Florida has two new Orange Hats!
« on: May 29, 2019, 01:50:44 AM »
Our two newest Orange Hats from May 18-19, 2019 at Port Malabar Rifle & Pistol Club, in Palm Bay, FL, have chosen their forum names, and have registered on the Appleseed Forum!

Asa's forum name is Liberty SIREN.  (His family had a direct role in saving the Liberty Bell, and, for our modern age, a Liberty SIREN can sound louder and reach even more sleeping Americans than a Liberty Bell can!)

Hallie's forum name is Mrs. SIREN.

(And, I should add, there is an anagram at play, too!)

And, for those who don't know, Bear Arms is the proud papa of Mrs. SIREN, and Flier is Mrs. SIREN's brother.

And, of course, Bear Arms son-in-law is Liberty SIREN.

Please join me in welcoming our new Orange Hats!  Thanks for stepping up Asa and Hallie!

(Asa scored Rifleman on every AQT on Sunday:  211, 216, 236, 220, and 240;  earning both his Rifleman patch AND his Distinguished bar at this Appleseed event!  HUZZAAH!)

Congratulations!  Welcome to the Appleseed family! (pun intended)  ;)
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

"[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…"
- Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." - Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 19, 1785

When I find evil imposed or codified, I will War against it.
