Saratoga, WY | Student of the Gun HQ- Legos have long been a threat to your feet, but are they really a threat to your safety? Did you ever think someone would be getting arrested for imaginary gunplay? Is this what tyranny looks like now?
Paul and Jarrad answer these questions and more this week. The guys discuss what really happens after you have to use your gun for self-defense with a fellow Student of the Gun, as well as what are Inalienable Rights and where do they come from. But perhaps the highlight of the week, the guys play a series of stupid quotes from esteemed U.S. Government elected officials. You are sure to have a great laugh.
All that and more on this week’s installment of Student Of The Gun Radio, Listen Louder!
Ep. 752 – Attack of the Killer Legos
Watch out for the killer legos. Apparently, the Lego toys are so dangerous and menacing that one school felt the need to call the police in to deal with them. Break of the duct tape, you are going to need it.
Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question about gun bans and stockpiling weapons. Do we think that rifles will be “banned” in the United States? Professor Paul has a thoughtful answer.
Also, during our Quiet Time Moment from SilencerShop.com, we offer you some ammunition for your brain. We want you to have a fully loaded brain and be armed with facts not feelings.
Ep. 753 – What Really Happens When you Use your Gun in Self-Defense
Using a gun in self-defense does not always make you the clear-cut good guy. The police and prosecutors might not see you as a hero, but as a villain. One of our Grad Program members had to use his gun to stop an attacker, but the story did not end there. We have a number of lessons to consider.
How badly do you want to make hippies cry and the weak uncomfortable? During our Brownell’s Bullet Points Guns and Gear segment, we have the perfect tool to make the weak nervous and hippies scared.
Also, during this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, the Professor reminds you of one very critical but often overlooked piece of gear that is essential for the armed citizen. Listen louder.
Ep. 753 Pt. 2 – Imaginary Gun, Real Tyranny
The gun was pretend, it was imaginary, but the tyranny of a heavy-handed bully state is all too real. Why would a police officer put handcuffs on a child and drag them off over something that did not exist?
We have another Fighting Fitness segment for you from our friends at SWAT Fuel. Professor Paul will consider the importance of mental focus while Jarrad will discuss dealing with setbacks.
We have more motivational music for you. And, in addition to the music, Paul will give you a little music history lesson. Listen louder.
Ep. 753 Pt. 3 – “I Support Gun Rights, but…”
The Governor of Oklahoma just exposes herself as the politician most people thought she was. Apparently, you can have your rights, as long as you get permission from the government first.
From where do Inalienable Rights come? Is the state in charge of handing out rights to those who ask permission first? It would seem that the longer one is a politician, the more inclined they are to believe that rights come from government.
We have motivational music for you, never fear. We also have a collection of audio clips submitted by our Grad Program members. Just how stupid and ignorant our the elected officials of the United States? Listen louder to find out.
