I am glad I have found this site.
I have always had a profound respect for firearms, which is a direct reflection of my upbringing.
I have been reading and searching around the site for a month or so and thought I would finally introduce myself.
I enjoy learning something every day here and look forward to more great information.
Something I thought many you would find interesting is this email I received from school todayI find it somewhat ridiculous that all they are doing is providing an informational seminar.Submitted by: John Ronnau, Director, School of Social Work

Subject: Understanding Gang Violence - Prevention and Intervention: A
The School of Social Work invites members of the campus community to a
daylong conference on gangs and gang activity in central Florida on
March 7 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Alumni Center.
In the last five years, Orlando has experienced an 86 percent increase
in street gang activity. The Orange County Sheriff's Office reports that today
there are more than 50 different street gangs operating in the
Orange County area.
The goal of the conference is to educate the community about the
devastating impact of gangs and to assist professionals who struggle to
find ways to help youth who are gang members or at risk of becoming gang
The conference will feature
- Luis Rodriguez as the keynote speaker; Mr. Rodriguez is a community
activist, noted expert on gang prevention and intervention, and
prize-winning author of "Always Running: La Vida Loca, Gang Days in
L.A.," a 1993 memoir of gang life that earned a Carl Sandburg Literary
Award and Chicago Sun-Times Book Award and was designated a New York
Times Notable Book
- An expert panel with representatives from the Orange County
Sheriff's Office, Florida Hospital, Liberty Middle School, and the Ninth
Judicial Circuit State Attorney's Office and Public Defender's Office
- In-depth workshops with representatives from law enforcement and
school social work and a panel with former gang members
Social workers and mental health counselors may earn up to 5 CEUs for
participating in the conference. Registration is $75 for community
members and $10 for students.
