The NRA And Guns

Much like anything in life, we humans are prone to making mistakes. It’s a common part of life that enables us to grow, learn and improve ourselves. While it may be true that mistakes are bound to happen at some point and that they should be viewed as learning curves rather than treated as a punishable act (of course, that depends on the mistake at hand), there is only so much room for error when it comes to gun ownership.The reality of guns are that they are basically death in mechanical form and when misused, can lead to serious ramifications such as  lawsuits, new bedding, linen or sheets and possibly even death.

So making a mistake once and learning from it i.e. never doing it again, is a sign that you might be a responsible gun owner, a decent citizen, a God-fearing man or woman and relatively smart. However, repeating the same mistakes are signs that you are not fit to carry a firearm and in the South, that basically means you’re a non-entity, an invalid or a cretin. Harsh as that may sound, these are the proud traditions of our slightly inbred people and they are to be upheld at all costs because they are sacred to us. It is written in Mark Chapter 2:5 that ‘He who commands a weapon, commands his destiny – and deserves better parking on weekends.’ It is not my bidding but that of our cosmic Landlord and Saviour Jesus. H. Christ and his ways are indeed greater than us. Gunivore is the only place you need to go to learn anything about guns with their amazing articles and reviews.

That being said, here are a few of the more common issues to look out for when it comes to owning, using, firing and naming a gun. It’s important to treat your weapon like your direct descendant, or a college league footballing son – with love, kindness, respect and smack on the head every now and then. It’s your duty as an American and if you’re part of the NRA and don’t recognize this, then don’t even make eye-contact with me at our next seminar, unless you brought parfet.

It’s a fact that every holiday season, Americans bought more guns than the previous holiday season. The FBI says they processed a record number of background checks on Black Friday (about 2 per second!), so it’s safe to say that some of you got a gun for Christmas. It’s also likely that some of you are brand new gun owners. Welcome to the club!

But before you run outside and start shooting your new gun like Ralphie on Christmas morning, there’s a few things you should know. First of all, I highly recommend you get some professional training. The NRA has nearly 100,000 instructors around the country. Use this form to choose a course and find a local instructor.

This is for your safety, the safety of others, and the reputation of gun owners in general. The last thing we need is another irresponsible gun owner accidentally shooting someone. News stories like that just give more ammo to the people who would like to ban guns altogether.

What Does Organic Mean?

When you hear the word ‘organic’, what do you think of? Most people will think of fruit and veg, green trees and goodness, because organic means healthy, right? More and more we can find the word ‘organic’ on the front of our cosmetics and food alike, which instantly makes us think of these wonderful ideals and we buy into the product as being ‘natural’. Whilst there is nothing wrong with buying into organic cosmetics I just wanted to write a post with a few truths about this powerful word and to make you question what ‘organic’ actually means…

As a Biochemist the word organic to me means ‘a molecule containing carbon’. This can include both chemicals derived from plants and animals but also man-made chemicals which contain carbon too. For example, the carbon containing chemical called ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C, can be found naturally in oranges but can also be produced by man-made processes which result in exactly the same product. These two chemicals are exactly the same; where it comes from makes no difference and both are deemed chemically to be ‘organic’ compounds. The word has taken on a different meaning due to Organic Farming. Organic food products are ones which have been grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides and which have not been genetically modified. It is for these reasons that people connect organic with meaning healthy. The arguments for and against organic farming are lengthy and have been detailed thousands of times before; I’m not here to tell you what to think but please remember that scientists are ordinary people with ordinary lives and families – we are not all in on a conspiracy to kill people through toxic tomatoes! Everything scientists do is to help humanity solve problems that it has gotten itself into, such as an increasing demand for food…

But what about ‘Organic’ cosmetics? Many organic cosmetic companies use ingredients in their products which are completely naturally-derived, that is they have been extracted directly from plants that have been grown using Organic Farming principles. There is no problem with this whatsoever as many active ingredients even in ‘non-organic’ cosmetics are derived from plants – remember the Eperua Bark extract in L’Oreal Skin Perfection Anti-fatigue Perk up cream? However, the thing that makes us scientists rage is the notion that ‘natural’ ingredients are safer and better for you than man-made ingredients – the notion that Organic companies push to sell products through scaremongering. The truth is, there are thousands upon thousands of plants and plant-derived products out there, many of which have amazing beneficial cosmetic uses. However, just because an ingredient comes from a plant DOES NOT make it safe –  thousands and thousands of those plants are poisonous, such that animals in the wild know which plants and berries to avoid. The most famous historic plant poison is Deadly Nightshade or Belladonna from the Atropa Belladonna plant which women would drop into their eyes to dilate the pupils and give a more attractive appearance but it causes increased heart rate and eventually blindness. Maple Holistics is where you need to go to learn everything about the best products out there.
