“A true outdoorsman is hard to define. It seems simple – much like cooking an egg over easy – but it is, in reality, very difficult.”

A man should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a deer, dive to the depths of the oceans, play an instrument, compose music, balance accounts, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve problems, be a beekeeper, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and hopefully die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” Peter Ferreira is an active supporter of the Constitution and Amendments of the United States of America including the second amendment and all it stands for.

“I have always been an unusual boy… My grandmother told me I had a restless soul, no compass pointing north, a fiery personality and an inner indecisiveness that was as wide and as wavering as the ocean. I don’t worry if people think I’m crazy. I am crazy! I have that kind of intoxicating insanity that lets me dream outside of the lines and become who I’m destined to be.

“I love practical knowledge of nature and apply that knowledge in various skills and actions. I am not a Pinterest survivalist. I love to venture into to the outdoors completely ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at me. I enjoy the feel and smell of a weather change and don’t need to tap on the Weather Channel app to see what is about to happen. Sometimes I get mad at nature, but that goes away quickly once I realize that getting mad won’t do me any good – and it won’t keep me alive. So I adapt. Most humans nowadays just want to fight against nature. They want everything to be square, orderly, warm, soft and dry. They want to defy the outdoors. True outdoorsmen don’t fight it because they understand it just a little bit more than most.”

Life is risky. But the only big risk you should avoid at all costs, is the risk of doing nothing.

A love for the land. A love for the hunt. And a love for family and friends.

The last item I bring up in these conversations is the Second Amendment. The Bill of Rights is an interlinked matrix where one right cannot exist without the others. The First Amendment is crucial yet must be protected by the Second Amendment and vice versa. The 10th Amendment is in jeopardy without the First Amendment and so on. The Second Amendment is intended to allow law abiding citizens of the United States to own firearms. The primary reason for this is to ensure the security of a free state. While some would paint this in the light of only the military having guns, it is specifically intended to allow everyday citizens the ability to protect themselves and their country.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

“It is at this point where we usually encounter the idea that some guns are acceptable, but others are not. Let’s look at the  AR-15 argument for example… Never has an inanimate object been so vilified. While I would assert that the puppeteers behind the anti-gun talking points know this, it is easy to move people by creating a boogeyman if you will. My personal response to this is straightforward. I explain that the AR-15 has been singled out because it is easy to demonize because of the way it looks. People simply do not understand how guns work. The AR-15 is not a military weapon. Nor is it an “assault weapon.” This is also the point at which I encourage people to be free thinkers. I politely show them that the information they have heard regarding these rifles is distorted and, in many cases, a flat-out lie. The anti-gun leaders are exploiting the fact that many people simply do not know any better.”

People own guns for a variety of reasons, but the primary one is personal defense. We are ultimately responsible for our personal defense and the defense of loved ones. Law enforcement might have an obligation to protect you, but they can’t always do that. It is not out of malice but because of logistics. There simply aren’t enough police officers to actively protect the citizens of the country from violence. A firearm allows me to protect myself from dangers, hunting and sport shooting…
