One weekend - TWO New Red Hats!
« on: September 14, 2020, 07:45:26 PM »
Colorado has two new Red Hat instructors! The Appleseed in Colorado Springs this last weekend gave two great instructors the chance to get out and complete everything needed to earn their Red Hats. They've both been putting a lot of work into preparing and it was certainly an honor to be there when everything was finished and they each retired those orange hats.

HUZZAH to you both!

Huzzah! Huzzah!
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

Truly outstanding. Congratulations and THANKS for stepping up. Our country needs you.
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
