Don’t let the lame stream media; who couldn’t report a story fairly if they tried, and yes I mean MSNBC in particular; make you think that you have no options when it comes to the right to keep and bear arms.  Apparently that network; as well as many liberals in general, have no idea what real freedom is and what the 2nd amendment stands for.  These liberal politicians go so far as to take an oath to support and uphold the Constitution; then do everything they can to do the exact opposite.

If a criminal breaks into your home with the intent of harming you or your family; you must have the means to defend yourself and that is where firearms and proper training come in.  Criminals are not breaking into your home hoping you’ll ask them to sit down and share a cup of coffee; they are there to rob, rape or kill you and you’d better be able to defend yourself and your loved ones.  After all; my life and my family’s lives are more important than some scumbag criminals.

 Today I say piss off an anti gun liberal by doing the following.

  • Get your pistol permit
  • Legally purchase your handguns, shotguns, rifles, ammo and support gear; that will be the most beneficial for the self defense of yourself and your family.
  • Train at your local gun club or rifle range on a regular basis.
  • Support the 2nd amendment and support others who support the 2nd amendment.
  • Call those uninformed, misguided, freedom hating  liberals out; when they try to impose ridiculous gun control legislation.

Another first rate book has been released by Archer Garrett entitled The Blighted.  The story is as follows.

A horrific virus has spread across the globe, transforming the infected into ravenous, flesh-eating creatures. Humanity hangs by a thread as those who remain struggle to survive in the new world.

the Blighted follows several story lines, including:

A research team in Suva, Fiji, forced to flee the island after their research facility is overrun. With them, they may hold the key to saving what is left of civilization.

A husband and wife in coastal Mississippi is forced to flee their enclave and search for a missing loved one. Along the way, they discover there are things much more evil in the world, than the hordes of undead.

This is a good read and can be purchased at Amazon; so if you liked Archer’s other books you can add this one to your collection.

The following are my italicized responses to some common AR-15 Questions.

Q – Is the .223 Remington round and the .556 NATO round the same?

A – No.  While they might appear similar, the .223 Remington is loaded to lower pressures and velocities than the .556 NATO round.

Q – Can I shoot the .223 round out of a barrel stamped .556?

A – Yes.

Q – Can I shoot the .556 round out of a barrel stamped .223?

A – No.

Q – What’s the main difference between the A1, A2 and A3 receiver?

A – The A1 receiver has a carry handle with the rear sight built into the handle.  It requires a tool for adjusting and is adjustable for windage only.  The A2 receiver has a carry handle with the rear sight built into the handle.  It is finger adjustable in increments for windage and elevation.  The A3 receiver is a flat top receiver with no carry handle.  It has a Picatinny rail mounted on the top for attaching optics.

Q – What is twist rate?

A – Twist rate is how long it takes the bullet to make 1 full rotation in the barrel.  As an example a 1/9 is 1 full rotation for every 9 inches of barrel.

Q – What is the military version of the AR-15 rifle?

A – The M16 rifle.

Q – What are some of the advantages of an AR-15 rifle?

A – They are flexible, accurate, reliable, have a proven performance record and have parts that are readily available  

Q – What is the ideal barrel length for an AR-15 rifle?

A – 16 inches. 

Q – Why are iron sights important?

A – Iron sights are often the primary sighting system and offer the quickest method to acquire a target at short distances.

Q – What size magazine is best and how many magazines should one have?

A – The 30 round magazine is best and one should generally have a minimum of 10 magazines.

Q – What’s better, plastic or railed handguards?

A – They are both good.  Plastic handguards are there to cover the barrel to prevent you from burning your hands.  If you’re a minimilist and do not want to add accessories plastic is the way to go.  Railed handguards also prevent you from burning your hands but have the added benefit of rails to allow the quick attachment of modular accessories such as flashlights and foregrips.  If you like adding accessories, then railed is the way to go.

Q – What are some good brands of AR-15 rifles?

A – Bushmaster, Rock River Arms and DPMS.

I am a proud Conservative and here are some Conservative principles that folks might want to consider.

  • The money that the government uses does not belong to the government; it belongs to the taxpayers.
  • Government that governs best is the one that governs least.
  • Big government is the problem.  People solve problems; governments don’t.
  • Large, out of control governments throughout history are responsible for more murders of citizen’s than all of the battlefield wars combined historically.
  • Wealth is created by the private sector; when governments get out of the way so people can strive for success unencumbered.
  • Government social programs encourage dependency, create a nanny state and crush self reliance and independence.
  • Governments role according to the Constitution is to provide for National Defense.
  • Human rights are inherent and automatic and come from God, not from the government.
  • The right to self defense is guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment and protects all the other rights afforded by the Constitution.
  • The United States is a Constitutional Republic; not a pure democracy and it is important to know the difference.

I am a law abiding, pistol permit holder and like millions of others we have never shot anyone and we use our guns for recreational purposes and for personal and home defense.  Gun control does nothing to reduce crime; it simply disarms law abiding citizens who purchase their guns legally, but does nothing to disarm criminals who purchase their guns illegally on the black market.

The second amendment guarantees the citizens of the United States the right to keep and bear arms.  Ever notice that no one ever shoots up a pistol range or a gun club; why?  Because being armed in a location where everybody is lawfully armed keeps criminals away.  Only in gun free zones do criminals feel empowered to lash out; as they know they can expect no armed resistance from their victims.  An armed society is a polite society and is also a society that can effectively defend their own lives,  their families lives and their fellow citizens lives.

Gun control for law abiding citizens is pure nonsense; as only law abiding citizens would be affected.  Criminals don’t obey laws which is why they are criminals.  Don’t worry all you gun control advocates; if you are ever in danger from a thug or criminal who is intent on harming you or your family I will make sure not to assist with my firearm.  After all you really don’t want law abiding citizens who could have helped you to be armed and to save your life or families lives anyway now do you?

The following are some tips to keep you safe when traveling or living in the city.

  • Maintain situational awareness at all times.  Know who is around you and what they are doing.
  • Trust your gut instincts.  If something feels wrong; most likely it is wrong.
  • Never open the door to strangers.
  • Keep doors, windows and garages securely locked.
  • Big barking dogs are good deterrents against thieves and muggers.
  • Keep your wallet in your front pocket or inside your jacket.
  • Never walk by yourself at night and stay away from bad neighborhoods and high crime areas.
  • Have a fully charged cell phone with you at all times.
  • Know the locations of your nearest hospitals, police stations, fire departments and major hotels.
  • If you are being chased yelling fire will often get you a quicker response then yelling help.
  • Avoid talking to strangers on the street and avoid being herded towards alleys or blind spots.
  • Use the reflections in store windows to unobtrusively  observe if you are being followed.
  • Obtain your permit to carry a firearm and practice at the range on a regular basis.
  • Stay away from alleyways or cars when rounding a street corner.
  • Project a strong, confident, hard target image.
  • Muggers, thieves and rapists often display tell tale signs before they attack; if you see abnormal behaviors or body language from someone approaching you, get to a safe area immediately.

One of my readers, Allison Morris has written a very interesting article on Historical Apocalyptic Events which is worth checking out.  The link to her article is below.  Enjoy 🙂

Everyone needs to draw a line in the sand for what they will and will not tolerate.  Here is my list of things I will not tolerate.

  • Anyone who tells me my political beliefs are wrong.  I am proud to be a Conservative Republican and truly believe that Conservative ideals are the way to go.
  • Anyone who tries to take away my second amendment rights to keep and bear arms.  I am a proud gun owner who trains and practices on a regular basis and who takes pride in my target shooting skills.
  • Anyone who does not prepare for disasters; and then expects others to drop everything to help them when they could have helped themselves.
  • Anyone with a welfare/entitlement mentality.  While I understand everyone goes through hard times at certain points in their lives; it is up to each individual to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and go on to achieve something worthwhile.
  • Anyone who is a racist.  There is no room for racism and no excuse for anyone who engages in racist tirades or racist hatred.  Hating others because of their race, creed, religion or origin is simply wrong thinking.
  • Anyone without morals or values.  It is not hard to do the right thing so make sure when the situation presents itself; that you choose to do the right thing.
  • Anyone engaging in violent crime.  You are the scum of the earth and you can expect to receive a just punishment.  Karma has a way of balancing the scales.

Why is shooting center mass and or head shots so important?  In essence because it is combat effective. It stops assailants who are trying to harm you and your family, during a home invasion, when the threat of death to you and yours is immediate and apparent.  Head shots are an expedient way to end an attack as hitting the brain turns off the attackers ability to control his central nervous system.  Head shots are generally more difficult then center mass shots as the head is a smaller target and tends to move around more than the torso area.

Center mass is essentially shots to the torso with the preferred location being high on the chest.  These are easier shots to make than head shots as even if your aim is slightly off, you still have a good chance of hitting a vital organ and bringing the attack to an end.  If your life or your families lives are in imminent danger, the primary focus is to stop the attack with a justifiable use of lethal force.  After all your life is more important than some scumbags who is out there to rape or murder you with no regard for your life or the lives or your loved ones.
