Second Call Defense

Do you have a situation where you almost needed SCD?

Everything you do is to protect yourself and your family. Whether it’s house insurance, car insurance or carrying a firearm. After a house fire, you’ll rebuild. After a car accident, you’ll get a new car. After a self defense incident make sure you are there to help them pick up the pieces and not rotting in a jail cell. It’s not always as simple as it would seem. Why risk it?

Talk about the lady that fires at a purse snatcher.

Going Ballistic with Savage1r (News/Politics/Etc.)

  1. Dianne Feinstein and Peter King want anyone on an extra judicial terrorist watch list to be banned from owning guns. FU Harry Reid.
  2. Purdue Homeland Security researcher’s simulations conclude armed citizens can stop mass shooters.
  3. 60 days after Los Angeles hi-cap mag ordinance passed, zero magazines turned in.
  4. Breaking news: obama signs ndaa, is now basically pro gun

User feedback and user questions

Name Spencer
Last In Smyrna
Subject Surprised Savage didn’t know this
Message From a couple of weeks back, Savage seemed a little non-plussed when one of the officers mentioned he had seen people he knew weren’t legal buying a gun from a private seller at a gun show.
He did mention that it was a drop-in-the-bucket, but I was kind of surprised when Savage didn’t bring up the old but still definitive study in the link. It shows just how few criminals actually get guns at gun shows… .07%.
A more recent study in Chicago showed why. Criminals get guns from trusted sources (i.e. other criminals) to avoid stings by law enforcement or just being turned in by honest citizens (second link).
Thanks again for the great show. And seriously, when are you guys going to release those ringtones of Lil-isms? I’m dying to setup my system monitoring pages so when a server croaks on me I get an alert of Lil shouting “Hey M-Fer!”.
