Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Member of the Good Guys Posse?  

Here is a little test that will help you decide.

The answer can be found by posing the following question:


You're walking down a  deserted street with your wife and  two small children.

Suddenly, an Islamic  Terrorist with a huge knife  comes  around the corner, locks eyes with you,screams obscenities, praises  
Allah, raises theknife, and charges at you.  

You are carrying a  Ruger Vaquaro cal. 45 LC, and you are an expert shot.  

You have mere seconds  before he reaches you and your family. What  do  you do?  
  
.............................................................

  


THINK CAREFULLY AND  THEN SCROLL DOWN:  










Democrat's  Answer:  


Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!  
Does the man look poor or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?  
Could we run away?
What does my wife think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?  
What does the law say about this situation?  
I live in Illinois and don't have FOID Card, what will Mayor Daily think?
Does the pistol have appropriate safety built into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?  
Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?  
Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?
If I were to grab his knees and hold  on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
Should I call 9-1-1?
Why is this street so deserted?  
We need to raise taxes, have paint and weed day and make this happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for few days and try to come to a consensus.  

...................................................................................................................  



Republican's  Answer:  



BANG!


..................................................................................................................  



GGP Posse Member's Answer:  


BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! Click..... (Sounds of reloading)
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!  Click
Daughter: 'Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the  factory loads or your reloads?! '
Son: 'Can I shoot the next one?!'
Wife: 'You ain't taking that to the Taxidermist!

Guess I would keep reloading until I had no more ammo, or....., I'd borrow some from another Good Guy who was walking nearby.
Hmmmmm, must make me a Republican and a Good Guys Posse member!!!     :goodguy:      :usabig:

I believe my kids would be complaining that they would have to count the holes to see if there were any misses as the target was not reactive with the clangs for each hit.  Would also question the correct shooting order at body parts to determine whether there was a procedural.

I need to know if I shoot pistol first or rifle and do I get to reload my shotgun. Also do I get a bonus if he's moving when I take my first shot, not that I could hit a moving target anyway, but just a thought.

Rule #1 of Marine Corps Rules of Gunfighting:

"If you are going to a gunfight, bring a long gun. Bring two long guns. Bring friends with long guns."

Thus endith the lesson.


Here's the rest of the USMC Rules of Gunfighting:

USMC Rules for Gunfighting


  1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.

  2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Your life is expensive.
  3. Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.
  4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough nor using cover correctly.
  5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and diagonal movement are preferred.)
  6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.
  7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
  8. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.
  9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on "pucker factor" than the inherent accuracy of the gun.
  9.5 Use a gun that works EVERY TIME.
  10. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
  11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
  12. Have a plan.
  13. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.
  14. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
  15. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
  16. Don't drop your guard.
  17. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
  18. Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them).
  19. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.
  20. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
  21. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
  22. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
  23. Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
  24. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with a ".4"


Navy Rules to Gunfighting


  1. Go to Sea
  2. Send in the Marines
  3. Drink Coffee

Some Further Thoughts on Guns:

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield,  and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.

When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him "Why do carry a .45?". The Ranger responded, "Because they don't make a .46."

The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle."

Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!

To this I will add my comments. I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house, - to which I said I did. She said "well I certainly hope it isn't loaded!" To which I said, "of course it is loaded, can't work without bullets.." She then asked, "Are you that afraid of some one evil coming into your house?" My reply was, "No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching afire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too."

Please see the full Rules of Marine Corps Gunfighting - there IS no procedural. See Rule #3. And my favorite, Rule #20 - The sooner you end the fight, the less shot you get.

Remember - Gun Control Means Never Having To Say "I Missed You!"
