ALR033 – #StandWithCap

We're geeking out in this week's episode! When Massachusetts Atty. General Maura Healy thanked actor Chris Evans for his support for her authoritarian gun control expansion by using the hashtag #StandWithCap, it rubbed the wrong way those of us who grew up with the iconic Captain America of the comics. It's just another subtle way the left is undermining and usurping the traditions and imagery of American values to support big government. We'll talk about the parallels between the Civil War story line from the comics and the gun control debate with Brandon Warr of War Zone Media.

Brandon Warr of War Zone Media joins us to discuss the history of Captain America from the comics to the movies, the parallels between the Civil War story line and the gun control debate, and how Massachsetts AG Maura Healy's #StandWithCap hashtag is a bastardization of what the character stood for in comic lore.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill
Shooting partials in IDPA is a different test than USPSA. In IDPA hard cover, actual stage props, and non-threat targets can present you with part of a target, and mistakes can be costly. Sgt. Bill explains how to attack the different types of partials you might face in an IDPA match.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Aaron Israel gets back to basic and discusses the “AOJ Triad” — Ability, Opportunity, and Jeopardy — and how they are used to determine when it is appropriate to use deadly force in self-defense. Beyond knowing the law in your state, understanding this concept is key to deciding if you are justified or prosecuted for a defensive shooting.

Mia's Motivations with Mia Anstine
Mia Anstine builds on Aaron's tip from last week, discussing how to arm your older children as they go off to college. They can't take a gun with them, and in many cases even less-than lethal weapons are forbidden. You can arm them with the gift of fear and intuition.

Prayer of the Week
Keep, we implore You, O Lord, Your Church with Your perpetual mercy; and because the frailty of mankind without You cannot but fall, keep us ever by Your help from all things hurtful and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
