Dennis Burke is a liar, not a truth teller, whistleblower or victim. With blood on his hands, Dennis Burke is hardly someone to celebrate.

After nearly 10-hours of coaching me through my first International Defensive Pistol Association match, world shooting champion and Smith & Wesson Team Captain Julie Golob left the range with a smile on her face, and I did too. My first match was an overwhelming success.

After meeting world shooting champion and Smith & Wesson Team Captain Julie Golob at the SHOT Show in January, she invited me to come check out the 2014 International Defensive Pistol Association [IDPA] Indoor Nationals to get a first hand look at the shooting sports.

Over the weekend, I was back at Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona for the annual Gunsite Alumni Shoot (better known as GAS match). In case you missed my series back in April, you can check it out here.

Throughout Barack Obama's tenure as President of the United States and throughout every major scandal during that time period, nobody important in his administration has known anything important about anything...important.

The common thing that brings NRA members together is obviously a celebration of the Second Amendment and the guaranteed right embedded in our Constitution for the people to keep and bear arms without infringement, but there are many other common American values and themes found in the organization that are often overlooked.

Do you walk with your head down? Do you walk while looking at your iPhone? Congratulations! You’re a perfect target for a violent attack.

Much of the recent gun control debate around the country has been centered around “high capacity magazines,” which begs the question, just how many rounds of ammunition should a law abiding citizen be legally capable of putting into their gun? The answer is, as many rounds as it takes to stop a violent threat.

Now that my carbine training is complete (for now), I’m onto my defensive pistol class.

Posted April 15, 2013

Sunday was my third and final day of the Gunsite carbine course and the focus was on versatility of different weapons during a fight, knowing your environment during a fight and threat simulation.

Here at Gunsite everyone is armed with a pistol on their hip and it feels like the one of the safest places I have ever been. Buz Mills, the owner of Gunsite, carries a Smith & Wesson 1911. Being armed at all times requires a certain mindset, a mindset that enables you to defend your life in the presence of a threat.

My first full day of training at Gunsite in Paulden, Ariz. was what I would call a success, despite the fact I should have done a few more bicep curls before I got here.

Over the course of the next week, I'll be spending my time at Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona learning the ins and outs of the AR-15 and pistol handling.

While the use of pistols in the home are helpful for self defense, they’re not the best weapon to use when it comes to protecting property. This is why people need an AR-15. When politicians and gun grabbers tell us we “don’t need” semi-automatic, "assault," or "military style" weapons, they don’t know what they’re talking about and have clearly never survived a riot or a hurricane.

Since NBC sportscaster Bob Costas went on his halftime anti-gun rant on Sunday using words written by Fox Sports Columnist Jason Whitlock, we’ve heard a lot from the media and from uniformed commentators about America’s “gun culture.” The fact is, America actually has two gun cultures and it is important to distinguish them from one another.

During the second presidential debate of 2012, President Barack Obama said, “What I’m trying to do is get a broader conversation about how we reduce the violence generally. Part of it, is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced.” You can bet, he meant what he said.

The 2012 election will be the first in 30 years where the country will see a large organized presence dedicated to the integrity of votes cast, all thanks to voter integrity group True the Vote.

Let’s take a look at the deadly and violent consequences that came as a result of the Obama administration blaming a video after the initial planned attacks in Benghazi and Cairo.
