Can You Have Too Many Guns?

Well of course not! Guns and Preppers go together like peanut butter and chocolate, or maybe beans and rice would be more appropriate, but I digress. Guns, yes, lots of guns; and I include myself in this fold as I have accumulated quite a few over the last couple of years and each with their own purpose. The problem we run into is which caliber or calibers of ammunition do you stockpile? Note: I recently purchased a little Ruger LCP2 .380 to carry on the trails when hiking, great little gun that fits the need, but certainly not the caliber I would choose to stockpile. No, unless you have an endless supply of money to spend on ammo, you must somehow narrow your focus down to just a couple of calibers. Now, if you want to create a firestorm of opinions, just ask what gun or guns would be best for a SHTF scenario – you will likely get 100 different opinions none of which might be appropriate for you. I have recently been faced with this dilemma and I wanted to take a few moments to share how we came to our decision and why (and yes yours will probably be different).

Flashback: Leftists Call For Harassment of Conservatives Everywhere – Including in Their Own Homes

Following the attempted assassination of several House Republicans I thought you might find this previous post relevant.

The left has a long history of violence, and that violence is escalating on a daily basis. The ‘open-minded’ are so enraged that not everyone thinks like they do that they are once again resorting to violence.  Recently a writer for the ever anti-American Huffington Post spewed out an article (under the header of Queer Voices) entitled ‘To Save America We Must Stop Being Polite And  Immediately Start Raising Hell’ in which he called for the escalation of “our outrage and our anger is a massive way.” He called for the harassment of conservatives everywhere including in their own homes while out of the other side of his mouth claiming that he is not calling for violence like the ‘thuggish behavior of the Trump supporters.’ Wink Wink Nudge Nudge

Left wing protesters

While I certainly support the right of all Americans to participate in peaceful protest, what we are seeing as of late is anything but peaceful. Burning police cars and smashing windows is NOT civil discourse. Let me ask you this, when have you seen conservatives throwing rocks and bottles at the police? When have you seen conservatives physically attack someone because they hold a different point of view? Reminder: it was Barack Obama who said “if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.” For once I actually agree with Mr. Obama; bring a gun. I am in no way encouraging anyone to go looking for a fight, but I do strongly suggest that you be very aware of your surroundings and prepared to defend yourself and your family should the need arise.

Lib Blogger Says It Should Be Illegal to Defend Yourself: Reblogged from ‘The Pesky Truth’

There’s stupid and then there’s that special level of stupid, where guys like Justin Curmi can be found. He is a blogger at the Huffington Post who wrote a piece explaining why we shouldn’t kill perpetrators in self defense. Here are some excerpts from his piece: “The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes […]

Trump: 1st President Since Reagan to Speak At NRA Annual Meeting

Bloomberg has announced that President Trump is scheduled to speak to the NRA’s 2017 Leadership Forum on April 28th. Love him or hate him, but Trump is clearly a departure from Washington’s ‘business as usual.’ If you support the 2nd Amendment, which was clearly designed to keep an overbearing government from disarming the public, then Trump is acting in your best interest (at least on this issue.)  

In the November election, we clearly ‘dodged a bullet,’ as Hillary Clinton had repeatedly expressed her bias against guns, gun owners, and has long sought to demonize groups such as the NRA. Trump on the other hand embraced the NRA and it’s supporters and our right to defend ourselves, our families and our liberty. Trump has already reversed Obama’s Social Security gun ban, and Obama’s ban on using lead ammunition on Federal land. Oh, did I forget to mention the nomination and confirmation of a conservative Supreme Court Justice? Thank you sir, may I have another?

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Happy prepping!
