As a person of Scottish heritage, I am adamant that quite a few people today do not really understand how much we gained, or how much we stood to lose, in the last election. Freedom seeking people came to America. So, it was with my hearty Scots as they fled the detested Crown. By the same token, in the South we are accepting refugees from the People’s Republics North of the Mason Dixon line. There are many freedom loving people in Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey that have seen the socialist-Marxist creep into government and make life difficult through onerous taxation, regulation, and laws, making honest business practically impossible.

Our reporters heard many of the speakers at the recently concluded NRA Annual Meetings, and some were outstanding, in our opinion. The NRA has thoughtfully posted videos of many (if not all) of the speakers from the event, which you can find on the NRA News website.
I am a firm supporter of our troops. That includes returning veterans, wounded or not, and the troops deployed. I have given to, or worked with, many nonprofits.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Navy SEALs have fought and died on many battlefields across the globe. I have known a number of SEALs, worked with many, called some shipmate and even earned the recognition of being considered a friend by others.
You all know the big man on campus the M1 Garand, well this week we are going to play with the little kid on the block. The younger brother who gets left out of all the fun. However, be careful little brother can fight too. As we know, looks can be deceiving-as is the case of this little giant. Easy to shoot, carry and reload our next rifle is a bulldog, not a lot of bark, but a lot of bite.
You thought that last week’s cartridge was full-sized. Well welcome to the jungle folks—we got what it takes this week. Why wait until your enemy comes out from behind that concrete wall? Just shoot through it! Don’t let that armor plating get in the way of your job, just shoot through it! Have a big truck coming into the no bad-guy zone? Shut it down by obliterating the engine with one shot. Cars, trucks, boats, armored vehicles, planes, and buildings cannot stop this big bad boy, the famous .50 BMG!
If you hear the shot, it was not meant for you. If you run, you will only die tired. Reach out and touch someone. Ah sniper talk, guys from the high ground, I love it. Without this cartridge, the sniper story would be greatly diminished. From 1952, its design year, then 1954, when the U.S. military chose it as the rifle cartridge for their forces and up to the present it has been the cornerstone cartridge for the long-range warrior. That cartridge is the 7.62x51mm NATO or the civilian .308 Winchester.
