Lots of food for thought here. If you only have time to read one of these, take the first one. It’s vital.
- Five NEVERs of Self Defense. Normally, I’m not a big fan of “always” or “never.” But the five items on this list are ones that I can get behind 100%. Never, never, never, never, never!
- Woman Protects Her Own Life. Okay, that’s not the headline the evening news used about the woman who defended herself in a shootout with a violent criminal, but you know it’s accurate. In a more perfect world, her shooting would have been likewise.
- Human Sacrifices for Gun Control. This review of Brian Aitken’s memoirs provides some tough but important reading for principled gun owners. As Aitken discovered, the New Jersey Supreme Court really meant what it wrote in State v Pelletieri: “When dealing with guns, the citizen acts at his peril.” Aitken’s chilling tale provides a lesson for all law abiding gun owners to remember no matter where we live.
- Why Innocent People Plead Guilty. Ever wonder why–? Hopefully, this will never apply to you or anyone you care about. But if it does, the information in this article might change the way you think about our legal system.
- The Stupidity of the American Voter. Thought twice before putting this here since it’s a bit afield from my usual topics. Instead, I’m putting it up with a simple disclaimer: Don’t bother clicking this link if politics don’t interest you. But also? Please don’t ever vote if politics don’t interest you. 1
- One of the Real Causes of Violent Crime. Tim at GunNuts Media knocks this one out of the ballpark. Several times over.
- Just to be clear, I absolutely do not judge you if politics are not your thing, or if you vote differently than I do. That’s okay and not the end of the world. But can we both agree that voting should be reserved for those who care enough about it to understand what their votes will do to their families and communities? ↩
