Coffee with Rich: Rich Brown is the Co-Host of
America's leading Self-Defense podcast, the American Warrior
On today's Coffee with Rich, we will be joined by
Jonathan Deal. MR. Deal operates full time as the founder and lead
instructor of Zero Points Down Academy (ZPD) in South Africa. ZPD
is a bespoke training operation catering for Police mandated
training of citizens on all small arms as well as advanced levels
of sport shooting, including precision long-range shooting.
He is the IDPA State Coordinator for the Cape
Province in South Africa and a keen Sport Shooter. In 2020 he
founded the SAFE CITIZEN Campaign www.safecitizen.co.za
a civil rights group concerned with the safety of South Africans
who daily face escalating and brutal crime.
Writing on Travel and Tourism, his book, Timeless
Karoo was published in 2007, and as a freelance journalist and
photographer, he also writes for various publications, including
the Rhodes Business School website and the Daily Maverick. He is a
past chairman of the Southern African Freelancers Association and
is sought after as a speaker and debater on environmental issues at
international conferences. Deal presented at Al Gore’s
International Climate Leadership School in Johannesburg in March
2014 and was honored in the same year to be listed by City Press as
1 of 100 World Class South Africans, sharing the accolade with
fellow citizens such as Nelson Mandela, Mark Shuttleworth and
Charlize Theron. His background in journalism and public speaking
has proved invaluable in moving Safe Citizen forward.
As a committed trainer, he holds a fierce passion
for lawful and competent private gun ownership and regards himself
as an influencer in this realm in South Africa. Reading widely on
training and civil rights issues, Deal views SafeCitizenas a
necessary vehicle to move lawful gun owners close to the police as
trusted allies – proving that citizens who can defend themselves
will be a powerful and positive influence on the communities in
which they live.
Deal intends to use every resource available to
unite lawful South Africans who support private firearm ownership,
to overturn the untrue perception that firearms are bad and that
private firearm owners are to blame for the flood of illegal
firearms in the country.
He is determined that his fellow citizens should be
able, via the lawful possession of a firearm to enjoy the
Constitutional guarantee of freedom from public or private
