Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    A little more on Jeff Cooper

    Ohioans For Concealed Carry has a nice little memoriam for Colonel Cooper on their web page.

    And this looks to be an official obituary for the dearly departed. It discusses his life in a little more detail, some of his accomplishments, and mentions the books he's written. I own The Art of the Rifle, and it is packed with good information. Anyone interested in shooting rifles should have a copy.

    You read Ohioans for Concealed Carry? I though you were and Oklahoma resident? The Ohioans for Concealed Carry also have a pod cast if your into pod cast. The host does a really good job covering both Ohio CCW issues and CCW issues in general.

    The passing of Cooper is a sad occasion but from everything I have read about the man it appears he led a full and meaningful life and made a difference with his talents. Can't ask much more from this life I guess. DVC & RIP Colonel Cooper

    More accurately, I read KeepAndBearArms . com, which links to OFCC regularly. And I have a lot of family in Ohio, have considered moving back to Ohio, and therefore pay a little more attention to their struggles with gun issues than I would another state.

    Thanks for that link. Ohio may be in my future as well.
