Boxer Tactical Daily Digest 5.3.16

After some Hamlet-like hemming and hawing, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam has decided to let a campus carry half-measure bill become law without his signature. “The bill allows full-time faculty, staff and other employees of Tennessee’s public colleges and universities who have handgun-carry permits to carry their guns on campus….” So faculty and staff will have full civil rights, but students are still SOL. Still, a step in the right direction. Speaking of once unthinkable political outcomes . . .

Personal Defense Tip: Approach Domestic Disputes With Extreme Caution

“Just before noon on Monday, 35-year-old T.J. Antell, who had served in the Marines, watched the unfolding of a domestic dispute between a man and a woman outside a Walgreens in Arlington, Texas, authorities said. The man, a soldier stationed at Fort Hood, allegedly fired a gun twice, one bullet burying into the ground and another striking the woman. He then climbed into his truck in the parking lot and attempted to leave when Antell tried to stop him.” So reports the Washington Post. And nothing at all good came of Antell’s efforts to stop a fleeing suspect . . .

Captain America Shield for Reelz!

As a young lad, I was completely captivated by Bullfinch’s Mythology. (Click here to view or download.). So I fully appreciate and understand the deep not-to-say timeless appeal of comic book superheroes/villains/mutants. Not to start a civil war, the current crop of Marvel/DC movies doesn’t flick my BIC. I only enjoy the characters when they aren’t engaging in endless CGI battles. Anyway, Jerry “Get Some” Miculek sets out to test a real world (titanium) Captain America shield. You want to talk about real world heroes? Ladies and gentlemen: Jerry Miculek.

DeSantis Gunhide Question of the Day: Would You Treat Your Assailant?

(courtesy tacticalshit.com)

You’ve just shot someone who posed an imminent, credible threat of death or grievous bodily harm. They are lying on the floor, bleeding. “Make sure you eliminate the threat,” Former Combat Medic Jon Wayne Taylor cautions, meaning continue shooting or leave. “But if they’re no longer a threat you have a moral obligation to treat them.” (“Apply pressure until the bright red blood stops.”) Yes?

1600 Defensive Gun Uses Per Year? Incendiary Image of the Day

(courtesy The Trace)

We’ve been noticing a concerted effort by proponents of civilian disarmament to entirely discredit the idea of defensive gun use. And for good reason. Most Americans support Second Amendment protections against government infringements on the right to keep and bear arms primarily because they cherish their natural right to self-defense. Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitpropagandists have joined the campaign targeting the single greatest impediment to gun control with their article Gun-Rights Advocates Claim Owning a Gun Makes a Woman Safer. The Research Says They’re Wrong. Here’s their opening salvo . . .

Boxer Tactical Daily Digest 5.2.16: Less is Moore

I apologize for the low volume of the pro-gun control speech above. Or not. As we’ve previously reported, Ms. Moore is leading Scientology’s Everytown for Gun Safety’s Hollywood insurgency. I’m sure that they will find fertile ground, given that Tinseltown is a hotbed of leftist/statist activism. Meanwhile, Hollywood producers are cranking out movies that celebrate armed self-defense, seen by millions worldwide. So . . . who cares? Here’s some other news from the world ‘o guns . . .
