Shooting is a serious sport, a firm grip, total breathing control, strong stance, and motivation

    Shooting a target in a relatively calm atmosphere, or a hostile environment, has limits on hitting the intended target, proper sight aiming, proper stance , left or right foot forward, strong or weak foot forward , or side by side, facing forward or too the side, is all in the ability to control ones own self, and too put all risk aside, In the pursuit of personal safety and those of others, the standing order of the day, never give an inch for life and liberty of ones own self and of that of others.

    Owning a firearm is the right of all, regardless if you don't practice with it.

    Just FYI, these are some common misconceptions about the 2nd Amendment and the right to own firearms (some of which, even I used to have and have been educated by even other members on this forum).

    1) The Constitution doesn't grant rights, it just highlights what rights every free person should have. Being alive and in America gives you these rights and they are granted by God. No man can take these rights from you.

    2) The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with hunting, sport or even self defense. These are already outlined in "Life, Liberty and the Persuit of Happiness" section of the Declaration of Independence and how "all men are created equal". The 2nd Amendment is so that the government doesn't become too powerful, overstep and become oppressive to the people. Arms gives the people the power to rise up and revolt against the government if they no longer follow the will of the people. It is the duty of every American to know how to use arms and they may be asked to protect their country (from all enemies, foreign and domestic). To protect your country and your fellow countrymen from tyranny was the intent of the 2nd Amendment- to defend all your rights...not just the right to shoot IDPA.
