Ep. 710 – Guns for Groceries?

Trading guns for groceries? Seriously? Yes, the Democrat mayor of St. Louis, Missouri has a new solution to the city’s murder epidemic; bribe criminals with free groceries. We wish we were joking about this.

Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question related to both quiet time and situational awareness. Professor Paul and Jarrad will consider how to enjoy peace and quiet while being ready to fight.

Also, Student of the Gun does not require YouTube approval to operate. We will talk about why exactly that is the case.

Ep. 712 – Brainwashing your Kids & Guns Destroy the Universe

Would the progressive left resort to brainwashing your kids into believing guns are evil? Listen to the words of Eric Holder and consider the current state of affairs in our schools.

We know that guns are dangerous tools, but do they have the power to destroy the universe? According to one community leader in California, that is exactly the case. We will let you judge for yourself.

During our Fighting Fitness segment from SWAT Fuel, Jarrad and Paul discuss earning your light day and Jarrad has an early Christmas gift for you; the Barbell Training Tracker. Be sure to listen louder.

Ep. 713 – Turning Guns into Garden Tools

Here is a new idea, turn guns into garden tools. That is the proposal in New York. Take firearms surrendered during state-sponsored “buyback” programs and melt them down for garden tools. Will that really keep us safe from criminal thugs and terrorists?

During our SOTG Homeroom, we share a story from Atlanta, Georgia. The Hartsfield-Jackson Airport lost power for nearly 12 hours, many passengers were completely unprepared. We will consider personal preparedness and the 4 categories of gear you should never be without.

Ep. 713 Pt. 2 – Army Thinks Marine Corps Standards are Too Tough

It seems that an Army Colonel has a problem with the standards that the Marine Corps has established for its officer candidates. What exactly is this chicken whining about?  Paul will have something to say about it.

We have a public school psychological school terrorism report for you. One Massachusetts high school has taken offense at the use of the term “freshman”. Yes, this is the country we are living in now.

Remember the Philadelphia City Councilwoman who said that bullet-proof glass was offensive? Well, we have a follow up on that story. Liberalism is indeed a mental disease.

Never fear, we have some Christmas music for you. Paul will open up and share a special Christmas memory for you from his youth. Enjoy and Merry Christmas to all.
