I enjoy reading about guns, gun safety and what is going on these days in reference to our rights to carry and possess weapons. This magazine “ConcealedCarry“, well worth the read and full of great information concerning our rights to protect ourselves and our families.
55 out of 62 Colorado county sheriffs have stated they will not enforce any new gun control law that may infringe on the Constitution. Recent December 2013 article from the Examiner.com – “Gun control – what if we say no?
Well it looks like its going to start:
Last month it was revealed that out of the over 2.4 million high-capacity magazines in Connecticut, only 38,000 have been registered.
Likewise, only 50,000 semiautomatic rifles were also registered, further proof that Connecticut’s gun owners are revolting through civil disobedience.
One guy stated: “I believe I would remove the gun from the state…..it would be in the same Uhaul as the rest of my belongings.” I think I would have to agree – I would move, your welcome to come to Arizona.
“The Second Amendment does require that the states permit some form of carry for self-defense outside the home,” the panel said. “States may not destroy the right to bear arms in public under the guise of regulating it.”
So time will tell how and when a case makes it to the highest court. So voicing your concerns to your legislature and staying informed will keep the people who make decisions aware of your vote.
This first story got me to thinking, you’re sitting in your car and you see 2 suspected shoplifters arguing with a Security Guard and then the female suspected shoplifter pulls a weapon – What do you do?
Most Carry Concealed Weapons (CCW) don’t differentiate between rifles or handguns, and this story is because most people don’t understand and they PANIC.
I personally don’t have any issues with background checks, but what do you think?
I remember as a kid participating in Gun Safety through the Ohio Hunter Safety Program and highly recommend and encourage parents to sign up their children. A trained person is a responsible person.
1. Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction; always think of a weapon as loaded until checked.
2. Firearms should be unloaded when not actually in use.
3. Don’t rely on your gun’s “safety”.
4. Be sure of your target & what’s beyond it.
5. Use correct ammunition.
6. If your gun fails to fire when the trigger is pulled, handle with care!
7. Always wear eye & ear protection when shooting.
8. Be sure the barrel is clear of obstructions before shooting.
9. Don’t alter or modify your gun, and have guns serviced regularly.
10. Learn the mechanical & handling characteristics of the firearm you are using.
The two that relate primarily to gun control:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
