This week I talk about why gun control doesn’t work.
In the wake of the Vegas shooting gun control is being talked about again. Let’s define gun control real fast.
Gun control (or firearms regulation) is the set of laws or policies that regulate the manufacture, sale, transfer, possession, modification, or use of firearms by civilians.
Most countries have a restrictive firearm guiding policy, with only a few legislations being categorized as permissive. Jurisdictions that regulate access to firearms typically restrict access to only certain categories of firearms and then to restrict the categories of persons who will be granted a firearms license to have access to a firearm.
And Let’s see what the Second Amendment has to say about it.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
I go into several of the reason why gun control doesn’t work. Unless you have magical powers to make all the guns vanish and gun powder no longer work.
How To Pick Survival Guns For An Apocalypse | episode 121
In this podcast, Mike and I talk about How To Pick Survival Guns For An Apocalypse. What guns would we both pick for a few different apocalypses? We begin with a general SHTF. Basically, the best survival guns that will work for any situation. There is no ultimate survival gun for every situation. We pick several guns to accomplish different goals.
After we take care of the normal Survival Guns For An Apocalypse we dig into zombie apocalypse a little. What survival guns would differ from one SHTF to another? What is my top pick for a zombie gun?
We only briefly touch on outlandish weapons. I talk about how great a rail gun could be for a zombie apocalypse. If one was built light enough with enough power to be useful. The problem with many of the homemade railguns is the trade off between the stopping power of the projectile and the battery weight to power it. If that ratio gets perfected railguns make great Survival Guns For An Apocalypse.
Mike dispels the myth that a crossbow makes a great weapon against zombies. Since you have to reclaim your spent bolts makes it, not a great weapon.
Today I have not one but two youtube videos for you. You get a DIY build video on How To Build A DIY Ballistics Plate Body Armor and then the test shooting of that DIY ballistics plate.
I really want a real body armor plate. I also want to shoot the hell out of one. There in lies my problem. If I had a ballistics plate, like the great guys at AR500 (hint hint) I would want it for a SHTF scenario. But I also want to try to destroy one as well.
DIY 2 Survive!
My solution is to build and show you How To Build A DIY Ballistics Plate Body Armor. Will it be as good as a professionally made one? Nope. Will it stop a bullet? Hell yes, it will! I don’t recommend you building one of these and going out to fight ISIS. In a SHTF I would wear one of my DIY ballistic plates over wearing nothing.
The cost for this was around $30. I used a steel I-beam piece, a ceramic floor tile, duck tape and a can of plastidip. This thing is heavy as shit. And tough as a hell.
Today the show is all about the second amendment. With the exceptions due to the power outage that occurred while recording. We talk about why so many people are trying to ban weapons. How is all boils down to fear and ignorance. Mankind has always feared what he does not understand. If you listen to anti gun liberals long enough you will realize they are completely ignorant of firearms and the second amendment. They have some pretty crazy notions on firearms. Ghost guns anyone?
We talk about how the second amendment and exercising your right to keep and bear arms empowers you. It forces you to take responsibility for your own safety. It forces to to become more responsible while carrying a weapon. You have to both avoid trouble but also be the one there when it is needed.
The police can not protect you all the time. In the best of cases getting to you in time is hard. If there is a disaster, like a riot, then help may not come. During the L.A riots the Korean shop owners with AK47’s were the ones not looted. They used their second amendment right to protect their livelihoods.
