From David K: Concerning your lack of inability to have a gun in Maryland; the state has no right or jurisdiction to overrule your Constitutional Rights. What needs to be done is to own a gun, challenge the local authorities, and hope an officer shows up and seizes the gun. Sue the enforcer in federal court for violation of your Federal Rights and take massive monetary compensation. There are 3 Supreme Court decisions, 1 Federal agent, 1 State agent, and 1 municipal agent that all allow monetary damages from the enforcers. Then regardless of unconstitutional laws there will be no enforcers. The legislators, councils all leave the enforcers without cover for enforcement of unconstitutional laws.
Answer: As long as you can afford the legal costs and are willing to take that risk, then do it. I know legal costs can be a fortune and most people won’t be able to afford to do it this way. Personally, I’d just vote with my feet and move.
From Ben S: I’m in 10th grade and I’ve always dreamt about going into the CIA in life. It has always interested me and your book brought that interest out of me even more. I’m not sure if this will get answered by the man himself Jason Hanson but I would like some clarity on a few things. One thing I would like to ask is what do I need to do to set myself up to get into the CIA? What preparations do I need to make to get myself on the right track? Overall I just want to be set on the right path to join the CIA, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
Answer: The #1 thing I recommend for those interested in joining the CIA is to stay out of trouble. Even though we all make mistakes in high school, do your best to stay out of trouble and get good grades. So, don’t do drugs, don’t steal anything, don’t drink alcohol underage. Next, the Agency takes people with a variety of backgrounds. Some have college degrees and some come from the military without a degree. So, go to college or have a military background. Also, the most important thing is to get your Top Secret Security Clearance anyway you can. This might mean joining another Agency first and eventually transferring to the CIA.
From William M: With all the different types of available lights and varying methods of attaching them to shotguns, which do you prefer when it comes to nighttime home defense? Thanks again for all the timely information and quality products you bring to our attention.
Answer: I personally use a handgun for home defense and I attach a laser/light combination to it. The one I use is made by Viridian. If you use a shotgun, consider a light attachment made by Surefire. (This is what I have on my Remington 870.) When it comes to gun accessories never go cheap on them, as you want to make sure they will work when you need them most.
From Gary S: Thank you so much for the great class a few weeks ago. I had a great time and learned much building my own AR. I greatly appreciate your class and field day. What a wonderful and memorable experience.
Answer: Thank you for your kind words. We enjoyed having you attend our Underground AR-15 Build class. It was a wonderful group of patriotic Americans who learned a valuable skill and walked away with a world class AR-15. We would love to have you join us in the future for more of our classes.
From Laura R: I’m a newbie with guns but am starting to see I need one for defense. Would you recommend a Walther PPK for a woman?
Answer: I would not recommend that gun, it’s not super reliable. If you were looking for a smaller gun I would check out the Glock 19, Sig Sauer P238, or Ruger LCP. Also, I highly recommend going to your local gun shop and trying out all of the guns you’re interested in, to see which one feels best before buying anything. The thing is, you need to find the right gun that fits your hand and that you can comfortably shoot.
From Bill B: I called Dixie Gun Worx a week ago and ordered what I needed for the AR-15 Rifle Build class. The guy at Dixie suggested I use their .223 reloads. He indicated many going to this workshop have used them and with great success (very few jams etc.). So the question is – Is Jason back up the claim that these Dixie Reloads for the .223 will be fine for the day of shooting?
Answer: Absolutely, as everyone knows, .223 rounds can get expensive so if you purchase ammo from them you’ll be good to go.
