Ignatius Piazza is Intent to Batter Down Ignorance

Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of America's most successful shooting school has an interesting situation for America. Almost every single day, you put your life into the hands of hundreds, or even thousands, of other individuals. Just about every day, Americans commit their lives to a risk that when viewed objectively is ridiculously dangerous. Americans put their bodies into a half-ton slab of steel and plastic and hurtle themselves at startling speeds next to and at and in between other half-ton slabs of steel and plastic. All it would take would be for one person to accidentally, or intentionally, turn the wheel driving this slab into another slab, and suddenly a huge pile-up would occur; many lives would be lost.

In this example here, we are obviously speaking of automobiles, one of the most dangerous tools in America today—and yet Americans don't typically fear them. Why, then, are firearms feared so much? Why can't Americans face firearms with the same passive acceptance as they give to cars? Cars are just as dangerous as guns, in the same wrong hands.

It is the opinion of Dr. Ignatius Piazza and the shooting school that he founded and directs, Front Sight, that firearms training is the solution to the irrational fear that Americans have for guns. He is of the opinion that gun training is what is needed to get America to realize that further gun restrictions won't make guns less scary, if anything that will only make them scarier – as fewer people will know how to responsibly use them.

As featured in the Chicago Tribune, and countless other periodicals, Front Sight offers world-class training at its Las Vegas, Nevada training facility. Gun training is what Front Sight does, and Dr. Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight are convinced that firearms training will mean peace of mind for all Americans.
