Listener Feedback
Brother, i’m starting to like this YouTube thing you’re doing, get the shows a little sooner.  I went  to sheepdog seminar in Chattanooga couple weeks ago, it’s amazing how different I feel… it was like a revival for Patriots. But anyway I was wondering if you ever put your info pack together.  The church security info pack you used to talk about every week that you were working on it but I don’t think you have mentioned it in a while. And you really don’t know how good you made me feel when you and Doug were talking about cigars the other day, so I guess I know what to get you for your birthday LOL. If there’s anything I can do to help the two of you and the show please let me know.  you and Doug are a true blessing!  by the way, this week’s show with Matt Reynolds, he is very impressive.

Comedy Corner
The Duck Dog
An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him. He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, the eternal pessimist who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. they fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it. The pessimist watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word. On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, “Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?” “I sure did,” responded the pessimist. “He can’t swim.”

 

Weekly Bible Verses:
7If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples. 9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. 11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. John 15:7-11 ESV

Main Topic
Today in 1815, Americans defeat British forces at the Battle of New Orleans!

Did you know that we used to celebrate January 8 as a national holiday, with fireworks & celebrations, just like the Fourth of July!

We felt that we’d won the war that was, effectively, our 2nd war of independence! The outcome of the Revolution had been more than just a fluke!

On December 24, 1814, Great Britain and the United States signed a treaty in Ghent, Belgium that effectively ended the War of 1812. News was slow to cross the pond, however, and on January 8, 1815, the two sides met in what is remembered as one of the conflict’s biggest and most decisive engagements. In the bloody Battle of New Orleans, future President Andrew Jackson and a motley assortment of militia fighters, frontiersmen, slaves, Indians and even pirates weathered a frontal assault by a superior British force, inflicting devastating casualties along the way. The victory vaulted Jackson to national stardom, and helped foil plans for a British invasion of the American frontier.

Man shot during home invasion; suspect in custody
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Police have a man in custody for a burglary that ended with two people shot. Officers were called to a home in the 7900 block of Victory Drive in Wards Corner around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday. They arrived to find two men suffering from gunshot wounds. Both men were taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital and are both expected to fully recover from their injuries. Detectives have determined that 22-year-old Robert Hicks forced his way into the home, then exchanged gunfire with a 23-year-old man inside. Both men were shot. Hicks is charged with armed burglary, according to Norfolk Police. A witness at the scene told 10 On Your Side, “I was sleeping and about an hour ago, and we heard, pop, pop gunshots. My son immediately came to the room,  woke me up … I look out my window, and I see them (police) out there with their guns drawn.” This witness, who did not want to be identified, said she heard police tell a man to “get on the ground” at least 10 times. She said she feared there was going to be a standoff between that man and officers.

Weekly Bible Verses:
32 : 1 Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven,

whose sin is covered.

2 Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity,

and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

3 For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away

through my groaning all day long.

4 For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;

my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Selah

5 I acknowledged my sin to you,

and I did not cover my iniquity;

I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”

and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah

6 Therefore let everyone who is godly

offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;

surely in the rush of great waters,

they shall not reach him.

7 You are a hiding place for me;

you preserve me from trouble;

you surround me with shouts of deliverance. Selah

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;

I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

9 Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding,

which must be curbed with bit and bridle,

or it will not stay near you.

10 Many are the sorrows of the wicked,

but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord.

11        Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous,

and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!

Man shoots 2 armed men who tried to rob him at ATM, police say

PITTSBURGH – A man shot two would-be robbers early Thursday an ATM in Homewood, according to Pittsburgh police.

The 42-year-old man told police he was using an ATM on North Homewood Avenue shortly after 1 a.m., when two masked 16-year-olds with guns approached him and tried to rob him.

Police said he pulled out his own gun and shot one of the would-be robbers in the leg and the other in the stomach. The man, who was not injured, had a license to carry the firearm. “The victim happened to have a weapon that he is licensed to carry and he used that to defend himself in this situation,” police spokesperson Sonya Toler said.

Both of the would-be robbers were taken to the hospital in stable condition.

Police recovered the teenagers’ guns at the scene.

Charges against them are pending.

Thank you guys for doing this show. I’m a new listener and a daily carrier. Love the info you guys are putting out there. Keep up the good work for the Lord and the Gun owner community.

ITunes Review 5 Star By Foreigngunperson3000 – Oct 10, 2016

Great show, The greatest, impossible to find a better one.


Troy,

I ordered a shirt about two weeks ago, it came in the mail two days later. That is faster than the big internet stores, I am impressed (and a very cool shirt also). I am up to podcast 112, listen to it all day at work.

Wish list:

Rifle – have all the rifles I wanted

Shotgun – Same

Handgun – 2 Ruger Vaqueros in .357 mag.

Ammo – all I can buy.

Living in New Jersey, makes it a challenge (high taxes, low pay).

In the bible Jesus told us to to pray in secret, why do churches pray out-loud during the service? It would seem that they are doing what we were told not to do.

I am very glad you do not pray on the podcast.


Troy, Doug,

To borrow a line from  Rush Limbaugh: you two have talent on loan from GOD!

Keep up GODs work


Andy Wrenn

Sir,

I was listening to your podcast this week and continue to hear you promoting Frog Lube. I have looked into it at my LGS, but I can’t justify the price just to try it out. You had mentioned reaching out to you for samples. I would love to try it out if that offer is still on the table.

I have been listening for a few months now and enjoy your show every week. Keep up the good work and keep fighting the good fight. God Bless!

very respectfully,

Andy Wrenn


Cover wear

Hey Troy…

I have been thinking about a topic I would love you and Doug to cover.  I am always having a heck of a time with clothing to cover my weapon and not print. As you know I’m a smaller frame which makes it very hard to conceal a larger pistol.  Maybe this is something you guys could cover or maybe I missed an episode ?

God Bless

Mike

Ps did you make it out this way?  We headed back to MT and WY hitting Yellowstone again Grand Teton and Glacier.

Police: Father shoots home intruder who tried to start fire

Police say a father shot a home intruder in the stomach after the intruder broke into his family’s home and attempted to start a fire early Sunday in Central Lubbock.

Police responded to a burglary call about 2:15 a.m. Sunday in the 3700 block of 28th Street, according to a statement from Lubbock police spokeswoman Tiffany Pelt.

Officers arrived to find the suspect lying on the floor with a single gunshot wound to his stomach.

The victims, a family of six, told police they were sleeping when the man broke through a back door and entered their kitchen. One of the victims heard the man and alerted his parents there was an unknown man in their home.

The father told police he warned the suspect he had a gun, police were on the way and he needed to leave.

“At that point, the father says the suspect told the family to get out of the house as he poured lighter fluid on the floor and attempted to light it on fire,” the statement reads. “The father says he told the suspect to stop or he would shoot, but the suspect became more agitated and began approaching him until he could no longer back up. The suspect was then shot in the stomach.”

The man, whose name was not released, was taken to Covenant Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. None of the home’s occupants were injured.

Detectives with the Lubbock Police Department’s Persons Crimes unit were called to investigate. No arrests were made by late Sunday morning.

Georgia state patrol pulled over an elderly lady for speeding. When the officer approached the car the woman handed him her driver’s license and by mistake her carry permit.

The officer asked if she had any weapons in the car.

The lady replied, “yes sir, i have a 38 in the glove box.”

The officer said, “Any thing else”. The woman replied, “I have a glock in the console”.

The officer said, “Any thing else”. The woman replied, “I have a 380 in my pocket book”.

The officer replied, Ma’am what are you so scared of. The woman replied, “Absolutely Nothing Officer”.

Hey ,Doug
I may be one of few Spanish speaking listeners. I’m in El Paso Texas. Borders with New Mexico and Mexico.
Call me or text me for translations. Free of charge.
It was Tijeras- ( T-her-as) Spanish for scissors. And the pronunciation for Suarez- (su-ar-Es)was right.
Also I have a Keltec sub2000 in 9mm
I bought it as a truck gun in June from Academy. FYI- we have no issues finding these in Texas.

Thank you so much for your podcasts. It is great to listen to people that are like me and “defend the weak” as the Psalms say. I was listening to some of your old podcasts from August where yall mentioned about carrying in church. I thought yall would appreciate this that my pastor was a SWAT and police officer and carries. There are also about a dozen people who carry and a few (including me) that will be when the legal age.

It was pretty cool timing on listening to that podcast, in my Philosophy class at my college (which is a Christian College) we were talking about in this time of evil, what can Christians do and how t explain to non-believers why God lets evil happen. I randomly picked a podcast to listen to while i studied and what you said, and what the question I was dealing with matched up perfectly! God is pretty awesome



Good Morning Troy,
I love the podcast. Thanks to you and Doug for the time you take to share your gun knowledge and the word. I am a huge jeep lover and have often thought it would be great to start a podcast to share jeeps and God.
I come to you from West Grove Pennsylvania.
I have been currently thinking about my church and that we have no security or response team. Would you be able to give me some ideas of where to start and with who to get something like this started without stirring the pot within the church to much.
Thank you,
Keith Binkley

Weekly Bible Verses:
1 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!” 4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.5 And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!” 6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.” 8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” Isaiah 6:1-8 (ESV)

United we stand, divided we fall. ~Aesop

The first attributed use in modern times is to Founding Father John Dickinson in his pre-Revolutionary War song “The Liberty Song“, first published in the Boston Gazette in July 1768. In the song Dickinson wrote: “Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall!” Kentucky entered the Union on June 1, 1792. A little over six months later, on December 20, 1792, the first Kentucky General Assembly adopted the official seal of the Commonwealth, including the state motto, United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

‘United We Stand’ license plate designed by Troy Wingard for the South Carolina Department of Public Safety in 2002

Patrick Henry used the phrase in his last public speech, given in March 1799, in which he denounced The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions. Clasping his hands and swaying unsteadily, Henry declaimed, “Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs.” At the end of his oration, Henry fell into the arms of bystanders and was carried almost lifeless into a nearby tavern. Two months afterward, he died.

John 10:10 (ASV) The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have [it] abundantly.

Atlanta Woman Exercises her Right to Defend her Livelihood
Posted at 9:25 pm on September 22, 2016 by Beth Baumann
Last week Friday, three men kicked in an Atlanta, Georgia suburb home around 4 a.m. The first burglar was met by a female homeowner who reached for her firearm. The woman fatally shot the initial intruder, 28-year-old Antonio Leaks, in the torso. The other two suspects returned fire before fleeing the scene.
The home invasion was caught on security cameras from inside the woman’s home. “It’s not common that we receive this caliber of surveillance video showing the crime unfold, an actual home invasion,” Cpl. Deon Washington with the Gwinnett County Police Department said.
“She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property,” Washington said.
Gwinnett, Georgia police are relying on the surveillance video to identify and apprehend the two men who remain at large. Both men are described as African American, between 20 and 30 and around six feet tall.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Gwinnett Police Department at 770-513-5300. Anonymous tips can be left with Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS.

A Hymn with Punch

A preacher was finishing a rousing sermon against the evils of drink. His voice filling the church, he said, “If I had all the beer in the world, I’d take it and throw it into the river.”

Growing more impassioned, he shouted, “And if I had all the wine in the world, I’d take it and throw it into the river.”

Finally, he thundered, “And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I’d take it and throw it into the river.” He sat down.

The song leader then stood up and announced, “For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365: ‘Shall We Gather at the River.'”

Listener Feedback

Greetings from the Peach State
5 Star by Marvin Fore – Sept 14
As a fellow Christian I find it very refreshing to see other men openly praising Jesus. I really enjoy the podcast and think these guys are a great team. I have enjoyed the variety of the topics they cover, not just boring springs and trigger gun talk. A very down to earth opinion of two guys that are not employed in the gun market. Thank you both for taking your time to share with us your valuable opinions. I believe our country needs more men like us in our countries current situation.

God Bless and Stay safe



From Kaleb Olson

Troy and Doug,
Hello, my name is Kaleb Olson and I have been listening to your podcasts for a few months now. I am very passionate about firearms and am a proud follower of Jesus. I am a junior biology major in college and have been blessed to be able to lead a small group for a college ministry called SALT Company. My mentor and I had an extended conversation about concealed carry and self-defense as Christians. We were wrestling with the topic because if we truly have put all our trust in Jesus Christ than who are we to take our lives into our own hands by defending them with a firearm or other self-defense weapons?

One of your podcasts I had listened to, you guys made King David the example. King David killed many men and many in defense for his life. King David is obviously considered a man after God’s own heart but as I stated above, we couldn’t help but to feel like our trust might not be in the Lord if we choose to defend ourselves. I mentioned your podcast to my mentor and we mutually sought to get both of your input on this topic. I already know your answer but I would like your explanations. I would greatly appreciate it.

I would also just like to extend my sincerest thanks to you for using a platform such as podcast to boldly spread the gospel. If I may, I’d also like to make a prayer request. Our church is growing at an astounding rate and as such we were looking for a new building. It just so happens that another local church was considering finding a new location and we are actually “swapping buildings”. I’d ask that you pray that we are able to raise the funds to make all the payments on the new building and that it won’t limit our ability to do ministry by cutting our current budget too tight.

I plan on leaving you an iTunes review in the near future when I get some time and figure out how to do it! Lastly, I’d like to commit to buying a patch, t-shirt, and one of the decals! I’d like the t-shirt in medium please. I noticed you have them up on the website store but I figured since I was already in contact with you about this that I’d just order them through the email! So I’d like your instructions on payment.

Once again, thank you and I am greatly looking forward to your input.

God bless,

Kaleb Olson

70-year-old man fights off home invader, KRQE, Albuquerque, N.M. 09/09/16

A 70-year-old man who walks using a cane was at home in Tijeras, N.M. when an intruder broke into the house. The home invader attacked the elderly man with a hockey stick and a piece of bamboo. The elderly man responded to the attack by retrieving a .38-caliber handgun and shooting his assailant, killing him.

The elderly man’s neighbors were supportive of his actions, with one telling a local media outlet, “Good for him. That’s awesome that he was able to think that fast and he was able to protect himself.” Another neighbor added, “Thank god that he’s armed and you know, most of us up here are. I hope people see this is not a good place to come for sure.” (KRQE, Albuquerque, N.M. 09/09/16)

Only three doors

An airline captain was breaking in a new blonde stewardess. The route they were flying had a layover in another city. Upon their arrival, the captain showed the stewardess the best place for airline personnel to eat, shop and stay overnight.

The next morning, as the pilot was preparing the crew for the day’s route, he noticed the new stewardess was missing. He knew which room she was in at the hotel and called her up wondering what happened. She answered the phone, crying, and said she couldn’t get out of her room. “You can’t get out of your room?” the captain asked, “Why not?”

The stewardess replied: “There are only three doors in here,” she sobbed, “one is the bathroom, one is the closet, and one has a sign on it that says ‘Do Not Disturb’!”

Police officer’s cousin uses officer’s gun to fight off armed robbers in NYC,

New York Post, New York, N.Y. 08/16/16

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17, 2016

A pair of thieves, at least one of whom was armed with a gun, approached an off-duty police officer who was with his girlfriend and cousin outside a bar in New York City. An altercation ensued, during which the officer’s cousin was able to retrieve the officer’s gun from his vehicle. Once armed, the cousin shot one of the robbers. The wounded thief fled the scene, but was found at a local hospital a short time later.

With the incident having occurred in one of the most anti-gun jurisdictions in the country, the New York Post noted that the officer “could face disciplinary charges for not securing his gun and allowing the weapon to fall into the hands of a civilian.” The wounded robber was determined to be a parolee. (New York Post, New York, N.Y. 08/16/16)

Weekly Bible Verses:

9 Be not quick in your spirit to become angry, for anger lodges in the heart of fools. 10 Say not, “Why were the former days better than these?” For it is not from wisdom that you ask this. 11 Wisdom is good with an inheritance, an advantage to those who see the sun. 12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it. 13 Consider the work of God: who can make straight what he has made crooked? 14 In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man may not find out anything that will be after him. 15 In my vain life I have seen everything. There is a righteous man who perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man who prolongs his life in his evildoing.16 Be not overly righteous, and do not make yourself too wise. Why should you destroy yourself? 17 Be not overly wicked, neither be a fool. Why should you die before your time? 18 It is good that you should take hold of this, and from that withhold not your hand, for the one who fears God shall come out from both of them. Ecclesiastes 7:9-18 (ESV)

Right-to-Carry permit holder stops rifle-wielding robber, Dallas Morning News, Dallas, Texas July 13, 2016 A man armed with a rifle entered a Waffle House in DeSoto, Texas and robbed the business and the customers inside. As the robber went to the parking lot, an armed Right-to-Carry permit holder followed, concerned the criminal might harm his wife, who was set to arrive at the restaurant. The armed citizen confronted the robber, who then pointed the rifle at him. Presented with this threat, the Right-to-Carry permit holder shot the robber.

When the authorities arrived, the wounded robber was taken to a local hospital. (Dallas Morning News, Dallas, Texas July 13, 2016)

Doug and Troy,

I just wanted to reach out to you guys and thank you for what you guys are doing. It really is a breath of fresh air in the society around us to hear you guys talking about the gospel and also about Christian gun ownership. I just stumbled onto this podcast recently, so I have been playing catch up on recent episodes.

I am sure you took care of this Troy (I think it was Troy), one of your listeners must have queued you in. You mentioned on your Gen4 Glock the back-strap not staying on. I think you’re not installing it right. In the back of the grip there is a small pin that you need to push out, and when you install the back-strap on, you then push in the larger pin in that was supplied with the pistol. Hope this helps. I really enjoy the Gen4 models due to the changeable backstrap. Once the larger pin is installed it shouldn’t be an issue.

I wanted to help you guys out with a joke, like I said I am recent listener so you might have heard this one already.

A pastor decides to miss church on Sunday to go bear hunting with some friends one weekend. The guilt of missing service is really bothering him throughout the drive. While walking down a road on the side of a hill a huge bear jumps out. The pastor loses his balance and falls downhill. When he stops at the bottom of the hill his leg is badly damaged so he cannot get up and run. The bear is now running downhill full speed towards him. The pastor starts praying “Lord I know I shouldn’t have missed service today, please forgive me. I will never miss another service to go hunting again, please put your hand on this bear and still his rage.” The bear halts to a stop just before the pastor, kneels down and prays “Please Lord bless this food you have given me”.

I look forward to more episodes. My local church is Midlothian Bible Church in Midlothian,TX an hour south of Dallas. If you guys are ever coming down this way, we have a great local range and tons of guns. Let me know. Keep spreading the word.

A friend of mine is a missionary in Africa. His little 4 year old daughter became worried that there wouldn’t be anyone for her to marry when the time came. She worried about it all the time for a week. Finally she had an idea. She said, daddy, will you marry me? To make his little girl happy he said ok honey, daddy will marry you. Now happy at last she planned the big day as only a 4 year old can.

Everything was set, they all dressed up and daddy was going to perform the wedding as well as be in it. When the time came he looked at his daughter and said now it’s time for the wedding vows. Without missing a beat she yelled out, A,E,I,O,U.

The wedding was over.

Thanks,

Hi Troy and Doug – I have been listening to the show for about six months now and wanted to drop you guys a line and say thank you for the work that you do each week in producing the podcast.

I also wanted to take the time to thank you for helping to encourage me to get back into shooting and gun ownership and share a bit of my story with you guys.

I got into duck hunting and trap shooting when I was in junior high years ago, but fell away from hunting and shooting when I went through some tough times during high school and my early twenties.

When I was thirty, I came to Christ. During the first few years of my walk, I simply enjoyed the newness of spiritual growth and tended to avoid processing the tougher issues of ethics and faith. Now that I’m more mature, I am revisiting my thoughts on many things.

I grew up always wanting to serve in the military, but had an injury and a medical condition that kept me out of the service. Not being able to serve was actually what caused me to turn away from God back in high school. I sometimes struggle with regret for not serving when so many of my generation served us with great honor in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The more and more I’ve struggled with this, I began to have some dark spots and doubts in my faith. Anyway, I heard about the book “A Time to Kill: The Myth of Christian Pacifism” by Greg Hopkins from you guys a while back. It has been very helpful in integrating my beliefs about military service, gun ownership, and self-defense ethics with my relationship with Jesus. Thank you for having Greg on the show!

After eighteen years of not shooting, I was re-introduced to guns last fall by my wife’s cousin who is a police officer. Now at the age of thirty six and having just received the precious gift our first daughter, I’ve begun to seriously consider my role as protector of my family.

A mentor from church and I recently completed our CCW class at Bill’s Gun Shop in Robbinsdale, MN. I rented a pistol from the range to complete the class, and am saving up money whenever I can towards the purchase of my first pistol and to pay for the CCW permit fees. (I’m leaning towards a G19; by the way – nice MOS build Troy!) With our new daughter and mine and my wife’s student loans, things are tight, so I’m also working on a side business to help pay for ammo, range time, and some training classes.

The business is called Cross & Dot Optics and will be an online retailer of Red Dots, Scopes, and shooting accessories. The name was inspired a bit by Crossbreed Holsters and a word I got years ago to start ‘Kingdom ventures’. I’m still looking for ideas to integrate the Kingdom connection for this business, but right now I’m leaning towards allocating a portion of the profits to veterans ministries.

In the beginning I just hope to serve the shooting community, police and military with excellent customer service and a great online user experience to make shopping for optics simple and easy. The site is under construction and will launch later this summer, but I’ve started the store’s Instagram account @crossndotoptics to keep folks up-to-date. For now I am curating a feed of the Internet’s best optics equipped pistols, rifles, carbines and shotgun images.

Again, I want to thank you guys for your work. Keep up the great podcast and I hope you guys are able to get your T-Shirt store up and running sometime soon.

Blessings,

Weekly Bible Verses
13 All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. 14 In righteousness you shall be established; you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. 15 If anyone stirs up strife, it is not from me; whoever stirs up strife with you shall fall because of you. 16 Behold, I have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and produces a weapon for its purpose. I have also created the ravager to destroy; 17 no weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.” Proverbs 6:13-17 (ESV)

A Life of Violent Threats Paved Way for Orlando Attack

Again and again for much of his life, Omar Mateen let people know he was a violent, dangerous person capable of murder. Repeatedly, he wiggled out of trouble, distracting officials with a beguiling charm, a feigned stupidity or some other tactic.

A look at Mateen’s troubled life, based on interviews with officials and people who knew him, as well as documents, reveals that on at least a dozen occasions, beginning when he was in grade school, he gave clues in a public setting that he was capable of mayhem.

At age 14, he said he could shoot an AK-47 and mimicked an airplane flying into the World Trade Center. At 26, he bragged to courthouse co-workers of terrorist ties. Weeks ago, at 29, Mateen sought to buy heavy-duty body armor and bulk ammunition.

Many of his violent outbursts aped or celebrated Islamic terrorism and he repeatedly claimed connections to known terrorists, including the Boston Marathon bombers. He cheered the 9/11 attacks on the day they happened and once threatened to shoot partygoers at a barbecue when pork, which is forbidden to Muslims, touched his hamburger.

There doesn’t appear to be a moment when Mateen’s political extremism and religious zealotry kicked into high gear. Rather, this appears to be a case of slow, steady intensification.

Law-enforcement officials say he became radicalized online yet key facts remain unknown about what drove him to launch a terror attack. Officials are probing what his wife knew about his plans. Investigators are scrutinizing Mateen’s communications and travel history to detail any direct or indirect influence he might have had with terror networks.

Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan on Thursday called the Orlando massacre part of a pattern of attacks Islamic State is trying to encourage by “sympathizers who have no direct links to the group.”

Twice during his adult life, Mateen’s actions prompted probes by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Agents concluded he didn’t pose an immediate threat.

Robert Zirkle, who knew him through school in 2001, said: “We joked that he’d become a terrorist. And then he did.”

On Sunday, he went into an Orlando nightclub, murdered 49 people and injured 53, and claimed the moment for Islamic State.

Mateen’s story cuts to the heart of the worst scenario for domestic law enforcement and policy makers. While he hadn’t committed a crime as an adult, his record was replete with incidents that troubled those around him.

Early Sunday, the trail of threats culminated with the massacre Mateen had in a sense been foretelling for almost two decades, raising troubling questions in particular for the FBI and his most recent employer, G4S Secure Solutions.

FBI director James Comey said this week he doesn’t think the FBI should have done anything differently in its earlier probes, though it is conducting a far-reaching review to see what the FBI may have misjudged. G4S, a British security firm, said in a statement two screenings it conducted of Mateen found nothing disqualifying.

After each disturbing eruption of anger, Mateen always danced just out of reach of those who could have stopped him. He hopped from school to school, job to job. Paper records were drawn up, notice was taken but little seemed to follow him.

Omar Mateen’s trouble began early. He was disciplined at school 31 times between 1992 and 1999, for reasons including hitting another student, school records show. He was constantly demanding attention, either as a goofball or a bully, regularly wearing a gym shirt in high school emblazoned with his name, “O. Mateen,” classmates said.

Kathleen Zurich, who said she taught Mateen in fourth and fifth grade, characterized him as a bully who called classmates “ugly” or “gay” and painted himself as a victim—but had a softer side. “That’s the scary part,” she said. “There was a nice side of him that you can see, and yet he can be so nasty. Almost like a Dr. Jekyll and Hyde personality.”

At a barbecue in the spring of 2007, Mateen erupted when his hamburger touched a piece of pork, something he considered a religious affront. He told the class he ought to kill all of them, recalled Susanne Coburn Laforest, 61, who attended the barbecue as a trainee. Mateen told his classmates not to laugh at him because this was serious and “was going to come back and shoot us,” she said.

Not long after, Mateen was sitting in his car in the parking lot as classes were about to resume, when authorities swarmed the auto and escorted him off the property. An official told cadets Mateen had threatened to bring a gun on campus, according to Clinton Custar, who was attending the academy at the time and saw the incident from a classroom window.

This was the same month Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and Mateen threatened to carry out a similar massacre at the police academy because he felt like he was being taunted for being Muslim, said a fellow cadet.

Robert Lane, a spokesman for the school, now Indian River State College, said it had no record that Mateen was involved in disciplinary actions or had interactions with campus security. Mateen was released from the academy in April 2007 when his employment with the Department of Corrections ended, he said.

How the Orlando Shooting Unfolded

ZACHARY SCHEFFER FOR THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Mateen was hired by G4S, essentially working as a security guard. People who encountered him for a few minutes each day at various sites described him as jovial and pleasant. But in a video that surfaced this week, showing Mateen in 2010 at a gate to the BP PLC cleanup site, he again expresses grievance, albeit calmly.

Grandiose boasts about terrorist ties, when he was 26, put Mateen on the FBI’s radar. He was starting to spook co-workers at the St. Lucie County Courthouse, where he was a security guard. Colleagues reported Mateen was bragging about knowing people in al Qaeda and claiming he was a Hezbollah member. He told co-workers he knew associates of the Tsarnaev brothers, who had bombed the Boston Marathon that year, according to the complaints.

“The FBI is very eager to find out” about his motives, “even if it is a very complicated and conflicting set of motivations,” said Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

Several weeks ago, Mateen walked into Lotus Gunworks of South Florida. He acted strange, said store co-owner Robbie Abell, asking for heavy-duty body armor and bulk ammunition. He “just seemed very odd,” Mr. Abell said. The store didn’t stock body armor and refused to sell him bulk ammunition.

Mateen moved along, as he had on other occasions when he incurred suspicion or fear. He found what he was looking for somewhere else.

Homeowner on Detroit’s west side shoots intruder, shares his story with 7 Action News

DETROIT (WXYZ) – It was a harrowing encounter on Detroit’s west side, when a homeowner shot the intruder who was holding him and his wife at gunpoint. It happened before 6:00 Monday night at a home off Beaverland Rd. near Eaton. Detroit police said two men ordered the homeowner and his wife into their house and then into the basement. Daniel McNamara is the homeowner. He told his incredible story only to 7 Action News.

“He kept telling us to turn around, I said ‘No, I’m not going to turn around,’ I said ‘You’ve got to kill me face to face’,” said McNamara. He said the suspects wanted him and his wife to turn around so they wouldn’t remember their faces. During the home invasion, the suspects took both of the McNamara’s wedding rings, her purse, cash and cell phones.

“He kept pointing the gun at my head and said, ‘You don’t think I’ll kill you face to face?’ I said ‘I don’t know, but you’re going to have to because I’m not turning around’,” said McNamara. He said he happened to have a gun stashed in the same area the suspects were holding the pair at gunpoint. “All I could think about, how can I get that gun,” said McNamara. He took his opportunity when one of the suspects said he would be right back and turned around and headed toward the stairs. “Of course I was scared, who wouldn’t be? Some goon has a gun to your head and tells you he’s going to shoot you because you’ve seen his face,” said McNamara.

He fired off two shots and hit one of the suspects once. Both of the suspect’s ran away very fast, McNamara believes there was likely a car waiting. One of the suspects turned up at the hospital and the second suspect is still on the run.

“The Lord looked out for us today,” said McNamara. Police continued to search the neighborhood for hours, but came up empty handed.

Store owner and friend thwart armed robbery in Cleveland, Cleveland.com, Cleveland, Ohio
MONDAY, APRIL 4, 2016 The owner of Suleyman’s Market in Cleveland, Ohio was tending to the store when a pair of masked and armed men came in and attempted to rob him. Outside the store, a man witnessed the robbery and flagged down a police car.

The owner complied with the robbers’ demands for cash, but as the pair attempted to flee the market they spotted a police officer waiting for them outside. The thieves retreated into the store, prompting the store owner’s friend to retrieve a gun and confronted the robbers. Eventually, the friend was able to detain the criminals, who were then taken into police custody. (Cleveland.com, Cleveland, Ohio, 03/31/16)
