“Constitutional carry” is all the rage, with 13 states now allowing residents to carry a concealed firearm without a permit and as many as a dozen more considering similar measures. This week on Armed Lutheran Radio, Lloyd and contributors Mia Anstine, Aaron Israel, and Pastor John Bennett all share their thoughts on the subject from their unique perspectives.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill
Sgt. Bill is shooting the Silver Dollar IDPA Championship and will be back with us next week.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Aaron Israel wrote an article for Personal Defense Network on the issue of Constitutional Carry from the perspective of an instructor, and he shares those thoughts on this week's show.

Mia's Motivations with Mia Anstine
Mia Anstine shares her thoughts on Campus Carry and Constitutional Carry from the perspective of a mom with a daughter heading to college soon.

Clinging to God and Guns
How should we as Christians view the subject of Constitutional Carry? Pastor John Bennett shares his thoughts.

Prayer of the Week
Merciful Father, who by the humiliation of Your Son raised up the fallen world, grant to Your faithful people perpetual gladness, and make those whom You have delivered from the danger of everlasting death to be partakers of eternal joys; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

It's been a craptastic couple of weeks for the gun banners. Two shootings in California — one in a school and a spree killing — should have served as grist for the gun control media mill. But once the facts became known, the narratives fell apart and nobody cared. Plus Mia is preparing for her trip to Atlanta for the NRA Annual Meetings, Sgt. Bill has a product review, Aaron has tips for trusting your gut, and Pastor Bennett responds to listener feedback.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill
Sgt. Bill reviews the Mantis X dry fire training tool. Is it revolutionary? Is it worth the price tag?

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Your intuition will tell you when to avoid danger. The trick is that you have to listen.

Mia's Motivations with Mia Anstine
Mia is looking forward to the NRA Annual Meetings in Atlanta next weekend.

Clinging to God and Guns
Pastor John Bennett responds to a nasty bit of feedback that tries to paint Jesus as the world's biggest liberal.

Prayer of the Week
Almighty and merciful God, as You have brought us to celebrate the festival of the Lord's resurrection, cause us by Your grace to bring forth the fruits thereof in our life and conduct; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Two events in the final week of the life of Christ are most often used on either side of the gun debate.  Jesus tells his disciples in the Upper Room to sell their cloaks and buy swords, and later tells Simon Peter that all who take up the sword will perish by the sword.  What's the proper context of these verses and what should we be focusing on as we read through these passages during the Holy Week of Easter?  Pastor Evan Goeglein of Faith Lutheran Church in Rogue River, Oregon joins us again to discuss it.  Plus tips from Sgt. Bill, Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense, and Mia Anstine. 

Mia's Motivations with Mia Anstine - Mia shares her thoughts as a mother, as an instructor, about the tragic death of 13-year-old Malachi Hemphill in Philadelphia.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill - Sgt. Bill talks about what you need to be ready to shoot your first IDPA match.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense - Aaron Israel shares his thoughts on the fallibility of memory immediately after a dynamic critical incident.

Special Guest: Pr. Evan Goeglein - Pastor Evan Goeglein of Table Talk Radio joins us again to discuss two of the most commonly (mis)used passages from the Bible from Luke 22 and Matthew 26. Both events took place during the original Holy Week preceeding Christ's passion and Crucifixion and both are used on opposite sides of the gun rights debate.

Prayer of the Week
O almighty and eternal God, who through the death of Your Son has destroyed sin and death, and by his rising to life again restored innocence and everlasting life, that being delivered from the power of the devil, I might live under You in Your kingdom, grant that I may be forever comforted by true faith in the resurrection of Your dear Son. While I live, guide me with Your holy counsel, and when I die, give me the crown of life, that with all the holy angels and the elect I may praise and glorify You, world without end. Amen.

This week on Armed Lutheran Radio Lloyd and Pastor Bennett dissect a sermon from 2012 by a Presbyterian pastor who based her sermon title on a bogus quote from Saint Augustine of Hippo and suggests that we are all sinners if we don't vote for politicians who support gun control.  Aaron Israel responds to an question from a member of the Reformation Gun Club, and Sgt. Bill talks about preparing for a sanctioned IDPA match.  

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill
As Sgt. Bill heads to the Razorback Shootout in Perryville, Arkansas this weekend, he shares his thoughts on how to prepare for a major IDPA match.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense
Reformation Gun Club member Dave Hegenauer asks about training when there's nowhere nearby to train.

 Clinging to God and Guns
“Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are courage and anger; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.” That bogus quote is widely attributed to Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) and served as the inspiration for a sermon by a Presbyterian pastor in the wake of the Newtown school shooting in 2012. Funny thing is, though, try as we might, we could not find any evidence that Augustine ever said such a thing. And how does hope give birth to anger?

Prayer of the Week
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who sent Your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon Him our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross that all mankind should follow the example of His great humility, mercifully grant that we may both be guided by His patience in this life and also be made partakers of His resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

When we make the decision to carry a firearm or to purchase a firearm for home defense, there are a certain set of scenarios that we all envision and prepare for.  How many of us prepare to intervene in a violent assault on a stranger? How many of us prepare for that scenario when our loved ones are with us?  Aaron Kreag decided to save a woman who was being violently assaulted in 2014 but nothing prepared him for what he faced -- a non-compliant perpetrator, aggressive and poorly trained cops, constant trial delays, invasive media, potential employers who wanted nothing to do with him, and a victim who ultimately turned on him in court.  If you carry a gun, you need to hear this interview.  Plus tips from Sgt. Bill, Aaron Israel and Mia Anstine.

Ballistic Minute with Sergeant Bill - Looking to shake up your dry-fire routine? Sgt. Bill shares ideas for ways to make your dry for more fun and more challenging.

Aaron Israel of Fundamental Defense - Aaron Israel uses a terrible accident involving two 3-year-old Texas boys to teach an important lesson about how to safely stage firearms in your vehicle.

Mia's Motivations with Mia Anstine - Every year the TSA stops hundreds of travelers every year who attempt to sneak firearms past security in America's airports. Several have recently made it through. What would you do if this happened to you?

Special Guest: Aaron Kreag - In 2014 Aaron Kreag was on the way to the movies with his wife when he drove up on a violent assault and made the decision to intervene. He joins us to talk about that event and the aftermath. Nothing about that experience was what he expected and he shares the lessons he learned and how it changed his view of defending others.

Prayer of the Week - We implore You, almighty God, merciful Father, look upon Your people that by Your great goodness they may be governed and preserved evermore in body and soul; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
