Fifty people killed. More than 50 people injured.
The deadliest mass shooting by a single gunman in U.S. history occurred at an Orlando, Florida nightclub on June 12, 2016. Our hearts grieved with the murdered, the injured and their families.
Tragic events such as these illustrate how different we are from bleeding-heart liberals. The first thing that comes out of their mouths after a shooting is, “We have to get rid of the guns.”
Yeah, great idea. No terrorist will ever get a gun and murder groups of innocent people if there is a law against owning one. After all, terrorists are known as law-abiding citizens who would never do anything inappropriate.
The idiocy is mind-boggling.
Protection Was Just One Bullet Away
On the other hand, the first thing that comes to our minds after a mass shooting is, why didn’t a law-abiding citizen pull out his or her own gun, shoot the terrorist and end the carnage?
The scary thing is, we’ve had a liberal in the Oval Office since 2008, and one of these days somebody just might succeed in taking away our guns. Or at least try to.
And that’s where this blog comes in. You need to have places to hide your guns so that authorities and home invaders can’t take them away from you.
This is the first of two blogs providing ideas about how to keep your guns and other valuables such as cash and jewelry from being found and removed from your home.
Let’s take a look at 26 places where you can hide them. Remember, the best hiding places are ones that are easily accessible but would not be looked at twice by someone trying to find something.
