Stop The Bleed (Save a Life)

Posted on Updated on

Class date: April 25, 2018

Class Time: 6pm-8pm

Cost: $30.00

Today we live in a world where terrorism, the actions of unstable people, and the dangerous impulses of friends and relatives are very real and becoming increasingly more frequent.

Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes.

However, anyone at the scene can act as immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do. We here at SSD Tactical Training, Inc. have certified instructors to each you the techniques to save a life.

Flying with FIREARM!

Tactical and Preparedness Newsletter
By: Ox & David Morris
If you’re thinking of flying with a firearm in the near future, I wanted to give you a heads-up…

In January, a deranged man flew from Alaska to Ft. Lauderdale, got his baggage, went into the bathroom, pulled out a checked pistol, loaded it, and started shooting defenseless people, killing 5.

It was horrible.

Delta had a choice to make.  They could make changes that would actually help people be safer, or they could engage in security theater that only harasses their law abiding customers who travel with firearms.

They chose to harass their customers.

I first ran into this a few months ago…and ran into it again this weekend.

Now, when you get to your final destination, if you’re trying to be low profile and carry a locked, hard sided gun case inside of ordinary luggage, Delta wants the world to know about it.

First off, they aren’t putting luggage with firearms in them on the normal carousel anymore.  You either have to claim your firearm from the Delta luggage desk or get it at over sized baggage.

Second, they’re putting a BIG sticker on luggage with firearms in them saying not to put it on the carousel.  No other luggage I’ve seen has this sticker…so every baggage handler, flyer, cab driver, bus driver, etc. knows that you have a firearm in your bag.

That’s not so bad…you can rip off the sticker pretty quickly.

But they went one step further.  They are zip-tieing the bags shut with heavy duty 3/8″ zip ties.  On a recent flight, my bag came out with 4 BIG zip ties on it.

Think about that…if you’re flying, you can’t have sharp objects.  They zip-tie bags shut so you can’t get into them.  This still leaves you with a few options…acquiring a blade, cutting it with 550 cord, melting it with a lighter, or shimming the locking mechanism being the easiest.

So, if you’re planning on flying with a pistol on Delta in the near future, make sure you have a plan before you go.

Five Fast Gun Reforms President Trump Will Sign Into Law

Posted on Updated on

Come train with us so you can get your License to Carry a firearm and be able to carry in all 50 States when President Trump enacts the National Concealed Carry Reciprocity law. 

Here are five fast gun law reforms President Trump and his Republican House and Senate can make.

Ending Gun-Free Zones On Military Bases

President Trump will have the authority to executive authority to pass an executive order allowing the United States military to carry firearms on duty. Our domestic military bases and facilities have been the site of numerous terror attacks and mass shootings. Trump can reverse that with the stroke of a pen. He would also apparently have the authority to end firearm bans on other federal property, but there are so many laws and regulations that I don’t want to make that claim prematurely.

National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

There is significant momentum towards establishing national concealed carry reciprocity in all 50 states. President Trump, working with a Republican-controlled House and Senate, should be able to get this passed into law within the first 90 days. There are four different bills to choose from in the House and Senate.

Legalizing Silencers

Making a hearing safety device criminal was one of the dumbest things ever done under the Administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt… and that’s saying a lot. The Hearing Protection Act is already written and has co-sponsors. It should be passed within the first 60 days of President Trump’s administration, which is a blessing to high-volume shooters such as myself who would like to better protect our hearing.

NICS Background Check Reform

Gun control supporters want a “universal” background checks on all gun purchases in order to create a de facto gun registry… and that’s just not going to happen. What is going to happen is that President Trump, the House, and Senate are going to work on legislation to close the gaping holes in the existing background check system so that it is more effective, ensuring better and more accurate updating of prohibited persons. This will likely run in conjunction with mental health reform to both help people in crisis obtain the help they need, and ensure that fears of losing their Second Amendment rights won’t keep people from seeking help for a temporary but important mental health crisis.

Allow Importation of Collectible Historical Firearms

President Obama has stymied the importation of historically significant firearms provided to allies after the Second World War and the Korean War through executive orders. The Collectible Firearms Protection Act will allow the reimportation of hundreds of thousand of M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, and M1911 pistols.

These are five laws that a Republican Congress and President Trump can pass within the first 90-180 days, but they are not the only laws being considered.
