Fighting small fires

Have you ever spent any time fighting fire? In the woods or maybe a grass fire? If you have you know you need to jump on things as soon as you can. Extinguish it while it is still small. A spark might start something on the other side of your fire break and if you don’t put it out soon it will quickly get as big as the original blaze.

John Snyder is helping us by dealing with a spark from the mostly contained, but still burning fire, of the gun control movement. The Vatican is supporting gun control at the UN:

The St. Gabriel Possenti Society, a Virginia-based organization devoted to protecting the individual’s right to self-defense, criticized statements by Archbishop Celestino Migliore, the Holy See’s representative at the UN, endorsing “the promotion of disarmament” and calling for stiffer international controls on the sale and possession of firearms.

John Snyder, the founder and chairman of the St. Gabriel Possenti Society, said the archbishop’s words pointed to a “terribly misguided secular political initiative.” He urged Catholics in the US to protest that initiative.

This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned Mr. Snyder. He was dealing with another small fire a few months ago.

You should also know that John Snyder isn’t just some random person. He’s also the Capital Hill Editor of Gun Week.
