Terrorism should be defeated with love...and superior firepower...- Terry Ingle
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." --Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776

"Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. … In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society." Antonio Gramsci - Marxist - teacher of Saul Alinsky

Just thinking out loud...

It's been very interesting to speak to the customers who have come into the gun store these past weeks. Contrary to what anyone who knows me may think, I've been doing a lot of listening. The firearms have been flying off of the shelves in record numbers and I hear things like, " I've never owned a gun before, but I just have the feeling I should get one now," and, "After the way this election turned out, I just don't trust the government anymore," and, "At the rate we are loosing our freedoms, this is one I refuse to give up."

Now don't get me wrong, I firmly believe that an armed populous are citizens and unarmed people are subjects, but no matter how well we are armed and no matter what our resolve, our ultimate trust and dependence needs to be in our Lord.
I have encouraged every new gun owner to get signed up for training classes so that they can learn how to be knowledgeable and safe with this new responsibility they are taking on. There are few things that I can think of that would be more dangerous than a bunch of Sheep shooting at every shadow. Well...maybe one thing, Wolves that prey on Sheep who refuse to do nothing, and Sheepdogs who allow it.
