and a joke… 

Felt like I needed a little trigger time so I contacted Tommy W. from Center Mass Combat Tactics here in Maryland. He had a great recommendation from a former student of his, Kevin Brown. Tommy is currently a SWAT officer in Maryland.

Declaration of Independence
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. 
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.



God Bless The United States of America.

Cool Blade in Hot July

July 3, 2013 | Posted in Products | By

You may not know it but I am a knife guy.  I have always been one.  The fact that you don’t know is because you were not supposed to.  It is something I use for defense so I never share.  Today I saw a very cool knife for utility and work that I think would do very well in combat, the field and when needed.  It is a big boy toy, not cosmetically or aesthetically sexy unless you are like me.  They cost a bit, and that is the only reason I don’t have one right now.  But I know good when I see it.  Hopefully, I will get a chance to interview someone from the company to give you some insights on how its made, the inspiration behind the design and who may be using them.

Podcast 326 It’s a Conspiracy

stressed bro

June 13, 2013 | Posted in Urban Shooter Podcast | By

I feel caught in the Crossfire on this the 326th Episode of the Urban Shooter Podcast.  Going to talk about Snowden, Conspiracies, Secrecy, Superman, Suzanne MCComas, her new book, the unofficial ammo Shortage report, and the Ten Myths about Gun control.


Whistleblower, Patriot or Traitor?

One of hottest topics this week has been on the American defense contractor that exposed Top Secret information to the media and fled to Hong Kong.  Folks are conflicted on whether he is a patriot, whistleblower or a traitor.  No matter what you think of this guy, or the US government what he did was illegal.


Let me explain.  In business when you are privy to information before the general public of a product or service you are required to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA).  What is more prominent than the James Bond type spying is corporate espionage?  Folks will “bite your rhymes,” steal your concepts and go to China and duplicate your stuff on the cheap.  They’ll sell your eBooks put your digital media property on Bit Torrent and give away your stuff for free just to be cute.  It’s not cool.


If you are big company, you take the sucka to court.  If you are a small business you just make them persona non grata in your community.  You spread the word that they are not welcomed and move on.  The offender usually becomes a hater, a troll, and creator of conspiracy theories.


In the US government, especially the intelligence community you sign secrecy agreements.  It’s like the NDA.  You will be privy to bits of information that is of interest to foreign governments.  Intelligence is gained in pieces not chunks.  Our system is great but not perfect.  America is great but not perfect.  In our freedom we give away stuff we shouldn’t.  The media and Congress give away so much classified information; hostile governments don’t even need safe crackers, and all the gizmos on a Mission Impossible movie.  They just need a physically appealing person, liquor and the Internet.  You can follow people and get bits of information.  We want to tell everything we know.  Well, some of us.


For example, you are a groundskeeper at a government facility.  Because you have a clean record, you got a good government job.  Because it is in a classified place you get paid more than you would cut for me.  Well, because you are a cool guy, folks that work in some sensitive projects talk to you at lunchtime.  You hear bits and pieces about something you would never hear about anywhere else.  What seems safe is more than the Chinese know about the top-secret project they have been interested in.  If you were to go to the press for your ten minutes of fame, are you a whistleblower?

You are about to be visited by the FBI for violating the secrecy agreement.  All the real spies in the land are going to try to befriend you to see how much more you know before the FBI snatches you off the street.


If you work in or for the US government as a contractor or a staff employee, be a person of integrity or get another job.  Your momentary fame hurts America.  It doesn’t expose the wrongful activity of our government.  We voted for that horrible Patriot Act.  We voted for the inept, corruptible and been in office too long politicians.  It’s not whistle blowing. It’s not patriotism.  It’s criminal.  I know a good spy story is sexy.  This ain’t it.

I’d tell you more but I have signed a secrecy agreement.



The Great Ammo Shortage




45% – Holding/hoarding ammo

10%- No Change, still shooting

40%- shooting less, more 22LR, dry firing more, not shooting big bore

E.W. Jackson For Virginia Lt. Governor

My friend, Republican candidate for the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, E.W. Jackson, held his first press conference today in Manassas, VA.  At the press conference, Jackson responded to criticism and personal attacks on his character.

Jackson, the great grandson of former slaves and Virginia sharecroppers in Orange County, VA, told his life story of how he struggled growing up, rebelled for a short while as a teenager, only to later overcome his difficulties through his religious faith. Jackson later graduated from Harvard Law School, sharing classes with now Chief Justice John Roberts.

During the conference, Jackson highlighted his vision and showed his support for personal liberty by saying, “Virginians do not need a government to tell them what to do or control their lives. They need a government that will do its job to protect their rights without overtaxing, over regulating or invading their privacy.”

Barbara Baird wrote a great article that is in the June/July edition of SHOT Business called “What Women Want” They Want To Be Treated Like Any Other Customers.

The FN as a funny but good link from Gene Ballay about his father’s day gift. Check that out.  And welcome to all the new members.




Superman and World War Z are on the way for the movies.  I have been a superman fan since 1963.  You know two Jewish high school kids wrote it from Ohio in 1933.  Sold to Detective Comics aka DC comics and has gone through some changes and reiterations of the years to what it is today.  Superman is American though, through and through.  It’s in our culture.

WW Z was a great audio book if you have a long commute.  Not sure how the movie translated it but I loved the audio.  Not a big fan of Angelina Jolie’s husband, probably because I coveted her but that is a personal problem I had to pray about.  I am over her now.


Suzanne McComas has a new book out. 


The Un-Named Church Podcast

The Un-Named Church Podcast is doing well.  It is growing as I am.  I will keep producing this podcast until my money runs out for the hosting and stuff.  Check out my Christian ministry site at  As some of you know, I resigned from the pastorate of the church I had been serving in for seven years in March.  I am now serving at St. Matthews Baptist Church in SW DC.  I just helping the pastor who just so happens to be my mentor anyway and playing my guitar with the choirs.  It’s working out well.  Not sure what the Lord has in store for me but it’s going to be for the best whatever it is.

Contemporary Insanity – Podcast 323

Memorial Day 2013

In this the 323rd episode of the Urban Shooter Podcast I am multi-tasking.  You’ll see a change to this site, too.

We’re celebrating Memorial Day with remembrance, BBQ, and Blues Music.   Our country is red, hot and blue over all the nonsense that has become our government, and popular culture.

Barbara Baird reflects on Memorial Day and she is a welcomed part of the show.  You can find her and her team at

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May.  Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.  Not to be confused with Veterans day that honors the dead and living that served.

A group calling themselves the National Black Church Initiative wrote that guns were a sin.

A Sermon: It’s Out of Context

“And it’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”  President B.H. Obama 


 A Poem of Honor

Freedom isn’t Free.

“I wish that you were here” 
My wife whispers on the phone 
Too many times

She has realized 
That freedom is not free

“No go away, Daddy” 
My little girl says 
She’s barely two

But already knows 
That freedom is not free

I have a little boy 
Born three months ago 
When I return

He’ll be near one 
Since freedom is not free

My parents often worry 
When I am away 
They mourn for me

And what I miss 
Since freedom is not free

There are children in this world 
Rich and poor alike

Whose parents do 
Not understand 
That freedom is not free

There are men who face evil 
For the sake of all

By their stand 
We realize 
That freedom is not free

There is a God Almighty 
Nailed upon a cross 
He paid the price

That we might live 
For freedom is not free

Many days I am away
From those I love most

Yet I thank God 
And carry on 
For freedom is not free.
