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

90 Days and Counting

90 Days and Counting

This year's Gun Blogger's Rendezvous is now 90 days away and closing. I've made my hotel reservations (9/10-9/12, checking out Sunday) and put in for vacation.

I want to reiterate: this isn't a trade show, a sales meeting, or multi-level marketing - it's a gathering of people of like mind for three or four days of fun, conversation, food, drink, recreational shooting, and other adult activities. And it takes place right next door to Circus Circus, where the kiddies can have a good time too! (My wife and I are bringing the grandkids this year, I think.)

BUT the Rondy is sponsored (thanks to tireless efforts by Mr. Completely, the organizer of this thing) by several of the major players in the field:

Para USA

Hi Point Firearms

Dillon Precision


and this year, GLOCK

And others - and this year, me, since I'm donating a Para myself.

That is to say, there's a lot of swag at this thing, and the chance to win some pretty damned nice stuff. (I've brought home a damned nice Brownell's range bag, a Dillon Border Shift ammo bag, some Brownell's AR15 magazines, and other stuff.) Plus, we raise money for a very good charity, Project Valour IT.

A lot of the blogger attendees of May's NRA convention 2A Blog Bash have said that the thing they wish they could have done more of was interact with sit around and shoot the shit with the other bloggers.

This is the event for that.

This year as an extra added bonus we will have as our guest of honor Alan Gura, the lawyer who argued D.C. v. Heller in front of the Supreme Court and won, and who will (hopefully) be arguing NRA v. Chicago before it in the not-too-distant future. How can you pass up that opportunity?

Hey, Mike Vanderboegh might even show up. (I'm still hoping U.S. Citizen gets Summer Glau to appear, but . . .)

And you don't even need to be a blogger! Want to meet the people you read? C'mon down! The more the merrier!

Plus, Reno in September should be beautiful. (Not f*^king freezing and snowing like last year! Unless Al Gore plans on being in town that weekend.)

So scrape your pennies together now, and sign up! September isn't that far away!
