I was reading along and I realized something. None of the “firearms safety” laws in this country have really affected crime. It is for certain none of the gun-control laws passed in my time have done any good. In fact, I say that the Brady background check laws are useless and only serves as an infringement on the right to keep and bear arms.
A "study" has found that Chicago area criminals do not get their guns legally. We all knew this stuff already. Criminals do not prowl gun-shows looking for loop-holes. Nor do criminals join FaceBook gun trader groups looking to get their next heater. The gun-grabbers simpletons keep focusing on things that have little to no relevance to criminal activity.
Lights. This time we are talking about flashlights. Everybody needs a flashlight or three or six. I carry a solid light everyday and I must confess that I now find having a light at hand as handy as my knife. Maybe even more so. Even if you don't EDC a light, you need one for your nightstand and in your glove box or trunk for when the power goes out.
I hear it all the freaking time. It is a talking point from the small-minded. I even saw it in my book of face feed today. “Cars are licensed and regulated!” they claim, “Why do we not treat guns the same?”
