MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – October 12, 2017 – In the second episode of “Just the FACTs,” author and instructor Massad Ayoob discussed a number of topics, including his new book, expert testimony, the 5-Point Checklist and more. At the end of the episode, Ayoob answered questions from the audience during an extended Q&A session. Like all “Just the FACTs” episodes, the interview was filmed with the new FACT™ Weapon-Mounted Cameras (WMC™).

Massad Ayoob is a world-renowned firearms and self-defense instructor, business owner, author and knife designer. For over 40 years, he has trained law enforcement personnel and private citizens in combat techniques, personal defense, firearms and legal issues. He has authored several books and more than one thousand articles on related topics and has served in an editorial capacity for publications like Guns & Ammo, Combat Handguns and others. Ayoob frequently serves as an expert witness in trials where use-of-force or self-defense concerns are argued. He has also served as a part-time police officer in three departments.

“It was an honor to have industry legend Massad Ayoob join us in the second episode of ‘Just the FACTs’ to discuss everything from his new book to the current political climate,” said Viridian President and CEO Brian Hedeen. “With more than four decades of defensive training experience, Massad offers a great deal of insight into firearms law, self-defense and expert testimony. This episode is a great starting point for those interested in personal protection, and we encourage everyone to pick up a copy of Massad’s book, ‘Straight Talk on Armed Defense,’ to continue learning more.”
