Memorial Day…

May 27, 2018

It’s Memorial Day. A day for solemn respect for those that gave all for us to be able to live the lives that we do.
Sure, have a BBQ, drink beer, and so on. But don’t do it for yourself. Do it for those that cannot but gave it all so that you can.

Some people ask…

May 26, 2018

Several people have asked me why I keep the blogroll on the side unchanged. The simple answer is that I do it for memorial reasons. Don’y care for that? Then don’t look.

Stale as a story, but still teaching a lesson.

Interesting bit of practical wisdom.

Common sense in an uncommon world.

April 22, 2018

This is from my very good friend, and internet Brother that should have kept on blogging.

Sua Sponte!

I am a gun owner and user, I carry a gun all the time and so far, in my 64 years I have never used a gun to shoot any human being that was not presenting an immediate, life threatening danger to me, my family or others. THAT is the way it’s supposed to be!

We have a culture of sheer stupidity in this nation and that stupidity is called Liberalism.

It has taken over our educational system, its political correctness has put a stain on our lives, its politics are ruining our nation at every turn and there would appear to be NO END IN SIGHT!

Yes, I am well aware; there have been a number of shootings over the last few years, mass shootings, gang shootings, shootings of anger and hatred, shootings during the commission of criminal activities and who knows what other reasons and circumstances.

Every time a shooting occurs the anti-gun Left rises and cries for the removal of ALL guns save those in the hands of the Police and Military, a very stupid plan at best, a disaster waiting to happen at worst.

The Left claims that we don’t need guns and that all law abiding American citizens need to give up their guns, turn them in, allow them to be destroyed or whatever their cause of the day is calling for, and when one mentally ill person takes up the gun and commits a mass murder the Left wants all of us, YOU, ME, everyone, to suffer the consequences for the actions of ONE mentally deranged cretin.

Turn in our guns because of the actions of one guy? What about demanding that the criminals in every city and town in America turn in THEIR guns? Why is it we never hear the anti-gun Left call for that?

Do these people honestly believe that taking guns from law abiding citizens is going to stop the criminals from committing their various crimes as they ply their trades on what would be an unarmed and defenseless citizenry?

Does the anti-gun Left think taking guns from people like YOU and ME is going to be a much easier task than trying to disarm the hardened criminals among us? Do they think we’re going to stand still and allow our guns and Constitutional freedoms to be taken?

If they do then they are sadly mistaken.

I am, in addition to being a solid supporter of gun rights also a solid supporter of Law Enforcement and the military and I am well connected to a great many in BOTH fields.

What the anti-gun Left doesn’t grasp is this; by far there are more Conservative Police and Military members than there are those of a Liberal persuasion.

Where do you think those Conservative Law Officers and Troops will stand and who do you think they will be standing with?

Does there need to be a solution to these mass shootings and the idea of CRAZY people being allowed to possess guns? Sure there does but for the life of me I have no idea what it is, all I know is this; gun confiscation is NOT the answer and will lead to a not so civil war in America that will make happenings in places like Syria seem like playground games.

You want MY guns? COME AND TAKE THEM!

When it’s over you’ll find my body in a pile of warm shell casings, and my guns may be gone, but that is the only way I will EVER give up MY guns!

We need to make them as well as their ideologies toxic…

March 14, 2018

It is almost like a “Here we go again” situation. We are constantly assaulted with the notion that we absolutely have to surrender our unalienable rights is search of some magical pixie dust, or unicorn farts called safety. All human beings are entitled to the right to defend themselves, and theirs. in that context I include defending one’s family, neighbors, City or town, state, as well as nation from any threats to life, or liberty from enemies both within or foreign. Anything, including any ideology that seeks to diminish my, or our ability to do so is anathema, pure poison. All the feel good posturing in the world does not change that. Nor does any arrogant better than thou Tory type or style of social justice virtue signaling negate that which must be done when, and if needed.

What follows is one of the finest  pieces that I have ever read on this very subject. Enjoy! Or vomit as the case may be.

How times have changed.

An Op/Ed from Fred Witzell

Let me preface this by saying; I am 64 years old…

Regarding the shooting in Florida on Feb 14th I have to say, I am shocked and saddened, not just because of the deaths and injuries but also because of the reactions, the incredibly STUPID reactions and comments I have seen all over the ‘net..

When I was in high school in Louisiana back in the late 60’s and early 70’s we, and this nation to the best of my memory, had no *mass shootings* in schools… And I remember that during hunting season most of us guys had a shotgun and/or rifle hanging in the gun rack in the back window of our pickup trucks because as soon as the bell rang we were headed to the woods, not to shoot at each other or the property of others, but to hunt wild game for the freezer and dinner table…

It was what we did…

I know most, if not all of the folks I went to school with have similar memories, many of them are here on Facebook and on the USGOA page as well, and again, I never knew of anyone committing heinous acts of murder… I hope my high school buddies make comments on this post too..

Times have indeed changed since my teenage years, and speaking just for me and mine, my kids didn’t grow up to be murderers, they did grow up to be decent citizens that are raising their children the right way though…

Gun control, gun confiscation and ammo restrictions are a joke, an unworkable fallacy concocted in the minds of Liberals that want to control YOU, not your guns… Again, guns are being used as a TOOL, by the Left…

Liberals that have taken the medium of film and television, and now video games and social media, and bastardized them all, making it appear to be totally acceptable to do what you want, when you want and however you want, and I blame many parents for not having the guts to take charge of their families and raising their children correctly…

I blame those that push for the legalization of drugs for being greatly responsible for actions such as those seen recently…

I blame those that call for the confiscation and destruction of all guns, but most of all, I blame the shooter. His parents may have been failures, his Antifa cohorts may have influenced him greatly, but ultimately, he, the shooter, was solely responsible for HIS actions…

This was NOT a *gun issue*, the gun didn’t commit the crime, some angry, brain-dead Antifa moron used a gun as a tool of violence and death, ONE GUY, and the Liberal Left blames every gun owner in America for this act…

We have serious social issues in America my friends, but the blame MUST be placed where it belongs, THE GUN DIDN’T DO IT, Pres. Trump didn’t do it, the NRA and millions of legal, law abiding gun owners didn’t do it…

The Left, if they had the ability to actually think, needs to consider that…
