Subject:  Senior At the Gun Store...



At the Gun Store


Yesterday morning, I went over to the local Bass Pro Shop to get a 9mm handgun for home/personal protection.  When I was ready to pay for the pistol and some ammo, the cashier said, "Strip down, facing me."


Making a mental note to complain to the NRA about the gun control wackos running amok, I did just as she had instructed.  When the hysterical shrieking and alarms finally subsided, I found out she was referring to how I should place my credit card with the chip in the card reader!!!

As an intelligent senior citizen, I do not get flustered often.  But this time, it took me a while to get my pants back on.  I've been asked to shop elsewhere in the future.


They need to make their instructions to seniors a little more clear.  I still don't think I looked that bad...........Just need to wear underwear more often!

Defensive Gun Uses Abound Nationwide

The Second Amendment is in the U.S. Constitution as a bulwark against tyranny. The right to keep and bear arms is primarily about protection of the Constitution and the Liberty it enshrines. It is only secondarily about personal protection and hunting. Too many Second Amendment advocates fail to drive this point home.
Given that foundation, however, and while the Left is busy exploiting the deaths of innocents to ramp up efforts to destroy Liberty through various proposals to ban guns from the law-abiding, it is also important to note that firearms save lives.
In July alone, there were numerous examples of law-abiding Americans using firearms to prevent crimes and save lives. We'll give just the briefest of details of a handful of those stories:
A South Carolina man shot a drunken attacker. A disabled Florida senior was wounded by four armed men who broke into his home, but he used an AR-15 to kill two of them while sending the two others fleeing. A San Diego man killed an assailant who was stabbing his father. A North Carolina woman killed an ax-wielding attacker. A Tennessee Uber driver shot a man who had fired on his vehicle, defending himself and his passenger. A Louisiana man shot an attacker attempting a carjacking. Others in Kentucky, New Hampshire, Arizona, and elsewhere merely brandished their guns or held would-be burglars at gunpoint and awaited police.
Again, these are just a few examples of what in reality are millions of stories. In 2013, even Barack Obama's Centers for Disease Control affirmed studies showing that perhaps millions of lives are saved every year by the lawful defensive use of firearms. Bill Clinton's CDC conducted its own studies in 1996 and 1998, determining that there are "likely over 1 million defensive gun uses of guns" annually. More than 20 years later, concealed carry is more widely practiced. In fact, mere possession of firearms is a deterrent for countless crimes — whether criminals are stopped in the attempt by citizens brandishing a firearm, or whether people with a mind to commit a crime decide otherwise because a gun might be used against them.
In the end, this is all a reminder that "gun control" isn't about guns. It's about control.

"In the end, this is all a reminder that "gun control" isn't about guns. It's about control" 

As recently as the1990's, the Justice Department of the administration in office did not recognize the 2nd Amendment as a Constitutional right of the individual citizen to "Keep and Bear Arms"  Since then, the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that it is an individual right. History shows that Rights must be exercised or else they tend to be eroded, preempted or eliminated by those who want control. Let's also not forget Gun Safety. So called, "Accidental Discharges" and other misuse of guns provide ammunition to those who want to ban personal firearm ownership. As we reflect on the 2nd Amendment, the"1st Rule of Gun Safety", comes to mind:

"Carry it With You" . . . :)
