Putting the Social into Socialism

I get really uptight when I hear the news and it sounds like our esteemed nation might turn into the Soviet Socialist Republic of America. What happened to the United States of America? United DOES NOT equal Socialism. If I want to equalize and socialize society, I take my dog for a walk. Everyone wants to pet the dog, find out his name, play with him. The socializing puts smiles on faces and makes tough teenagers giggle like little kids. Walking the dog and spreading this “socialism” costs nothing to anyone, but it definitely generates huge returns. I desire all of us to contemplate what we stand for. Remember: if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything. Do not succumb to complacency. Know your rights, but, along with that, mind your obligations. With every right comes a responsibility component. What does this have to do with firearms? EVERYTHING! If we do not exercise our Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America rights, we could lose them. I have said before, our nation became great as a direct result of the right to bear arms. We could protect ourselves, our families, our communities. We could stand up to bullies, bad guys and oppressive governments. In addition, we could hunt. We could eat meat and live better, longer and stronger lives for the initially brutal labor the farming life taxed the rural pilgrims/ immigrants with. Knowing where we come from sets the stage for where we want to go. Do you exercise you right to bear arms in conjunction with the responsibilities of knowing and following your local, state and federal rules, laws and regulations for owning and carrying said arm? Is your permit to carry valid? Have you let it expire? Please, run a check on your licenses, review your safety rules for safe weapons handling, then, go walk your dogs

About admin

"I worked as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer for over 14 years, in a firearms carrying capacity. First assigned to LAX (1994), then to the Los Angeles/ Long Beach Seaport (1997-2007), I took an early retirement from my final duty station of El Paso, TX (2007-2008). Never having handled firearms prior to this job, I give full credit for my initial shooting lessons and safe firearms handling skills to the government. As I began to compete, I gleaned tips and coaching lessons from the best law enforcement instructors across the nation, turning myself into one of the best, too. I was a firearms instructor in Los Angeles and a national level competitor on a formally sponsored team from 1999 through 2003, being sent all over the nation for pistol match competitions. As a result of this gift of an experience, I went on to set five national records in the law enforcement shooting sports. Check in regularly to read about those and other adventures and misadventures!"
