THE FOUR RULES

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

Winston Churchill said
"A GENTLEMAN, SELDOM, IF EVER, NEEDS A GUN.
BUT WHEN HE DOES, HE NEEDS IT VERY BADLY!"
Si Vis Paceum Para Bellum

Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”
Samuel Adams

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

A couple of things


Let's start with the lighter stuff. We call this;
Guns in the shitter, secret service edition
Read this

It seems that a secret service agent left his handgun in the restroom on Mitt's charterd jet.

Now I've carried a gun at different times for 37 years. I have never once "accidentally" left my gun in a public restroom. How do you go somewhere where you spend just a few minutes and "forget" your gun? My current carry gun, loaded, weighs close to 3 pounds. If it's not in it's holster, I notice.

For those not familiar with David Codrea, he's a gun rights activist and writer. He has a category called "the Only Ones". He started this after that famous DEA agent Lee Page shot himself in the foot after declaring to school kids he was the "only one" professional enough to carry his Glock 40. So David finds these articles about cops doing stupid stuff. Here's a sample of bathroom humor that he found.

Now, like David, I do respect the men and women That serve and protect. They do a fine job and sometimes a thankless one. But like the rest of us, they are human. So sometimes it's fun to poke a little fun. The "only ones" title comes from the gun haters that believe that the police and military are the only ones that should be allowed to have arms.

Government is not your friend.

No Firearm Owner is Safe

Suppose you sold a car and it was later used in a hit-and-run fatality. Would you be culpable? Suppose the person who used it didn’t have a driver’s license. Would that make you responsible? What if the person who bought your car actually committed the hit and run with another car, but had your old car parked in their backyard – and on top of that, they actually bought the car, not from you, but from a police officer you had sold it to several months earlier? Is there any way anyone could blame you for contributing to the hit and run?

Go read the whole thing. John Shipley was a respected FBI agent and yet the government railroaded him. Just think what they can do to one of us "commoners". You can also google Jesus Diaz for more on the government screwing their own employees.

I have never, like you, left my carry piece behind. If it were to ever happen I'd be too ashamed to ever admit it and think I'd just take it off and quit. But, it'll never happen. It has roots sunk deep into the small of my back.
