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...

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?

Let's Write welcomes NYTIMES best selling author of the Rizzoli and Isles series Tess Gerristen. Her new title: Die Again is the next in this series.
When Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles are summoned to a crime scene, they find a killing worthy of the most ferocious beast—right down to the claw marks on the corpse. But only the most sinister human hands could have left renowned big-game hunter and taxidermist Leon Gott gruesomely displayed like the once-proud animals whose heads adorn his walls. Did Gott unwittingly awaken a predator more dangerous than any he’s ever hunted?
Maura fears that this isn’t the killer’s first slaughter, and that it won’t be the last. After linking the crime to a series of unsolved homicides in wilderness areas across the country, she wonders if the answers might actually be found in a remote corner of Africa
Six years earlier, a group of tourists on safari fell prey to a killer in their midst. Marooned deep in the bush of Botswana, with no means of communication and nothing but a rifle-toting guide for protection, the terrified tourists desperately hoped for rescue before their worst instincts—or the wild animals prowling in the shadows—could tear them apart. But the deadliest predator was already among them, and within a week, he walked away with the blood of all but one of them on his hands.
Now this killer has chosen Boston as his new hunting ground, and Rizzoli and Isles must find a way to lure him out of the shadows and into a cage. Even if it means dangling the bait no hunter can resist: the one victim who got away. We will talk about how she created this novel, the storyline, keeping reader interest and what's next for her two main characters. Join me at four eastern for this exciting show and ask your questions in the chat room. I am your host Fran Lewis

THIS ORDER, THE BLACK ORDER, IS THE PENDULUM THAT SWINGS IN OUR FAVOR...
IN THE CONCEPT OF THE 'ORDER' OR, AS HE INSISTED, THE 'CLAN ORDER' [SIPPENORDEN] BASED ON RACIAL SELECTION HIMMLER BELIEVED HE HAD FOUND THE APPROPRIATE FORMULA TO CAPTURE THE NATURE OF THE SS. IN THE SS-LEITHEFTE [SS GUIDANCE BOOKLETS] OF 1943 THERE IS AN ATTEMPT TO REFINE THE NOTION OF THE SS AS AN ORDER. THERE WE READ: 'WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A PARTICULAR WORLD VIEW AN ORDER IS THAT CLOSE-KNIT COMMUNITY WHOSE MEMBERS SURRENDER COMPLETE POWER OVER THEIR LIVES TO THAT WORLD-VIEW AND ALL COMMIT THEMSELVES WILLINGLY TO FOLLOWING ITS PRECEPTS.' THE SIMILARITY TO CHRISTIAN ORDERS IS NO COINCIDENCE, THE ARTICLE SAYS, AND IT IS IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT, IN SPITE OF THE 'ALIEN AND WRONG-HEADED PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE' THAT CHRISTIAN ORDERS CULTIVATE, THEY BROUGHT TOGETHER 'PEOPLE' WHO WISHED TO DEDICATE THEIR LIVES TO AN IDEALISTIC AND ELEVATED GOAL'.
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 seems like no exaggeration to suggest that at this moment, a half-century after the greatest victories of the civil rights movement, America is drifting backwards towards apartheid. It’s not a word I use lightly, nor one we are accustomed to using when describing our current condition. Indeed, its not even a word that most are willing to utter when referencing our past. It’s a word we like to reserve for others, for the formerly white-dominated South Africa, but not for ourselves, and certainly not now, what with a black president and all.
But beyond the presence of brown faces in high places, can anyone really claim without gagging on the sheer dimensions of the lie, that we are even within intercontinental-ballistic-missile-striking-distance of that state of post-raciality so many naive white folks assured us had arrived upon the election of Barack Obama? People like Rudy Giuliani and William Bennett and John Bolton and Ann Coulter, all of whom proclaimed racism essentially over as soon as the election had been called?
Is it really a stretch to call it apartheid, even as one after another after another after another black male (roughly one every 28 hours) — and more than a few black women and girls — are gunned down by police or vigilantes in city after city and town after town, unarmed, or armed only with an air rifle in a Wal-Mart? And this, even as white men can point their guns at federal officials or parade around the streets, or in Target or churches or Chipotle, or bars (because guns around booze is always a great idea) or anywhere they damned well please with weapons — real ones, with bullets — and be left to see another day? Or in some cases even lauded as heroes and the new “freedom riders,” standing up for their constitutional rights?
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.
