“Cogito, ergo armatum sum: I think, therefore I am armed” (The Modern GunSlinger)
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” (Thomas Jefferson)
“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, American Statesman, 1788)
Anyone reading this blog will agree that our world is rapidly changing. As I write this we have a White House administration which is doing all it can to erode our unalienable rights, impose Marxism on the States and encourage the growth of Islam worldwide. Obama is the Monarch of which the founding fathers warned might seat himself in the Presidency and he is doing all he can to shred the Declaration and Constitution. Obama’s administration has done more to destroy our unalienable rights to keep and bear arms than any previous administration.
Here at home crime is increasing. The Obama administration has very effectively undermined our national economy. There are more people living in poverty and on food stamps that at any time in our nation’s history. He has effectively created a near permanent underclass which is virtually totally dependence on the Federal government’s handouts.
He has inspired through the White House and the Department of Justice class warfare. Black on white crime is at an all time high and increasing. Various news outlets daily report about the war on the “white man.” In many cases the uptick in crime is just a response to the desperation people feel who can’t find work. The poor are often driven by their dire circumstances to take drastic and uncharacteristic measures to survive.
Even the American policing forces are becoming problematic. The Supreme has decided in its useless wisdom that a police officer does not have a Constitution duty to protect the citizens of the city, county or municipal by whom he is paid. So much for the phrase “To Serve and Protect.” Most police officers are good, moral citizens who became an officer because they have an innate desire to help. But this attitude is waning. How much longer will it be before a police officer refuses to put himself in harm’s way when called upon by the citizenry. There are many police officers and organizations which today question the validity of the proper interpretation and role of the 2nd amendment if not the Constitution itself. Besides when a police officer stops a crime from being committed he is because he merely happened to be in the right place at the right time. Policing forces are responders and the true first line of defense against crime is the armed patriot.
To add, there is the ever increasing threat of Islam and hostile nations such as Iran and North Korea. Americans are constantly told that Islam is peaceful and today as I write this there were two news articles in which Muslims were murdering Christians. Our President has betrayed the Constitution and his oath aligning himself with the Muslim Brotherhood, many of whom are presently occupying positions in our political structure.
North Korea and Iran are “rogue” nations which exist to spread their political systems and to destroy America. It is clear Iran is much, much closer to a nuclear arsenal than most of our politicians will publicly admit. The greatest fear of most is not so much a nuclear strike on land but a air blast creating an EMP which effectively would save the land and structures while creating an environment in which over 280,000,000 Americans are expected to die. All Iran has to do is walk in and take over. This is simply a very quick overview of our present situation and it is dire.
This website is devoted primarily to providing educational resources to equip the everyday patriot to aggressively respond to an insurgent who has violated the sanctity of his home putting the family’s lives in danger. Frankly, I do not like the word “defensive” although I will use it. I realize that by definition when an insurgent is confronted within our home we are defending. But very often the term “defending” is defined as picking up the phone, calling 911, herding the family into a safe room hopefully with a weapon trained on the door and anxiously waiting for the police to show. I am sure there are times when this is the best course of action. Historically, through, it is only recently that homeowners have put their lives and the lives of their families in the hand of an armed civilian responder, one who by law, today, is not required to put themselves into danger on behalf of the citizen.
Additionally, the success of the whole scenario is based on the belief that the police, if they do respond, will respond in time. I don’t like putting my life or my family’s life in the hand of another if at all possible.
Learning to properly respond to an insurgent in one’s home is not a panacea to every hostile scenario nevertheless, if done properly the tools and training involved will cover the vast majority. The seminars and articles I write will cover the following areas of combatives: Hand-2-Hand, Home defense, Point-shooting and Tactical Shotgun strategies. I have chosen the specific methods for each because I believe they are the proper methods for home defense. My choices do not mean they are the only methods that might be useful nor does it mean the choices are accepted as proper by others. The field of self-defense is very splintered among the various experts and schools. Thankfully, most of what is taught in each schools can be very useful. That being said the methods I have chosen to teach are battle-tested either in combat, when appropriate or actual situations where a person had to defend their home and loved ones. I do pray that what I have to offer will help make your life and home more secure.
