Every Blade of Grass (Sunday Sermonette)

Welcome to your Sunday Sermonette

...There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
"Should hostilities once break out between Japan and the United States, it is not enough that we take Guam and the Philippines, nor even Hawaii and San Francisco. To make victory certain, we would have to march into Washington and dictate the terms of peace in the White House. I wonder if our politicians, among whom armchair arguments about war are being glibly bandied about in the name of state politics, have confidence as to the final outcome and are prepared to make the necessary sacrifices." - Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto
Thus the gun culture in America is explained. The Second Amendment, guaranteeing the RIGHT of Americans to arm themselves has more to do with defending life and liberty than it does with hunting. It's position in the Bill of Rights indicates that it's not an afterthought, though the corrupt, elite, smug, nasty, lying mainstream media - which shills for the progressive movement would tell you otherwise.

War Planner posted this on his blog, and I've shamelessly lifted it for its use here. The inner city person in the video (below) sets forth his own frustration and concerns at talk of a race war that some black people have advocated against white people.

His first words explain that if blacks decide to rise up against other races, they will be "pig food". I ask myself, why black people would want to do that. We're all Americans. Aren't we? He suggests that inner city people don't have a culture of marksmanship, whereas even white girls are trained by their parents to drop ordnance on target. I have 4 daughters. They were trained to be lethal so I take his point. Anyway, he explains his reasoning on the video.



There aren't many brothers at the Oklahoma machine gun shoot-off...

The above accurately sets forth how I was trained as a young man, starting somewhere around age 6. It carried through and I'm a bit older now.

I have eight grandchildren, each of whom needs his own AR-15. I wonder if I can get a deal by buying quantity in Arizona?

California has tried to destroy weapons by making them less effective. No need to buy them here. Truth be told, you're better off buying arms and ammo from the Mexican drug cartels if you live in California. They have better gear, bargain basement prices, and don't require that you fill out paperwork or go through a two-week waiting period. They also have a much better selection than available in stores. They also have Claymore mines, hand grenades, belt-fed squad automatic weapons, grenade launchers and RPG-7's for the defense minded. Competition keeps the price down and they sell to the public. YOU KNOW THAT I'M KIDDING, right? The State of California says that it protects honest citizens from drug cartels - no cartel members here. And because having an unlicensed firearm in California is a crime, that will deter even the most ardent parolee at large.

Have a splendid weekend. Try to get out to the range because while speed is fine, accuracy is final. This ends your sermonette.

  1. No need for accuracy when you are firing at bad guys from 10 feet away: just swing the firearm in the general direction of the dirt bag, squeeze the trigger a couple of times, then check for results.

    Accuracy, schmackuracy. Leave accuracy for those in the Olympics.

    1. I know a female police officer (Firing a Colt 1911) dumped three magazines at a suspect from about 8 feet to possibly 20 and never hit him. I know a male police officer who had his ass kicked by a 15 year old Mexican girl.

      Better to practice than not to practice.

    2. Those Colt 1911 .45's are not all that accurate from more than ten feet away from the target. Maybe it has something to do with the way they sound like a can full of nickels when you shake them.

      Then again, they will fire in just about any conditions, and are probably the most durable, forgiving weapon out there.

    3. The 1911 has the virtue of having been around as a combat weapon for a very long time and they still make and sell a lot of that pattern. I prefer the Kimber over the Colt, but the design is the same.

  2. All my daughters have been trained on rifles, shotguns, pistols and revolvers.

    1. Good move! It's not just about familiarity and accuracy but confidence. My oldest did more pull-ups than any of the other men/women in her police academy class. She's a gymnast. She got out of the racket, married and has three boys to ride herd on.

    1. California's governor (called Governor Moonbeam for a reason), is infected with the same insanity as most of the California legislature and the sanctuary state is going to the dogs.

    1. We're all good here. The last transactions on my FFL before I shut it down (while still in Kali.) were an AR lower for each of our kids. However, I'm starting to get the itch to build something. So yeah, I'm in.

      I'm partial to Aero Precision, if for no other reason than they do everything in house, starting with molten aluminum. Am a little slim on $ just now, but that is fixin' to improve shortly.

      BTW, I still have those DVD's. We last exchanged emails on 03/07/2016.

    2. I am not familiar with Aero Precision. But I will check them out.

  5. I would just like to point out with pride that in my adopted home state of Idaho, gun licensing and registration, special taxation on guns and ammunition, and the confiscation of guns, except those actually used in the commission of felonies, are all unconstitutional (Idaho Constitution, Article I, Section 11). The sheriff's deputies who taught my concealed carry class informed us that Idaho has more guns per capita than any other state in the Union, including Texas. A rifle behind every sage bush!

  6. Buy a jig, and a router or a cheap mill, and knock out as may 80% lowers as you like with no federal involvement with minimal cost.

    1. Yes, that works. Getting the tolerances down (proper jig) is key.

    1. California is given to excesses that are silly -- and serious all at the same time.

  8. Sunday Sermonettes are the best!
    All my grandkids are shooters, and my son carries all the time. My daughter, after six years shoot'n in the Navy, is not interested in guns. She does have other skills that can make you not want to mess with her.

    1. I'm sure that she carries a cattle prod the same way that her mother does. Best not mess with her either...

  9. Another great post. Have a safe week!
