Black and American History: Podcast 308

american-flag

February 15, 2013 | Posted in Urban Shooter Podcast | By

The Urban Shooter Podcast

Just under an hour show features interviews with Crusader Weaponry, Barbara Baird, Nikki Turpeaux, news, candid conversations, African American and personal history related to gun control, music from KC and the Sunshine Band, Bobby Caldwell, shout outs to frends and family, Freedomsnetwork.org, americangunowner.org, kickstarter project and Bishop EW Jackson’s campaign for Lt. Gov of Virginia.

This week on the 308th episode of The Urban Shooter Podcast, I don’t talk about .308 caliber anything.   I already did that in an earlier episode.  What I wax philosophically about is American history and my link as a person of color to gun control.  I also give some silly points of references to things that have happened in my life for levity.

I got the chance to interview two guys from Crusader Weaponry at the 2013 SHOT show and Ron Larimer, blogger and podcaster of balloongoesup.com

The news segment mentions the former LAPD officer that was killed in California after a long manhunt and the recent arrest of a para-olympian from South Africa that I thought was noteworthy.  He recently killed his girlfriend.  I also gave some kudos to Mark Walters of Armed American Radio for his success in growing a pro-gun radio show on terrestrial traditional radio in this day in age.

‘Blade Runner’ Olympian Oscar Pistorius charged with murdering girlfriend

 

Barbara Baird of Womensoutdoornews.com interviews Nikki Turpeaux of archangeltactical.com on the show.

I give an explanation about freedoms network and what I have learned about providing a social media site for fans and friends of the show.

I play a professionally made commercial I made for topgunreview.com in appreciation for their help on a future project of mine called Americangunowner.org.

I have a kickstarter program trying to raise money (2K) for equipment to expand the success of my podcast into a web series.

I introduced a new segment with a story from Aesop’s fables that I hope to add every week (till I run out) with a moral and thought to ponder.  I believe that gun owners, are some of the best people in the world and need encouragement, enrichment and entertainment in a time when they are constantly defending their right to live free, love and protect their families.  My show seeks to fill in a more holistic approach to our lives than just guns.  We are more than that.

In honor of those I love, Bones Hooks renders the opening of a Bobby Caldwell song and concludes with a KC and the Sunshine Band classic interrupted.

PLUS:

.22 Caliber Conversion Kit for the Glock Pistol from Advantage Arms, Inc.

Advantage Arms conversion kit

December 24, 2012 | Posted in Firearms | By

I didn’t intend to buy anything when I checked into Nova Armament Gun Shop, at 795 Center Street, Herndon, VA.  I was just saying high and saw the Advantage Arms, Inc. .22 Conversion kit in the showcase.  It caught my eye, like when you see a Cosmopolitan magazine in the grocery store.  I asked to see it and that was all it took.  I bought the thing in hope that it fit my Gen 3 Lone Wolf Distributor Timber Wolf frame.  I built a custom Glock 35 from Lone Wolf but was not real happy with it.  Lone Wolf Distributor is the company that makes custom slides, lowers, compensators and flash hiders that can change the look of your Glock pistol dramatically.  I wanted a 9mm but they didn’t have it right away so I accepted the .40 cal S&W.  I really like the added features on the Timber wolf frame.  It has a rounded trigger guard, a beavertail, a high grip angle and a couple of other features that makes it feel good.  I ordered a 9mm drop in barrel when one was available but needed a different extractor for it to run efficiently.  The drop in barrel wasn’t enough.  I had constant feeding issues while shooting.  I took the barrel back out and put the .40 cal. barrel back in.  I put the gun back in the safe.  I was disappointed.  A few months later I pulled it back out and bought an aluminum magazine well for it that matched the slide.  It looked better but shooting .40-caliber ammunition is expensive.  The extra recoil is not quite the punch of a .45 but snappy to where it’s not pleasurable.  Back in the safe it went.  I pulled it back out when I thought about adding a laser or white light attachment to the rails on the LWD Glock.  The Viridian Green Laser/ White light combo is slick.  It made it my bedside gun for a minute.  The Viridian light fit without a hitch, and was easy to adjust.  I was not a gadget guy until I got this laser and light combo.  I like it.  The green is cool and can be seen in daylight.

 

Well, now I pulled off the slide, and put on this .22 caliber replacement slide and it went on just like the instruction book said.  At first, it didn’t lock on, but that was also because I didn’t read the instructions.  After I did, I realized you have to put the muzzle on a flat surface and work the slide lock till it gets into the right position.  As soon as it “locked” into place, the smile on my face almost cut my head in two pieces.

 

Now I have a really cool gun to plink and practice my marksmanship with that won’t cost $50 for a box of ammo.  If you are choosing between a 40, 45 or 9, go with the 9mm.   More on that later.

Church shootings

cross

August 10, 2012 | Posted in Faith | By

 There have been more instances of violence against worshippers than we pay attention to.

 

I believe that our faith is not in question when we seek to protect ourselves.  We wear more clothing when the environment changes.  We seek cover from rain and we do all the sensible things except when it comes to defense against human predators.

Being confident in our faith doesn’t mean we stop participation in our own preservation and social interaction.  Even lambs have teeth.  An Amoeba has a defense system.  Are we not less than that?

We trust God for provision, but we stop at the practical. “God will provide”.  He does – but I believe He expects a little participation.  He feeds the birds but He doesn’t throw the food in their nest.

As a shepherd (undershepherd, technically) I believe I am responsible for the safety of the sheep in my care.  Synonyms of shepherd are “protector, guardian, defender, and keeper.”  How did we get away from that responsibility?

I believe that God surely loves the people at my church because He has me there to shepherd them.  I have guarded a US President, world leaders, diplomats, and celebrities.

In the Old Testament book of Nehemiah, while the leader rebuilt the wall and restored hope for his people they put up guards.  That is leadership.

But we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.

 – Nehemiah 4:9 (NIV)

Look at all the instances that have occurred in 2012 involving places of worship.  I got this from Information from Carl Chinn’s site at http://www.carlchinn.com

 

 

Pray for our Nation.

A man walked up to him and shot him multiple times in the head killing him in front of stunned witnesses. The shooter even repeatedly struck him multiple times after he fell in what looks to be a gang-related execution.
3 25 2012 Boiling Springs, SC Jesse Gates acted strange earlier in the Sunday AM service at the Southside Free Will Baptist Church. Strange enough that member Aaron Guyton carried his legal concealed weapon the rest of the day. Gates returned armed with a shotgun and a knife. He kicked open a side door and began to demand the pastor come down from the pulpit. Rev. Henry Guyton (Grandfather of Aaron) did come down, but it was to take the shotgun away as Aaron, Jesse Smith and Leland Powers (who had all intervened immediately) held Gates to the ground.
3 18 2012 Las Vegas, NV As a man was walking across the parking lot about 08:00 Sunday AM to go into services at the St. Joseph, Husband of Mary Church, two men in a car pulled beside him.

3 1 2012 Omaha, NE As middle school children were in the St. Paul Lutheran Church school gym, shots rang out from an unrelated gun attack in the parking lot. One bullet struck the gymnasium door, and a car in the parking lot was hit, but nobody in the church was injured.
2 26 2012 Visalia, CA Death threats against Reverend Carlos Serrano of The Catholic Church of Visalia were credible enough that the priest was relocated to an unpublished location prior to services on Sunday. Law enforcement officials confirmed the priest is under no other investigations, and he is the victim in this city where an LDS church leader was killed on 8/29/10
2 24 2012 Carrollton, TX Well known area businessman, 52-year-old Travis Henderson had been involved in a family disturbance at his home.

2 9 2012 Culpeper, VA Mystery clouds a shooting in the parking lot of the Epiphany Catholic School at 10:00 Thursday morning. 54-year-old Patricia Cook had never had any encounter with police, and was a respected retired local professional. But she was reported as a suspicious person in the church / school parking lot. The responding police officer, Daniel Harmon-Wright, shot and killed her. Wright was indicted on murder charges.
2 6 2012 Cleveland, OH Father Dean Dimon of Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church and Father John Ojaimi from nearby St. George Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church both confronted William Horning who had been working churches in the area by taking money without doing the work charged for. Horning became angry when confronted with his ruse (discovered to be a parole violation of prior convictions). They pinned him down as they were awaiting arrival of law-enforcement, but he hit Father John in the head and escaped. As Horning was fleeing the church, he purposely hit two arriving officers with his car as they identified themselves and tried to stop him. The injuries to the officers and the priest were not life-threatening.
2 3 2012 Princeton, WV 30-year-old Jason Hicks was found shot to death in the parking lot of the Pentecostal Chapel of Praise. The gunshot was not self-inflicted, but no arrests have yet been made. The shooting occured around 7:30 PM on Friday night.

2 1 2012 Springfield, MA The body of 38-year-old Judy Ramirez was found at the base of stairs leading into the basement of the Progressive Community Chapel. The investigation determined homicide due to blunt force trauma. 30-year-old Ronald Ruell Jr. arrested and charged with her murder.
1 22 2012 Nevada, MO A small fire was ignited when an unidentified person threw a Molotov cocktail at the Sylvan Dale church.
1 20 2012 Albany, GA As the worship service began at the Albany Rescue Mission, Major Scott came in threatening other participants with a knife, disrobed and continued lunging at people with a knife. When police arrived, he had to be tazed in order to arrest him.
1 20 2012 Akron, OH 3 men robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot of the North Hills Community Baptist Church. Arrests were made on 16, 17 & 19-year-old robbers who struck at 8:00 PM on Friday night. Police tracked them in the snow to make the arrest
1 18 2012 Goose Creek, SC As the choir of St. James United Methodist Church were rehearsing, a man walked in the unlocked door and started down the aisle towards them with a long gun (investigators are uncertain if it was a shotgun or rifle) yelling at them to get on the floor. He was loud, vulgar and overpowering as people tried to comply but some older folks could not physically meet his demands. He got away with cell phones, billfolds and purses.
1 17 2012 Charleston, WV Following a domestic dispute, 40-year-old Tommy Gene Ransbottom held a gun to his own head then fired it multiple times into the air. As police were responding he drove to the Rock Lake Presbyterian Church.

He was shot and killed as police determined his actions were putting them in danger.
1 17 2012 Salisbury, NC By the time police arrived at the scene of a fight in the parking lot of the Milford Hills United Methodist Church on Tuesday evening, all suspects and victims had fled. 3 spent 9 mm casings were retrieved, but nobody seemed to have been hit.
1 15 2012 Omaha, NE As congregants were worshipping inside the Afresh Anointing Church, they heard gunshots that first sounded as if they were coming from the basement.

He told police he did not know his attacker who confronted him as he was walking by the church.
1 15 2012 South Bend, IN “Random act of violence” seems to be the only explanation for why a couple of unidentified shooters shot at least 6 9mm rounds at a homeless man standing close to the downtown First United Methodist Church. One of the rounds cut through his pants, but none struck his body. The homeless man told police he was waiting outside the church to use their weather amnesty program.
1 15 2012 Flint, MI As people were arriving at the Salem Lutheran Church, a 54-year-old woman was approached by two men with a gun as she got out of her car. They demanded her car from her which she gave them avoiding any further confrontation. Neither they nor the car have been located.

During the fight, the 12-year-old fell backward and hit his head on the floor. The boy died from his injuries. This simple juvenile scuffle was never intended to be deadly force in nature, but it ended as such. I did not want to post this one, but it is what it is.
1 11 2012 Helotis, TX On Wednesday afternoon about 3:00, Manuel Rodriguez, 51, walked into at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church with Zeferina Castillo, 54 (the proprietor of a local funeral home).

1 11 2012 Rutherford, NJ In a rash of anti-Semitic attacks occurring in the area, the latest is attempted murder as someone used several Molotov Cocktails and other incendiary devices to firebomb the Congregation Beth El Synagogue. Rabbi Nosson Schuman was in the upstairs residence of the Synagogue where his wife and five children were also sleeping when the attack begun around 04:30 Wednesday AM. The Rabbi was treated for burns, but no other members of his family were injured when a firebomb broke through his window and failed to explode, but did ignite the bed he was sleeping on. 19-year-olds Aakash Dalal & Anthony Graziano arrested. Graziano was charged with 9 counts of attempted murder.
1 9 2012 Fredericksburg, TX About 09:00 on Monday AM a Memorial Presbyterian Church employee was alone in the church doing administrative duties.

He fled the scene before police arrived and the employee was unhurt.
1 8 2012 Alabama City, AL Luis Ibarra-Hernandez is an Islamist Extremist who intentionally led police into shootouts at two churches shortly after midnight.

After his arrest he acknowledged wanting to shoot police to call attention to Islam.
1 6 2012 Grand Rapids, MI A group of teens became angry at not being let into a youth event at the Streams of Hope Community Center (launched, and partially funded / operated by Hillside Community Church). In the confrontation that took place outside where the intruders were turned away, the anger led to 25 gunshots by the troublemakers, leaving one ministry organizer in the hospital with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his head. No arrests made of the 8 attackers as of press time.
1 4 2012 Albuquerque, NM As professional burglars often do, Mark Macoldowna (aka Mark Beechum – well known to law enforcement as a constitutionalist who despised Catholicism), James Kellogg and Kymberly Bates came in from out of town specifically to case an apparent high value soft target. They believed the Archdiocese Catholic Center held valuable cash assets that would be easy taking. As the robbery began, Beechum overcame an unarmed security guard who he beat, then left tied up as he found the safe and started to exit with it not knowing the guard had managed to send an alert. When Officer Mario Perez encountered Beechum, the robber dropped the safe and began firing at Officer Perez who returned fire killing Beechum.
1 1 2012 New York, NY 80 – 100 people were worshipping in the Al-Khoei Mosque (the largest Shite Mosque in North America) when an unidentified man hit the facility with a Molotov cocktail which engulfed the main entry doors. The same man is believed to be responsible for a total of 5 fire-bombings over the weekend, including another house of Worship – a home modified into a small Hindu temple. Police are questioning a person of interest.
1 1 2012 Colorado Springs, CO As worship service was going on in the Apostolic Assembly Church, a bullet apparently fired by a passing motorist came through a window.
1 1 2012 Arlington, TX

A man was headed from the parking lot into the Iglesia Ni Cristo Church of Christ around 06:30 AM Sunday morning. He was stopped by an unidentified man in the parking lot who robbed him and shot him in the stomach. Another suspect joined the shooter as they both left in the victim’s vehicle.

Question of the Week

I’d rather be judged by twelve than carried by six

July 23, 2012 | Posted in Freedom | By

Have you considered risking your future freedom by carrying concealed in a labeled gun free zone?

 

“I’d rather be judged by twelve than carried by six…”

The theater in Aurora, Colorado was a posted place where concealed carry was not allowed.  Law abiding, and trained gun owners know that the possibility of one gun owner in the theater would have probably caused the active shooter to choose another place to do evil.  Criminals prefer unarmed victims.

The safe and responsible answer to the question I pose is not to break the law.  I want to know if you, as a good guy/gal have thought about all that would happen if you indeed saved the day.  Call me and leave me a voice mail response for the next show.  Just repeat the question and give your answer, and reason for your way of thinking.

 

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.     Sir Edmund Burke

Have you given any thought to breaking the law, and losing your freedom to save the lives of innocent people from active shooters? You know that after the shooting, even if justified, you will be vilified, and by the media, the justice system and maybe even your pro-gun peers? Have you ever given it any thought?
