AND IT'S NOT JUST 2ND AMENDMENT ENTHUSIASTS ... IT'S ALL SORTS OF FOLKS WHO ARE SCARED STIFF OVER THE PROSPECT OF VIOLENCE ON THE HEELS OF THE ELECTION. GUN AND AMMO STORES ACROSS MICHIGAN ARE SEEING A HUGE SURGE IN FOLKS TRYING TO BUY FIREARMS, AND IT BECAME ALL TOO REAL WHEN THEIR GOVERNOR BECAME THE TARGET OF A PLOT TO KIDNAP AND POSSIBLY KILL HER.

TENSIONS HAVE BEEN BREWING ALL YEAR, AND PEOPLE ARE ARMING THEMSELVES.HEAD OF THE HARBOR OFFICIALS NY WILL NOT ENFORCE VILLAGE CODE PROHIBITING BOW AND ARROW USE AFTER AN APPEALS COURT STRUCK DOWN A SIMILAR PROHIBITION IN THE TOWN OF SMITHTOWN. OFFICIALS SAID THE COURT DECISION "CALLS INTO QUESTION THE VALIDITY" A SECTION OF CODE THAT LISTS BOWS AS FIREARMS, WHOSE USE IS LARGELY PROHIBITED WITHIN THE VILLAGE. ANOTHER SECTION OF CODE REGULATING HUNTING MAY ALSO HAVE TO BE REVISED BECAUSE IT "INCORRECTLY REFERENCES" NEW YORK STATE LAWS THAT BAN DISCHARGE OF BOWS AND FIREARMS NEAR BUILDINGS, ACCORDING TO AN ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE VILLAGE WEBSITE WRITTEN BY VILLAGE ATTORNEY ANTHONY GUARDINO.NEARLY HALF A MILLION FIREARMS DEER HUNTERS ARE PREPARING FOR THE FIREARMS DEER SEASON THAT OPENS SATURDAY, NOV. 7, AND OFFERS OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND TIME OUTDOORS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY, FIND ADVENTURE OUTDOORS AND PUT VENISON IN THE FREEZER.

WE ALL (GUN OWNERS, THAT IS) SEEM TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE. THAT FIREARM, BE IT PISTOL, RIFLE, OR SHOTGUN, WHICH JUST PLAIN, “AIN’T FOR SALE!” THE SENTIMENTAL FIREARM ISN’T NECESSARILY A VALUABLE FIREARM.

AT 6-FOOT-2, 140 POUNDS, I MAY BE TOO SCRAWNY TO BE A POLICE OFFICER. IT IS A GOOD THING, TOO, BECAUSE I MADE A MESS OF THE HARFORD COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE’S VIRTUAL TRAINING LAST MONTH AND — IF I DID NOT ALREADY — SERIOUSLY DOUBT MY QUALIFICATION TO ENFORCE LAWS, DIGITAL OR REAL. THIS IS AN ACCOUNT OF THE EXPERIENCE, IN WHICH I WAS LIKELY KILLED MORE THAN ONCE.

NAT’L – TRAINING – Is Your Security Guard Good Enough? Why Many Protection Agents Need More Training

WHAT MAKES A QUALITY SECURITY GUARD? WHAT SKILLS AND TRAITS EMBODY SOMEONE THAT YOU WOULD WANT TO ENTRUST WITH YOUR LIFE OR THE LIVES OF YOUR FAMILY? MOST FAIL TO REALIZE THAT SO MUCH MORE GOES INTO THE MAKING OF A TRUE PROFESSIONAL PROTECTION AGENT THAN JUST AN INTIMIDATING LOOK AND A GUN. THERE IS CERTAINLY MORE TO IT THAN THE MINIMUM STANDARDS REQUIRED FOR LICENSURE. IN EVERY STATE, THE REQUIREMENTS TO BE LICENSED AS A BODYGUARD FALL SHORT. IN TEXAS, FOR EXAMPLE, YOU ONLY NEED TO COMPLETE A 48-HOUR CLASS TO BE AN ARMED SECURITY GUARD. TO BECOME A LICENSED PERSONAL PROTECTION OFFICER (BODYGUARD) ONLY REQUIRES AN ADDITIONAL 16 HOURS OF TRAINING, ALL OF WHICH IS CONDUCTED IN A CLASSROOM.

AR – TRAINING – Mastering the Arkansas Enhanced CHCL Qualification

THERE ARE TWO LEVELS OF ARKANSAS CONCEALED HANDGUN CARRY LICENSES, AS THEY ARE CALLED IN ARKANSAS. THE BASIC LICENSE DOESN’T HAVE MUCH OF A PROFICIENCY REQUIREMENT. THE STUDENT JUST HAS TO SHOW THAT THEY ARE SAFE WITH A FIREARM, NOT REALLY ANY ACTUAL PROFICIENCY. FOR THE ENHANCED LICENSE, THERE IS AN ACTUAL QUALIFICATION STANDARD. IT IS STILL FAIRLY BASIC, AND GIVEN ANY DECENT SKILL LEVEL, IT SHOULD BE AN EASY STANDARD TO MEET. THIS HAPPENS TO BE EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY QUALIFICATION WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE SCORING.

TICKER 2) AT A GRASSY OPEN-AIR SHOOTING RANGE OUTSIDE BANGKOK, SUTIPATT SUDHISANRONAKORN AND APICHAI KARNJANAKANTIKA ARE ABOUT TO STORM AN IMAGINARY TERRORIST STRONGHOLD.
