I read this morning where Students plan on marches across the country to demand gun control…foolish Sheep lead by Educators steeped in left wing ideology, blaming objects for the actions of mentally and morally deranged people. Demanding to “feel safe”, well children this is not a “safe” world and never has been. Put your faith in a all powerful God who gives the ultimate protection, eternal life through the death of His Son on the Cross. I feel for the generations being raised to demand safety, dare nothing, defend nothing and expect the Government to provide your every want not need from Cradle to Grave.
Speaking with my Son yesterday, he tells me my GrandDaughter tells him she’s going to join the Walk out at School against Gun Violence, so he asks why, she says they don’t want Guns and Police on their Campus. Well she’s spent a lot of time in my home surrounded by Guns, she’s spent all of her life around current and former Police officers, being protected by them.
Our educators and brain benders are blaming the acts of the mentally ill and evil among us on inanimate objects, rather than requiring Law Enforcement and State agencies to keep the mental health records up to date to keep these folks from being able to legally purchase firearms, they want to ban firearms. That is like banning automobiles because of Drunk Drivers. The last several serial shooters have legally purchased their weapons because of failures of the systems, the USAF for not reporting one man’s mental problems and the last, the Sheriff’s department that visited his residence 43 times.
Go after the real causes and I and most Gun Owners will cheerfully join you, in the mean time we see one reason 15-17 years aren’t allowed to vote and frankly maybe that should go back to 21 year olds.
on my last visit to Rick’s firearms I looked over several I’d considered but decided not to buy, and predictably I brought home another one, a CZ 97b. A big .45acp that I’d thought too large for my hands Some dry firing convinced me I might well be good with it as the DA pull is one of the best I’ve seen. We’ll find out sometime.
On another subject, I’ve been a fan of the little J Framed .32 SW Longs for a long time, great for a first centerfire trainer for kids and women who are recoil shy. Local pawn had a New Ruger SP101 in .32 Federal Magnum, the 3″ fixed barrel model that had been ordered in error for a customer, Made me a offer I couldn’t refuse , price matched the cheapest price I could find on Gunbroker and threw in 2 50 round boxes of Federal 85gr and a 20 round box of HST’s. This may be Mama’s new pistol, you just never know.
No photo of the Ruger yet.
My Wife’s family Christmas gathering was yesterday, we always have a great time there, wonderful Children are growing up into Godly and talented young Adults, Adults who continue to be good Christian examples to their Children. Much reminiscing about those who have gone on before us, sadness for their loss to us but Joy in that we know they wait for us in God. Not much gift giving (the sisters give small tokens) but a tremendous amount of sharing of Love and Joy for the Season. I always enjoy this gathering. Oh and the food, wow the food.
For many years the Wife has only done a little decorating at Christmas, we spend Christmas eve and day with our Son’s family and she just didn’t see the point of putting up a tree. Since she retired the end of May she’s been doing a lot of “put off” things around the house. Coming home from a errand the other day I find a tree up for the first time in a long time, it looks nice, nothing really fancy but a cute little tree.
Nothing fancy but I like it, Merry Christmas.
Wonderful service at Church last night for our Hanging of the Greens, from Cherub Choir to our Soloist and Praise team some beautifully wonder filled music. The program certainly set the tone for the coming Season of Celebrating the Coming of Jesus to Earth, it also for me sets the tone for a Season of Giving, planning for special gifts for our Manna Market clients above and beyond the basic food stuffs we provide monthly. Years ago I learned that giving is so much more satisfying than receiving, God has more than amply supplied my needs.
Another year of Blessings from the Lord, we have so many things to be thankful for, Family and Friends, food and shelter, health and material blessings. Losses of Friends presence in our lives but Joy knowing they’ve gone on to a better place where we will join them in God’s time.
I wish each of you the Happiness and Blessings of the Thanksgiving season.
I thank you, if you’re like me you served with pride and honor as the vast majority of us did, no matter how unpopular, no matter where you were called you did your job to the best of your ability. God bless you all.
made one of the “old” Gunshop circuits today, solo. Carthage, Ed’s and Midsouth, found nothing that really peaked my interest, closest thing was a “okay” CZ 527 Varmint in .17 Rem. Just odd to make the 1 and half hour drive by myself, I’m either going to have to find a new Gunshop denizen to hang out with or give it up, nah I won’t give it up but it sure isn’t the same as yakking away talking about guns and hunting for a few hours and then the fun of going thru the shops looking for a deal, imagined or real. Miss you Rick, just ain’t the same with out you around.
Hate doing it but I’m spending too much time each day deleting spam messages, the Russians, Chinese, Indian and Pakistanis and Lord only knows who else have Bots that can throw them up by the hundreds in a short period of time.
Feel free to use the Contact feature and I’ll post whatever I receive if “postable”.
