    Thumbs up Great Advice from LEO!

    After a couple of recent break-ins, our local Sheriff was quoted in the newspaper this morning as saying, "Everyone should have a firearm in their home".
    Glad we have someone with this mindset serving in our area!

    The only thing missing from that statement was "and the training to use it"
    Just because you buy a guitar, doesn't make you a musician.

    You are correct! The Sheriff's Dept actually offers free firearms training classes to ladies.

    That's a great idea, especially if you are an eligible deputy...

    Its refreshing to read about these stories, 'cause all we usually read about is the anti- gun Chiefs/sheriffs/mayors, etc, etc.



    'Because that's all the ammunition we had.' Polk Co. Fla. Sheriff Grady Judd
    When asked why they shot a BG so many times.

    You may find me one day dead in a ditch somewhere. But by God, you'll find me in a pile of
    brass." - Trooper M. Padgett

    "Since police started keeping statistics, we now know that assault weapons are/were used in an underwhelming 0.026 of 1% of crimes in New Jersey. This means that my officers are more likely to confront an escaped tiger from the local zoo than to confront an assault rifle in the hands of a drug-crazed killer on the streets."
    • Deputy Chief Joseph Constance:
    Trenton, New Jersey Police Department,
    speaking before a Senate Committee, 1993

    On the Brady Bill, Waiting periods and other licensing proposals
    "Get a gun. I don't think law enforcement can always protect (residents)."
    Sheriff Jake Miller, Brevard County, Florida,
    Florida Today,
    Asked what could be done about the proliferation of guns on the streets, replied "We're supposed to have the toughest law of all the states. It doesn't seem to be working too well."
    Lt. James Moran: New York City Police Department

    Comments on Concealed-Carry Reform Laws
    "[I'm] eating a lot of crow on this issue. It isn't something I necessarily like to do, but I am doing it on this."
    Harris County [Texas] District Attorney John Holmes

    Comments on Concealed-Carry Reform Laws

    "I lobbied against the law in 1993 and 1995 because I thought it would lead to wholesale armed conflict. That hasn't happened. All the horror stories I thought would come to pass didn't happen. No bogeyman. I think it's worked out well, and that says good things about the citizens who have permits. I'm a convert."
    Glenn White: President of the Dallas Police Association,
    Dallas Morning News, December 23, 1997
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy." -- Ernest Benn
