"Dear Fellow Citizens,"

"In the never-ending battle to destroy our constitution, more 'big lie' propaganda is being dumped on our elected officials. The rhetoric given forth by the Violence Policy Center (VPC) so easily deceived the legislators of California, resulting in the banning of fifty caliber rifles because they are powerful and their bullets punch holes when they strike. Even single shot .50 cal rifles were banned. It's hard to believe we live in such a dark time that someone has actually banned a single shot rifle. But as you will see, this is the cleverest of all gun bans, and the end goal is civilian disarmament, the confiscation of your tools of liberty, your rifles." ...

"So I recently completed another trip around the sun (translation: birthday). As is tradition, my dog bought me a gift (translation: I bought myself something and said Ms. Pepper got it for me). For some reason, she has a knack for finding that one thing that no one else knew that I wanted. I guess it’s true: no one knows you like your best friend."

"So this year’s present was the Range Ready Bag from 5.11 Tactical. My old range bag was...old. It also wasn’t really meant for use as a range bag. It was for bringing sporting clay supplies to the range. It was essentially a stiff sided gym bag, when all was said and done so there was no real way to organize anything in it. ..." ...

"'Training with firearms is an inherently dangerous act' – I have seen this disclaimer, and ones just like it at basically every shooting class I’ve attended. We talk about the 4 Rules of Gun Safety, or Cardinal Rules of gun handling, and take precautions to minimize the danger presented by firearms."

"Yet, when someone that’s anti-gun says that firearms are dangerous, we’ll immediately turn out and point out that firearms accidents are at an all time low, and how a gun is just an inert piece of metal/plastic/wood unless it’s picked up by a human being. So which is it? Are guns dangerous or are they harmless? Is this a case of cognitive dissonance by gun owners or is there a reason behind the apparent inconsistency in logic?" ...

"In 2011, the centennial year of John Browning’s timeless pistol design, the market was inundated with 1911s. It seemed like all of the companies that had not already made a 1911 joined the celebration by launching versions of their own. Remington now makes a serviceable 1911 with very traditional looks. Springfield Armory released reasonably priced tack driver—The Range Officer. But the most stylish of the 1911s that sell for under a grand is the Ruger SR1911." ...

He survived the natural disaster no problem, but knew he might not live through the rampant anarchy that followed. There is no doubt in his mind that, if not for that rifle, he would likely not be with us today."

"Handguns are handy in such situations—and I will always have one on my hip in such times—but a rifle is essential. A man with a rifle has options, he can put distance between himself and predators, and he has long-range firepower that is effective at long range, but devastating at close range. A man with a rifle can defend his home and family, or strap it across his chest and walk out ..." ...

Neither candidate mentioned the issue in his speech at their party’s convention; neither has any plans to change the status quo.
