Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

And What Do The Anti-gun Groups Have

This was a topic of discussion at both the Para-USA weekend and the last 2nd Amendment Blog Bash: What do the anti-gun groups have to offer their supporters? Anti-gun ranges? Anti-gunshows?

I was just made aware of this very good idea, the April 24 Rio Salado Open House:

Open House and Swap Meet

Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club in Mesa

Saturday, April 24, 2010 9:00am – 4:00pm

Yes, it’s time to enjoy a FREE day of fun and activities for the entire family at one of the best outdoor shooting ranges in the country.

Open House at Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club is a day to invite the shooting and non-shooting public to an enjoyable, educational, hands-on day exploring the many shooting activities available at Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club. This is your chance to discover one of the best shooting ranges in Arizona where you can bring your entire family for a safe, fun experience and improve your marksmanship skills.

Experience the fast paced, run and gun of USPSA Action Pistol, or the very family-friendly, Tuesday Night Steel. Go back to the 1880’s with the Cowboy Posse dressed in period clothing and shoot a Western SixGun, or get your adrenaline pumping with some fully automatic machine gun fire with our Full Auto Division. Slow it down a bit and learn how to load a black-powder rifle or pistol and try your hand at throwing the hawk and knife. Maybe a .22 will be easier but those targets are mighty small! The Sporting Clays Range has fast become one of the best in Arizona, and the recent addition of a 5-Stand allows you to shoot flying clays.

Each of our competition divisions will be available for you to experience the many competition opportunities the club offers. For each event, we will provide equipment and orientation, or you can use your own. Here is your chance to try something new!

We will have a number of exhibition events to demonstrate various shooting techniques by some of our own members who have become National and World Champions. They make it look easy but it takes years of practice and thousands of rounds to get there. We will also have a number of community organizations putting on demonstrations, so stay tuned for details as we fill in the schedule!

This year is going to be even bigger since there will be tables where you can buy, sell, or swap that excess stuff from the back of your safe!

If you are interested, please email Scott Durkin at for more details.

The Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club Open House is FREE to the public. Eye and Ear protection is required for everyone. Bring your own or we will have them for a small charge. There will be activities and information for the entire family. Bring your friends, work associates, and anyone you can think of that might want to see what this shooting thing is all about. Food and drinks will be available.

Come spend A Day at the Range!
Sounds like fun!
