"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States."
-- NOAH WEBSTER - 1888

"Arms are the only true badge of liberty. The possession of arms is the distinction of a free man from a slave."

Duaine was never in law enforcement, but he served his country and he's worked in the security industry. He holds several shooting titles, but doesn't really remember learning to shoot. Growing up on a farm, guns were just another tool. When he first became involved with the fight to exercise the right to carry concealed in Missouri, he decided to share some of his knowledge with others, free of charge. We hope you enjoy 2 Possess & Bear Arms.
