Green Ops – Defensive Carbine I AAR

This is my second review for Green Ops. It’s also my second class I attended with them. This after action feedback and review will be about the rifle class taught by the team. Being mainly a pistol person for four and a half years, I’m starting to venture on to learning how to use a rifle correctly, effectively and efficiently. In particular the AR platform. Most all civilians in the United States who carry a firearm daily for self protection carry a pistol. It’s imperative that we spend more time and money to train and practice on the tool we carry daily. On the other hand, many of us also own the most popular rifle in American known as the AR-15. AR doesn’t stand for Assault Rifle, it stands for ArmaLite after the company that developed it in the 1950s. The AR-15 rifle platform is very versatile, you can use it for hunting, target shooting or self defense. Whether you already own one or plan on acquiring one, you should know how to effectively and safely use this rifle. You probably don’t use it or carry it everyday with you but it’s good to know how-to when needed. For this class, students are not limited to just bringing an AR-15, there was one student who brought a Tavor 🙄 😀 .

2017 Virginia Legislation Wrap Up – Gun Bills

We started the year by attending Lobby Day to attending each pro and anti gun bills in the GA sessions to writing emails and calling ours legislators about the bills we support or opposed. We are almost at the end of the road for the 2017 legislation. Good news is all anti-gun bills were buried this year and several good gun bills got sign in to law by our governor who is a man of his party’s agenda. He did vetoed couple of good life saving gun bills such as, HB 1582, Campbell, military 18 and older can apply for a CHP and SB 1299 by Vogel, protective orders become CHPs. Ironically the Democrats talk so much about protecting women and children but only if it politically concerns their interest.  We tried to override several good bills that were vetoed but failed yesterday.
I was watching the feeds yesterday from Philip Van Cleave, the president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League who was at the General Assembly watching the whole showdown.

Harvard University Study Reveals More Guns Equates to Less Crime

You read it right again. According to a more recent study by Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, which cites the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S National Academy of Sciences and the United Nations International Study on Firearms Regulation, the more guns a nation has, the less criminal activity.

The study came from the Harvard Journal of Law, that bastion of extreme, Ivy League liberalism. Titled Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?, the report “found some surprising things.”
It concludes the virtually unpublicized research report by attorney Don B. Kates and Dr. Gary Mauser. But the key is firearms in the hands of private citizens. Continue reading “Harvard University Study Reveals More Guns Equates to Less Crime” »

Thoughts On Active Shooter Situations

A brief rundown on what you should do in case of an active shooter(s) invent. This is taken from a retired Virginia Sheriffs Department captain.

1.  At the first inkling, get in motion!  Don’t hesitate, nor dither.  Don’t freeze and stay in one place.  Terrorists are weakest and least organized at the very beginning, as their plan is just starting to unfold.  That is the time to make your move, whatever form that takes.  As terrorists consolidate their control, your options will rapidly dry-up!

2.  Be aware of all exits, not just the door you came in through.  Know how you are going to get to an exit, and out of there, quickly.
