Gun Training: When Police Attack

October 2nd, 2012

Police are supposed to serve and protect, right? These men and women are hired to take care of us as citizens, correct? They carry guns and pepper spray and batons… several weapons that should be of use to them in dangerous situations. We are brought up knowing that we can always feel safe when a police officer is around. Gun control is a widely supported idea, because the only people out there that should have guns are these guys. Right? Not so much.

What happens when these men with the guns abuse their power? If strict gun control is in place, where are we then? How can we protect ourselves? I may sound like I am being overly anxious or paranoid. However, my coworker came to work today with a scary story of something that happened yesterday pretty close to her house.

The off duty police officer, hanging out in a bar, walked up to a group of guys that were playing darts. He started talking to them about darts and then said flat out, “I am better at darts than you are.”One of the men replied, saying, “Aw, you suck at darts.” Kind of a stupid conversation, I would say, and definitely not one to lose a life over… but in this day and age, we really have to be prepared for anything.

The police officer replied with, “That’s why I’m a cop. I can do whatever I want to do.” A few more words were exchanged, but the conclusion of the story is that “whatever he wanted to do” just so happened to be pulling out his gun and shooting one of the guys three times, killing him. What would you do if you witnessed something like that? Would you have just sat and watched? Or would you have tried to take down the guy with the gun? Would you have presented your own gun in defense of the unarmed man? Wait… if gun control is active, how could you have done that?

Gun control is a bad thing. It will not help anyone. What we need to do is get adequate gun training so that we can be prepared to protect ourselves and others in dangerous situations. Dr. Ignatius Piazza, a Four Weapons Combat Master, started a gun training school in Pahrump, Nevada, called Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. Front Sight offers the world’s greatest gun training of any kind, hands down.

Now, you may be thinking that if you witnessed the above situation, no amount of gun training could have or would have helped you or the victim. This dude was a cop. He has been professionally trained to use a gun. However, you should be aware that while Ignatius Piazza’s gun training program at Front Sight is offered to normal people like you and me, it provides gun training that outshines that of law enforcement and the military. After one self defense gun training course from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight, you can have shooting skills that surpass those of many law enforcement officers in America. No other gun training school can say that.

So, let me ask you again. If you witnessed the above situation, what would you have done? I got my gun training from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight. What about you?

Does Gun Control Mean Less Murder?

November 25th, 2011

In South Africa, it is severely difficult to obtain a gun. Applicants that would like to own a gun need to pass a competency test, a background check, an inspection of their homes and the police need to license the weapon, among other things that factor into the application process. The waiting period is usually longer than two years, and many people are denied arbitrarily. The BGOASA (an association of gun-owners in South Africa) was disappointed to report that about 2% of applicants were successful in obtaining a firearms. In addition, in three years (2006-2009) the police of South Africa reported a loss of 8,286 firearms, many of which were stolen.

Austria has much less strict gun control laws. There are some guns that the government restricts, but for the most part, citizens can get a gun somewhat easily. There are guns that require permission through licensing and some guns that require registration, while there are some guns that do not require registration at all. Most guns can be obtained by any citizen that is 18 years of age or older.

Which country do you think has a lower murder rate?

South Africa, with its very strict gun control laws, has been reported as one of the countries with the highest murder rates in the world, while Austria has been reported as one of the lowest murder rates.

Interesting.

It just goes to show that gun control does not equal less murder.

Founder and director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, is a believer in this concept. Gun control is not going to help us. In the case of South Africa, the criminals that wanted guns stole them from the police. Where does that leave us law abiding citizens if the criminals have the guns and we do not? “Great… the guy that just broke into my house and is holding my wife has a gun. And I have this handy dandy bat that I can swing at him from across the room while he shoots me?”

Our Founding Fathers seemed to have it in their minds that owning a gun for self defense was important enough to list it as the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. We, as Americans, have a duty to uphold that right by not taking advantage of the situation, and by being SMART and SAFE about it. If we choose to practice our Second Amendment Right to keep and bear arms, we owe it to ourselves, our loved ones and our Founding Fathers to know how to safely handle that firearm. Ignatius Piazza, a Four Weapons Combat Master, can help us be smart and safe about gun ownership by giving us the best gun training money can buy at his gun training school, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.

Guns can be efficient tools of self defense… if they are handled properly and used correctly. Please do not choose to own a gun just because it is a “right.” As Uncle Ben so famously stated, “With great power comes great responsibility.” If you want to own a gun, please get gun training and learn how to use that gun safely. Come to Front Sight and secure yourself that gun training.

Gun Training v. Gun Control: Choose Gun Training

October 16th, 2011

How did you spend your Fourth of July? Many people spent their Independence Day at the barbecue, enjoying burgers and maybe a cold one or two. Some people party their cares away. But there is one thing that is for sure: Walking down the street on July Fourth is a huge reminder of how great it is to be an American. People carry flags and fly them high, proud of where they live and where they come from. We, as Americans, are afforded some of the greatest freedoms we could ever ask for. I don’t know about you, but I would really like to keep those freedoms.

It is almost time for another Election Year. Seeing what has happened over the last several years, it is obvious we really need to think about who we elect as our new President. What are the issues that are really important to you? For many people, like myself, the issue of health care is important. Taxes interest a lot of people. The Department of Defense interests a large group of people. Another issue that is super important to me is that good old Second Amendment: The Right to Bear Arms.

We have come way too close to losing that right… and I want a President that is going to help us keep it. However, Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, has worked hard in the past to help our lawmakers know just how important that right is to us, and he will not stop working. Ignatius Piazza, the founder and director of a huge gun training school called Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, is an avid Second Amendment supporter, as am I. He understands how important it is that we keep that right to bear arms. If we lose that right, it puts us in danger because as much as we don’t like to admit, the bad guys are still going to have guns. Gun control is not the answer. Guns are never going to be completely out of the picture. They will always be there.

The truth of the matter is, is that guns in untrained hands are dangerous. There is no trying to get out of or around that one. But guns in the hands of someone who has had great gun training, like the self defense gun training offered by Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, can be wonderful tools for family protection and self defense. What we need to be doing is requiring professional gun training, rather than trying to kick guns out of the picture.

Front Sight offers the best gun training that money can buy. In just a few short days, Ignatius Piazza can teach anyone the skills it takes to safely and effectively use a gun for self defense. After just four days with Ignatius Piazza in his gun training courses at Front Sight, any student can have better gun handling skills than ninety nine percent of the gun owning population… and that includes people who use guns for a living.

I support the Second Amendment. I support Ignatius Piazza. And, as a student of the gun training school, I support Front Sight!

Gun Control v. Gun Training: Is Gun Control Really Safer?

August 16th, 2011

Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, is a firm believer in the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Many people across America have conflicting views on this Amendment. Some love it. Some hate it. Some think it is okay but just not for them. Some are indifferent. Some are afraid of it. Some think it should go away and some think it should stay. I wonder why people want to do away with the Second Amendment. Why would we want to take away such a strong tool of self defense? Why would we want to put ourselves at risk?

Sure, at face value, the Pro Gun Control argument sounds awesome. “Getting rid of guns will reduce crime and keep us safer.” Who doesn’t want to be safer? I know I would love to live in a place with zero crime and not have to worry about walking down the street late at night, clutching my purse against me and looking over my shoulder to make sure I am not being followed. That would be great! But is getting rid of guns really going to get me to that place? If it can, I would really like to see how.

“If guns are outlawed, there won’t be any risk of getting shot, because people will not own them.” Can the owners of this argument please explain to me why I have seen people waste away in front of me due to drugs? I cannot understand how that happened. I also do not understand why parents worry about their children getting wrapped up in drug use. Drugs are illegal. People “shouldn’t” be about to get a hold of them if they are illegal… much like guns, right?

I don’t know about you, but I refuse to be naïve and believe that these gun control advocates have the right idea. Bad guys are going to break the law. If guns are outlawed, why would that stop them from getting a hold of them? All it will do is put us at risk, because our attackers will have guns and we will have something less powerful or effective.

Yes, guns in untrained hands are dangerous. But guns in well trained hands provide a great avenue for self defense and family protection. What we should be focusing on is getting people gun training instead of taking away a means of protection. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Pahrump, Nevada, offers the greatest gun training in the world and can be affordable for almost every budget. Ignatius Piazza has worked hard to offer the best quality gun training and to offer it to people of every income level. Lots of gun training is expensive. Front Sight makes it possible for people with normal jobs (like myself) to get better gun training than even the most expensive places out there.

The Second Amendment grants us the right to bear arms… but along with that right comes responsibility. Front Sight will help you make the responsible decision of getting gun training and getting your family trained. Let’s do our part to keep America safe. Let’s get gun training and really know how to use a gun for self defense, instead of just owning one because we can.

Front Sight: How to Use a Gun… And How Not To

March 10th, 2011

There are so many people out there who are apprehensive about gun training. They do not want to own a gun, think that guns should be illegal and/or hate the idea of them in general. However, no matter how anti gun you may be, the fact remains that a gun can be a superior tool of self defense in a number of situations. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute can give you the gun training that you need to stay safe, even if you totally despise weapons.

I hate the idea of robbing a bank. But as much as I hate it and even though robbing a bank is illegal, bank robberies still happen. It is a gross thing to rape someone and I am thoroughly against it. That, too, is illegal. Yet, rapes still occur. Think of all the things that are currently illegal that people still do. Kidnapping, doing drugs, turning on red while ignoring the “No Turn On Red” sign… they all break the law, but we see them happen every day. If guns were illegal, do we really think that bad guys would stop using them? No… the innocent, law abiding citizens would get rid of their guns, leaving them more vulnerable and prone to attack because the bad guys would still have guns. What we need to do is secure ourselves good gun training, so we know how to safely use a gun, instead of just shying away from them in general.

You may not be comfortable with using a gun. But did you know that there is gun training available at Front Sight that will teach you how to not use a gun? This means two things. One, the gun training instructors at Front Sight will teach you the correct way to use a gun, and the wrong way to use it, so there is no question in your mind how to safely handle a gun. They show you what not to do, as well as exactly what to do, so your gun handling techniques can develop into flawless perfection.

The second thing it means is that the gun training instructors at Front Sight actually train you in how to NOT use a gun… meaning how to get out of using a gun and how to avoid using a gun. Founder and director of Front Sight, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, knows that guns offer an incredible sense of self defense, but they are not the only way out of a tricky situation. The gun training courses at Front Sight challenge your mind into deciding when is the right time for you to warn your attacker that you have a gun and will use it, and when is the right time to actually shoot, verses when is the right time to exit the situation in another manner, without presenting your weapon. Ignatius Piazza wants you to know that just because you HAVE a gun, doesn’t mean you have to USE it. It is only there for a last resort, to use in a situation that you cannot escape otherwise. Front Sight will train you heavily on this, because gun safety is their number one priority.
