Take a moment to think back on all your previous firearms training. Chances are when you train and practice, it’s with either the pistol or the rifle.

Sure, you’ve worked a few drills in there on transitioning from the rifle to the pistol, but probably very little time has been spent actually learning to fight with both weapons, combining them into one package. To maximize our combative cap abilities we want to blend every weapon of our arsenal into one package, developing the skills and knowledge to seamlessly flow from one weapon to another as necessary.

Tip: Avoid any fight, if safely possible, to do so.

This first axiom or belief of Sun Tzu is probably his most famous and most important one for many practitioners. It is very elementary and uncomplicated. Initially, he believes it is best if we can AVOID deadly-force confrontations which use physical and deadly force, along with its possible lethal and negative consequences. Sun Tzu was a Taoist who focused on living a simple and balanced life in harmony with nature. Taoists believe that conflict is not good and that if you have a problem with something, it is better to find a way around it and avoid it first, if at all possible.

Mexico’s Catholic Church has suspended a controversial priest who has advised parishioners to carry guns to fight off drug cartels.

Better known as “Father Pistolas,” Father Alfredo Gallegos is a priest in the violence-plagued western state of Michoacan who has himself sometimes carried a weapon.

A circular from the Archdiocese of Morelia, the state capital, instructed other priests not to allow Gallegos to celebrate Mass.

While the archdiocese did not answer phone calls seeking to confirm the order, a priest in a neighboring diocese who was not authorized to be quoted by name confirmed the authenticity of the order Wednesday.

Former Youngstown police Chief Jimmy Hughes, now a Youngstown city councilman, said it’s his duty to help his East Side constituents, which is why he confronted several teenagers and men Tuesday that he suspected of committing break-ins in the neighborhood.

Hughes called Youngstown police at 5:50 p.m. Tuesday to report that he questioned four males (two adults, two teens) in a vehicle in the 3300 block of Oak Street Extension near McKelvey Lake to determine whether they are responsible for area break-ins — and one of them took a swing at Hughes, 70.

The confrontation resulted in Hughes drawing his firearm in self-defense, according to a police report the officers wrote under the category of “miscellaneous noncriminal incident.”

A federal appeals court has agreed to let New York's concealed gun law remain in effect until a three-judge panel weighs in on a court ruling that blocked parts of the restrictive gun measure.

In a two-sentence ruling, 2nd Circuit Court Judge Eunice Lee referred New York state's request for a stay of the temporary restraining order to a three-judge panel while the state appeals the merits of a ruling blocking the enforcement of part of the law.

The court also granted the state's request to pause the temporary restraining order from going into effect pending the result of the panel review.

The annual Rod of Iron Freedom Festival was held on October 7-10, at Kahr Arms in Greeley, drawing an abundance of vendors, many selling patriotically themed items. Food stand offerings ranged from funnel cakes, sausage sandwiches, and ice cream to Asian cuisine--Chinese, Thai and Korean.

At other stands, politicians extolled their virtues as did campaign workers.

A group of Asian people, mostly Chinese and Thai, said that their lives were in jeopardy every day in China and that they were thrilled to be in America. They said that the word for America in their country means “beautiful country.”

NY: Court Gives New York State More Time to Argue for Its Gun Law

The judge had granted New York three business days before his order would have gone into effect and on Monday, Attorney General Letitia James appealed to the Second Circuit. She argued that the court’s ruling had been improper, and asked that his order be stayed as the case continues.

The appeals court granted the lesser of Ms. James’s requests, for a temporary administrative stay and referred her other request — that Judge Suddaby’s order be stayed until her office could appeal it at length — to a three-judge panel that decides motions. The full gun law will remain in effect at least until that panel decides on the merits of Ms. James’s motion.

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams denied she lost her last bout against Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018. She’s trying again and there’s no denying her gun control agenda would be a disaster for Georgians’ Second Amendment rights.

Abrams’ antigun platform isn’t the only problem. Her Second Amendment hypocrisy is what should have Georgians hopping mad.

Abrams has spent more than $1.2 million on private armed security all while calling for Georgians to give up their rights to protect themselves.

Thailand will toughen its gun possession and drug laws, its Interior Ministry said on Wednesday, following the day care center massacre of 36 people, including children, in the Southeast Asian kingdom's worst mass killing.

The country was left reeling after an ex-police officer forced his way into a day care center in the Na Klang district of northeastern Nong Bua Lamphu province last week, murdering 24 children and their teacher before killing his wife, their child and himself.
 

WA: What to do if you're worried someone will break a No-Contact Order

Benton County Prosecutor Andy Miller says most no-contact orders have consequences that come after the order has been broken but there is not much the person can do in the moment that someone else is breaking the no-contact order.

"If you're protected and somebody is violating that no contact order and assaults you then you have a right to self defense just like you would if someone broke into your house," says Miller. "But that isn't necessarily going to be an answer for everybody."

Maybanks joined Linn County Sheriff Brian Gardner in asking Iowans to vote no to this amendment at a press conference Tuesday afternoon. It was held by the group "Iowans for Responsible Gun Laws".

Sheriff Gardner said the strict scrutiny in the amendment was not just a turn of phrase.

"Don't be fooled. The inclusion of strict scrutiny language was not a simple oversight by legislator," Gardner said. "Rather this was an intentional inclusion, meant to ensure the most absolute minimum of gun laws in Iowa. Both now and into the future."

Writing for Reason, Eugene Volokh, a Gary T. Schwartz Distinguished Professor of Law at UCLA, points out that if PayPal concludes that an individual buys publications that are deemed to promote “hate” or “intolerance,” the person might lose $2,500.

“Might you, for instance, be sharply criticizing a religion? Or saying things that sharply condemn, say, government officials (police, FBI, etc.) in ways that some might say involve ‘promotion of hate’? Or praising people who have acted violently (e.g., in what you think is justifiable self-defense, or defense of others, or even war or revolution)? If PayPal thinks it’s bad, it’ll just take your money,” Volokh warns.

On Thursday, Oct. 27 a group of interested citizens attended an informational meeting put on by Lee County Republicans in cooperation with the Iowa Firearms Coalition. It concerned the proposed “Freedom Amendment” to the Iowa Constitution’s Bill of Rights, which will be on the ballot this coming Nov. 8. Dave Funk, president of the Iowa Firearms Coalition, pointed out that Iowa is one of only six states (the others being California, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and Minnesota) which do not have similar Second Amendment rights, as stated in the U.S. Constitution, in their state constitution.
 

Ruger LCR .22 LR Tested and Reviewed

Ruger has a long history building rimfire handguns—so the Ruger LCR .22 LR has a lot of company. The first firearm to bear the Sturm-Ruger name was the Mark I autoloading pistol, which rolled off Ruger’s production line—then a small shop in Southport, Conn., with barely a dozen workers—in 1949.

In 2009, 60 years (and millions of firearms) after that landmark event, the company introduced the Ruger LCR, a double-action revolver with a concealed hammer. Now, the LCR—which stands for light compact revolver—wasn’t designed exclusively as a rimfire platform.

The 2013 statute allowing handguns to be carried for lawful purposes confers the right to bring a gun almost anywhere, the president and founder of Gun Owners of Arkansas said.

Gary Epperson told the Garland County TEA Party Wednesday that his advocacy group plans to test that assertion.

"Under the wording of the journey law we changed, we think that gives you the right to carry right into the Capitol without a permit," he said.

“By weaponizing the security state and federal law enforcement for their own partisan political ambitions, Democrat leaders are undermining the rule of law and turning our democracy into a banana republic,” Gabbard said in the video. She talked about policies that have led to violent criminals being released from prison and surging crime rates.

“Is it any surprise that firearm purchases for self-defense have skyrocketed over the last couple of years? Under the Obama administration, the IRS was used to target conservative groups,” Gabbard said. “Now Biden’s Department of Justice recently indicted 11 pro-life activists for organizing an event blockading an abortion clinic. They didn’t use physical force. They weren’t dangerous.”

A federal court temporarily halted a lower court’s restraining order against New York’s concealed carry law Wednesday.

“I think New York was prepared for its former public carrier law to get struck down in June,” said Eric Ruben, a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice and a second amendment expert. “It was ready to go with new sets of restrictions that got passed in July.”

Ruben joined Bobby Cuza on “Inside City Hall” to explain Wednesday's decision and the ongoing legal battle over New York's new gun law.
 

MA: U.S. Supreme Court aids gun rights yet again

In Morin v. Lyver, the First Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the Massachusetts law using a two-step balancing test that the Supreme Court forcefully threw out in its New York State Rifle & Pistol decision. The Supreme Court has now vacated the First Circuit’s ruling and sent the case back down to be heard again under the high court’s new standard, which is based not on subjective judicial balancing tests, but on history.

This time Massachusetts will have to prove that its law barring some people from buying guns is similar to restrictions that have traditionally been viewed as consistent with the right to keep and bear arms.
 

It’s a fact, gun safety saves lives

With just weeks to go before one of the most consequential midterm elections in American history, the airwaves are flooded with images of candidates brandishing guns, our social media feeds are filled with declarations that the Second Amendment is under siege, and many political rallies have been dominated by rhetoric that undermines our democracy.

It’s all extremist hot air. These candidates want us to believe our government and anyone working to mitigate the effect of America’s gun violence epidemic are hell-bent on taking away your rights and liberties. But the reality is that gun laws save lives, and an overwhelming majority of Americans in red, blue and purple states want them.

A week later came another decision. With Republicans withdrawing their support for him in droves, Jacobs announced he would not seek reelection.

The expiration of his career is another sign of the polarization that is ever-growing in a Congress where, as Jacobs said, “If you stray from a party position, you are annihilated.”

“There’s a lot of single-issue voters in the Republican Party on this issue, and on the other side, abortion,” he said in an interview with The Associated Press.

“The idea of big tents for parties, I think, is very important. And right now it’s very strident both ways, and I just don’t think that’s good," he said.

I have to admit that I am enjoying seeing many of today’s defensive shooters rediscovering the double-action revolver. Let’s face it: The revolver vs. semi-automatic debates are silly, and the armed citizen is well advised to select the defensive gun he or she shoots well and has confidence in. The DA revolver ought to be considered when anyone is searching for that truly personal defense gun.
