You may get to shoot even less with new recent legislation in your state.

I am in AZ and just yesterday they proposed (extreme dems) legislation to prohibit scary “assault” rifles here too.
Won't happen in AZ for a while.

Why Carry a Gun?



My old Grandpa said to me, "Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take a whipping.

I don't carry a gun to kill people;

I carry a gun to keep from being killed.

I don't carry a gun because I'm evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.

I don't carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don't carry a gun because I'm angry; I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone;

I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere.

I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man;

I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.

I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate;

I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don't carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.



Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.



Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take a whoopin'!





A LITTLE GUN HISTORY...

PLEASE DON'T THINK FOR A MOMENT, THAT THIS COULDN'T HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO !!!



In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control: From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated

-----------------------

In 1911, Turkey established gun control: From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated

-----------------------

Germany established gun control in 1938: From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

-----------------------

China established gun control in 1935: From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

-----------------------

Guatemala established gun control in 1964: From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

-----------------------

Uganda established gun control in 1970: From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

-----------------------

Cambodia established gun control in 1956: From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

-----------------------

56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control.

-----------------------

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,

gun control laws adversely affect only the law abiding citizens.



With guns, we are 'citizens'; without them, we are 'subjects'.



During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!



Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!



If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.



The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.



SWITZERLAND-ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD!

SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.



SWITZERLAND-HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!



It's a no-brainer! Don't let our government waste millions of our TAX DOLLARS in an effort to make all law abiding citizens an easy target.

You do realize that if the guys in DC decided to turn this country into an all out tyranny, there's nothing we could do with our semi-autos?

Do you really think any administration is going to confiscate weapons? Even Dems in Virginia backed off the latest gun control measures. I'm curious, where were you on 9-11?

They don't need to confiscate anything. Our semi-autos are nice boys' toys, fun at the range or in the woods when hunting deer, can be used for self-defense from criminals. But against the government machine that employs the military, those toys are useless. I smile every time I hear that we have the 2nd amendment so that we can prevent government tyranny.

I was about half a kilometer away from ground zero, saw the second plane hit, felt the south tower come down, and got to see my fair share of crap on that day. Why do you ask?

Just curious, because it seemed to me you were more than just a gun owner. That was a bad area to be in, with all of the contaminants in the debris. We were only a civilian tenant on a Navy base, but it was a HQ. The guy who coordinated emergency operations just retired, and though not my current job, I did it in my previous one. I volunteered to work in our bunker to coordinate emergency supplies, which was unhardened on a main road.

Yet a bunch of goat herders in a 3rd world country wearing pajamas and flip flops have essentially fought the military to a stalemate.

The building i was in was used as a rescue command center, had to be decontaminated afterwards from all the asbestos in the ventilation system. The city reeked of burnt steel and concrete for months afterwards.

Are you talking about Afghanistan? Those guys had been fighting their entire lives, whether it was the Brits, the Soviets, or us. Our civilians are not their civilians.

Refer to my comment above. What Afghanis have been doing is not something our civilians will be able to do, despite the vast territories and larger numbers.
I saw your comments and think your wrong. You’re talking military administered war against 50% of the population.

It would never succeed.

Re: A'stan, Viet Nam, etc. The one thing the opposition had going for them was an outside power funneling training, weapons, ammo and money in (USSR, Russia, Iran, Pakistan, etc.). If the American people revolted against the Federal Government, NO ONE would be providing aid to the rebels, except maybe Russia and China just to watch America burn.

One thing we are forgetting is the Private Military sector. Also, people do have the proper documentation to own more than "little simi auto" weaponry. I'm not saying it would be a fair fight, but it wouldnt be a landslide ether. We do have a right to a well formed militia to defend against threats both foreign and domestic. People just seem to forget that part......

Only if that population is ready to fight. I have big doubts. The French military was stronger than the German one in 1940. French soldiers fought well, but their leadership decided to throw their Hande hoch. The US is not cohesive, and we do not have real experience of a war on our soil.

That is true. However, I do not see the American people ever revolting.

Just got my second stamp back yesterday for the SBR portion of my new toy. Took 28 days on an e-file form 1. Slowly accruing the rest of the parts needed. Just need upper, barrel, suppressor mounting things, and a lower parts kit. Hopefully have it done in the next month or so, then stocking up on ammo and mags before the election.
