Lessons learned from the Albuquerque Protest Shooting

This shooting is very informative for law abiding gun owners and folks who carry concealed firearms. Steven Baca may have been guilty of minor offenses, but his defensive shooting of an attacker with a blunt trauma weapon was entirely justifiable in my opinion.

  1. Joel, great training video and it encourage me to seek a CCW from the San Diego Sheriffs, when approve I would like to take training from you. Thanks

  2. You have to account, as blue shirt guy was being bludgeoned, he was hearing ” I will KILL YOU”….
    AND in a still shot of that time, You can CLEARLY see a knife in the hand of the guy with the skateboard

  3. Great video, Joel. You are exactly right about avoiding trouble if you are carrying a gun. It looked like a legal shooting. Keep up the great work.

  4. I use a self-defense method that teaches “break important things on your opponent quickly to take them out of the fight”. One important part of it is that you learn de-escalation as well as not getting into situations that you will need to use the techniques. They are the last option who’s use is decided by the actions of your opponent(s). Staying away from physical confrontation is best for everyone. I would hope YouTube stops the foolishness and leaves creators alone, but we all know they won’t until forced to.

  5. Thank you for the video Joel! This man made a bad decision attending this event and now he has to live with the emotional and legal consequences even though he appears justified. Using your firearm is always a last resort but using your brain isn’t!
