Crowd Defense™ now on

Sup­port the Project Here:

You’ve seen left­ist mobs attack Trump sup­port­ers and free speech activists. You’ve seen the police dis­arm and then fail to pro­tect them.  And you have seen those Trump sup­ports arrest­ed when they defend them­selves and oth­ers.  But, vio­lence doesn’t only take place at demon­stra­tions and oth­er places where peo­ple might expect it.  There are also ter­ror­ist attacks and mass shoot­ings. Vio­lence can erupt at any pub­lic event. It’s time we have our own pol­i­cy to defend against vio­lence by a crowd, from a crowd, and with­in a crowd.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly no such pol­i­cy exists for civil­ians on the right to use to defend them­selves while min­i­miz­ing legal risk. It should be obvi­ous that the ene­mies of lib­er­ty have a pol­i­cy to per­pe­trate these attacks. That pol­i­cy includes: con­ceal­ing iden­ti­ty, strik­ing and leav­ing, wear­ing the same col­or of clothes, etc. We also need a pol­i­cy that serves our pure­ly, legal inter­ests of self and crowd defense. Crowd Defense is ded­i­cat­ed to devel­op­ing poli­cies to defend our­selves while min­i­miz­ing legal risk.

Var­i­ous groups are tak­ing on the respon­si­bil­i­ty of defend­ing them­selves and oth­ers. But, this respon­si­bil­i­ty should not fall on the shoul­ders of only a few. We can do more to orga­nize in the face of an attack so that all defend­ers are on the same page to defend effec­tive­ly. Every­one can be involved in defend­ing each oth­er and min­i­miz­ing legal risk.

Crowd Defense, under the lead­er­ship of defense instruc­tor and attor­ney Matthew Nolan, will devel­op this pol­i­cy in coop­er­a­tion with trust­ed mil­i­tary and police who have a deep com­mit­ment to train­ing civil­ians. This is not “mar­tial arts.”  It is a strate­gic pol­i­cy for defense that is meant for speedy imple­men­ta­tion with lit­tle to no train­ing.  In the same way that “stop, drop, and roll” became a well-known pol­i­cy, Crowd Defense will also present a pol­i­cy that is as sim­ple as pos­si­ble.  It will, of course, be more com­plex than the fire pro­to­col, but it will be as min­i­mal as pos­si­ble.

Pri­or­i­ty #1: Cre­ate a Draft Pol­i­cy for Imme­di­ate Release. A draft pol­i­cy must be released as soon as pos­si­ble.  Right lean­ing speech­es will con­tin­ue to face left­ist aggres­sion for some time.  In addi­tion, street crime always increas­es when the weath­er get warmer.  Some promi­nent peo­ple and police are prepar­ing for a sum­mer of polit­i­cal vio­lence.  We must begin orga­niz­ing these ideas imme­di­ate­ly before actu­al rec­om­men­da­tions can be memo­ri­al­ized.

You can pro­vide a con­tri­bu­tion on to will help advance this project. You will also receive a pre-order price of $129 on a 15” by 11” bal­lis­tic back­pack insert capa­ble of stop­ping 44 mag­num bul­lets.  Com­peti­tor prices on a sim­i­lar­ly sized insert can be upwards of $190.  The bal­lis­tic mate­r­i­al is rec­om­mend­ed to be replaced every 7 years.  But, that takes into account hard use and a high like­li­hood of a shoot­ing.  If you are rough with it and antic­i­pate a high lev­el of risk, replace it every 7 years.  If you are gen­tle with it and don’t antic­i­pate a high lev­el of risk, you could use it longer.  That means that you could get one of these for your kid on the first day of 1st grade and not replace it until high school grad­u­a­tion day.

If you don’t want a back­pack insert, a gra­tu­ity is also deeply appre­ci­at­ed.

Your con­tri­bu­tion will go toward pay­ing for the equip­ment, legal work, and expens­es nec­es­sary to devel­op the Crowd Defense pol­i­cy. I want to pro­duce a longer video show­ing the phys­i­cal tech­niques in a mul­ti­ple attack­er vs mul­ti­ple defend­er for­mat as soon as possible—perhaps even before a draft pol­i­cy can be released.  I have already made the fol­low­ing videos.  In doing so, I con­firmed that the back­pack insert offers the best bal­ance of pro­tec­tion and legal risk.

How to build a shield:

Legal issues regard­ing shields:

So, many peo­ple aren’t will­ing to even con­sid­er these issues, let alone sup­port them. It’s for this rea­son that I call my con­trib­u­tors “vision­ar­ies.”  Thank you for tak­ing the threats to our free­dom seri­ous­ly and sup­port­ing Crowd Defense.
