ALR – Faith, Firearms, Freedom, Self-Defense plus #StandwithCap


The Armed Lutheran Radio podcast just keeps getting better. If you haven’t taken the opportunity to listen, now’s the time.

This is episode 33 of the podcast, where Lloyd Baily and ALR contributors (including me) discuss faith, firearms, and freedom! PLUS we talk about guns, the natural right of self-defense, the shooting sports, hunting, and the ethical issues surrounding gun ownership and gun rights in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This week you’ll find the following (CLICK HERE to find more at Armed Lutheran):

Special guest – Brandon Warr of War Zone Media joins us to discuss the history of Captain America from the comics to the movies, the parallels between the Civil War story line and the gun control debate, and how Massachsetts AG Maura Healy’s #StandWithCap hashtag is a bastardization of what the character stood for in comic lore.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill
Shooting partials in IDPA is a different test than USPSA. In IDPA hard cover, actual stage props, and non-threat targets can present you with part of a target, and mistakes can be costly. Sgt. Bill explains how to attack the different types of partials you might face in an IDPA match.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Aaron Israel gets back to basic and discusses the “AOJ Triad” — Ability, Opportunity, and Jeopardy — and how they are used to determine when it is appropriate to use deadly force in self-defense. Beyond knowing the law in your state, understanding this concept is key to deciding if you are justified or prosecuted for a defensive shooting.

Mia’s Motivations with Mia Anstine
Mia Anstine builds on Aaron’s tip from last week, discussing how to arm your older children as they go off to college. They can’t take a gun with them, and in many cases even less-than lethal weapons are forbidden. You can arm them with the gift of fear and intuition.

Clinging to God and Guns
Pastor Bennett is still attending to family medical needs. Please continue to keep him and his family in your prayers. We hope to have him back with us next week!

Prayer of the Week
Keep, we implore You, O Lord, Your Church with Your perpetual mercy; and because the frailty of mankind without You cannot but fall, keep us ever by Your help from all things hurtful and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
