In the wake of the latest firearms control laws implemented in California this past month, you’ll see a large number of pro-firearms proponents bailing out of the state within the final months of the year. Some are fighting “Gunmageddon” by petition and by conceptual design, I should add. However, there are other problems with the state of California, and it’s not just California, but most of the rest of our favorite anti-firearms states. The economies in the states of California, New York and New Jersey are horrendous, to say the least. This is driving many of the anti-firearms proponents out of those states as well. And, with them comes their unconstitutional mindsets and votes.
This weekend has been an absolute rollercoaster ride through Hell for many people. Two law enforcement engagements with civilians in Louisiana (July 5th) and Minnesota (July 6th) lead to many protests around the United States. This included the protest that occurred in Dallas on the night of the 7th of July where one armed man committed to killing as many white police officers as he could while the Dallas officers kept an eye on a Black Lives Matter protest. Furthermore, Dallas Police Chief David Brown reported that the gunman “had larger plans”.
This past month, I received my Concealed Handgun License, after it was released by the “Constitutional Restraint Unit”. No disrespect to the state police, but it’s asinine that anybody has to pay a ransom to obtain a Constitutionally-protected human right. That aside, just before July began, I picked up a SIG-Sauer P229 Scorpion TB for carry… which meant a whole new holster system. It was a clear departure from the Glock and Edge Works INCOG set-up that I had been running — mostly due to the fact that the Glock sponsored the SIG’s purchase.
