A Wild Boar was sharpening his tusks busily against the stump of a tree, when a Fox happened by. Now the Fox was always looking for a chance to make fun of his neighbors. So he made a great show of looking anxiously about, as if in fear of some hidden enemy. But the Boar kept right on with his work.

“Why are you doing that?” asked the Fox at last with a grin. “There isn’t any danger that I can see.”

“True enough,” replied the Boar, “but when danger does come there will not be time for such work as this. My weapons will have to be ready for use then, or I shall suffer for it.”

This week on the BMWAG show at the time of this recording the Carolinas were recovering from Hurricane Florence.  This natural disaster reiterates what I was saying in our 9/11 episode about preparation.

 

How many of you have had some medical training in addition to your hard and soft fighting skills?

 

Do you know the training is relatively cheap and you may use it more than your self defense stuff?

 

Can you save a life if you had to?

 

This week I want to ask you to search for someone to give you some medical first responder or crisis related training.

The September 11 attacks (also referred to as 9/11) were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda against the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The attacks killed 2,996 people, injured over 6,000 others,

Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines)—all of which departed from airports in the northeastern part of the United States bound for California—were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists. Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan. Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed. Debris and the resulting fires caused partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense) in Arlington County, Virginia, which led to a partial collapse of the building's west side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was initially flown toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers thwarted the hijackers. 9/11 is the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed, respectively.

 

Where were you during the 9/11 event seventeen years ago? Are you prepared beyond concealed carry? Do you have medical training? What about your kids, family? What if?

Michael and I ramble about where we were before the terrorist hit three points in the USA on 9/11/01 and then want to remind you that YOU can make a difference the next time. Be prepared.

If you live in a gun free zone known as a urban area - we are the most unprepared for a long time of inconvenience.

How many of your friends can you rely on? Take a moment to assess your situation. Are you ready? How will you fare?

Five Things You Need To Know About EDC

 

Michael and I talk about concealed carry every day.  When and where to carry is a little like walking around naked.  Some places its comfortable, and other times its inappropriate, offense and even illegal.  Mike says you need:

  1. Mindset
  2. Skills
  3. Tactics
  4. Gear 
  5. Insurance (we suggest the United States Concealed Carry Association https://uscca.blackmanwithagun.com )

I was listening to a conversation between two men, (younger than myself that were) saying how boring shotguns were. I decided not to interrupt. Instead I engaged Michael J. Woodland about it.
Michael J. Woodland wanted us to try something different on this week where we chatted online as we share this conversation about shotguns. I spoke outside Let me know what you think of our dialogue. If you were involved in a self defense shooting and had the choice between a rifle and a shotgun, would the court penalize you for using the AR-15 over the shotgun? What do you think.

Back in November 2017, my patient co-host Michael J. Woodland, interviewed St. Louis, MO firearms trainer and holistic community activist Kevin Dixie.  I apologize in advance for the lateness and the quality of the show.  I just got a chance to process the audio and present it this week for the Black Man With A Gun Show Podcast.  (For the record don’t use a Bluetooth device for an interview) And there are some sounds I couldn’t get rid of when a little girl does a drive by but please stick with it.  I did the best I could…

 

Kevin Dixie is awesome.  He is not talking to the choir for more FaceTime.  He is the real deal.  The audio starts off a little rough but try to stay with it because it is gold.  Family first, how to talk to people about the Second Amendment, empowering, law abiding, attacking misconceptions, for fatherhood. A mentor in the community.  Former LEO.  A good guy with a gun. A Black Man With A Gun. Aiming for the Truth conference coming.  He explains it. http://nootherchoice.net

Gun control is as old as gun powder itself.  There has always been one side in favor of controlling who can get a gun.  Gun control is great for politicians and the media because it is easy to sell.  It’s about money.  It’s good for corporations and celebrities in need of tax write offs.  Its good for politicians because you can’t offend a mechanical device.  It’s good for organizations because you can look like you are doing something socially correct.  It is good for preacher, and clergy because it sounds like you are socially conscious and aware but not.  Gun control is a billion-dollar industry.  It sells guns. 

In the inner city they get the mothers of slain teens to put their tears on display.  Politicians and organizations pimp these grieving women.  Imagine your mother being manipulated and used in the worse time of their lives.  Some of these ladies lost their children early on to the streets.  Their sons were in gangs or the drug trade and their death although tragic was not a surprise. 

This month we have the affluent kids of Parkland Florida gladly being exploited and pushed into the spotlight for the cause of gun control.  I suspect they are loving it, many being flown around and funded by millionaires to be on the spotlight.  Using their naiveté, voices and socialist tendencies they are being paraded and funded around the country to champion the cause of gun control.  They are surprised however that no one takes them serious.  They have no idea that every gun control measure that can be instituted has already been tried, implemented, legislated or proposed before. 

Gun control is a fail.  It was birthed in racism.  You cannot legislate human behavior.  Evil exist when good people do nothing.  Evil is real.  The heart of man is desperately wicked.  

Going to share some thoughts with you here about the mass shootings since 1991.  Remind you to share some compassion.  To think about what you are saying or writing before you release it and to help keep our country united.

History

On Christmas Day 1951, Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette, had just finished celebrating their silver anniversary when a bomb blew up their home in Mims, Fla. The explosion killed the couple, and they became the first martyrs from civil rights movement the 1950s. For seventeen years, in an era of official indifference and outright hostility, the soft-spoken but resolute Moore traveled the back roads of the state on a mission to educate, evangelize, and organize. On Christmas night in 1951, in Mims, Florida, a bomb placed under his bed ended Harry Moore’s life. His wife, Harriette, died of her wounds a week later. And I bet you have never heard of it.

George Burton Adams said:

“There is no such thing as a 'self-made' man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.”

Armed Citizens News, Michael J. Woodland on bore sighting, what is it? I have a new project coming, and encouraging the old guys, the OG’s

 

Crossbreed Holsters dot com and the United States Concealed Carry Assoication present, the black man with a gun show , the show that celebrates Americana, freedom, encourages, inspires, and introduces interesting people, new products from the internationally known Black Man With A Gun, and that’s me, Kenn Blanchard. If you would like to reach me my contact info is on black man with a gun dot com

 

 

 

 

I have discovered that the best people in my life, listen to this show.

 

I didn’t go to the SHOT Show because I didn’t have a plan. I could go, spend the money, see folks in the industry that I love but couldn’t motivate myself to do it.

 

I am trying to do something more than just beg for money and look like I am doing something. I want to really make a difference. I’m older now, don’t like wasting time, yours or mine.

 

You with me on that?

 

This show is dedicated to the guys that have survived to sport the gray hair. Fellas, don’t be ashamed, don’t get stressed out about being older, or not looking like you did when you were 25. Going to talk about middle age a little on this show and let you know its better than OK. Its going to be our redemption song. Maybe it’s the Jamaican coffee but I am feeling mellow, so this show is going to stay low key. This show might put some of you 5-11 shorts, tactical vest chest wearing, never been in combat, 3 pt slinging call of duty addicted, adrenaline junkies to sleep but that is alright, this is for the OG’s.

 

This is for the fathers of adult children, the men that remember who Walter Cronkite was, watched the Jetsons, the Beverly Hillbillies, got a transistor radio for Christmas, remember when the Dick van Dyke show wasn’t a reference to a girl on girl porno flick, saw Johnny Carson on TV, JFK, and the Beatles.

Fellas, I was born in the same year as Wesley Snipes, Tom Cruise, Matthew Broderick, Axl Rose, Ralph Fiennes, Demi Moore, Jim Carrey, and Sheryl Crow. The year was 1962. I survived civil rights, school busing, and some stuff that I can’t even speak about. You should be proud to have made it too.

I know if you are active on the net, facebook, forums etc, the younger guys rule for the most part and you can feel kinda out of it. I am here to tell you, its all good. We were young once too. If they are fortunate that might make it to our age. It made me think about the movie The Unforgiven and the Shootist, Rooster Cogburn and the movies where the old guys still got it.

When I started in security and then law enforcement I was trained with and carried a smith and Wesson model 19. That means I used the fabled speed loaders extensibly. Courses were really static practical pistol courses back then with a lot of time and barricades.

I carried a revolver in my travels prior abroad too, I switched to Browning Hi-Power however when I started doing executive personal protection details in Central and Latin America and the Middle East. The coveted trainers were the now gone guys, Charles Taylor, Jeff Cooper and their disciples. Masaad Ayoob was there too, but he was the smarter one. He dealt with the mind more than the macho. He has progressed and kept up with the times unlike many of the old dudes.   It was the age of the .45. You weren’t cool if you carried a 9mm but I usually did because it was easier to obtain 9mm internationally, and made a smaller footprint. Who was the gringo looking for .45 caliber ammunition esse? I trained ivy league types going into hostile environment, I qualified police and security officers for duty. I shared some of my mistakes carrying in countries where it was illegal for a foreigner to be armed. I shared stories of what happens when the feces hits the oscillating device. By the time I got to the Far east, I was using the Glock 17 first generation of course! In the 90’s I opened a business to help security guards qualify for armed duty and the new gun owner be safer that bombed. The guards didn’t want training they just wanted permission to carry so they could get paid higher than the unarmed post. Most hated firearms, didn’t know about gun rights, history or the sports involved.

 

I’ve actually hit more bad guys when I was driving in the protective details I was on that I have shot people but that is something for another time.

 

I was checking out the AR-15 world and on the rifle front, I am kinda lacking. I carried an uzi and a HK MP-5 a few times when I wasn’t the advance or on hot seat. I carried an M-16A1 back in corps. All back in the days of wine and roses of course.

 

Today, I hear the same arguments I did back in 1991 when I started my firearms training company. I think that is why I am so melancholy, been doing this stuff a long time and didn’t win the war.

 

Still hear folks talking about 9 mm over the .45.

 

For the record, I agree that the 1911 has its place but your choice for a self-defense side arm should be a newer polymer, double stacked something. We used to say if you need more than two rounds you are in combat and have the wrong firearm anyway. Well, I have since understood that bad guys have evolved and become more tribal. You are likely to have multiple attackers, a mob or a gang and need that spare magazine. Folks don’t stay down when shot. They don’t surrender if you don’t stop them and life in general is just going to suck during and after the incident so get over it, get through it and survive.

Everything is not combat though. You can’t live in a Call of Duty condition. So listen up you wanna-bee, mall ninjas, keyboard commandoes, three gun gear nerds, if you decide to get a concealed carry permit, its not a hunting permit on people that piss you off. All threats don’t require lethal force. If you can you can leave, leave. If someone hurts your feelings, insults you wife, live with it. I am saying this because just it just seems to be a rash of stupid people making the news. Too many immature, untrained and unskilled guys out there itching for a gunfight.

The only person I know out there teaching you how not to end up on the news, on YouTube, and in jail through necessary judicious use of force curriculum is Massad. I know you bought the firearm, You got the magazines, the pouches, the belts, the pants with the pockets, you got ammo for days, but every day is not combat.

Happy New Year and thank you for listening to the Black Man With A Gun Show Podcast.  In response to feedback that you liked when I did a little history, I am going to share some bullet points of the history of slavery in America up until the Emancipation Proclamation.  There was a old celebration of freedom that has been perverted called “Watch Night.”  It involved my ancestors and I want to share that with you.  Michael J. Woodland, talks about cleaning your rifle and you might here a few other things in this one.
By the President of the United States of America: A Proclamation. Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit: "That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom. "That the Executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of States, if any, in which the people thereof, respectively, shall then be in rebellion against the United States; and the fact that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be, in good faith, represented in the Congress of the United States by members chosen thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State, and the people thereof, are not then in rebellion against the United States." Now, therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Commander-in-Chief, of the Army and Navy of the United States in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and government of the United States, and as a fit and necessary war measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and in accordance with my purpose so to do publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days, from the day first above mentioned, order and designate as the States and parts of States wherein the people thereof respectively, are this day in rebellion against the United States, the following, to wit: Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, (except the Parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James Ascension, Assumption, Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the City of New Orleans) Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, (except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkley, Accomac, Northampton, Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth[)], and which excepted parts, are for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued. And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated States, and parts of States, are, and henceforward shall be free; and that the Executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons. And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defence; and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages. And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to garrison forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service. And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-seventh. By the President: ABRAHAM LINCOLN WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.
