18D Med Lab Training - HOT ISSUE

We received this message about a threat that so-called "animal-rights" types may be posing to the training of medics, PJs, and other SOF medics. Please pass the word to all those you know, and urge your member of Congress to stand up for our SOF troops getting the training they need.

The Special Forces & SOF community 18D Medical Lab Training Course is in jeopardy and needs immediate feedback. Gentlemen, we are going to need an enormous amount of documentaries, professional statements and accounts of why Med Lab Training with animals on live tissue saves lives.

NRA RELEASES SCHOOL SAFETY PROPOSALS

Broad Report Suggests Full Range of Efforts
By Harold Hutchison

The NRA’s School Shield Program released a 225-page report, which included measures for prevention, as well as steps to be prepared for an incident and a means to respond to an incident. The report, presented by former DEA chief Asa Hutchinson, was intended as a response to the 14 December shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Safety Is Paramount In Public Places

With many of today's headlines telling the heartbreaking stories of gun violence and mass murders in the U.S., questions about when and where tragedy will strike next are becoming common everyday conversations.

But those conversations -- at home, in schools and throughout the workplace -- are important to ensure that people remain aware and vigilant in protecting themselves and those they love.

Police shootings raise questions, public outcry

Which Caliber is Right for You?

By Gary Paul Johnston

In the last column we looked at some of issues with duty pistols; now we’re going to look at ammunition. OK, I can hear you…”Oh, no, not this argument again!” Don’t worry, we won’t argue. Well, you may, but listen up. First, a lot of good folks, including cops, have grown up and are carrying pistols (or have bought one for protection) since the last time this was hashed over. Just as important is that some things have changed right under our noses, so we need to look and see if we’re still talking that 1970s stuff.
