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

GBR IV Update

GBR IV Update

Well, the numbers have been crunched, and here's what Mr. C has to say:
...after sorting it all out, and adding in all money received from
  • On line raffle ticket sales
  • GBR-IV Registrations
  • Donations
  • Raffle Tickets sold at GBR-IV
We cleared a grand total of


and we had a ball doing so!

I should also mention that National Shooting Sports Foundation (AKA NSSF) at the last minute donated an additional $1,000 to Project Valour-IT. This is in addition to their buying us pizza on Saturday night! If you would like to thank them for their generosity, an email to

should do the job!
That's about four times what was raised last year! And about half of that total came from the GI Expert / Front Site Certificate online raffle ticket sales! Thanks again to all of you who bought tickets!

The winner of the Para GI Expert received his prize today, and (given the sterling efficiency of the Post Office) I expect the winner of the Front Site certificate to receive his prize tomorrow, since I mailed it out Certified Mail, Signature Required on Tuesday.

Here's hoping GBR V will be even better!
