The only way to survive a violent attack and emerge victorious against evil is to train for it and respond to it with greater justified and completely moral violence. Until that reality becomes accepted and spread through our schools, violence will continue; the loss of innocent lives will continue; and politicians will continue to use such horrific events, leveraging them for their own power-grabbing agendas.

The law was given a nice simple name, picked by a team of politicians, I’m sure, to make it easily identifiable, short and somehow emotionally catching. But a law about “universal background checks” will no more be only about background checks than “Obamacare” (see?

Let’s recognize that, thanks to the popular movies and television shows, most of us consider survival as having a combat/defense component.

If you’re not familiar with “Gibbs’ Rules” I invite you to do a Google search and you’ll find several reference sites with them. In the Borelli household we have a set of rules as well, but never before had I tried to actually list them. I could cite them, but they weren’t numbered like Gibbs’. SO… it was suggested to me that I do precisely that.

I can’t help but wonder if we’re seeing the beginnings of a second civil war. The first civil war didn’t start out with shots fired. It started out with states unhappy about federal power grabs and forced enforcement restricting rights that the confederate states felt were constitutionally exclusively theirs.
