Is It Reasonable? Background Checks

We consistently hear the anti-gun lobby talk about reasonable restrictions. The issue here is that they don’t have the slightest clue as to how firearms work or what laws are already on the books. In order to have a discussion on what is or isn’t reasonable for any subject, subject matter experts (SME) are required. Without them being involved in the discussion, nothing reasonable can come out of said discussions.

Tom King Champion For Gun Rights

“There are 5 million gun owners in New York, but you have to vote for your gun rights,” said Tom King, President of New York State Rifle and Pistol Association and candidate for re-election to the National Rifle Association Board of Directors 2019. “You can’t vote with your union, you can’t vote with the party your mommy and daddy signed you up in 30 years ago, you have to vote for your gun rights, that’s the bottom line.”

Randy Couture and “Liberty”

The influence for the design of “Liberty” came from the Revolutionary War, the arguments and quarrels leading up to the war and the after math of the war. We wanted the size and shape of the rifle to embody that of the original musket. The original muskets used in the Revolutionary War weighed approximately 14 pounds and were about 42 inches long. “Liberty” weighs approximately 17 pounds and is a whopping 45 inches long. This rifle is truly custom and unique, from it’s one off aluminum butts-tock to the 20″ hand-guard, with a custom 26″ octagon bull barrel chambered in .338 Federal. We’ve topped this rifle off with a high end scope instead of a bayonet to allow for better accuracy at distances out to 500 yards.

Militia Understanding: The journey continues

Still one could make the argument that it was a different time back then, that things are more established and we have “official” government roles created which have made the need for a militia obsolete. But I really wonder, what actually happened to the idea of the militia? If in the late 1700s, every man was the militia, every man held the honor and responsibility that came from being the nation’s defenders. why didn’t that concept stand the test of time? What happened as our country moved from a frontier country to the forefront of civilization? If every man was the militia, why isn’t that still true for you or I?
