What are your thoughts on Red Flag laws? Would a Veteran with PTSD have a good chance of being the first ones to have their weapons taken from them?
-From Erick T.
Answer: Red flag laws are no doubt a form of gun control. Basically, these are state laws that allow police or even family members to petition a court to remove firearms from a person.
The person petitioning the court must show the judge evidence of why the guns should be taken away, such as if the person is a danger to themselves or others.
The bad thing with this law is that it can be abused. For example, a family member could be dishonest and cause someone to lose their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms.
These are very dangerous laws that will absolutely harms peoples’ freedoms.
I remodeled my house and installed entry doors with glass windows. My wife is worried that someone can break the glass and open the door. Do you know of any way to secure them? Other than putting bars on the window portion?
-From Lance P.
Answer: Many folks like the look of doors with glass windows but there is no doubt they are less secure. The problem is the window portion is weak and can easily be broken.
As for the glass, you can install security window films such as one from 3M that will help hold the glass in place. This won’t prevent the glass from breaking but it will make it more difficult to do so.
Lastly, I would install a security system with a glass break sensor. This sensor should be located near the door with the glass window so it can alert you if the glass is broken.
I enjoy your videos and I’m a new gun owner. My question is which eye do you use as your dominant aiming eye when shooting?
-From James B.
Answer: A lot of folks claim that shooting with both eyes open, especially at close distance, will give you the most accurate shot.
With that being said, any shooter is going to do what feels most comfortable and comes naturally to them, which often includes closing one eye.
About 80 percent of the world’s population is right-handed. However, about 65-70 percent of the population is right-eye dominant, with about 20-25 percent being left-eye dominant.
I shoot right-handed, but I am left-eye dominant. So, I close my right eye when I shoot, whether I am shooting with my strong hand or weak hand.
My point is, I would try shooting with both eyes open and then with closing each eye. Figure out what is most comfortable for you.
With the way the anti-gun movement is going I’ve decided to build a ghost gun. But I’m guessing the liberals won’t stop with taking away guns. Do you think they will try to track ammunition purchases?
-From Casey C.
Answer: You bring up a great point. No matter how many guns you own, you won’t be able to protect your family if you don’t have ammo.
California enacted a law not too long ago that requires anyone purchasing ammunition to undergo a background check with every purchase.
Those who don’t already have their information in the Department of Justice’s system for these point-of-sale screenings will have to pay up to $20 for an initial screening.
In addition, the law requires that all ammo purchases take place in person. Even online orders must be delivered to a licensed vendor for customer pick-up.
I wouldn’t be shocked if more liberal states try to create laws similar to California. This is one of the many reasons I recommend stockpiling ammo.
If you really want to get serious about stockpiling, I would have 10,000 rounds for the major calibers you own.
For me, this is .223 and 9mm. You can also get into reloading your own ammo.
My wife and I both work late shifts. We get off around 11 p.m. I’m worried that we may come home and it has been burglarized. If a door is kicked in, how do I clear the house to make sure no one is still inside?
-From Karl R.
Answer: First, it’s not the best idea to clear a home or any building with just one person. So, avoid it if at all possible, and call the police who will show up with multiple people to do it.
But, if you must do it by yourself, the key is to practice. So, shut off all your lights and practice clearing your house at night.
Obviously, you know the layout of your house, but the more you practice clearing your house, the better prepared you will be.
Don’t forget to take your time and to “slice the pie.” (Google it) And, when you enter a room, you’ve got to scan the entire room fast since you’re all by yourself and don’t have others taking certain parts of the room.
I would make sure you have an alarm system and if it ever goes off, let the police respond and do their job.
Is it true that there is a federal law that says you cannot conceal-carry a gun in a church even if you have a concealed permit?
-From Kat L.
Answer: Laws relating to concealed carry inside churches vary from state to state. But I have never heard about any federal law.
What I mean is, if the state requires you to have a concealed carry license, then it would apply to churches as well. You would need to follow the laws in your state related to churches.
With that being said, in most states, a private establishment such as a church can ban firearms from being on their property. Similar to a homeowner telling someone they can’t bring a gun into their home.
