If It's Not One Disease From China...

...it seems to be another one that threatens us and the rest of the world. Luckily for us, Customs & Border Protection (not Patrol, as many say) was on the job and they seized the "cat food" in the form of a package of small and apparently dried out birds. More at the source.

"I carry a gun every day" - Me Two (and I do mean two)

"I carry a gun every day" is a pretty good read about why folks carry guns and in general what we can expect by doing so.

I think though that LETTER FROM AN ANGRY READER published in 1981 is a better one, a much better one. It's also certainly more intense in it's message and intensity is what is needed to get through to many folks.

Why not read them both and see what you think.

As far as I can recall, I saw "I carry a gun every day" for the first time today. It was written or at least published in 2015; do not know how I missed it before now. Then again, maybe I've seen it before and just do not remember it, it certainly has not made as lasting an impression on me as the letter in Esquire.

The other one, LETTER FROM AN ANGRY READER, well: I read that one when it first came out in 1981 when I was a young and somewhat cavalier Border Patrol Agent. It is (fact or fiction and I believe it is fact) one of the best articles on carrying firearms, heck on any subject, that I have ever read. That one is still relevant today as it was when written about four decades ago, maybe even more relevant today. Been too long since I shared it on my blog so figured I'd present a link to it along with the link to the newer article.

As for myself, I've done "some serious considering about who has the right to do what to whom" and that's why I go armed  everywhere I can do so legally and yes - I carry at least two guns.

All the best,
