Your Second Amendment rights are on the line on November 8th. In a recent conversation with a gun store owner, he told me he cannot keep self-defense guns on the shelves. What he means is the concealed carry pistols are out of stock. What I have learned is how important it is to get your training before making any purchase. I’ve taken hours of coursework at my favored Sig Sauer Academy. A friend of mine just finished 10-hours of training with Surefire in Wyoming. Go to NRA.com to find training near you. You will not regret it. Dick Young wrote the piece below back in February of 2013. If you read it, and haven’t gotten training yet, don’t let inertia stop you, get your training now!
Are you aware of New York State’s new gun laws? Big city New Yorkers voted in Governor Cuomo and deserve what they got. Away from NYC and surrounds, many local law enforcement officers have no intention of implementing a shred of Cuomo’s insanity.
New Yorkers now have both the opportunity of being taxed to death and shot to death. Shot to death, isn’t that strong wording? Not when you read Governor Cuomo’s new gun laws. Look at the roster of banned/illegal munitions and tell me how you read the tea leaves. I would immediately acquire for every adult member of your family a Mossberg 500 series, five shot pump shotgun. And I would collect a series of the Henry .22 LR caliber rim fire survival rifles I have been writing about. While at your gun shop (do not buy ammo online) load up on a trunk full of CCI Stinger 22LR copper-plated hollow point, 1640 fps, 32-grain varmint ammo. Buy the 50 cartridge plastic containers. Pump shotguns and Henry Survival rifles are perfect for fending off varmint, and we all hate varmint, do we not?
Before needing the services of your anti-varmint tools, get some instruction. Our daughter Becky, Mossberg in hand, recently spent the day with Daria Bruno at DB Live Fire. You simply cannot have enough instruction and training. Join a local shooting range, pack your Henrys, and take the kids. I have had a Winchester .22 since I was 16 years old. A fifth grader with the correct instruction can professionally handle the Henry. Debbie and I are Florida concealed weapon, firearm license holders. Years ago, we took the excellent and educational NRA handgun safety course. We are lifetime members of the NRA and supporters of our excellent local sheriff’s department.
You do not require a firearm until you do. Have you and your family seen “Revolution?” Check out the original trailer or the pilot for the new series. Although Hollywood, as usual, has taken many liberties, the general drift of the opening is pretty much in line with what you might expect from an EMP attack.
President Obama and VP Biden are currently supporting a gun ban folly centered on the AR-15 assault weapon (not rifle). They do not have a lot of sane support. Looking at an AR-15 in terms of an assault is just plain nuts. It is not especially powerful and is not an automatic. Yes, in the hands of the deranged, the AR-15, like any other weapon, is dangerous. But with millions of AR-15s floating around, no lunatic will have any problem getting his hands on one. Training, education, and a proper store of Second Amendment supporting firearms makes sense for any family wishing be prepared to fend off a home invasion or the local varmint.
