The Tactical Professor Claude Werner on Negative Outcomes, Standards, and Gun Culture 3.0

Gun Culture 2.0

Although I have never met him in person, I have long appreciated the work of Claude Werner, and not just because we are both professors (Werner being known as The Tactical Professor).

Owing to his “heady” approach to gun education and training (e.g., his “Mind Map” captured below), Werner addresses the mental game of personal protection more than many, hence the subtitle of his blog: “more than weapons manipulation.” I like that.

Werner’s work on negative outcomes — especially what he calls “serious mistakes” — is extremely important for anyone who lives with or around guns to consider. These include:

  • Shooting yourself
  • Shooting someone you shouldn’t have, either intentionally or unintentionally
  • Getting needlessly arrested
  • Getting shot by police officers responding to a call for help
  • Leaving guns where unauthorized persons can access them, resulting in tragedies
  • Frightening innocent people around you

Carry Is Breaking Out All Over

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

State legislatures from coast to coast are working to crack concealed-carry regulations and restore freedom to their citizens.

While pro-Second Amendment legislation like National Reciprocity and the Hearing Protection Act weave their slow, methodical course through Congress—countered at every turn by gun control Democrats and their surrogates in the media—state legislatures around the country are working to repeal gun control and to expand the exercise of our Second Amendment-protected rights via pro-self-defense legislation.

GOA Successfully Working to Block Possible Attacks on Hunters

A week ago, the Senate HELP Committee — seriously, that’s its real acronym:  HELP! — voted out legislation which would revamp regulation of over-the-counter hearing aids.

The legislation is crafted by Senator Elizabeth Warren.

In the pro-gun House, representatives recognized that similar legislation might have ramifications for hunting-related listening…

Give Me Liberty

H/T Bearing Arms.

Texas isn’t the only place robbers get shot and killed it happens in Indiana also.

On Sunday, an armed robber in Evansville, Indiana learned the hard way that more homeowners are buying guns for home security.

According to police, officers were dispatched to a home in the 1100 block of Washington Avenue shortly before 4 a.m. on a report of shots fired. As they approached the residence, they were flagged down by an individual who informed them that the suspect of a home invasion had been shot and fled the scene on foot.

Officers canvassed the area and found Malcolm Payton, 25, in the 1100 block of Adams Avenue suffering from an obvious gunshot wound. Police immediately began to administer first aid to the suspect and found a gun on the ground underneath him in the process.

Sen. Gerald Allen, a Republican sponsor of the bill, blasted what he perceived as a…

UK Miffed, Over US Blabber Mouthing

Brittius

Regarding the Manchester suicide bombing incident, news in the US had revealed sensitive information confidential to the investigation. The information had been passed along and shared in Good Faith. Someone, for whatever reason, leaked it to the media. A discussion here, at Ace Global News, concluded that it was in very poor taste to divulge any information while an investigation was actively being worked, and the aftermath could result in UK intelligence services, severing ties and halting all information and data going from the UK to the US intelligence services, that over the course of time has proven itself immature.

To better explain, if you were inside of someone’s home and there was a heated argument between husband and wife, you would not run up and down the street blabbing to everyone walking on the sidewalk or in front of their homes, what was going on with a play-by-play of…
