  1. Illinois State Police Dragging Their Feet on Concealed Carry Permits?


    Why must politician's methodically screw with us, your average, law abiding Joe Citizen?


    On January 8th, 2014 the Chicago Tribune reported the Illinois State Police had approved and cleared more than 13,000 concealed carry permits. In the article it states - "The Illinois State Police said Tuesday that it had completed the initial approval of more than 13,000 concealed carry applications, moving residents a step closer to being able to carry loaded firearms in public." ...
  2. Ampa! Protek me!



    When Gianna, my oldest granddaughter, was a pudgy, stumbling, giggling, smiling beautiful two-and-a-half year old, she had an epiphany about me and what I was willing to do for her. At a bar-b-Que at my house, my brother was playing with her, laughing, tickling and such, when he gave her the scary face and the playfully menacing scowl and then a low growl.

There isn't a fact they won't ignore, a catch phrase they don't embrace or a heinous, emotional event they won't stoop to aggrandize for the sake of their own desperate, rights infringing cause. Like Ham Porter in the movie Sandlot, I want to look a them and scream... "You're killin' me, Smalls!"

    But what really raises my ruckus is their pompous, arrogant, tsk tsk tsking, holier-than-thou ...
  5. Why Will I Carry?

    Those friends and family who’ve known me most of my life may have been surprised by my sudden jump into gun ownership, but the reality is, I was never against guns, I'd just never felt the need to keep a gun in my home if I wasn’t able to carry it on my person on a daily basis.

    I never saw the point of keeping a loaded gun in the home with children around, the risk vs reward factor, for me, was too high. Some of the thoughts that went into that decision were based on, in ...
