Comedy Corner

Georgia state patrol pulled over an elderly lady for speeding. When the officer approached the car the woman handed him her driver’s license and by mistake her carry permit.

The officer asked if she had any weapons in the car.

The lady replied, “yes sir, i have a 38 in the glove box.”

The officer said, “Any thing else”. The woman replied, “I have a glock in the console”.

The officer said, “Any thing else”. The woman replied, “I have a 380 in my pocket book”.

The officer replied, Ma’am what are you so scared of. The woman replied, “Absolutely Nothing Officer”.

Hey ,Doug
I may be one of few Spanish speaking listeners. I'm in El Paso Texas. Borders with New Mexico and Mexico.
Call me or text me for translations. Free of charge.
It was Tijeras- ( T-her-as) Spanish for scissors. And the pronunciation for Suarez- (su-ar-Es)was right.
Also I have a Keltec sub2000 in 9mm
I bought it as a truck gun in June from Academy. FYI- we have no issues finding these in Texas.

Thank you so much for your podcasts. It is great to listen to people that are like me and "defend the weak" as the Psalms say. I was listening to some of your old podcasts from August where yall mentioned about carrying in church. I thought yall would appreciate this that my pastor was a SWAT and police officer and carries. There are also about a dozen people who carry and a few (including me) that will be when the legal age.

It was pretty cool timing on listening to that podcast, in my Philosophy class at my college (which is a Christian College) we were talking about in this time of evil, what can Christians do and how t explain to non-believers why God lets evil happen. I randomly picked a podcast to listen to while i studied and what you said, and what the question I was dealing with matched up perfectly! God is pretty awesome

Good Morning Troy,
I love the podcast. Thanks to you and Doug for the time you take to share your gun knowledge and the word. I am a huge jeep lover and have often thought it would be great to start a podcast to share jeeps and God.
I come to you from West Grove Pennsylvania.
I have been currently thinking about my church and that we have no security or response team. Would you be able to give me some ideas of where to start and with who to get something like this started without stirring the pot within the church to much.
Thank you,
Keith Binkley

Weekly Bible Verses:
1 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!" 4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.5 And I said: "Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!" 6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for." 8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here I am! Send me." Isaiah 6:1-8 (ESV)

Main Topic
United we stand, divided we fall. ~Aesop

The first attributed use in modern times is to Founding Father John Dickinson in his pre-Revolutionary War song "The Liberty Song", first published in the Boston Gazette in July 1768. In the song Dickinson wrote: "Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall!" Kentucky entered the Union on June 1, 1792. A little over six months later, on December 20, 1792, the first Kentucky General Assembly adopted the official seal of the Commonwealth, including the state motto, United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

'United We Stand' license plate designed by Troy Wingard for the South Carolina Department of Public Safety in 2002

Patrick Henry used the phrase in his last public speech, given in March 1799, in which he denounced The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions. Clasping his hands and swaying unsteadily, Henry declaimed, "Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs." At the end of his oration, Henry fell into the arms of bystanders and was carried almost lifeless into a nearby tavern. Two months afterward, he died.

John 10:10 (ASV) The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have [it] abundantly.

Atlanta Woman Exercises her Right to Defend her Livelihood
Posted at 9:25 pm on September 22, 2016 by Beth Baumann
Last week Friday, three men kicked in an Atlanta, Georgia suburb home around 4 a.m. The first burglar was met by a female homeowner who reached for her firearm. The woman fatally shot the initial intruder, 28-year-old Antonio Leaks, in the torso. The other two suspects returned fire before fleeing the scene.
The home invasion was caught on security cameras from inside the woman’s home. “It’s not common that we receive this caliber of surveillance video showing the crime unfold, an actual home invasion,” Cpl. Deon Washington with the Gwinnett County Police Department said.
“She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property,” Washington said.
Gwinnett, Georgia police are relying on the surveillance video to identify and apprehend the two men who remain at large. Both men are described as African American, between 20 and 30 and around six feet tall.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Gwinnett Police Department at 770-513-5300. Anonymous tips can be left with Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS.
