Quote of the day—Robert J. Avrech

We need Liberal control, not gun control in order to save lives.

Comment to Stalked: Girl Without A Gun
[There is more than a little truth to this statement. The liberal agenda enables and emboldens criminals both on the streets and in control of the power of the state.

Reading the post made me think of Barb L. and her "I can't wait until he is my ex" husband (as she described her husband in the first few minutes of our first date). Her situation probably wasn't as bad as the one detailed in the post but still she "got her affairs in order" before the divorce papers were served on him because she believed the chances were significantly greater than zero that he would kill her after he was served.

The papers were served several months ago and Barb's anxiety has decreased some. We seldom talk about it but it's not something I ever forget. We recently found out that he knows she is "seeing someone" and he knows my name.

Every visit to her place, every time she visits me, every time we see each other at lunch I wonder if he or a friend is watching. He certainly knows where she lives and works but does he know where I live and work too? Would he be able to find her and the kids at my place if things ever "got ugly"? Sometimes people "raise their eyebrow" when they get hints as to the extent I safeguard the address of my residence but this is one of those times I'm glad I have.

I go to the observation deck of my clock tower when I hear her car drive up and as she leaves my place to make sure she makes it across the parking lot safely. As far as I'm concerned it's a known distance range and if I can see it with my naked eye I can hit it. Her 300 pound "I can't wait until he is my ex" husband would be easily visible, even without my glasses, in the parking lot.

I've taught her how to use a gun and she, her children, and I will soon be taking an Insights class together. The best way to save lives is to be responsible for our own safety. Acquiring the skills and tools to do that effectively are an essential part of being responsible adults. Many liberals want to do away with that. This has and will cost many lives.—Joe]

  1. Just took the Defensive Knife I class there. Nice, small group. Lots of rolling around on the floor fighting to keep the gun in the holster and the get the knife out of the pocket, dealing with bear hugs, head locks, choke holds, etc., and do some simulated hamstring carving on guys who were mostly bigger than I was. Much fun, and very educational, if a little hard on the knees. Need so sign up for a couple of other classes, too.

    The quality of training available in this area is REALLY good.

  2. Oh, that Boy-and-Girl thing. What consoles me in my lonely old bachelorhood, is that I was never much of a horndog even when young, and now that I am old, I find all of that intersexual drama to be mildly amusing.

    Also, I like the idea of avoiding occasions of deadly violence.

  3. If it is useful to know basic first aid, CPR, and how to check the fluids and tire pressure of your car, and how to change a tire, why are other skills of self-reliance not similarly valued by the left? After all, there is no guarantee that any of them will prevent bad things from happening (CPR is not some magic heart-starter) any more than carrying a gun will prevent you from harm if a robber seeks to eliminate witnesses.
    I’ll have to look into this insights thing.
