There are about 1310 law abiding people carrying handguns in every county in the United States on average.


LEARN MORE ABOUT THE NRA

Junior NRA Memberships

With the NRA Junior Membership, you'll receive a membership card embossed with your name, an NRA patch and a coupon book, which has savings on such things as air guns, safety glasses and other related products, in addition to the Insights magazine.

Firearm insurance, accident insurance, life insurance, a shooter's cap and all the benefits of a regular NRA Membership are not included in a Junior NRA Membership.

If we don't involve our children in our efforts to protect and defend freedom in the United States of America, the Progressive Liberal Democrats, Hollywood Elitists and the American history revisionist crowd will eventually will this battle.  Freedom, liberty and justice must prevail.  We must involve our children in this battle.  I don't have to tell you what we're in for if you don't.

Get your child or grandchild a Junior NRA Membership today.  Don't wait another day!!!!!

Go take the test.



Gun Safety Pact

This is a printable agreement for both you and your parents to sign.  This pact can save lives, so please pass it on to your friends.

Read, print and sign the gun safety pact with your parents.



The Golden Rule Of Gun Safety:

The Golden Rule of Gun Safety is to ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, point the barrel of the gun in a safe direction.  If this rule is ALWAYS followed, there will never be another gun accident.



 

If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have them.

For All The Ladies Of The Canteen. Especially Esmeralda, her sister and Kidlett


Therapy




When the sun goes down and it gets dark
I go about on my nightly lark
Easily checking the house's every room
For my eyes see clearly in the shadowy gloom
Determining who and what with a single smell
Counting heads and knowing All is Well

When it gets warmer and darker later
My Humans travel from the refrigerator
To the Den and The Big Long Chair
Sometimes alone. Sometimes in pairs
To unwind and talk about this and that
It's one of the Best Times to be a Cat

Leaping up from the floor to cushions and laps
Fingertips swirling my fur makes for the best of naps
Or I can opt to climb way up The Big Chair's spine
My claws gently brushing The Pretty One's hair so fine
Then slink out slowly, or sometimes bolder
My head upon my paws atop The Big One's shoulder

Later, when My Humans go up the stairs
I'll wait awhile on the cushions of The Big Chair
Then go up and see them under shiny silky covers
Sometimes as friends. Sometimes as lovers
To wait for a spot between them narrow and deep
Where I can slide close. Close my eyes and sleep

Spend last evening in the er. Still have stone; they say it looks small enough to pass. They may or may not be right as the entire composition of my stones don't completely show on CAT scan. On dilaudid and water.

Just 1 mg so far, up from 1/2. Does seem to do the trick better as long as I put something in my stomach first.

Taz, strangely, the edema in my legs has completely vanished this morning, even though I've been inert for a few days. Only thing was I didn't take all my meds last night; didn't take Calan, Urocit-k (K citrate), calcium & Nexium.
