A Progressive (of a sort) In Freedomland

I never thought of my son Brendan as a Progressive (aka: liberal, leftist, socialist, commie douchebag) and indeed he is not one of them. Yet, I must say he sure has been progressive since moving to Arkansas - that is at least as moving along and making progress in his life goes.

He moved down there without a job prospect and since getting there he has: caught a nice catfish, rented/leased his own first apartment, bought his own furniture, changed his license from NY to AR CDL Class A, purchased his first pistol a Glock 43, found a job within 3 weeks, passed the drug test for that job and started working, may have found a better paying job less than a week after the other (Pepsi has made a contingent offer to him), and so on. Yes, he is progressing nicely but certainly not like a whining anti-American political Progressive.

In fact, today, he progressed one step further by taking the liberty to exercise his right to keep and bear arms. He took and successfully completed the course for the Arkansas Concealed Handgun Carry License. Yes, I know, there absolutely should be no requirement for such a license but since there is one he stepped up and did what had to be done to come one step closer to obtaining that license.

Brendan's target and certificate from the A CHCL class.
As far as the CHCL course went, I think he may need to use a tad less finger on the trigger and use a smoother pull but what would I know! Anyhow, he has got it down fairly well and passed the course. I am quite the happy dad and proud to see he is keeping alive and well the tradition of being a liberty exercising and rights loving armed American like me.

All the best,
Glenn B
