ON CHRISTMAS EVE…

Monday, December 24th, 2012

Recent events have reminded me as a son, a father, and a grandfather, to cherish the traditions of family and friendship and love.  God knows, recent tragedy has reminded us all of that…

 

Thoughts and prayers go to those whose loved ones cannot be with them on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

 

Spend as much time as you can with your loved ones.  We in the firearms world, caught up – more, of late, than ever – in one of the most contentious debates in our nation, must balance civil rights, logic, and above all the critical need to keep the innocent safe from evil. History shows us that those who know what they’re fighting for are the most effective advocates.  Let’s take this time to remind ourselves of the most important people in our lives. They are our raisons d’etre. It is they for whom we fight.

 

Christmas is a time to reflect upon our values. A time to think about doing The Right Thing, even in the face of the most terrible threats.  Christmas is a tradition, and nothing gets to be a tradition until it proves itself to be solid enough a foundation to uphold the future.

 

Enjoy a holiday of peace and of love.  Like all of the Backwoods Home team, I wish you a Merry Christmas.
