Good morning, Ya'll!

Wanted to send a little shout out to New Mexico's own HotairBill on the occasion of his 25th shoot.  Congrats, Bill!

Congratulations,  Bill!
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.

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

Nice job Bill! You are firing up that furnace of liberty down in NM - Huzzah!

BTW - Bill was an instructor at my first Appleseed (first as a student) at the Whittington Center!

HUZZAH!
tk
The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

-- Justice Alex Kozinski, US 9th Circuit Court, 2003

Bill, thanks for hanging in there and making good things happen in southern NM.

I don't know if you remember, but you were a huge help to me as I attended my second Appleseed ever in Roswell, and much of how you coached me impacted how I do things today at my shoots.

Your legacy is giving even as you still give.
