Sheriff Chuck Wright from Spartanburg County, SC not only believes in CCW, he’s actually telling the truth about our justice system – IT DOESN’T WORK!  He has gone on record stating that women, in particular, NEED to carry and have a gun available to protect themselves.  Click on the link to read the entire OUTSTANDING interview and YOU MUST view the video:  http://www.wyff4.com/r/29638219/detail.html

If more in law enforcement took Sheriff Wright’s attitude we’d have more criminals in jail rather than on the streets assaulting women.

I'd also like to thank WYFF4.com in Greenville, SC for publishing this article and video.  Finally a news station that shows it like it is.

On March 31, 2011, SAS lost a very ardent supporter with the passing of Katherine Cristiani.  She was a lifetime member of SAS, and supported us with her time, and with her monetary donations.  She was also my great, good friend, and I miss her.

She became a Lifetime member of SAS a few years ago, and attended several of our Ladies Shoot Days.  She would make the rounds with me to bum ammo from merchants for our next event.  Each time I called her for a favor for SAS, she was right there, eager to lend a hand.

An international lawyer for Bank of America for 30 years, Katherine and her husband, Franklyn Prieskop had lived all around the world, including San Francisco, London, Hong Kong, and Boston.  She and Franklyn chose Austin, Texas when they retired.

Katherine's other great love was German Shepherds.  She and Franklyn were very active in Austin German Shepherd Rescue, and fostered many dogs who had been abandoned or abused.  They would nurse them back to health, and then find good homes for them.

Their own personal dog, Laine, also attended our shoots.  She was popular with everyone at the event, and she would lay comfortably in the shade and keep an eye on us.

Katherine suffered a long, painful bout with cancer--but I never heard her complain.  She was an inspiration for all who knew her.

May she rest in eternal peace.

Attitudes are Changing PDF Print E-mail

A Gallup Poll with new information about attitudes toward gun policy and gun ownership is out, you may be interested, it affects you! You can read it here:

Record-Low 26% in U.S. Favor Handgun Ban

It's these types of surveys that politicians and policy makers use against us to block changing policy or law, it's these types of surveys that the antis use to link guns to violent "tendencies" to scare us and more. With these findings (in our favor), they can only ask themselves the question: why?

I'm wondering the same thing, what is the perception out there, among women especially, about why guns are more accepted. Is it because of the Heller and other pro 2a court cases that have upheld our RKBA (right to keep and bear arms), is it because our views are becoming more liberal as the article suggests? The third posit in the article has me puzzled though, could our laxly attitudes simply be because our legislators "appear" not to be less interested in more gun-control laws? Just wondering, you can email me or your state SAS coordinator and let us know, we are interested in your opinion.
