Saratoga, WY | Student of the Gun HQ- This week on Student of the Gun Radio, Professor Paul discusses what to do if you encounter an active shooter. Also this week, a Chicago gun moll dodges jail time, how guns for freedom fighters ended up in the hands of ISIS, and is it cheaper to drug America’s veterans rather than treating them properly?
All that and more on this week’s installment of Student Of The Gun Radio, Listen Louder!
Ep. 734 – Active Shooter: You are on Your Own
What is expected of you during an active shooter situation? If an active shooter attack took place at your church, school, workplace, can you rely on the police to come in an save you? Are the police obligated to protect you as an individual?
Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week is puzzled by what seems to be an incongruity in what kind of identification and paperwork some FFL holders require. The Professor will do his best to help you understand from where this comes.
During this week’s Quiet Time from SilencerShop.com, we go back to the book; Examining the Armed Citizen. Chapter 4 considers the role of police officers in keeping individual citizens safe from harm. Do the police have a Constitutional duty to protect each person in America from harm?
Ep.735 – No Jail for Chicago Gun Moll
What happened to a Chicago gun moll after she was busted for giving guns to felons and gang members? Chicago politicians love to brag about their ‘strict gun laws’ and how ‘tough on crime’ they are.
During our Brownells Bullet Points “Guns and Gear” segment, the Professor has a serious question for you all. Now that spring is here, what do you plan to do with your guns and gear? How about getting into a training class?
Also, for our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we will discuss the 4 Absolute Essentials that every armed citizen should have on their person, always. How can you be “dangerous on demand”?
Ep. 735 Pt. 2 – Guns for Freedom Fighters, Not Citizens
Remember the “Freedom Fighters” that Comrade Barry supported? It seems that the military weapons that the United States was supposed to be sending to freedom fighters ended up in the hands of ISIS. Who could have seen that coming?
During our Fighting Fitness segment from SWAT Fuel, Jarrad and Paul consider ways to lose weight other than getting on a treadmill. Jarrad offers some thoughtful advice on the subject.
What do you get with 21st Century Socialism? I would seem that you get the same thing that you got from 20th Century socialism; death and destruction. What happened to the People’s Paradise that was supposed to be Venezuela?
Ep. 735 Pt. 3 – VA: Cheaper to Drug Vets, than to Repair Them
Once more, we are witnessing the failure that is the VA healthcare system. The Veterans Administration has been fraught with “waste, fraud, and corruption” since World War II, yet we keep throwing good money on top of bad. We hate to say we told you so, but we did.
What does the Governor of Connecticut, Danielle Malloy, think about the NRA? Like all faithful Socialist Democrats, the CT Governor likes to blame the innocent and excuse the guilt.
Apparently a gun just went off in one California high school. At least that is what you might take from the story. Well, a person was holding the gun, but according to reports it “went off”. We hope the gun is feeling better very soon.
