"Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician." - Jeff Cooper Call for a pizza, a cop, and an ambulance and see which one arrives first. In Warren v. District of Columbia the court ruled, and the Supreme Court upheld, that "(T)he desire for condemnation cannot satisfy the need for a special relationship out of which a duty to specify persons arises."

"Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician." - Jeff Cooper Call for a pizza, a cop, and an ambulance and see which one arrives first. In Warren v. District of Columbia the court ruled, and the Supreme Court upheld, that "(T)he desire for condemnation cannot satisfy the need for a special relationship out of which a duty to specify persons arises." Because the complaint did not allege a relationship "beyond that found in general police responses to crimes," the court affirmed the dismissal of the complaint for failure to state a claim. The bottom line is that your local police are not legally obligated to protect you, the average citizen. In addition to the Warren case, there are hundreds of court rulings which state that cops are not legally responsible for protecting individual citizens. For example, see Zelig v. County of Los Angeles, The government can't protect you as you saw on September 11, 2001 as well as during the Washington, DC area "sniper" rampage. In fact, the government could very well be our greatest fear, due to its propensity to murder people because of their ideas (See Ruby Ridge, ID and Waco, TX). A simple internet or youtube.com search of "the police state" or "police brutality" will reveal literally thousands of violent crimes (from assault to cold blooded murder) committed by the State's costumed emissaries of officially sanctioned violence (aka The Police State) against harmless and innocent people. So, who does that leave to protect you, your life, property and family? The one and only answer is: YOU It is your duty and personal responsibility to protect yourself and your loved ones. This responsibility is a natural right given to us by God as human beings and guaranteed to us as individuals by the Constitution of the United States of America. This Handbook is intended to help you exercise that right and meet that responsibility. It begins with safety, always the primary consideration in any training scenario. No war was ever won by shooting the good guys. It then takes up where all firearms training should begin-with basic, open sighted rifle marksmanship on a known distance range. This chapter follows the US Marine Corps' Marksmanship Manuals very closely. It fully reveals the training techniques that have made US Marines the most accomplished marksmen of all the military organizations on the face of the earth. After mastering these "fundamentals," the reader/trainee is ready to be introduced to the basic principles of Combat Shooting including threat assessment, the hierarchy of survival principles (combat mindset) and principles of training. Then separate chapters cover the fine points of combat rifle (carbine), combat shotgun and combat pistol technique. It then wraps up with a final chapter covering advanced combat applications, training techniques and drills. Remember, train like you fight-fight like you train. Train hard. Be safe. Stay low. Watch your six and come home alive and God bless. Options for Homeland Defense, Inc. (Protecting Liberty through Private Firearms Ownership) offers professional weapons and tactics training that will make the difference. Instructed by experienced combat veterans-guys that have "been there and done that." It offers private instruction at its privately owned range and mobile training teams are available.
