Making our guns “inaccessible!”

Dublin, CA, an SF suburb, has just passed a local ordinance requiring all gun owners to make their guns inaccessible and utterly unusable in any timely manner in their own homes. Many other CA cities are following along! Guns must be “inside a locked container or ‘disabled’ with a trigger-lock”

Translated into plain English:

“You can have guns (for now), but they need to be, at all times, inaccessible and unusable”

A curious exception is made when a guns is “under the control of a peace officer.” No one seems to know what “under control” means!

However, it would appear that police officers are exempt from obeying this law, and since city council members have some “arrest authority,” they are all exempt too! So once again, corrupt liberals pass laws that they themselves are not required to obey! This is all orchestrated by Bloomberg’s campaign to perniciously erode state preemption and Supreme Court rulings that establish our Second Amendment Rights as American citizens.

And, we all know how these liberals intend to enforce this new law:

When a violent burglary/home-invasion suspect is successfully repelled by an armed homeowner, the prosecutor will grant immunity from prosecution to the home-invader, in exchange for his testimony that the homeowner was able to become armed “too fast,” and was thus likely in violation of this ordinance. Thus, violent criminals go free. Honest citizens who have the audacity to exercise their Constitutional Rights go to jail. That’s “liberal paradise,” and precisely what is happening right now in Canada.

Everyone knows that guns which are “perfectly safe,” are “perfectly useless,” exactly what liberals want: Helpless, defenseless, dependent citizens who are continuously at the mercy of violent criminals, whom liberals are coddle and protect! At the same time, arrogant, elitist, liberal politicians (is there another kind?) get to keep their guns readily accessible, even “weapons of war,” because, of course, they’re “essential!” Will our courts ever bring us relief from these sleazy hypocrites, this self-declared “special class of citizens,” these Constitutional criminals?

Remember When A Gun Could Be Bought …

Ahh, the good ole days of America when the 2A actually meant something and was held sacred by ALL.

The days before Govt Gangsters trampled the 2A by the Gun Control Act of 1968.

Freedom Is Just Another Word...

An Ode to Department Store Guns

I have my Dad’s 12 gauge shotgun, pump, purchased at Sears a long time ago, was with him the day he purchased it.

Oh the horror!!

Does Carrying A Pistol Make You Safer?

I am reminded of the words of Jeff Cooper:

 

“Owning a handgun doesn’t make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician.”

“The Only thing that can stop a BAD guy with a gun is a GOOD guy with a gun.”

“In the larger sense, however, the personal ownership of firearms is only secondarily a matter of defense against the criminal. Note the following from Thomas Jefferson: The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government. 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.”

It’s puzzling that so many Americans are choosing to arm themselves at a time when the FBI tells usviolent crimeandproperty crimehave been falling dramatically for two decades.

John Burnett, NPR

“It’s puzzling that so many homeowners are choosing to maintain fire extinguishers at a time when the data tells us fire incidents have been falling dramatically” would sound about the same. Also, this has been the trend for three decades, since the early 1990s.

There is no correlation between homocide and gun ownership. Tools don’t do anything by themselves and their presence can not make you more or less safe. BJ Campbell has a tremendous article on this that thoroughly looks at the numbers and analyzes how a series of less-thorough reports got this wrong.

Riflemanship

Make good scouts of yourselves. Become good rifle shots so that, when it becomes necessary that you defend your families and your country, you can actually do it!”- Baden-Powell, founder of Boy Scouts

“The Rifle  is a weapon. Let there be no mistake about that. It is a tool of power and thus dependent completely on the moral stature of it’s user. It is equally useful in securing meat for the table, destroying group enemies on the battlefield and resisting tyranny. In fact it is the only means of resisting tyranny since a citizenry armed with rifles simply cannot be tyrannized.” -Jeff Cooper

“Men trained in arms from their infancy, and animated by the love of liberty, will afford neither a cheap or easy conquest.” – Declaration of the Continental Congress, July 1775.

“The Russian invasion of Finland in 1939 (“The Winter War”) gruesomely demonstrates the way a small force of righteous and determined men, armed only with rifles, can embarrassingly frustrate a much larger, even mechanized, force. Precise rifle fire from well-trained Operators, using guanine battle rifles, is still the deadliest force in warfare, even today!” – John Farnam

 

I have found in my life that when things start going sideways it is always best to refer back to the FUNDAMENTALS to get back on track, since it is often the fundamentals that get forgotten first under severe stress.

We are living in trying and dangerous times. It’s time to get back to the BASICS.

The DUTY of the responsible armed civilian since this country’s inception was to be a RIFLEMAN first above all else.

If you ask me we have become a nation way too obsessed with handguns.

Let’s get back to our partisan roots and put the priority back to becoming RIFLEMAN first and a Handgunner second.

Understanding both are a highly perishable art form, so we need to do three things consistently: PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!

Seek out qualified BTDT instruction from guys like Brushbeater and Paul Howe over at CSAT.

You know how you get to Carnegie Hall , don't you?

Secondly, Support organizations that are ensuring this Rifleman legacy continues on to the next generation.

Encourage parents and youngsters to invest in America’s Rifle Legacy and it’s Survival:

Support and Get Involved with the Appleseed Project and the NRA CMP.

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!
