As an NRA member pushing 10 years, I've never thought to use the discounts, until I had to rent a car for a month. It saved me over $125-- well worth the $35/yr membership.
So next time you're wondering if you should renew and he anti-gunners aren't enough for you to write that check, Google NRA discounts and see how your membership can quickly pay for itself.

In Hollywood, a person defending him/herself with a legal firearm is nearly unheard of. Concealed carry is the solution to active shooters, hell bent on killing as many innocents as possible. Maybe one day a prime time drama will tell it how it is- one brave person with a CCW can save lives.

From the story:
Three masked men tried to rob a man on Rosemont Avenue in West Price Hill Monday night. But the trio didn't know their victim had a concealed carry permit- and was prepared to shoot.
Troy Hammond and Tremaine Hughes are charged with aggravated armed robbery. Officers say they were both shot at during the incident -- but they are not the real victims.
Police say Hammond, Hughes, and another man jumped the victim, whose name has not been released. The victim has a concealed carry permit -- and fired a shot, hitting one suspect. That suspect is still in the hospital.

A good rule of thumb is when your kid understands the difference between life and death. Shooting is serious stuff, and you want to be sure your child understands that not taking the rules seriously could result in irreversible consequences.
Most kids have a clear understanding of life and death by 7 or 8 years old. A good first step is a clear respect for common household items that have some inherent danger, like the lawn mower, weed wacker, kitchen knives, etc. Another is the ability to list and explain the importance of the three safety rules (safe direction, finger off the trigger, unloaded until you're ready to shoot).
Taking the mystery out of firearms and teaching children to respect guns is important at an early age, but starting too soon could result in an irrational fear of guns or an accident.
For kids not quite ready to head to the range, we highly recommend the NRA's Eddie Eagle youth safety program. We also offer Youth training classes, which will show you how to teach your child. Details at CinciCCW.com.

The fact is bad guys can get a hold of guns, even in countries like Russia, England and Mexico where they're illegal. Sure, we should work to keep guns out of the criminal's hands, but making such a big deal out of the origin of a gun is foolish. It's the crime that matters. Law enforcement should be working to put bad guys in jail for the illegal acts they commit, not the legal ones.
And would have the source of the gun (or car or bat) stopped the crime? No, the bad guy would have just found another source.
So next time you hear the media panting about where someone got the gun, dismiss it. Remind people it's the crime that's important, not the means.
From the story: "The guns used in the shootings at the Pentagon and a Las Vegas courthouse this year were traced back to the police and court system in Memphis, Tenn. Authorities originally seized the weapons, which were then sold to licensed gun dealers, before making their way to the shooters. State Sen. Doug Jackson, who co-sponsored the measure that limits law enforcement's ability to destroy seized weapons, says the sales help in raising funds.

This type of tech must be vetted to the same standards of every other gun -- bury it, run it over with a car, throw it in water, etc. I don't know about you, but I certainly won't trust my life to something that could get as easily goofed up as a bluetooth headset or garage door opener. Failed batteries or loose circuits could get good guys killed, so take all these advancements with a grain of salt.
Even more important, let everyone know about the potential limitations (and consequences) of these technologies. Some local governments have already passed laws requiring all guns to be 'smart' as soon as the technology is available. We must push that this not be the case until all smart guns are reliable as regular guns, and make sure older guns don't get banned in the process.
An anonymous reader writes "Armatix has built a pistol that will disarm itself when it is taken away from a watch that sends it a wireless arming signal. The .22 caliber guns will go on sale in the US within months, and the initial price is 7,000 euro. Higher caliber models will follow. To activate the gun, users must enter a pin code on the wristwatch, and then keep it within roughly 20cm of the gun. If the person is disarmed, the gun can't be used against them. Also coming soon this year, civilians will also be able to buy three-shot Tasers, rubber bullets, as well as Heckler and Koch black rifles." This might not be good news for the citizens of New Jersey.

Another nice feature of having a CCW license--a state I-D that's still valid, despite the expired license.
