when you Work Out? I can't really answer this question for you. Only you can understand what you should be prepared to deal with and why. What I can do is tell you some of the issues that you should look at that might help you to understand why it might be a good idea for you to carry.

0250 - Interview With Ryan Workman Author of 50 State CCW App

/
Our smart phones are only as smart as the information they are able to provide us. Ryan Workman of Workman Consulting has made my phone smarter with his 50 State CCW app. The app puts important information at my finger tips relating to concealed carry and the law. If you travel between states, you need to have this app to help you decipher the complex laws surrounding CCW in multiple states.

0245 - The Christmas Spirit

/
Lets not forget that because it is Christmas we owe it to our husbands and wives, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers to be there to enjoy Christmas this year and for many more to come. Embrace the Christmas Spirit, but never forget that your innocent life has much more value than the life of scum no matter what time of year it is, and not just to your family, but to society as a whole. When someone has earned it, there is nothing wrong with giving the gift of multiple palm strikes to the face or shots to the torso. Get in the spirit and be generous!

0244 - Last Minute Christmas Shopping Cart Tactics

/
Here I am with something in both hands when it hits the fan. Because of how our bodies are wired even if I want to open my hand, drop my Angry Bird, and draw my pistol, I might find that to be a challenging prospect based on the grasp reflex that is often experienced in stressful situations. We can see this reaction in dash cam video where law enforcement engage in serious life or death conflicts while holding their citation book in their support hand. It is as if some one has bound the book to the hand. Imagine me, unable to break my grasp on a fluffy stuffed animal, unable to draw my pistol, beating off two dirtbags with a fluffy stuffed animal in each hand. A flailing, furry, mess for sure. Yeah, this is the kind of stuff that goes through my head.

0230 - Keep the Dark in Mind

/
Yes, last weekend we set our clocks back. it is the signal for what I call the "lighting round." The time of year when everything seems to kick into overdrive. Before we know it 2011 will be finished and we will be kicking off our final year here on planet Earth. This time of year, depending how far north or south you are located can be difficult because of the incredibly short days. As the nights grow longer it becomes more difficult to get things done and we need to make some adjustments.

0229 - Avoiding Civil Unrest

/
We are all going to die. I guess it sucks, but either way it is fact. Also fact is that I don't want to die by being beaten to death by a feces throwing, explosive launching dirt bag in the middle of some protest that he doesn't even know what is about. Mobs are bad news. I don't like bad news, so I work to avoid civil unrest.

0228 - Be Aware Picking Up the Morning News

/
One of the things I love about the SSA Podcast is how the topics I write on develop through the writing process. I may begin writing about a specific topic and find out as I continue to work that I am illustrating completely different points than I thought I was going to be leading to. That is the case today. I started out to tell you to pay attention to how you handle yourself when you are heading out to grab the morning paper. As I made my case, I made an equally strong case for some darkness operational tips and why we need to think like a dirt bag. So, skip your meds and see if you can follow along!
