WHEN LOCAL RESIDENT CASEY THOMPSON BECAME AWARE OF THE ATTACK UNDERWAY AT THE PUBLIC SAFETY BUILDING, HE GRABBED HIS RIFLE AND HEADED TO THE SCENE. THOMPSON WAS ABLE TO CONVINCE NICOLAI TO DROP HIS WEAPON AND LIE ON THE GROUND BEFORE ALASKA STATE TROOPERS ARRIVED.

NAT’L – SELF-PROTECTION – Three Firearms for Emergency Preparation

A FIREARM THAT IS KEPT SPECIFICALLY FOR SELF-DEFENSE IS AKIN TO A FIRE EXTINGUISHER: IT IS LIFE-SAVING EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT MAINTAINED FOR RAPID AND UNEXPECTED DEPLOYMENT TO MITIGATE A THREAT. A SAFE HOME SHOULD HAVE BOTH TOOLS READILY AVAILABLE TO AUTHORIZED USERS, AND BOTH SHOULD BE MAINTAINED REGULARLY. FOR THOSE OF US THAT ARE FIREARMS AND SHOOTING ENTHUSIASTS, GUNS BECOME MORE THAN JUST LIFE-SAVING EQUIPMENT; THEY MAY BE OUR HOBBY OR EVEN INTEGRAL TO OUR LIFESTYLE OR WORK. REGARDLESS, LET US REMEMBER THE MOST ESSENTIAL ROLE OF THE FIREARM. DURING THIS CURRENT PANDEMIC, WHICH HAS BEEN DECLARED A NATIONAL EMERGENCY, WE ARE EXPERIENCING SOMETHING RATHER UNIQUE IN THE LIFETIMES OF MOST CURRENTLY LIVING. WHILE CIVILITY HAS, FOR THE MOST PART, BEEN MAINTAINED THUS FAR, PEOPLE ARE SCARED.

NAT’L – SELF-PROTECTION – 11 More Cases in Which Responsible Gun Owners Saved Lives

IN RECENT WEEKS, SEVERAL INSTANCES INVOLVING THE RECKLESS USE OF FIREARMS DOMINATED NATIONAL HEADLINES. IN ONE CASE, A GEORGIA MAN TRAGICALLY LOST HIS LIFE WHEN ARMED CIVILIANS CROSSED THE LINE BETWEEN DEFENSIVE NECESSITY AND VIGILANTISM. BUT SUCH HEADLINES TELL ONLY ONE SIDE OF THE STORY. EVERY DAY, MANY LAW-ABIDING AND RESPONSIBLE AMERICANS USE THEIR FIREARMS LAWFULLY TO DEFEND THEIR LIVES, LIBERTY, AND PROPERTY. IN FACT, AS THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION CONCLUDED IN 2013, ALMOST EVERY MAJOR STUDY ON THE ISSUE HAS FOUND THAT AMERICANS USE THEIR FIREARMS IN LAWFUL SELF-DEFENSE BETWEEN 500,000 AND 3 MILLION TIMES A YEAR. THESE INSTANCES OF PROPER DEFENSIVE GUN USE PROVIDE AN IMPORTANT BUT OFTEN UNREPORTED COUNTERBALANCE TO THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION.

NAT’L – SELF-PROTECTION/HOME DEFENSE – These 5 Sporting Rifles Leave The Competition In The Dust

THEY CAN'T BE BEATEN.
