If a criminal breaks into your home you have the responsibility to ensure the safety of yourself and your family.  If you are holding the criminal at gunpoint the following are some recommended steps to follow.

  • Call 911.
  • Inform the 911 operator that you are holding an intruder (criminal) who has broken into your home at gunpoint and that you are the homeowner.
  • Inform the 911 operator that you are in fear for your life and if the criminal takes any aggressive action you will shoot the criminal in self defense to protect yourself and your family.
  • Order the criminal to keep his hands in the air, get down on his knees, then get face down on the floor with his head turned the opposite way from you and to spread his arms out from his sides away from his body.
  • Inform the 911 operator that you are the homeowner and describe what you are wearing.
  • Inform the 911 operator that the criminal is lying face down on the floor and describe what he is wearing.
  • Make sure there is a clear distinction between what you the homeowner are wearing and your position, standing up in the home as opossed to what the criminal is wearing and his position on the floor in the home.
  • Keep the 911 operator on the line until the police arrive.
  • Have a family member if possible meet the police outside, reiterate the situation and escort them in.
  • Lower your weapon when the police arrive and follow their instructions.  Make sure they are fully aware that you are the homeowner and not the criminal.
  • Inform the police that you want the criminal prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and that you are prepared to press charges.

Lots of books sold and I’ve heard no complaints about story line so I will take that to mean people find the books interesting.

I’ve enjoyed blogging and commenting back and forth with all of you and I look forward to continuing this tradition next year.  I wish all of you a Happy New Year 🙂

Perhaps no armed robbers, or thugs or murders have shown up at your door and you are starting to question whether all this self defense and home defense preparation is really worth the time and effort?  The answer most definitely is yes it is worth your time and effort.  Why?  If you are like 99.99999% of the population you are not psychic and you do not have a functioning crystal ball that will tell you the time and place that danger will strike………….so being situationally aware, well trained and well prepared to protect your life and your property is essential.  

Keeping your home, your property, yourself and your family safe are of paramount importance.  Take the time and effort now as the peace of mind you will have later will make the endeavor well worth it.  When danger is imminent you are your own first line of self defense.

The following sums things up very nicely.  Also with Christmas just around the corner feel free to click on the book cover images to the left of this blog post to look at; and if you’d like, to purchase copies of my fiction books.  They make for very interesting reading if you enjoy a good, post apocalyptic fiction book series.


Everyone should have a copy of this.


I am a proud conservative, a loving family man and a weapons owner.  It is my right as a law abiding citizen to legally purchase and own firearms and as I have a permit to carry concealed for self protection and family protection; it is my right to do that as well.  I am the voice of most Americans who feel exactly the same way about their right to keep and bear arms.  So to you anti-gunners; stop your whining, sniveling and groveling and get with the values and freedoms that are protected and should be respected under the Constitution.


From a copy of a poster which is hanging in my office (Author Unknown)

We, the sensible of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt-ridden delusional, and other liberal, commie, pinko bedwetters.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that a whole lot of people were confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim that they require a Bill of No Rights.

  1. You do not have the right to a new car, big-screen color TV or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.
  2. You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone—not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc., but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
  3. You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all of your relatives independently wealthy.
  4. You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.
  5. You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we’re just not interested in public health care.
  6. You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and kill you.
  7. You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big-screen color TV or a life of leisure.
  8. You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have one, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities in education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
  9. You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to pursue happiness—which, by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created by those around you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.
  10. This is an english speaking country.  We do not care where you are from.  We welcome you here.  English is our language and like the one you left behind, we have a culture.  Learn it or go back to the living conditions and the country you were fleeing from. 

God Bless America.

Apparently the White House referred to Christmas Trees as Holiday Trees for the first time this year which prompted CBS presenter, Ben Stein, to present this piece which I would like to share with you. I think it applies just as much to many countries as it does to America.The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession:

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees. I don’t feel threatened. I don’t feel discriminated against. That’s what they are, Christmas trees.

It doesn’t bother me a bit when people say, ‘Merry Christmas’ to me. I don’t think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn’t bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu. If people want a creche, it’s just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don’t like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don’t think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can’t find it in the Constitution and I don’t like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren’t allowed to worship God ? I guess that’s a sign that I’m getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it’s not funny, it’s intended to get you thinking.

Billy Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her ‘How could God let something like this happen?’ (regarding Hurricane Katrina).. Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, ‘I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?’

In light of recent events… terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said okay.

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with ‘WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.’

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it…. no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,

Ben Stein


As the year 2012 comes to a close; who gets your vote for the most ridiculous person of the year?  It should be someone who spouts such utter nonsense; that every time you hear them say anything it comes across as sheer, utter madness.  I’ll begin by saying my vote for the most ridiculous person of the year; who is so far ahead of everyone else in this category, would have to be Piers Morgan from CNN.  He is to fair and ethical reporting what Pizza Hut is to healthy eating.
