Up until just a generation ago, rifle marksmanship programs were familiar features on school campuses in America. Millions of Americans learned to shoot at school programs taught in school basements, in school gyms and at ranges the schools took school children to as part of their school's marksmanship programs.
Then it started disappearing in the 60s, even more in the 70s. By the 80s it had almost vanished. Very few schools remain that have active rifle marksmanship programs. But, that is starting to change. And we can help change it.
When I was a kid, everyone I knew had firearms and did at least some type of shooting. Hunting, skeet, target practice and just plinking on evenings and weekends. Even all of the girls I knew growing up knew how to shoot. Now, I live rurally, and of the kids living out rurally today, very few have had any kind of experience, introduction or instruction in firearms and shooting. I imagine the kids in cities have had even less.
This poses a very real problem for the future of our 2nd Amendment rights. When these millions of kids, who have never had any involvement in the shooting sports industry become of voting age, they will have no dog in this hunt. To them, having the right to posses or use a firearm means nothing. They have never owned a firearm, never experienced shooting, so what would they miss? Getting rifle marksmanship into the Schools should be a priority for Americans who are concerned about the direction the erosion of our 2A rights has been taking. We should be pushing for a very up front and aggressive educational program for rifle marksmanship in our schools.
Jim and Kim Heath, two of the Appleseed Project volunteers have been doing just that and they will be on the show tonight to tell us how to go about getting rifle marksmanship programs into our schools.

"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." -Col. Jeff Cooper, Firearms Pioneer “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.” -Richard Henry Lee, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and crafter of the Second Amendment "The unarmed man is not just defenseless -- he is also contemptible." -Machiavelli Minute-of-Angle, Point of Aim/Point of Impact, Natural Point of Aim, Cheek Weld, Trigger Control, Off-Hand, Kneeling, Prone...

Welcome to the show! After a brief hiatus, I'm back! On today's show I discuss the famous quote of outgoing President Dwight D. Eisenhower about the impending consequences of a military industrial complex. The reality is that Western society had long been militarized before the 1950's. Commercial law is born out of the law of the seas, or maritime law which falls under admirality jurisdiction where the Admiral (or Captain of a ship) has full control over that ship and is the C(E)O of that vessel or corporation. The United States Government has been incorporated since at least 1933, again thanks to the Emergency Banking Act of 1933. Since that time Congress has acted under the authority of the infamous Commerce Clause to the U.S. Constitution, having its power limited and controlled via bankruptcy to the Federal Reserve Bank, a privately owned foreign corporation. The nation lives and operates off of Commercial Law via U.S. Code, and just like the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the U.S. Code is martial in its effects. Commercial Law attempts to regulate everything, just as a military commander uses micro-management to control and command his troops, so to does Commercial Law micro-manage the populace.
I also discuss how misconceptions and deceptions from the Media (both mainstream and alternative) have mischaracterized the events that have taken place in Ferguson MO. The police have been cast in a light of militarized "thugs" thanks to the deciet of the Media. Of course the reasons why police have the equipment they have today is due to the militarization of our society where joe schmo public can purchase a fully automatic assault rifle, given enough money, time, and licenses. We live in an era of home made bombs and mass shootings. Although crime in the U.S. is less than other countries, it is still greater than in others. The police must deal with the reality of a militarized society.
Thanks for listening! -Adam.
Join your host, Angel as we come together as a country to discuss current events & politics.
Listen as we discuss what's happening in the world from our unique, informed and opposing perspectives; call in and let's see who gets The Final Word on BlogTalkRadio.com on Sunday night at 5pm (PST) 8pm (EST).
A young black man was killed on August 9th. He was shot multiple times by police while walking to his grandmother’s house. He was left to die in the street, his body surrounded for hours by armed sentries while his family and community watched horrified from the sidelines. Michael Brown was unarmed. August 11th would have been his first day of college. The gun held by a 22-year-old man who was shot dead last week at a southwest Ohio Walmart was just a realistic-looking toy. Police in the Dayton suburb of Beavercreek fatally shot John Crawford for allegedly waving what appeared to be a rifle at customers in the store. Reports are that the "weapon" may only have been some type of BB or pellet gun that Crawford got and opened in the Walmart.
Black life matters. Yet the police and their media support team have already begun to execute their standard playbook in the aftermath of yet another slain black youth. Tonight we begin this difficult but necessary dialogue by examining each case, both the political and peoples' responses, what contributes to this horrifying trend and what do we do from here? Join us LIVE and have your voice heard.

The difference is the Islamist terrorist in the picture is now dead. She sacraficed her life to murder innocent people. She's an extremist.
