Gun Talk #1 - Talkin' at you!

hey all,

chances are if you found this blog, you're probably thinking "oh it's just another gun nut talking about how awesome his rifle is". And you'd be correct! But more than that, I want this blog to be an educational forum about firearms.

There is a lot of talk out there and a lot of misconceptions about guns, how buying a gun works, and just a lot of prejudices about this so-called "controversial" way of life for a majority of Americans. Not only do I want to help more people understand what gun ownership really is, I want to get them excited about firearms and get into what is such a versatile hobby.

Now what I'm going to write on this blog is not legal advice, and is by no means universal. If you live in awful states like California and New York, most of this probably won't even mean anything to you, but I'm going to try to include information not only about my home state of Virginia, but other states as well.

Remember that as gun owners, it is our responsibility to know when, where, and how we are supposed to conduct ourselves, carry our firearms, and be in accordance with both federal and state statutes. I will get into this more in other articles as I find and relate news stories as well as personal narratives.

This is going to be a collaborative effort and I hope to draw a lot of information from my fellow bearers of arms throughout the internet. Everyone brings a new perspective and different ways to look at different issues, so I'm hoping that there will be articles not only by myself, but friends and colleagues in the firearms world.

So stay tuned and look forward to a lot of great commentary, ideas, and gun talk from this blog in the future!

  1. Good for you, I'm all for it. More people need to be educated about firearms and the rights and responsibilities of ownership. It's also a good idea for those who do not wish to own firearms to properly educated as well.
