If you’re paying attention to current events across the U.S.A. and on the world stage you should be comforted in knowing that your decision to own firearms and be skilled in their use, is the right thing to do, is a ‘right’ that the majority of the world population does not enjoy, and which you absolutely need to maintain your status as a citizen and not a subject or slave !
Sure, that’s a mouthful, but look around. Some folks believe calling the police via 911 and hiding in your home, business, school or church, waiting for the Calvary to arrive is the right thing to do. Then you look at the real-world events in Parkland, Florida and you see a No Confidence vote being levied against Broward Sheriff Scott Israel for the mis-handling of the school shooting on his watch. Even his officers that did respond were told to stay behind their vehicles and disengage ! I guess it doesn’t matter how quick the Calvary gets there, if they’re going to wait outside until it’s safe. How does that help you and your family ? Our motto on these pages has from day one been, YOU are the First Responder for your family !
Swing your focus now to Deerfield, Illinois where it could soon be illegal to own an AR-15, AK-47 or an Uzi because Mayor Harriet Rosenthal and the Deerfield Village Board feel it is: “not reasonably necessary to protect an individual’s right of self-defense or to preserve a well-regulated militia” and “We hope that our local decision helps spur state and national leaders to take steps to make our communities safer”. The libs and progressives are using any and every tragedy they can to maneuver around our 2nd Amendment rights and find a way to make us succumb to their wishes.
Virtually every day, firearms are used to protect life, liberty and property from those that would do us harm or even take our very lives. Where are those articles, news reports and celebrations ? They obviously don’t fit the narrative that the main stream – fake news media want to promote. So again, we must rely on ourselves, our training and maintain our beliefs in the wake of all these attacks.
You may remember a famous quote from Bruce Lee in the movie ‘Enter the Dragon’, that boards don’t punch back. The same principle applies to shooting on the range, if all you shoot at are paper targets. If you want to really be prepared to handle a self-defense situation with a firearm, you’ll need more realistic training. There are several good training programs across the country and right here in South Carolina that you can check into. That training should include unloaded drills walking around your own home in the dark, use of a Citadel or safe room that you must set up in advance, and drilling with your family members, so everybody is up to speed. These drills can apply to other emergencies like fire in the home, etc.
Don’t be a victim…be a STREET Survivor !
