Frank Mir on Guns, Self defense and realistic training.
Searched, didn't see this. COuld go in MMA, or the Weapons forum, but posted here as a catch-all.
Frank Mir talks guns, knives, and martial arts with Joanne of MMA Girls | SPIKE"
Skim-watched it, but liked what I heard. Good 2A viewpoint. And talks about importance of live sparring/training. WHo knew he started in Kempo? lol
Cool interview. Some of his firearm training sounds a bit on the unsafe side.
They usually list "Kempo black belt" in with his strengths when he's about to enter the cage. Brock Lesnar actually made fun of him for being a "glorified karate kid."
WHo knew he started in Kempo?
YouTube- Frank "The Karate Kid" Mir
yea, though I'm sure its effective.

using simunition or something similar would probably solve most safety issues. it sounds like a good idea for ANYONE who's using firearms, in my opinion.
I don't think he should be talking about Columbine being avoidable if teachers had firearms. Columbine was a result of extreme social factors developing two exiles into people who wanted to use their classmates and themselves to express the quality of life that they lived (bad in a nutshell explanation). Teachers with firearms is a really bad idea because school shooters very rarely survive their own rampage as do workplace shooters. Guns on teachers would make them bigger targets for shooters because they are now legitimate threats and teachers would now be targeted first and foremost.
That girl could not have looked more uncomfortable throughout that interview, especially when frank started talking about cutting people. Frank is a cool as **** dude in person, but the more i see his interviews, the more i think he is a little unbalanced
I generally agree with Mir's views, but I would make one counterpoint to the "people don't shoot up police stations because they have guns there". And that counterpoint is Fort Hood.
Actually, that just underscores the point. The attacker at Fort Hood chose a location where he knew the troops in the area would NOT be armed. He was familiar with the base because he worked and lived there and so was able to make a plan which let him avoid the likelihood of armed opponents even on a military base.
The soldiers in Fort Hood (and most bases in North America) had less access to firearms on base than they would walking down the street in civilian clothes on their own time. That fuckface had enough military experience to know this and take advantage of it.
