From the Desk of John Rourke – February 20th, 2017


Saturday morning took three people shooting – two of them had never pulled a trigger before. Went well. Safety was emphasized of course with expectations laid out. I kept a very close watch and had to speak up several times early on as the “don’t point the gun at anything you are not willing to destroy” rule was not followed.

One of them – a women from the Liberal mecca of New York – now has a better understanding of firearms and understands that they are not evil they are merely an extension of the owner.

I feel Spring in the air. Now that I’ve said that we’ll get hit with an ice storm. Bring it!

Interesting how the MSM is literally freaking out about Trump’s trip down to Florida. A campaign rally? If Obama had done the same thing he would have been praised on how he was “Connecting with the people and staying in touch.” I will admit I am not sure that it is the best way to spend the taxpayers dollar but if it keeps progress going then I’m all for it.

Hope everyone has a great week!!!!
