    Technology to the Rescue - fixing gun loss boating accidents

    For those other unfortunate souls out there who have lost entire gun collections in unfortunate boating accidents, help is on the way!

    From TTAG:

    When it comes to maritime activities, TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia is unlucky. Again and again, we hear of boating accidents in which all manner of firearms are tragically lost. While there’s not much we can do to save the guns, Morgan Advanced Materials’ Composites and Defence Systems are doing their level best to keep gun owners afloat and bullet-resistant………One can only hope the system makes it to the civilian market – hope floats! – and that the new holsters prevent the kind of loss experienced by our unfortunate readers …..

    The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us....There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! ...The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, Sir, let it come …………. PATRICK HENRY speech 1776

    Besides posibly keeping someone from being air conditioned, all that will do is keep them afloat. Does nothing to prevent the tragic sinkings.

    I'm a slave only to my wife.
    If ALL gun owners would go out and vote, the results might be a wake up call to the White House and Congress.
    But too many expect someone else to carry the load.

    Our open carry booth was in last years Oyster Run ( a biker run) I knew from the conversations with many other gun owners who vote our rights were up for erosion that year.

    Gun owners are not necessarily a rights based persons friend.

    Do you not pay taxes?

    So I'm guessing your approach is to not vote, and just let the "progressive's" agenda continue and grow?

    No, it just so happens that many guns owners are communist/statist/"progressive" and that is the problem.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    Most are not. That's the solution.
