    Here's an excellent articulation of the concept of SYG.

    So that is the man I've heard so much about?

    He reminds me of Rip Torn a lot.

    This is the best Mas Ayoob video I've ever seen and in a suit/tie behind a podium before a well-known, well-regarded institutional think tank audience I'd say Mas not only hit a grand slam but also set the bar exceedingly high for anyone else succinctly explaining and defending our Second Amendment civil rights. In his other videos I missed his speaking ability; after this video there's no doubt the man is a polished and effective spokesman who definitely knows his subject.

    This is a video I will view at least several times because there's a whole lot of information packed into less than a quarter hour. Bravo, Mas; and thanks to the OP for putting the link here.

    That was excellent. Mas was clear, concise, and efficient. The amount of topics covered in that relatively brief video is amazing.

    Outstanding speech by Massad. I also watched the whole panel discussion put up by Sam if you put all of them together in context it was very good and very informative. Thanks to ADK and Sam for the input. Enjoyed it immensely.

    He has just given us a great example of how we need to present and conduct our selves. The sheeple don't think Like us sheep dogs do...while they may say that they don't agree with what he says or stands for, any half educated person can see that he is a PROFESSIONAL gun owner and responsible human being.

    I have known Mas since 1987, and he has usually been a gentleman.

    Been a HUGE Ayoob fan for about thirty five years. I have NEVER heard him say anything legally or tactically that I could find one thing wrong with. Just add this to the list of greatness. Good job as usual, Mas.
