FALSE PROPHET:  Gun grabbers pinning hopes on Hillary for President

Do they really think any electable candidate is going to go against the beliefs of 2/3rds of Americans? Hillary’s White House bid energizes gun control supporters (The Hill) – Gun-control advocates have high hopes for Hillary Clinton’s presidential run, viewing her...

ADVENTURES IN IRRELEVANCE:  “Unforgotten” is Illinois gun grabbers’ latest FAILBOAT adventure

All aboard the FAILBOAT! #Unforgotten.  It’s a new hash-tag created by the desperate to maintain a sense of relevance in Illinois for the Illinois Coalition Against Handgun Ownership, or Violence, or something like that.

GUN FREE ZONE FAIL:  Chicago woman sexually assaulted, beaten, robbed by middle school thug

Chicago “urban” culture was on display this week on a Chicago Transit Authority train as a 15-year-old middle school student savagely beat, sexually assaulted and robbed an innocent woman. The train, of course, was a “GUN FREE ZONE” where the law-abiding Illinois residents who have concealed carry license cannot carry the means with which to protect themselves from savage...

STUPID HURTS:  Grieving parents file nuisance lawsuit, now pay the price.  Meanwhile the Brady Campaign is nowhere to be found.

GOOD:  Absent reasonable suspicion, police can’t make motorists wait for dog sniff

Most cops are like most gun owners:  Good guys doing their job. Unfortunately there are a very few who aren’t good guys and don’t appreciate that civilians can own and transport firearms and are even less supportive that some civilians can even carry firearms.  Want an example?

LAG TIME:  Reactionary gap, the Tueller drill, and use of force

Here’s a great piece by Ron Martinelli about the reactionary gap and perception lag, something we touch upon in our GSL Defense Training Illinois 16-hour CCW classes and talk more in depth about in our Intermediate Personal Protection classes.

NOTHINGBURGER:  Anti-gun folks get nowhere against people who know the law

Gun laws are things that most people who hate guns don’t understand. Then gun haters make fools of themselves spouting what they “think” is the law. It’s embarrassing.  But do they learn?  Hardly. Such is the case with a couple of Congressmen, Ken Buck and Trey Gowdy, who posed with an AR-15 inside the US Capitol. Critics called the...

GRANDMA’S GOT A GUN:  Attack thwarted thanks to good grandma with a gun

The four steps of the bad guy’s attack plan are: Observe, Stalk, Close, Attack. Some gun-haters might be surprised that a “gun” website would say you don’t even need a gun to thwart 90%  of attacks. Yes, it’s true. Thwarting step 1.  Observing for “easy” victims.  If you don’t look like you’re an easy mark, you’ve already spared yourself...

FOR THOSE “GUN FREE” LOCATIONS:  Krav Maga (aka John’s latest training)

  A few weeks ago, the Bloomington Pantagraph sent a reporter and a photographer out to cover the Krav Maga class I’ve been attending.  To their credit, they stayed for most of the class.  The reporter’s take on the class was long on the “fitness” component.  “The latest fitness trend”?  C’mon.  I’m still new there, but I haven’t yet...
