Pretty good piece from Herschel Smith at the Captain's Journal titled, quite appropriately, "ALL YOUR GUN BASE ARE BELONG TO US:"
I know, you don’t want to believe that the polls are badly misleading when they ask about those ethereal platitudes, as opposed to when the specifics are presented, complicating things for you. You don’t want to believe it even when your own press tells you this. So the 90%+ number must be right, and the evil NRA is to blame, or your own tactics, or lack of money, or something like that. It cannot be that the people aren’t interested in your gun control measures.Read the whole thing.
I also want to send you to Kevin Reeve's blog at OnPoint Tactical. He has a great entry on how to stay safe in crowds, which is very consistent with what we've taught on THE BEST DEFENSE and on DOWN RANGE Radio. I would very much like to take OnPoint's Urban Escape and Evasion course...with a little luck I can get that on my schedule later this year. One change I am making is adding trauma kits with tourniquet dedicated to each car, augmenting the smaller first aid kits...maybe the Blue Force NOW! and the optional tourniquet.
