Top Six Reasons Why You Should Own a Gun

Should you buy a gun? There are plenty of anti-gun people who will tell you that owning a gun is wrong. But is it? For starters owning a firearm is a constitutional right guaranteed by the second amendment act of our constitution. The first president of our great nation, George Washington, stated that the only thing more important than firearms was the constitution itself. With that being said, what are the main reasons why you should own a gun? Offers a sense of freedom According to a survey conducted by Pew Research Center, 74% of Americans who own guns opine that gun ownership Read More >>

The Times They Are a Changin’

To quote Dylan, things are a changing’ and some don’t think it is for the better.  You are here, so you have some interest in the Shooting Sports, and presumably in the preservation of the 2nd Amendment.  It started in California and New York, fairly quietly.  Then, BOOM, Virginia with massive proposed anti-firearm legislation and threats of enforcement by the National Guard.  The most egregious bills seemed to have died in committee, but the legislature isn’t done.  Bans and serious restrictions for ranges, Red Flag laws without due process, Universal Background checks, Read More >>

2nd Amendment Sanctuary Movement

In a sweeping pushback against liberal overreach Counties and Cities across the country are declaring themselves 2nd Amendment Sanctuaries.  Mostly on the Pacific coast and in Virginia, the movement is growing as state governments seek to impose sweeping gun reform.   In Virginia, which will have a democrat majority for the first time in over 20 years with the incoming representatives in Jan, sweeping bills have been pre-staged for early action.  These include some very dramatic controls, such as redefining Assault Rifle, making AR 15s, AKs, and many sport rifles with detachable Read More >>

Reason # 1 to Own a Firearm

The United States Constitution states, “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”   The U.S. Constitution, I believe we can all agree, is a document designed to protect the people, us.  But the question becomes, protection from what?  Is it protection from each other?  Other countries?  Is it simply a right?  What did the authors of the US Constitution mean by “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and Read More >>

Politics and Millennials

There is a scary report out that Millennials on the campus of George Washington University are overwhelmingly in favor of socialism, thinking it inclusive and all for one.  They don’t know about the atrocities attributed to socialism by other governments.  GWU is an expensive, prestigious school.  How can this be.  These young people will vote us into Socialism and then blame everyone else when it fails.  But getting in is much easier than getting out.  Virginia county and state elections just saw a blue tidal wave.  Hardworking Virginians are nervous about the next Read More >>

Defending the 2nd

We have seen our 2nd Amendment rights fall under attack in recent years.  The rationales vary from No One NEEDS an Assault Rifle, which is an often used but rarely defined term. We Don’t Need Military Style Arms on Our Streets, in truth most modern firearms were at some point derived from military use but the current military arms are not what we see at the range.  We Need to Prevent Mass Shootings Like In Schools, according to Crime Prevention Research Center, 90% of all mass shootings between Jan 1998 and Dev 2015 occurred in “gun free zones”.  These are the places where a Read More >>

Concealed Carry in a Coat

Lynne Finch

As winter approaches for most of us, the talk of how to conceal and access your firearm in a coat is coming up more and more.  There are a lot of options, some better than others.  There are conceal carry winter coats that have a holster built in to the system.  A simple web search will turn up lots of options.  If you prefer on body, a shorter Bomber or Letter style jacket can offer concealment and access.  Coats made for first responders often have snaps or zippers on the sides so you can open up the coat for access to hip carries firearms. Some will add a pocket holster and carry Read More >>

Open versus Concealed Carry

Lynne Finch

There has been a lot of media attention to Walmart and Kroger asking people not to open carry in their stores.  I don't think for a minute they are foolish to think this makes them safer (I did see a video of a man successfully conceal and draw an AR-15 from his pants, it was impressive) but it does ease the nerves of the non-shooting public.  Many on the open carry side argue that it is their right, assuming your state allows it, mine does.  Yes, it is also the right of any establishment to impose a restriction.  If Walmart announced you must wear a smiley face at all times in this store, Read More >>

Reason # 2 – Overcoming Tyranny

According to the definition, tyranny is “cruel and oppressive government or rule. I’ve already touched on this once but thought it was better to go over it again as it’s important to me.  I do not advocate violence and believe that our forefathers put in place mechanisms that will overcome tyranny.  Such as elections.  But history has shown us that if we don’t take care of ourselves - who will?  Some might say that; in today’s society the police and government are there to help and protect. I beg to differ and we see it every day.  In an article in the New York Times by Read More >>
