Seg 1: Catch up and Sticks Appleseed, Rob shooting steel, the importance of trigger reset and knowing when to duck.
From NY mugging- An SUV beats three aces. Call the cops immediately.  The SUV stopped because the tires had already been slashed, so it appears the tires were slashed before the SUV ran over the motorcycle rider.  The average attack is 2.3 persons against one.  Tell me again how 7 shots is enough?  The best backup gun is a trained partner.
Up to 5 undercover NY PD officers were riding with the biker gang and they witnessed the beating.
Paul – discussion on protective driving and defensive driving. It’s much the same as the use of defensive firearms.  Trained at truck driving school when tractor trailers were being hijacked.  Defensive driving on a dirt track.
Main points on protective driving vs safe driving
1) In defensive driving your main goal is to prevent collisions and keep you and the occupants of your vehicle safe, in protective driving you have been threatened and are using the vehicle as a tool to regain the safety of you and the occupants of the vehicle – BIG Difference.
2) The vehicle is a FAR more effective tool for defense than almost anything else INCLUDING A FIREARM. If you doubt me look at the physics of the collision, you get FAR more impact from a 2500 pound car at 20 mph than a 1 ounce projectile at thousands of feet per second.
3) Momentum is your friend. If you are being physically threatened don’t stop for anything. I don’t care if your tires are GONE, you can still stay safe running on the rims, and a bad guy will play hell trying to get through a locked door at even 10 MPH.
4) You aren’t Dirty Harry, you cannot shoot and drive at the same time, leave the gun in the holster until the car cannot move anymore.
You can run Autocross with SCCA.  Costs you an 80 dollar helmet.

Terrorist bombing in Nairobi, Kenya- Kenya is learning the lessons from this terrorist murder in Nairobi, lessons the rest of the world learned from the massacre seven years ago in Beslan Russia. Disarmed civilians are an easy and irresistible target for terrorists.  These mass murders make the government look impotent.  This is the first, not the last attack because disarmed Kenya is full of such targets.  There is not an alternatives to an armed citizenry.  The seeming alternative is a strict police state, but a police state is precisely what failed so miserably at Beslan where 380 people were killed.
Look for David Grossman as an expert on armed citizens. http://www.killology.com/
Look at the IDPA shooters responding to the Nairobi Mall murders.  I’ve seen them described as the police and as members of a local gun club.  Perhaps both.

Government shutdown follies.
The Obama administration has to make the 13 percent budget cut pretty painful.  If the budget cut doesn’t hurt, then the voters might decide to keep the government smaller.  Include a list of ridiculous closures by the administration, like no fishing in the florida keys since the fish and game officials can’t prove you’re taking a legal catch.
Proposed 28th amendment to the US constitution-
All  sitting members of Congress, both the House and the Senate, are ineligible for re-election for life if the federal government spends or assumes liabilities that exceed the tax revenues received during the previous fiscal year.  Re-election to occur the next November.
