Sort of like the crime rate went down in DC after the Heller case, dont get how the statistics are out there but people are so blind. Citys with the highest crime rate have the strictest gun control , take away the gun control and the crime rate drops .

April 19, 1775 When marksmanship met history , and the heritage began....

I picked this up from coments on a home invasion story in Mn. A 92 year old and his wife sent home invader running. To bad they just beat on the guy and didn't blow him away. This comments from John and tells the whole story

Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Southerner?

Here is a little test that will help you decide.

The answer can be found by posing the following question:

You’re walking down a
deserted street with your wife
and two small children.

Suddenly, a Terrorist with a huge knife
comes around the corner,
locks eyes with you,
screams obscenities,
raises the knife, and charges at you…

You are carrying a
Kimber 1911 cal. 45 ACP, and you are an expert shot.
You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.
What do you do?

Democrat’s Answer:

• Well, that’s not enough information to answer the question!

• What is a Kimber 1911 cal. 45 ACP?

• Does the man look poor or oppressed?

• Is he really a terrorist? Am I guilty of profiling?

• Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

• Could we run away?

• What does my wife think?

• What about the kids?

• Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the
knife out of his hand?

• What does the law say about this situation?

• Does the pistol have appropriate safety built into it?

• Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of
message does this send to society and to my children?

• Is it possible he’d be happy with just killing me?

• Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content
just to wound me?

• If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get
away while he was stabbing me?

• Should I call 9-1-1?

• Why is this street so deserted?

• We need to raise taxes, have paint & weed day.

• Can we make this a happier, healthier street that would
discourage such behavior.

• I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and
try to come to a consensus.

• This is all so confusing!

……….. ……… ……… ……… …….. ……… ………
……… ..

Republican’s Answer:


………… …….. ……… ……… ……… ……… ……… …..

Southerner’s Answer:

Click….. (Sounds of reloading)
Daughter: ‘Nice grouping, Daddy!’
‘Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Hollow Points?! ‘
Son: ‘Can I shoot the next one?!’
Wife: ‘You ain’t taking that to the Taxidermist!

As long as Chicago runs the entire state, I don't expect it to ever happen.

I don't think it will happen here.
Actually they do. New York and California are "may issue" states. For upstate New York and Western and far North California, it is fairly easy to get a CCW permit. New York City and the greater LA area are a bit more difficult, but if you are a celebrity.... no problem.

For thous of you who may have forgotten, Here is a little firearms refresher course!!

1. "Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not." ~Thomas Jefferson
2. Those who trade liberty for security have neither. ~John Adams
3. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.
4. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
5.. Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.
6. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.
7. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.
8. Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.
9. You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.
10. Assault is a behavior, not a device.
11. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.
12. The United States Constitution (c) 1791. All Rights Reserved.
13. The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the other ones
14. What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?
15. Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians.
16. When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.
17. The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.
You can lead a liberal to facts,but you can't make him think!
