    Very nice post.

    I like the last lines. To me the old saying of "I do not love the sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, I only love that which they defend" whether it be family liberty or self, is most important.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
