How the AR-15 Forward Assist Saved Kyle Rittenhouse’s Life

All the Gun Boards, especially Arfcom are blowing up over this topic right now. 🤣

Keyboard Warriors and Sofa Ninjas arguing with each other about how Rittenhouse actually used (or should have used) the Charging Handle versus the Forward Assist and vice versa?

My 2 cents: Regardless of how it went down, In the realm of the OODA Loop, this is some pretty amazing shit for a 17 year old kid under severe STRESS!

If the gun was out of battery that is what the Forward Assist is there for.

I will tell you this from experience: This is the result of GOOD TRAINING and a SHITLOAD of LUCK!

So let’s all take our Lead from Kyle Rittenhouse:

 

TRAIN HARD and REALISTICALLY!

Lessons from Four Carjackings: Learning How to Stop Them

Refuse to be a Victim!

2nd Camera Angle

From Mexico: Two motorcycle banditos try to do a quick “Stop and Rob” on the guy in the white car but the INTENDED victim had other plans.

He does the right thing by Accelerating out of the Kill Zone but then decides to go a step further and tries to take out the trash TWICE!

A good reminder that when you are behind the wheel of a vehicle never forget that Two Ton Rolling piece of metal and plastic you are driving TRUMPS the firearm you may have with you in the event you are attacked! Use it! Stomp on the Gas!

 

“If Violent Crime is to be curbed it is only the intended victim who can do it. The felon does not fear the police,  and he fears neither judge nor jury. Therefore he must be taught to fear his victim.” -Jeff Cooper

 

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

 

Being on the Defense Versus Being on the Attack

WATCH: Woman Opens Fire, Shoots Attackers in Pennsylvania Walmart

 

This incident is a good lesson to Armed Citizens everywhere.

First, it is important to point out that although the MULTIPLE attackers were UNARMED, legally, a person has the right to use DEADLY FORCE when they are OUTNUMBERED or a DISABILITY or AGE puts them at a Disadvantage. This is called DISPARITY OF FORCE.

Secondly, In the litigious society in which we live, it is not enough to PROVE you acted in Self-Defense, you must also PROVE that your COUNTER-ATTACK did not go past the point which is considered Legally Reasonable.

In the video you will see the Defendant fire numerous rounds at the attackers as they were FLEEING.

Can’t Do That.

As Armed Citizens, this is a VERY difficult situation to train for because of the chaos and adrenaline of combat.

Suffice to say it is better to learn from other peoples mistakes than make it Yourself.

That is called WISDOM!

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

Another California Migrant (Possible Illegal) Attacks Innocent Woman and is Killed by Cops

They never state whether the homeless “Transient” was an Illegal (PC Policing strikes again) but I will let you be the judge of that.

Personally, I would say 100% he is an illegal alien.

This was a tough situation to be put in from the perspective of the cop, but before you pass judgement, put yourself in their shoes.

WHAT IF that woman was your loved one and YOU had the gun? Would you chance the shot to try and save her life from this maniac? Of course you would, absolutely. That is why the Armed Citizen needs to practice hostage shoot scenarios regularly. Remember this story from Texas?

As far as this incident, sometimes there are no happy endings in the real world folks.

 

Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous!
