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...
Do you know these terms? Do you understand their meanings, and know how to apply them?
Whether you're an absolute beginner, or an experienced shooter, you won't want to miss this episode of Griztalk Radio, as Griz and Joe cover everything from the fundamentals of Firearms Safety, through the various shooting positions, up to and including the tools and techniques necessary for that long-reach shot!
Tune in on Saturda evening, August 18th, from 7-10, for an avalanche of vital information that will help make you a better shooter!
Sparks31 has been on the shsow previously to speak about the skills and techniques needed to initiate and maintain communications with the outside world, using your own equipment, FRS, CB and Ham Radios, during a "grid down" situation. He returns tonight to continue that discussion and to talk about what he will be teaching at the upcoming BattleRoadUSA Grid Down Communications course December 6th/7th, 2014 at our facilities in Central Texas.
Even if you are not planning on attending the course, this is information you will want to have in your work bag in the event all other means of communications are unavailable to you. In a natural or man made disaster, or any type of "grid down" situation, having the ability to determine what is going on the the rest of the world, outside your field of view, is an extremely important ability.
We will also discuss ways to use your communications systems as the basis for your intelligence program. Being able to listen to service providers, EMS, Sheriff's Dept, Police, etc., in your area can help you determine what is happening in your area of operations. Knowing that there is something going down in your area, or close to you can be very important in your home defense or community defense plan.
Be sure and call in with your questions at 347-308-8790 and add your voice to the discussion.
Hope to see you there!
It is time for another assault on the Constitution. With Harry Reid pushing SJR19 back in May he has begun another effort to limit Political Freedom of Speech. Before the American War for Independence, colonists in America faced a very dangerous situation when speaking their minds about politictians. You could be arrested, beaten, imprisoned and even executed for saying even true things about government officials.
The First Amendment to The Constitution was meant to specifically protect political free speech. Flag Burning, suspending crosses in urine and shouting "Death To America!!!" are all simply happy bi-products of the 1st Amendment.
The McCain/Feingold Act, also known as the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, was the latest atempt at limiting The First Amendment. It never made it and instead, the companion legislation, H.R. 2356—introduced by Rep. Chris Shays (R-CT), is the version that became law. Shays–Meehan was originally introduced as H.R. 380.
Now Senate Joint Resolution 19 will once again attempt to limit what type of political speech is allowed.
Join us tonight to discuss why this is bad and how this can be stopped.
We will also discuss the upcoming fundamentals of rifle marksmanship courses,
"The Ghosts of Goliad Project".
Two day rifle marksmanship courses designed to give you a rock solid understanding of the fundamentals of rifle marksmanshiip and at the same time, give you an understanding of what happend in Texas in 1835 to produce the War for Texas Independence and a new Republic. The course also runs hourly introductions to self reliance and prepping topics.

Host Dave Bourne will discuss another murder by the police in Las Vegas this time for a man walking and open carrying a rifle. NV Cop Block's Kelly Patterson and his weekly segment, why we should end the government police and more!!
The show promotes and discusses the ideas of true freedom and liberty for all people without the partisan politics. Exposing the government for what it is, a mafia that rules only by the threat of force without concent. The show supports peaceful consentual voluntary relationships.Where the people are not robbed, oppressed, controlled and abused under the threat of force and in many cases actual force is used to force compliance.
Governments and it's rulers have no place in the world. I don't want someone else to represent me and make decisions about how I should live my life, when I know what's best for me and can represent myself. I am not a republican, I am not a democrat. I'm not a liberal, I'm not a conservative. I will not allow you to define me, or force me to join one of your gangs. I am an individual and I believe in freedom and liberty for all people, regardless of race, gender, or sexual orientation as all human beings have a right to freedom and liberty. I will stand up to government oppression and do what I can to educate the public on the illusion and or lack of true freedom in America.

The year was 1957. Monroe, North Carolina, was a rigidly segregated town where all levels of white society and government were dedicated to preserving the racial status quo. Blacks who dared to speak out were subject to brutal, sadistic violence.
It was common practice for convoys of Ku Klux Klan members to drive through black neighborhoods shooting in all directions. A black physician who owned a nice brick house on a main road was a frequent target of racist anger. In the summer of 1957, a Klan motorcade sent to attack the house was met by a disciplined volley of rifle fire from a group of black veterans and NRA members led by civil rights activist Robert F. Williams
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice echoed similar sentiments in 2005 when she explained her strong support of the Second Amendment to Larry King. “The way I come out of my own personal experience, in which in Birmingham, Ala., my father and his friends defended our community in 1962 and 1963 against White Knight Riders by going to the head of the community, the head of the cul-de-sac, and sitting there, armed. And so I’m very concerned about any abridgement of the Second Amendment.”
