This is an interesting move, if this goes well it could make a very interesting statement. If it goes bad it could make all legal gun owners look bad, b/c of a select few. Let’s be smart about this guys & girls, be safe.

See what you think, what is your opinion on this?

Here is what the Facebook Fan Page Says

  • Washington, District of Columbia
  • On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free.There’s a remote chance that there will be violence as there has been from government before, and I think it should be clear that if anyone involved in this event is approached respectfully by agents of the state, they will submit to arrest without resisting. We are truly saying in the SUBTLEST way possible that we would rather die on our feet than live on our knees.You are welcome to attend unarmed as a supporter, or armed with a recording device.We especially invite law enforcement officers to stand with us armed however they feel is appropriate.

    If this page gets to 10,000 attendees by June 1st, & we have the critical mass necessary to pull this off, (1,000 actual attendees) we will march. Please spread the word, share this event, & invite all your friends.

Sheeple: People unable to think for themselves

The White House is using a Social Media service which is scheduling a massive Twitter/Facebook campaign.

The campaign is designed to trigger automated messages on the pages of people who sign up at a designated time.

Here is the URL for the campaign (DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR INFO):

They are going to “Twitter-bomb” Twitter and create a strong presence on Facebook.

What we are proposing (hat tip: Reddit) is to take over their proposed hashtag.

If you are on Twitter use the hashtag #NowIsTheTime on all of your Tweets. This is the hashtag they will be using.

Utah-CFPYesterday on 3/30/2013 I attend a class to obtain a Non-Resident Concealed Firearm Permit for Utah. The class was put on at a local gunshop called Buckshot Sporting Goods. The class was taught by Paul Slavin of utahconcealedcarryacademy.com. You can also find them on facebook at facebook.com/SafeShooting. I cannot say enough about this group of people who put this on. Paul Slavin is a very skilled and knowledgeable instructor. I will explain to you alittle about this class and the content.

The class was setup in a small conf room at a local motel. There were scheduled to be 17 people to attend the class. When you arrived the rep from Buckshot checked you in and collected the balance owed for the class. Then you were asked to step over to a area to get your picture taken. After that you were seated and everyone had a manila envelope for each person at your table. Then contained all the paperwork needed for the class including a quiz, Utah Applications, and a finger print form. There was also an outline of the class so you could take notes and some gun diagrams for the class to be used as reference material.

When Paul started the class he explained about all the paperwork you had received in your packet and what material you were responsable for filling out. There are things you could do (like not using black ink) that could get the applications delayed or not processed at all. Then he talked about what Blue Guns were and how he would be using them in training. If you want to see a what a blue gun is go here – blueguns.com I never realized that the training guns were so exact to almost every model of gun. Weird thing is for some reason my Taurus PT 709 is one I cannot find that bluegun makes at this time. The blue guns make it possible to train with maxim safety in the class or at home. As Paul pointed out drawing your weapon from your holstered position is one of the most dangerous things you can do during personal training. Having a good safe way to practice is the best way to go , so no one gets hurt, not a bad idea if you got your own bluegun or other training gun.

When the content/curriculum was delivered to the class it was following the Utah Mandatory Minimum Training Curriculum that can be found on the Utah.gov public safety Website.

BASIC HANDGUN SAFETY TRAINING

HANDGUN PARTS AND OPERATION (Revolver and Semi-automatic)

AMMUNITION

FUNDAMENTALS OF SHOOTING A HANDGUN “DEMONSTRATE

SAFE HANDLING

UTAH CRIMINAL AND TRAFFIC CODE

Again for a complete list of all the content goto Mandatory Minimum Training link.

The class lasted about 4 1/2 hours with time for breaks. When you leave the class all you had to do it make a copy of your Indiana Gun Permit and your Drivers License. Then you get a certified check for $51 and mail it the address already on the Manila envelope. Pretty simple. I forgot to mention the cost for the class per person was $80 plus the $51 application and processing fee. Paul said Utah has had a turn around of about 2 months.

Again this was a great experience, and I am glad my wife and I did this. Makes me want to see about taking more of Pauls Training.

2013 United States Traveler’s Guide to the Firearm Laws of the 50 States (Gun Laws for all Fifty States, 17th Edition) [Paperback] You can find this on amazon.com Follow this link

Travelers who carry firearms on a regular basis know full well the variant nature of this situation. A routine traffic stop for a speeding violation could turn into a nightmare journey through the criminal justice system if the traveler isn’t aware of the proper way to carry or transport his firearms in a vehicle. Attorney J. Scott Kappas uses case law and statutory authority to render plain English advice as to how a traveler should carry firearms while visiting the many states of our great nation. Kappas’ book is not simply a restatement of the statutes. It is an easily readable narrative designed to unlock the complexities of state firearm laws. Five hundred Fifty thousand readers agree, the Traveler’s Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States is indispensable for staying on the road and out of jail!

If you have any questions I will try to answer then the best I can.

Ammunition Shortage.jpgIn the last 6 months I am sure everyone that owns a gun is aware of the current ammunition shortage.  There is alot of speculation of why this has become a problem. The shortage doesn’t effect all types of ammo , atleast from what I am seeing. For instance if you shoot 7.62X54r your in luck Dunham’s has plenty military surplus as do the gunshows and other dealers. You can also find 12 gauge target loads about anywhere so skeet and trap shooters your in luck too. This biggest problem is for .223 .40 and 9mm ammo is the hardest to find. I have recently visited a local gun show to find pretty much nothing except guns.  I was searching for reloading supplies, ammo, and other misc items and found nothing but limited and overpriced ammo.  I am amazed how this is working out. As far as our local gun stores they have been getting a few boxes of ammo but they are usually $20 or more of hollow points.  I’m not really in favor of shooting that type of ammo for target practice. I did see 100rds of 9mm FMJ for $50, not a good deal.

Now lets discuss the root of this problem ,if you didn’t know  its the federal government. Since Obama was elected its pretty clear the liberals would love nothing more to remove the guns or ability to use them from law abiding US Citizens.  This would at any point in the future allow them to run us over with their style of government. Every dictator in history first disarmed their citizens first. I believe no matter what anyone says or what the Feds excuses are they are buying this ammo up to keep it from everyone else. THEY WANT TO WAGE A WAR AGAINST US.  They are draining the system of its supplies. There is no logical reason for this. The ammunition manufactures are filling gov orders and pushing everyone else to the back of the line. It goes farther than that, if you think reloading your own ammo will help you then good luck on getting supplies b/c the manufactures are buying bullets, powder, primers, and alot of supplies needed for reloading. You add this to the scare that Obama being elected and the Newtown shooting, everyone is buying anything they find. I am not sure what the solution is for this, but I wish there would be a real answer from someone at the federal government. DHS will not even answer to anyone even our own senators or congress. This is ridiculous, someone should get some real answers. Are we going to sit back and wait for them to eliminate a way for us to protect ourselves and our family. We cannot afford to let this happen.  This is a known problem and we need answers and a solution. Let me know what you guys think. I propose we start emailing manufactures of ammunition and ask them to stop selling ammo to the Federal Government until they give a concreate answer and proof of why they need 1.6 billion rounds and and other 360,000 in the last order. This isn’t for the US Military (they are getting cut) this is for the DHS, Department of Ag, FDA, IRS, you know all the federal agencies that need alot of ammo.  Even our local Law Enforcement agencies are having problems obtaining regular amounts of ammunition. You have read the news and there is more to this.  Some firearm manufactures are refusing to sell to state and local law enforcement agencies if the laws prohibit the residents of that state from owning them.  I wish they would restrict the Feds in the same way. with ammunition. This is an arms race with our own government against every us citizen. The worst part is we elect them and pay for them to make these decisions. I hope people are rethinking the last election and how they voted. This is what you get. Wait till it gets worse, it will be a log time before it get better. I just hope its not too late for our country.
