Our grandfathers took a stand against Nazism during World War II.  Some fought in Europe side by side with our British and Soviet Allies.  Others served in the Pacific.

Most have passed away now or are very elderly.

I grew up during the 1950s and saw the pictures taken by our brave troops when they liberated the Death Camps where the Nazis murdered six million Jews.  They also murdered millions of non-Jews  turning Europe in to a  a hell hole from the bombed out streets of London to the frozen ruins of Stalingrad.

I proudly fly the American Flag, a good rendition of The Star Spangled Banner sends shivers up and down my spine.

I never ever thought I would see the day when Nazis, neo or otherwise would think it appropriate to spit on the American flag and spit on the sacrifices our parents and grandparents made to end the scourge of Nazism.

From Jews For The Preservation of Firearms Ownership:

Official Statement:

“If anything should motivate you to learn about your precious American right to keep and bear arms and to use your freedom to arm yourself, the current dramatic rise in anti-Semitism is it. If you don’t understand that, shame on you, and you deserve what you get. History is repeating itself. Wake up children. Get armed, get trained, don’t become a victim. Yes, our position is more people properly armed. What is the anti-Semite’s position?”


“Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, is America’s most aggressive civil-rights organization, dedicated to destroying the notion of ‘gun control’ as any kind of credible public-policy position. So-called ‘gun control’ does not control guns and doesn’t control criminal behavior. What it does do is disarm the innocent, leaving them helpless in the face of criminals, tyrannical governments and genocide. History repeatedly proves this fact. Founded in 1989 by Aaron Zelman as a response to the Holocaust, JPFO speaks with the moral authority and tenacious commitment of survivors of persecution, and knows that surrendering your personal and family safety to government protection courts disaster. You don’t have to be Jewish to fight by our side, you just have to love liberty.”

I’m Building My First AR From Parts Project

I’ve been saying I was going to do this for well over a year now and I just never got around to doing it.

I’ve swapped uppers, field stripped and cleaned out the bolt carrier.  I’ve watched others do it.  Have been told I could do it and shouldn’t be intimidated as the AR is meant to be easy to assemble and repair.

This last weekend I swapped a Benchmade Barrage for for a Spike’s Tactical “Zombie” receiver and lower parts kit.

Several of the guys we know gave me fist bumps and told me to “Go for it.”  I was also told that I could get help if I got hung up or needed tools we don’t have.

I’m at the point of installing the trigger group and have basically hit a decision point.  Go stock or after market.  I’m thinking: First build serendipitous receiver and parts kit, go stock, get the learning curve out of the way.

I can build a real custom after I’ve built a couple of garden variety American Rifles…  That is what AR stands for? Right.

I’m going light weight, flat top, a stock from our box of parts.

Watched a couple of YouTube videos, opted to follow the directions from PewPew Tactical.

I’m going to need a buffer tube and pistol grip.

I’ll post a picture at that point.

The Most Dangerous Place

From Concealed Carry:

By Rick Sapp

What’s the most dangerous moment of our day? Home, late at night, when lights are off and everyone, including the cocker spaniel, is tucked into bed? The office, where an angry ex-coworker could burst inside? The gun-free-zone coffee shop, where a predator expects easy pickings?

I think the most dangerous moment is our time in a parking lot. It’s an impersonal and unpleasant place. There, we struggle with shopping bags, grocery carts, an irritable spouse and obstinate children. We send a text or place a call. We remember things forgotten. Is it worth returning? … But ah, the ice cream is melting.

Inside the car, we buckle seat belts, adjust mirrors, turn on the a/c and radio, and make sure we can back out of the parking spot without crushing some oblivious shoppers on their cell phones. The last thing we’re considering is personal safety. And that’s too bad, because parking lots are to criminals like a field of tulips to Tiny Tim. A thug knows we’re preoccupied; that we’re thinking about everything except the fact that he’s searching for a quick path to our car with the least possible exposure.

Simple Thuggery

A criminal knows you’re vulnerable in a parking lot, that you’re easy there. “Parking Lots” should be renamed “Victim Zones” — purchase a ticket and hang out here to be robbed, mugged or worse. Hundreds of incidents are recorded online:

March 29, 2017, Florence, Ohio: A 19-year-old woman was hospitalized following an assault and robbery in Walmart’s parking lot. While her husband was already inside the store, she was knocked unconscious, losing a tooth, and her jaw was broken in two places. She only remembered someone tugging at her purse before being crunched. “She’s horrifically traumatized,” the mother-in-law said. When his wife didn’t immediately come inside, the husband went to look for her. He found her on the pavement near the car. The woman’s jaw is now wired shut until it heals. The thief got away with bank cards, cell phones and cash. The ordeal left the young couple terrified. (Note to oblivious: Why would you ever abandon your family in a parking lot?)

June 22, 2017, Uniondale, Long Island, New York: A 78-year-old woman stepped out of her car in the parking lot of the Town House Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing when a man confronted her, demanding money. He grabbed her pocketbook and shoved her to the ground; she was not injured. She was lucky. (Note to reader: You could be 78 one day. Think about it.)

Op-Ed: Don’t believe ‘no one wants to get rid of the Second Amendment’

From American Military News:

August 4, 2017

A New York-based artist named Joshua Smith is proposing a “Gun Violence Amendment” to the U.S. Constitution that would – in theory – repeal the Second Amendment and the use of firearms in the United States.

In addition to repealing the Second Amendment, this amendment seeks to prohibit the “manufacturing, transportation or importation in or into any State, Territory, or possession of the United States for delivery or use therein of pump-action, semi-automatic or automatic firearms.”

Not content with the current efforts of the gun control lobby, Smith decided to take actions into his own hands.

“Conservative pundits are quick to cite what I think of as a straw man — that there’s some kind of leftist boogeyman coming to take away the Second Amendment, and to my knowledge, there never has actually been one,” Smith told Art News. “So I like the idea of inhabiting that space.”

Smith argues that thousands of gun deaths are the result from the “simple access” to these types of firearms.

But unfortunately for Smith, this amendment is not based in reality. Any reality.
