    The War Began Today

    When my dad passed away in 2011 I inherited all the family history stuff my grandmother was so passionate about. I just stuffed the boxes under a desk in the basement and forgot about it. One day i decided to see what was there and found a book that had all the relatives listed. I was amazed and immensely proud to discover my kin imigrated to America in the 1700's from northern England/ southern Scotland and have participed in defending this country and its allies every since. Revolutionary war, 1812, Civil war, WW 1, WW 2, Korea, Vietnam.

    The straw that may have broken the camel's back.

    I too have had people try to convince me laws will cure the gun violance " problem" in the US, but i inform them that over the last 20 years on average 43,500 americans die in auto accidents per year.........thats 870,000 people over a 20 year span and everyone is okay with it because "it happens and you cant control other people" ....EXACTLY.......Then they just sit there looking at me as the moment they realize that number dwarfs the number of people killed in firearm related deaths in this country and they they just heard the toilet flush their position away 😇 it dosent change them but they never bring it up again when they are around me. The sad part is we as a society have become complacent, we see car crashes everyday on the news and we just ignore the numbers. Look at all the laws enacted, all the vehicle safety changes and infrastructure safety improvements and that average number didnt change over the last 20 years.........because humans are the variable that cant be counted on to obey the rules.

    Don't be an 'arrow stopper'.

    I agree with the article and have been telling my close friends & family we ARE heading to another civil war which will make the one in the 1800's look like a rival high school football game. The twist i see comming is this time around all our outside enemies are ready to jump in and attempt to end our way of life for good. They are already planting themselves in congress to weaken laws to allow help into this country......just as they are doing in Europe. It will be the crusades on a global scale. I am not a doomsday prepper but i see things everyday in person that show me that the number of people working to divide instead of unite is growing, not only at the national level but locally too.

    Words of advice from the "seasoned" members.

    My Dad always told me " even if you do not agree with what someone is saying, always listen because they may say something that makes sense" I've done that sinse i was a teen and every now and then i go hummm........okay that part makes sense.
  15. many years ago i was walking thu the local gun show and came across a table with three SKS rifles laid out still in the box wrapped with heavy brown paper covered in a black heavy grease. I looked all three over and picked the one with the best looking stock and payed $250.00 for it. got home and started cleaning it and discovered it was a unfired 1953 number matching Russian SKS. it also came with the folding bayonete installed, the cleaning kit & sight tool and Russian canvas sling. I love this rifle, its one of my favorites. Same show came back to town in the spring and i picked up a Chinese NHM 91 new for $180.00, love this one too.
