Situational Awareness is not just aTalking Point

Lack of situational awareness can get get you killed.

Here we have a surveillance video of a verbal dispute that turned deadly for one of the participants in Ecuador. The victim made several mistakes. Thinking it's just a 'pissing' match (which he should have just attempted to walk away from in the first place) he allows the younger man to get right up in front of him. He then compounds this by staring the younger man in the face instead of watching the man's hands. You can watch as the younger man keeps his right hand blocked to his victims view by keeping the right side of his body angled away from the victim. You can then watch him very casually slip the knife from either his right pocket or the waistband of his pants.
Something as simple as a step to the side away from the younger man or even having his arms up in the old 'Jack Benny' stance with one arm across the body and the other with it's hand by his face or neck would have been allowed him to block or deflect the stab. What he could or would have done after that is another issue, but at least he would have been alive to either fight back or run away.

Just so you know, this video is pretty graphic towards the end

Sometimes What Happens in Vegas, Doesn't Always Stay in Vegas

Like news of a burglary attempt at a Rolex Store inside the Bellagio hotel Just before 1:00 AM that resulted in gunfire and scared hotel guests fleeing and ducking for cover.

Somebody should have told these guys that Oceans 11 was just a movie.

Another Win for Firearms Carry Rights in....The Cheddar State?

YES!! Wisconsin. An obscure regulation in the city of Madison that was enacted in 2005 banned the carrying of any weapons on public transportation. Specifically Buses. Well, eventually someone fell afoul of this regulation and a court case ensued.

Suffice to say the city of Madison did not fare well.

The Wheels Grind Slowly, but Slowly They Grind

This little item coming out of the Trump administration never made it to the mainstream media. Some of you will say that this is not important. But once you start adding up all the little rules and regulations that took place under the last administration over the last 8 years, you see the true meaning of the term "death by a thousand cuts".

There is now a 4 year window of opportunity to reverse the anti-firearms tilt of the government, and even if you don't hunt (or fish) regulation changes and reversals of this type need to be seen as the positive change it represents.
