Equality will never be experienced in the United States unless we first come together in our communities. Only through united communities can rebuild a united Republic. A united Republic will result in the citizens of that Republic being equal. Marcus Monroe and Michael Marshall discuss what is needed to bring together the Black Community and how Black and White Americans can quit seeing the divide and start to see each other as Americans. Enshrining the principle that ALL PEOPLE ARE CREATED EQUAL.
“If they’re smart, they better not knock on my door!” he says.
In 2018, I’m not sure why this is even a matter of debate. Especially with the highway of knowledge called the internet. FMJs shouldn’t be carried; even in states (I’m only aware of New Jersey but there could be others) where hollow point use isn’t allowed. Finding that better option will take time on your part, but in the end, you will have yourself a round that is more efficient at stopping an attacker than your bulk-bought ball ammo.
The Ruger SR1911 retails at $1,019 however local gun stores have it available for right around $750. Its features include; a five-inch bushingless bull-barrel, full-length guide rod, rubber grips, (2) eight-round magazines, skeleton trigger and hammer, a 70’s series (without a firing pin block) 5.75-pound trigger and target sights with the rear being adjustable. Other features include a flat mainspring housing, extended beavertail, and a non-textured front strap on the grip. All things considered, the Ruger SR1911 10mm is a loaded package that’s put together with typical Ruger Firearms quality.
It was late December, 1971, and tensions in the city were high. While everyone was used to a certain level of crime being perpetrated throughout the 5 boroughs, one rash of incidents had many on edge. For several weeks, two men were out targeting diners, coffee shops, and just about any other place where a full cash drawer could be found. Upon entering an establishment, without saying a word, one would shoot the person behind the counter and the other would empty the till. This one night, they selected their next target…and this is what happened next.
The Walther CCP was created to provide a softer shooting experience by using a gas-delayed blow-back system (soft-coil system) to drastically reduce felt recoil. This system also enables Walther to install a light recoil spring which allows the pistol’s slide to be easily manipulated when charging a round. The Walther CCP was marketed to female shooters, senior citizens and others who lack the needed hand strength to manually work the upper slide. It was a brilliant idea.
This past Saturday I had the opportunity to participate in an Urban Rifle training course offered by Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department up here in Maine. I’ve known Scott for a little while, with him being the Sheriff of the County I live in, and had previously interviewed him for Liberty First Foundation.
There is never a good moment to discuss the Second Amendment and gun control after a shooting incident, especially when that crime has taken lives. Like all Americans, I mourn the loss of innocents to the actions of a mad man on a mission of evil. It is because of that loss, and the utter loathing of acts of evil, that I will never utter the name of the sick individual who committed this crime in Jacksonville, FL, in any commentary or reporting. Even in 2018, there is such a thing as infamy and it deserves no glorification.
Earlier this week, my State’s Governor made a truly unfortunate statement. You see Governor Bullock has been short-listed for a 2020 run at the Presidency, and as such has been getting more media attention. He was on CNN and was asked about banning semiautomatics, and he said he was for it. Politics aside, it hurts my heart that any leader of any state would resort to such short-sighted rhetoric under the false pretense of wanting to “protect” our children.
In the last 10 years, we have seen incredible increases in Americans receiving their concealed carry permits. These are people who understand that the safety and protection of themselves and their families fall on them. As many in the media demonize those who choose to carry a gun, it was recently reported that 17.25 million Americans have obtained their concealed carry permits. That large number doesn’t take into account that millions of Americans legally open carry a handgun which increases the overall number of people carrying a gun even further.
