"One cannot legislate the maniacs off the street ... these maniacs can only be
shut down by an armed citizenry. Indeed bad things can happen in nations
where the citizenry is armed, but not as bad as those which seem to be
threatening our disarmed citizenry in this country at this time." Jeff Cooper  


"There are no dangerous weapons. There are only dangerous men."
- Robert A. Heinlein

NOTE:  Most links in the future will be "tinyurls" which should open with a single or
double click or, alternatively, can be copied and pasted into your browser window.
To copy and paste, you will need to highlight the entire tinyurl with your cursor then
copy and paste it into your browser window. Control C is the command "copy" and
Control V is the command "paste" or you can use copy and paste from your edit menu
at the top of your email program.

When you just click on long, two-line links the second line of the link may not be active
and you will get an error message saying the link is not active.

REPAIRING LINKS: If the long link does not work, check it in your browser window for
spaces between characters after you paste it into your browser window.
If these are
found, they will often be at the place where the text changes color or the second line
begins. Put your cursor on the space and delete it and try again. It should work if you
found and deleted them all.
