Some Thoughts Heading Into the Weekend . . .

Some nuggets to ponder as we head into the weekend. An observation by Thomas Sowell, with commentary by the late Col. Jeff Cooper:

"The desire to order people around and make them conform to one's own vision takes many forms." - Thomas Sowell

"Which emphasizes the great difference between those of us who are activist gun owners and other "extremists" who devote themselves to causes. Unlike the zealots who agitate for other causes, from tobacco bans to bunny hugging, we shooters have no wish to push other people around. Our major desire is that they leave us alone. It is odd that nobody has mentioned that difference before."

- Col. Cooper
