Arizona Still Number One for Gun Owners

S&W 686Yesterday, I learned about Arizona’s status as the best state for gun owners. The Arizona Citizens Defense League notified us about the Guns and Ammo Magazine survey via email and FecesBook®.

For the SIXTH consecutive year Guns and Ammo magazine has rated Arizona as the #1 state for gun owners. The ratings are published in the November 2018 issue. Click here to view a copy of the ratings.

The AZCDL email contained the following information:

States were measured by the following criteria:

▶ Right To Carry
▶ Treatment of “modern sporting rifles” (ARs, AKs, etc.)
▶ Magazine capacity limits
▶ Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground
▶ Treatment of NFA firearms
▶ Miscellaneous issues such as constitutional protections, preemption, restrictions on gun or ammo purchases, CCW reciprocity, availability of places to shoot, etc.

Arizona scored a perfect 10 in the numerically rated categories and a YES in the Magazine Capacity Unlimited column. The citizens of our state owe our great score to the relentless efforts of the Arizona Citizens Defense League who, since 2005, have organized and lobbied for our Constitutional and God-given rights to self defense.

U.S. Marine Corps 216th Birthday

sign72b.jpgA hearty Happy Birthday and job well done to the men and women that serve or have served in the United States Marine Corps. We will never forget the Few and the Proud who share the legacy of the Corps. God bless the USMC.

On November 10, 1798, President John Adams signed the Act establishing the United States Marine Corps. The 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps, General John A. Lejeune, issued Marine Corps Order Number 47, Series 1921, directing that on November 10th of every year, in honor of the Corps’ birthday, the Order’s summary of the history, mission and tradition of the Corps be read to each and every command.

Although I was in the Navy, I really liked this spoof of the “Never mind the dog” window sign that features the USMC Logo and serves as a warning to those that may want to think twice before entering the premises.

Quail Brood

Quail Brood

We stopped at the last rest stop in Arizona before crossing into California on our way out to the old homestead today. We have to stop in order to (as Bob says) “Californicate” our carry weapons. You know, unload and lock the guns away where they are of no use to us for self defense purposes. But, enough about the unconstitutional state of Kalifornistan.

At the rest stop, a family of quail, a mama and papa and their brood of seven chicks were browsing the area just as we were leaving the rest stop. I took several images of these cute little birds as they made their way to wherever they were headed. Click on the image to enlarge.

The Truth About The Mayan Calendar

One of our gun bloggers thinks the administration welcomes all the hype over the Newtown massacre to hide their failure with the economy and the “fiscal cliff.” The media, of course, are complicit in the ruse. It serves two agendas: hide the fail and implement gun control.

Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire

I received this message today from Ray Carter of the Second Amendment Foundation:

Second Amendment FoundationIn the last 15 days, supporters of the 2nd Amendment pledged [over] $15,000 for support of the important new film “Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire” that exposes California as the front line in the civil rights battle between public safety and the 2nd Amendment. The Second Amendment Foundation and the Calguns Foundation have each contributed $5,000.00 to get this project off the ground.

Please go to and make your pledge now.

Ray asked us to let readers of Cap’n Bob & the Damsel know about the project even though we have already put similar posts on the other blog.

Half Moon Over Casandro Castle


Maybe it’s not exactly a castle, but our little house in Casandro Wash seems just like that to us. Besides, Arizona is a Castle Doctrine State. Click on the image to enlarge.
