SOTG 893 - Federal Judge Throws Out AR Lawsuit show art SOTG 893 - Federal Judge Throws Out AR Lawsuit

Student of the Gun Radio

A Federal Judge in Ohio has thrown out a frivolous lawsuit brought against several manufacturers of AR-15 style rifles with prejudice. The judge stated that the legislature, not the courts, is the proper place to deal with firearms laws. During our Brownells Bullet Points, Paul and Jarrad discuss their recent testing of the Canik TP9 Elite SC. How can we engage in practical and realistic testing and evaluation of a new pistol? Also, for our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, Professor Paul has yet one more example of a homeless person attacking an innocent victim. The lesson of the story...

SOTG 892 - Tragedy in Michigan: Lessons Learned show art SOTG 892 - Tragedy in Michigan: Lessons Learned

Student of the Gun Radio

There was an unfortunate tragedy in Michigan this last week, what can we learn from it? A man was out in the woods alone, and suffered some form of accident. He attempted to tourniquet his leg with a belt, however, he unfortunately did not make it. It’s important that we take the time to learn from these kinds of events, to help prevent future incidents like this. People on the left love to talk about the first amendment whenever they want to prosecute a politician for their religious beliefs. Prof. Paul takes some time to go over what the first amendment really means, how it guarantees...

Student of the Gun Radio

The four people murdered and five wounded in Kansas City, Kansas was betrayed by a Judicial System that allowed the killer roam free when he should have been locked up in prison. Once again we witness a career criminal killing the innocent. Liberals are the least tolerant, most hateful, bullies in the world. Dave Chapelle recently learned that lesson and now Ellen DeGeneres is learning it. What did Ellen do to have liberals turn on her and spew their hatred?  What is going on with American Law Enforcement? Cities and counties cannot find enough people to fill their ranks and many of those...

Student of the Gun Radio

Last week we witnessed another act of Islamic terrorism in Germany. Once more, a truck was used as a weapon. Fortunately, the terrorist was not able to complete his task before the police arrested him.  We hop across the English Channel to Merry Old England where, despite heavily restrictive gun control laws, a thug with a gun attempted a carjacking. The story has a happy ending, but it still begs the question; with all that gun control, why do criminals still have guns?  Two bow hunters are lucky to be alive after a recent grizzly bear attack in Montana. The men were able to save...

Student of the Gun Radio

Unable to stay out of the news, Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack, proudly announced recently that the chain destroyed $5 million worth of “assault-style rifles” to keep them out of the hands of citizens. We have thoughts. During our Brownell’s Bullet Points we consider the “Bubba’d up” rifle. Why would you need or want to have a red dot optic and a light mounted to a rifle?  For our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we have a “Go Team Moment”.  A real estate agent was forced to save her life during an open house when a man produced a knife and rope. What are...

Student of the Gun Radio

Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question about rifle optics for his AR-15. What kind of performance can we reasonably expect from our scoped rifle? What determines the accuracy of a rifle? During our Quiet Time Moment from SilencerShop.com, we will take some time to appreciate a man who was arguably the Greatest 2nd Lieutenant in the history of the U.S. Army. He served our nation in a time before the Army decided to tell its troops to “run and hide”.  The FBI Uniformed Crime Report for 2018 is out. Despite what we are being told by the entrenched state-controlled media, deaths...

Student of the Gun Radio

Apparently they need more knife control in Paris. A recent convert to the Religion of Peace and Brotherhood went on a killing spree inside of a Paris police station leaving 4 dead. How hard did the media try to cover up his identity?  “Why do you carry all of that stuff?” was a question asked to Professor Paul regarding his everyday carry of the Fundamental Four.  We have a story from Baltimore that is a perfect example of why we carry “all that stuff” every day.  Remember, Mr. Pogue, the outdoor expert who said that wild animals almost never attack? We have a report...

Student of the Gun Radio

Fighting solves everything. The NRA fought back against the slander of the San Francisco city council and won. The disgusting elitists in SF have backed off on the claim that the NRA and all of its members are “domestic terrorists”. Would the United States Government deliberately poison the people? Before you answer, we have historical evidence to support the assertion that they indeed would do such a thing. Beware the dangers of prohibition.  We have a Fighting Fitness segment from SWAT Fuel and another USMC Leadership Trait to discuss. Tune in and listen louder.  Thanks for...

Are homeless people harmless? Many people might think that these “poor” people are just “down on their luck”. Reality dictates that is not necessarily the case. We have not one, but two recent incidents to discuss during our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters. During our Brownells Bullet Points, we will consider some critical or at least important gear choices that you should consider before attending a firearms training course.  Also, we will continue with our debrief and after-action from John Farnam’s Urban Rifle training course. We have student graduates in the studio...

Jarrad and several students of the gun participated in the Urban Rifle training course taught by renowned firearms instructor, John Farnam. Jarrad and our grad program members will join us in the studio to discuss the numerous lessons learned. We have a Quiet Time Moment for you from Silencershop.com. Professor Paul will continue with our examination of the United States Constitution. During this episode, we will consider the responsibilities of each branch of government and what happens when they do not follow the rules. We recorded so much valuable information that we could not fit it all...

From www.washingtonpost.com:

The plot to storm the girls’ bathroom started with a Snapchat message and ended with a knee to the crotch.

It all went down at North Pole High School in North Pole, Alaska — a small, Christmas-loving city southeast of Fairbanks — on the morning of April 4. The snap at issue: a student transitioning from female to male posted a selfie from the boys’ bathroom.

Some boys at the high school who saw the selfie, however, were angry and decided they would walk into the girls’ bathroom to take their own Snapchat selfie “as a form of protest,” Fairbanks North Star Borough School District Superintendent Karen Gaborik told The Washington Post.

From www.marinecorpstimes.com:

In fall 2018, weapons experts at the annual Marine Corps meeting on all things marksmanship warned that without action on a shortage of working rifle optics, shooters at The Basic School in Virginia, Parris Island in South Carolina, and Weapons and Field Training Battalion at Edson Range in California would face “critical impact” on training within six to 12 months.

A combination of a shortage and a number of damaged rifle combat optics used on the M4 carbine had prompted the warning.

That issue arose in a recent Marine administrative message posted online reviewing findings from the October 2018 “Combat Marksmanship Symposium,” held at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia.
