Rick Ector Discusses the Ossian Sweet Case on the Home Defense Show with Skip Coryell

Rick Ector Talks the Ossian Sweet Case on Home Defense Show


Earlier this week, a huge announcement was made in the city of Detroit that the home of Dr. Ossian Sweet was going to be turned into a public exhibit. I welcomed the news but hated that a couple of gun-hating public figures were part of
that press release.

As I explained to my followers, it is a disservice to the memory of Dr. Sweet to have folks who hate your guns to announce that the man, who was prosecuted for defending his residence, was being lauded by gun control proponents.

When modern day supporters of gun control show up for a photo in front of the Ossian Sweet House in Detroit, they are calling you ignorant. 

Dr. Ossian Sweet defended his home from over 100 racists and was arrested, charged, tried, but exonerated. His "not guilty" verdict was the impetus behind the Michigan Firearms Act of 1927. It was designed to keep black people from being able to protect their homes from racists. 

So, when you see anti-gun politicians standing in front of the Sweet Home for a picture, they are playing on your lack of knowledge about your history. You have been insulted and you don't even know it. Sad.

Listen to this interview I had earlier today with Skip Coryell on his "Home Defense" podcast about the racist roots of gun control in the city of Detroit.

Rick Ector's Michigan CPL Class - Saturday, August 25th - Tuition $149 - 10am

Rick Ector's Michigan Concealed Pistol License (CPL) Class - Saturday, August 25th - Tuition $149 - 10am

We are pleased to announce our next Michigan Concealed Pistol License CCW/CPL Class!

Class DATE: Saturday, August 25th, 2018 - RSVP NOW

If you have a desire to qualify for a Concealed Pistol License (CPL), so that you will become safe, register for our next class.


Everyone claims to be the best. I am going to show you why we are the best.

Our classroom sizes are limited to ensure a proper learning environment. You will be comfortable asking questions that are most pertinent to your situation. We understand that being stuffed in a sardine can with 50 other students leaves much to be desired.

Our legal module is taught by a credible practicing criminal defense attorney. The legal module will NOT consist of an attorney - who never actually practiced law - lecturing on your duties, rights, and responsibilities under the law on a DVD.


Your safety and freedom deserve much better. Other providers, if they teach the law at all, only offer up their unprofessional and untested opinions. Our attorney is also a regular subject matter expert featured on the news and local talk shows.

I daily receive phone calls from students who took the $50 classes and short-changed themselves. The irony is that is that instead of calling their original trainer, they end up calling me. By this time, all I can do is refer them to competent counsel and hope that the amount of trouble they get into is minimized.
You have a choice: pay just a little more now for a superior class or pay a ton more later.


We provide one-on-one shooting supervision in the shooting booth. We understand that you need expert instruction on the safe operation of a pistol from a whisper away. Unlike the others, we do not have one instructor who watches five students on the range at the same time. We are right there with you each and every step along the way to ensure that you are safe while learning.

Finally, our Chief Instructor actually teaches the class. He does not rely upon the playing of out-of-date and boring DVDs as a substitute for quality and up-to-date instruction. Our training is a 100 percent live and entertaining presentation which ensure that you fully grasp and understand the material well after you leave the classroom. My students see for themselves how fast the GroupOn classes are over before we reach the half-way point of our class.

Our Chief instructor has been training citizens, such as yourself, for over ten years with a 100 percent safety record. We are especially adept at training first-time shooters, women, and seniors. We are not fly-by-night operators. We have seen many training providers come and go over the last decade.

Only quality Instructors have staying power. We are here for the long haul. So, if you ever have a need for follow-up, you know that you can find us - even if it is five years later.

If you want the best instruction, you have to be taught by the best. You deserve it, your family deserves, and your safety at home and out in the streets requires it. Don't be penny-wise and pound foolish with your safety. Go with the best. Me.

When my students call me, they are referring family members and friends to take our class. When graduates from other training classes call me, they were failed by their instructors and need serious legal help. Get it done right the first time.

Rick Ector Speaks at Councilman Tate's Gun Violence Forum

Rick Ector Speaks at Councilman Tate's Gun Violence Forum

It was my honor to participate in Councilman Tate's panel discussion on Gun Violence last night.

I shared my experiences about being an armed robbery victim in my own driveway. It was that event that led me to become a NRA certified firearm Instructor. My victimization has let to the training of many of our fellow citizens take a more active role in their personal protection.

I also had an opportunity to talk about my annual community service event that trains women how to operate a handgun. This year's event led to 700 women learning how to safely discharge a 9mm semi-automatic handgun.

T
I had a great night.

Rick Ector Speaks at Detroit City Councilman's Forum on Gun Violence

Rick Ector Speaks at Detroit Councilman's Forum on Gun Violence

On Wednesday evening, August 15th, Rick Ector took part in a panel discussion in the city of Detroit. The discussion was organized by Mr. James Tate, a city councilman for District 1.

The name of Tate's organizing group is called the Community Accountability Network (C.A.N.). The forum discussion organized by C.A.N. was entitled "Gun Violence Prevention Community Forum."

The panel was comprised of a diverse body of speakers. Participants included a woman who lost her child to violence, a couple of reformed bad guys who turned their lives around, a medical doctor from a local hospital, a community program founder who fosters communication between crime victims and their victimizes, and me - a former crime victim who became a firearms instructor and gun rights advocate.

During my stint at the microphone I shared how I was robbed at gun-point and became a firearm instructor in the aftermath. In addition I also shared how my annual program for women, which trains ladies how to operate handguns, had grown from an initial group of 50 ladies to almost 700 ladies in this annual event.

After the short speeches, there was a short Q&A with the audience. I fielded a question from a guy who was not a fan. I gave him "my take" on his comments. The event was taped, so I hope to have a link to post soon.

I love community service events. I hope that I get invited to be a part of more in the future.

Local News Media Covers John James Political Event in Detroit

The local news media - Fox 2 Detroit - covered a campaign appearance event for gubernatorial candidate John James.

I was in attendance and so was the news media.

John James is a veteran, a good communicator, and black.

I believe that he is an excellent candidate. The incumbent is shaking in her boots.

If you check out the news media link, you can view a news clip on the campaign appearance. You might even see your truly - me - Rick Ector - in the clip!

Rick Ector Appears on "Let It Rip Weekend" to Discuss Self-Defense and Gun Rights

Rick Ector appeared on "Let It Rip Weekend" on Sunday, July 29th, 2018 to debate two topics regarding firearms. Other invited guests on the panel included Michigan State Representative Sherry Gay-Dagnogo, Attorney Jim Makowski, and DPS Community District member Lemar Lemons.

In the first segment, the debate focused on a recent Clearwater, Florida shooting in which a dispute over a handicapped parking space led to a 28 year old man shoving a 48 year old man to the ground. The older man, reportedly fearing for his life, shot the aggressor and shortly thereafter died.

The second segment of the talk show featured a discussion on the subject of guns no longer being able to be brought into schools in Michigan.

The third segment featured the show guests responding to questions from the viewing public.

Check out the videos and leave feedback.
