The Virginia gubernatorial is a race to watch.  On November 2, 2021, Virginia will elect a new governor.  The race is between anti-gun former Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe and Republican challenger Glenn Youngkin.  Virginia has become a blue state and McAuliffe should be a shoo-in but he is getting a lot of push back from Second Amendment supporters.  Just to add fuel to the fire, if McAuliffe wins, he will bring with him anti-gun Attorney General Mark Herring.  This will be Herring’s third term if elected.

The cool winds of Fall are sweeping across the cities, towns, villages and prairies of Illinois.  The grain harvest is progressing although slowed by rain in certain areas.  On the 20th, the Hunter’s Full Moon will be at its zenith.  Deer will be running everywhere so be careful out there.

The FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2020 is out.  In 2020, legally armed citizens killed more criminals than the police.  Armed citizens killed 343 criminals and the police killed 298 criminals.  There are differences between the two numbers.  I don't have the exact figures but when a legally armed citizen kills a criminal he or she is in defense of their own life or the life of another.  They are stopping a crime and they are also preventing further crimes from being committed.  In the case where the police have to arrest someone and they are shot and killed, it is because they have already committed a crime and have left victims who have been killed, injured, maimed, mentally injured or in some cases, scarred for life.  Seldom are the police able to intervene during the commission of a crime.

The numbers of FOID cards and Illinois Concealed Carry Licenses (ICCL) keep rising In Illinois.  The same is true in other states.  These facts come as no surprise.  The United States is fast becoming a mess with an estimated 1,234,183 people who have crossed our borders illegally since Biden took office.  By the time you read this, that figure will be out of date.  When asked how many of these people had criminal records, one Biden Administration official said he did not know.  My guess is they do know but it is better to look incompetent than face the rath of the American people if the truth were known.  Of course, these people are being transported to your neighborhood, or a neighborhood near you, free of charge.  Well, it is free to them, you and I are paying for it.  Trust me, this may be the cheapest part of this fiasco.  I imagine we will be on the hook for a century.  Haiti and Mexico are nearly 2000 miles apart and separated by open sea.  So how did some 15,000 Haitians get to Mexico?  Someone is helping them.  Now, I wonder who that could be?

When American citizens are asked about Washington D.C., the term “swamp” comes to mind.  The question is what is the swamp?  How does it manifest itself to influence American life?  A really good example has come out of the National Archives.
