Quote for the Day

"No free man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government." -- Thomas Jefferson

Range Time

Sorry for the lack of new and exciting posts today, but in a very rare instance of several family members being off (on the same day for once) a trip to the range was in order. Well not really a formal range, but we are lucky enough to own some property where a good bit of shooting can be done. And that will probably be how I spend the 4th as well.

Nothing like doing a little shooting to celebrate the anniversary of America's Independence!

What a Criminal Does When Confronted With Force

"A standoff with a gunman who barricaded himself in a room at a Detroit airport hotel ended peacefully after he turned himself in to police..." [link]

You see the vast majority of the time when confronted with force and other people (not just police) that are armed they will either give up peacefully or shoot themselves. This is especially true of mass shooters. Taking guns from the populace is not the answer.
