Common Sense Gun Control: Part (3) There Is No Great Sacrifice Than To Lay Down Your Life For Another To Live Freely

March 16, 2018




Good morning everyone, I hope you had a stellar week, and now you get to get out and enjoy the weekend !


As the debate over gun control continues to dominate the news, I am seeing a gradual rising of prices for semi-automatic, tactical rifles. In response to your increased interest, I have put together a selection of AK-47 rifles and pistols as well as a couple of our best selling tactical shotguns. My gut tells me, our political leaders are simply not interested in working on anything that doesn't include "Russian" meddling, so the likelihood of any significant change to our current gun laws, is slim to none. Nevertheless, every time action is threatened, prices seem to increase.


On a more upbeat note Browning continues their 2nd Amendment Rebate offer, which gets you 10% off the retail price of their products. If you are considering a Browning product, now is a GREAT time to buy.


I have continued the series on Common Sense Gun Control, and in part 3, 'There is no greater sacrifice than to lay down your life for another", I address the issues of response time, arming teachers and the failure of yet another government agency to protect us. I think you will find this article of interest and I hope it will encourage open conversations about these specific issues. As always, please let me know your thoughts.


Last weeks article concerning Social Media, created a firestorm of comments. I really underestimated just how many of you were concerned about the effects it is having on our society as a whole. Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with me and for talking to your kids about the issue. If more of us could find the courage to address uncomfortable issues with our friends and family, perhaps we can find a way out of this mess.


Have a GREAT weekend, please be safe, and love on your kids.....Marc

Common Sense Gun Control


Part 3: There is no greater sacrifice, than to lay down your life for another

Syndicated by: Montana News

By: Marc Kelley

During my career as an Emergency Department RN, I witnessed first hand, acts of incredible courage by what were called "common people". "Common", not in their actions, but in their belief, that all life is precious and each individual life has value.


I was raised to understand, there are people who, whether we know them or not, are entitled to respect, simply because of their willingness to act, when confronted with evil. Without regard for the dangers they faced, these heros stepped forward, without hesitation, without orders and without a second thought. While many people find themselves in dangerous situations, simply by happenstance, many others get up each and everyday, put on the uniform of law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics. These individuals, kiss their families goodbye and walk out to face whatever the day will bring.


I considered working with these individuals to be both an honor and a privilege because of their instincts to relieve the suffering of another human being. None of the people I speak about acted solely because they were paid to do so or took an oath to protect us. They act out of love and recognize they act because acting, was the right thing to do.


Over the weekend I spoke with a young woman who is a teacher in an outlying middle school here in Montana. The school is 20 miles from our city and the response time for law enforcement, greatly exceeds the time it takes for a deranged killer to slaughter innocent, unprotected children.


This woman spoke to me, with tears in her eyes, telling me about the ridicule she endures from some of her fellow teachers and administrators, because of her belief, teachers should be allowed to carry a firearm at school, in order to have a fighting chance, if confronted by deadly force. She spoke eloquently and fully comprehends the responsibility of carrying a firearm.


In great detail, she explained her understanding of exactly what is required for the approval process to actually get a Concealed Weapons Permit.


Yet, even when faced with all of the added responsibility, she believes in her heart, she herself would act, to protect her students. She also spoke of her understanding and respect for individuals who choose not to own firearms, based on their personal belief system. She is outspoken, unapologetic and steadfast in her belief, every law abiding individual has the right to defend themselves, as well as the right to access to firearms, if that is their choice.


Even though I had just met this young woman, I found myself in the rare position to play devils advocate. Rather than resorting to the all too familiar racial slurs and hate filled tactics of the liberal, anti-gun coalition, I posed several questions concerning what she believed, was behind the violence which is seemingly ever present in society today.


You may well not like her answers; however, this is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to engage in a discussion of options.


At the risk of loosing her job if her views were made public, this young teacher spoke of the amount of parenting she is required to engage in with her students.


"Many, but certainly not all" parents fail to parent their children because they are "too busy with their own lives, lack the skills necessary to effectively parent or simply are unaware of their children's activities". Some parents have bought into the idea "their child's right to privacy, supersedes the rights of security for all".


This young teacher believes, her position, will ultimately cost her a career she loves deeply.


The driving force behind this thought process is "academia" itself. Today our colleges and universities are littered with professors pushing the liberal ideology under the guise of tolerance. The fact of the matter is, liberals have no tolerance for anyone who dares disagree with their position. If you speak up to support traditional family values, you are a racist and a bigot.


You have no right to Free Speech, because your views are "hate speech". If you support Christian values, you are either uninformed, misinformed or simply mentally ill. If you support the 2nd Amendment, you are personally responsible for the death of each and every person who dies by the hand of a deranged individual.


These positions are indefensible and so weak as to be unable to withstand scrutiny; yet, this is what our children are being taught in our absence. This campaign of brainwashing is very real and it must be stopped.


I very much enjoyed my time talking with this young woman and I have to acknowledge, what she spoke most passionately about was the love and responsibility she feels for her students.


In Parkland, Florida, we witnessed this love and personal sacrifice first hand when we learned two, Marjory Stoneman Douglas faculty, confronted the shooter, placing their bodies between their students and a madman. They willingly gave their lives to protect their students. If they would have had a firearm, they would at a minimum, have had a chance for a different outcome. 


When you juxtapose the courage and self sacrifice of theses teachers, with the actions of the School Resource Officer and the Broward County Officers who were the first on the scene, it makes me sick to my stomach. Images of law enforcement officers hiding behind their cars, as children are being murdered seems a surreal notion. For me, two questions must be addressed.


First, is non-engagement of an active shooter, the policy of Broward County Sheriffs Department? Second, we see the words "to serve and protect" on virtually every law enforcement vehicle in our country. Is this simply a catchy motto with no real meaning, or is it backed up by brave men and women, who are willing to stand up and confront evil?


I began this essay talking about the brave men and women I have known personally and their willingness to act, when called upon. When politics is held in greater regard than honor and duty, something is very wrong. Broward County Sheriff, Scott Israel, has done an unspeakable disservice to his department, his deputies and to his community. Leadership comes from the top down, yet time and time again we have witnessed the politicization of our law enforcement agencies. No longer can we rely on the upper echelon to do what is right, because they are too busy pushing a politically correct agenda and have lost the moral courage required to do their job. In my opinion, Sheriff Israel has no right to wear the uniform of law enforcement. He has nothing in common with the brave men and women we call cops and firefighters….Marc

The summation of Browning’s previous work in handgun development during the late 1890s and early 1900s, the 1911 was revolutionary both in terms of operation and power for a sidearm. After Colt’s submission proved reliable in 1910 testing, the US Army adopted the pistol in April of 1911, thus dubbing it the Model of 1911, or M1911 for short. The ATI FX M1911, is a classic, full size 1911, chambered in 45 ACP.
