Back home from Asheville

My contract with TekSystems in Greenville ended prematurely on January 17th. There was no reason given other than the client called the account manager and said I was not a good fit for the role. I could say so much about this but I will be good and keep my thoughts to myself. Needless to say, I will NEVER do business with the aforementioned company again. I packed my bags and left the airbnb in Hendersonville and drove the 4.5 hours to come back home to Charleston. I will miss some of the people at the business I worked at for 6 weeks but I am happy to be back home.

I am happy to state that it took me a little over 2 weeks to land a job working in the data center for a local hospital in Ladson SC. The job site is about 20 minutes from where we live. I am excited about this opportunity and I believe that it is a very good fit for what I am looking for. The two gentlemen who work in the NOC that interviewed me were ex Navy and law enforcement so we had a lot in common. We are all about the same age too.

The barometric pressure in Asheville NC really got the nerve pain in my right temple all fired up. I am still dealing with the pain and I am getting very tired of it.

Katy and I spent the day at the Ladson Gun Show manning the table for South Carolina Carry. This is a grassroots gun advocacy, education and safety organization. We are working closely with legislators in Columbia SC to try and get open carry bills passed this year. We are also working with legislators to fight any bills that would strip our state citizens gun rights away from them. In particular there is a red flag gun law that the liberals are trying to get implemented at the state level along with a senator in Washington DC that is trying to get it passed on the national level.

What is a red flag gun law? Once passed this enables anyone to report you as a danger to yourself or others and the police and file for a warrant to search your home for guns and ammo and then come seize them without the due process of the law. In other words, you do not have to commit a crime for them to do this. Once your property has been seized you have to hire an attorney and prove to the court that you are not a threat to anyone. This process can take weeks or months and lots of legal fees that come out of your pocket.

What is ugly about this type of unconstitutional search and seizure is that there are home owners that open their door in the early hours of the morning with a gun in their hand because they are not expecting any visitors. If the homeowner does not comply immediately to the order to drop the weapon they are being shot and sometimes killed.
This is not a fairy tale, it is a night mare for law abiding citizens who are now coming under fire because of this bill.

Common sense gun reform is the mantra that is being chanted from all of the liberal gun control groups who are pushing for these types of bills to be passed. Our goal as a grassroots organization is to educate our members to these activities and get them to respond to the legislators and get them to vote a resounding NO when the laws are being presented in the Senate in Columbia.

March for life

Today, teenagers and some of their parents marched all across America in the March for Life. They are demanding that the government enact stricter gun control laws. We want common sense gun reform. We are tired of our children being the victims of senseless gun violence. Signs were held high telling our legislators to stop being afraid of the NRA. It will be interesting to see how the legislators respond in Washington and state capitols across our nation. I agree that there needs to be reform but it needs to target a broken criminal justice system. It needs to target the failing MHMR system. It needs to target low income neighborhoods that are filled with fatherless youth who have no direction and join gangs to feel a part of something. For some reason no one wants to address those issues. Instead the solution remains the same. More restrictive gun laws. How are more restrictive gun laws going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and mentally ill people? I have not heard an answer to that one either. How about freeing up enough funds in our state budgets to put a camera system and resource officers in our schools who can respond to people who would do harm to our most valuable resource, our kids? We protect judges, legislators, air ports, court rooms but not our schools. It makes me think that those who are in charge of the fiscal budget place little to no importance on protecting our children and educators. So, the answer is more involvement by big government to solve the problem. How about we come together as a community and talk about the real issues that facilitate so called gun violence?
