    Supreme Court Spanks New York, Now What? | SOTG 1144

    The Supreme Court stuck down a New York law requiring citizens to demonstrate cause when they begged their slave masters for permission to carry a gun outside of their homes. What did the judges who read the Constitution have to say? What did the emotionally driven communists on the Court have to say? 
    During our Duracoat Finished Firearms segment we talk about Dad’s and Grandpa’s guns. Do you have a record of them? What stories do they tell? Also, for our Brownells Bullet Points we will consider what one state is doing to help its people be better prepared.
    Are you ready to be dangerous on demand? Could you save a person from a wild animal attack? A man in South Carolina was just killed by an alligator and the witnesses were helpless and unable to save him.

    From www.cbsnews.com:
    The Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a New York law that placed strict restrictions on carrying concealed firearms in public for self defense, finding its requirement that applicants seeking a concealed carry license demonstrate a special need for self-defense is unconstitutional.
    In a 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court reversed a lower court decision upholding New York's 108-year-old law limiting who can obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun in public. Proponents of the measure warned that a ruling from the high court invalidating it could threaten gun restrictions in several states and lead to more firearms on city streets.

    Disarmed by Lies & Uvalde PD Lawyers Up | SOTG 1143

    The cowardice, ineptitude, and potential corruption exhibited by the agents of the state in Uvalde, Texas is so embarrassing and damning that they have lawyered up in an attempt to keep the peasants from finding out just how bad the real story of their failure is. 
    During our Duracoat Finished Firearm segment, Professor Paul will consider garage sale guns, the good, the bad, and the ugly. For our Brownells Bullet Points, we talk about in stock items that you might want to pick up before they are gone. 
    Also, does your granny have a gat? A 90 year old woman in Tennessee was attacked by a bear while she sat on her front porch. Is there a good solution for arming our grandmas? We will consider that topic during our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters.

    Some of the records relating to the Robb Elementary School shooting could be “highly embarrassing,” involve “emotional/mental distress,” and are “not of legitimate concern to the public,” the lawyers argued.
    The City of Uvalde and its police department are working with a private law firm to prevent the release of nearly any record related to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in which 19 children and two teachers died, according to a letter obtained by Motherboard in response to a series of public information requests we made. The public records Uvalde is trying to suppress include body camera footage, photos, 911 calls, emails, text messages, criminal records, and more.

    Indiana State Police reports it's currently providing legal updates to make sure troopers know what to expect when the new "Constitutional Carry" law goes into effect. Permitless carry will allow Hoosiers to carry a handgun without a license and limit what police officers can ask when they see a gun.
    "It's very limiting. It's very limiting in what we're going to be able to do," said ISP Superintendent Doug Carter.
    Carter told lawmakers he was against the law before they passed it. One of his concerns: Officers won't be able to tell a good guy with a gun from a bad guy.

    In a week marked by gas prices surpassing $5 per gallon and inflation reaching new highs, the stock market saw its worst returns since January.
    After the dust settled, the Dow Jones Industrial Average had fallen 2.73%, the Nasdaq had fallen 3.52%, and the S&P 500 had fallen 2.91%.
    On Thursday morning, GasBuddy announced that the national average price of gasoline hit $5 per gallon. Days earlier, gas prices were $4.82 per gallon — more than double the $2.39 average when President Joe Biden entered the Oval Office at the beginning of last year.

    Democrats will Burn the Constitution to Disarm You | SOTG 1141

    The unhinged criminals in Washington DC have made it plain that they stop at nothing, to include ignoring the US Constitution and the Courts, in order to disarm the lawful-abiding. One political criminal went so far as to refer to Constitutional Rights as “bullsh*t”.
    During our SOTG Homeroom, we have yet one more example as to why it is critical for responsible adults to be armed to defend children from harm, even the harm caused by animal attacks.
    Professor Paul has put a new Duracoat finish on his PSL-54. Also, we will consider what you should be looking to purchase before the criminals in DC push people back into panic buy mode.

    A cougar attacked a 9-year-old girl on the morning of Saturday, May 28. Lily Kryzhanivskyy was playing outside at a camp near Fruitland, Washington with two friends when the cougar attacked. Kryzhanivskyy tried to defend herself while her friends ran to get adults to help, according to the Associated Press.
    The adults rushed to help the young girl and found her covered in blood. She was quickly airlifted to a hospital to receive treatment. According to a GoFundMe set up by the victim’s family to help cover medical expenses, Kryzhanivskyy underwent several hours of surgery for injuries to her upper body and face and went into a coma following the attack. On May 30, Alex Mantsevich, the organizer of the fundraiser, posted an update on Kryzhanivskyy’s condition.

    Congressman Mondaire Jones (D-NY) warned law-abiding gun owners that Democrats will do everything in their power to ensure AR-15s and similar types of firearms are confiscated during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday.
    The hearing was to consider H.R. 7910, the "Protecting Our Kids Act," which would raise the legal age to purchase "certain semiautomatic centerfire rifles or semiautomatic centerfire shotguns" from 18 to 21 with "exceptions." The bill will also "modernize the prohibition on untraceable firearms [and] encourage the safe storage of firearms."

    Defend Yourself: No One is Coming | SOTG 1140

    Be prepared to defend yourself, no one is coming to save you. We don’t know how much clearer we can make that statement.  During our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters we examine how one West Virginia mom stopped a convicted felon from potentially murdering dozens of people. 
    During our Duracoat Finished Firearm segment, Professor Paul asks for your suggestions to refinish the VP12 AK shotgun. We have a Brownells Bullet Points feature and we will discuss the semi-automatic shotgun and how to get the most out of one.
    Yes, Paul will address the blatant and disgusting cowardice that transpired in Uvalde, Texas last week. A Texas police officer went on television to try and explain away their despicable behavior.  We are not buying what they are selling.

    In the wake of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, on Tuesday, state law enforcement has been receiving widespread criticism as the public learns more about what officers did and did not do to end the active shooter situation.
    While Department of Public Safety officials initially said the gunman, Salvador Ramos, was confronted by an armed officer outside the school, those same authorities denied that version of events at a press conference Thursday. The Wall Street Journal reported that the gunman fired shots for 12 minutes after crashing his truck outside the school before walking in “unobstructed.” Police arrived on scene four minutes later “and exchanged gunfire with Ramos, who locked himself in a fourth-grade classroom.”

    A day after a Kingman [Arizona] school was placed on lockdown following an unconfirmed report of a man with a firearm in the vicinity, Bullhead City police were notified by two callers of a man walking with a rifle in the area of several Bullhead City schools.
    It turns out that Friday’s calls apparently were in reference to a man on Hancock Road with a walking stick, not a firearm.
    “The Bullhead City Police Department received two separate calls reporting a man walking in the area of Hancock Road armed with a rifle,” Emily Fromelt, the BCPD’s public information officer, said.

    It seems like every spring here in Alaska, we are faced with stark reminders of how dangerous bears can be. Especially in the spring, after a winter of not really having to worry about it, we can get really complacent. It’s been a somewhat early spring here this year, and already there have been at least two confirmed maulings by either grizzlies or brown bears.
    Even though I am in bear country frequently, and have had several close encounters, I also get complacent, because I know the chances are slim that I’ll be attacked when I’m unprepared. The unfortunate fact about bear attacks though, is that if we knew they were going to happen, they wouldn’t.

Like it

I do like the the new format with the daily shows, as opposed to the old format. as far as the political aspects go, we have to get involved. These "rants" go to show the mindset of the people who are the type of people who are trying to destroy us. Paul and Jarrad are just trying lo let us know the mindset of these people. Unfortunately we can't relax or take any thing for granted.

PCMugzie ,

Part of My Weekly Podcast Line-Up

As a female who loves firearms..this podcast is always at the top of my listening list. Professor Paul, Jarrad and Zach put an obvious amount of effort into each podcast. As a new gun owner you will walk away from each podcast with a piece of knowledge from those with years of experience. Listen. Learn. Forever be a #studentofthegun.

talon937 ,

too little content in waaay too much time

Way too much self promotion of marginal products (Hi-Point firearms, RATS TQ, etc.) Poorly planned and question the preparation of the hosts. Oh and the whole Nicholas Orr thing was figured out right from the start (it's Paul.)
