Here’s the full transcript from the interview with USCCA:

Andy the Gun Guy 0:08
All right, everybody. Welcome to another live live interview with Andy the Gun Guy.

Today I

have an awesome guests that I’m super excited to talk to you. Today we’re going to be talking about concealed carry insurance. A lot of people have a lot of questions, especially in today’s day and age, about what’s going to happen if they have to use their firearm in self defense. So today, my special guest is Mike Bauer of the US CCA here to talk about firearm insurance, US law shield and a whole bunch of other stuff. Mike, thank you so much for joining today. Andy, I

Mike Bauer 0:42
couldn’t be more excited to be here. So quick background on me that you’ve asked for, you know, Mike Bauer, I’m the regional manager for our outside sales team. I’m located here in West Bend, Wisconsin. And ultimately, what I do day to day is I work with over 100 amazing people who go out and create very strong partnerships with ranges, retailers, and ultimately guys just like yourself, Andy, in order to be able to call it spread the gospel, the uscca, what we can do to truly help people in their self defense journey. So super, super excited to be here. And I really can’t wait to dive into things.

Andy the Gun Guy 1:15
Hey, hey, perfect, man. Perfect. So, you know, a lot of people you know, that are that are out there carrying? Right? You know, they feel that they feel an inherent sense. And and I’m guilty of this, too, we feel an inherent sense that we really trust the American legal system, right? We really support law enforcement, we really believe in the legal system, you know, so tell me, why is it that we would need concealed carry insurance because America has the best legal system in the world. And we feel inherently that we can trust it.

Mike Bauer 1:46
It was a great question that we get all the time. And I totally agree. You know, at the end of the day, the one thing that we have to understand, though, is that regardless of the exact place that we live, and the exact circumstances and and how the judicial system works, you know, at the end of the day, when there is a worst case scenario where someone needs to defend their own life, or that or the loved one or someone else, ultimately, they’re just going to have to prove that what they did, is justified. And what we see all the time, regardless of whether it’s a self act of self defense, or some other legal matter, you always need to make sure that you have some sort of professionals to help walk you through and guide you through that system. It’s not something that you want to go alone. If your house starts on fire. Yeah, you’ve got a fire extinguisher, you’re still going to call the fire department. Yeah, that’s, that’s

Andy the Gun Guy 2:34
a valid point. I mean, you know, I, when it comes to me cooking, I’ll tell you, I do have that fire extinguisher ready to go. And I’ve used it multiple times, it is a mess to clean up. But But I agree with that, you know, you know, just like we carry a gun, just in case we’re not carrying a gun, because we’re afraid of, you know, having a situation where we need to use the gun, we’re carrying the gun, the same reason that we’re wearing a seatbelt in our car, right? It’s, it’s, God forbid, that accident should occur, that seatbelt is an extra layer of protection. You know, of course, safety is number one. But that seatbelt there is is is really number two. And then of course, having car insurance on your vehicle is a wise thing. And again, we don’t have insurance on our vehicles, because we’re afraid that we’re going to get into an accident. We have it just in case of the worst case scenario. So you know, Michael, here in Florida, we enjoy special protections. And what I mean by that is, I’m just going to hit the share screen button here and share a little snippet of Florida statute that I think is a is a wonderful barrier to being, you know, sued in a court of law. Florida 776 dot 032 says, a person who uses or threatens use of force permitted in these couple of chapters is justified in such an as immune from criminal and civil action from the use or threatened use of force. Okay, so this is basically giving concealed carriers who are in the rights, protection from civil and criminal action. So why would a Floridian need us CCA if the law already protects us?

Mike Bauer 4:12
Yeah, absolutely. So number one, I’ll go back to regardless of where you’re at. The first thing we talked about is you still want to have that sort of legal counsel walking you through something if the police show up. The last thing that you want to do, we’re totally pro pro police. We back the badge and all that stuff, and I’m sure you do the same. But if something comes up and altercation comes up, you want to make sure that you have the right legal counsel just to walk you through it. And here’s the thing 776 point oh, three, two, that’s a great statute. I wish that type of thing happened. That was there in every single state but the way that Allen diamond and attorney top criminal defense attorney in Florida likes to put it look that that statute covers us for this little thin black line. That means if this person directly that came and attacked us, we are completely in 100% criminally cleared they can no longer come after us under certain implications. There’s two things that can come up, though. Number one, what about the fact of you know what happens if you miss your target? I heard certain people talk about what happens if that bullet goes through drywall or a window of the store next door, they’re going to look to recoup those losses, who do you think they’re going to come after? 776132 does nothing for you. Number two, the other thing is, have you ever Are you familiar with the expert witness? massada?

Andy the Gun Guy 5:31
You tell me.

Mike Bauer 5:32
So massada, you as a former law enforcement of 30 years, want to say retired in one and to now became one of the top expert witnesses for firearm self defense cases. Ultimately Think of it this way, if a top criminal defense attorney needs to bring someone in to say this is why a top tier training for police officers and civilian while you’re trying to act in a certain way, they’re calling someone like this guy, and he’s the number one go to to help talk about to someone on a jury who has never touched a firearm, why you would have pulled your firearm in that instance. And without going into the full details. Ultimately, there was a story where he was a expert witness on the civil side in Florida. There was someone broke into a home, the person who lived at that home grabs the first available tool to him which happens to be grandpa’s old hunting rifle, uses said rifle to defend himself. police show up police a while this isn’t this was absolutely 100% self defense, no charges no nothing. As a matter of fact, this was a rare instance, they didn’t even bring him in for questioning. Fast forward, this person is ultimately being sued by the attackers family for basically everything. And the reason why they ultimately landed in civil court in Florida. And the fact that Masada you had to be a part of it was specifically the fact because there were no charges that were brought forward, there was no momentum of closure on the criminal side. So it didn’t hold true that 7761032 until they got to court in civil court. Here’s the crazy thing. Andy, I thought of you talks about all of that sucks. This is a 14 year old, and a 14 year old can be tried as an adult in Florida. So again, that law is excellent. And I wish that it would hold 100% of the time, I wish it was in all 50 states. But we live in a black and white world of laws in a day to day very gray society. So again, at the end of the day, we hope you never need to use a lot of our services on the legal side. But when you do, you’re gonna be really happy that we’re there and someone’s there to help you out.

Andy the Gun Guy 7:28
I think that’s that’s a valid point. You know, the other thing that I that I understand is that even if a lawsuit is thrown out of court, or even if a lawsuit or a criminal action is ultimately, you know, you know, dropped, one of the problems that we face is that you could lose your life savings hiring an attorney, just to get to that that point, is that correct?

Mike Bauer 7:48
Absolutely. I, I spoke with a gentleman by the name of Dave McDermott in South, South Chicago just the other day and you know anything about South Chicago, it’s the place that you want to have your concealed carry license. On the unfortunate side, though, as well, if God forbid, you need to use anything and self defense, coming up with the $60,000 that it would cost to hire him is the type of conversation he has to have with people every single day. And he said, It’s unfortunate that these are people who are, you know, making minimum wage or just above it, and they’re just trying to defend themselves. And now he has to have the conversation of look, I’d love to help you out. But it’s going to cost you 60 grand, because I know how long this process is going to go. And when I met with him three weeks ago, he said, Mike, I just had that conversation with someone two days ago, the very next day, they scrounge up every dollar they could from all their friends and promise to pay them back. That’s a terrible thing to have to go through.

Andy the Gun Guy 8:37
I think that’s that’s a good point. So I I want to get into USCCA coverage and and how it works and everything like that. The first thing that a lot of people ask me when they you know, when I talk about USCCA they say, you know, I’ve got us law shield or you know, I’ve been to a US law shield seminar, you know, what is the difference between US law shield and USCCA.

Mike Bauer 8:58
Look, at the end of the day, we’re very happy that someone understands the idea of having some form of legal protection. And if that’s all you’re looking for, you know, certain programs with that, that are a prepaid legal type program that might work for somebody. But there’s a couple of things that I would just be aware of, regardless of the program, you’d go with. Number one, those types of programs. Very often You have no right to choose your attorney unless you’re paying out of pocket, meaning they’re the ones that are going to assign an attorney for you. And you know, again, without diving into details. Many of the attorneys that we work with simply say that if you’re being assigned an attorney, and you have no say in that for them, and as an attorney, it’s not a program that they’re interested in which you know, again, I’m not that professional, but if that’s what they’re looking at interesting to know. And then the other thing that I would just look at is every single program is always going to have some form of exclusions, what are things that none of none of these programs are obviously going to help you out. If you’re truly going out there and you’re robbing the bank. They never should. We’re not going to do that. Neither is anyone else. But it is unfortunate when you hear things like in 2000 In 18, one out of five murders, were committed by someone who had a intimate relationship with someone not necessarily a partner, maybe just a friend, a former roommate, and things like that. A lot of these programs have exclusions for those types of domestic violence incidents, which again, if you’re not aware that that happens, I have someone who is an instructor who works with us now who sold someone a membership in a different program other than ours, who had to defend ourselves from my boyfriend, ultimately had to go through the same process that we just talked about, but had to pay out of pocket, because it was a former boyfriend. And so that program did nothing to be able to help her out. And this instructor, ironically enough, was the first man on scene because he was also it worked for the sheriff’s office. So, you know, again, I hear from a lot of professionals out there, my job is not to tell someone what they should or shouldn’t do. But in a worst case scenario, just make sure that the person who you believe is going to have your back is upholding to the things that you want them to hold you to. And that’s what we’re here for.

Andy the Gun Guy 11:01
Wow. So one in five, I’m gonna repeat this for the people that didn’t hear that. So you’re saying that one in five murders happen between people who have some sort of relationship with the past. And there are some exclusions on some of these programs that will not protect you, in that situation, like a girlfriend that has an abusive or stalkerish ex boyfriend, he comes out or there’s an exclusion for her to protect yourself, even though she’s paid for this liability, protection, she she may not have access to it, right. And so

Mike Bauer 11:29
at the end of the day, all my my thing is, look, I totally appreciate that people are looking for some form of protection. And, you know, we haven’t even dived in any of the education and training we provide. But if we’re solely looking at that, at the end of the day, it’s you know, we truly believe as a as an organization, self defense and self defense and self defense, if someone’s there, and your fear and threat of you know, fear a great bodily harm. I know as a husband, and Father, I’m going to do whatever it takes. So if I’m solely relying on someone else, to help provide that legal and financial side, I just want to make sure that if I do whatever it takes, and I’m doing it an act of self defense it for all the right reasons, and I’m ultimately going to be justified, I want to make sure that the person who’s who’s heard I have in my wallet is actually going to be able to be there for me as well.

Andy the Gun Guy 12:13
Now, I think that’s huge. So let me ask you this, before we get into the actual pricing tiers, and how it all works, you know, what sort of situations will the USCCA cover one of its members?

Mike Bauer 12:21
You know, the big thing is, you know, we’re here for the responsibly armed Americans. And what we’re looking at is where you inactive self defense? Was it using a legal weapon of opportunity? Meaning was that thing that was in your hands, even if it was your own two fists, or whatever? Was that something you’re legally allowed to have? If I go down to Illinois, I can’t have a fully automatic ar 15. So if I’m acting in self defense, again, it doesn’t matter. So you just got to make sure that you have the tool that is appropriate. And And lastly, we are an American organization to service American. So the US and its borders are the ones that sorry, territories are what we’re going to be looking at.

Andy the Gun Guy 13:02
So you’ll actually protect people from liability and help them out with your program, even if they’re not using a firearm. Absolutely. Wow. Wow, that’s interesting. That’s interesting. So let’s talk about the different pricing tiers. You know, is there a page that I can pull up and share my screen that that shows the pricing? In fact, I’ve got I’ve got the seven reasons to join the US CCA on the screen. Maybe that’ll have it. I’ll scroll down to the bottom here. Yeah, it looks like I’ve got it looks like I’ve got the the tears here. So let me share my screen and kind of walk me through some of the different packages here.

Mike Bauer 13:38
Absolutely. So there’s a couple things that you’re looking at there. Ultimately, we like to keep things very, very simple. But we also want to make sure that we give people the opportunity to choose the pricing tier that works best for them, their financial situation, and where they’re at on their self defense journey. We’re currently in the process of revamping some of our membership and adding even more awesome thing, but as it sits right now, the really cool thing is we’ve got our gold or platinum and our leads. The main differences when it comes to what we’ve been talking about so far on the legal protection side, is the higher you go in the membership, the more legal protection is offered, ultimately, our elite level membership offers up to $2,250,000 in protection on the criminal and civil side, including damages, which is not something that we covered, there’s a lot of competitors that do not cover any civil damages. If and when you are charged with them. We definitely do so again, that’s another difference that we didn’t even

Andy the Gun Guy 14:32
Give me an example of a type of civil damage.

Mike Bauer 14:36
Absolutely. So we talked about that. That 14 year old gentleman earlier let’s say that, you know, ultimately there was a civil judgment. That was a you know, gavel comes down and you owe in certain number $15,000 $150,000 more whatever it is. At the end of the day, our membership offers the protection available for the damages that are awarded because a lot of times the attorneys are expensive and That’s a huge cost to someone. But more often than not, it’s the damages that are awarded in a civil case that caused family’s financial ruin. So that’s a big differentiator that, you know, I’m glad that we’re pointing out a little bit of great.

Andy the Gun Guy 15:13
So what about the other packages? Sure.

Mike Bauer 15:15
So as you move up, you’re going from 600,000 protection at the gold, you go to 1,150,000 at our most popular Platinum membership, and then again, that elite goes to 2,250,000 and protection. The other thing that you get though, Andy, I’m guessing when you took your concealed carry course, it was in Florida, correct? Yes. Was it the last course and training you’ve ever taken on firearms?

Andy the Gun Guy 15:40
For me? No. You know, I’m an NRA certified counselor. So I’ve trained 30,000 people, but I would tell you that you know, of the 30,000 people that I’ve trained, the vast majority of them don’t do more, right. Yeah.

Mike Bauer 15:49
Yeah. And ultimately, it’s a silly question even asked, why would you know, why would someone think you could sit through a short little class, you can fire one round, and all of a sudden you’re qualified to carry every single day, although the last day you have the ability to do so. And I fully back that, as a protector of my family, I know that my CCW class was just scratching the surface. So that’s what we believe, again, we talked about the responsibly armed American. So each level of membership increases the amount of education and training that you can get, the best way to kind of put this into perspective is anyone I show up in your class? I don’t need to know the difference between a 1911 and a Glock 17 in most of your classes, but it would probably help if I knew how to load the magazine before I got there.

Andy the Gun Guy 16:30
Very true. Very true. You know, that’s one of the things that I love about the US CCA is that a lot of your stuff, it’s it’s pure content, right. It’s about learning how to use the gun, learning about other self defense situations. You know, knowing your laws, right. You know, like your CCW reciprocity? I mean, that’s my go to, then it’s been my go to for years, Hey, can I carry in, you know, in Arkansas, when I’m going up there with my Florida permit, you know, you know, all of these, you know, education factors. And it looks like you’ve kind of got a list here of education that differentiated between training and it looks like with your, with your education section on the highest tier, you get up to 70, separate digital guides and ebooks, which I think is absolutely huge. So tell me about this, ask attorney, ask an attorney monthly webinar. Tell me a little bit about that.

Mike Bauer 17:15
Sure. So we’ve had tremendous success across the country with us, especially our team specifically, as we go through a self defense journey, it is natural for me to want to start asking, here I am in Wisconsin, you guys have a little bit different laws, but we have what’s called the Castle Doctrine. What does that mean to me as it applies as a gun owner? You know, does that mean that I have absolute immunity, if someone breaks into my house, those are the types of questions we see all over the place. Now. The especially with COVID can always seem this, you know, the the restrictions on buildings and how many people can be in them events and things like that. Even more popular now has become our online webinars for asking attorney. So even though it’s not always going to be the most specific for your, you know, it’s not always going to be Boulevard County, you know, laws and regulations, we do kind of dive into here’s the general concept of rules like, you know, Castle Doctrine and stand your ground and civil immunity 7761032. What does that necessarily mean to me as a gun owner, and we give our audience the ability to tap into these attorneys ask live questions, and I’ll be the first one to admit this, sometimes I’m a little skeptical. Every now and then I’ll jump on and ask a question. And it is, you know, I don’t put my actual name down. But it’s cool when it gets answered. Because I know, as is a live thing that we get our questions answered.

Andy the Gun Guy 18:35
Awesome. And of course, we can’t give legal advice, but it is a good resource just to get you know, the information and the, you know, specific questions answered So, so guys out there watching, you know, this has been really informative as far as you know, how the US CCA works and why we need concealed carry insurance. So I want you to take action look to become a gold member, the minimum just to get started. It’s just $22 a month. And again, that’s that’s up to $600,000 in protections that not salutely Yeah, that’s that I mean, for $23 a month at the smallest package. I mean, it is totally a worthwhile investment. I am the elite member, you know, this is either $47 a month or 490 $7 $497 a year and, and keep in mind the people that are watching this, I went through a situation where I actually lost my gun rights for 14 days of a false accusation. It could happen to anybody at any time and we need to be be very, very careful and secure our rights. This investment is nothing compared to the trials and tribulations you could literally have to go through so, Mike, I really appreciate you joining and just as a side note any if there’s any NRA certified instructor that’s watching this, send me a private message. I’d love to get you hooked up as becoming you know, somebody that’s helping to teach people about the use of CCA and possibly earn a little bit of income as as an instructor to your students private messaged me on on Facebook or messenger and We’ll get that information to you and those of you who are ready to go, there is a link in the description of this video that’s going to have more information and it’ll lead you right to this page, which is the top seven reasons to join the US CCA today, Mike, it’s been a pleasure. I really appreciate you coming on today.

Mike Bauer 20:16
This was fun, man. Anytime. Yeah. I love always being able to help out audience members. So again, if there’s anything else that I can do to help you out, reach out anytime. This is awesome.

Andy the Gun Guy 20:24
All right, thanks so much. We’ll see you.

17-Year-Old Shoots Two Felons in Self Defense – Then Arrested for Murder

SHOCK: Watch As Kyle Rittenhouse Defends Life Against Mob; Convicted Felons

Quick Recap:

  • Jacob Blake (black) was shot and paralyzed by (white) police officers. [An investigation confirmed he was ARMED with a knife]
  • Rioters and looters immediately set out to destruction and violence
  • Kyle Rittenhouse (17-year-old) was part of a team defending a local business
  • Rittenhouse was first attacked by convicted pedophile (felon!) who was shot and killed in self defense, then attacked by two more felons (one who was armed with a handgun!)

WARNING: Whether You Are Charged or Not is NO LONGER About Right VS Wrong

I used to trust the law.

I used to believe that all I had to do was the RIGHT THING and the law would protect me.

Then, I lost my gun rights for 14-days after an ex-business partner decided to get some payback.

It cost me THOUSANDS in attorney fees.

That’s when I joined the USCCA.

Here’s how the USCCA Self-Defense Insurance works:

  • You sign up at $22 bucks a month (or $247 per year if you pay all at once)
  • If you get arrested or into any legal trouble, they cover your attorney fees up to $500,000
  • They cover bail money up to $100,000
  •  $350 per day of paycheck replacement during court sessions
  • $3,000 in hardship coverage
  • $3,000 for therapy or other emotional and psychological support
  • BOTTOM LINE: You stay protected and concealed carry with confidence

What’s the Difference Between USCCA and US Law Shield?

The major difference between the two: The USCCA allows you to choose whatever attorney you feel will defend your case the BEST. US Law Shield APPOINTS an attorney on your case.

US Law Shield also does not cover any hardship, paycheck replacement, or emotional/psychological support.

USCCA is the clear choice for protection.

Is it illegal to concealed carry while wearing a mask? Full Transcript Below

Andy the Gun Guy
Setting up a meeting right here. And all right. Hey guys is Andy the Gun Guy going live on Facebook right now I am joined with Sergeant bloom of the Marion County Sheriff’s Department. We’re here to talk about masks versus concealed carry and all the rumors surrounding concealed carry. Sergeant, thank you for coming today.

Sgt Bloom
Hey, thanks for having me on here and appreciate.

Andy the Gun Guy
So surgeon The reason I asked you to join me live on Facebook is you know, there’s a lot of rumors and misinformation going on, about you know, what’s going on in the industry. You know, Walmart has just required concealed carry, sorry, one has just required masks during their, you know, your shopping experience with them. You know, a number of businesses are actually requiring, you know, mastering during your your shopping visit and your dining experience. And I actually just wrote a Harley across the country from Boston, Massachusetts to Denver, Colorado, I was amazed that, you know, one stop, we have, and they require the masks and view, you know, you have the mask on, you know, you’re good. And the next stop, they don’t care. I mean, you know, there’s a lot of a lot of stuff going on within the mask world. But what we’re seeing is the concealed carry industry as a whole is really kind of upset with some of the law that’s going on with, with mass in general. So before I share my screen and pull up that individual law for you to kind of analyze with us. Can you just tell me, you know, firstly, what your position is with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, and then you know, what the Marion County Sheriff’s department’s position on the second amendment is?

Sgt Bloom
So yeah, and I appreciate the opportunity to talk about this. We’ve gotten a lot, a lot of questions about it. And just some of your folks there that you know, and the follow you there. So they held the same same question I want to carry in my second minute, right. But this mass law, May is it interfering? Am I breaking the law? And what I love about concealed carry permit holders, people always ask me, Hey, I got a concealed carry permit you pull me over? Should I show you my concealed carry permit? Absolutely. That tells me a couple things about you. You’re not a convicted felon, and you’re trying to live by the law. So we want to keep people doing that. And we know they want to do that. So my job here as a public information director for the sheriff’s office, I can tell you Sheriff woods, as a spokesperson, I can tell you, he’s a strong Second Amendment supporter. And we need there’s there’s not enough of us to go around so that we need good citizens that are armed that really help us and protect them to so we support that 100%

Andy the Gun Guy
Absolutely. And that’s one of the things that I value about this community that we’re a part of Sargent is our community is the pro law enforcement, we’re the people that you know, scan for the flag and kneel for the cross and really support, you know, our boys in blue, or green or whatever color you guys are wearing, you know, we’re the ones that are on the road, you know, and as we drive by, you know, somebody at a traffic stop, we’re double checking in our mirror to make sure that everything is going okay, you know, and that’s really what we pride ourselves on. But that that means that we also care about, you know, following the law. And we you know, we are concerned about, you know, how that how that looks. So I’m going to go ahead and share my screen here. And let’s pull up this statute here. This is the one that everybody is really talking about. This is Florida statute 876. I’ll just read it real quick. You know, it clearly says in the statute here, wearing a mask hood or any device on public way, no person or persons over 16 years of age shall while wearing any mask, hood or device whereby any portion of the phases to be concealed, are covered as to conceal their identity of the wear and tear upon or be or appear upon any lane walk alley street road highway, or any other public way in the state. And this is really rare uranga concealed carriers are saying specifically that, you know, if we’re out there carrying firearms, and we’re married, wearing a mask, you know, we’re gonna get in trouble. We’re gonna be breaking the law. What are your thoughts?

Sgt Bloom
So every law, criminal law has an element of intent. And what does that mean in the intent here? So the intent of this law, it starts out with talking about people over 16 years of age, so who wears a mask under 16? Well, every trick or treater that I’ve ever come across, either they’ve got mask on so the intent of this law is the guy putting on the bandana to go in and rob the bank robber convenience store that you’re trying to buy some coke at. So the intent is a big, big thing here. We cannot have a solid case on a criminal unless we can show that there’s some kind of intent if I’m in the parking lot. I’m mad at Andy and I woke up and I just slammed my fist on Andy’s car and put a big dent in it. That’s criminal mischief as a criminal act and I’m responsible. Now in the same parking lot of walking along. I trip and fall. I kept myself on Andy’s car and inadvertently put a same dent in his hood of his car. There’s no intent there. I’m civilly liable. Yes, but I did not intend to do that. So intent is very, very big. And the law here talking about putting a mask on your face has everything to do with intent. Don’t miss that part of it. Because if you now I will tell you this, we recently had someone steal an ATV. And they let us on a on a chase on the stolen ATV. And we did end up capturing them, but they were wearing a mask while doing it. They’re trying to hide themselves from us and disguise their their appearance. So we charged them with this with this law, but they were committing a crime. While they’re doing they had the intent to hide themselves during the commission of this crime.

Andy the Gun Guy
So basically, you know, because we’re writing the mask, because it’s a medical issue and not, you know, to walk into a bank and cause problems and, you know, and commit a crime, the elements of wearing that mask is no problem. So, if we’re walking down the street, you’re wearing a mask, you kind of see the outline of somebody’s pissed or whatever, you know, printing, you know, um, you know, and the person is approached by that officer, you know, you know, this is a little bit different than a traffic stop. What do you think that we should do in that case? And I’m gonna ask you about traffic stops later on.

Sgt Bloom
Okay. So yeah, you have a mask on and you say, you know what, I am a concealed carry holder, and I am armed. I can tell you that in Marin County, we’re not arresting you for that we’re not we’re not concerned with that our concern is yet from traffic stop for speeding that you slow down, our concern is something else, we understand. And again, you look back at that the whole kind of zoom out on this picture here and look at it as a whole. If somebody’s committing a crime, they have a right to a trial by a jury of their peers. And if I was to arrest you, just solely because you were a law abiding citizen wearing a mask and concealed carrying lawfully concealed carry. And that was the only reason I rested you and I put you in front of this jury, with the jury gonna say they’re gonna say, Well, I think I remember something about COVID or something happening 2020 along with murder Hornets and whatever else. So there, there’s no way that we’re going to be there’s no way the State Attorney’s Office even will pick that case up. So we’re not concerned about that. We obviously we’re looking for looking out for our own safety on every single call. And you know, you again, it’s not the traffic stop, we were talking about, you’re telling me you’re a concealed carry permit holder. I know you’re not a convicted felon. And you’re if you’re telling me this, then I know. Okay, I don’t foresee any kind of nefarious intent coming from you right now.

Andy the Gun Guy
So that’s a good answer. So would you say that and those of you who are watching guys, if you if you back the boom, hit the thumbs up button right now to support law enforcement with all the divisions around the country, the thumbs up button for law enforcement? And also, if you have a question for Sergeant bloom, feel free to leave in the comments. I’ll try to I’ll try to ask that question. But, but sorry, to tell me, you know, so we’re wearing a mask driving down the street, you know, we get pulled over? Do you think that’s the same thing? We just kind of alert? Yeah, and how would we actually go about what’s the best way to, you know, let law enforcement know upon a traffic stop that, you know, the guy behind the mask, or the girl behind the mask is not a threat?

Sgt Bloom
So as a great question, that comes up quite a bit, and a lot of folks carry. And I can tell you, I’ve been down to the to our local tag office where you go register to get a concealed permit, and they’re busy. They’re very, they’re so busy, the gun stores are busy. People are taking advantage of the second minute right now more than ever, I think. So this question comes up, what do I do on a traffic stop? Well, what we’re looking for is, if it’s daytime, his hands nighttime as well. If it’s nighttime, if you can turn the light on inside the car, that helps us a lot, but it’s at ease a little bit more. Because to us every traffic stop that I do, that person is armed until I prove otherwise. And so we treat it as such. So if we can see your hands, you’re not reaching for something, don’t grab the gun to show it to me, you know, just leave it where it is if you’re wearing but just let us know him. Okay, so carry permit, here’s my license, here’s my concealed carry license. And there’s no big deal we’re going to ask you, Hey, I think 99 point apps in the office will tell you Okay, that’s cool. Just leave it where it is. Don’t Don’t pull it out. And you know it and then I’ll be right back with you. So we’re not concerned I believe we every every traffic that we do somebody aren’t there’s enough stolen firearms out there on people that are convicted felons who are not allowed to have them but they still haven’t magically so we were gonna take cautions the same way every traffic stop whether your concealed carry or not, but yeah, just let us know right up front. That’s the quickest and easiest way and we’ll go on from there because that’s that’s a it doesn’t really because somebody tells me that doesn’t put any fear in my heart I guess as an author I’m not I’m not concerned Am I fact, it takes it my level of concern down to the NAACP defense fair.

Andy the Gun Guy
Yeah, absolutely. Now that’s it. That’s a good point. So here employer, we’re not legally required to let law enforcement know upon contact. I mean, it as instructors, you know, happy cops don’t write tickets. You don’t want them to be surprised. You know, as much right. No surprise that you’ve got a buyer mind because that escalates attention to everything, right?

Sgt Bloom
So yes,

Andy the Gun Guy
joke. Happy cops don’t write tickets. Just go with your gut, on guns, you know, in general. You know, it’s just kind of the best way to de escalate the situation a little bit. I feel like you guys will feel safer from us, you know, letting letting you know up front. So that’s kind of what we recommended. And that’s what we suggest. So, you know, kind of wrapping this up here, nobody really commented, questions. I’ve got Amanda saying, Well, our sheriff’s office I and Andrew says, rule number one, don’t scream, I have a gun while law enforcement officer is approaching. I think that’s probably a valid point. Good.

Sgt Bloom
A good rule. That’s a good way to say things that way not to say things. But yeah, you don’t. But you get a good valid point there. And you don’t have to tell us that you have a gun. You’re a free American citizen. And my father, grandfather, they fought for that. I fought for that. Right? And you don’t have to tell us but you know, but tell us It does. It does help us we’re there for your good to we’re not, despite what anybody in the media tries to tell you. We’re not we’re not your enemy. We’re out to help people. And we’ve dedicated our lives to that. And, and we want to help so yeah, if you do, let us know, great. Now, if we do see a firearm, you choose not to let us know. And we do see a firearm on your side while you’re sitting in the car, for instance, then we’re going to be concerned, we’re going to ask you about that. Do you have a concealed permit, etc. But But yeah, letting us know if you if you feel comfortable, let us know right up front, that just helps us out. And yeah, we appreciate the support. Because, you know, law enforcement, our job is very much under attack. And we the people that do this job, and I I’ve been in this job for a number of years now. And like some folks went into the I wanted the business world left this job for a while when in the business world. And we’re making good money, but I missed the job. This is what’s in my heart. So we do it for for the right reasons. And is there bad apples and every every bunch? Yes, every every business and every line of work in this world there is so we don’t we don’t associate ourselves with them. And we do appreciate a supportive of good folks out there that do support their country and do appreciate the the founding fathers that put these amendments, these these constitutional rights into our our foundation, and we’re gonna we’re sworn when I swear, as a new deputy, and we swore some deputies in the other day. We swear to defend the constitution. And a lot of people don’t know that about us. That’s where we that’s what we’re working for. We’re defending the laws that that our forefathers set. So we need good citizens out there that are armed and willing, and do take that second look, when they pass us on a traffic stop. I have had folks out to help me on a traffic stop that we’re armed citizens. And and I can tell you, that goes a long way. I appreciate it. My wife and my family appreciate it. So thank you.

Andy the Gun Guy
Wow, what a great point. I think that this video is gonna get a lot of viewers this is really the conversation that we wanted to have at law enforcement for a long time. I did get a couple of questions through if you don’t mind. Your wire says, Can you say anything about the law under the state of emergency right, you know, concealed carrying state of emergency, you know, if you can clarify that for us, too. That’d be super helpful.

Sgt Bloom
Sure. So in a state of emergency understand a lot of things change. And it’s one of the they they put a lot of thought into before we declare a state of emergency. What can happen because sometimes curfews can go into place. And again, it’s all designed to make sure that the bad guys are not getting taken advantage of the good guys. And during state of emergency if you’re if you’re carrying a firearm, if my power’s out to my house, and and I’m worried about a vandal or somebody coming up, what I armed myself. Absolutely, and I’m talking about me is not a sheriff’s deputy, but just as a citizen. Yes, I’m going to do that. Now. It’s a state of emergency and I come across you as a deputy sheriff. And I check out Hey, do you live here? Yep, here’s my ID, my ID This is my house. I’m here. And yes, I’m armed. We got no problem with that. Yes, a state of emergency. A lot of these laws again, goes back to what we talked about earlier, with intent. When you commit a crime during a state of emergency, it can knock it up a notch that the penalty gets knocked up a notch because hey, we’re doing instead of mercy, you’re out here breaking into homes or stealing cars or whatever you’re doing, then it’s a it could have an enhanced penalty. So the letter the intent of the law here sometimes, you know, don’t get those confused with the lawmakers are writing and what we’re enforcing we’re going to force a law Yes, we’re gonna force the intent, what can be prosecuted? When you go in front of those those jurors and enter in or try to trial this thing was that big. So you had always like back to intent. Again, and especially in the time of emergency, if there’s one one deputy for every 1000 citizens, that’s about the average, and there’s there’s one of us for every 1000 of you. We can’t be everywhere one time, so we need need good armed citizens that are willing to step up and protect our country protect their county and each other. So now we actually depend on it. Sir,

Andy the Gun Guy
I believe that the law states that you’re allowed to if there’s a mandatory evacuation you’re allowed to concealed carry without a license as long as possession that firearm and while evacuating and up to 48 hours after that evacuations lifted, which is worth noting Is that is that correct?

Sgt Bloom
Yes. And, and I love that law because it shows to me shows the value of a firearm of an American citizen being able to own a firearm, it’s that viable that hey, if I’m having to be forced to flee my home and seek cover from a hurricane, I can take that firearm with me I don’t need that concealed carry permit. And the shows that our our lawmakers had some some forethought there and said, You know what, that’s a valuable piece of equipment for anybody that’s, I’m going to somewhere that I’m not from, I’m evacuating to I don’t know where the next closest hotel is safe. You know, I need my firearm there to feel like I’m safe. So I think it’s a great law. And yeah, we’re gonna back that up. And nobody’s gonna harass you on the law enforcement side for for if you come back, and it’s, hey, look, it’s been 49 hours and you’re still not back at your house. That’s not happening. We’re, again, we’re we’re realist. So yeah.

Andy the Gun Guy
Yeah. And that’s the other thing. I don’t want to leave my guns here at all. I’m back waiting in case. You know,

Sgt Bloom
it. Exactly.

Andy the Gun Guy
Cool. So, you know, Rhonda, want to ask the question, I’m trying to figure out a word that she says, you know, what do we say to the to the people who refuse to wear masks because their concealed carry? I want to get into like masks or good masterbath? I just want to talk about concealed carry aspect of it. You know, what do we say to somebody that says, I can’t wear a mask? Because I am concealed carrier?

Sgt Bloom
Yeah. So what I say to you, if you, whatever side Have you fallen, I know it’s a divided topic. Some people say I’m wearing a mask. And some some say I’m not, I’m not going to wear a mask. You know, you’ve got to do whatever you feel is right for you, as far as wearing a mask goes. Now, where it comes into play, don’t don’t let the fact that you’re a concealed weapons, concealed carry holder of a license. Don’t let that interfere with the fact that you feel it, there’s a side of you that feels like you know what I need to mask for my safety. You’ve also got that concealed carry for your safety. So don’t let those two step on each other. If you feel like you need a mask, go ahead and wear a mask and, and feel free to conceal carry lawfully in lawful places. And we’re not we’re not offended at that we’re not arresting you for that. That’s that’s a that’s something comes back. totally up to you to your preference. As far as the mass printer.

Andy the Gun Guy
Awesome. I think that we covered all the questions for now. if people have questions after watching this video, how do you think is the best way to to get in touch with

Sgt Bloom
you? Well, if you go on our website at Marian, www.MarionSO.com. You can you can find me under there and the public information director or just email me you can find my email there, but it’s a PB n p as in Paul, bl o m at Marion s o.com to send me an email if you got a question. And I’ll do my very best to get that answered for you.

Andy the Gun Guy
Awesome. Hey, listen, thank you so much for joining this conversation that needs to be had. I feel that if conversations like this existed more in the community, we’d have a better, safer place to live. And we appreciate the Marion County, you know, getting on and joining us today.

Sgt Bloom
All right, Andy, it’s our pleasure to come on here and talk. We love to get to talk with our citizens. So appreciate the avenue. All right. Thank you, sir. We’ll see ya. All right.

Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns #9: FMK 9C1 G2 9mm “Patriot’s Gun”

FMK 9c1 G2 PROS: Affordable. Accurate. Patriotic. Fits all holsters, accessories, lasers, sights, and everything else that fits the super popular Glock 19.
FMK 9c1 G2 PROS: Can’t think of one!

If you like the Glock 19, you’re going to LOVE this FMK. Designed to fit in all the Glock 19 holsters, accessories, sights, and lasers – but also designed to be much nicer on your wallet.

I’ve been shooting for a long time. I’ve shot just about every handgun on the planet. I’ve felt every trigger, every slide, every slide stop switch, and every handgun frame on the market.

There’s no gun that I love as much as I love the FMK 9c1 G2 9mm.

FMK stands for “For My Kountry” – and they created a fantastic firearm that will not only feel comfortable in your hand, but also is friendly to your wallet.

We all know that the most popular carry gun on the planet is the Glock 19. Everybody knows what a Glock is, and everyone knows how much a Glock costs.

The best part about the FMK 9C1 G2 is the price tag: under $400 bucks.

  • Made to fit all Glock 19 holsters, accessories, lasers, flashlights, and sights

  • Comes with either the FAT or DAO triggers (explained below)
  • Multiple color options available

    Choose the optional Bill of Rights Engraving!

 

 

 

FMK 9C1 G2 Trigger Options: DAO or FAT?

DAO stands for “Double Action Only” and FAT stands for “Fast Action Trigger.”

The 9C1 does not have an option for an EXTERNAL safety. It does have a trigger safety on it, but  no external thumb safety on it.

With the FAT (Fast Action Trigger), you have a short, crisp trigger pull. The DAO (Double Action Only) is still a smooth trigger, but it is just a bit longer of a trigger pull – which in turn makes the gun less likely to go off if you aren’t intentionally pulling the trigger. The DAO version also has a magazine disconnect, which means the trigger won’t work unless the magazine is inserted.

Bottom line: the FMK 9C1 G2 FAT trigger is the standard option, but the DAO option provides extra safety options. The FMK 9C1 G2 is approved in Massachusetts or California with the DAO trigger option only.

Attention Women: This Gun is For You, Too!

Women love this gun. Yes, it comes in some girly colors like pink and teal, but more importantly, its SUPER easy to operate the gun. The slide racks back easily for a women and the slide stop is extremely smooth.

If you’re a women and not sure what gun you’re looking for, the FMK 9C1 G2 will absolutely be a gun you’ll fall in love with.

Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns #8: Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380ACP

 Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380ACP PROS: Affordable. Concealable. Lightweight. Reliable. Lifetime warranty. Fits in your front or back pocket.
 Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380ACP CONS: Some people complain about the trigger pull – but we feel this is a feature designed to prevent the gun from going off accidentally when carrying.

We just can’t say enough about the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380ACP. This is a fantastic carry gun with excellent features at a GREAT price. Built-in laser. External thumb safety. Lock-back on empty. You can’t beat this gun for this price.

If you’re thinking about conceal carrying a firearm, this gun should be on your mind.

The sub-compact polymer frame weighs 11.85 ounces and can be easily concealed anywhere on the body for personal protection. When carrying this firearm, it’s almost like it isn’t there.

You can literally put the Bodyguard 380 in your pocket and not only forget about it being there, but also have room to spare. With (6+1) capacity this gun has enough firepower to stop any threat and also has a dual mode laser for quick point and shoot situations.

Should you buy the Smith * Wesson Bodyguard .380 WITH or WITHOUT the laser?

We absolutely LOVE the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380 – with or without the laser. You don’t need a laser to be accurate if you practice enough!

In fact, some people think that having no laser on your concealed carry pistol is better than having a laser.

The Smith & Wesson Bodyguard .380 is one of the coolest pocket pistols on the market today. Have you held one? It feels great in the hand – almost like an extension of your hand!

bodyguard-380-crimson-trace-safety

BODYGUARD 380: PERFECT POCKET PISTOL!

The Bodyguard is a great firearm itself, but it is also an incredible conceal carry gun. I would consider its frame size to be classified as a “pocket pistol” rather than a sub-compact because of how small it really is.

Without being loaded down by ammo the firearms weighs only 11.85 ounces and can easily fit in the palm of a hand. One great feature that Smith&Wesson includes with the gun is the finger extended floor plate for the magazine. It does not change the capacity of the firearm but does allow you to be able to have a larger resting spot for you last finger in order to get a better grip on the gun.

Other features that surprised me are the external features like the manual safety, slide stop/release, and take-down pin. Mainly because they usually are not available on a gun of this size, such as the Ruger LCP, or Kel-Tec P3AT.

The External take-down pin make field stripping and reassembly quite simple, it does not require the use of any tools other than your hands. Many people also prefer an external safety and the Smith&Wesson Bodyguard 380 has a very simple thumb activated/deactivated one as well as a long trigger pull which also acts as a safety.

 

Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns #7: Ruger LC9s or Ruger LC9s PRO

Ruger LC9s Pros: Slim. Compact. Lightweight. Excellent trigger pull!
Ruger LC9s Cons: Hard to pull back. Stiff. Difficult to use.

ruger_lc9s_strikerfired

Ruger LC9s and LC9s Pro: The Pefect Carry Gun for Everyday Carry (EDC)

The Ruger LC9s Pro is a workhorse of carry guns. This gun is lightweight, concealable, and extremely accurate.

  • The trigger pull on this carry gun is better than a Glock – and WAY better than the Smith & Wesson M&P Series
  • The light trigger leads to a crisp pull – which will keep you on target much faster and easier – potentially a LIFE SAVING FEATURE on this carry gun
  • This is a CARRY gun – perfectly slim and compact for your everyday carry (EDC)
  • The Ruger LC9s Pro frame is made of the absolute latest and strongest technology

The new Ruger LC9s Pro is one of the most bad ass concealed carry pistols to hit our online gun storethis year. The LC9s Pro is the same size and shape as the traditional Ruger LC9s, but the gun seems entirely different. This gun seems more… intimidating….and it is!

If you’re a new gun owner and don’t have a lot of experience with concealed carry, this gun may not be the right gun for you. But if you’re a seasoned concealed carry holder, or you’re especially excellent with firearm safety, this gun might be right up your ally.

There is no margin of error: when you put just a light amount of pressure on that trigger, the gun will go off. That’s what makes it such an awesome carry gun.

Ruger LC9, LC9s, and Ruger LC9s Pro: What’s the Difference?

They may look entirely the same, but these are two vastly different guns made for two vastly different customers. The Ruger LC9 is a double-action-only single stack 9mm automatic pistol which features an external thumb safety and a magazine disconnect safety. It had a long, firm trigger pull on it which most concealed carriers loved. It was an added safety barrier.

The Ruger LC9s is somewhat of an upgrade to the Ruger LC9. The LC9s has a really sweet single-action trigger. The trigger is one of the best trigger pulls that we have ever felt in a concealed carry pistol.

Original Ruger LC9:

  • Bad-ass/lightweight/sleek carry pistol that fits just about anywhere
  • Great feeling double-action-only trigger pull keeps you from accidentally discharging your firearm
  • Manual thumb safety that kept you doubly safe
  • Magazine safety made the pistol inoperable with no magazine – triple the safety!

Ruger LC9s:

  • Exactly the same size and shape as the original LC9
  • Newly designed striker-fired action which lead to a trigger pull better than a Glock’s
  • Will not fire without magazine in

Ruger LC9s Pro:

  • No thumb safety
  • Sweet trigger pull
  • Fires without magazine in
  • Trigger safety only
  • #uhohgunaccident
The LC9 features a manual thumb safety where the new Ruger LC9s Pro does not. The other major feature change is the Magazine Disconnect Safety. The Ruger LC9 has a magazine disconnect where the New LC9s Pro does not.

Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns #6: Honor Defense Honor Guard 9mm

Honor Guard 9mm PROS: Completely ambidextrous. Affordable. Concealable. Lightweight. Compact.
Honor Guard 9mm CONS: Difficult to rack. The slide lock cannot be used to bring the slide forward.

We spent a LOT of time marketing and promoting the Honor Guard 9mm – for good reason! Its one of the all time best carry guns on the market today.

Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns #5: Sig Sauer P238 .380 (Black Wood Grips)

Sig Sauer P238 PROs: Lightweight. Simple. Fits in your pocket. Smooth as butter. Accurate.
Sig Sauer P238 Cons: 
Quite literally, the only problem with this gun is the PRICE!

The Sig P238 is one of the most popular pocket .380s on the market today. This is a great looking defensive gun – and will never let you down.

sg238-380-bg_1

The Sig P238 is absolutely the ideal “pocket gun” – if you can afford it! This is by far one of the highest quality concealed carry guns on the market. But it comes at hefty price!

Sig Sauer P238 .380 Description:

Sig Sauer, P238, Blackwood, Single Action, Compact, 380ACP, 2.72″ Barrel, Alloy Frame, DuoTone Finish, Black Wood Grips, Fixed Night Sights, 6Rd, 1 Magazines

Sig Sauer P238 .380 Specifications:

  •  Sig Sauer
  •  238-380-BG
  •  P238
  •  Semi-automatic
  •  Single Action Only

Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns #4: Glock 30SF

No top 10 gun list would be complete without having a Glock or two in the mix. The Glock 30SF holds a whopping 10 rounds of 45ACP. If you can’t stop a threat in 10 rounds of 45ACP, you should have brought a TANK to the fight!

Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns #2: Ruger SR40c

The Ruger SR40c is the compact version of the popular Ruger SR series. The 40S&W is a super capable round with plenty of stopping power, but also a more gentle recoil than a .45ACP. The 40C has made it to number 3 on our Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns list.

Top 10 Concealed Carry Guns#1: Taurus PT-111

Taurus has come a long way from where they used to be, and now they produce some of the best and highest quality carry guns on the market today. Check out some of the unique life-saving features of the Taurus PT111 today!

By far, the Taurus PT-111 is one of my all-time favorite carry guns for a multitude of reasons. Besides having a great price and MSRP, the Taurus PT-111 comes standard with the following concealed carry features out of the box:

  • Textured grips that ensure that you’ll never drop the gun in a firefight (sweaty palms and adrenaline can make you lose control of your carry gun in a pinch!)
  • Adjustable sights so you can make sure you’re always as accurate as possible
  • Double/single action trigger that could save your life (read more below!)
  • Striker-fired trigger that makes the single or double action trigger pull excellent
  • Picatinny rail system which allows you to mount a laser or flashlight to be able to get on target or see a threat in low-light conditions
  • Double stack capacity which ensures you’ll never run out of ammunition in a firefight
