SORT BY Relevancy
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...

Last week, the Guardian published an explosive report describing what some are calling a 'black site' used by Chicago police right here in the United States. Is this an exaggeration or are people truly 'disappeared' using gestapo-like tactics?
Also covered in this report:

Florida City spies on churches, demands licenses:
Florida city’s code-enforcement division, which was subject in 2013 to a scathing audit for falsifying inspections, employing unqualified inspectors and failing to clean up nuisance properties, has now decided to go after churches.
The City of Lake Worth, in Palm Beach County, has taken the position all churches are required to obtain a “business license” to conduct worship services. It is using city employees to covertly attend services and acquire evidence, including video, “for future court presentation
Oregon Democrat confirms amnesty danger to gun rights:
Schraeder’s observation highlights a contention made by Gun Owners of America that amnesty is a threat to the right to keep and bear arms. That position has so far been avoided by other national gun rights groups which refuse to acknowledge the issue, or to score political ratings and endorsements accordingly."
MMR vaccines actually spread measles and cause permanent immune damage, doctor warns
Dr. Robert Rowen was fortunate enough to have grown up before the advent of MMR, emphasizing that he was "blessed" to have had natural measles, as well as chickenpox, rubella, mumps and various other conditions as a child. He lived, of course, and now no longer has to worry about ever contracting any of these diseases again, thanks to the lifelong immunity he developed.
How Many Times Are We Going to Watch Unarmed Civilians Gunned Down by Islamic Terrorists?
Larry Pratt has been Executive Director of Gun Owners of America for over 30 years. GOA is a national membership organization of 300,000 Americans dedicated to promoting their Second Amendment freedom to keep and bear arms. GOA lobbies for the pro-gun position in Washington, D.C. and is involved in firearm issues in the states. GOA's work includes providing legal assistance to those involved in lawsuits with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, the federal firearms law enforcement agency. Pratt has held elective office in the state legislature of Virginia, serving in the House of Delegates.
There was Charlie Hebdo, the January 7th attack by Islamic fundamentalists on the French newspaper in Paris. Then the attacks in Copenhagen, one person was killed, and two others injured, in a shooting near a Copenhagen synagogue, just hours after a gunman with an automatic rifle opened fire on a cafe hosting a free speech event organized by a controversial Swedish artist who has faced threats for his caricatures of Muhammad. Now we’re being warned of a possible Islamic terrorist attack on the Mall of America; but, no guns allowed there.

Listen to The Gist of Freedom tonight as we talk with Jennifer Nelson a descendant of the historical black town, Boley OK.
One of the first nationally chartered black-owned banks, Farmers and Merchants Bank in Boley, Oklahoma, an all-black town successfully fended off “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s Bank Robber's Gang!
ON NOVEMBER 23, 1932, three members of Charles A. “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s gang made the worst mistake of their lives. They tried to rob the state’s first nationally chartered black-owned bank Farmers and Merchants Bank in Boley, Ok, an all-black town of proud-walking pioneers.
Up to that point, the Floyd gang had been robbing an average of a bank a week, usually without any resistance.
Gangster Floyd had warned his gang members against robbing the Boley bank because, the people of Boley all had guns, knew how to shoot them and weren't afraid to use them. Photos: Boley Council Members, Boley Bank, SEMINOLE NEGRO INDIAN SCOUTS _
They didn't heed Floyd's warning and Birdwell and Patterson, armed burst into the bank early that morning. announced they were robbing the bank and warned "don't pull no alarm."
The bank's Bookkeeper McCormick, saw the robbers enter. He slipped into the bank's vault, retrieved the rifle and aimed it at Birdwell who was scooping up cash.
At the same time, the Bank's president D.J. Turner, was on duty. He loved Boley and was determined to defend it.
When the alarm began wailing Birdwell hollered, "Did you pull that alarm?" "Sure I did," Turner answered.
Gangster Birdwell shot and Turner fell mortally wounded. McCormick, in turn, shot the second gang member, Birdwell to death.

We had a great "Ghosts of Goliad" Fundamentals of Rifle course this last weekend with the Central Texas Militia. They did a great job and we hope to work with them again in the future. They are doing their best to insure they have thew rifle skills to defend their selves and their loved ones, and the State of Texas and The Constitution of The United States. They are continuing to improve their education and skill sets.
We had a 10 minute class on beer making, as well as short discussions of alternate power and about water storage and purification. These folks are trying to learn how to become more self reliant and better prepared to handle situations which might arise during man made or natural cessation of services events.
The folks in the III%ers/Grid Down Communication Course the weekend before were doing the same. Learning to communicte when the normal systems go down
What are you doing to insure you have the ability to feed, defend and care for your family, loved ones and neighbors in the coming year?

Hoping you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Tonight we're going to piggyback on a webinar being offered and hosted by Samuel Culper III of Guerillamerica. Culper is former intelligence, a combat veteran, a prepper and proud resident of the American Redoubt.
He'll talk about Intelligence Preparation of the Community or "IPC." There are a LOT of folks talking about preparedness, but their content on security extends the length of a rifle barrel. You can have years’ worth of stored food and supplies, but if you can’t protect it, you may not have it for long.
Intelligence analyst Culper will tell us how to use an Army planning process to analyze our community security, because when the SHTF (if such an event occurs overnight), most in the Patriot and Prepper communities aren’t going to know exactly what to expect.
Sure, you might see gangs, mobs, rioters, looters, unorganized criminality, the Golden Horde, and maybe Big Brother. But these are just examples of threats. And this is usually the extent of intelligence done by Patriots and Preppers.
How many of these threats are there? How forceful are they?
Where will they come from?
What weapons and equipment will they have?
What are their capabilities?
What are their goals?
What’s their strategy?
How can we develop early warning for these events?
Tonight, we find out. Tune in for this special two-hour edition of The ANDREA SHEA KING Show.
Tubman's organizing ability was key to her success -- she had to work with supporters on the clandestine Underground Railroad, as well as get messages to the slaves, since she met them away from their plantations to avoid detection. They usually left on a Saturday evening, as the Sabbath might delay anyone noticing their absence for another day, and if anyone did note their flight, the Sabbath would certainly delay anyone from organizing an effective pursuit or publishing a reward.
Tubman was only about five feet tall, but she was smart and she was strong -- and she carried a long rifle. She used the rifle not only to intimidate pro-slavery people they might meet, but also to keep any of the slaves from backing out. She threatened any who seemed like they were about to leave, telling them that "dead Negroes tell no tales." A slave who returned from one of these trips could betray too many secrets: who had helped, what paths the flight had taken, how messages were passed..
Quakers Released Slaves
Not only did many Quakers release their slaves, but they saw to it that they could take care of themselves, teaching them to read and write and, in many cases, seeing that they were escorted to states or territories where they could live in freedom.
Quaker John Woolman was involved with the abolitionist movement from an early date. He traveled the countryside, preaching against slavery. Woolman, born in 1720, became convinced that slavery was wrong when, at the age 20, he was asked by his employer to write a bill of sale for a slave girl. He did write it, but told his boss that he “believed slave-keeping to be a practice inconsistent with the Christian religion.” Shortly after this incident, Woodman left his job to travel and was instrumental in spreading the abolitionist message.
A police officer can use force to overcome resistance and to defend him or herself. The evolution of the use of force in the United States, and in particular deadly force, has been influenced by at least three factors. The first factor is the law. Most famously, the United States Supreme Court in Tennessee V Garner introduced the dual concepts of Necessary and Reasonable. The second factor has been technological change. In the arena of deadly force, police officers have access to more powerful weapons and weapons with high-capacity magazines. Additionally, a number of less-than-lethal options have been introduced in the last three decades. Lastly, changes in the law and the introduction of new weapons systems have led to a revolution in police training. In many instances and in addition to basic marksmanship training given at a firing range, police officers in the 21st Century are also trained via real-life “shoot-don’t-shoot” exercises and simulators. All of these factors have led to greater public and administrative expectations of police officers when they are faced with use of force situations.
Lieutenant Raymond E. Foster, LAPD (ret.) a international expert in police policy and practices will explore the various factors in the evolution of law enforcement’s use of deadly force.

Times of civil unrest are truly tests of survival of the fittest. Most of us don't like to acknowledge this, because fitness hasn't been a top priority in a while. Perhaps we're older and have some aches and pains. Or, perhaps we are already juggling kids, spouse, a job, aging parents, and all of our other prepping activities- when is there even time to think about fitness, let alone work out?
In this episode, we're going to be talking with my friend, “Lute”. Once a marine, always a marine, Lute has also been a private civilian contractor, provided close security, and taught classes in self-defense, tactical movement, and long-distance marksmanship. Lute is also a power lifter with a mission to help others get more fit, and incorporate fitness into their emergency preps.
