Last Month's Meeting


John Krupa owner of Spartan Tactical was our speaker. He has trained over 12,000 students so far in his career. His first rule when carrying a firearm is to avoid confrontations if at all possible. The outcome usually is not good, and if a firearm is used the outcome is even worse, even if you are successful.

Jeff Cooper wrote 2 books in 1976 on mindset. Knowing how to shoot is very different than knowing how to protect yourself. 


Condition white is being completely unaware, such as texting, etc. Condition yellow is always being aware and analyzing, and visualizing condition orange is seeing a potential threat and how to solve it. Do you run, hide, shoot, tackle them, where does the bullet go if you shoot. Develop a tactical plan call 911, etc.



Chairman's Comments

Conservative author and speaker, Ann Coulter, is just the latest victim of the hateful leftists in this country. Ann was going to give a speech at Berkley, supposedly the 'birthplace and home of free speech' in this country. With threatened riots (not just protests) and the Mayor saying he could not guarantee her safety, she finally had to cancel at the last moment. It was later discovered that the Mayor is associated with extreme hate groups. If he wanted her to speak, he could have gotten enough police to ensure order. This is in addition to the forty-two times that a conservative speaker had to cancel their scheduled speech in 2016. Guess how many times a liberal speaker had to be cancelled for security reasons.....NONE!!!

In Portland Oregon, protesters shattered business windows, set bonfires in the streets and vandalized a police car on Monday, May Day, afternoon as a May Day protest devolved into a short-lived but chaotic riot. It began as a city-permitted march, but ultimately black-clad leftists Fascists protesters wearing masks, started fires and doing major property damage. Police declared it a riot. Officers used flash-bang grenades to disperse the crowd arresting 25 people. Windows were broken in many buildings including Target and Brooks Brothers.
