Armed American Radio (AAR) is the official radio program of the United States Concealed Carry Association
In the AAR Archives, the radio broadcasts are a little confusing. The radio bar looks to be associated with the date BELOW it when actually the correct date is above, but separated by a line. This is not an earth shaking observation–just a little confusing.
Hey, great looking website! One thing I might mention is the scrolling sponsors image… Why? If I see the sponsors, I would like to be able to click on the image to go check them out, not have to google it. Kinda like it used to be, with the links along the side so you can quickly navigate to them without leaving AAR. Besides that minor annoyance it looks good. Just my .02
Hey, Guys! Supposed to get snow in Vermont tonight.
On the AAR Sponsor page, I don’t think Ruger needs that second ‘g’ in their name. Just saying.

MY JOURNEY AS A COMBAT MEDIC:
From Desert Storm to Operation Enduring Freedom
By Patrick Thibeault
US Army Medical Sergeant (Ret) & Family Nurse Practitioner
Combat Medics are the unsung heroes of war. Hollywood prefers to focus on the glamour of Special Operations units or the spectacle of major battles. Combat Medics seldom make the headlines. Yet without them, hundreds of thousands of soldiers and innocent civilians alike would die on the battlefield, never again to see their friends and families and country.
My Journey as a Combat Medic: From Desert Storm to Operation Enduring Freedom (IBJ Book Publishing, $17.00, October 2011) by Patrick Thibeault offers a compelling, insider’s account of what it is like to be a Combat Medic in time of war. Thibeault narrates the harrowing moments Combat Medics endure as they courageously rush into danger to save wounded soldiers and civilians, their tender compassion in the face of brutality and violence, and their unswerving dedication to making sure they accomplish their mission and take care of the wounded.
“There is no job like that of an Army medic,” says Thibeault “You will travel to places and see things that others can only dream about. It is not an easy job, but it is a rewarding one. The rewards are not badges, ribbons, or bonus money; the rewards come from the good feeling you get from healing people. You will learn new skills on the battlefield that doctors are not taught in medical school yet. You will experience the highs when you save a live. You will experience the lowest of lows when someone dies on you.”
Among the many topics Thibeault can discuss include:
· His experiences working in Task Force Phoenix helping to train a deployable Afghan army that will take over as American troops withdraw.
· Discover what it takes to be a top-notch Combat Medic. The training is long and rigorous. The Combat Medic must constantly prepare for the worst. To do so, he or she must not only know what to do in the heat of battlefield but also stay mentally and physically fit on and off the battlefield.
· Advice for those who aspire to become Combat Medics themselves one day.
· The truth about Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) and how it affects veterans in particular. Learn why conventional treatments for it don’t always work for those subjected too long to the stresses of the battlefield.
· The unique bonds infantry and communication soldiers forge with combat medics.
· Growing up as a Army brat travelling around the world during the Cold War era.
“Bin Laden is dead, Al Qaeda is in shambles, and the Taliban is weak, but we still have American fighting soldiers in Afghanistan ,” says Thibeault, who spent one year in Afghanistan . “The nation of Afghanistan needs infrastructure so people can have jobs and provide for their families. The Taliban took power in the first place because of the instability in Afghanistan . We want to end the war successfully. Ultimately the people of Afghanistan have to take the lead in this; otherwise there is no victory, regardless of definition. Victory in Afghanistan to me would mean a stable government, even with corruption that comes with it. Our enemies have been defeated but is it our job to build this nation?”
Amid the violence of war and the untold suffering it leaves in its wake, the Combat Medic’s humanity and compassion emerges as a bright beacon of hope. My Journey as a Combat Medic: from Desert Storm to Operation Enduring Freedom is a fascinating read that will entertain as well as educate readers about a facet of war that is far too often overlooked.

Bone Head of the week page needs updating!
Otherwise the new website looks great.
Last Sundays show was fantastic. I’m only able to listen to the podcasts, though. One thing I wish you could do is to “normalize” the volume levels within the podcast. It’s pain to keep juggling the volume control, when different people are talking. Sometimes one guest is hard to hear, so you turn the volume up, then the next starts speaking, and it blows your head off!
Keep up the good work!!
Had an issue with I-tunes and the pod cast got delete when I went to search for the show I could not find it. Eventually found it but it is listed with the name ‘NO Title’. Just thought you might want to get it fixed.
I agree with the issue of volume levels. They are all over the place. Don’t have that issue with other podcasts. Would be nice to fix.
Did you get my mag index?? Works great for me!
What’s the website for the Navy Seal info on what to do after you shoot? I am getting Alan Korwin’s book also “After You Shoot, Your Gun’s Hot But The Perp is Not”.
Is there a place for finding links to stuff talked about on the show (news story, websites etc)? Right now I’m looking for the Gunsmoke episode information. But also some older stuff, like the women who was getting her permit in DC. Maybe it can be added to the show notes?
Update, I went back and listed to the podcast and it was The Rifleman, which why I having problems finding it. It looks like the show has been picked up my Hulu+ which may explain why its being pulled from the free sites on the web, I also looked at Netflix and they only carry limited episodes and “The Anvil Chorus” is not included in the show summary for Season 5, episode 12.
I own an android phone and since the website has been updated, every time I go to the site on my phones web browser and then exit it, it restarts my phones operating system.
I was trying to listen to the podcast of 11/27/11 broadcast. Got about 20 min into hour 1 and it froze up. Retried and it froze up and would not play at all. Gave up and went to Hour 2. Hour 2 would not start at all. Will try again next week.

I am wondering what happened to your radio show? It was on channel 700 AM radio on Sunday afternoons at 1300 hrs. Ican’t find your show. What did they do with it?
I am interested in the possibility of advertising my line of products on your radio show. You can see my product line on the web site listed above. I have some new additons to the line that will be intoduced within a few weeks. I would be glade to send you some samples. Looking forward to hearing from you. Rich
Hi Mark, At our Christmas party yesterday I had great dialog with a local state trooper. He is very pro-gun and a great guy. We shared info about what we carry and found we both carry Kimbers. He hadn’t heard of AAR or USCCA so I was able to give him the last 2 issues of the C.C. magizine. He does listen to “Gun Talk” and we talked about Larry Yatch, Massad Ayoob, Rob Pincus, and many more. I’m pretty sure he will be signing up. I also explained “The Shield” and he was excited. It’s great to see good L.E.O.s on our side. Just wanted to pass it on. Steve in Oregon
Read this…we need to do something…I am just sick about this and I want to change this country.

It seems with the U.S. becoming more violent and gun rights being taken away that America is seeing a depletion in their police forces. See the link below:
The criminals are now targeting these cities and they are and have always targeted the retail stores, government centers, and even military bases that post “No guns on these premises” signs.
I just thought of this.
Do you think that the Zuccotti folks will usher in the Zombie Apocalypse? There has been reports of Tuberculosis, AIDS, Drug Abuse etc. Just throw in a rabid raccoon or two and you have…
Your sponsor link is messed up!!!
The link on your home page is all wrong. Put it off to the side or scroll them slow in the box you have. Next. make each a live link to a new window for that sponsor. Now after going to a second page on your site to find the sponsor links, You must scroll down and look through the list to find them once more (Bad form). When your fans (This includes me) click on the link for a sponsor it should open a new window for that sponsor Not take us away from the AAR site.
Sorry to pick so hard on this. I do it because I care. I am a loyal fan of the show and a member of our beloved USCCA.
This small change should make happier sponsors and visitors to your site.
Thanks for listening and I hope you consider these actions. My wife
does marketing and consulting for a living in the Atl. area so this advise comes from her also. You can see some of her work at Arlishomeservices.com and Kasemanagement.com If you are interested in further hints you can contact her at email@example.com Her name is Tess.
The new web does not work my black berry. I have to down to listen to
Programs because no stations in central MS. I’ll give a try next week if no better I’ll move on to another Program
Great show tonite boss!!
Will put in a plug for you on our Iowa forum at IowaCarry.Org
Mark, I listen to your show (my show) on internet radio via “Droid Phone” or computer at home every Sunday.. It is important to keep bars/service when listening. Your message is one every American needs to hear. When is AAR coming the middle Tennessee area? I live near Ft Campbell Army base(home of the 101 Airborne). I know there is a listening base and two stations that would fit your format. Is anything in the works? Love our show Mark…and yes Mark, I consider it my show for several reasons…..Thanks!!!! From: Robin,who lives down in a hollow in Tennessee
Chicago’s “no guns” policy is allowing this to happen… No more cell phone orders from restaurants due to delivery robbery. They bring it on themselves. Great job Mr. Mayor!!
Why do the new podcast show a title of “No Title” instead of Armed American Radio?
I subscribe to the podcast a while ago on my iPad and it is showing the title as “Armed American Radio”.
I am all for the second amendment but there is something that bothers me about HR 822.
If it happened in Illinois it could happen in your state too, we need federal legislation on the second amendment that forces all 50 states to abide by the second amendment. This is one nation (not the United States and Chicago) under God, it is indivisible with liberty and justice for all no matter where we travel in our nation whether it be New York or Illinois. The federal government has to rule for all 50 states we have The Constitution Of The United States, not The Constitution Of The United States and Illinois if the Feds leave the 2nd amendment up to the states to decide then they are same as saying 2nd amendment is not a Constitutional Right it becomes State Rights!
In other words if the Feds rule with wording like “States that allow” They are saying it’s not a constitutional right, they are leaving it up to the state to allow it or not to allow it. This takes it away from the Constitution. I just can’t preach this enough The Feds have to rule for all 50 states or the 2nd amendment is gone! Think about this it’s just Illinois now but how long before New York goes anti carry then another state and another and there will be no Constitution to run too because it’s up to the states.
A Constitutional right is not up to the states, it is up to the federal government to mandate that ALL states abide.
Yay! Antonio R. Ruiz (ARR)

Hello Mark and Sean,
Please do all of us a favor and do not turn up the volume of the bumper music, especially the Van Halen, Panama song! Don’t get me wrong, I use to crank it up on the stereo in the car and at home when no one else was around. But I’m getting older now and am getting tone deaf in my right ear, ( a hereditary thing). And even doubling up on the hearing protection when shooting can’t save it. So when I’m out running and listening to the podcasts, I have to very diligent to turn down the ipod volume when I think the commercials are over and the bumper music is coming. Sometimes I;m not quick enough, and man does it hurt! So please, help all of the more senior listeners.

I had to walk out. I could not take anymore of the hypocrisy. This film festival has become very left wing, activist and political. What is distressing is that the winning films reveal the mindset of the liberal left.
The “Story of Broke” makes the assumption that everyone knows that oil companies are evil and that good can come from the government distributing your tax dollars properly. The overall winner, “Into Eternity”….let’s see?! It takes 100,000 years for nuclear waste to decompose and what will happen when 50,000 or 80,000 years from now, unsuspecting archeologists stumble upon a nuclear waste facility? Gasp! Horrors! As if we don’t have enough to concern us. What is going to happen to these poor people?! Nuclear is “Bad”! I walked out. Bay Area liberals are over-the-top wacked out! I mean, they drive up in their Bentleys and Range Rovers to get together and decide what is correct for everyone but themselves. The Obama mentality! Of course, we do not have a “right” to self-defense either! Guns kill people, don’t they! That is a given. Actually, cell phones kill people, too!! Excuse me but I’ve had it with liberal wack job hypocrites!
Judge for yourselves:
Your site and many others refer people to facebook and/or other social sites to participate , while I , like many others want tp participate but don’t patronize these ” social ” sites . Isn’t there another way ?
Well, it’s ’bout time people! I’m on board with this 100%….after all, I’m a 6th generation patriot. Johanne Jacob Follmer was a Colonel in George Washington’s Army at Valley Forge and he was one of the many men who did not desert. After the war, he elected to the First Assembly and later died as a Senator in 1803 and is buried at the Follmer Lutheran Church in Milton, Pennsylvania. He met Washington in Philidelphia in 1756 and they became great friends! He also knew Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, etc. This is all from my 5th gr. aunts diary. There’s alot more, just not enough room for all here! Bottom line; We need to get back to what our Founding Fathers intended for us through the Constitution and we need to straighten out all of our institutions of learning by getting rid of all of the damned socialists and liberals who have ruined the minds of so many Americans and replace them with people who would teach the truth about our nation and it’s true history. We need to RESTORE OUR REPUBLIC AND WE NEED TO DO IT NOW.
Is there a legal way to nail criminals for Obama, hired to do Obama’s bidding, such as Eric Holder and his illegal lawyers, whose criminal actions and criminal behavior regularly scrapes the bottom of hell, when they all plead the fifth?

Today’s Article in St.LouisToday.com website
Below is an e-mail that I just received. I think it will be of interest and possibly another “bone head” award for New York. Pick a recipient, the mayor, police commissioner, TSA. The field is wide open.
Tuesday, January 24, 2012
I have never been a fan of the North East Coast, other than to recognize and appreciate all the revolutionary history that occurred there.
It boggles my mind that some of the same locations that forged the ideals and bravery of our Founding Fathers and played such pivotal roles in the birth of our great country, have since sunk to such despicable levels of oppression.
New York City is one of those locations.
I have heard of a number of very disturbing situations coming out of New York City regarding the loss of liberty over gun related issues, but had not made any formal stand on any of the issues because I did not personally know the people involved.
Last week I received a letter from a person I do know and also received an unrelated news article that moves me to tell you to stay clear of New York City and if possible, do not spend another penny on anything coming out of New York City. If every gun owner did so, it would send the proper message to New York City officials.
Here is the letter from Mark Meckler, Co-Founder of Tea Party Patriots …
On December 15, 2011 at approximately 5:15 a.m., I was at LaGuardia International airport preparing to check in for a flight out of the city. During a routine check-in, I requested a firearms declaration form from the ticket agent. It was my intent to declare and check my unloaded firearm.
I purchased this firearm legally, and I have a valid concealed carry permit for it issued in California. The unloaded gun was locked inside a TSA-approved travel case, and the case was locked inside my checked luggage. I carry the firearm for my personal safety, having received numerous threats due to my role in the Tea Party Patriots. I have checked this firearm at airports dozens of times before, all across the country.
As I traveled through LaGuardia that morning, I passed TSA signs telling me I had the right to check this unloaded firearm in my luggage, and that I am required by law to declare the firearm to the ticketing agent. This is exactly what I did.
The ticketing agent provided me with the declaration form, and I signed it and returned it to her. She advised me that she would need to call Port Authority police to inspect. This is not unusual when traveling with a firearm. Procedures vary from airport to airport, from airline to airline, and even from day to day, and as a law-abiding citizen, I have always been happy to cooperate.
Unfortunately, that day, I didn’t realize that I was about to cross paths with New York City’s anti-Second Amendment stance. Upon showing my case and the weapon to the officer who arrived on the scene, and after a few brief questions, she advised me that she was placing me under arrest for violating New York City’s firearms laws.
To say that I was stunned would be an understatement. I am from a law enforcement family. My mother is a retired correctional officer, and I have spent my life around folks from the law enforcement community. I have always considered myself a law-abiding citizen. I have never been arrested before. I have never been in police custody. I can never say those things again. On December 15th, 2011, I was arrested, handcuffed at the ticket counter, and taken to a waiting squad car for transport to the Port Authority Police station at LaGuardia.
I was subsequently transferred, in handcuffs, to the Queens Central booking facility in New York City. I was charged with felony possession of a firearm with intent to do harm. I spent the day in Queens…in jail.
It was a nightmare that I can scarcely describe to you. Until you have felt the handcuffs on your wrists, and until you have heard that cell door close behind you, it is impossible to understand what it means to actually lose your liberty. And since that day, my liberty has been at stake, and because of that threat, based upon the advice of counsel, I’ve been unable to publicly speak about this case. Today the silence ends.
I am pleased to announce that the criminal case against me has been dropped. Although I was originally charged with a violent felony, the case against me was resolved with a plea to “disorderly conduct. ” Disorderly Conduct is not a felony or a misdemeanor, or even a crime. The facts underlying my plea are that I declared a legally purchased, properly licensed and unloaded firearm at an airport counter. Apparently, much to my surprise, in New York City, it is considered “disorderly conduct” to exercise your constitutionally guaranteed, Second Amendment rights.
Strangely, now that the case against me is over, the authorities refuse to return my firearm. There is no law that allows them to confiscate a weapon in this manner. They simply say “no” when you ask for your weapon back. This is apparently their “policy.” This is apparently done regularly in New York. This is government robbery. Not only is New York City anti-Second Amendment rights, but they are depriving citizens of their legally owned property. My lawyer has advised me that I can attempt to pursue the return of my firearm, but that to do so would cost me more than the firearm is worth. I am not alone in facing this tyranny. It has happened to hundreds of people in the New York metro area. My lawyer, Brian Stapleton, has handled over 400 of these cases himself, so he is an expert on the subject.
While the end of this case is the end of a horrible nightmare for my family and I, it is not the end of this fight. It is just the beginning. Since the original incident, I have received more emails, phone calls, texts and tweets of support than you can possibly imagine. To those people, I want to say heart-felt thanks on behalf of my entire family. We have come to know that we are not alone in this particular fight. Apparently, this happens to hundreds of people per year in New York City. And New York City is not alone in its attack on our rights. This sort of Constitutional abuse, Second Amendment and otherwise, is taking place all over the nation. And we as citizens must stand against it. We must protect our rights, or we will lose them.
Many of you know me as someone who is willing to stand and fight for self-governance in this country. I’m no politician, and I’m not from a powerful or connected family. I’m an average American citizen. And I stand shoulder to shoulder with millions of other Americans who, despite enormous obstacles, and despite the politicians and ruling elite who oppose us, intend to return this country to the bounds of the United States Constitution.
The politicians and ruling elite will try, but we must not let them label us Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal. We cannot let them make us fight against each other. Too much is at stake. We the People are losing our sovereignty to the government. We the People, must stand and fight for our inalienable rights.
I’m not alone in this fight. There are so many laws, that no one can possibly know or understand them. We are all affected. From the inner city to the farm, from the heartland of America to the coasts, people are under pressure from a government that no longer serves them. From my home in California, to the farmland of Kansas… from the small towns of South Carolina to the metropolis of New York, every year the legislatures pass thousands of laws and regulations that do not serve the people.
The legislators don’t read the bills they pass, and even if they did, they couldn’t understand them. Our criminal justice system is terribly broken, and no longer serves the people and the communities it was intended to serve. Our regulatory system is broken; small businesses and the communities that rely on them crushed under the weight of unnecessary regulation.
We are, step by step, destroying the heart of America. And we are doing so because we are not governing ourselves according to the Constitution. It’s up to us…the People.
It’s time to stand for self-governance. It is time to stand for the plain meaning of the Constitution. Every word of the Constitution is important, and we must fight for them all. We must fight for every inch of this country, from the inner city to the smallest rural town. We are, all of us, first and foremost, American citizens. We’ve always governed ourselves…and we always intend to. And we’ve always been willing to stand when freedom is at stake. It is time to stand…time for all of us, every race, every religion, every gender, every American to stand up and fight for liberty and take responsibility for governing ourselves.
No one should ever have to go through what my family has been through, simply for exercising a fundamental right, specifically enumerated in the United States Constitution. I am committed to making sure no one does. And I’m willing to work with anyone…anyone, who agrees that it’s time for the people to govern themselves once again.
Will we as citizens fight for our inalienable right to govern ourselves, or will we quietly allow ourselves to be “governed” into submission by a ruling elite, disconnected from our citizens and our communities? Only history will tell, but I intend to fight.
And here is an unrelated, but equally distrubing news article about the oppressive mindset of New York City officials…
NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly told CBS in New York his department is looking to deploy Terahertz Imaging Detection scanners on the street in the war on “illegal guns.”
Kelly said the scanners would be used in “reasonably suspicious circumstances” and intended to cut down on the number of stop-and-frisks on the street. So called stop-and-frisks are considered a violation of the Fourth Amendment.
New York City is largely a Second Amendment free zone. The city’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has said that citizens “acting outside of any governmental military effort” should not be allowed to protect themselves with firearms.
“The NYPD and Department of Defense are working together testing Terahertz Imaging Detection, a new way to get concealed illegal weapons off the streets,” CBS reports. Terahertz Imaging Detection measures energy radiating from the body up to 16 feet away and can detect anything blocking it.
The ACLU and civil libertarians oppose the effort to use the technology on the street. “It’s worrisome. It implicates privacy, the right to walk down the street without being subjected to a virtual pat-down by the Police Department when you’re doing nothing wrong,” the NYCLU’s Donna Lieberman said.
In addition to violating the Fourth Amendment, the proposed technology would subject citizens to a documented health risk — the destruction of DNA.
Studies reveal that THz waves “unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication,” according to MIT’s Technology Review.
For more information, see this paper posted at the Cornell University Library.
If we are to believe CBS, most residents either are not concerned about the privacy aspects of the technology or think it is a reasonable trade-off to stop gun crime and terrorism.
CBS does not mention the ability of THz to destroy DNA. If they did, no doubt most people interviewed would oppose the new technology.
As the site of George Washington’s presidential inauguration and the first capital of United States, New York City was once a beacon of freedom and liberty.
The Rolling Stones sum up today’s New York City quite well in the lyrics to their hit, Shattered.
Mick Jagger sings, “Go ahead, bite the Big Apple, don’t mind the maggots…”
I suggest you stay out of New York City, you deserve better.

I hope this idea catches fire and you discuss it on your radio show:
Last August I did a spoof on National Night Out and held a National Night “In” at my house. The reason is at NNO the conceal and carry is an “off” limit subject even with the St. Paul Police Dept. I thought this was ridiculous and held a standing room only meeting at my house. Besides over 20 of my neighbors, I had a gun instructor, 2 police officers and the lawyer who helped write the permit to carry law for Minnesota. Because of popular demand I have another meeting scheduled for February 23rd at a conference room that seats 40. I hope others have National Night IN meetings just for this subject. It is a subject that is interesting to men and women. I inform people that it is mainly for women and seniors so they don’t have to feel so vulnerable in their homes, but many men show up also.
I really enjoy your show! I purchased the Rob Pincus 3 DVD set last year and have enjoyed it. I hear you advertising a DVD set now. Is this another set of different material on DVD’s? If it is, I will consider buying it. If not, I don’t want to purchase something I already have. Thanks in advance for your help.
get a load of these idiots and morons
I just Love Conservatives ! great show man
Just discovered AAR, looking forward to hearing it for the first time this weekend.
Got the TuneIn Radio Android App and found the local Tampa area station 860 WGUL under the “News” section, that AAR is on.
I want to thank you for your show and the information you and your guest provide. I am a resident of CA and posses CCW permits in Florida, Utah, Nevada and Minnesota. While outside of CA I am able to carry concealed in a number of reciprocating states. Being a resident of CA, I cannot carry, even open and unloaded. Based on the early release for prison inmates due to over crowing and transfer of State prisoner to the county due to State cost savings, I am very concerned.
You may be aware of the potential 2012 ballot measure to create a must issue requirement for California CCW permits. The petition to circulate a form for signatures has been approved and approximately 504,000 signatures are required to get the proposition on the 2012 ballot.
The following is from the CA State Government site: http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/ballot-measures/cleared-for-circulation.htm
NOTE: Approved measure for circulation are listed by date.
Concealed Firearms. Initiative Statute.
Summary Date: 12/14/11 | Circulation Deadline: 05/14/12 | Signatures Required: 504,760
Proponent: David John Clark firstname.lastname@example.org
Eliminates good cause and good moral character requirements for license to carry concealed firearms. Compels sheriffs and police chiefs to issue licenses to carry concealed firearms to any eligible applicant with no history of mental illness, substance abuse, or domestic violence, who is not currently under criminal investigation or indictment or currently subject of restraining order. Eliminates sheriffs’ and police chiefs’ option to require applicants complete up to 24 hours of firearms training, and prohibits them from imposing reasonable restrictions or conditions when issuing the firearms license. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Increased state and local expenditures of an unknown amount to process applications for concealed firearms licenses, which would be funded with revenues collected from license application fees.

You may also be aware that Front Sight has started to promote this with its membership as well.
I plan to help get signatures. Too bad they did not create a better name for the measure.
This is California and this may be the only hope of getting a must issue permit. Chances for success are small, but you cannot be successful unless you try.
This Summer I had the opportunity to entertain a British family to some trigger time in the high desert of Nevada at the edge of the Sierra Mountains. The two brothers were in their late 70′s and early 80′s. Both gun guys.
After we heated up some Nevada legal toys, me dressed in my British DPM Parka as a tribute to my guests, the men told me of just how restrictive England’s gun laws are. They told me to “Never let them take our rights away” It was a joy to put a smile on the faces of these gentlemen.
I enjoy your show. You do great work. I look forward to it every week.
Great show …useful information …posted a link back to you on the ‘Imperial Valley Rifle and Pistol Association’ website at http://ivrpa.net (Imperial Valley, California)
I just heard last weeks show via podcast and the discussion of armored police vehicles with video surveillance equipment parked in public places.
I would like to know that the responsible departments allow video recoding of their officers while conducting their duties in public. Some departments have proven down right hostile to fellow citizens recording officers while in public and on duty.
If the department is hostile toward private citizens video recording officers, while on duty and in public, than the discussion on the vans is a ‘non starter’.
I just listened to last weeks show via podcast and the story of armored police surveillance vehicles parking in public places.
My issues with this is whether the responsible department allows citizens to video record their officers while the officer is on duty and in a public place. Some police departments have been down right hostile to citizens with recording equipment.
If the answer to this question is no than the use of the vehicle should be a non-starter so that attention and energy can focus on changing the policy on recording officers.
Hey buddy it was great to see you I would love to do another show since I can tell you more not being in Law Enforcement any more.. hope to hear from you soon
