While you are thanking him for his sevice, ask him how he managed a Bronze Star with “V” without ever having been in combat. Personal mil-blogging from an FOB doesn’t earn you combat medals… or at least it shouldn’t.

Learn a bit more about Grisham, a nutbag of the first order, before you run an article defending him:
This guy has years of history acting like this. Today he is pushing this as 2nd Amendment issue. This guy would be anti-2nd Amendment if it got more traction.
Here he uses his 15-year-old son as a cameraman. At the end his son can be heard crying.
Notice that Grisham wears his Army rank on his hat, and tosses in that he is an Iraq and Afghanistan “war veteran.”
What he does not say is that he is a confirmed case of Stolen Valor (some people call it exaggerated valor). He did get an administrative bronze star in Iraq, but then lied (and Army Times, to their embarrassment, printed it) that he got it for taking out an entire Iraqi squad with a grenade and 9mm. This is BS and has been proven.
He also does not say that he is NOT an Afghanistan “war veteran” in the sense that people expect when they hear “war veteran.”
He never left Kandahar Kandahar Airfield. He saw zero combat. He spent his Afghanistan time blogging, and often complaining about his fragile mental state, and that his hand was trembling and that he was afraid of the rocket strikes. At one point, he published that a female major ordered him to continue working and not to hide out in the bunker. The man is a coward.
The Army sent him home about halfway through his Afghanistan tour, yet these days he says he completed his tour.
Ad hominem attacks do not deprive an individual of his natural law rights.
You ask us to know more about him. So, give us your sources on your allegations.

Send in the clowns, Mr. Fitnah?
Look in the mirror, and then repeat after me – “don’t bother… they’re here”.

Triple7, I’d like to tell you that you are a raving paranoid conspiracy theorist with no grasp of reality or common sense.
But I suspect I’d be incorrect in that assumption.

Exactly… just like on the battlefield, the enemy is an enemy right up to the moment he is incapacitated… then, he is another human being. If the perpetrator survives being shot, and you do not render aid (rendering aid can be as simple as talking to the perp if you don’t know any first aid, or if the wounds are too severe for you to handle… just be a human, and treat them with the dignity you wish they had shown you) until the authorities arrive, you are no better than the criminal bleeding on the floor. And if you choose to ‘make sure’ the perp is dead, you’ve crossed the line from defense to offense. Good to do in football, but it’s murder in real life.

As a long time CCW holder and gun owner for even longer than that, I’ve got to take exception to the tone of many commenters here. We, as responsible gun owners, are NOT judges, juries, nor executioners. We are indeed within our rights to use appropriate force, up to and including deadly force, to stop an attack upon ourselves or others, but we are not licensed to kill. When you shoot an attacker or an intruder, you are shooting to STOP the attack from proceeding. The judgment of how many rounds to fire remains up to the gun owner, but remember that you are shooting to STOP the criminal.
Having said that, I will also state that when effectively shooting to stop, you are shooting for the center of mass, so it IS entirely possible the criminal will die. If he does, he does… either way, the attack is stopped. If you shoot to kill, and ensure the criminal is dead, you may be opening yourself up to some serious legal troubles, especially if you are stupid enough to say that’s what you did. As far as the advisability of saying that’s what you WOULD do if you were in the situation, especially online where records last forever, well, you might just be shooting YOURSELF in the a** by doing that. But, well, what the hell… it’s your a**: do with it what you will. Me, I’ll shoot to stop. And as for you criminals, that’s about 2 rounds a second until you stop moving. Got it?
Well said.... added a few points I missed on my post.
Now in my house, he would have been met with an AR with 30 rounds, since unknow # of intruders... but at no point would I EVER EMPTY a clip in a person, if you aim and hit, it should not take but a couple rounds. Its your house, use the cover you got, stop the threat then stop shooting, stay behind cover till your possitive threat is stoped... then secure the threat. But I could never go and finish him, I coul not just let a man lay and die once he was not threat. Im a better person than that.

Florida has issued over 100 Honorary Consul tags. And for those wondering, foreign governments name their honorary consuls, not the US government, or the military.
