For Your Information

DATE: April 20, 2018
TO: USF & NRA Member and Friends
FROM: Marion P. Hammer
USF Executive Director
NRA Past President

For years YETI Coolers have been a hot item for sportsmen at the Friends of NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction events around the country.

These Foundation events raise money to support youth programs and educational programs nationwide. The youth of America who benefit from these programs are the future hunters, hikers, fishermen/women, bikers, campers, wildlife photographers, mountain climbers, sportsmen/women and conservationists who will protect our natural resources and recreational lands.

Suddenly, without prior notice, YETI has declined to do business with The NRA Foundation saying they no longer wish to be an NRA vendor, and refused to say why. They will only say they will no longer sell products to The NRA Foundation. That certainly isn’t sportsmanlike. In fact, YETI should be ashamed. They have declined to continue helping America’s young people enjoy outdoor recreational activities. These activities enable them to appreciate America and enjoy our natural resources with wholesome and healthy outdoor recreational and educational programs.

The NRA Foundation is 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization.

In this day and age, information is power. We thought you needed this information.

I want one!













Not the NRA sticker. Those I got. I want an MHI sticker, and here is where I can get one.

Twenty-Five Years Ago Today...

...the FBI seige on the Branch Davidians ended in the death of seventy-six Davidians including 18 children. This one was also the result of an attempt to seize guns.

Two-Hundred and Forty-Three Years Ago Today...

...The British sent troops to Lexington and Concord to seize the weapons of the militia. It didn't work out for them but did manage to jump start the American Revolution. You think the Left might learn from history?

I Wonder Who* Wrote It?

David Hogg Gets a Book Deal




*at Media Matters

Just Some Guy

I've been looking at his videos for a few months now. The topic mostly comics and anime but he has a Jones for SJWs and how every comic they touch goes to shit. This video deals with gatekeepers and he is, as usual, spot on. Oh, this is the dude that in a short video about his influences turned me on to Fullmetal Alchemist and Naruto.

How to deal with SJWeenies trying to destroy a career...

..., as if they could. You go buy John Ringo's newest book. I did.
Monster Hunter Memoirs: Saints - eARC
At $15 it's a steal.

So, John Ringo was scheduled to appear at ConCarolinas and the SJWeenies had a fit. Apparently some made threats. Mr. Ringo withdrew from the Con at the request of the organizers because of fear for HIS safety. The SJWeenies are trying to claim a win because the organizers "caved". I like the way Mr. Ringo puts it...

Levon's War by Chuck Dixon

This seems like a wrap up for Dixon's Levon series. If so, I'm OK with that. Here, Levon made a promise when he was deployed to Iraq and now he return's to keep it. Dixon's prose in these novels strikes me as sparse but it works for this story. Read the series. It's well worth your time.

Though Hell Should Bar the Way by David Drake.

The latest of Drake's Lt. Leary series is as good as anything Drake has written before. This time Leary and Mundy aren't the central characters. Here Leary takes a former RNC cadet, forced to resign because of his father's crimes, under his wing. The cadet is the central character and the story is told in the first person. I w on't get into plot in that I don't want to ruin it for anyone who might pick it up, but it's good. In fact, I'd say I like this entry into the series more than any of the previous volumes. It's good stuff and highly recommended, but then, it's Drake.

If I ever need a new bank, I look to Wells Fargo

As it is, I'm happy with my credit union. If that changes, Wells Fargo is at the top of the list. Citicorp and Bank of America can f**k off. In Bank of America's case there are other, personal, reasons but telling me what I can buy with their cards is way up there.

Colion Noir Takes the Race-Baiting Media to School

In [formerly] Great Britain...

...the police confiscate these with a straight face. OK, I'll admit context is everything. The screwdriver, needle nose pliers and scissors could be used as stabbing weapons. No on the file and pliers. Advertising this seizure makes the officers look like fools. In Britain that's apparently encouraged. Poor Bobbies.

I might also add that this is what lies at the bottom of the slippery slope.

Accidental Warrior by Colin Alexander

Every once in a while I just pull up Amazon and look for new authors and something new that might grab me. The synopsis for Alexander's novel reminded me of H. Beam Piper's "He Walked Around The Horses". Why?  A College Freshman seeking shelter in a storm suddenly finds himself in an alternate North America three hundred years after it was settled by royals fleeing a devastating European plague. So, no United States. No industrial revolution.  just a hodge podge of small  sovereign nations always on the edge of war. Into this is dropped, our American teen. What does not kill him makes him stronger, and he grows into the adult he wasn't.

It did grab me, and it was three dollars well spent. Good story. Well drawn characters. Good action sequences. I liked it and look forward to more. Highly recommended.

Sins of Her Father by Mike Kupari

Kupari is the co-author of the Dead Six trilogy with Larry Correia. This is the sequel to his novel Her Brother's Keeper and the further adventures of Captain Blackwood and the crew of the privateer Andromeda. This time they're hired to transport a exiled general back to homeworld so he can prevent it's annexation by the evil Combine. There's really nothing new here but it still well done AND I'm looking forward to more.

What More Do They Want?

Two guys break into a house...

...and use a screwdriver to attack the homeowner. The homeowner defends himself with a knife and kills one of the intruders. Guess who gets arrested for homicide? In Great Britain, the homeowner.
Pictured: The pensioner, 78, arrested on suspicion of MURDER after 'stabbing armed burglar, 38, to death in struggle in his kitchen' when two intruders woke him as he slept next to his wife
Not the first time.

This kind of shit is what we in America can look forward to if David Hogg and the Parkland children and the big money backing them get their way.

I cite those celebrity assaults not because celebrities are more prone to wind up as crime victims than anyone else, but only because the measure of a civilized society is how easily you can insulate yourself from its snarling underclass. In America, if you can make it out of some of the loonier cities, it’s a piece of cake, relatively speaking. In Britain, if even a rock star or TV supremo can’t insulate himself, nobody can. In any society, criminals prey on the weak and vulnerable. It’s the peculiar genius of government policy to have ensured that in British society everyone is weak and vulnerable –from Norfolk farmers to Tom Cruise’s neighbor.

And that’s where America is headed if those million marching moms make any headway in Washington: Less guns = more crime. And more vulnerability. And a million more moms being burgled, and assaulted, and raped. I like hunting, but if that were the only thing at stake with guns, I guess I could learn to live without it. But I’m opposed to gun control because I don’t see why my neighbors in New Hampshire should have to live the way, say, my sister-in-law does–in a comfortable manor house in a prosperous part of rural England, lying awake at night listening to yobbo gangs drive up, park their vans, and test her doors and windows before figuring out that the little old lady down the lane’s a softer touch.

Read the whole article. It applies now more than ever.

I've always thought Roseanne Barr...

...was a special kind of crazy. Not the good kind, but the first two episodes of Roseanne were funny and I hate most of what passes for comedy these days. I'm waiting for the crazy to reassert itself. We'll see.













The main reason to watch the show is that you know the Hollywood Left has to hating this something awful. that's the plus to keeping the ratings up.

In [formerly] Great Britain...

...they got some serious gun control, but it turns out knives work just fine.

Apparently, the idea of allowing your citizens to arm themselves for self-defense doesn't occur. Knife control will make it all better.

They want to take ALL our guns

The gun control movement's denial that their endgame is a total ban on firearms is their biggest lie among many.

They want to repeal the Second? Yeah, campaign on that platform. Please. Get David Hogg and Hillary Clinton to campaign as a team. You'll win for sure.
