Guns, history, firearms reviews and a conscientious look weekly for the mature people in the gun community about whats going on. The name is not to incite but to inspire. Kenn Blanchard showcases the diversity of the gun culture with experts on hunting, gun rights, the justice system, American history, and self defense. It is done with humor and compassion for all people.

We are in for a whirl..

This week I am reminded to remind you that we are all part of a cycle.  Gun control and the issues we are seeing today happened before.  Michael Crighton wrote:   if you don’t know history you don’t know anything.  you are a leaf that doesn’t know it is part of a tree.

 

Going to reflect and share details of the 1966 Texas Tower Shooting, the Gun Control Act of 1968, and how all of that as well as the news sounds familiar to 1966 today.  Was Chares Whitman nuts, just evil, had a medical condition or what?  And did it matter?  We use the same excuses today.

This week on the Black Man With A Gun Show I talk about “de-escalation.” As gun owners and responsible citizens that listen to this show we are familiar with “use of force,” but I have never heard of techniques to prevent escalation of disruptive behavior with your own nonverbal behaviors. I provide ten tips for de-escalation I got from www.crisisprevention.com .

 

We need to learn how personal space, body language, and listening skills can help effectively de-escalate the disruptive behavior of those in our care.

I took the name of black man with a gun in 1999 to promote my book and gun rights activism.  I thought I would stop after it no longer was effective.  There are many pro-gun groups now but is there unity?  What do we need?  What has happened?  On this week I talk about Black Lives Matter and SNCC.  We have a new feature called Gun of the week.  This week I talk about Glock. Interview with Charlie Cook of Gun Grams. And more... Please share the Mp3 link with a friend.  Write a positive review for iTunes, Spreaker or Stitcher Radio if that is how you listen.  Thank you.
