Becky is a conservative citizen activist who grew up in the 1980's Reagan era. During that time it was not unusual for American's to hear a great deal about the Cold War and to be concerned about the possibility of a nuclear war. When the Cold War ended, American entered an era of peace and prosperity. Becky got married and raised four children. For thirty years she voted regularly but otherwise did not pay much attention to what was happening in the world around her.

In 2010, with her children grown, Becky realized that the world had changed and that her beloved nation had changed with it. Conservative values had given way to an entitlement mentality and the freedoms she was born with were being eroded away by the Robin Hood tactics and the glutinous appetites of the ever expanding government. She realized that it was past time for her to get involved in the cause of liberty.

Becky became a campaign volunteer and set out to support candidates who were for limited government and a return to personal liberty and responsibility. Soon she found employment with Cor Strategies, a Chicago based company that manages communications, operations, and technology for political campaigns. Cor Strategies allowed her to fully utilize her organizational talents to help good candidates get elected to office and fully supported her other endeavors to grow, learn, and fight the good fight to protect and defend the Constitution.

Becky also became a precinct committeewoman, a Lincoln Series Fellow, an NRA member, and a staunch supporter of her second amendment rights. To that end she helped form the Illinois Gun Owners PACand worked to support liberty minded second amendment advocates. The PAC's inaugural event, Ladies, Locked 'n Loaded, was hugely successful and included firearms training for women by Jan Morgan, nationally recognized second amendment advocate and NRA certified instructor.

Becky currently makes her home in Illinois, where she continues to fight for the cause of reasonable conceal carry legislation in the only state not to recognize this constitutional right. She works to hone her shooting skills and to fight for true liberty. Becky enjoys getting together with a group of friends, who affectionately call themselves the New Inklings, to break bread and participate in stimulating conversation. Her first grandchild was born in February of 2013. Her four grown children are a source of pride and joy and Becky spends as much time with them as she can.

Common Sense Does Not Prevail

For the past five years I have lived in an almost constant state of incredulity. I was dismayed when Obama was elected for the first time. Of course, then, I had no idea just how bad things could get. When […]

The Mental Health Dilemma

The Mental Health Dilemma

From January of 1989 to July of 2003 there were a dozen mass murders committed in America. This time frame does not have any particular significance. I simply picked a dozen incidents to understand what the connections were, what these […]

The Lies That Bind Us

The Lies That Bind Us

The Obama administration is very fond of telling us how we feel about what they are doing. For instance, Obama recently made the claim that 90% of Americans agree with him about gun control. It would stand to reason, then, […]

Safety or Tryanny?

Liberty is a thing that each generation must fight to preserve. It is not easily handed down to our posterity. Every generation has its bullies and radicals. As Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away […]

The Salmon Rule

A Michigan Democrat by the name of John D. Dingell once said “I’ll let you write the substance…you let me write the procedure, and I’ll screw you every time.” Representative Matt Salmon, a Republican from Arizona, has proposed a new, […]

Hunting Humans

Hunting Humans

In her latest insane rant, Senator Dianne Feinstein is upset because, while there is a three round limit to hunt ducks, apparently there is no such restriction on human hunting. Therefore, she insists that we limit magazine capacity. After all, […]

An Open Letter to the Liberal Left Legislators

An Open Letter to the Liberal Left Legislators

Dear Gun Grabbing Legislators, It is obvious to anyone who owns a gun or supports the second amendment rights of all law abiding American citizens that you are poorly educated on the subject of guns, ammunition, mental health issues, and […]

America’s Future?

America’s Future?

There was a time in America when boys could be boys and girls could be girls. Ask anyone over forty and they can tell you how it used to be. At forty-six I can tell you that there were no […]

The Dogs of War

The Dogs of War

Every time I hear the latest anti-American, anti-Constitution ranting of the socialist left about gun control, Shakespeare comes to mind. “Cry havoc, and let slip the dogs of war.” Youtube videos of police and military forces sweeping through New Orleans, […]

All Gun Owners: Call to Action

Unless you have been spending a lot of time deep in the jungles of South America unable to access the outside world, you are aware of the growing push from the liberal, socialist left to severely restrict our second amendment […]
