Sensitive Saturday

As the title suggests, it's Saturday and by coincidence, it's July 2nd. The city where I live is holding its July 4th (Independence Day) celebration today instead of on the proper day. It has something to do with paying workers overtime on Sunday to set-up. I've heard that it's a $75K savings to the city treasury. While I'd normally say what the f&%k?, part of me agrees. AND we can celebrate independence twice.  Any excuse for a second party is a great excuse.

So in keeping with the fact that it is Saturday and there will be fireworks at the park, two blocks away, and there will be a family/friends gathering at the mansion.  If you're showing up bring something.

Ammocentric Eccentric?

If we lived further out in the country there would be more home-made pyrotechnics as I explored my ammocentric proclivities publicly. However, being in the city and because there will be local off duty city and county police types here at the house, I will restrain myself.  However I've found that off-duty police officers are often even more ammocentric than I am, and  that's saying quite a bit.  

Today is Ammo-Pride
Day. #ammoloverlives
matter
When I explore my ammocentric nature, I feel more unburdened, as if the social yoke has been lifted from my shoulders - as if I'm really being ME. And let me share that taking an (insert California-legal firearm here) to the desert with a lot of ammo can help me shed stress in ways that most progs would call 'indecent'.  Targets are annihilated.

I wonder if ammocentric people will become a protected class in America? It's every bit as legit as black guns matter. 

Shooting is how ammocentric people express themselves and pursue happiness. Progs want people to be recognized and to feel special about pursuing happiness. When Planned Parenthood wants to slaughter the unborn at a pace that would make an Aztec priest blush, it's all chalked up to the pursuit of happiness.

Historical Discrimination for the Ammocentric!

The ammocentric clearly weren't recognized as a protected class by the British Government on April 19, 1775 when a skirmish line of minutemen stood up to the vanguard of about 700 British Army soldiers who had begun their march before dawn to seize weapons owned lawfully by Americans at Concord, Massachusetts.

The force, under LTC Francis Smith fired the first shots just as the sun was rising at Lexington Green. The militia were outnumbered, fell back, and the  British Army regulars proceeded on to Concord, where they broke apart into companies to search for arms and ammunition. At the North Bridge in Concord, approximately 400 militiamen engaged 100 regulars from three companies of the King's troops at about 11:00 am, resulting in casualties on both sides. The outnumbered regulars fell back from the bridge and rejoined the main body of British forces in Concord.

The British forces began their return march to Boston after completing their search for military supplies, and more militiamen continued to arrive from neighboring towns.  All of those patriots were shamelessly ammocentric.

Gunfire erupted again between the two sides and continued throughout the day as the regulars marched back towards Boston. Upon returning to Lexington, Lt. Col. Smith's expedition was rescued by reinforcements as they made a tactical withdrawal under heavy fire to Boston.

Progs would have you forget that. They would much rather that you honor communist community agitators like Barack or Al Sharpton today (and every day).

    1. Not really a Rambo wanna-be. More like just an old, Rambo.

    2. On this day in 1776, the Continental Congress declared America’s independence! Did you know that this vote actually occurred on July 2, not July 4?

      “That these United Colonies are,” congressional delegates resolved, “and, of right, ought to be, Free and Independent States; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown . . . .”

      There would be no more attempts to reconcile with Great Britain.

      John Adams was elated, and he thought that July 2 would be celebrated as a memorable day in American history. He wrote Abigail: “The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America.” It didn’t quite work out that way.

    3. I actually did know that little factoid, LL. Today most people don't even know what the hell we're celebrating.

      I'm hoping that in November we can have another "independence day" from the filthy libtards who have been holding us captive.

      Have a wonderful weekend, LL, and keep the ammo dry.

  2. ...and this is why you drink iced tea....just sayin'.......;) Well, enjoy your independence.
    Having had a couple of days fun shooting in your land, I can see how easy it can become a de-stresser. So much fun.

    1. As fun as shooting smokeless powder weapons is, I like shooting black powder rifles and muskets even more. You don't shoot as much, but it's simply more fun to do. Likewise I prefer to hunt with more primitive firearms and archery if I'm going to hunt because it gives the animal more of an even playing field...even though it's still stacked against them.

  3. Count me in, and it didn't work too well in 1775, and I'm thinking it won't work too well this time around either!

  4. I'm ammosexual, and proud of it. Pretty sure the wife is Rambosexual, which is why I need to keep her away from Stallone.
