Good Evening!

horseheader1.jpeGood Evening bloggers!

Thank you all for visiting our site today and for joining in the discussion.  I want to especially thank Taryn Raye, AndreaW, Mary Connealy, Paty, Tanya Hanson, Joanna Sheats, Cherie J., Connie Lorenz, Crystal Adkins, and my fellow Western Authors, Charlene Sands, Pam Crooks, Elizabeth Lane and Linda Broaday.

Thank you all for your delightful posts and insightful comments.

And now one more thing before I sign off for the day — I thought I’d share some photos with you from the weekend.  The first photo is a picture of the very first shot that I fired, along with the so very understanding and patient instructor — who was left holding the gun as I backed up crying.  The second photo was taken the next day, with me recovered from my original shock and shooting on my own.

Have a super day tomorrow and please remember that if you haven’t already done so, please be sure to enter into our contest.  There are some wonderful prizes.

  1. Hello Karen , our second amendment rights are very important , more than some believe . I have owned a gun and taken shotting lessions and i have hunted . All have been done with the knowlge that i am responsable for my gun and what it shoots , not the other way around. The right to bear arms is a right that was given to us by our founding fathers and should be considered a privlage and responsablity. I have had many a good time with my dad hunting and at the shooting range. A gun can be a enjoyable thing to have as long as you are a responsable gun owner. Our second Amendment right’s have been given to us for the need to get food and to protect us against our enemy’s both foreign and domestic. Thank god i am living in a country with so many freedoms and am able to enjoy the freedoms that my forefathers fought so hard to give me and my fellow man/ women. May the Great Spirit Bless you Alma

  2. Hi Alma & Tanya!

    I feel like you both are old friends. Thanks for the compliment, Tanya — but the photo is from behind — it’s probably a little easier to look good from the rear…

    And Alma, you are so intelligent and so very, very right. I agree with you so much — I would only modify your statement to say that a right is not a privilege. A right is something inherent — something God-given. A right is something so much a part of a person’s make-up, he cannot be divorced from it. All rights come with responsibilities, as well — these are also God-given and inherent. It is a right to own a gun because every single human being has the right to defend himself/herself. No tyranny can take away that right because it is inherent. Even a one celled animal will fight for it’s life. It’s not something one can divorce from life. Our Founding Fathers wrote the 2nd Amendment as they did to protect the People from tyranny, knowing that government with power can use that power to enslave.

    Privileges on the other hand are granted by another. A right is something you don’t need to ask permission for. There has been much corrosion of our basic rights as set out in the Declaration of Independence (it named several of them) over the years with our government pretending that it has all the rights and is granting The People privileges. It is the other way around per our Constitution. We the people — individuals — have rights — not a government (which is basically an idea people have) — and we grant the government privileges. That’s the way our Founding Fathers, in their wisdom, set it up.

    Can you tell I’ve been taking some classes on the Constitution lately with none other than Michael Badnarek? : )

    Thanks again, Alma! You said it so well.
