Airports!

23 July 24 Airports! As is the case with so many other metro areas, homeless bums, who have no legitimate business there, are allowed to “hang-out” at the Miami International Airport (MIA) Many of these “homeless” are mentally ill, criminally violent, and thus very dangerous.  The last place in the world they should be is […]

Beware!

18 July 24 Crescendo! As JRB’s embarrassing departure from the presidential race seems increasingly imminent (despite his repeated insistence that he’ll continue his campaign, at least until yesterday) and the DNC Convention in Chicago (scheduled for next month) promising to be war-ridden, both inside and out, and with each passing day, getting a Democrat’s name […]

Chaos, just under the surface!

14 July 24 Yesterday’s Assassination Attempt! There is much we still don’t know about the assassination attempt on the life of DJT yesterday in PA, but I am compelled to draw attention to these facts: Were it not for a couple of centimeters, we would all be waking-up to a frightening, chaotic “New Age in […]

Never Believe it!

12 July 24 “Shangri-La?” Democrat politicians are quick to insist that “ordinary citizens” don’t need “weapons of war,” nor “high-capacity” magazines They love cynical sound-bites like, “No one needs ten bullets to kill a deer,” (as if we were even talking about sport shooting). Yet, at the same moment leftists are mouthing such dishonest platitudes, […]

Home Invasion!

10 July 24 “Put yourself in a position to ‘be lucky’” Driesell “Armed?” A well-coordinated home-invasion, involving at least three suspects, in CA (LA area), on Tuesday came to an abrupt end when the homeowner shot and critically injured one of the suspects.  The other suspects quickly fled the scene. The single injured suspect (now […]

Old School

8 July 24 “Shooting is a science, but ‘fighting for your life’ is an Art. The difference is identical to that between limit and no-limit poker. When competing, you’re shooting at an inert target. When fighting, your target is alive and is sincerely trying to kill you, by whatever means he can! Limit poker, like […]

An Astonishing Place!

5 July 24 “Hey, you never know!” The foregoing is a promotional line used to advertize NY’s State Lottery The State of NY would do well to listen to its own advice! NYPD has announced that a suspect has just been arrested for the high-profile sexual battery (Monday of this week, in the middle of […]

First Responder?

3 July 24 Tomorrow’s Independence Day Holiday was made possible by audacious American citizens with privately-owned “weapons of war!” It’s been less than 300 years. Have we forgotten so soon? For the smugly naive, who keep saying, “In an emergency, just call 911,” a recent interview with LAPD’s current Chief may come as a jolt! […]

Debate?

28 June 24 Worst outcome Increasingly-desperate hopefulness on the part of JRB supporters was dashed last night during the first (and likely the only) televised Presidential Debate. What was actually said (or mumbled in the case of JRB) was far lass consequential than the demeanor of the candidates. DJT was enthusiastic, spirited, focused, precisely controlled, […]

Last Resort

26 June 24 Avoidance, vigilance, awareness, deterrence, disengagement, de-escalation We emphasize all of the foregoing, but even in combination they only go so far, and collectively fall far short of representing an absolute solution to burgeoning personal-security issues that now greatly concern all Americans. Deadly “Jack-in-the-Box” attacks, carried-out by EDPs and other VCAs, are now […]

Taken Seriously?

23 June 24 Naive, leftist clowns, even in Israel! With frightening events of 7 Oct 23 still fresh on their collective minds, many Israeli women, who heretofore never thought of themselves as gun-owners/carriers, have since purchased and are carrying pistols. This trend is disturbing to soft-headed leftists, who (like leftists everywhere) continue to regard “victimhood” […]

Nothing to Lose!

20 June 24 “Innocent until Proven Indigent!” Motto of leftist prosecutors (and there are many) Operators need to be aware that, when we are involuntarily confronting a VCA, we’re almost always facing a person who has “nothing to lose,” while we have everything (literally!) to lose. Leftist prosecutors are well aware of this! When physically […]

Exciting Times!

18 June 24 “I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. Of course, this makes me forever ineligible for public office.” HL Mencken Ready or Not! Many (including LEOs) are falling into the trap of becoming programmed by the media and thus accepting that terms like “shocking” and “surprising” are […]

“Good Old Days”

13 June 24 “Be prepared to be unprepared” JV Jones Incidents of OISs (Officer-Involved Shootings) are spiking right now, particularly in our metro areas. With our contentious election-year in full-swing, deadly violence (some political, some “regular”) will continue to increase exponentially. Owing to our open borders, new “911 Events” are likely! Normal-capacity magazines on modern […]

More Dogs!

11 June 24   More on Dogs:   Many sage comments received from my last Quip!   Here are some points that should be added:   1) Do not insert yourself in-between fighting dogs!   Attempting to break-up a dogfight physically, by intervening with your own body, is pretty much a guarantee of severe bodily […]

Dogs!

10 June 24   Dogs   The City of Los Angeles’ Department of Animal Services maintains several animal shelters, including the one where a near-fatal dog attack occurred several days ago.   A kennel supervisor at this particular shelter (with twenty years experience) was nearly killed during a precipitous dog attack.   The dog involved […]

“Random,” the fraudulent modifier

7 June 24   “Random?”   Last Wednesday in OH, a mother and her three-year-old child were victims of a precipitous stabbing attack in the parking-lot of a local grocery store, in the middle of the day!   Attacker and victims were unknown to each other.   The child died as a result. His mother […]

DTI Web Page back up!

7 June 24   Our DTI Web Page at defense-training.com is back up, and “normal,” once again!   Our Web Host (Godaddy) was unable to explain, in any intelligible manner, why it was “suspended” yesterday.     I can only assume, like most “woke” employers these days, they employ an army of incompetent and erstwhile unemployed […]

“Vain and Ambitious”

6 June 24   “We Own the Streets!”   In Marxist ideology, an “army” is required to impose (by force) classic feudalistic dogma upon innocent citizens.   It’s the strategy ever employed by Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, and many others among the beasts of history.   For our current gaggle of “vain and ambitious” […]

DTI Web Page

6 June 24   Our DTI Web Page at defense-training.com is down temporarily, for some unknown reason!   We’re working feverishly to get it back up!   In the interim, when you want to register for a DTI Course, call me directly at 970 227 2237   I’ll take care of everything from here!   […]
