    Great information today Michael. You are the best, hardest working sumbitch I know! I appreciate your musical portions as well. I had never heard of Rosalie Sorrels–added her to my iTunes library after listening to her on your show. Keep up the good work but hey, it’s OK to take a day off now and then. I want you around for the long haul.

    If you do call with your cell phone do not do not have it in your hand waving it around when law enforcement arrives. That provoked a deadly response locally.

    thank you for your info on erick scott . i dont watch the news much here in north nevada. some of the info you talked about in your podcast is verry similar to what card counters like myself have endured for years. if your interested in how we handle management and security and the law check out some of the blackjack books on cardcounting, verry similar. next time in reno and bored i know where that range is let me know ill shoot with you.

    I think that the problem that will hurt us the most is that assumption that we are at fault for letting others see a firearm on our person.

    Perhaps, with the rise in open carry, we will loose some of our societal ignorance and have less morons out there calling the cops on people going about their daily business, that happen to have a firearm on their person.

    I equate it to calling the cops on someone because they are “insert minority here” and they are going to come and “insert horrible stereotype crime here” me.

    Once a situation has escalated, you are right, but hiding in the shadows worked real well for people of a gay persuasion, huh?

    good topic as always, michael. I do however reject the premise that the Scott incident will be properly investigated in Las Vegas. Fox and henhouse. Hope I’m wrong for all of us.

    Mr. Bane. As a fairly new concealed carrier, I appreciate the information you provided in this podcast. It was very informative and educational. Thank you.

    From a retired police detective; Excellent monologue on what to do when confronted! You are right on target with your advice.

    Keep up the good work. Thanks for keeping us informed on all the stupid things that go on around the US.

    Great show. It would be really helpful if your “rules” for this type of situation were available for download/copy.

    Like too many cases, this is a situation where the police acted “according to department policy” and killed an innocent civilian doing nothing wrong. And they will determine that it was within department policy and nothing will change. Like no knock warrants, like the practice of stepping out into the general direction of a vehicle’s travel and then shooting the driver claiming he was trying to run the officer over. Like picking confrontational situations to make arrests. Like officers in unmarked vehicles, out of uniform, with no marked cars or uniformed officers present, accosting someone waving guns and screaming at the top of their lungs. Like staging those no knocks at 3am to maximize disorientation. It’s all great if the person IS a criminal, but if the reasonable response for me, as an innocent man, will get me KILLED, then the policy is wrong.
