I'm a Christian, a born-again, dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ, saved-by-grace, Biblical, evangelical Christian. (If you aren’t, then I'd love to talk to you about it. Freep-mail me?)

I'm on the Board of Directors with
Students for Concealed Carry on Campus, as well as a coordinator for my university campus, state chair, media representative and part-time coffee brewer. Our goal is to make colleges and states allow licensed concealed carry on campuses, and stop pretending that "gun-free zone" signs will deter a mass murderer.

I’m conservative, and I defend those beliefs vigorously, with special interests on topics such as abortion, creation vs. evolution, global warming, 2nd Amendment rights and other political topics. I immensely enjoy defending and debating both faith and politics, and the integration thereof. I believe in intelligent, reasoned, skillful debate, and enjoy the study of formal debate, logic, rhetoric, fallacies, and so forth.

I am a single college student studying Business Management, and am intending to enter law school upon graduation. In my spare time, I enjoy family, internet debating (surprise!), pets, literature, the occasional video game, photography, country music, good movies, and good soundtracks. I have an attraction to almost any weapon, particularly swords, including movie weapons. I would love to learn more formal styles of combat.

I enjoy this forum immensely, and Jim Robinson has my immense gratitude for creating it.

It's plain to see our laws keep getting stranger everyday.
The courts won't rest until they've taken all our rights away.
Ain't nothing sacred anymore and everyone's in danger,
When some fool thinks he can take the mask off the Lone Ranger.

Now I'm not one to criticize the way our courts are run,
And I don't complain about the harm some liberals have done.
But this time they've gone one step too far, they're hitting close to home.
We've got to let them know that the Lone Ranger's not alone.

So come on everyone, let's get behind our Lone Ranger.
He's fighting bad guys once again and his career's in danger.
They're trying to take his mask away and give it to a stranger.
So let's do all we can to keep the mask on the Lone Ranger.
For over thirty years Clayton's lived up to the task.
Now some judge has decided he's not fit to wear that mask.
Well, it don't make no difference what that judge might have to say.
Ain't nothing gonna make it right to take that mask away.

(Chorus)

Our courts are all mixed up about just who the bad guys are.
Or maybe they don't know that the Lone Ranger wears a star.
I guess it's up to you and me to see justice gets done.
'Cause if they take his mask away they're hurting everyone.

So come on everyone, let's get behind our Lone Ranger.
He's fighting bad guys once again and his career's in danger.
They're trying to take his mask away and give it to a stranger.
So let's do all we can to keep the mask on the Lone Ranger.
- John T. Douglas, KEEP THE MASK ON THE LONE RANGER, 1979




PING LISTS!


Currently, I run five different ping lists. (Whew!)

Armed Citizens!

The most popular is the Armed Citizen list. We scour the headlines from across the nation and take stories of ordinary citizens using firearms to save life and limb, and post them in support of the 2nd Amendment.

(((Armed Citizen ping)))



This list keeps track of everyday citizens using firearms
to save life and limb. It is a medium- to high-volume ping list.

In addition, take the keyword "armedcitizen" and type your state's initials in to see how your state is doing! (That is, if you live in Washington, type keyword "waarmedcitizen" or in Texas, type "txarmedcitizen.")

Everyone loves a good British fantasy book made into a movie. Lord of the Rings still reigns supreme in my opinion, but Narnia is a great second-place.
