A Nurse with a Gun

Wednesday, September 20, 2006


My blog began a year ago today, in the wake of hurricane Katrina. Law and order had failed in New Orleans, and citizens were being stripped of their means of self protection, loaded into military vehicles and shipped elsewhere against their will. Eddie Compass, Warren Riley, Ray Nagin and Jack Strain began widespread gun confiscations. The SAF and NRA were not yet acting on the most significant threat to gun owners since the massacre in Lexington Massachusetts on April 18,1775.

A lot has changed. Laws have been passed specifically forbidding confiscations in the future. The men governing those areas remain the same, however, with the exception of Eddie Compass who fell on his sword for his buddy Ray. I'm still blogging, although the subject matter is not as urgent. I've tried to remain a blog about guns. But enough history. It seems gun bloggers have a tradition of buying a gun on their blogiversary. I'm not sure if that is true. Can anyone confirm?

Congratulations and thank you.

If it's not a tradition to buy a gun on your blogoversary, then it's about time someone started it.

I say you should QUIT buying guns. Your darn posts have "made" me buy a 34-1 (so far) and replace at least 2 keyboards.

Yeah, I read you every day. I'm not certain what that says about me. Maybe I should buy a gun today...

Yup, it's true. That's when I picked up my Venezuelan Mauser. :)

You're a daily read for me; keep up the good writin'! :)

Yeah, seriously "Hobie" has it right. You're an "Enabler". Because you exist, I have to make you a daily read. This only serves to make me realize that there are people, better than me, who have the courage to post their thoughts as well as the facts. This blog is encouraging others (like me) to buy (more) guns. Guns are dangerous... They go "BANG!!" and stuff...

Really, Thank you for all of the information and thoughts you post for us to read. We know it's hard work to keep up with a blog, especially with your job and schedule.

You seem to buy an awful lot of guns... more than my budget allows...

Go for it.

You not only get to buy a gun, you get to buy lots of ammo for it, then take the day off and spend the day at the range! If your boss has a problem with that, tell him that Mr. Completely said it was OK, and if he doesn't thinks so, he can contact me directly...... (heh)

Congratulations on your blogoversary. I confess to reading your archives and never paying any attention to the dates.

Your site is pretty much a daily read. Please keep up the good work. You deserve a BBAGA reward.
