Decision Time

Job well done Supreme Court. In a 5–4 ruling they overturned the D.C. ban on gun ownership.  I just believe that each citizen has the right to make that choice for themselves.

Now, I wonder if that means DC will also lift the ban on Mace.  I simply ignore that one.  I am willing to pay a fine to carry my mace.  This from a city that had the 7th highest crime rate in the nation just two years ago.  Ridiculous.

    I say a gun in every room reduces the risk of being a crime stat

    Jenn’s Dad…what do you recommend for a “family” gun? Something we can all practice shooting?

  3. Jenn's Dad Bill says:

    The Family Gun. This of course will differ depending on the family. The most important thing is to be comfortable with the weapon and confident in your ability to hit what you are aiming for be it man, animal or target. Prior to going out to purchase a weapon, you should take a self inventory and determine if your makeup will allow you to take a life in the protection of your own, your love ones and or your property. Will you be able to leave a loaded gun in the house? They are of absolutely no value when empty. If you can not, then seek other means.

    Remember that regardless of caliber, from the small 22 to the large Clint Eastwoods “MAKE MY DAY” 44 Magnum these devises are made to kill. As it is with other skills we develop, proficiency with our handguns may be obtained through practice, practice, practice.

    If you have never had any exposure to shooting a handgun, I would suggest you research some gun club/shooting ranges in your area and see if they will provide instructions and allow you to try different calibers to see what fits your hand and what you may be comfortable with.

    Finally SAFETY SAFETY SAFETY—-It can not be stressed enough. To own a hand gun and not be proficient will only give a false sense of security.

    That is awesome advice Mr. Kerber. We own a “Family Gun” and we go out at least once a year to shoot it as a family. That way everyone knows what it is like and what it is capable of doing.

    P.S. For anyone who is wondering why Irma asked my father about Guns it is because he spent the majority of his adult career as Chief of Police (he has retired from law enforcement….at least for now).

    Mr. Kerber…Thank you. I will definitely contact nearby shooting ranges.
