Blackballed. Jerk. Miserable Cities. Good and Bad.

Tebow…

I like the guy. I like what he stands for and how he stands on it.

You don’t?

Maybe you should look at your life and see what you stand on!!

5 Ridiculous Alternatives to Guns for Self-Defense ScissorsFirearms have many purposes outside of self-defense, but some politicians can’t see past that single application. To justify new gun laws, they’re scrambling to come up with alternatives to firearms in self-defense situations.

Living Ready is all about “MacGyver” tools and techniques, but these alternatives are flat-out ridiculous. Take a look at these five examples of unfortunate thinking:

* Colorado State Senator: Ballpoint Pens Will Stop Guns
* Colorado State Representative: Whistling Will Do
* Another Colorado State Rep (what’s up with Colorado?): Judo, Buddy System
* Homeland Security: Scissors and Other Office Supplies
* Vice President Joe Biden: Fire Warning Shots from a Double-Barrel Shotgun

(OK, that last one was a firearm, but what about the argument that reloading is when a shooter is most vulnerable to attack? And what about the legal ramifications of a “warning shot?”)

Can you say JERK?

I knew you could…

Way back  in my younger days, while trying to get to work I managed to get stuck, as I was getting my shovel out, we had a about a foot of snow and it was still falling, a city snow plow came by and damn near hit my car and myself. He went around the corner, and got stuck himself…I in a fit of rage jumped up on the running boards and smacked his window twice. With the shovel I was holding, which was a real shovel, a shovel used for shoveling coal, no light weight aluminum or plastic job.

His eyes were wide and he just sat there staring at me..

I went back to digging my car out and the snow flew.

He never did get out or move.

I finally extricated myself and got to work…He was still sitting there..No cells back then…So he apparently never did call anybody..

 If you are a gun owner, it is likely that you already know the laws in your state because you had to jump through whatever hoops required in order to secure a firearm. But what do you know about gun laws the rest of the country? See which states are “gun-friendly” and learn which make it almost impossible to own a firearm HERE.

‘Non Compos Mentis’ on Guns

During the debate in Colorado about concealed carry on campus, Democrat state Rep. Joe Salazar explained why women don’t need guns for self-defense against would-be rapists: “It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at. And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop around at somebody.”

Hot Air’s Mary Katherine Ham retorted, “Well, after all, you might not get raped. In Salazar’s world, not only are women incapable of defending themselves against a physical threat, but they are incapable of even identifying a physical threat, and should therefore be deprived of the ability to try. Empowerment!”

Never fear, the University of Colorado posted some safety tips for avoiding rape, including “kick off your shoes if you have time and can’t run in them.” Failing that, “Tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating. Vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone.” They conclude, “Only you can decide which action is most appropriate.” Well, unless you decide carrying a firearm is appropriate. Call boxes, whistles and vomiting are peachy ideas, but a handgun would be far better. When seconds count, the police are just minutes away.

Another legislator, Democrat State Senator Jesse Ulaberri, contended that people don’t need guns for self-defense because that just leads to a “whole crossfire.” And besides, the people in Tucson “stood up to defend themselves … and they did it with ball point pens.”

These are the people who think they know what’s best for you.

Old Woman….

 Why I love old women….

SHE WALKED UP AND TIED HER OLD MULE TO THE HITCH RAIL. AS SHE STOOD THERE, BRUSHING SOME OF THE DUST FROM HER FACE AND CLOTHES, A YOUNG GUNSLINGER STEPPED OUT OF THE SALOON WITH A GUN IN EACH HAND.

THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER LOOKED AT THE OLD WOMAN AND LAUGHED, SAYING, “HEY OLD WOMAN, HAVE YOU EVER DANCED?”THE OLD WOMAN LOOKED UP AT THE GUNSLINGER AND SAID, “NO, I NEVER DID DANCE… NEVER REALLY WANTEDTO.”A CROWD HAD GATHERED AS THE GUNSLINGER GRINNED AND SAID, “WELL, YOU OLD BAG, YOU’RE GONNA DANCE NOW,” AND STARTED SHOOTING AT THE OLD WOMAN’S FEET.
THE OLD WOMAN PROSPECTOR – NOT WANTING TO GET HER TOE BLOWN OFF – STARTED HOPPING AROUND. EVERYBODY WAS LAUGHING.
WHEN HIS LAST BULLET HAD BEEN FIRED, THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER, STILL LAUGHING, HOLSTERED HIS GUNS AND TURNED AROUND TO GO BACK INTO THE SALOON.

THE OLD WOMAN TURNED TO HER PACK MULE, PULLED OUT A DOUBLE-BARRELED SHOTGUN, AND COCKED BOTH HAMMERS.

THE LOUD CLICKS CARRIED CLEARLY THROUGH THE DESERT AIR. THE CROWD STOPPED LAUGHING IMMEDIATELY.

THE YOUNG GUNSLINGER HEARD THE SOUNDS TOO, AND HE TURNED AROUND VERY SLOWLY. THE SILENCE WAS ALMOST DEAFENING.

THE CROWD WATCHED AS THE YOUNG GUNMAN STARED AT THE OLD WOMAN AND THE LARGE GAPING HOLES OF THOSE TWIN GUN BARRELS.

THE BARRELS OF THE SHOTGUN NEVER WAVERED IN THE OLD WOMAN’S HANDS, AS SHE QUIETLY SAID,

“SON, HAVE YOU EVER KISSED A MULE’S BUTT?”
THE GUNSLINGER SWALLOWED HARD AND SAID, “NO MAM… BUT… I’VE ALWAYS WANTED TO.”THERE ARE A FEW LESSONS FOR US ALL HERE:1 – NEVER BE ARROGANT.
2 – Don’t waste ammunition.
3 – Whiskey makes you think you’re smarter than you are.
4 – Always, always make sure you know who has the power.

5 – Don’t mess with old women; they didn’t get old by being
stupid…
