New Show Coming - Never Fry Bacon Naked: And other life lessons!

This week I want to honor a friend and announce a move. Congratulations to Rick Ector on his recent appointment to the NRA Board of Directors. I personally know how much this means to him and know he will do the best he can as a representative of firearms trainers, counselors, and gun rights activist. The guy has been focused and determined to save the lives of people in his home state of Michigan, especially the cities and women. He has single handedly created a space for women of color to get exposed and familiar with firearms in an untraditional environment. As a gun rights activist, Rick is a force of nature. He could become a politician if he weren't so nice, respectable, and honest. He often credits me for getting him involved but Rick didn't need me, I just fed the spark he had and it turned into a blaze. He is proof that determination, and positive thinking can do great things. Having a positive attitude means you have an optimistic outlook. That guy has taken the Second Amendment and the gun rights community to the level it should be. He has optimism. He has hope. He believes that if he keeps chugging on things will work out well. Being voted on the board of director for the National Rifle Association is a bigger deal to Rick that the rich and famous peers with him. I am proud to call him a friend. Like he says, "True Story." Check out the first episode of NWhy You Should Never Fry Bacon Naked: And other life lessons!; and subscribe at thank you. Kenn

Chopping it Up with Comedian Clay Miles

Conversation with a Comedian As I contemplated my life this week, I ran into a comedian named Clay Miles. Although our conversation had nothing to do with guns and the Second Amendment it was good. I wanted to learn about him and comedy. I needed to laugh. Maybe you do too. I am pondering and thinking about what direction to take this show. I took a moment to record and share it with you. I have a few questions for you too. Help me out. Claymiles Shalom Baby, Kenn

I identify as an American - Episode 703

Sharing some commentary and seeking your thoughts on what I said. Sharing what it takes to get started as a gun owner in Maryland and giving kudos to the Virginia Citizens Defense League, for leading as a gun rights organization. The state of Maryland isn’t quite up to the level of New York or California when it comes to gun control, but it ain’t for lack of trying. Maryland has tons of gun control laws on the books, and none of them have made Baltimore any safer, but that won’t stop them from doing more. Thanks for sharing, Shalom Baby, Rev. Kenn Blanchard

Shooting is Mental - 702

Gun ownership requires responsibility. There is more mental energy required than just owning a gun and shooting it recreationally. (that is what I mean by Shooting is Mental) Training will save you money and save your life. Seek some before you buy and you’ll thank me. Firearm ownership is not for everyone but it should be for anyone who has not given up his or her right to do so. Buying a firearm should be an educated decision not an emotional one. Shooting is mental because you have to navigate fact from fiction, and hype from reality. You have to make some judgement calls. You have to train your brain not to do what you have seen on TV or on social media. You have to make decisions that are literally life or death. Am I prepared to defend myself? Am I ready to go through with what is coming after I stop a bad guy? Can I handle the political foolishness? Have I been on the right side of this thing? Who do I believe now? Where do I get training from? Who is legit and not a mall ninja? Shooting is mental. These days everybody is an expert. Who do you trust to teach your family? Are you going to become a competitor? Going to start a club? Going to join one? Then there is the racism, sexism, separatism that is HUGE in this community. Us vs them. If you aren’t careful you’ll get sucked up in the foolishness. Yeah I said it. Foolishness, it’s one of the reasons after 30 years of gun rights activism you don’t see me at conventions and events. Below are a list you will probably see each time you go to a public range, learn them. A more in depth reason for them will follow. 1. Treat all guns as if they were loaded. 2. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. 3. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire. 4. Be sure of your target and what's beyond it. 5. Always wear eye and ear protection when shooting. 6. Be sure the barrel is clear of obstructions before shooting. 7. Don't alter or modify your gun, and have guns serviced regularly. 8. If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. 9. Use correct ammunition. 10. Learn the mechanical and handling characteristics of the firearm before you use it. Thank you for your prayers and financial support.

Check out my friends at: Https:// Situational awareness literally means to be constantly aware of your situation. Now in terms of security, it means to be constantly aware of your security situation and identifying potential threats and dangerous scenarios. This sounds a bit stressing to be aware of risks and danger all the time, specially if you live in a high risk level neighborhood or city. So we want to focus on how to achieve this awareness in a relaxed way. Situational awareness is more a state of mind than a learned skill. This is important not only for security agents and corporations, but also and most important for individuals to learn how to identify criminal behavior and other dangerous threats around them so they can react accurately and defend themselves and others.
