WHY YOU SHOULD OWN FIREARMS
AND KNOW HOW TO USE THEM
Glock 23 (.40 Caliber)
When the chips are down, and push comes to shove; you need to have a gun and know how to use it properly and safely. Do you really think you can reason with a meth head --- or a rapist --- or a three time loser? These people love the anti-gun crowd (HERE). And in case you were not aware, our government is trying to (gently) prepare the population for a collapse of society (HERE). The only problem is, they're not doing a great job of it. Make sure you do a better job than they are doing. For starters, don't do things the way that Kendra and her mom did. For all the praise that has been heaped upon Kendra and the people involved, there is a glaring problem in this story. You see, Kendra had never fired the pistol prior to having shot the intruder. If you are going to have guns in the house, you need to teach your kids how to use them ---- safely and effectively. This requires training. Periodically, buy some cheap Mal-Wart ammo and take your kids to the range. Or call me. I have a range back behind my house that some of our friends and local law enforcement use.
One more warning. Do not think for one moment that this kind of thing is an isolated event just because it was picked up by all the major news outlets. As a member of the NRA ($35 bucks a year), I get their monthly magazine, the American Rifleman. The issue always starts out with a feature called, "Armed Citizen". Rest assured --- what happened to Kendra is happening all over this country on a daily basis. It does not matter whether you live in the boonies like me, or the big city. There are people out there who will do unspeakable things to you and your family if given half a chance. I suggest you exercise your 2nd Amendment right to Bear Arms (emphasis on the plural), and get some training. MATT TRUDE'S CLASS is a fabulous starting point.
