Welcome to Gonzo's Garage! Lots to see here! this literally is a "garage" full of things like my Firearms page, my Mayflower Heritage pages, and my Go Navy! pages, I am also concentrating more on alerting my community to emergency preparedness, and activities that are geared toward honoring God, protecting liberty, and preserving the rich heritage and founding principles of America. I have recently resurrected the politics blog and the firearms blog, and will continue to post articles there related to emergency preparedness, gun rights, firearms training, and political opinions. Not in the main menu, but I am sneaking in a new page with some of my favorite videos. The list changes frequently, so check back often.
The Values I Hold Precious: Preserving the principles of our nation as a Godly nation, and as set forth in our founding documents - The Declaration of Independence and The U.S. Constitution must be paramount in priority of our lives. I believe in keeping God in our schools, and I believe in protecting the lives of the un-born. Defending our great heritage in firearms (The Second Amendment) and fostering the vast greatness that America has to offer must be our life's endeavor. The picture of George Washington on one knee, praying, is by far my favorite painting in the world, as it captures those very ideas. It's a call to all of us to remember who we are as a country, and do all that we can to help our fellow Americans. Excellence and American exceptionalism are part of our heritage. Self sufficiency and moral responsibility are the very fiber that holds us together. Standing up as a nation of armed citizens is what keeps us free. And as Dr. Martin Luther King taught us: content of character is more important than the color of one's skin. America is great because America is GOOD!
A little about me: After spending a 20-year career in the US Navy, and 6 years teaching full time, I'm now in the cyber-security biz, and spend most of my time researching computer security issues, investigating cyber-incidents, and being an all-around computer geek. When I'm not at work, I spend my time prepping, going to the shooting range, writing political blog articles, and engaging in 2nd amendment activist endeavors. I am an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor (Pistol, PPiTH, RTBAV), US Concealed Carry Association Affiliate Instructor, and an NRA Certified Range Safety Officer. I am a trained and qualified instructor and member of the Fort Collins Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), graduate of the Larimer County Sheriff's Office Citizen's Academy (and Alumni Association Member) and have completed numerous courses in Incident Command Systems practices and procedures. Emergency preparedness and finding ways to protect my community are a big part of my life, and I am always looking for ways to encourage community preparedness. I'm a Law Enforcement Certified AR-15/M-16/M-4A1 Armorer through the American Gunsmithing Institute. If you would like to read more about my personal and professional careers and experiences, please see my resume.
You can now find me on the "Together We Served" Military Forum!
