245 Years Later, Long Guns are Still The Life Blood of the Armed Patriot Citizen

It occurred to me this morning (July 3rd) while preparing my coffee and sitting down to work on a few writing projects that America at present is at a crossroads much like our Founding Fathers were some 245 odd years ago.

Like those brave men in the Continental Congress, we now at present face a similar tyrannical system of Government that is clearly not interested in individual liberties anymore. At every turn it seems this Government seeks to deny us, the American Citizen the rights afforded to us in the Constitution and Bill of Rights to “Keep and Bear Arms.” If you have been paying attention this past year it seems obvious that semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15 are the focus of their despotic disarmament scheme more than any other type of weapon. But why is this?

“That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.” -Colonel Jeff Cooper

History clearly shows that a populace armed with rifles stands a much better chance than one armed with handguns and an ill temper. This is why there is such a push at the highest levels of government to go after rifles, because an armed civilian populace SCARES them!

Gun control as many of you know comes in many forms and guises, but the most despicable form is the “Practical, Common Sense” approach. This type of control is most often now seen in Firearms Training articles predominantly authored by current or ex-Law Enforcement Officers.

Case in point: this article which seeks to use the John Hurley shooting a week ago as a reason for civilians to NOT carry rifles in their vehicles for self-defense because a nervous cop may shoot them thinking they are the bad guy!

Now the irony of this story is that Hurley killed the murdering perp with his legal concealed carry pistol. Hurley was then shot by a responding officer because he (Hurley) had picked up the perp’s AR-15 most likely thinking there were still active multiple shooters and was then mistaken for the shooter by the police and subsequently shot and killed.

Clearly there is a LOT to learn from this tragedy, namely what the armed civilian needs to do AFTER the perp is down and police are responding, but telling civilians to NOT carry a long gun in their car because they may be shot by Law Enforcement is NOT a good piece of advice!

The rifle will always be the LIFE BLOOD of the patriot citizen! It is the instrument by which we protect both ourselves and our freedoms from a tyrannical government.

Organizations like the NRA CMP and Project Appleseed were designed to ENSURE future generations never forget the importance of riflemanship for the every day citizen!

So this July 4th Independece Day take some time to reflect on the FOUNDATIONAL TRUTH that Rifle Ownership and Riflemanship are not only SACRED RIGHTS afforded to us by the Constitution and BIll of Rights but also a SACRED DUTY of the Armed Civilian!

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

Gov. Abbott Signs HB1927: Makes Texas 21st Constitutional Carry State

 

So we BANNED abortions and can now Carry a Gun without “permission”, now all we have to do is Secede from this jackass Union and Build that Border Wall and things will start looking normal around here again!

 

 

Go Armed!

“Spiritual Suicide”

When the “mainstream media” refer to “mass shootings,” we never get to know what kind of gun(s) was used. They know, but they won’t tell us, unless of course it’s an M4, Kalashnikov, et al, one of the ones they want confined to their political bedfellows, but banned from ownership by us “ordinary citizens.”

In any event, here is a paragraph or two you’ll never hear, nor read:

“Not one of the murdered/injured, bystanders, nor witnesses at this massacre were armed and thereby able to effectively stop this attack. Both company policy and state law prohibits the carrying of concealed weapons by these aforementioned persons. The sad, but predictable, result of these manufactured ‘gun-free zones’ is, as always, pitiable carnage.

How did that ‘run, hide, fight (without weapons)’ advice work this time?

About as well as it always does?

And of course, where were our vaunted ‘security personnel?’ Hiding, like everyone else?”

Why are these words never, ever spoken at “mass shooting” scenes?

Meanwhile, boot-licking “woke” CEOs, who are just dying to climb in bed with every Democrat politician they can suck-up to, decry our Second Amendment as they dutifully mouth assorted other classic Communist propaganda.

Americans may are buying-up the entire retail supply of firearms and ammunition, and then some, but most are leaving those firearms at home, deeply fearful of violating a leftist “malum prohibitum,” issued by hand-wringing, woke CEOs (timidly peering-out from between their cadre of heavily-armed bodyguards), and also mandated by a sleazy, hypocritical Democrat-heavy state legislatures, and city councils.

Neither want American citizens doing anything to take care of themselves!

They want only victims, lots of victims. They want all Americans to think of themselves only as pathetic victims.

Indeed, they want you to consider perpetual victimhood to be your sacred civic duty!

They love victims, but only as long as they stay victims!

When you don’t want to be a victim, indeed refuse to be a victim, they hate your guts!

Listen to them!

Texas Senate Passes Bill to Get Rid of License to Carry Fee

 

This is awesome but it’s a small victory in light of what we could have.

I urge all Texans to email, phone or smoke signal their Texas House Representative and State Senator and tell them to get HB 1927 PASSED!

Constitutional Carry for Texas is LONG Overdue!
