On his “best advice to friends” former U.S. attorney Joseph diGenova told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, “I vote, and I buy guns. And that’s what you should do.”
I’ve been telling readers for years to Get Your Gun and Your Training Now. Laws change, times change, but one thing will remain the same, the person in the best position to defend you and your family, is you. You can’t do that without the proper tools and training.
I’ve supplemented my regular range training with classes at Sig Sauer Academy, a top of the line shooting facility with world class instructors. You should get the best training you can as well. Read more about Sig Sauer Academy here:

Gun laws are fairly free today, but that doesn’t mean they won’t change. The House of Representatives under Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already passed two gun control bills. And they are planning for more. Roll Call reports:
House Democrats took a victory lap this week as their new majority passed two priority gun control measures that the previous Republican majority had blocked for years, but they appear to be in no rush to pass more.
“Yes, not immediately, but this session,” Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler told Roll Call on Thursday when asked if his panel would be marking up more legislation designed to prevent gun violence. Not immediately, the New York Democrat said, is likely “after June sometime.”
Nadler’s remarks came after the House on Thursday passed, 228-198, legislation that would extend from three days to 10 days the time for the government to complete a background check on someone who’s trying to buy a gun from a licensed dealer before the sale can go through.House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn has been introducing the measure to address what’s known as “the Charleston loophole” since the 2015 mass shooting there at a South Carolina church that left nine dead. The gunman, Dylann Roof, was able to purchase a firearm even though his background check had not been approved because the FBI needed more time beyond the legal three-day window.
A day earlier, the House passed a bill that would expand the background check process to include purchases made at gun shows, online or in other private settings, not just at licensed dealers. That vote was 240-190.
California Rep. Mike Thompson, the sponsor of that earlier measure, said the gun violence prevention task force that he chairs will continue to look at other legislative solutions, but he had no immediate timing in mind for advancing more bills.
“A lot of people have a lot of ideas. We’re looking at them all. If good ones are there, we’ll do everything we can to get them to the forefront,” he said.
Don’t wait, get your guns and your training now, before it’s too late.
