In the book Was God on Vacation? Jack van der Geest talks about his experiences during WWII. The first thing the Nazis did when they invaded The Netherlands was to get all the gun registration records then go door-to-door and if the people couldn’t produce the weapon they were shot on the spot.

It has long been a Swiss tradition
To avoid any foreign wars
But to plan and promise perdition
To any foe at the door
The Swiss government trusts its people
To be patriots in deed and thought
And by trusting obtain the loyalty
On the level that can’t be bought
They show trust by commending
The keeping of serious arms
In return they obtain a people
That keeps its country from harm
* * edit * *
The same applies to the people
In certain united States
They seek no trouble abroad
But smite any foe they face
* * edit * *
For people of this free country
Much like the worthy Swiss
Don’t fire unless molested
But then very seldom miss
If you’d like to read the whole piece:
“It does not matter what preceded the shooting. It does not matter what words were exchanged. It does not matter what the history may have or may not have been between the two men.
Think about how simple tactics of avoidance and evasion could have prevented this shooting.”
You never know what the other guy may be packing, so play nice – and be prepared for the guys who don’t care about “nice”.
When it’s possible, it is far better to avoid trouble than to confront it. When you must confront trouble, be prepared.
ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – “When three teenage burglars pried open the door of a northwest Albuquerque home they had no idea they would be met by a brave little girl, police said Wednesday.
“Alyssa Gutierrez, 11, took matters into her own hands Tuesday when police said when Miguel Marquez, Eduardo Zubiate and Jesus Quintana broke into her home.
Gutierrez armed herself with a loaded rifle.
“I was planning, if they came right next to me, I would shoot them,” Gutierrez said.
But Gutierrez, who will start sixth grade next week, never got the chance because she’d spooked the burglars.”
“The District of Columbia has been ordered to pay more than $1 million in lawyers’ fees in a historic gun case that was ultimately decided by the Supreme Court. Dick Heller sued the city in 2003 over its ban on handgun ownership and the Supreme Court overturned the ban in June 2008, saying it violated the Second Amendment.
A federal judge on Thursday awarded his lawyers $1,137,072 in fees and expenses. The lawyers had argued they should be awarded $3.1 million.”
Student warned that another incident could earn suspension
“In the past, a gunmaker’s name on a pen and a drawing of a space weapon have been enough to bring down school officials’ wrath on students; now it’s a piece of pizza.
At an elementary school in Smyrna, Tenn., student Nicholas Taylor, 10, has been ordered to spend lunches for the rest of the semester at the lunchroom’s “silent table” because he allegedly picked up a piece of pizza and waved it around like a gun.
According to a WKRN television report, school officials say Taylor “threatened” other students “with a piece of pizza with bites out of it so it looked like a gun.”
The station said his mother, LeAnn Taylor, described the punishment as “absolutely ridiculous” and said her son never said anything derogatory or anything about shooting.
“The kid across the table from him said it looked like a gun so he picked it up and started shooting it in the air,” she said, according the television report.”
“Mostafa Kamel Hendi, armed with what was later identified as a pellet gun, attempted to rob the We Buy Gold shop in Hendersonville, North Carolina. The store clerk, Derek Mothershead, punched him in the nose and knocked him out. While waiting for police to arrive, Mothershead handed Hendi a roll of paper towels and made him clean the floor of his own blood.”

“If you carry a gun, you need to recognize that the reason you do so is for personal protection, not to transform yourself into a would-be super hero. Carrying a gun does not give you a license to get involved in situations that are none of your business. It does not give you the authority of a police officer. Your job is to stay safe and keep your loved ones safe.
It makes good sense as a general principle to avoid becoming inextricably involved in confrontations where you are not directly affected in the first place. You take a risk when you involve yourself in other people’s arguments. This is not to say that there will never be a situation that is worth the risk, but that is a personal decision.”

“Although I can carry comfortably on the waist, inside or out, I carry a Double Action Only (DAO) pistol in my front pants pocket most of the time. A good pocket holster will break up the outline of the gun and stabilize it so that when you make the draw it isn’t out of position. The holster should have some friction material on it so that it stays in place when the draw is made. Drawing both together wastes time, as you will have to strip the holster from the gun in order to use it.
Spare ammunition is carried in the opposite side pocket to balance the load. Nothing else should be carried in these pockets, as under stress, you could just as easily draw your keys as your gun or magazine.”

“I guess that headline isn’t 100 percent true, because I really do love guns.
The point I’m trying to make here is that many people forget that the firearm is only a tool. It’s simply a means to an end. I carry a gun because it’s one of the most effective tools that I’m aware of for self-defense.
I carry a gun because I’ve made the personal decision that the person who is 100 percent responsible for the safety of my loved ones is named Tim Schmidt.
I carry a gun because I don’t think I’d be able to live with myself if I was ever in a situation where I couldn’t protect my wife and kids.
I carry a gun because it is one of the many personal protection layers that I’ve created for myself.
I carry a gun because while I expect and hope for good and perfect outcomes, I understand that evil will always exist in our world.
I carry a gun because my daughter and my wife each believe that no matter what happens, her daddy and her husband will always be able to protect her.
I carry a gun because I want to teach my kids that it will someday be their responsibility to protect their loved ones.
I carry a gun because I LOVE life.
I carry a gun because I am a responsibly armed citizen.
