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

THIS is Charity

Eva Mickelthwaite, is a competitive IPSC/USPSA shooter here in Arizona.  Some friends of hers live in Yarnell, the area recently devastated by wildfire:
As you all may know the Yarnell Fire has burned more than 8000 acres in Arizona.  It has devastated the town of Yarnell and abruptly took the lives of 19 brave men, a loss that will be felt for a very long time to come.

Unfortunately, as many of you may already know, it has also taken the home of Steve & Debi Keehner.  Due to the age of the home, it was un-insurable, so it is a complete loss for them.

Annette Williamson and I have received an enormous amount of feedback from the shooting community asking what we can do to help.  At this time, we think the best way we can help is in the form of a monetary donation.  We have set up a Paypal link on my website that accepts many forms of payments.  We have also set up an account at Wells Fargo under "Keehner Rebuild Fund" in case you prefer to handle it the old fashioned way.  You will need to reference the zip code 85226 if you plan to go to the bank.

Please take the time to make a donation, no matter how small.  We received our first $10 donation from the Wells Fargo account specialist  who set up the account. She contributed out of her personal pocket for a couple she doesn't know.  It all adds up folks, and I'm sure they will appreciate whatever we are able to do. (BTW...they have only just been told about this account. We're not sure they are aware of the amount of support they have behind them, but are about to see so).

Thanks to all of you who have contacted us to ask what can be done.  It was your overwhelming response that motivated us to make this happen.

If you have any questions or problems with the link, please feel free to email me at
