Personal news from each participant (when you are done with your segment please ask the next person what has been up with them)


Rob- I joined Bill Frady on his Lock and Load Radio program. I’m now a regular guest on the first hour of Tuesday evening. Ben Branam joined me for another episode of Self-Defense Gun Stories.


John – I’ve been transcribing my notes from MAG-20. I need to get out to the range but I’ve been slack on that lately. I’ve been working on my annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday post. Given the state of the gun market, I think there will be some real bargains out there.


Tracy – I gave a couple of handgun lessons last week, and yesterday I replaced the mag catches in two of my 1911s with right-sided mag catches, on the recommendation of Karl Rehn, because of my freakishly short thumbs. Stay tuned for updates on how my magazine changes are coming along. Yesterday was the first time I have ever attempted any type of gunsmithing on my firearms, and the first time I have ever used LocTite, so I am rather pleased with myself.



Promo about PSP patches.


Promo about upcoming training classes here.


Tracy – I’m teaching a MAG-20 range class on Jan. 27-28, 2018 at www.krtraining.com at KR Training.

2- News



It must be nice to write for the mainstream media. It is so much easier to tell a good story when you don’t let the facts get in the way.  The boston globe reported that there is an epidemic of firearms violence in the US. They said there is a growing movement for mass confiscation.  The staff at the polite society podcast wants to know when we get to report without facts.


There is not an epidemic of violence across the US. There isn’t even an epidemic of mass murder with firearms.  Our failed socialist cities are violent. Even in those cities, violence is localized to drug turf wars. A number of law enforcement agencies report that we don’t have a firearms violence epidemic.  We don’t even have a drug epidemic. They say we have a drug prohibition epidemic.


Compared to other countries, the US firearms homicide rate is average. What isn’t average is localized violence. More than half of our murders occur in 2 percent of our counties. When we exclude a few socialists cities here in the US, then we’re one of the safest countries on earth.


When you look at mass public murder by firearm, the US rate isn’t even in the top 10 nations. The US and Austria are 11 and 12. The reason this is so significant is that these mass murder rates exclude government genocide. Government is far more lethal than an armed populous. Here in the US, we have the best of both worlds. We have a low rate of murder and mass murder, diversity of opinion, contentious political freedom, freedom from democide, and an armed populous.


Also, there is growing support for going armed, and declining support for an assault weapons ban. That isn’t our opinion, but the results of a pew research poll. You didn’t hear that from the Boston Globe or the New York Times.

Now if only we could clean up Chicago and Saint Louis.


Gary Gun Quotes

I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery. It prevents the degeneracy of government, and nourishes a general attention to public affairs. I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical world. Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, January 30, 1787


Hang on everybody, we’ll be back with our guest (Tiffany Johnson, Kenn Blanchard, and Aquil Qadir..

Rob- 5- DGUs (at beginning) These discussions are NOT legal advice. Some of us are trainers, but this is not formal training and YOU NEED formal training.

Gary- Careful What You Post

Nick Davis had a successful night at the casino.  And like so many, he posted on social media about his winnings.

Cashmiere Hill saw Mr. Davis post and thought it would be a way to gain some extra cash in his own pocket.

Davis was laying down when he heard glass breaking in his kitchen.  He went to investigate and found a black male trying to get into his house.  The man yelled at him to “give me your [expletive] money,” and then fired a shot at Davis.  That shot struck him in the wrist.  Nick fired back in self-defense, he thinks 8 rounds, and struck the intruder who fell back into the stairwell.  Mr. Davis then called 911 and yelled to neighbors for help.  Hill died at the scene.

Tory Summers has told police that he called Davis to make sure he was home then drove Hill to a spot about 2 blocks from the residence.  Hill had told him that he was going to rob Davis and he wanted Summers to pick him up.  When he heard shots coming from the direction of the residence, he left.

He is charged armed robbery, armed burglary, and felony murder.


John – Mr. Summers needed to pick better friends


Tracy- Heros run toward trouble

5:30 AM can be a good time to go for a run in Austin Texas but the sun doesn’t begin to rise for another hour and a half in September.

A young woman was out for a run last month then she was grabbed from behind by a sexual predator and then fell to the ground with her on her back and the suspect on top of her.  He put his hand over her mouth and kept saying “shh, it’s me baby, it’s me.”  She continued to struggle and tried to use a whistle she carried.

Another jogger who leaves the house prepared heard the victim scream and ran toward her to help.  He was armed with a firearm, flashlight and cell phone.  He pointed his flashlight in the direction of the screams and saw the victim on her back and her attacker on his left side on top of her.

He aimed his gun at the predator and demanded he get off the victim.  The man stood up and was naked from the waist down.  The woman took advantage of her attacker getting up to get up as well and walk toward the jogger.  She did not realize he was armed because she was blinded by his flashlight.  As she walked across the line of fire, the attacker fled with the woman’s shoes and shorts.

She and the hero jogger were able to pick the man from a photo lineup and he has been arrested.


Rob- The attacker was a homeless person with a history of exposing himself. Why did the victim choose to go unarmed?


Rob City on Lockdown

Last week, the town of Ortonville, Michigan, north of Pontiac, was put on lockdown after Michael Quigley went on the run.

Quigley was distraught that his wife had filed for divorce and had tracked them down at her male friend’s apartment in the small town on Tuesday evening.  He forced his way in and shot both of them.  They were rushed to the hospital with gunshot wounds to the head.  The male friend’s daughter was home at the time but unhurt.

Wednesday morning the local schools were closed or were on lockdown.  The manhunt was on.

Late Wednesday evening he was found hiding in a van in a Brandon Township driveway.  The homeowner opened the back door of the vehicle and found the wanted man hiding under a blanket.  The homeowner had his 9MM pointed at Quigley and the man did everything that he was told to do.  He ordered him down to the ground then called 911 and within two minutes, the SWAT team came out of the woods from every direction.

Quigley’s estranged wife and her friend were in intensive care but in stable condition and were able to talk to police.  Quigley was being held on $8 million bond and was facing numerous charges including attempted murder.

Listener e-mail discussion


Gary: Rob, do you have any new posts from your SlowFacts blog you want to mention?





Millions of parishioners, pastors and church elders woke up to a new world after the murders at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. They felt the responsibility to keep their families and their congregations safe. We bring every problem with us to church.  Fortunately, we also bring solutions. We are god’s hands, so it is up to us to stop violence when it comes to church. We are already doing so, and have been for years. You probably won’t notice it, but the change is very real and already underway.


My articles are up at Clash Daily, at Ammoland and at my blog, slow facts dot wordpress dot com.  John, tell us what’s new at your blog no lawyers only guns and money.


I have been looking at the murders in Rancho Tehama Reserve, California and in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Both sets of murders were done by people who were prohibited persons and both might have been prevented if government had done its job correctly. In the California case, the police had reports from neighbors of the guy shooting in his yard even though he had an order prohibiting him from possessing a firearm. They did nothing about it. In the Sutherland Springs case, we know the Air Force failed to submit the killer’s name to the FBI for inclusion in the NICS database. However, it is actually worse than that. The court martial only gave the guy one year imprisonment and not the eight allowed under the UCMJ. In a NC court, he would have been looking at over 10 years. Either way the killer would still be behind bars. Frankly, I think the USAF just want to get rid of the guy and thus foisted him upon the civilian population. As Dave Hardy titled his new book, “I’m from the government and I’m here to kill you.”
