The team spent a glorious long weekend in Big D. We have live reports from the floor of the NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits held in Dallas, Texas.

Did you hear about the “mass shooting” in Philadelphia? We are willing to bet that unless you live in Pennsylvania, you did not. You might ask yourself why? The media loves blood in the streets and they love pushing gun control, why bury this story?  How much scope is too much scope? During our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc we consider the pros and cons of high powered optics.  Does Gun Control make you safer? Are countries that restrict gun ownership “safer”? For our SOTG Homeroom we will address a horrific story from Mexico where unarmed tourists were murdered for their truck...

A township in Michigan has declared itself a 2nd Amendment sanctuary and has invited all of the adult citizens of said township to become members of a citizens’ militia. Besides the Bill of Rights, is the existence of the militia codified by law in the United States? During our SOTG Homeroom from Student of the Gun University, we will examine the new law allowing teachers and school staff members in Tennessee to be armed at work. Tennessee is not the first state to arm teachers, though, based upon the behavior of the leftwing lunatics you would think this move is unprecedented. Also, during...

Once more, we have evidence that Islamic terrorists were drugged up on captagon, the poor man’s cocaine or “chemical courage” when they slaughtered innocent people in a concert hall in Moscow. The primary question you must ask yourself is whether or not you have the skill and mindset to stand between evil and the innocent. During our Tech Talk from EOTech, we will consider a brand new optic in the LPVO arena.  EOTech will be releasing the new VUDU X line very soon. Keep an eye out for a video review.

The terrorist attack at the concert hall in Moscow was horrible, but we have to examine it and learn from it. What can American citizens do and how can they prepare to deal with the threats that we are facing?  During our SOTG Homeroom, from SOTGU, we will address a deadly shark attack. What could have been done differently? Could the victim have been saved? Whose responsibility is it to be prepared to save a life? Do you need an LPVO on your home defense rifle?

Do you have your medical gear on you at all times? If not, why not? We bring you a story today that might hopefully make you reconsider your stance on having medical gear readily available all the time. Because as Prof. Paul & Jarrad were on their way down to Texas, they were directly behind a rear-ending on the highway, and instantly THEY became the first responders. Speaking of Texas, SOTGU came to Texas and held the Martial Application of the Pistol class this past weekend! It was a fantastic event, and we’ve got an after action report for you to enjoy.

From freebeacon.com:

MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders unwittingly made the American case for the Second Amendment during a report Tuesday on the political upheaval in Venezuela.

Anchor Andrea Mitchell introduced Sanders for his report by commenting on the surprising ability of Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro to stay in power, despite the pressure on him to step down.

"Not only hanging on but he appears to still control the military," Sanders said. "You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that's open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country."

From www.sanders.senate.gov:

Washington, it seems to us, is focusing on one gap -- between spending and revenue -- to the exclusion of others. That's unwise, because these other gaps also pose threats to America and its social structure. They, too, ought to be closed.

Take the jobs gap, which doesn't need much explanation. There are far fewer jobs than people seeking work, which is why unemployment is close to 10 percent or higher, if you count those who would like a job but have given up looking. According to economist Laura D'Andrea Tyson, writing last week in The New York Times, the U.S. economy would have to add about 12.3 million jobs to return to employment levels that existed before the 2008-2009 recession blindsided America.

A quarter of a million people enter the labor force each month. At the current pace of recovery -- which is to say slower than slow -- closing this gap could take 10 years or more. Talk about a lost decade.

10 Famous People Who Praised Venezuela’s Descent Into Socialist Hell

Nearly two decades of socialism has left oil-rich Venezuela in an unparalleled crisis.

Recent figures show that a majority of Venezuelans go to bed hungry and 15 percent of people eat garbage to survive. The country desperately lacks basic resources, such as medicine and power.

Mass protests and riots are now breaking out across the country, as dictator Nicolas Maduro attempts to discard the Venezuelan constitution to tighten his grip on power.

However, Venezuela’s problems date back to 1999, with the election of socialist president Hugo Chávez, whose mass redistribution of wealth and financial mismanagement laid the groundwork for the country’s economic collapse.
