I thought that this picture from last August was quite fetching…but somebody on Twitter disagreed. By the “inside and out” part he’s either affirming I’m a cis-female, or just that I’m Bad-to-the-Bone. 🙂
Many businesses in Texas seemed to take little notice of concealed-carry permittees over the years. Today, January 1st, 2016, it’s a different story.
A tyrant of sorts (Bloomberg? Everytown? Moms Demand Action? Fill-in-the-blank Against Guns?) has somehow awakened them to the “threat” that we personal-defense folks seemingly pose to them and their other clientele. With the chimes of New Year’s not yet faded, we wake to discover some of our favorite shops and theaters no longer welcome we the Free People, we the Citizen First-Responders. Not only have these places posted the new 30.07 Open-Carry Firearms’ Prohibition, but have added the 30.06 Concealed-Carry Firearms’ Prohibition where previously none was to be found.
It is a sad day when one thinks they are gaining a Freedom (clearly it is a “privilege” or it would have been there all along) only to witness a measure of earlier Freedom+Safety snatched away. The irony (and let’s hope it’s coming from merely naivete) is that those professing the desire to “protect” the innocent who frequent their businesses have now left them more vulnerable than ever.
What a great name for a color: “Harvest Moon Orange!”
I am tired of anti-Liberty types trotting out suicide stats, unsupervised toddlers – with idiot-parents – killing fellow toddlers, “other countries with no guns having no gun crime,” etc. Thomas Jefferson called the concept “rightful Liberty” and as in so many other things, he said it best, so forgive my meme-i-fication.
18 oct 2015 was a beautiful day to be on the range at Dallas Pistol Club. Had fun at the match but also a first: a couple of ammo-jams in my Smith & Wesson (purple!) 22 rimfire rifle.
So pleased to see this.
