One Form of Gun Defense
Tonight I went through a rather exhausting but very rewarding Krav Maga session. After practicing more combatives (kicks, punches, and elbow hits; here are a few videos), going over ground fighting and getting up and away quickly and with minimal exposure (all in full body armor, which adds some weight), we focused the last half on gun defenses, i.e., how to disarm someone who is threatening you with a gun. Practice your form and practice being really fast, because it’s got to be done before he knows what’s hit him.
Coincidentally, the District of Columbia government has responded to our lawsuit to vindicate the Second Amendment rights of residents of the District. (Here is the District government’s motion to dismiss our suit and here is our response, to which the District responded today.) As a key lawyer in the case, Alan Gura, put it in his email to me today, “It’s all up to the court now.”
