Gun safety this holiday season

Posted 11-26-2010 at 20:54 by Six Feet Under

I'd like to take a minute and remind everyone to be safe this holiday season.

On History.

Posted 11-26-2010 at 12:35 by Critias

I often get a funny look when I tell someone I'm studying history. The looks get funnier when I tell them I'm going to grad school for history.

My mom -- God bless her -- is particularly baffled by all this. She tries to look happy and interested, but deep down inside I can tell she's tilting her head a little to one side, like a puppy, and trying to figure out why I'm wasting my time.

I feel like a Phoenix rising from the powdered residue of my Tenifered G-19 slide...

A whittle about me...

I enjoyed blogging, especially linking 2nd Amendment stories to blogs.

Love to bludgeon leftards' cerebellums with my common-sense crowbar.

I work in healthcare and enjoy firearms...
