Burn Rate

Powder Burn Rate Chart

About this chart:

Starting at number 1 powder will have the fastest burn rate and ending at number 104 will have the
slowest burn rate.The secret is to start at lower settings and work up keeping a close watch for pressure signs.

 Disclaimer: Never take my word or anyone else’s without first consulting a reloading manual and always start your own loads at the minimun settings listed in a manual and working up; being careful to watch for any signs of pressure.

Title 21. Crimes and Punishments

 

Chapter 53. Manufacturing, Selling and Wearing Weapons

1271.1. Detention or arrest of person under 18 years – Confiscation and forfeiture of pro­hibited weapons and firearms – Disposition of forfeited weapons and firearms.

A. Whenever a person under eighteen (18) years of age is detained or arrested by a law en­forcement officer and is carrying any weapon or firearm prohibited by Section 1272 of this title, each such prohibited weapon and firearm may be confiscated and forfeited to the State of Okla­homa by the law enforcement authority. Such confiscation and forfeiture shall not require that criminal charges be filed against the minor.
B. However, when a weapon or firearm con­fiscated pursuant to the provisions of this section has been taken by a minor without the permis­sion of the owner, the weapon or firearm shall
be returned to the owner pursuant to the proced­ures provided in Section 1321 of Title 22 of the Oklahoma Statutes, provided the possession of such weapon or firearm by the owner is not otherwise prohibited by law.
C. Any weapon or firearm confiscated and for­feited by any law enforcement authority may be sold at public auction, or when no longer needed as evidence in the criminal proceeding the con­fiscating authority may lease any firearm confis­cated and forfeited by law pursuant to this sec­tion to any law enforcement agency for a period of one (1) year. Such lease may be renewed each year thereafter at the discretion of such authority to assist in the enforcement of the laws of this state or its political subdivisions. Any weapon or firearm deemed by the confiscating authority to be inappropriate for lease or sale shall be destroyed.
D. For purposes of this section, the term “con­fiscate” shall not be construed to prohibit any parent, guardian or other adult person from re­moving or otherwise seizing from any minor any weapon or firearm in the minor’s possession. Provided however, no school authority shall re­turn any weapon or firearm removed or other­wise seized from any minor to any person, and shall immediately deliver such weapon or fire­arm to a law enforcement authority for prosecu­tion and forfeiture.
1272. Unlawful carry. It shall be unlawful for any person to carry upon or about his or her per­son, or in a purse or other container belonging to the person, any pistol, revolver, shotgun or rifle whether loaded or unloaded … or any other offensive weapon, whether such weapon be concealed or unconcealed, except this section shall not prohibit:
1. The proper use of guns and knives for hunting, fishing, educational or recreational pur­poses;
2. The carrying or use of weapons in a man­ner otherwise permitted by statute or authorized
by the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act, Section 1290.1 etseq. of this title; or
3. The carrying, possession and use of any weapon by a peace officer in the performance of official duties and in compliance with the rules of the employing agency. Any person convicted of violating the foregoing provision shall be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable as provided in Section 1276 of this title.

1271.1. Detention or arrest of person under 18 years – Confiscation and forfeiture of pro­hibited weapons and firearms – Disposition of forfeited weapons and firearms.

A. Whenever a person under eighteen (18) years of age is detained or arrested by a law en­forcement officer and is carrying any weapon or firearm prohibited by Section 1272 of this title, each such prohibited weapon and firearm may be confiscated and forfeited to the State of Okla­homa by the law enforcement authority. Such confiscation and forfeiture shall not require that criminal charges be filed against the minor,

B. However, when a weapon or firearm con­fiscated pursuant to the provisions of this section has been taken by a minor without the permis­sion of the owner, the weapon or firearm shall be returned to the owner pursuant to the proced­ures provided in Section 1321 of Title 22 of the Oklahoma Statutes, provided the possession of such weapon or firearm by the owner is not otherwise prohibited by law.

C. Any weapon or firearm confiscated and for­feited by any law enforcement authority may be sold at public auction, or when no longer needed as evidence in the criminal proceeding the con­fiscating authority may lease any firearm confis­cated and forfeited by law pursuant to this sec­tion to any law enforcement agency for a period of one (1) year. Such lease may be renewed each year thereafter at the discretion of such au­thority to assist in the enforcement of the laws of this state or its political subdivisions. Any wea­pon or firearm deemed by the confiscating au­thority to be inappropriate for lease or sale shall be destroyed.

D. For purposes of this section, the term “con­fiscate” shall not be construed to prohibit any parent, guardian or other adult person from re­moving or otherwise seizing from any minor any weapon or firearm in the minor’s possession. Provided however, no school authority shall re­turn any weapon or firearm removed or other­wise seized from any minor to any person, and shall immediately deliver such weapon or fire­arm to a law enforcement authority for prosecu­tion and forfeiture.

1273. Allowing minors to possess fire­arms.
A.

B.

C. It shall be unlawful for any child to possess any of the arms or weapons designated in Sec­tion 1272 of this title, except rifles or shotguns used for participation in hunting animals or fowl, hunter safety classes, target shooting, skeet, trap or other recognized sporting event.

Nothing contained in any provision of this sub­section shall be construed to authorize or allow any person in control of any place described in paragraph 1, 2, 3, 5 or 6 of subsection A of this section to establish any policy or rule that has the effect of prohibiting any person in lawful pos­session of a concealed handgun license from possession of a handgun allowable under such license in places described in paragraph a, b, c or d of this subsection.

Nothing contained in any provision of this sub­section shall be construed to limit the authority of any college or university in this state from tak­ing administrative action against any student for any violation of any provision of this subsection.

The procedure for applying for a concealed handgun license and processing the application shall be as follows:

1. An eligible person may request an applica­tion packet for a concealed handgun license from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investiga­tion or the county sheriffs office either in person or by mail. The Bureau may provide application packets to each sheriff not exceeding two hun­dred packets per request. The Bureau shall pro­vide the following information in the application packet:

a. an application form,
b. procedures to follow to process the applica­tion form,and
c. a copy of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act with any modifications thereto;

2. The person shall be required to successful­ly complete a firearms safety and training course from a firearms instructor who is approved and registered in this state as provided in Section 1290.14 of this title, and the person shall be re­quired to demonstrate competency and qualifi­cation with a pistol authorized for concealed carry by the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act.

The original certificate of training shall be submitted with the application for a handgun license. No duplicate, copy, facsimile or other reproduction of the certificate of training or exemption from training shall be acceptable as proof of training as required by the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act. A person exempt from the training requirements as provided in Section 1290.15 of this title must show the required proof of such exemption to the firearms instruct­or to receive an exemption certificate.
The origi­nal exemption certificate must be submitted with the application for a handgun license when the person claims an exemption from training and qualification;

3. The application form shall be completed and delivered by the applicant, in person, to the sheriff of the county wherein the applicant resides;

4. The person shall deliver to the sheriff at the time of delivery of the completed application form a fee of One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) for processing the application through the Oklaho­ma State Bureau of Investigation and processing the required fingerprints through the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The processing fee shall be in the form of:

a. a money order or a cashier’s check made payable to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, or
b. by a nationally recognized credit card is­sued to the applicant. For purposes of this para­graph, “nationally recognized credit card” means any instrument or device, whether known as a credit card, credit plate, charge plate, or by any other name, issued with or without fee by the is­suer for the use of the cardholder in obtaining goods, services, or anything else of value on credit which is accepted by over one thousand merchants in the state. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation shall determine which nationally recognized credit cards will be ac­cepted by the Bureau. The processing fee shall not be refundable in the event of a denial of a handgun license or any suspension or revocation subsequent to the is­suance of a license. Persons making application for a firearms instructor shall not be required to pay the application fee as provided in this sec­tion, but shall be required to pay the costs pro­vided in paragraphs 6 and 8 of this subsection;

5. The completed application form shall be signed by the applicant in person before the sheriff. The signature shall be given voluntarily upon a sworn oath that the person knows the contents of the application and that the informa­tion contained in the application is true and cor­rect. Any person making any false or misleading statement on an application for a handgun li­cense shall, upon conviction, be guilty of perjury as defined by Section 491 of this title. Any con­viction shall be punished as provided in Section 500 of this title. In addition to a criminal convic­tion, the person shall be denied the right to have a concealed handgun license pursuant to the provisions of Section 1290.10 of this title and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation shall revoke the handgun license, if issued;

6. Two passport size photographs of the appl­icant shall be submitted with the completed ap­plication. The cost of the photographs shall be the responsibility of the applicant. The sheriff is authorized to take the applicant’s photograph for purposes of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act and, if such photographs are taken by the sheriff the cost of the photographs shall not exceed Ten Dollars ($10.00) for the two photos. All money received by the sheriff from photograph­ing applicants pursuant to the provisions of this paragraph shall be retained by the sheriff and deposited into the Sheriffs Service Fee Account;

7. The sheriff shall witness the signature of the applicant and review or take the photo­graphs of the applicant and shall verify that the person making application for a handgun license is the same person in the photographs sub­mitted and the same person who signed the ap­plication form. Proof of a valid Oklahoma driver license with a photograph of the applicant or an Oklahoma State photo identification for the ap­plicant shall be required to be presented by the applicant to the sheriff for verification of the per­son’s identity;

8. Upon verification of the identity of the appli­cant, the sheriff shall take two complete sets of fingerprints of the applicant. Both sets of finger­prints shall be submitted by the sheriff with the completed application, certificate of training or an exemption certificate, photographs and pro­cessing fee to the Oklahoma State Bureau of In­vestigation within fourteen (14) days of taking the fingerprints. The cost of the fingerprints shall be paid by the applicant and shall not exceed Twenty-five Dollars ($25.00) for the two sets. All fees collected by the sheriff from taking finger­prints pursuant to the provisions of this para­graph shall be retained by the sheriff and de­posited into the Sheriff’s Service Fee Account:

9. The sheriff shall submit to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation within the four­teen-day period, together with the completed ap­plication, certificate of training or exemption cer­tificate, photographs, processing fee and finger­prints, a report of information deemed pertinent to an investigation of the applicant for a handgun license. The sheriff shall make a preliminary in­vestigation of pertinent information about the ap­plicant and the court clerk shall assist the sheriff in locating pertinent information in court records for this purpose. If no pertinent information is found to exist either for or against the applicant, the sheriff shall so indicate in the report;

10. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investiga­tion, upon receipt of the application and required
information from the sheriff, shall forward one full set of fingerprints of the applicant to the Fed­eral Bureau of Investigation for a national crimi­nal history records search. The cost of process­ing the fingerprints nationally shall be paid from the processing fee collected by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation;

11. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investiga­tion shall make a reasonable effort to investigate the information submitted by the applicant and the sheriff, to ascertain whether or not the issu­ance of a handgun license would be in violation of the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act. The Bureau’s investigation of an applicant shall include, but shall not be limited to: a state­wide criminal history records search, a national criminal history records search, a Federal Bur­eau of Investigation fingerprint search, and if ap­plicable, an investigation of medical records or other records or information deemed by the Bur­eau to be relevant to the application.

a. In the course of the Bureau’s investigation, it shall present the name of the applicant along with any known aliases, the address of the appli­cant and the social security number of the appli­cant to the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services. The Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services shall respond within ten (10) days of receiving such information to the Bureau as follows:

(1) with a “Yes” answer, if the Department’s records indicate that the person was involuntar­ily committed to a mental institution in Oklaho­ma, or
(2) with a “No” answer, if there are no records indicating the name of the person as a person involuntarily committed to a mental institution in Oklahoma, or
(3) with an “Inconclusive” answer if the De­partment’s records suggest the applicant may be a formerly committed person. In the case of an inconclusive answer, the Bureau shall ask the applicant whether he or she was involuntarily committed. If the applicant states under penalty of perjury that he or she has not been involuntar­ily committed, the Bureau shall continue pro­cessing the application for a license.

b. In the course of the Bureau’s investigation, it shall check the name of any applicant who is twenty-eight (28) years of age or younger along with any known aliases, the address of the appli­cant and the social security number of the appli­cant against the records in the Juvenile Online Tracking System (JOLTS) of the Office of Juve­nile Affairs. The Office of Juvenile Affairs shall provide the Bureau direct access to check the applicant against the records available on JOLTS.

(1) If the Bureau finds a record on the JOLTS that indicates the person was adjudicated a de­linquent for an offense that would constitute a felony offense if committed by an adult within the last ten (10) years the Bureau shall deny the license,

(2) If the Bureau finds no record on the JOLTS indicating the named person was adjudi­cated delinquent for an offense that would cons­titute a felony offense if committed by an adult within the last ten (10) years, or

(3) If the records suggest the applicant may have been adjudicated delinquent for an offense that would constitute a felony offense if com­mitted by an adult but such record is inconclu­sive, the Bureau shall ask the applicant whether he or she was adjudicated a delinquent for an offense that would constitute a felony offense if committed by an adult within the last ten (10) years. If the applicant states under penalty of perjury that he or she was not adjudicated a de­linquent within ten (10) years, the Bureau shall continue processing the application for a license;

12. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investiga­tion shall either issue a concealed handgun li­cense or deny the application within ninety (90) days of the date of receipt of the required infor­mation from the sheriff. The Bureau shall ap­prove an applicant who appears to be in full compliance with the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act, if completion of the federal fingerprint search is the only reason for delay of the issuance of the handgun license to that ap­plicant. Upon receipt of the federal fingerprint search information, if the Bureau receives in­formation which precludes the person from hav­ing a concealed handgun license, the Bureau shall revoke the concealed handgun license pre­viously issued to the applicant. The Bureau shall deny a license when the applicant fails to prop­erly complete the application form or application process or is determined not to be eligible as specified by the provisions of Section 1290.9, 1290.10or1290.11 of this title. The Bureau shall approve an application in all other cases. If an application is denied, the Bureau shall notify the applicant in writing of its decision. The notifica­tion shall state the grounds for the denial and in­form the applicant of the right to an appeal as may be provided by the provisions of the Admin­istrative Procedures Act. Any administrative hearing on a denial which may be provided shall be conducted by a hearing examiner appointed by the Bureau. The hearing examiner’s decision shall be a final decision appealable to a district court in accordance with the Administrative Pro­cedures Act. When an application is approved, the Bureau shall issue the license and mail it to the sheriff of the county wherein the applicant resides. The applicant may pick up the con­cealed handgun license from the sheriff’s office.
B. Nothing contained in any provision of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act shall be construed to require or authorize the registration, docu­mentation or providing of serial numbers with re­gard to any firearm. For purposes of the Oklaho­ma Self-Defense Act, the sheriff may designate a person to receive, fingerprint, photograph or otherwise process applications for concealed handgun licenses.

1290.17. Suspension and revocation of license.

A. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investiga­tion shall have authority pursuant to the provi­sions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act and any other provision of law to suspend or revoke any concealed handgun license issued pursuant to the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act. A person whose license has been sus­pended or revoked or against whom a fine has been assessed shall be entitled to an appeal through a hearing in accordance with the Admin­istrative Procedures Act. Any administrative hearing on suspensions, revocations or fines shall be conducted by a hearing examiner ap­pointed by the Bureau. The hearing examiner’s decision shall be a final decision appealable to a district court in accordance with the Administra­tive Procedures Act. After a concealed handgun license has been issued, the discovery of or the occurrence of any condition which directly af­fects a person’s eligibility for a handgun license as provided by the provisions of Section 1290.9 or
1290.10 of this title shall require a revocation of the license by the Bureau.

The discovery of or the occurrence of any condition pursuant to Sec­tion 1290.11 of this title, after a license has been issued, shall cause a suspension of the handgun license for a period of time as prescribed for the condition. Any provision of law that requires a revocation of a concealed handgun license upon a conviction shall cause the Bureau to suspend the concealed handgun license upon the discov­ery of the arrest of the person for such offense until a determination of the criminal case at which time the Bureau shall proceed with the ap­propriate administrative action. A licensee may voluntarily surrender a license to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation at any time. Such surrender of a handgun license will render the li­cense invalid. Nothing in this section may be in­terpreted to prevent a subsequent new applica­tion for a license. The licensee shall be informed and acknowledge in writing as follows:

1. The licensee understands that the volun­tary surrender of the license will not be deemed a suspension or revocation by the Bureau;
2. A voluntary surrender of a license will not be reviewable by a hearing examiner or subject to judicial review under the Administrative Pro­cedures Act; and
3. By surrendering the license, the licensee shall forfeit all fees paid to date.

B. Any concealed handgun license which is subsequently suspended or revoked shall be im­mediately returned to the Oklahoma State Bur­eau of Investigation upon notification. Any per­son refusing or failing to return a license after notification of its suspension or revocation shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not exceeding Five Hun­dred Dollars ($500.00), by imprisonment in the county jail for not exceeding six (6) months, or by both such fine and imprisonment. In addition, the person shall be subject to an administrative fine of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00), upon a hearing and determination by the Bureau that the person is in violation of the provisions of this subsection.

C. Any law enforcement officer of this state shall confiscate a concealed handgun license in the possession of any person and return it to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation for ap­propriate administrative proceedings against the licensee when the license is no longer needed as evidence in any criminal proceeding, as follows:
1. Upon the arrest of the person for any felony offense;
2. Upon the arrest of the person for any mis­demeanor offense enumerated as a preclusion to a handgun license;
3. For any violation of the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act;
4. When the officer has been called to assist or is investigating any situation which would be a preclusion to having a handgun license; or
5. As provided in subsection D of Section 1290.8 of this title.

D. Any administrative fine assessed in ac­cordance with the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act shall be paid in full within thirty (30) days of assessment. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation shall, without a hearing, suspend the concealed carry license of any per­son who fails to pay in full any administrative fine assessed against the person in accordance with the provisions of this subsection. The sus­pension of any concealed carry license shall be automatic and shall begin thirty (30) days from the date of the assessment of the administrative fine. The suspension shall be removed and the concealed carry license returned to its prior standing upon payment of the administrative fine being paid in full to the Bureau.

E. Whenever a concealed carry license has been suspended in accordance with the provi­sions of this act or the administrative rules of the Bureau promulgated for purposes of this act, the
license shall remain under suspension and shall not be reinstated until:
1. The person whose license has been sus­pended applies for reinstatement in accordance with the administrative rules of the Bureau. The Bureau shall not charge any fee in conjunction with an application for a license reinstatement. The person whose license has been suspended must demonstrate that the condition or preclu­sion which was the basis for the suspension has lapsed and is no longer in effect; and
2. Any and all administrative fines assessed against the person have been paid in full.
In the event a concealed carry license expires during the term of the suspension, the person shall be required to apply for renewal of the li­cense in accordance with Section 1290.5 of this title.

Information provided by the person on an application for a concealed handgun license shall be confidential except to law enforcement officers or law enforcement agencies.

1290.22. Business owner’s rights.

Nothing contained in any provision of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act, Section 1290.1 et seq. of this title, shall be construed to limit, restrict or prohibit in any manner the existing rights of any person, property owner, tenant, employer, or business entity to control the possession of weapons on any property owned or controlled by the person or business entity.

1290.25. Legislative intent.

The Legislature finds as a matter of public policy and fact that it is necessary to provide statewide uniform stan­dards for issuing licenses to carry concealed handguns for lawful self-defense and self-pro­tection, and further finds it necessary to occupy the field of regulation of the bearing of conceal­ed handguns to ensure that no honest, law-abid­ing citizen who qualifies pursuant to the provi­sions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act, Sec­tion 1290.1 et seq. of this title, is subjectively or arbitrarily denied his or her rights. The Legisla­ture does not delegate to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation any authority to regulate or restrict the issuing of licenses except as pro­vided by the provisions of this act. Subjective or arbitrary actions or rules which encumber the is­suing process by placing burdens on the ap­plicant beyond those requirements detailed in the provisions of the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act or which create restrictions beyond those speci­fied in this act are deemed to be in conflict with the intent of this act and are hereby prohibited. The Oklahoma Self-Defense Act shall be liberal­ly construed to carry out the constitutional right to bear arms for self-defense and self-protection. The provisions of the Oklahoma Self- Defense Act are cumulative to existing rights to bear arms and nothing in Section 1290.1 et seq. of this title shall impair or diminish those rights.
However, the conditions that mandate the ad­ministrative actions of license denial, suspen­sion, revocation or an administrative fine are in­tended to protect the health, safety and public welfare of the citizens of this state. The restrict­ing conditions specified in the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act generally involve the criminal his­tory, mental state, alcohol or substance abuse of the applicant or licensee, a hazard of domestic violence, a danger to police officers, or the abil­ity of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investiga­tion to properly administer the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act. The restricting conditions that establish a risk of injury or harm to the public are tailored to reduce the risks to the benefit of the citizens of this state.

1290.26. Reciprocal agreement authority.

The State of Oklahoma hereby recognizes any valid concealed carry weapons permit or license issued by another state, provided the issuing
state recognizes this state’s concealed handgun license and the reciprocal state:
1. Requires a state and national criminal his­tory records search to be conducted on each applicant;
2. Prohibits any person convicted of a felony offense from obtaining a concealed carry wea­pons permit or license;
3. Requires competence qualification, or train­ing with the firearm to be carried by the person;
and
4. Does not authorize any weapon to be car­ried which would be a violation of Oklahoma law.
Any person entering this state in possession of a firearm authorized for concealed carry upon
the authority of a reciprocal state is authorized to continue to carry a concealed firearm in this state; provided the firearm remains fully conceal­ed from detection and view, and that upon com­ing in contact with any peace officer of this state, the person discloses the fact that he or she is in possession of a concealed firearm pursuant to a valid concealed carry weapons permit or license issued in another state.

 

Forgotten Fighter  by James Kisner

 

“In World War II,” he whispered, “I was wounded by a blast.”
As he began his story, reminiscing of his past.

“I was just a boy back then, I lied about my age.”
“To get into the army, and …. fight for the U.S.A.”

“I love this country very much, it’s still the very best.”
“And I would fight, to keep it free, and safe from foreign pest.”

“We won that war, and I came home, my wounds had healed enough,
To re-enlist with other men.” “The army made us tough.”

“Then a little flare up, in Korea called us out.”
“A threat against our freedom, spreading fear without a doubt.”

“There I caught a bullet, when I tried to save a friend.”
“Another wound, for Uncle Sam, they sent me home to mend.”

“Soldier, have you had enough? My sergeant said to me.”
“Or, do you want another tour, if ever there’s to be?”

“We would train and fight again, if ever ….. it need be.”
“Because we love America, we’ll fight to keep it free.”

“It didn’t take too long, before my boys were off again.”
“We were shipped off to a war, we thought would never end.”

“I didn’t understand it much, if it was wrong or right.”
“But ….. I was a U.S. soldier, and my country said “Go fight.”

“I never questioned orders, that were sent from up above.”
“I did it for America, the country, that I love.”

“I fought to keep my country safe, again, in Viet Nam.”
“Then, wounded I came home again, a victim of napalm.”

“My fighting days were over now, and I had given all.”
“But some had given more than me, their names are on a wall.”

“I am now, well up in years, a soldier old and worn.”
“I could only sit and pray, as I watched Desert Storm.”

“So proud of our boys over there, who stand for what is right.”
“Freedom is the battle cry, the reason why they fight.”

“Young soldiers fight for liberty, protecting freedoms bliss.”
“Old soldiers dream of by-gone-days, while fighting loneliness.”

“We were heroes in our day,” He said, and then he sighed.
“Forgotten in some V.A. home, and all my friends have died.”

Subject:  A fair compromise on the flag burning issue

 

The Flag: To Those Who Want To Burn the Flag, Just ask permission!

Does the First Amendment give us the right to desecrate the American flag? Or
is the flag a sacred symbol of our nation, deserving protection by law? Tough call?

 The Solution

For those who want to light Old Glory on fire, stomp all over it, or spit on it to make some sort of “statement,” I say let them do it.  But under one condition:  they MUST get permission from three sponsors.

First, you need permission of a war veteran….Perhaps a Marine who fought at
Iwo Jima?  The American flag was raised over Mount Surabachi upon the bodies
of thou-sands of dead buddies. Each night spent on Iwo meant half of everyone
you knew would be dead tomorrow, a coin flip away from a bloody end upon a
patch of sand your mother couldn’t find on a map. Or maybe ask a Vietnam vet
who spent years tortured in a small, filthy cell unfit for a dog. Or a Korean War soldier who helped rescue half a nation from Communism, or a Desert Storm warrior who repulsed a blood dictator from raping and pillaging an innocent country.

That flag represented your mother and father, your sister and brother, your
friends, neighbors, and everyone at home.  I wonder what they would say if
someone asked them permission to burn the American flag?

Next, you need a signature from an immigrant.  Their brothers and sisters may
still languish in their native land, often under tyranny, poverty and misery.
 Or maybe they died on the way here, never to touch our shores. Some have
seen friends and family get tortured and murdered by their own govern- ment
for daring to do things we take for granted every day. For those who risked
everything simply for the chance to become an American,  what kind of feelings do they have for the flag when they Pledge Allegiance the first time?  Go to a naturalization ceremony and see for yourself, the tears of pride, the thanks, the love and respect of this nation, as they finally embrace the American flag as their own.  Ask one of them if it would be OK to tear up the flag.

Last, you should get the signature of a mother.  Not just any mother. You need a mother of someone who gave their life for America.  It doesn’t even have to be from a war.  It could be a cop.  Or a fireman. Maybe a Secret Service or DEA agent.  Then again, it could be a common foot soldier as well. When that son or daughter is laid to rest, their family is given one gift by the American people;  an American flag.  Go on.  I dare you!  Ask that mother to spit on her flag.

Away from family, away from the precious shores of home, in the face of over-
whelming odds and often in the face of death, the American flag inspires those who believe in the American dream, the American promise, the American vision…
Americans who don’t appreciate the flag don’t appreciate this nation. And those who appreciate this nation appreciate the American flag. So if you want to desecrate the American flag, before you spit on it or before you burn it,
I have a simple request.

Just ask permission. Not from the Constitution.  Not from some obscure law.
Not from the politicians or the pundits.  Instead, ask those who defended our
nation so that we may be free today.  Ask those who  struggled to reach our
shores so that they may join us in the American dream. And ask those who
clutch a flag in place of their sacrificed sons and daughters, given to this
nation so that others may be free.

For we cannot ask permission from those who died wishing they could,
just once … or once again … see, touch or kiss the flag that stands
for our nation, the United States of America … the greatest nation on
earth.

What is a vet? 

He is the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating two gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carriers didn’t run out of fuel.

He is the barroom loudmouth, dumber than five wooden planks, whose overgrown frat-boy behavior is outweighed a hundred times in the cosmic scales by four hours of exquisite bravery near the 38th parallel.

She – or he – is the nurse who fought against futility and went to sleep sobbing every night for two solid years in Da Nang.

He is the POW who went away one person and came back another – or didn’t come back AT ALL.

He is the Quantico drill instructor who has never seen combat – but has saved countless lives by turning slouchy, no-account rednecks and gang members into Marines, and teaching them to watch each other’s backs.

He is the parade – riding Legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and medals with a prosthetic hand.

He is the career quartermaster who watches the ribbons and medals pass him by.

He is the three anonymous heroes in The Tomb Of The Unknowns, whose presence at the Arlington National Cemetery must forever preserve the memory of all the anonymous heroes whose valor dies unrecognized with them on the battlefield or in the ocean’s sunless deep.

He is the old guy bagging groceries at the supermarket – palsied now and aggravatingly slow – who helped liberate a Nazi death camp and who wishes all day long that his wife were still alive to hold him when the nightmares come.

He is an ordinary and yet an extraordinary human being – a person who offered some of his life’s most vital years in the service of his country, and who sacrificed his ambitions so others would not have to sacrifice theirs.

He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and he is nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the finest, greatest nation ever known.

So remember, each time you see someone who has served our country, just lean over and say “Thank You.” That’s all most people need, and in most cases it will mean more than any medals they could have been awarded or were awarded.

Two little words that mean a lot, “THANK YOU”.

A Soldiers Judgment

 

The soldier stood and faced his God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as brightly as his brass.

“Step forward now, you soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?”
The soldier squared his shoulders and
said, “No, Lord, I guess I ain’t
Because those of us who carry guns
Can’t always be a saint.

I’ve had to work most Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I’ve been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I’ve never took a penny
That wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear,
and sometimes, God forgive me,
I’ve wept unmanly tears.

I know I don’t deserve a place
Among the people here,
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.

If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
It needn’t be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don’t, I’ll understand.”

There was a silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God,

“Step forward now, you soldier,
You’ve borne your burdens well,
Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,
You’ve done your time in Hell.”

SOLDIER GIFTS

 

“It is the soldier, not the preacher, who secured our choice of worship”.
“It is the soldier, not the publisher, who gave us freedom of the press”.
“It is the soldier, not the orator, who gained our right of expression”.
“It is the soldier, not the organizer, who insured we can come together”.
“It is because of the soldier, not the lawyer,we have rights to a trial
by jury”.
It is our soldiers who served Old Glory, whose graves we mark with that
Heavenly Banner, who allow the protester to burn our Stars & Stripes!”
Please be mindful on Christmas Day of the supreme sacrifice of
over 2,000,000 service men & women who put on a uniform and went to do
what many feared and fled from, that we might enjoy life today as free
Americans. Thank God for Americans who more than self, our country
love.”
