Approximately 2.5 million times each year, Good Guys with Guns were able to stop a violent crime in its tracks! But the mainstream media doesn't tell you that.
A woman lawfully carrying a concealed handgun reduces the likelihood that she'll be murdered by 300% to 400%! But again, the mainstream media doesn't tell you that either.
This app shares the true stories of self-defense that the mainstream media "conveniently" leaves out.
Every story is documented with sources clearly cited.
Are you content with being a victim? Or would you rather be among the Good Guys with Guns?

If you've ever wondered what day it is, or have had someone ask you, what better way to find out than having viral pop-singer Rebecca Black tell you? And not just on Friday, Friday!
Who is Rebecca Black? An American teenager (born June 21, 1997) gained worldwide notoriety with her single entitled "Friday" in 2011 when her music video made its debut on YouTube. "Friday" was co-written and produced by Clarence Jey and Patrice Wilson of ARK Music Factory was reportedly dubbed "light in the lyrics" by Rebecca Black's mother; Rebecca responded that she simply "sang it as they wrote it, Mom".
Opinions on the song are mixed with some hating it, some loving it, but the majority either "hate to love it" or "love to hate it". Critics even called it "the worst song ever". As of May 10, 2011, the video had amassed more than 135 million views.
The song follows Rebecca Black as a "typical teenager from waking up, eating cold cereal for breakfast, waiting for the school bus, and catching a ride to school with her friends (after debating which seat she should take). In the evening (after another seating debate) she and and her friends (Benni Cinkle and another girl) ride to a party. We're also provided with the information that Thursday is before Friday, Saturday comes after Friday, and Sunday comes afterwards.
- This app utilizes very short sound-bytes from the song which are in compliance with the Fair-Use clause of the Copyright Act of 1976, and as a parody of the original, is protected as Free Speech.
- Additionally, Courts have held that The First Amendment and the laws of many states protect the use of someone's name or likeness in creative works and other forms of entertainment, such as is being done in this app.

Who is Joe the Web Guy?
He was hired by his current employer to fill the position of Web Application Developer left vacant by their previous Web Developer. Previously Joe worked for an advertising agency as their interactive Technology Director, and developed projects for clients such as 3M HIS, Novell, 3COM, and Sundance Resort. He performed contract work for a local dot com, building their first B2C e-commerce shopping cart solution. He even worked for a local pseudo-celebrity (Dell "SUPERDELL" Schanze) where he wore many hats (including Sharepoint Developer and various technical and management positions).
Joe wass a Web of Trust Notary, endorsed by Thawte (a Verisign company), and experienced with x.590 Digital Signature Certificates. Joe believes in the widespread use of PKI Encryption technologies and methodologies as potentially being the "magic bullet" in eliminating online fraud, identity theft, and even casual snooping.
Give Joe a pair of headphones and a can of anything "cold and caffeinated" and he can code for hours on end. He can work efficiently as a solo developer and is also at-home when working as part of a development team.
When asked, Joe tells people that it's not really that he knows all that much, rather that he's just really good at figuring things out.
In the years since Joe began his employment with his current employer he has been instrumental in realizing several projects and keeps existing sites and solutions up-to-date and running smoothly.
Although Joe can work inside the constraints and scope of a project, he has a hard time "thinking inside the box" and can often see the larger picture and offer ideas, thoughts, or "what-if" scenarios that can help "future-proof" a given project to extend the value and business-returns.
His website, JoeTheWebGuy.net, and its accompanying podcast are the ongoing collection of things Joe has learned about development, the web, and technology in general. He now presents to you this web app so you can keep up-to-date will that fountain of information on-the-go!
The Gun Rights Network (GRN) includes some 19 regular podcasts.
Collectively, the Gun Rights Network brings together young and old, male and female, black and white in a broad spectrum of strong and articulate voices that speak for Constitutional Rights, human rights, and protection of the innocent, as well as a celebration of the centuries-old lore of firearms.
In alphabetical order, the regular podcasts include:
- Armed Citizens Podcast comes from 2nd Amendment activist Mick McArt, bringing the listener a mix of useful news and essays that touch on gun owners’ civil rights.
- Citizen Armed is the newest podcast in the group. Spencer Bennett subtitles his cast “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love My Gun.” Personal protection and home security are among the topics, which encourage safe fun with guns as well as more serious issues of personal rights.
- Firearms Café features Tony Brown, offering a broad overview of political and activist thinking related to gun ownership.
- Gun Dudes features Tom, Carl, Stan, and Travis who bring a youthfully exuberant touch of Generation X to the graying world of gun ownership advocacy. Hilarious humor is leavened with serious commentary and news from actual incidents of armed citizens’ self-defense.
- Gun Rights Advocates is Mark Vanderberg’s own podcast. Mark has tirelessly worked for positive change in the political arena, and his casts often bring a “you are there” flavor as he reports on a given political demonstration or similar event.
- Gun Rights Alert as its title implies, brings up to date alerts from gun rights organizations to people to busy to keep track of the multiple sources on their own. Alan Richmond is the producer.
- Practical Defense features Alex Haddox of Los Angeles, who combines a strong martial arts background with practical crime prevention tips suitable for people from all walks of life. A pro-Second Amendment show, Alex’s cast is particularly useful to non-gun people for its crime prevention content, while getting a pro-gun-rights message across to that often-neglected audience as well.
- ProArms Podcast consists of a group of eight competitive shooters, most of whom are connected with the firearms industry: preditor Gail Pepin, host Steve Denney, along with Massad Ayoob, Chris Christian, Herman Gunter, Mike Larney, and Jon and Terri Strayer. Content ranges from interviews with gunfight survivors, top instructors, gun industry execs, and pistol champions to round-table discussions of certain types of defensive firearms.
- Gun Nation comes from Doc Wesson, the pseudonym of a firearms industry professional whose shows range from interviews with other professionals to explanatory seminars on ballistics. A regular feature on Gun Nation is “Average Joe,” with detailed gun reviews that have created a loyal and appreciative audience.
