I’m giving away free life memberships at Front Sight, the world’s largest shooting school. Details here: www.7-4-1776.us
I need your help with a couple of things please:
Please spread the word about a new group blog I started for certain friends and family to whom I have transferred lifetime memberships good for free firearms training at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute (often called the “Disneyland for Gun Owners”) in order for them to blog as guest authors about their training experiences. [I obtained a large block of lifetime memberships (seventy-two, actually) — Diamond memberships with the Alaska add-on, valid for all courses in Alaska as well as the main facility near Las Vegas.] They will be blogging about the good they are doing for themselves, their families, and their communities, by training at the courses described here: http://www.frontsight.com/Courses.asp

The GUNTRUST® Course (GUNTRUST.ORG)
Please also spread the word about the $hundred$ of dollars’ worth of FREE firearms training I provide locally at my law office in Laguna Hills, in a FREE concealed carry class that qualifies you for a concealed carry permit recognized in 30 states (not California). Even if you don’t travel at all, you can use this training in order to carry safely right here in your own home in California, because in California no permit is required to carry in your home. The training I provide is based on my decade of training as a Front Sight student.
Many gun owners fail to get any formal training. They stick the gun in a drawer and expect to wave it around like a magic wand. Or maybe they had training in the military and don’t appreciate the need for handgun training, or for training in the legal, ethical, and moral implications of deadly force. In fact, I have not had much luck pitching my course to veterans at the local gun show—here are two actual responses: “I was in the military and trained with weapons a lot bigger than that!” and “I got all the training I need 28 years ago in the Marine Corps—I’ll just kill ‘em!” Many veterans do, of course, recognize the need for continued training, and I would know nothing without them.
Remember the May 2009 case of the Oklahoma City pharmacist (a military veteran) who shot a would-be robber in the head and then, as the robber lay unconscious, returned calmly with a different gun and shot him five more times in the stomach? Here is the story and video:
Who should you tell about this free class? Just about everyone, but in particular those who love their families and America and freedom under rule of law. Complete novices are welcome, and there is no need to ever touch a real firearm as the class uses highly realistic replicas and a laser simulated range in my office. Ages 9-99 welcome (kids must be accompanied by parent).
Take advantage of this now and tell your friends because, although this is my fourth year of teaching this class, I am not sure how long I can keep providing all of this training free of charge.

Prereq to “class” is attending a free clinic and passing a simple test:

Front Sight is often called "a Disneyland for gun owners" but a discussion on the radio with Glenn Beck reminded me how much more it is than a Disneyland. Beck was discussing the "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" and how that history used not the word "entertainment" but the word "amusement" to describe the role of "bread and circuses" figuring so prominently in the decline of aforesaid empire. To "muse" is to inspire. Just as "amoral" means lacking morality, "amuse" means simply to entertain without inspiration. A long time ago, the word even meant "deceive."
Yes, Front Sight is fun. More importantly, it inspires. Students of all walks of life, all politics, all faiths come to Front Sight. They keep coming, and some even become instructors, because Front Sight is a purpose-based organization focused on improving the image of gun ownership. Front Sight students know that what kills innocent crime victims (and republics) is not the gun, but the IMAGE of gun ownership. Front Sight students are inspired to improve that image through continued training and by bringing others to Front Sight who share that mission.
UPDATE: had a good time at the fundraiser. Bill Hunt basically endorsed personal protection as "good cause." When asked by me individually and by another before the full audience, he quite clearly indicated he favored broad issuance, excepting only those in prohibited categories who cannot have a gun anyway.
Sheriff Mack gave a great speech on America's sheriffs being the last (bloodless) defense against growth of the federal leviathan. He also gave a nice plug to Front Sight, mentioning he trained there with family.
fundraiser today with sheriff mack appearing in support of bill hunt 3pm to 6pm old world huntington beach bring checkbook hopefully candidate will be clear on ccw issue both at this meeting and on the campaig trail.
I joined him in 2002 (after reading of Front Sight through WND and taking the free submachine gun course with my wife in 2000), and now my wife and daughter and brother are all life members. Video:
