Massad Ayoob: “The Bad Ass Of Self-defense.” + Commentary on Civil Unrest and the Great Reset.

Please share this post.

“Massad F. Ayoob (born July 20, 1948) is an American firearms and self-defense instructor. He has taught police techniques and civilian self-defense to both law enforcement officers and private citizens since 1974. He was the director of the Lethal Force Institute in Concord, New Hampshire, from 1981 to 2009, and now operates his own company.[1] Ayoob has appeared as an expert witness in several trials. He served as a part-time police officer in New Hampshire since 1972 and retired in 2017 with the rank of Captain from the Grantham, New Hampshire, police department.[2] On September 30th 2020, Ayoob was named president[3] of the Second Amendment Foundation. His nickname is “the bad ass of self-defense.”

Ayoob has authored several books and more than 1,000 articles on firearms, combat techniques, self-defense, and legal issues, and has served in an editorial capacity for Guns Magazine, American Handgunner, Gun Week, Guns & Ammo and Combat Handguns. Since 1995, he has written self-defense and firearms related articles for Backwoods Home Magazine. He also has a featured segment on the television show Personal Defense TV, which is broadcast on the Sportsman Channel in the US.

Ayoob has appeared in the courtroom as a testifying police officer, expert witness, and police prosecutor. Ayoob is believed to be the only non-attorney to serve as Vice Chairman of the Forensic Evidence Committee of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), a position he formerly held.His course for attorneys, titled “The Management of the Lethal Force/Deadly Weapons Case”, was, according to Jeffrey Weiner: “the best course for everything you need to know but are never taught in law school.”

I have only just become aware of the work of Massad Ayoob…. a third generation American of Syrian ancestry… Expert and instructor on firearms, defender of the Second Amendment.
This guy speaks with an air of authority, and a depth of wisdom on matters of gun safety and Law that in my limited opinion has few peers.
Having watched several conversational You Tube videos I was very impressed… for example his videos discussing ‘Mob violence’ and The Kyle Rittenhouse trial (Below).

Massad Ayoob’s opinion about the Kyle Rittenhouse trial – Critical Mas episode 22

It must be remembered that Ayoob speaks from ‘the US Legal perspective’ which varies from State to State and from my home country New Zealand’s Legal system.

Given the current Civil Unrest that has been purposefully orchestrated in US cities by the George Soros/ Democrat funded Criminal organisations posing as ‘Protest movements’ for the sake of destabilizing their society (and especially to blacken Trumps otherwise spectacular Presidency) … the destruction, violence, murder, and chaos the ensued… and what transpired with regards to Kyle Rittenhouse in the midst of all this obviously stimulated Ayoob’s commentary on these related subjects, and what a wealth of insight and good advice he proffers!
Not only on the legalities that saw Rittenhouse being acquitted of any wrongdoing, but also on the nuances of being in a situation where there is Mob violence occurring… how best to handle your self defense in that situation.
Avoiding the cesspool… He made no personal commentary on the politics of these events.

Watching Ayoob Videos we can see he certainly is no ‘Whack Anti-Police Gun Lunatic’ … much of his advice seeks to de-escalate any tensions when interactions occur between Gun owners and Police (for example when you get a knock at the door at 3am in the morning… or when you have a firearm and are pulled over).
He promotes respect and understanding… and speaks from first hand experience seeking peaceful outcomes.

That is about all I have to say about my impressions of this self defense firearms expert.
I will watch more of his instructional videos and commentary.

I made this Blog not only to inform others about this man’s important work, but also to serve as a ‘Who’s who reference for important Libertarians and Conservatives here at Eternal Vigilance Blog.

Postscript: Guns, Civil Unrest, and the Globalist Agenda.

The following ruminations I thought best to add as a postscript given they are my thoughts that should not be inferred to have anything to do with Massad Ayoob’s personal beliefs about the state of the world… of which I have no idea.

New Zealand needs our own ‘Second Amendment’.
This became esp obvious with regards to the Christchurch Terror attack and the Governments Jackbooted response.
Ardern exploited the attack as an opportunity to push her anti-gun population disarmament agenda.

Self Defense and Gun Laws are matters of great importance to the Libertarian ideology of a Free society… which are at complete variance from the Socialist Totalitarian Police State in which Tyranny reigns unchecked upon a defenseless and subjugated slave and brainwashed population who believe their Prison walls are keeping them safe.

New Zealanders do ‘technically’ have the legal right to self defense yet it is very nuanced and we don’t have the legal right as citizens to own pistols for self-defence.
As a Libertarian I advocate for Law reform to recognise our just right to do so yet we have a Government, and Police force, and social conditioned Sheepish population that are antagonistic to this legitimate right being recognised in Law… so I have no delusions about the Nil prospects of this law reform happening any time soon.
Keep this in mind when we contemplate how defenseless this policy left the victims of Brenton Tarrant in his Barbaric Massacres at the Christchurch Mosques in 2018.
I made this point as I prepared to deliver an oral submission to the Government inquiry into how this atrocity occurred and what could be done to prevent such a thing happening again… yet Bizarrely… having initially received the invitation to speak… They failed to inform me of a place and time to appear… so my argument that was founded upon Bearing arms for self defense was not herd in the public hearing.
The Ardern Reigime and Police had always sought to confiscate Guns from Law abiding New Zealanders and reduce their legal rights… and to pseudo-justify this approach… the last thing they wanted is to face open reasoned criticism against their oppressive agenda.

I had already made a written submission that was ‘supposedly considered’ and put into the public record.

All I could do is put my undelivered oral submission onto ‘Eternal Vigilance Blog’ and share it on social media.

IMO it is conspiracy fact… an open secret spoken out loud and at the same time denied… that the Globalist Cabal of Schwab/ Soros Socialist minions are seeking to overthrow Western democracies and install their New World Order and we can see a whole raft of suicidal policies being enacted by these traitors against the best interests of their own peoples.

The madness of their policies is starting to cause massive pains and social backlash… The Truckers protest in Cannada, The Farmers rebellion in the Netherlands, and the *Real insurrection* in Shri Lanka. Even Brexit can be seen in this light.

The Globalists openly admit their ‘Great Reset’ will cause big pain to populations around the Globe and in anticipation of this they have been busy Politicising and Militarising Police forces and brainwashing them into suppressing the legitimate Democratic Rights of their people to Publicly speak, to rally for protests, etc and I believe to consider anti-Globalist sentiments as being ‘a high risk and dangerous source of Domestic terrorism’… setting up the rationale for arresting and suppressing dissent… kinda like ‘Enemies of the State’ getting rounded up in North Korea… China… only this is being promoted now in the once Freer West.

The Sun is setting fast upon the West…. to the degree that in the space of a few years there has become a Massive push against Free speech, and the deplatforming of anyone and everyone who dares critisise the Far left Globalist agenda… or to openly discuss the activities of George Soros Just to hold such opinions as I have expressed above is almost illegal.
You get put on a ‘Watch list’ for expressing such things… The government now has powerful Tech that can ‘insure’ ‘misinformation’ does not reach the masses via the internet.

In New Zealand the media is bought and paid for by the Ardern Regime and she tells the sheeple her government must be their ‘single source of truth’
All this is designed to keep as many sheeple wallowing in indifference while these traitors sell out our country right in front of them… and most of all they seek to spook the useful idiots into thinking the disarmament of the population is for their own safety rather than what it really is… as it has always historically been… a precursor to the establishment of Brutal tyrannies… and the enslavement of whole populations… this is the chief reason why the US Democrats are hell bent to abolish the Second amendment…to render Americans incapable of standing up to their oppressive regime… remember that was the fundamental reason why the Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment to Keep Americans Free from tyranny by their own government… and it was penned into the founding document of the United States… The Declaration of Independence… the peoples right to overthrow oppressive government.

The Second Amendment stands firmly in the way of The Globalist New World Order because it ensures the People have some means of self defense against being subjugated.

I personally believe the greatest power we the people have is Passive resistance and peaceful civil disobedience (No rioting… No Violence of any sort)… and that is what I advocate for… while we are able to do so.

Destruction of now-illegal guns ‘desecration of NZ history’, shooting champion says

Ex Act Party Leader Rodney Hide takes David Seymour to task for his Shameful Stance on the Anti- Covid 19 Mandates Freedom Protests.

Read full statement here

CLASSIC! Hide pouring well deserved scorn on PATHETIC David Seymour and his utter failure to defend the rights of New Zealanders reeling under the onslaught of Far Left PM Ardern’s Socialist tyrannical Covid measures!
Hide in particular leads by example saying he personally supports the Anti Mandate Protests currently being staged outside the Beehive over the past several weeks.
In this Rodney derides Seymour for his petty complaints about the protests ‘ruining the grass’.
Seymour displays his utter disconnect with how vicious Ardern’s policies have been upon those who will not bow before her. Seymour seems to think the behavior of the protests have been unduly Riotous and Hateful.
Hide on the other hand has a far better understanding of the oppression and injustice the protesters have endured at the hands of Ardern, and marvels at their restraint!

That Hide had to give Seymour such a basic lesion on Rights and Freedom speaks volumes about Seymour’s feeble apprehension of the very core values and principles he claims to champion!

Under Seymour Act has become the phoney Freedom party!
In reality Act is today merely the ‘David Seymour party’ in the same way New Zealand First is the ‘Winston First’ party.
Act policies are not principles… but what ever horse shit comes out of David Seymour’s pea-brain.
It is patently obvious that none of Act’s other Mp’s who owe their positions to Seymour is allowed to dissent from their Leaders dictates…. How shameful none of them has had the courage to publicly dissent from David’s shameful support of the Ardern regimes Covid 19 tyranny.

Despite my reservations… and because of a dearth of alternatives…over the last 10 years I have done my best to try and support Act and encourage David Seymour to walk the principled path only to be disappointed *every time*.


Current Act Party Leader David Seymour. (photo credit here)

Act picked up a lot of support last election when David came out in opposition to Ardern’s new gun prohibitions, yet it turns out that this stand was not taken because of ideological integrity but from pragmatic opportunism in fortuitous alignment with David’s own capricious enjoyment of shooting.
This seems to be the essential criteria.
We must ask if David himself had a personal aversion to shooting would he have come out in support of Gun owners rights on principle alone?
That is highly unlikely… and that is why I say he operates very much the same way as Winston Peters… via his own whims and inclinations… fishing for votes… not guided by principle.
He will use principles only when he believes there is a vote in it for him… otherwise he will disregard them at his own pleasure.

David proved his claims to be a defender of the principle of Free Speech were exposed when he failed to condemn the deplatforming and persecution of Youtuber Lee Williams. That again was a classic example where David allowed his personal dislike of Lee to cloud his judgement.
This showed Seymour was simply politicking for votes when he claimed to champion Free Speech.
And he will sit on his hands and allow injustices if he does not like you.
That is how petty he is.

Read: WILL DAVID SEYMOUR ABDICATE THE FIGHT FOR FREE SPEECH TO JUDITH COLLINS? A CONFRONTATION WITH LEE WILLIAMS.

Though I have been absolutely disgusted with Seymour’s failure to oppose Ardern’s Rampant Covid 19 Tyranny that has been enslaving and destroying lives, The last straw for me was earlier than the 2019 Pandemic when David supported Ardern’s Ultra-radical Abortion laws that allow children born alive after failed abortions to be left without medical assistance on the slab… to die!
This again demonstrated Seymour’s complete lack of understanding about Rights and responsibilities!

I will never vote Act as long as David Seymour is Leader.
He is a Flake and a fraud… a Politician in the worst sense!
In our Nations hour of need he has been found wanting.
He has supported the destruction of our Nation by Ardern.

Seymour doesn’t even have enough brain cells to appreciate the Great Reset is a real thing!

Hopefully by the 2023 Election the newly invigorated Freedom movement in New Zealand will have formed a vote-worthy alternative to represent Freedom lovers who want to Constitutionally protect our nation from such treasonous, Radical, and patently tyrannical policies as were enacted under Ardern’s 2 terms.

We want our Country Back!

END The Mandates!
Undo all Ardern’s tyrannical Legislation.
We must amend and entrench the Bill of Rights, esp section 11!
‘Every person has the right to refuse to undergo any medical treatment’.
Private companies must be held to uphold the Bill of Rights.

Update: Rodney Hide’s article seems to have touched a nerve with Seymour as he has ‘appeared’ in public opening up a dialogue with the protesters…
Watch the video below.
By supporting Arderns tyranny Seymour has dug a big hole for himself and Act’s support is in decline.

Don’t you think it is hypocritical for him to say that he only agreed to talk with the Protesters because ‘a Friend in business who was being adversely affected by the protests’ asked him to meet and open dialogue. He says it is ‘unacceptable’ that the protests have impacted on Wellington businesses like this, and yet where was David’s voice opposing the impact on business of all the lockdowns, the heavy borrowing, and esp the thousands of Job losses of New Zealanders via Ardern’s Vaccine mandates?
You know… the very things that have caused New Zealanders to exercise their democratic right to congregate in Wellington to express their anger???
Where was his condemnation and opposition to the passing of Legislation that violated the Bill of Rights?

Update 2.
My goodness… even ‘Dame’ Tariana Turia has now come out in ‘whole hearted support’ of the Anti-mandate protesters against the Ardern Regime!
She even says she is against the mandates *in Principle*!
She even see’s through the Government attempts to paint this protest as criminal and violent.
Now I am a long term critic of Turia’s separatist politics yet in this broadcast … On all points she shows superior moral courage than Seymour on this current issue and deserves commendation.

Listen to No confidence in Ardern – Dame Tariana Turia
