Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a time for reflection and renewal in the company of family and friends. This year I thought my faithful readers (Thanks Mom!) and first time visitors might enjoy something old and something new, something sacred and something, well, a little more profane……in other words, a little something for everyone in this, the annual Christmas compilation post.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

First, the sacred: Chaplain to the RKBA Blogosphere Anthony Martin helps us all focus on the Holy-Day through music:

In case you missed them, about a year ago The Welshman began a series of lengthy meditations on
the current State Of The Union.

They are now indexed in one location so readers can reflect on the prescience of his thoughts,some
of which resonate even today.

Tango Fox 1 Comma 2nd Amendment

Back in the prelapsarian days when Free Republic was an active vibrant website for Conservative thought and action, many vigorous 2nd Amendment debates were conducted amongst highly gifted Freepers.

Tango Fox contributed above and beyond the call of duty with his detailed analysis of the history and origin of the 2nd Amendment. In one of my early posts I archived his work in a text format,CLICK LINK HERE but as the Free Republic Archives slowly disappear down the memory hole, important work should be preserved in as many ways as possible.

He detailed the one comma 2nd Amendment with a rich tapestry of documentation and commentary.

So, today, please enjoy and save these screen shots from the Pleistocene days of the World Wide Web.

Tango Fox, you are missed and your work is not forgotten.

Good Trigger Discipline circa 1961

MattelGunHandle6

Seven year old Child Actor Bill Mumy put all the usual Hollywood ignorami to shame in this 1961 Mattel Commercial when he demonstrated excellent pistol handling and trigger discipline! Watch the Youtube video carefully. The little tyke fires the pistol and makes a conscious effort to keep his finger out of the trigger guard.

We discussed normal Hollyweird weapon proficiency in the Tom Selleck kerfuffle of 2011.

Nick Vujicic, Genuine Tough Guy

Would that Chuck Norris be so lucky to be as tough as this guy.

Even if you are a minority within a minority of a minority, you can take lessons from a guy who is literally in a class by himself.

As the venerable Colonel Jeff Cooper observed: “Humans use their minds to fight, weapons are just accessories.”

Every day of his life Nick Vujicic has used his mind to fight.

Never say never again!
