Apparently, a lot of firearms wound up under the christmas tree this year. This is a good thing. One of the things I really like about this country.
A timely example of how this return to taking responsibility for our own lives played out right before my eyes over the Christmas break. I was fortunate to go shooting with a couple of friends, a husband and a wife, and the wife had never shot a gun before in her life. The husband had purchased a Ruger .380 LCP, a Glock model 27, and a Smith & Wesson Governor revolver. We shot each weapon repeatedly until Mary settled on the one she was most comfortable operating. As we were packing up her husband said: Okay, this gun will be in your nightstand, ready to go if anyone breaks in when Im not home.
America is the land of the free, and that freedom was exemplified on Christmas as Santa did his part in bringing us guns we can keep and bear for self-defense.
