About

Curtis Stone…aka Sailorcurt:

I’m a displaced farm boy who retired from the US Navy as a Chief Petty Officer after 21 years of service.

The title of this blog sort of reflects my personality in the sense that, although I’ve been in positions of authority and have thrived in them, I’ve always been a bit of a loner.  I can take a leadership role if necessary, but I don’t enjoy being responsible for (or exercising power over) others; however I definitely don’t like anyone else assuming responsibility for (or exercising power over) me.

I’m the Captain of my ship, but I’m  the only crew.

  2. Good Morning, Sailorcurt:

    I just finished reading your analysis of weapons used in violent crimes. I agree with you totally. The issue of the proposed “Assault Weapons Ban” is a political effort by some Democrats to alter the “Second Amendment.”

    The following is part of an e-mail I sent to Senators Nelson and Rubio of Florida, and to the NAGR.
    __________________________________________________________________
    “I am concerned that the Democratic Party is only politicizing the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. This effort for the “Assault Weapons and Hi-Capacity Magazine Bans” is only being done for political gain. It has nothing to do with the safety of our children or our citizens.

    This politicization is a veiled effort, as Obama has continually promised, to “Fundamentally Change America.” This is an attack on our “Bill of Rights” as well as our “Constitution.” Where was the administration when the Democratic Party had both the House and Senate? The issue of Gun Laws was not an issue at that time because there was no political benefit.

    Why has the Democratic Party shown limited support for “Protecting our Borders?” The reason is that the Democratic Party realized that there was an opportunity. This opportunity was recently enhanced by the Obama Administrations “Temporary Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants” to gain the Hispanic vote for the 2012 Elections.

    Taking a simplistic view, the Democratic Party is attacking our citizens that are “Law Abiding and Legal Gun Owners” because these gun owners typically vote Republican. Any effort to take rights away from “US Citizens” while granting “Temporary Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants” will force many Democrats to consider voting “Republican” for the 2014 Mid-Term Elections!

    Before the Feinstein Gun Ban reaches the House and Senate floors people need to realize that the proposed Gun Ban will also have a significant economic impact. Firearms sources indicate that there are approximately 100,000 people employed directly in the manufacture of firearms. There are as similar number of people employed in supplying components to the firearms industry.

    There is also, what economists call, the “multiplier effect.” Simply stated, for every one person that would lose their jobs in the manufacturing and supplier bases, from five to seven indirect individuals will also be impacted.

    Any decision made will also have an even greater economic impact. To paraphrase, the sale of ammunition, firearms, accessories, and other incidentals contributes between $30 billion to $70 billion to our economy. The industry also makes a significant contribution to federal, state and local tax coffers.

    We do not need an “Assault Weapons Ban” or “Ban on Hi-Capacity Magazines. We need to “Protect our Children” as well as “Protect our Second Amendment Rights,” and our “Constitution.” We need to enforce the 20,000 plus Gun Laws already on the books, and have the BATFE and FBI develop better screening for individuals unable to be “Law-Abiding Legal and Responsible Gun Owners.”

    Some gun owners did not head the NRA, GOA, and NAGR Warnings prior to the 2012 Election. The first “Verbal Shots” have been fired across our bow. Collectively, we can survive the “Gun Ban Storm” and see our Gun Rights and the Second Amendment” be strengthened during and after the “Gun Ban Storm” subsides.

    Please consider me as a member of your crew as we fight to preserve the “Second Amendment.” We, and all Law-abiding Gun Owners, must address the lies being presented by the Obama Administration and his “Left-Wing” press.

    Please also accept my thanks for the 21 years of service you gave to the United States of America.

    Regards,

    Casey
