Welcome, the preamble to the U.S. Constitution states
"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and on posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America."
...which if you think on it, the U.S. Constitution is the only guarantee granted by the federal government and even that is subject to change now a days.
However, Last time I checked there wasn't a federal officer or governmental official standing guard at my home, nor follows me around like a bodyguard. Which is why the frame workers of the union recognized the need for individual citizens in order to provide for their own common defense the need to amend that constitution and on December 15th, 1791 ratified the 2nd Amendment of the constitution insuring your right to keep and bear arms, which shall not be infringed.
I would like to welcome you to my site and extend a premature congratulations for taking the first steps of becoming a more responsible gun owner. During this course you'll learn how to lawfully carry and more importantly how to safely carry, it's bad enough getting assaulted by someone. It's even worse assaulting and injuring yourself or loved ones due to unsafe handling of a firearm. You'll show proficiency with handling and firing a handgun through both classroom discussion, practical application exercises and also live fire qualification.
For those of you who participate welcome to the family,
Sincerely, John Z. Gaby
Remember, Safety first....safety always...especially when handling your firearms!
