After being late with last week I tried to get ahead of the things. This weeks show brings back Mama Helen (The Conclusion of Buying a Regulated Firearm in MD); I talk about revolvers: Why I recommend one as a first gun and how to clean it) A couple of Urban Shooter listeners talk about Urban Rifles, and I introduce a new feature, I call "Zombie Strike". In the news, I ask you to pay attention to the plight of Oleg Volk and The High Road Forum. The Shoot Don't Shoot, Decide proposes a question that you can answer on the Gun Rights Radio.Com forums (The Urban Shooter) and thankful for 777+ listeners.
I also designed a new target called Zombie 2.5 for sale to raise money for a church van I'd like to get for our seniors.

Fall is when all the good TV shows come out. Its also the work of the devil because that is when you shouldn’t and can’t watch TV. You know what I mean. When I was in school, cool shows came out, I had homework. After I got a little older, when the cool shows came out, I had a date, worked night shift, something. Well this episode we are previewing a custom made target I had made up and some more silliness for the show to keep you smiling. I am preparing for October already and the theme of the month will be borrowing from Halloween and scary stuff like Zombies. I had a good time with the Labor Day show, and then it hit me. Well, you’ll hear about it soon. This week Mama Helen is back from the beach to talk about how to buy an regulated firearm in Maryland part one, steps 1-5 News- Anti-gun DC politicians get slapped by reality Tips from an US listener from in New Mexico about securing your firearm Interview with Oleg Volk Clinton Gun Ban AGAIN And introducing my newest feature, Zombie Strike Sorry for the late show.

What this country needs is more people to inspire others with confidence, and fewer people to discourage any initiative in the right direction more to get into the thick of things, fewer to sit on the sidelines, merely finding fault more to point out what's right with the world, and fewer to keep harping on what's wrong with it and more who are interested in lighting candles, and fewer who blow them out. -Father James Keller

Although innocent, defenseless, law-abiding, decent, harmless, female, gay, weak, elderly, victimized, abused and other citizens in D.C can now keep and bear arms thanks to the Supreme Court’s glorious ruling supposedly restoring the rights the government had mercilessly confiscated, creating the biggest crime-ridden phony “gun-free” zone in the nation, D.C. residents cannot obtain handguns, which are “the
quintessential self defense weapon” according to the Court, thanks to federal law:
18 USC § 922(b) It shall be unlawful for any licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to sell or deliver --
(3) any firearm to any person who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, does not maintain a place of business in) the State in which the licensee’s place of business is located...
No word yet on whether dealers in adjacent Maryland and Virginia are willing to risk their business licenses and incur prison sentences, to sell legal firearms to residents of D.C. Officials in D.C. implied slightly that it would be OK, but they have no authority over BATFE, the agency that would make the arrests.

I took a few minutes from my vacation to upload this live from Delaware. This week an interview with local DC firearm instructor Ricardo Royal whom testified at a DC City Council hearing on the aftermath of the US Supreme Court.
Kenn provides a warning to all gun rights activist to be careful that the enemy doesn't use their exuberance against us all. Words are powerful and politicians (lawyers) are known to twist the good intentions of people to their benefit. Don't think you are "all that" when it comes to politics.
This is a teaser as next week we are going to really go at some tough subjects.

"I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah!"
Today I celebrate the Supreme Court decision to end the misinterpretation of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution in our nation’s cities and my 46th birthday. (I am 30 years old with 16 years experience!)
This podcast will use a few bars from Motown’s Rare Earth, “I just want to celebrate” which pretty much captures how I feel about everything right in my life. Interesting note is that this was one of Motowns first, all White American groups that had this hit in 1971. I love the fact that music is universal and the color of your skin doesn’t mean “jack”. Play that funky music …
OK the Supreme Court of the United States agrees with us that the Second Amendment is an individual right. Now what? I know there is confusion as to whether the law where you live is a state or federal law and which one will finally rule.
The Supremacy Clause in the Constitution says: This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
Meaning that federal law always trumps state law if there is a conflict between the two. If there is no conflict then the state law will be used but if there is any question or conflict of the two reading as the same, then the federal rule would win. The bad news is, cities and states can and will still create restrictions to keep you from being able to protect yourself and family in the letter of the law. It is no coincidence that lawyers become politicians.

Race and a memorial to the late great Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Just sharing my thoughts on race, and the gun issue. This is not a long show, just what I am feeling. I remember when King was killed. I usually listen to his sermons throughout the year and I included his last for you here, "I am so glad you didn't sneeze". Not a gun topic but a part of American history. And how else are you going to hear it unless your friend and brother shares it with you?

Can I toot my own horn? (thank you) The Urban Shooter is not about black, white, yellow or brown people but about everyone. We live in Diverse City baby! Folks try to pigeon hole, type-cast and stereotype but I rebuke those devils every time. On this show, you are going to hear from the very able and nice, Jane from the Second Amendment Sisters, sharing insight on what one woman thinks about the range, how best to train women, holsters, the right to carry, carrying concealed and a whole lot more. Inquiring minds wanted to know:
How does a guy introduce the shooting sports to his girlfriend or wife? Can he with success or is it like driver's Ed? (is it better from an outsider) Do you think women are better instructors of women in firearms? What got you into shooting? How do you defend it to your friends? What kind of holsters do you find comfortable? Do you carry concealed? What problems do you encounter that you think men don't have to think about when shooting, carrying concealed, being in the gun culture?Over in Hong Kong, the brothers over there have taken IPSC training to another level, under cover with air soft guns. Great for your basement (hint, hint) Airsoft Retailers: (Tokyo Marui or Western Arms are the two best brands) WGC Shop (They have some nice custom options)/ STEEL HAWK Airsoft Elite Airsoft (Nice but pricey!) Join the Urban Shooter Association today and support the show and the mission. thanks, Until next week, Kenn

With all the whoopla about presidents, I thought about a couple of things for my campaign to keep the right to keep and bear arms around for my grandkids if I get any. First, please "Vote for me" by leaving a comment on iTunes for THE Urban Shooter Podcast. Also on Podcast Alley and Podshow. After the Super Bowl, there has been some terrible crimes across the country. Just making a note of it.
Secondly, consider contributing to my "Campaign" by donating to help a grassroots activist produce some pro-gun music for the college campuses and a book to stop Gun Buy Backs in the cities and churches.
I also provide some food for thought on debating and arguing with anti's. There is a better way to do it you know?

one year anniversary of The Urban Shooter Podcast and Garrett Industries. The SHOT show is this week in Las Vegas, NV. Agent 47. I missed episode 47.
It wasn't anything conscious, I had to take my math course twice in college. As far as the count goes, the numbers of the shows are still correct, I did some promos that helped me miscount. Kudo's if you noticed.
The popular video-game series Hitman features a main character known only as Agent 47, a reference to the barcode tattooed on the back of his head (as seen to the right)
Forty-seven is the 15th prime number, a safe prime, the 13th supersingular prime, and the 6th Lucas prime. 47 is a highly cototient number. It is an Eisenstein prime with no imaginary part and real part of the form 3n − 1.

Show number 54 talks about the infamous Red Ryder BB Gun, air soft, I finally bought one to check out. And what happens when you shoot a gun into the air? Can that bullet kill somebody?

His next course is 4 Feb 2008 @6 PM. Kenn puts the beg on something fierce after his disappointing attempt and raising money over the past few months.

I think is time to change things on the pro-gun side. I think we should go on the offensive. Stop taking all the crap we do and be about some business. (while that is not good grammar, it is motivating talk) I am looking for some like-minded patriots to help me go on the offensive by first tackling the gun buy back programs. Let's get a plan. This show also introduces a new identity for me. I am morphing away from the BlackManWithAGun into The Minister of Defense.
This episode is less than 20 minutes long. I ask folks to stop "Preaching to the Choir" and advertise for a few of our friends.
