BREAKING :
ACCORDING TO GUN PROHIBITIONISTS, EUROPE IS MUCH SAFER THAN THE UNITED STATES, BECAUSE EUROPE HAS STRICTER GUN CONTROL. IN FACT, THE HISTORICAL RECORD SHOWS THAT EXCESSIVE GUN CONTROL (AS IN EUROPE) IS ABOUT A HUNDRED TIMES MORE DEADLY THAN "INSUFFICIENT" GUN CONTROL (AS, SUPPOSEDLY, IN THE U.S.). WHILE A LONE CRIMINAL WITH A GUN CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS, A CRIMINAL GOVERNMENT WITH A DISARMED POPULATION IS THE DEADLIEST THING ON EARTH, SAYS AUTHOR.POLICE ARE SEARCHING FOR SUSPECTS WHO STOLE NEARLY 40 GUNS FROM A RAPID CITY GUN SHOP.

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. In under two weeks, you can go from never having seen a gun to holding a State license saying that you are qualified to protect a client and everything that entails. Unfortunately, this training only serves as an introduction to a few broad topics without ever teaching, reinforcing, or testing real skills. I believe there are eight critical skills that every protection professional should possess. An officer must have a firm understanding of what is permissible by law especially as it pertains to use of force and firearms. Self-defense training must be ongoing for anyone in the protection industry. A quality training program will introduce and drill techniques for controlling or neutralizing an aggressor, but these techniques must be constantly practiced and maintained, or they are worthless. State required firearms training is equivalent to a license-to-carry class for a citizen, as is the test that provides a passing score with poor shooting skills. It is not even remotely adequate in preparing a protection officer to use a firearm in a real-world scenario. Training without stress-inducing, reality-based training means nothing. The first time that a bodyguard faces a stressful situation should not be during a real operation. A successful training program subjects the trainee to stressful, real-world scenarios in a controlled environment.  [full article]
