"Back in April 2007, I wrote this guest editorial for David Codrea's War on Guns blog. Given all the recent calls for firearm confiscation, repeal of the 2nd Amendment and other proposed violations of the Law of Unintended Consequences, a friend suggested that I should reprint it." ...

"3. The war would not end until one vision of America or the other won. It would be war to the knife and knife to the hilt. The 850,000 traditional Americans would be determined to take as many of the Einsatzgruppen, their commanders and controllers with them as possible. And it would be far greater than a one-to-one ratio. The fanaticism that the liberals have always imputed to us, would in the event, become real and deadly. ..." ...

... "The scenario presented in Small Wars Journal isn’t a literary device but an operational lay-down intended to present the rationale and mechanisms for Americans to fight Americans. Col. Benson and Ms. Weber contend, 'Army officers are professionally obligated to consider the conduct of operations on U.S. soil.' ..."

"A professor at the Joint Forces Staff College was relieved of duty in June for uttering the heresy that the United States is at war with Islam. The Obama administration contended the professor had to be relieved because what he was teaching was not U.S. policy. Because there is no disclaimer attached to the Small Wars piece, it is fair to ask, at least in Col. Benson’s case, whether his views reflect official policy regarding the use of U.S. military force against American citizens."

"Gun control advocates want Americans to believe that military-style semi-automatic rifles are designed for one thing and one thing only: spree killing. (e.g., 'Such weapons are nearly useless for self-defense but perfect for mass murder.') Gun rights advocates counter than AR-style rifles are the Swiss Army knife of long guns. They fulfill many roles, from target practice to home defense. And hunting. For some reason, the anti-gun crowd treads carefully around the hunting issue—as if taking game is a sacred American right that transcends day-to-day politics. Which, of course, it is and does. ..." ...

"As you probably know, routine maintenance of your firearm is the best way to keep it in safe working order. Rust is one of the biggest problems many hunters face, as these firearms are exposed to harsh conditions that may lead to excessive wear and malfunctions. The problem is more likely in wet, dirty and dusty environments. Fortunately, it’s relatively simple to remove rust from your gun and keep this issue from becoming a problem. While you’re cleaning your gun to remove the surface rust, keep in mind that you should never bear down very hard or you may cause damage to the firearm’s finish. Removing surface rust is one of the easiest things you can do to maintain the integrity of your rifle or shotgun ..." ...

"Guns have two main purposes: self-defense and entertainment such as hunting and shooting competitions. You don’t typically see a lot of overlap between the worlds of self-defense and hunting. You’d probably get arrested if you tried to carry your shotgun or hunting rifle around town so that you could use it for self-protection, and bringing your compact pistol out into the woods for a day of hunting is a little bit silly."

"In rare cases, however, the worlds of hunting and self-defense clash with bruising force. Such was the case in Fertile, Minnesota, where 66-year-old Mark Christianson had a close encounter with a wild buck." ...
