Over 1,133,884 guns have already been used in self-defense this year. Americans are not exposed to the harsh reality of the criminal element in the U.S. because the liberal media is not about to highlight the embarrassment. Unfortunately, history (WWII by example) is replete with grizzly outcomes when a citizenry allows a government to confiscate their guns. At one of the most dangerous points in our nation’s history, concerned citizen-based organizations like Oath Keepers are forming to protect the Constitutional rights of all Americans.
The U.S. Supreme Court now stands with four anti-Second Amendment justices. Americans are but one potential vote away from having their Second Amendment rights compromised. Please take a minute and watch the video of Justice Breyer below to get a full understanding of the peril that is potentially only a single vote away.
Debbie and I are Florida concealed weapons license holders and Life Members of the NRA. We take the subject of personal security and preparation seriously. Think about it. Preparation carries with it zero risk and unlimited upside potential. Debbie and I own a wide array of personal defense tools, including a nice roster of firearms and abundant ammo. Should you and your family be faced with a life-threatening situation, there is only one weapon you want to hold.
You want to be proficient with a Mossberg 930 auto-loading shotgun. I’m not referring here to a pump shotgun that is popular in cops and robbers movies. As you will read in the excellent article I am linking you to here, it is an autoloader that you want. This is a great personal defense article, one of the best I have encountered. Read with care what author Richard Johnson has to say about (1) shotgun recoil and a 20-gauge shotgun loaded with #3 buck; (2) a Knoxx recoil reduction stock from BLACKHAWK; (3) today’s criminal element, the predator; and (4) the Mossberg 930 Home Security shotgun.
Enjoy and benefit from Mr. Johnson’s great essay on your family’s personal security. I hope you and your family members will sign up for an NRA-sponsored gun safety course. Debbie and I were required to have such a course in order to qualify for our Florida concealed weapons license. The NRA-sponsored course was both excellent and quite demanding, which included being on target 15 times in succession with a sizable pistol we had not seen before. No misses accepted. One needed to have one’s game face on.
Finally, I hope each of you will order Sheriff Richard Mack’s excellent The County Sheriff America’s Last Hope. Sheriff Mack begins, “The founders of America warned us that we would lose more freedoms from gradual encroachment by those in authority than from any foreign enemy… America is at the threshold of what appears to be utter despotism.” You can click to Sheriff Mack’s website on my home page. I will have more on Sheriff Mack soon.
