Quiz: How To Safely Unload A Semi-Auto Handgun?

Quiz: How To Safely Unload A Semi-Auto Handgun?

Knowing how to safely handle and unload a semi-automatic handgun is not rocket science. However, as we have learned recently, if basic fundamental firearm safety rules are not obeyed, a very tragic incident can result.

This blog post entry was inspired by a recent media report in which a law enforcement officer, while dressed in his uniform, who went to a local gun and promptly shot off a finger with a .380 caliber pistol. Several errors were made.

The ultimate irony in the aforementioned incident is that anti-gun advocates frequently assert that only police officers should possess firearms. Whereas I do not seek to discredit the gun handling skills of law enforcement, I am making the point that anybody can have a negligent discharge if he does obey basic safety precautions when handling a firearm.

Do you know how to safely handle and unload a semi-automatic handgun? Which of the following is the best answer?

A. Simply Remove The Magazine 
B. Point It In A Safe Direction and Pull The Trigger
C. Point It In A Safe Direction And Then Remove The Magazine 
D. Point It In A Safe Direction, Remove The Magazine, And Unchamber Round (If Present)
E. Point It In A Safe Direction, Unchamber Round (If Present), And Remove Magazine 
F. Point It In Safe Direction, Keep Finger Off Trigger, Unchamber Round (If Present), and Remove Magazine 
G. Point It In A Safe Direction, Keep Finger Off Trigger, Remove Magazine, and Unchamber Round (If Present)
H. Point It In A Safe Direction, Keep Finger Off Trigger, Remove Magazine, Unchamber Round (If Present), And Inspect Chamber.

Gun Rights As A Litmus Test For Friendship Compatibility

In a speech I delivered last week, I talked about friendship. At this point in my life, I have significantly more friends than I had several years ago. It is safe to say that just 10 years or so ago, that I did not have many friends.

When I say "friends" I do not mean people with whom I am merely connected to on social media. Rather, I specifically mean folks whom I may have met online - or not - but have actually met, broke bread with, and see regularly - both locally and nationally. They are folks whom I truly enjoy seeing - again and again.

A genuine friendship, as I see it, is a relationship upon which is based on mutual respect and trust. Among the many people I sincerely count as friends, every demographic is present. To be my friend, the following are NOT relevant: race, gender, age, sexual orientation, political party, or religious affiliation.

The accidentally discovered litmus test is gun rights. If you trust me with a firearm and won't try to take it away, you can be my friend. As your friend, I will trust you and respect you, as well. I can't say that about everybody that I know.


Check out a video excerpt of my speech before the Birmingham-Bloomfield Republicans:

Civilian Lethal Force and Self-Defense Seminar - Detroit Michigan - Sat. Feb. 21rst, 2015


Lethal Force and Self-Defense Legal Seminar: Laws Every Gun Owner Must Know
Legally Armed In Detroit and the Law Office of Terry Johnson have announced the date of this year's lethal force and self defense seminar. The four hour seminar will be held on Saturday, Feb. 21rst, 2015 at 9am.
This seminar is only offered once per year. Early-bird tuition is only $99 - Seating is limited and it fills up fast! RSVP now!http://rick9mm.eventbee.com/event?eid=127629564
INTENDED AUDIENCE
- Persons with firearms in the home to be used for home defense.
- Persons with CPLs who carry handguns for self-defense.
- Persons in law enforcement who wish to deepen their knowledge of gun law.
- Persons desiring to know more about the law before buying a firearm.
- Persons who report stories in the media and seek to be more accurate.
- Person who Open Carry Without A CPL
Course Topics
This seminar will cover the laws that every gun owner must know. In-depth coverage of Lethal Force Use, Defensive Firearm Use, CPL Law, Open Carry, and Preparing your legal strategy in the aftermath of a shooting incident.
In contrast, the legal info in a conforming and legit CPL Class is only an hour long. If you toss in the fact that some of the providers of this info are either unqualified to present it or, as in the case of law enforcement officers, you will receive either bad info or info that does not inform you of your rights.
For example, how many law enforcement instructors will tell you to not make a statement to them until you have talked to a lawyer? Very few. How many times have you heard a police officer say that can't open carry if you have a CPL? If the only legal knowledge you have about lethal force came from your CPL Class, there is a great chance that there is much you need to know before you are ever forced to defend yourself.
After the seminar, you will understand the pertinent legal issues behind the biggest lethal force and self defense cases from the local headlines in the media:
- Elijah Woody Open Carry Case
- The Detroit Santa Claus Shooting
- The MO Mike Brown Case
- The NY Eric Gardner Case
- The Dearborn Heights Tim Wafer/Renisha McBride Case
- The Detroit Adaisha Miller Fish-Fry Shooting
- The Detroit Jason Weekly/Ayanna Jones Case
- The Florida George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin Case
No one looks forward to using lethal force in a self-defense event. However, your safety, security, and freedom would be best served by knowing the law before you are forced to defend yourself, your family, and your home.
Many folks quoted in the media often provide bad and erroneous info. This bad info could lead to criminal charges, a conviction, incarceration, and a civil judgement against you.
The best defense you can mount is not being charged in the first place for ensuring your safety and the safety of your family. A serious criminal case could easily cost thousands of dollars, loss of time from work, and unbearable stress associated with the lack of certainty about your future. This seminar can save you time, money, and your future.
STUDENT REVIEWS FROM LAST YEAR
"I attended the 2014 Lethal Force Seminar presented by Rick's Firearm Academy.Initially I had thought attending the seminar would just be a "rubber-stamp" documenting my knowledge of Michigan and Federal Firearms law as I had attended numerous NRA Basic Personal Protection In The Home Courses at my local gun club with the legal portion of the classes presented by our county Head Prosecutor. I humbly ate my portion of crow as I filled numerous notebook pages of notes regarding nuances of the "Stand Your Ground" and "Castle Doctrine" laws not covered by my previous courses. While not required by law, responsible CPL holders should educate themselves about the laws pertaining to the lawful carry of firearms and the use of deadly force. The use of deadly force does not end with the discharge of a firearm. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. I would highly recommend anyone choosing to obtain a CPL and carrying a handgun to attend this seminar." ~ Ron Howard
"I enjoyed last years, it was very informative, I'm going to check my calendar for this years as well." ~ Jeff Barello
"Already have a CPL? Not sure if you want to get a CPL? Want to learn in more detail about laws on lethal force and self defense in Michigan? I took this class and it is VERY informative. Worth it to know in advance of needing to know the law!" ~ Denise Abraham Flinders
"Rick's Lethal Force seminar is a great second class to take after getting your CPL. The class really offers an in-depth look at what happens and what you should and should not do after you are required to use lethal force. This is a must have class for anyone who carries a firearm daily, and takes their person protection very seriously. Personal protection isn't just during the life threatening situation, but it's knowing what to do after the fact. This class will teach you what you need to know and give you more peace of mind." ~ John Roehrig
"Excellent program. Very plain to understand and informative. I'm considering taking it again this year if I can find the some spare money. I'm sure Mr Ector will have an even better program put together this year." ~ Gary Pawlowski
"Rick Ector and Terry Johnson deliver expert information using current news events, related to home & personal defense. They presented the topics in a way that everyone in the class could relate to. It is time & money well spent, that may just one day save your life, and keep you out of prison. I will attend again this year." ~ Boomer Qureshi
"I attended this seminar last year, and found it to be incredibly informative, very well presented and even entertaining. Rick and Terry made everything easy to understand and presented it in an enjoyable format. I heartily recommend it for anyone who has a CPL or is thinking of getting a CPL. Also good information for anyone who keeps a gun 'around the house.'" ~ Dennis Oakes
"I attended the Lethal Force and Self-Defense Legal seminar in 2014. Rick and Terry try to keep it fun and will offer plenty of information for you to digest. There will be plenty of time for questions and to go through scenarios. Even if you know some of the laws there will be information you probably do not know. I fully recommend this seminar. You will come out freshly reviewed and a bit more educated so you are not that person to drag them into the house. Please do not be that person." ~ Charles Vamos, Jr.

Please Do Not Bring In The New Year With Celebratory Gunfire!

Detroit, Michigan –-(LegallyArmedInDetroit.com)- It is officially New Year’s Eve and citizens all over our great nation are gearing up to embrace the dawn of a brand new year.

Some are making plans to go out and be social at a bar while others are quite content to stay at home and watch “The Ball” drop in NYC’s Times Square on TV.

Regardless of the plans being made, there is a dangerous practice that will be performed tonight in cities from coast to coast that will unnecessarily place many in harm’s way – celebratory gunfire. 

On this night in Detroit – and in other populous cities such as Chicago, Cleveland, Las Vegas, Baltimore, and others – you will typically hear the clarion calls by local public safety officials in the media urging their respective citizens to not “ring in” the new year with gunfire aimed at the sky.

Personally, I also think that celebratory gunfire, at least in Detroit, is more of a liberty that some people take to make a dramatic announcement that their home is not safe to invade or burgle down the road than it is a celebration of a new year. However, make no mistake about it, anyone who engages in the practice of celebratory gunfire is an idiot. The discharged bullets have to come down somewhere. As a child growing up in Detroit, I had often heard a popular idiom that drives home why celebratory gunfire is so perilous: “Bullets don’t have names on them.”

A stray slug may end someone’s life almost as soon as a new year is starting. 

Thus, I implore all of you reading this article to not shoot your firearms at the sky in celebration of the upcoming year. In all, be safe, be aware, and be armed. Hopefully, I will see you all safely into 2015.

Rick Ector to Address the Birmingham/Bloomfield Republican Club

On Wednesday evening on the date of January 14th, I will be guest speaking before the Birmingham/Bloomfield Republicans on the subject of gun rights. The subject is near and dear to me. I embraced my Constitutionally recognized right to keep and bear arms in the aftermath of being robbed in my driveway about ten years ago. It will be a great event.

Please save the date and give strong consideration to attending. I would love to see you in the building! True story.

Does The Majority of Black America Now Look Favorably On Guns For Self-Defense?

Does The Majority of Black America Now Look Favorably On Guns For Self-Defense?

Earlier today, I was interviewed on the Gun Owners of America (GOA) "Lock-N-Load Podcast Show" with host Bill Frady. On two segments, we discussed the results and ramifications of a recent Pew Poll that showed that Black America's view on firearms for self-defense increased from 29 percent in 2012 to 54 percent in 2014.

The percentage increase (86 percent) is a remarkable jump and we felt that it warranted a discussion.

Rick Ector to Appear on "Black Man With A Gun Show!"

Rick Ector to Appear on "Black Man With A Gun Show!"

This week, I make a return visit to my friend's weekly podcast - Black Man With A Gun. Kenn Blanchard and I have been friends for several years, ever since I went to the Second Amendment Foundation's Gun Rights Policy Convention in KY back in 2007. 

It was because of Kenn's message in his weekly address that I felt sufficiently emboldened to drive down to KY and attend my first gun rights conference. So, I am always honored when he asks me to be on his show. It should be a great show. I will post the link, when the show is live. 

In the meanwhile, check out some of his recent broadcasts:http://blackmanwithagun.com/

Guns and Kids: Preventing Tragedies in the Home Seminar - Saturday, Nov. 30th, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

What Would Your Kid Do (If He Found An Unattended Firearm)?

What Would Your Kid Do (If He Found An Unattended Firearm)?

It's Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend - 2014. School is out and you have time off from work. Your family is bustling with activity: making travel plans, planning the big dinner, and wondering if the Lions are going to lose another nationally televised game.

Your sibling with children the same age as yours offers to babysit for a night. Your child packs a bag and goes to a sleep-over. Your child and your sibling's child play a litany of games including Hide-and-Seek. Your child looks under a bed and sees an unattended and loaded firearm. What Would Your Kid Do?

Have you even talked to your child about firearms? Maybe you don't even like guns, don't own any, and don't have any plans to buy any. Maybe you even shared your disgust with them to your child. Maybe your child is curious about firearms. Or rather, maybe your child doesn't think about them at all UNTIL he is looking at one unattended under a bed.

Your child may come across a firearm one day even if you don't own one. In short, I am suggesting that you talk to your child about guns. However, maybe you don't know much about them. Further, you might not have a clue as to how best to approach the subject. Some people think that if they talk to their kids about a topic that exchange may be enough to encourage curiosity.

Ignorance kills. Don't believe me? I read a few local stories over the last month or so about how a few young children came across unattended guns in a home. In each case, the child was injured. One, managed to kill himself.

Alternatively, you might actually be a gun owner. You bought the gun for home defense and personal protection. You may or may not have a concealed pistol license. In either case, you still are responsible for knowing firearm safety, for safeguarding your guns from unauthorized users, and being able to balance the aforementioned concerns with accessibility just in case someone dares to invade your home while you and your family are there.

If you have children. You need to talk to them about guns. You also need to do a bunch of other things. The right to keep and bear arms comes with a lot of responsibility. A big one, of course, is not allowing your child to shoot himself.

This Saturday, November 29th, we will be conducting a seminar to address the subject of guns and kids: firearm safety, firearm education, firearm storage, and firearm law. We will cover everything you need to know about being a responsible gun owning parent.

Make plans to join us. The seminar is only three hours long and only costs $29. Attendance is limited, so register early.

Parents are encouraged to also register a child to come along with them.

The program will be conducted on Saturday, Nov. 29th, 2014 at 10am at the L.A.D.S. (downtown) at address 613 Abbott Street, Detroit, MI - Plenty of free parking is available.

Ask The Michigan Firearm Instructor: Is Dyslexia a Mental Illness That Can Disqualify A CPL?

Ask The Michigan Firearm Instructor: Is Dyslexia a Mental Illness?


Q: Rick, Will being diagnosed with dyslexia disqualify me for a CPL?

A. First and foremost, I am not a mental health professional who is the only person that can make a diagnosis of a mental illness. 

However, as I understand it, dyslexia is a developmental learning disorder and is not a "mental illness." Of course, I am not a doctor and neither are the members of the county gun boards. If you are denied for a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) because you have been diagnosed with having dyslexia, I would strongly urge you to hire a lawyer and to consider appealing the denial.

- Terry Johnson, a local attorney with a specialty in Firearm Law, will be providing a primer on the legalities and the responsibilities of having a gun in the home.
- Q & A
