Long before September the 11th, part of America’s innocence was shattered on October 16, 1991 in the central Texas town of Killeen. At lunchtime a man drove his pickup truck through a window at a local cafeteria called Luby’s. Twenty four people were murdered in cold blood by a deranged man who ended his life after the 15 minute rampage. If the laws of the country supported Second Amendment rights, a patron named Suzanna Hupp might have changed history and stopped the deaths of the patron’s of Luby’s cafeteria. In her book, “From Luby’s to the Legislature,” Suzanna Hupp defends the right for all people to carry a weapon. She so believed in her cause she became a Representative in Texas. The book details her life and her mission to change government.
I had the chance this past fall to meet Dr. Hupp and hear her powerful story. She was the keynote speaker at the GeorgiaCarry.Org convention. She commands your attention and if you get a chance, you should read her book, “From Luby’s to the Legislature.” It’s a short read, and you will quickly find that you do not want to put the book down even for a minute.

There are no embarrassing questions, only embarrassing answers …

It has been said that there are no embarrassing questions, only embarrassing answers. That may be true. But if that’s the case, why do we always blush when we ask the questions?
Warning: This article may be difficult reading for the faint of heart. Be sure to eat some chocolate before you begin. It won’t make you any less embarrassed, but don’t we all need a little more chocolate in our lives? Read more
As I was reading my e-mails today, I happened across one from the NRA with a “vote now” window, asking me if I would be patronizing Starbucks more because of the anti-gun boycott of said coffee beanery.
What? Starbucks was being boycotted? This I had to see for myself. After a bit of research, I came across this page on Free Republic, which is brief but makes for an interesting read. The readers’ comments, however, had me laughing out loud. Read more
It’s a hip bag that can sit on your hip and carries your concealed firearm in a holster Velcroed to an interior pocket. And while on the subject of pockets and gadgets, the list goes on and on. Features include a back-of-the-flap, zippered mesh pocket, two elastic securing loops for a chem-light or small flashlight, a removable lengthwise zipper pouch, an interior key ring keeper, pen channels, hook and loop name-tag strip, and a zippered exterior compartment. Oh, there’s also a small water bottle pocket and a cell phone pocket … all in a compact 10.5″ x 7 ” x 4″ package. I’m telling you, women of the outdoor world, this bag sits up — on a waterproof Hawk-tex bottom — and takes notice. Adjust the padded shoulder strap to fit, and if you do set it down for a minute, pick it up quickly by the sure-grip, rubberized handle on top. Other features include a removable acrylic business card window on the back and waterproof interior lining.
And, this is one purse that my husband probably won’t mind picking up and carrying (OK, moving stealthily) across the room for me. After all, it is a tactical handbag, aka “Blackhawk Battle Bag.” http://blackhawk.com/
