Crap historians often relay the same boring and trite tales: great men, particular dates and life changing battles.

There are deeper folds within the trite tales, such as the history of pharmacopeia, the evil works and historical lessons of empires, the wrong views and institutional lies of religions, states and ideologies – and ultimately, the technology of extermination, often meaning the arts in the destruction of human life.

There exist three different historical methods within the arts of physical extermination, or legal state murder: torture, imprisonment – and firearms, or the technology of quick and brutal weaponry.

The firearm is one such artifact from our long and terrible history in the destruction of life. Torture works for any sadist, and the State has the monopoly on imprisonment, but the firearm is open to both the State and non-state historical actors.

Empires love firearms for the embrace of war and ideologies, while tyrannical states stockpile weapons in order to murder their enemies and destroy their own consciences. Then there are the regular humans who need them for both fighting against their own tyrants and for defending themselves from criminals. The firearm is however, somewhat different from world history’s earlier weapons.

The long list of ancient warfare has included the chariot, the horse, the elephant, the dog, the catapult, the supply wagons, the fireball, the burning oil caskets, the castle, the fortress, the ship, the dungeon, the siege machine, the pike, the spear, the crossbow, the arrow, the poisoned dart, the club, the moral law, the discipline, the courage, the spy, the battle organization, the battlefield dynamic, the shield, the battle armor, the paint, the gong, the trumpet, the bell, the fire smoke, the poisoned water, the difficult terrain, the cannon, the banner, the mace, the dagger and the sword.

The true firearm was only a modern invention. The gun, rifle, or hand cannon, with gunpowder and shot, represented a deadly gift from East Asia, China and Japan, and then grew in detail during the European Renaissance of the fourteenth-century, or the late 1300s.

The firearm was more of a thinner type of cannon, which shot hard objects through the combination of extreme heat and force. Both an infantryman and cavalryman could carry those weapons on their hips or saddles, and then hold them in their hands for combat.

The firearm’s goal was not just to exterminate life, or to cause grievous bodily wounds, but also to mutilate and maim, which often forced enemy soldiers to exit the combat fields. The firearm has been the great leveler of life destruction. The guerrilla can fight the state assassin. The revolutionary can fight the tyrants’ thugs. While hunting for food in the wild, the firearm has created an easier task for both killing animals, eating and surviving.

During the long historical reign of the sword, spear and pike, the soldier, and for many years previous, had to learn well and regularly practice such weapons. But with the firearm, a few days of instruction in the assembly disassembly of the weapon, the safety protocols, the cleaning of the different parts, and the practice of shooting and sighting in, could make a capable soldier.

There have been some firearms that have not only equalized the art of killing between unequal combatants, but they have also changed world history and culture.

Particular weapons were thus able to transform the battlefield through facilitating the victory of one violent force over another one. A certain group of those firearms were either more efficient in killing-wounding operations, or more accurate on the field. Others were lighter for carry and often facile for quick shooting. A few of those same weapons even had stronger durability during critical reload-release-shot cycles.

All game changing, revolutionary firearms have transformed world mechanical sciences and the arts of killing for the greater humanity.

We first travel backwards to the Tang Dynasty of China, around a thousand, five hundred years ago, with the invention of gunpowder for hand cannons. This great invention is still necessary for the firing of any gun or rifle. The ignited heat force of the primer blasts the gunpowder, (now inside of modern ammunition casings), pushing the shot-bullet out of the receiver-breech, through the barrel-bore, and towards its target.

The Matchlock Rifle was the first evolutionary cannon held by individual soldiers. They used them as smoking, volley fires on the enemy, (1400-1500s). Although Europeans produced such hand cannons, and especially the Spanish and Portuguese naval empires, the Japanese samurai would also use such weapons to great effects during contentious infantry, cavalry and chariot battles.

In the mid 1500s, it was not just the Protestant Reform that hit Germany. German armorers or gunsmiths had perfected the art of Rifling, where they cut grooves into the bores of barrels in order to achieve a smoother, more accurate shot. The basic problem was the black gunpowder filth that gummed up the interior bore, and so the art of gun cleaning also emerged.

During that same historical period, another German gunsmith had developed a smaller hand cannon, but instead of using a matchlock, which took a lot of time to load, reload and shoot, this weapon now used a Wheel Lock. They were also smaller than the matchlocks. In fact, they became the first mini-cannons or pistols. Gentlemen across Europe wanted such weapons, not just for military field combat, but also for duels – and even assassination.

Just in time for the English Civil War, (the 1640s), French gunsmiths had invented the great Flintlock Rifle, which was the final adjustment to the whole gun lock system. There was no match wick, no wheel to push, just a hammer that ignited the flint, and in turn ignited the gunpowder and ball. The shot was quicker, but those weapons were terribly inaccurate.

By the beginning of the 18th century, the 1700s, every European army was using such guns. These weapons had the names of the le mousquet, or musket, avec la baïonette, or bayonet. European armies would line up on a plane field, shoot volleys, and when the shot gave out, walk towards the enemy, called bayonet charges. European military tactics would never remain the same.

Eventually, even these guns and tactics also went out of style with better technology, but gentleman preferred the smaller versions, as the most excellent dueling pistols. Dueling continued well into the early years of 1900s. A true gentleman had his box set of two flintlock dueling pistols, with balls, powder pouches and muzzle rods, or barrel jammers.

It wasn’t until the early part of the 1800s, the decade of the 1820s actually, with the invention and common use of the Percussion Cap for firing muzzle loaded rounds near the breech, which had finally made the flintlocks obsolete. Soldiers could shoot to kill or maim in the rain – and duelers too.

A British gunsmith amazingly designed a pistol with a movable round revolver, holding four to six bullets. This weapon became The Colt Revolver of 1835. Military officers could easily load the cartridges through the holes of the revolver. It was a single shot with a hammer, which then ignited the primers of the bullets.

The shooter simply cocked the hammer, shot the round, and then the next round of the revolver was chambered. After the revolver was empty, the pistol man had to remove the casings. It was this gun that helped the created the magical and deadly Wild West in America.

The British armorers also produced the first accurate rifle, which would transform the American Civil War. The American Civil War, (1860-65), began with the old battlefield army lines facing each other, and ended with modern trench warfare of steel, blood and attrition.

This breakthrough weapon was the 1853 Enfield Smoothbore Rifle. The Smoothbore was still a muzzle loader, so the soldier had to squash the bullet and powder cartridge down with the rod – but the final shot was deadlier. The casualties on both sides of the conflict showed the effects.

After the American Civil War, American armorers had built, ‘The Gun that Won the West,’ or the 1873 Winchester Repeating Lever Action Carbine. This lighter, repeating rifle possessed a tube magazine with up to ten rounds loaded. With every lever push down, the magazine loaded another round into the chamber for firing. A good shooter could knock off around ten shots within a few seconds. Cowboys, braves, outlaws, lawmen, frontiersmen, farmers and miners, all possessed these indispensable guns.

We again return to our German armorer masters. So by the end of the 19th century, Mauser perfected the bolt-action rifle with sights for combat. This deadly accurate weapon allowed a trained shooter to insert a bullet into the chamber, and then close the bolt-action, and with just a tight squeeze of the trigger, the energy pushed the hammer to the bullet – and the rest was history. This weapon birthed the glorious sniper shooter.

During this same historical epoch, German gunsmiths also constructed the first semi-automatic rifles, all of which used an inserted magazine of rounds that fit directly under the chamber. Simply racking the bolt-action back, chambered the next round.

We end our historical story, with the Russian version of the semi-automatic and automatic rifle, developed after World War II, The Kalashnikov AK-47 Rifle. This battlefield rifle using German WW II 7.62×39 ammunition, and with a particular gas cylinder, heats up greatly during the firing process. Some desperate fighters have even caused flames to shoot out from the bore.

Yet, this masterpiece of destruction remains functional in whatever weather, or in whatever combat situation. It can shoot rounds effortlessly even if not cleaned in months. Due to its amazing livability, armies, paramilitaries and guerrillas have used this rifle as the go-to weapon of choice. It has even entered the cultural iconography of revolutionary combat, found on insignias and photos of guerrillas across the globe, and on country flags in Africa.

Human combatants have used their firearms to kill lots of people through the annals of world history. Such is the nasty story of the Human Condition under Civilization. This system of suffering and misery will never change.

Conflict also created culture, and the firearm, or the gun, represents a human invention, which has not only revolutionized the art of killing other life forms – but it has also changed our world culture, through both science and art.

Humanity has created great religious temples, yet who actually built them, and then who owned the property to use them – and had permission to live inside of them? Human systems have manufactured endless supplies of pharmacopeia, but who controls the markets to sell and regulate them – while who have been the ignorant victims of their scams and abuse?

Armorers have fabricated stronger and efficient weapons for physical extermination – and all states, governments and authorities now stockpile them. Yet, who often faced the other side of such weapons – with no weapons to shoot back?

Always remember this melancholic, historical truth.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu, ancient Chinese intellectual, 544-496 BCE

Sun Tzu once again wrote the truth. The warrior has to truly understand his or her enemies – and his or her own weaknesses.

This method also applies a full understanding of the enemy’s total world views, reading their articles and books, and especially, and most importantly, getting inside their minds.

This method fully understands their tactics, and so we will stay ready for their coming affronts. The most important questions revolve around: why do they hate us so much, and why do they want to exterminate us physically? Our enemies have operated a continual war against us.

We can look at their social class backgrounds. They represent mostly high socio-economic elites, and they tend to work in the fields of state media propaganda, government-union bureaucracies, state mandatory education, software corporations, and corporate entertainment media. Note where they live, such as urban enclaves in high-priced sections of town with gated communities, or doormen, elevator men, or armed security.

Smart observers will analyze their cultural formations, which often represent university-college trained ideologies. We could even scrutinize their cultural tastes, such as preferring to dine out in restaurants rather than cook their own meals, frequenting certain ‘hipster’ hangouts, such as expensive bars, clubs with lots of synthetic drug use, and attending gigs of certain genres of music.

These observations relate to intensively doing our research. We will not only know our enemies, we will even be able to think like them.

That first part is not hard to do. But knowing thyself is a lot harder to perform. The reasons are that we must face ourselves with total and complete honesty. We have to look at ourselves from a distance, as if some casual onlookers just spotted us at a remote position, and then we can critique our faults. We ought to know our weaknesses, and like other social-cultural groups in the United States, we do have glaring weaknesses.

Before pointing out America’s gun culture weaknesses, we first need to understand the political practices of hegemony, national popular movements, organic intellectuals, historical blocs, war of position, war of maneuver, and optimism of the will.

These political practices come from the writings of the Italian Communist intellectual, Antonio Gramsci, 1891-1937 AD. The Italian Fascists murdered the guy through criminal neglect in prison, but his political methods eventually transformed the Italian Communist Party into the most powerful Communist Party outside of the Warsaw Pact after WWII.

I would like to thank my Neo-Marxist tenured professors within the Amerikan university education system for teaching me these occult arts in manipulating political power. Many Americans wonder why Amerikan universities are such Left-wing madhouses. Administrator, six figure salary bureaucrats now run these scam stations, and they are more corrupt than most union boss officials. Most concernedly, our political enemies, inclusive of Amerikan university administrators, have been using these political tactics against us.

Gramsci took his political ideas from the combat tactics of WW I in Europe, with its mass mobilizations of drafted armies, trench warfare and technology efficiency in destroying human life. Gramsci applied such military tactics to the furtive arts of political alliances and to the political engagement of total defeat and no surrender.

Hegemony is simply the art of maintaining strong political alliances, often containing contradictory ideologies, transformed into a powerful force of action. Gramsci understood that hegemonic political action has the potential to block state hegemonic alliances, and even overthrow them. The Fasciste movement in 1920s Italy did just this.

American gun owners are a diverse group, such as hunters that like to eat fresh meat, sports shooters, self-defense trainers, gun store employees, military veterans, ex-cops, small business owners that run businesses in rough neighborhoods, trailer living people that like to shoot metal in the deserts.

We also have lots of other different people within our cultural salad, inclusive of lots of women, gays and lesbians, Muslim Americans, Anarchists, bikers, Jewish Americans, Atheists, Evangelical Christians, African-Americans, Latino-Americans, tattoo-piercing artists, sex workers and artist musicians. Yet, our political enemies often portray us as a fringe group of politically reactionary, overweight, older white men with genetically attached baseball caps and a bad wardrobe style.

National popular movements are political hegemonic movements that successfully become integrated within the national culture. Some good historical-ideological examples, within American political history, have represented: Jacksonian Democracy, Manifest Destiny, The Cause of the Southland-Dixieland, Abolitionism, The Gospel of Wealth, The Temperance-Prohibition Movement, Federalism, Constitutional Law, Environmentalism, Public School Education, The American Economic Dream, Racialism-Eugenics, The Black Liberation Struggle, Populism, The Big Stick Policy, The Labor Movement, Second Wave Feminism, Multiculturalism and Progressivism.

American gun culture holds profound and deep roots within American culture and history – and it will always stay that way. Our strong cultural power inside of the United States means that our political enemies are desperately trying to dislodge us from our privileged cultural position. Even with such a privileged cultural position, Gramsci learned from the aftermath of WW I that a strong cultural-political hegemonic alliance can dislodge and defeat the strongest national-cultural affinities. Like the human condition, culture changes and morphs into absurd newer creations.

Historical blocs are the different national popular movements that make up hegemonic political alliances. They are important because, in Gramsci’s own words, they are organic, meaning they spring from the cultural roots of the country. The political leaders are true citizens that represent the nation. Successful hegemonic alliances must have organic intellectuals as their public voices. American gun culture is definitely American. Our political-enemies however prefer to live in a more sophisticated culture, such as Europe and Australia.

The strategy for historical blocs is to transform themselves into national popular movements. Next, they must form powerful hegemonic blocs or counter-hegemonic blocs of political alliances in order to completely seize political power – and ultimately destroy their political enemies.

The first strategy is the War of Position, where the political movement uses deep political tactics against its ideological enemies, such as entrapments, faking mobilizations, incendiary language, incessant political agitation, continual propaganda outlay, and ultimately, incitement to violence.

All of these political tactics work in that they eventually weaken the will of the enemy to respond adequately, since the political opposition has to continually defend its positions, representing the War of Attrition. Eventually the beaten down opposition must either fortify itself, close off its gaps, and slowly decline and fall for final liquidation, or it must surrender gradually to the political onslaught, and ultimately become the tribute paying slaves of their new masters.

Gramsci referred to this end game for political victory, which is always violent, as the War of Maneuver. All successful hegemonic blocs must first utilize the War of Position, and then when achieving some cultural power in the nation, move into the War of Maneuver.

Ultimately, Gramsci encapsulated his most famous phrase, Pessimism of the Spirit; optimism of the Will. Gramsci insinuated through this statement that the Communist or Radical inside of the War of Position must reject any spiritual or religious morality.

Instead, the United Left has to replace such weak sentiments with a continual and untiring political struggle, or political warfare, against the Enemy. In fin, the revolutionaries have to seize political power in order to physically annihilate the Enemy. Modern history has shown the way in successfully using the Gramscian political process.

America’s Gun Culture is now facing such a War of Position – and our political enemies have learned the same Gramscian political tactics from their own Neo-Marxist tenured professors that they studied under. The Neo-Marxist tenured cowards have taught in the Amerikan university system for over a generation. Hopefully, we can now see where both our weaknesses and strengths lie.

As gun owners we must avoid contributing our writings to hard right-wing blogs that spout non-stop bigotry, often against the corporate media’s new hate targets: Muslims, and we should stop supporting pro-war/pro-US Military articles, which yell for more violence, revenge killings, bombings, genocide and mass murder.

While those right-wing political blogs will often attack the mainstream corporate media, they always echo chamber their 1984 Goldsteins of the Year, such as ‘Radical Islam.’ We don’t particularly like the outrageous fulminations coming from the ‘hoplophobes,’ so why do we collaborate with the rants of Islamophobes, homophobes or negrophobes?

Just because those political blogs often feature pro-gun articles does not mean they are our political allies. These hard right-wing blogs often belong to other hegemonic blocs. When we contribute to their rants and bile, we fall into our political enemies entrapment strategies.

The corporate mainstream media will once again picture us as ignorant, white racist, right-wing kooks. And always remember after the Sandy Hook Mythology Movement – many of those same hard right-wingers joined with their supposed progressive political enemies calling for gun restrictions.

We possess guns because we believe in the natural right to self-defense for all of humanity – including for our political enemies. We reject cowardice and stand upon the code of honor. We will never surrender to tyranny and we value our liberty.

This does not mean that we find guns sexy or even beautiful. Guns, like all weapons, are tools for extermination. We only use weapons as a last resort against any agitated wild animal, criminal attacker, or tyrannical invasion force, ready to physically harm us, our family, or our good friends. All of humanity has the right to defend themselves from violent attacks.

Most Americans are with us on this point, including many young urban hipsters, with pseudo-Leftist politics, who don’t know us, and who probably don’t any guns. Let us celebrate our diversity of differing political ideologies and backgrounds – yet united in our eternal virtues of courage, honor and gentleness.

The gun confiscators’ preferred method in dislodging America’s gun culture from the core of American cultural identity is through extreme, cowardly name calling. They commonly refer to us as terrorists, gun nuts and enablers of mass murder, and some have even called for outright, mass gun confiscation and snitching to the cops when we open carry. This is another war of position tactic.

We will simply reply to their calumny that they are gross hypocrites and lazy cowards: while they hate guns for us, they love guns for the cops and the military, which often target the poor, and the people who can’t fight back around the world. They rant for gun confiscations, yet they want the regular police officers and the enlisted military soldiers to bear the burdens of such a national confiscation, or having to detain open carriers.

Our most formidable weapons, which will carry out the defeat of their War of Position, is our knowledge of history. Educated Americans know about the Revolutionary War for Independence, the Civil War-War Between the States, John Brown’s Raid, WW I & II, and the Wild West Frontier. Guns entered all of those conflicts.

Tyrannical Laws never deserve the respect of a free people. Courage and Honor never comply, and never will we just follow orders. We didn’t come into this Earth to die as slaves.

Thomas Paine, the American radical wrote in his political pamphlet, The Crisis No. 1, (1776), These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph…”

We stand upon this truth. We remain within our hallowed ground, well inside American national culture. Whatever War of Positions the Enemy thrusts against us, we shall not surrender.

We respect honor, they do not. They are cowards, we are not. Never forget this.

American elites partyAmerikan imperial systemCorporate media elite vs. gun ownersgun-control-media-biasuniversity-administratorsAmerican tenured university facultysylvester_stallone hates guns - except in his filmsdemand-a-plan-gun-control-hollywood-celebrities

Sun Tzu, the Daoist intellectual of sixth-century BCE China, stated that all warfare bases itself on deception. He was correct during that period of world history – and this truth still reigns over contemporary times.

How long must us gun owners have to bear attacks against our honor every time a disturbed young man on psychotropic meds shoots people in a gun free zone? Yet immediately after each shooting, the same public figures jump into the media warpath against us. They never attack the psycho quacks that first administered the legal dope. And it is always the same cabal of gun owner haters every time.

They might lie and say that they hate the guns, but they are dishonest and dishonorable. They don’t seem to hate the fact that Amerikan police forces carry guns, where they regularly murder citizens inside of the Empire – with full legal immunities.

They don’t mind when their political heroes send the US military across the globe, and then  legally murder ‘the unpeople’ who dare to defend their nations against imperial invasions. So why do these ‘anti-gunners’ specifically target us, and why have they declared a most torrid media war against us?

One hundred years ago in the United States, there was no ‘gun control movement.’ Gun control actually meant the proper hand control of both pistols and rifles. Gun control codes did happen however. They implied state and municipal governments prohibiting certain dangerous classes or people in owning weapons.

The first gun control decrees in the United States sprang from the system of white supremacy, which meant making gun ownership very difficult for the severely oppressed Black population. Lynch mob terror could not work effectively with a heavily armed African-American population standing around.

There was a very good reason that the Black Panthers openly walked with their loaded rifles during the 1960s. For them, it meant literal survival against both state and federal police terror – always ready to exterminate them. And they were right. How many Panthers ended their short lives murdered through sudden cop attacks or through the inhumane Amerikan legal injustice system?

The first modern city-wide gun control effort started in that fetid swamp of political corruption – New York City. The time was the 1890s, and the mayor, Tommy Sullivan, a local mobster-politico, from the Tammany Hall Democratic hack machine, pushed in the first gun control law which is still on the books today, called the Sullivan Law.

This legislation runs totally against the Second amendment of the US Constitution. Yet, the federal government has given that city complete legal privileges in snubbing its nose against the said constitution. Since the Sullivan Law, NYC City Hall has continued to implement spurious laws and outrageous decrees. Meanwhile, the City’s Police Department holds the monopoly on gun ownership. This is the current goal of the US government in Washington D.C.

Our enemies represent the US federal government, mostly found in the Democratic Party Machine, but there exist many other traitors on the other side, well inside the Republican Party Machine.

Remember the state mythology event of Sandy Hook. Some notable Republicans and Conservatives began to publicly call for limitations on the right to own guns. Those political opportunists will easily call for guns confiscations again. Copying the federal crooks, state and municipal governments will also call for gun confiscations – if they feel that a good amount of the regional population loses its legitimate consent of the governing elites. The politicians have never been, nor are they now – our friends.

Our most formidable enemies fester in the corporate TV media, from FOX to MSNBC, from CNN to CBS. Why does the corporate TV media hate American gun owners?

The people who work and hold good jobs in news entertainment are not journalists. They are state propagandists for the Amerikan Empire. They love cops and military officers, but they hate regular Americans who carry weapons. Those ignorant, yet college educated, cabals enjoy denigrating the average American.

The pseudo-sophisticated media types live and multiply in urban enclaves with doormen, elevator men, or with armed security that patrol their apartment complexes. Anyone who wants to defend his or herself is simply a paranoid hick sitting on a porch in a rural backwater.

The next round of hypocrites represents the Industry, meaning the Hollywood Entertainment Industry. Those sanctimonious elites enjoy making movies with lots of bad gun fights and gun murders – but that doesn’t stop them from encouraging gun confiscations. Most Hollywood Industry producers, writers, directors and talent stars seem to represent the public cheerleaders against American gun owners.

The Amerikan University Scam system is another menacing opponent against gun owners. Most university administrators and tenured cowardly professors, who work like dogs under the administrators, regularly lambast and denigrate American gun owners.

Almost all American colleges and universities are gun free zones. Yet, all campus police forces publicly carry high-powered, semi-automatic pistols! I have never heard a cowardly professor openly complain about university police carrying firearms.

Corrupt politicians, corporate media hacks, Hollywood bosses, university admins and tenured professor cowards all share one aspect in common. They all worship and love the State. The State is their cultural collaborator, their legal protector when under scrutiny, and their backup, economic support, when the economy falls apart.

The political-economic American elites who consider themselves ‘education experts’ also want gun confiscations. It bothers them that a low-class, American loser still has the right to buy a rifle. All American elites hold genuine concerns about the coming Civil War.

These snobs and elite mobs also hate gun owners because they mostly live in urban communities that do not suffer from the blights of economic poverty. They don’t have to worry about muggings once they walk out their front doors.

Political-economic elites think that they uphold the cultural standards of ‘sophistication.’ It bothers them that America is not like London and Paris. Gun ownership is definitely not on their agenda. Spacious art gallery openings, classical music orchestras, jazz concertos, visiting eclectic restaurants, wine bars, and public lectures on geo-politics are cool.

Plinking with friends in the desert is not cool. According to them, America’s gun owners are rural, pathetic, ignorant, right-wing duped, trailer trash, ‘Philistines.’ Those cretins are an embarrassment to their urbane European friends.

Our enemies do not possess guns, nor do they know how to use them – but they are very powerful opponents because they possess the power of cultural capital. Cultural capital signifies a good amount of cultural influence over the general population.

Our elites control the outlay of media images, common corporate vocabulary, and they hold a monopoly on intellectual, expert opinions within the United States. Yes, every time another public shooting takes place, those haters will immediately go on the offensive against gun owners. They also have lots of capital, (money), to fund their schemes. Most ominously, they have the Amerikan Empire, (the US Government), in their corner – all of which includes both political parties.

Eventually, the US government will institute gun confiscations, and they have already hinted at such tactics, often using the example of Australia. The registering of weapons, which is the first stage of confiscations, has already commenced in the dictatorial, Liberal ruled states of New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland and California.

How do we fight such threatening adversaries meanwhile? As these dissemblers write their long and winded anti-gun owner columns in the corporate and Liberal-Leftist blogs, so we must expose their hypocrisy in the fact that these groups love the cops and military who have complete rights in not only carrying guns – but using them on all enemies foreign and domestic.

We have our own blogs on the Internet, so we can ignore their epidemics on the corporate media websites. The more writing we compose on the sacred rights to self-defense, from all and any physical attacks, the more honorable and intelligent readers will support our struggle. Our state-venerating antagonists would like nothing better than to see the US government physically annihilate all gun owners.

They have already declared an unending war against us since the 1970s. They move, react and proliferate under the state’s methods of gradualism, or step by step repressive decrees. First, gun registries, next, gun confiscations, and ultimately, lockdowns, imprisonment, and even physical extermination. Always remember this appalling historical truth.

Gun ammunition is not cheap, but the non-practice of self-defense encourages terrible consequences within the foreseeable future.

If we own guns, we all must do some live firing gun practice. At home snap cap use, or dummy round practice, is important too. Yet, live fire does not hide our flaws when shooting, and we all have them.

Live fire also exposes our deficiencies in gun safety, the handling of firearms and the proper cleaning of weapons. Even when our weapons jam, live fire will put our knowledge of tap, rack, reload, and if that doesn’t work: safety, lock, release, into action. The only way we can zero in our rifle sights for better shooting accuracy is with live firing.

An important truth to live firing is that it is better to go alone, then join a group of unknown shooters, even if the live fire outing was the idea of a friend of a friend. Doing live fire with annoying ‘gun dudes,’ and a lot of them are out there, can make a fun day of shooting into an experience of pure suffering.

You are still shooting live rounds – which can destroy human life within seconds. Do not risk your personal safety, nor your personal freedom, by visiting a live fire range with other unknown shooters. Even good friendships can strain when going out for a day of live fire shooting.

One time in the distant past, I remember going out live fire shooting in the desert with a bunch of guys who I did not know beforehand. While it was my turn to fire, a good shooter commented to me on my lack of hitting the target, and he showed me some good gun handling pointers, which made my accuracy a lot better.

Live fire shooting at the range is necessary for becoming a better marksman. It is expensive, loud and messy, but all shooters must practice at the range. The well-practiced range shooter will also know how to deal with gun jams, misfires, using good ammunition versus the cheap crap loads, and how to parlay cover tactics when firing shots at the enemy. Live firing is also the ideal spot to test out newly purchased rifles and pistols.

Live firing is basically a solo practice in order to improve accuracy and gun handling. The range should not become a social event however, nor should any alcohol or drug use enter into the activities.

Live fire shooting must adhere to the strictest practices within gun safety protocols.

Before driving to the range, the shooter needs to purchase lots of ammunition for the weapons. Regular ammunition loads are sufficient. Shooters should avoid unknown ammunition or bullets recently reloaded from untrusted shooters. Reloaded rounds work well when offered from proven experts who use reloading procedures, or when purchased from experienced gunsmiths.

The shooter must possess both ear plugs and ear headphones. Another time I went shooting, I remember having to cover my ears every time this guy shot his 308. I was only wearing cheap ear plugs.

The other required safety equipment includes safety glasses, and if it is a very sunny day, sun glasses. All shooters must wear hats, (baseball caps are good), for when the bullet brass or steel kicks back to the head – which it always does.

When at the shooting bays, shooters always point their weapons’ barrels down range, or when not shooting, the weapon barrels lie either facing up or down on the rifle racks. Remember, all guns are loaded.

The most important safety procedure at the range is never firing until every person at the bay says it is OK. Before live firing, each shooter has to make sure that the others are also shooting their weapons. Once a shooter signals to the other range people that he needs to post, check or remove a target, then all the other shooters must stop shooting and remove their weapons facing down range.

Shooters should also remember that firing hundreds of rounds of ammunition can lead to overheating of the barrel and the chamber bore. It is important to rest one rifle or pistol after shooting many rounds, and then practice with other weapons. Most shooters bring at least the majority of their weapons to the range in order to practice as much as possible.

Marksmen can also practice ducking for cover and then shooting, moving and shooting, and shooting from the hip, kneeling, or standing, or even lying in the prone shooter position. All of these tactics make for better gun handling. Regular practice and good effort work. The most important part is actually getting to the place for gun shooting. Whether it is target practice, the indoor pistol range, or just plinking in the desert destroying old televisions, practicing increases gun skill.

After live fire shooting, the gun practitioners need to take a shower, wash their clothes and clean their firearms. One of the negatives of live firing is the amount of lead residues on the clothes, body and hair, after all of the gunpowder found inside the rounds.

Some shooters like to clean their weapons while on the range right after shooting. I do not like this method because disassembly and reassembly of weapons can turn into a messy assignment. What if that small pin of my rifle falls into the sand or dust? What if I try to remove a gun piece and there is still a round in the chamber, or I had forgotten to remove the magazine? I do not want to risk any negligent discharges at the gun range.

Live fire range shooting represents the finality of practice transformed into the role of action. Every time we live fire our weapons, they become more familiar and more personal to our hands, bodies and minds. Eventually, our weapons will become extensions of our arms, hand, eyes – and our minds.
