Two Press Releases from Front Sight

Psych Drugs-- Not Guns-- Doing the Killing

Las Vegas, Nevada: Several years ago, I asked a very pointed question in a press release sent to the National Wire Service immediately following the killings at Columbine High School.

A few days after the Virginia Tech Massacre, I again asked the same very direct question.

I asked, "How many times must we experience another Littleton, Colorado or Virginia Tech before we wake up, study the research and adopt policies which actually reduce crime and begin saving our children instead of leaving them helpless victims when the next psych drug user snaps?"

After Columbine, while most journalists and lawmakers focused on whether or not my answer to protecting children by arming teachers was the right solution, it seems everyone missed my understanding of the root cause that drove these kids to commit such atrocities! The root cause was and continues to be the psych drugs that are being pushed on our children! In some cases children as young as kindergarten age!

After Columbine, nobody wanted to believe the founder and director of the nation's largest firearms training institute when he pointed his finger at psych drugs as the cause of the problem. During numerous radio, TV and newspaper interviews I would bring it up and it would fall on deaf ears with no reaction at all.

So I spent $300,000 to create a Hollywood produced, award winning DVD entitled Front Sight Story, Chapter One: Your Legacy. In "Your Legacy," I interviewed people of age who actually experienced an America when guns were so freely available to children and youth, that you could order them through the mail with no ID required, no waiting period, and literally carry them to school to place in the back of the classroom with no problems at all.

During this time, when guns were the most accessible in our country's entire history, there were no school shootings, drive by shootings, or murderous teenage rampages.

What changed? Here is what changed: Powerful psych drugs were developed and became the profitable, prescription answer to a wide variety of extremely questionable if not outright fabricated mental disorder diagnosis of youth. Little Johnny doesn't want to go to school? Take this pill... Little Johnny isn't learning? Take this pill... Little Johnny feels anxious? Take this pill... Little Johnny is sad? Take this pill... Little Johnny is restless? Take this pill... Little Johnny is rebellious? Take this pill...

And once Little Johnny started taking the brightly colored pills to handle the normal challenges of youth that every prior generation had overcome naturally through the process of social maturity, Little Johnny began the downward spiral of adverse prescription drug side effects leading to multiple prescription, psycho drug cocktails... stronger drugs... physical and psychological dependency... and the now infamous and reoccurring homicidal and suicidal reactions caused by these very powerful, mind bending drugs.

There is a truism I keep posted on the wall above my computer. It reads, "People of integrity expect to be believed. When they are not, they let time prove them right."

Well, unfortunately and tragically in this case, time has proven me right. Numerous school shootings over the last several years ALL linked to children and teens under the influence of powerful, prescribed psych drugs!

Psych Drugs, NOT GUNS, Are the Common Deadly Thread in School Shootings!

And now, instead of Dr. Ignatius Piazza, the Founder and Director of Front Sight saying, Its Psych Drugs-- Not Guns-- Doing the Killing, I am getting assistance in spreading my message from some of the most unlikely, anti-gun sources you could ever imagine...

See the link below to watch what Michael Moore, the Darling of the Liberal Left, Anti-Gun Media now has to say about the cause of Columbine.

Michael and I may never agree about the importance of an armed society to the freedom and protection of law abiding citizens or the fallacy of gun control, but we could be best friends in our efforts to expose the truth about the profit driven history of psych drug prescriptions systematically creating homicidal and suicidal monsters out of our youth in America. In fact, I stand ready and willing to assist Michael Moore in any way possible on such an endeavor.

Now that people on both sides of the gun control debate agree that psych drugs are creating suicidal and homicidal maniacs out of our youth, the time has come to expose the truth to all of America.

You can help save today's youth from further psych drug abuse and protect America's next generation from the horrors of psych drug prescriptions. It only takes 10% of the population to unite, stand up and say, "No more!" for social movements to succeed. You CAN do something about this!

Simply spread this press release far and wide to all on your lists and ask your friends and family to do the same. Instead of circulating the latest joke or cartoon of the week, make the entirety of this earth-shattering truth the next e-mail that goes 'round the world! Don't rely on anyone else to do what you should do. Don't be apathetic.

Take one minute to do the right thing and you will feel great about it for the rest of your life because the future children you save from being shot by a psych drugged maniac may be your own children or grandchildren...

See the links below for more irrefutable proof of the connection between psych drugs and school shootings... It's Psych Drugs, Not Guns, Doing the Killing!

Utah University Students Add CWP to Their Degrees

Las Vegas, Nevada: Students of Utah universities now have the opportunity to add the initials CWP (Concealed Weapon Permit) to their names and receive a level of training with a handgun that exceeds law enforcement and military standards all at the expense of Dr. Ignatius Piazza and his Front Sight Firearms Training Institute.

After hearing that Utah Legislators had lifted the Utah University ban against students carry concealed weapons on campus, Dr. Piazza, the Founder and Director of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute near Las Vegas, Nevada wants every law-abiding, full-time university student to have the opportunity to attend Front Sight's Five Day Armed Citizen Course and Piazza is willing to pay the $2,500 course tuition for each student.

When asked why, Piazza stated, "I have always tried to lead by example so I am personally supporting the wise decision of the Utah Legislators. If our university students are old enough to fight for our freedom and die in Iraq with a machine gun in their hands, then with Front Sight's responsible training under their belts, they are certainly old enough and intelligent enough to carry a concealed handgun on college campuses to protect themselves, classmates, and faculty from the next homicidal and suicidal psych drug failure. I want to give Utah University students the comfort of skill at arms that will forever protect them and those around them. This is the least I can do to be a positive part of the real and immediate solution to stop random gun violence in our academic institutions."

Front Sight's Five Day Armed Citizen Course has been hailed by private citizens and law enforcement alike as one of the most comprehensive handgun training courses in the world and results in graduates walking away with all the certification, finger prints, photos and paperwork to successfully apply for concealed weapon permits in Nevada, Florida, and Utah. Due to reciprocity laws, securing these three Concealed Carry Permits will allow a graduate of Front Sight's Five Day Armed Citizen Course to legally carry a concealed handgun in over 30 states in the US.

Roland Burk, currently serving and protecting in Utah, is a man who would know. Says Burk, "As a full time peace officer, soldier, and combat veteran, I have received a large amount of firearms training in the last decade. Some of the best training I have received, has not been provided through my law enforcement and military training. Instead it has come at my personal expense, through classes at Front Sight. I have seen Front Sight take someone who has never fired a gun before, and turn them into safe, educated, capable, and proficient, armed citizen. The type of armed citizen who is then able to save dozens of innocent lives." Burk adds, "I believe everyone has the right, and to a certain extent the duty, to protect themselves and those around them."

Having previously served for 16 years as a Department Director for Utah State University, Scott Bradley who has also attended courses at Front Sight is delighted and amazed at the incredible opportunity available for Utah university students. Scott Bradley states, "As one who has attended numerous classes at Front Sight, I can attest to the quality and comprehensive nature of the instruction. In every case, I have found the courses to be vastly superior to any instruction I have previously received, including my own military training experience." Bradley adds, "The Utah Legislature has wisely recognized a great truth which has been well understood for centuries: That the right to defend one's self, one's loved ones, and our fellow man is an inherent God-given right-a right that must be recognized and preserved. Dr. Piazza should be commended and recognized for his generous offer of this excellent and potentially life-saving training at no cost to university students. I hope thousands will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity."

In order to take advantage of Dr. Ignatius Piazza's offer full-time students of Utah universities simply follow these three easy steps:

1. Go to www.frontsight.com and subscribe to Dr. Piazza's free 15 Gun Training Reports and when the subscription thank you page is revealed, order Front Sight's free brochure and DVD.

2. Then go to Front Sight's Course Schedule page and select your Five Day Armed Citizen Course date.

3. Print out the Application for Training page. Complete the Application for Training including the Statement of No Criminal History, Substance Abuse, or Mental Illness. Have someone, other than a family member, who has known you for five years, sign the Character Witness Statement. Supply payment for the Criminal Background Check and attach a document from your university indicating you are a current full-time student taking at least 12 Semester Units of classes.

Mail the documentation in Step 3 to Front Sight at least two weeks prior to the Five Day Armed Citizen Course you select and Dr. Piazza will pay for your $2,500 tuition, enroll you in the course and Front sight will e-mail a Confirmation of Enrollment letter to you.

Piazza adds, "I sincerely hope we are inundated with university students from Utah attending our Five Day Armed Citizen Course. Today's university students are tomorrow's leaders. I want our future leaders to experience first hand the comfort and confidence that comes having a gun with the skill to use it to defend yourself, your community, and your country. Hopefully other states will follow Utah's lead as Front Sight stands ready to assist them when they do."

Senator Bob Beers of Nevada agrees with his peers from Utah and supports Piazza's efforts to train university students to carry a concealed handgun on campus. Says Senator Beers, "Nevada's legislative session has just over one month left, and several Second Amendment bills are still in play. As well, lawmakers' sensitivity to our citizens' responsibilities of self-defense seem heightened. It would be wonderful if Nevada's university students could join Utah's in keeping campuses safe and secure."
