Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals

Concealed Carry and Home Defense Fundamentals is a comprehensive course for anyone considering owning or carrying a firearm for self-defense.

The course is a complete guide to understanding conflict avoidance and situational awareness; handgun, shotgun, AR-15, and ammunition basics; defensive shooting fundamentals; the physiology of violent encounters; the legal aspects of using deadly force (including knowing what to do in the aftermath); and a complete guide on gear, gadgets, and ongoing training.

Countering the Mass Shooter Threat

This course analyzes data gathered from 48 mass shootings that have occurred since Columbine to determine what can be learned from these tragedies, including whether a reduction in magazine capacity or the banning of any class of firearm, would have changed the outcome.

It also looks at whether gun-free zones impact the planning of these mass murderers, whether victim response at any mass shooting has made a difference and whether universal background checks or other proposals by gun control advocates stand a chance of stemming the current trajectory of these shootings.
