Moscow? Caracas? Snowstorm? Hurricane?

 No, this was the bread aisle yesterday at Wal Mart in Chattanooga. 

The weather was good, with a relatively short-lived rainstorm sweeping through a little later in the day.

What can we learn from this?

In Congress, July 4,1776

 From my friend John Richardson:

This is a document that I think every American should read at least once a year. As I said when I first started posting in the first year of this blog, it explains why we are citizens and not subjects.


The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, READ MORE HERE.

Pistol or Prozac?

Tucked away in the Blue Ridge of North Georgia, just below the Tennessee state line is McCaysville, GA. There are lots of things to do, ride the train, explore mountain towns and countryside, hike, fish, go rafting; and you should make a visit to McCaysville Drug and Gun a top priority.

I got to speak with Randy Richardson, and we discussed the short supply of firearms and ammunition. He said lever actions are almost non-existent. On the other hand, Turkish shotguns have been available, and his customers have been satisfied with them. 
I thought he had a surprisingly good stock of handguns for today's market. There was not a large supply of ammo on the shelves though.

Richardson practicing rules 2 & 3 of gun safety.

Richardson and I discussed the fact that he could sell long guns across state lines, but if he sells a handgun to someone from outside Georgia, he must ship the handgun to a FFL dealer in the buyer's state of residence.

They are a real drug store, so they can actually dispense Prozac to patients with proper prescriptions.

Just go there when you get a chance....

Masks for thee, but not for me

 We have heard of this in California having seen images of Governor Newsome attending a dinner while banning such for little people. We have seen New York Governor Cuomo going about unmasked while requiring masking for the little people. 

Now, despite an order* by the mayors, I have seen it in Bradley County, Tennessee. When I went into the courthouse for business with one of the county offices. the deputy at the door (nicely) ordered me to mask up. 

When I got in line in the hallway, everyone in line was masked. 

......But, when I got to the door of the office I was to do business with, having maintained 'proper' social distancing along the way, I saw that the employees in that office were unmasked. One lady had her mask on, but it was under her chin.

The Good Old Days

 From my friend David Cole:

With the election less than a week away, I think it is time for a final reminder of the importance of this decision regarding gun freedom. No matter how you personally feel about Donald Trump, there is no other choice if preserving the 2nd Amendment is important to you. There is no third way.

If you vote third party, or simply stay home (kind of the same thing), you are saying that there are other things more important to you than the 2nd Amendment.
