SOTG 908 - The End of the SBR? show art SOTG 908 - The End of the SBR?

Student of the Gun Radio

Could we possibly see the end of the SBR, or more pointedly, the end of restrictive laws governing the SBR? The answer is “yes” if we can get behind some of our congressmen who have proposed an end to the egregious short-barreled rifle restrictions. Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question for us regarding selecting an appropriate concealed carry handgun for a small woman. Is .380 acp the answer? Or, is 9mm the way to go? During our Quiet Time Moment from SilencerShop.com, Professor Paul reminds us of the value of mentors. He takes a moment to pay tribute to one of his mentors who...

Student of the Gun Radio

If you carry your gun while Christmas shopping, does that make you paranoid? Are concealed carriers just asking for trouble by being armed during the holiday season? We consider recent incidents that shed light on that subject. During our Brownells Bullet Point segment, Paul discusses a recent AR magazine upgrade. We also spotted a very interesting new product on the Brownells website that fit with our fighting with lights topic. We also have a SOTG Homeroom for you from Crossbreed Holsters.

Student of the Gun Radio

During today’s installment of the Warrior of the Week, we have posed a great question; Should you join a Militia? Now the media has done a good job the last decade or so making “Militia” seem like a dirty word. But Prof. Paul dives into what it really means, and whether you should consider joining or establishing one in your area. If you are in Virginia though, that may become difficult soon. The socialists up there are attempting to make the assembly of a militia, and certain forms of training, a Felony. However, there is this little thing called the Efficiency of the Militia Act A.K.A....

Student of the Gun Radio

We wish this were fiction, but killer hogs are a reality in the United States, particularly in Texas. One small town is mourning the loss of a woman killed by wild hogs this last week. How did the problem get this bad?  During our Brownells Bullet Points, we consider the Ghost Gun boogeyman and the reality of the Polymer80 products. Should be afraid of Ghost Guns or should we focus instead on instruments of liberty?  For our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we once more focus on being dangerous on demand. Can the police keep you safe from monsters and killers? What happens...

How rare are attacks on BART trains? According to the Chief of Police of BART, attacks on BART passengers are indeed “rare”. This comes as little comfort to the family of a man who was stabbed to death on a BART train, in the middle of the day, this week.  Would you like to be the SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week and have your voice played on SOTG Radio? Professor Paul will remind you just how that can happen. Paul and Zach will also refresh your memory and let you know about all of the holiday goodness that is coming your way for Christmas.

Student of the Gun Radio

When your Universal Healthcare system is broke and failing, what do you do? You withhold care from people who you have accused of “Hate Speech”. That should save the UK millions of pounds. During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, Professor Paul discusses the idea of “breaking in guns.” In this day and age, is there a legitimate reason why a gun might need a break-in period? Also, for this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we ponder the question, do people who are poor or “broke” have the right to self-defense? Before you answer, the Internet gun community might...

Student of the Gun Radio

Pro-Democracy protesters in Hong Kong have begun to fight back against the Chinese communist police, but not in the way you might expect. Disarmed by a tyrannical regime, protesters have gone medieval in their fight to have their demands heard.  Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a detailed and thoughtful question as to just what American patriots can do, besides vote once every four years, to return the nation to its former glory?  Also, we have a Quiet Time Moment from SilencerShop.com. This week will consider the importance of the LMI (like-minded individual), how we can find...

Student of the Gun Radio

In a shocking example of 911 failure, a Salt Lake City woman and her sister fought for their lives against a knife-wielding maniac and the 911 police dispatcher FAILED to send them help because they did not answer all of the required questions.  During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, Professor Paul discusses a recent experience from the rifle range. Can factory new ammunition fail? What is more important, cost or quality control? Also, for this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we consider what happens when the state forbids the peasants from being dangerous on demand....

We have a special Veterans Day discussion for you today. What role do veterans have regarding leadership in an ailing nation? Professor Paul focuses on veterans refusing to accept the status of a victim. Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week wants to know why we consider Online Great Books to be such a valuable resource and program. Think of OGB as a training program for your brain.  Also, we have a Quiet Time Moment from SilencerShop.com. Paul has some recommended reading for all Americans, particularly veterans. We will refer back to the Patriot Bookshelf. Thanks for being a part of SOTG!...

SOURCES

From www.ammoland.com:

In the United States, some governmental authorities are strongly pushing the use of bear spray over other methods of protection against bear attacks. From the Montana Hunter Ed Course:

In sudden encounters, bear spray has proven to work. Bears sprayed with bear spray often stop attacking and, as such, are less likely to inflict serious injury. Use a firearm only as a last resort and only if bear spray is unavailable. Always use your bear spray to help a hunting partner who is being attacked. Misdirected bear spray is survivable; bullets are not. Bears wounded with an arrow, knife, or firearm may intensify the attack, and killing a bear charging at full speed is difficult at best. If you shoot a bear in self-defense, leave the scene as soon as it is safe, and report the incident to Fish, Wildlife & Parks immediately.

From www.ammoland.com:

In 2018, Detroit had 25 times the national average of reported justifiable homicides. The police chief of Detroit, James Craig, supports the residents' right to self defense. He supports the issuance of concealed carry permits. From detroitnews.com:

The county's report shows there were 289 homicides in Detroit in 2018, although the county lists all homicides, whereas Detroit, like most cities, doesn't include justifiable homicides in its report because those aren't crimes.

Assistant Detroit Police Chief David LeValley said there were 18 justifiable homicides in the city last year. Including those in the city's count raises the number of homicides to 279 — 10 fewer than the county reported.

Detroit's population in 2018 was listed as 672,662. The number of murders in Detroit were listed as 261. This equates to a homicide rate of 38.8 per 100,000 population. It is the second highest city in the nation. However, the number of murders are considerably lower than they were in 2012, just before Chief Craig took over. The numbers of murders are the lowest in 50 years. The population of Detroit has dropped; thus the rate of murders is still high. The rate was 55.2 per 100,000 in 2012. In 2012, the interim police chief, Chester Logan, blamed the homicide rate on guns.
