I just got a call from The Minuteman Civil Defense Corps: my background check cleared and I am now an official volunteer. I’m not sure what kind of duties I’m going to be asked to perform or where, but I am a believer that someone needs to get off their neither-cheeks and get something done.

I thought it was kind of interesting when I first volunteered: They want a $50.00 application fee to volunteer that is waived if you have a current CCW from your home state. I thought “what the hey, something I can get for free that other people have to pay for,” so I went for it.

On the down side, they don’t have a chapter in Michigan, which they implied when I made out the application, but once I have the membership card, and should my travels take me to Texas, Arizona, or southern California, I can just jump in and go into action…..so to speak. Naturally, my CCW is no good in CA, but I believe in don't ask, don't tell.

They have a strict policy of non-interference and firearms for self defense only, but I can live with that. I’m too old to go chasing wetbacks through the desert anyway. I'll just don't ask don't tell 'em.

That's how I lived all these years myself. I never figured I needed a piece of paper, plastic, or permission from some pencilneck to carry my gun. I don't ask and I don't tell has been the way I have always done it.

I've carried lots of times up to now, but when it's finally official in January, I'll probably carry more. Used to be, I'd carry if I was going somewhere I considered a risk. After Jan just about everywhere will be considered risky. (Well it is, you know.)
