Rules for a Gunfight

GunfightOver the years I have heard these from gun training instructors and others so I did not write them. But they are good and deserve recognition here. If you own a gun you will probably appreciate these. Of course, if you don’t own a gun, get one, learn how to use it responsibly, perhaps by going to Front Sight, then remember these rules.

In a gunfight, the most important rule is     Continue reading

Is the Constitution Outdated?

I had someone stop by here asking if the Second Amendment, and thereby the Constitution I assume, is outdated. The Constitution after all, was written back in the eighteenth century by a bunch of guys who aren’t around any more, back when they still used muskets and black powder pistols. How could this Constitution they put together apply today? It does not speak to today so how can it still be relevant?Signing the Constitution

Well, I suppose that is correct in one sense that the Constitution does not speak to today.  For that matter it did not speak to the late eighteenth century either.  It speaks to men, man if you will, acknowledging that we are imperfect, and that whenever power is given to one man, say a king, emperor or dictator, it corrupts.  Power will turn the ambition of most men who achieve power to that of personal enrichment, just as we see what is happening in our government today, unfortunately.  That is why so many of the Republican leadership do not want Trump to become President, even if it means electing Hillary.  Trump represents someone who could upset their gravy train and ruin the good thing they have going for themselves.  He could be their spoiler.  But I digress.

The Constitution tries to limit the corruption of power by allowing us to chose the ones who will govern us, from the people – not a ruling class or family (So what about Hillary?, you say – again I digress – sorry).  It further sets out to limit       Continue reading

Guns and RestaurantsSomeone stopped by looking for information on “Open Carry in Arizona”.   I often get people curious about this from other States as well.  So I am posting a list of States that currently allow “Open Carry”.

Gun Law That May Really Save Lives

I came across a new Gun Law that has passed the Mississippi Legislature and has been signed by Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, that may actually save lives. One of the things that I am always complaining about is that of the more than 22,000 gun laws on the books now, none of them has ever saved a life. But alas, we may now have one, and it goes into effect immediately.

Baptist ChurchOf course, this law would not even be necessary if they hadn’t previously passed a Gun Control law that made it illegal in the first place, but this new law now makes it legal for a     Continue reading
