WELCOME to All Supporters of the 2nd Amendment, Shooting and Firearms Enthusiasts!

This Blog Site is dedicated to those that have served our great country and to my fallen comrades in the Marine Corps: Cpl. John Alfonzo, LCpl. Johnson, Sgt. Zinser and others who tragically perished along with 16 other Marines on March, 22nd 1989  when their  Sea Stallion CH-53D helicopter crashed near P’ohang, South Korea. And to Earl Andersen, call sign: “EDGE” a fellow 1986 Citadel graduate who was killed while piloting his Harrier AV-8B over the South China Sea on January 26th, 1990.  He died while on a training flight from Kadena Air Base on Okinawa to Osan Air Base in South Korea. His AV-8B Harrier fell from 35,800 feet, sliced through a cloud bank and disappeared into the water. Neither the aircraft nor his body was ever found.

In addition to those above, tragically on April 23,  2012 my son “Dub” as we affectionately called him went to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  So now along with those who I knew and served with in the Marine Corps my son’s name is added to the honor roll of those who have inspired me to fight on for our 2nd Amendment Rights.  God Bless America!  God Bless the United States Marine Corps!  God Bless “Dub”!  and God Bless the 2nd Amendment!

I love you son, I miss you and I will see you again!

The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of America, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent.  The Eagle became the National emblem in 1782 when the great seal of the United States was adopted. The Great Seal shows a wide-spread eagle, faced front, having on his breast a shield with thirteen perpendicular red and white stripes, surmounted by a blue field with the same number of stars. In his right talon the eagle holds an olive branch, in his left a bundle of thirteen arrows, and in his beak he carries a scroll inscribed with the motto: “E Pluribus Unum”…which is Latin for “Out of Many, One” attributed to Thomas Jefferson.

By now you know I am a HUGE advocate, proponent and supporter of the 2nd Amendment and the right that it affords each and every American Citizen.  I will do everything in my power and sphere of influence to educate, encourage and empower any and all gun owners to join the National Rifle Association and  similar organizations and support our 2nd Amendment right.

What part of “Shall NOT be Infringed” do so many people, state and local governments NOT understand?

27 words….THAT’s IT!  So brilliant in it’s SIMPLICITY, so POWERFUL that it says so much with so little.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    Great blog! Was just looking through the wordpress political blog newsfeed and found y’all! I support the 2nd amendment and I’m proud of it! Will be posting a 2nd amendment post soon on my blog. jthmishmash.com

  13. Nice blog. I look forward to visiting often.

    Semper Fidelis.

  14. Van Smith says:

    It seems to me that the 2nd amendment says ‘congress shall NOT infringe.’ It seems to me to be one of the ‘Bill of Rights.’ It is NOT a privilege the government may or may not give. It seems to me the Patriots (revolutionaries) are now in the process of supressing the counter-revolutionaries by trying to regulate access for the counter-revolutionaries. It seems to me that Justice is political.
    Since Justice is political then Crime is political. The right to bear arms means the right to oppose an unjust government NOT to protect oneself and family. It was to maintain a free society free of an oppressive government.

      Hello, my name is Torrey and I wanted to share this brand new grassroots fictional short film that heavily discusses gun rights & the 2nd Amendment, GMO food dangers as well as many other timely topics that affect our modern American families. The film is called “The Theorist” & it educates while it entertains. It was filmed & edited over a 90 day period in accordance with the “Operation Paul Revere” film contest. We are asking for people to share this video with their contacts. Thank you for your review ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjD98Sqdr2c

  15. Emmie Verd says:

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today..

  16. Matthew says:

    Please help me stop the UN Gun Control Treaty. Sign the petition at http://wh.gov/XiGU . Thank you for keeping our gun rights safe and America strong.

    The one link above is expired. Please do the one I just posted. We have 25 days left, and we’re at about 7300 now. Pass the link on. I don’t think a petition is going to help much, but it IS as much our right as the second amendment – use your rights, or lose them folks.

    Thanks

  19. I love This Blog! Awesome Job! Check out this video on Why YOU should Oppose Gun Control!

      For your Consideration

      As an LEO when confronted with a gang of thugs terrorizing an area, I have used this simple and effective strategy.

      1. Identify the Boss
      2. Make the Boss understand that unless he makes the thugs stop terrorizing the area, I will make his life miserable.
      3. It is called the “Slap & Pickle”

      In regards to the 2nd Amendment and Gun Control
      1. Boss: Banks and Wall street
      2. Thugs: Obama and anti-gun politicians
      3. “Slap & Pickle”: I will stop paying the mortgage on my house and business until Obama and anti-gun politicians restore my 2nd Amendment rights and stop trying to take them.

      Pros to Strategy:
      Money talks, it’s all about the money, it must flow
      Available to anyone regardless of age or physical condition
      Confrontation with authority averted at this point
      Re-election war chests negatively impacted

      Cons to Strategy:
      Credit rating lowered
      Look for a house to rent

      Respectfully submitted,
      P.O. I. FISH

  20. Thanks Joseph this is an awesome video. Appreciate your kind words and support. God Bless!

    From western NC>
    The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson

    Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. -George Washington

    The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -Samuel Adams

    God Bless you sir, What a beautiful tribute and site. Thanks for stopping by mine. Her’s another on guns for you. But of course, Holder was to busy trying to get as many guns as possible to sell to the Mexican drug cartels.

  23. Mr W says:

    The seconed amendment says in order for the people to form a militia , why would the people want to form a militia and if the people formed a milita who would they be fighting and what types of weapons would the other militia have that they would be fighting ? Would the be musket guns or guns that only held four bullets, and it seems to me that the seconed admeent was put in order for America to always be the land of the free and government is trying to take that away

  28. Jeff says:

    Hello!

    My name is Jeff. I’m a Casting Director at Firecracker Films, a television production company in California. We are currently producing a new show that we think will be of great interest to your members/readers and I was wondering if you’d be willing to help us spread the word or maybe even might be interested yourself or know somebody who may be interested. Basically, we are looking for Americans from across the country whose strong belief in the constitution sometimes requires them to live interesting lives.

    This is the national casting call for the project. Feel free to post it or email anywhere you want. If you have any questions, or ideas on how best to find people to feature, I would love to talk to you. We plan on being as discrete, respectful and sensitive to privacy concerns as possible at this early stage. But we’re looking for some great and true Americans with passionate beliefs and interesting ways of life that could help us show a different way of life that is often underrepresented or skewed by the media.

    ——————————

    CALLING ALL PATRIOTS….

    Santa Monica-based Firecracker Films is casting an important new documentary series for a major cable channel that will chronicle the lives of people who love America as its Founders intended and live like it.

    Do you or a family member belong to a militia? Believe strongly in the second amendment and/or your right to self-preservation? Live in interesting or unique circumstances because of those beliefs? We want to talk to you about your way of life.

    If you are interested, think you might be a fit or have any questions, please contact us by emailing bornfreedoc@gmail.com as soon as possible. And if you know someone who fits the above description, please pass this message on to them.

    There will be compensation for those stories that are selected to be filmed for the pilot. All information shared will be kept confidential.

    Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide!

    • Reis Kash says:

      Jeff – Not to sound paranoid, but your solicitation could be used by fed provocateurs seining for really strong 2d Amendment supporters. I know this because I am a retired fed law enforcement officer who has infiltrated subversive activities. My own experiences in 37 years law enforcement convince me (1) government has become infinitely corrupt, and (2) only an armed citizenry stands between us and a government which hates our institutions, mores, traditions, and laws. So – if you are a provocateur – here’s your answer. If not, then I respect your interest in portraying legally armed citizens in a truthful, even friendly, light.

  29. Dale Brady says:

    Make a mental evaluation parts of a gun background checks on handgun purchase and for a concealed carry permit.

  30. Reis Kash says:

    The reference to a militia in the 2d Amendment has an historical basis: the grand-parents and great-grand parents of the American patriots who fought for and wrote the Constitution had been militia members who had battled King Charles I (who had tried to limit parliament and the militia system), and King James II who was forced to abdicate for the same behaviors. Charles, you will recall, was beheaded. Our Colonial ancestors equated liberty with the ability to resist tyranny through an armed citizenry – hence the reference to a militia. Insane gun grabbers have tried to insist only members of the army or the national guard or a formal militia may keep and bear arms, but that – like most of their statements are lies.

  31. Mark Alderson says:

    According to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the recent terror bombings in Boston require a new interpretation of the Constitution to give the government greater power to protect citizens.
    The government is not enforcing the laws they already have. They are not taking the guns away from the bad guys now, even though they know who they are. They have records on every one of them, if they didn’t they would pass a background check anyway. This is from an objective analysis of the data. Obama says it is just common sense to destroy the second amendment “common sense”—-COMMON BUT WRONG!!!!

    • Reis R. Kash says:

      Obama is not interested in gun control which logically would consist of controlling guns in the hands of criminals. He is interested in two things: control of firearms in the hands of free citizens and control of free citizens. Obama is a racist fascist and a threat to all American citizens. I sincerely believe he is a Muslim (he has said so many times himself) and that he intends the destruction of the United States as a Constitutional Republic.

  33. eric tormis says:

    Gun control infringes on a person’s constitutional right to keep and bear arms enshrined in the 2nd Amendment. The provision is unambiguous: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” I agree with Justice Scalia in DC v. Heller: “The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State.” The right to keep and bear arms is an individual not a collective right. To my recollection, when martial law was declared in the Philippines, one of the first executive orders issued by the dictator Pres. Marcos was to ban all weapons and firearms and the imposition of death penalty for illegal possession of firearms by the citizenry.

  34. James Brady says:

    We all know the 2nd amendment and what its says and means. arguing the “semantics ” of it is just (il)legal 3 card Monte. We as gun owners have been on the defensive for to long. They cannot take what we will not give. It is time to get back that what has been Unconstitutionally stolen from us. section 1 of the 14th amendment clearly defines that states cannot make or enforce any law that that abridges the privileges or immunities of the citizens of the United States of America. “The right to to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”. This is an immunity of the people to keep the government from disarming US, their bosses. Working to have state gun laws overturned as Unconstitutional as prescribed in ART 1 of the 14th Amendment should be the focus, not “keeping what we have”. Any public servant that has taken an oath to uphold the constitution and cannot or will not do so by limiting the or removing the “unalienable rights” of this great country need to step down or be removed (legally) as an oath breaker.

    And yes, I am aware of the Irony of my name.

  37. Jacob says:

    I also have a site that is for our 2ND Rights. I am starting my own business for AR15 and AR10 80% Lowers. Please share this mission to as many as you can brother. Help this Vet out in this mission. God Bless! AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

  38. Church says:

    They understand “shall not be infringed”, it’s just they don’t care.

  39. Dave Howse says:

    First time of ever done this, but I felt the need to. Bought a Mossberg 12 gauge a short time ago. 1st time I ever excersized my 2nd amendment right. It felt great walking out of Academy Sports and Outdoors with it. And i sleep better at night knowing its ready to go when i need it. I fully support the 2nd amendment!

    • Congrats Dave!! Thanks for sharing your testimony and more importantly for exercising your 2nd Amendment rights!! Next step is take someone who doesn’t shoot or know much about guns shooting and share with them the experience in a safe manner and do that several times and we will never loose our rights!

      • Dave Howse says:

        Thanks for the chance to blog about something i feel so strongly about. I ve already started to talk to my son about it and when he is of age morally and mentaly, I’ll get him his first gun. In so far as I believe, these 3 rules should always be followed: 1. Always treat a weapon as if it’s loaded. 2. Never handle a weapon if you have been drinking. 3. Never handle a weapon if you’re angry. These were taught to me growing up, when i was in the army, and i adhere to them to this day. It just seems simple to me, I guess. Thanks for this site!!

  40. T says:

    This is an awesome blog full of good content. I am also trying to educate people on the 2nd amendment with my site
    http://www.gutsgunsglory.com

  41. Joey says:

    Winston,

    First of all thank you for your service time and defending this great country. I, for one, don’t feel there is enough appreciation given to those who served in the military. It takes a great deal of courage to do what you did.

    Second, I love the blog and find it as a great resource for 2nd Amendment advocation as well as just general firearms information. You provide a positive presence on the internet for pro gun owners and I just want to say keep up the excellent work.

    I will be adding you to my resources page on my website to provide my readers with a great website to check out!

  42. Dave Howse says:

    I have a question for anyone who can answer. Please forgive my lack of knowlege in this area but does anyone know of any plans that the state of Oklahoma may have towards trying to either, 1. sieze any and all firearms from the general public, or 2. generating tighter regulations and restrictions concerning the purchase of firearms? I hear rumors of this kind of thing happening elsewhere. I cant speak as to the validity of what I hear( probably just scuttlebutt, dont know) but Im nevertheless concerned.

  43. steven says:

    I just started a petition to deport Piers Morgan on the White House petitions site, We the People. Will you sign it? http://wh.gov/lRQRk

  44. Matt says:

    Great site. First time here and always glad to find friends of the 2nd amendment. Here in California we have a constant fight on our hands, but lately it seems our entire county has quickly growing pockets of law makers looking to destroy the Constitution and take our guns.

  45. shootersplus says:

    Hey Winston, just found your blog and I really enjoyed reading some of the articles. Will subscribe and read more when I have time. Thanks for your service also. I own gun store in Mississippi and was hoping you might could add us to your firearm parts & manufacture links. Our store is Shooters Plus and the website is http://www.shootersplus.com Thanks and keep up the great work.

  46. don weber says:

    Lots of talk about “not being infringed” at all, but ignoring the context for a necessary “militia”. And a “regulated” one.

    A homeowner with a 14 round magazine is no militia member, and even if so, should be subject to some regulation for the public safety, see Sandy Hook.

    • Thanks for Stopping by my blog, but clearly you just don’t get it!
      The “Founders” saw the “Militia” differently than how you are describing it. We aren’t describing the National Guard here……they would be part of the Government.
      The best regulation for Public safety would be to NOT legislate GUN FREE zones like schools.
      In case you haven’t looked lately there are plenty of regulations & restrictions on firearms and guns already NONE of which would have prevented Sandy Hook.
      “A Militia are in fact the people themselves and include all men capable of bearing arms”……not going to list the Founder who made that statement because maybe you need to go back and do the research yourself.
      Ohh and by the way very FEW guns/pistols have a 14 round magazine they either have a 13 or 15 round magazine so you are “clueless” in several areas and obviously not familiar with firearms, but thanks for stopping by anyway!
