Timothy Smith (Theodore Jamison) R.I.P.

It is with some sadness that I must report the passing of my friend Tim Smith AKA Theodore Jamison on Periscope and Twitter.

I say “some sadness” because Tim was an eternally optimistic and solid guy.

Tim was a biker. He loved his Harley. You couldn’t really know him unless you understood motorcycles and the rebel culture.

He was in a terrible accident some years ago and was in traction for some time. He was very resilient. He lived many years with chronic diseases but never gave into dark thoughts.

I always will remember him in good spirits. It was his most admirable quality, his good humor.

A native of Minnesota, he was a psychotic Green Bay Packers fan. I used to chide him that I didn’t know that baseball team.

Our point of commonality was the conservative movement that goes back to Bill Buckley and Ronald Reagan. Tim was a DIE HARD conservative. He was also 100% behind Donald Trump.

He fondly remembered the many MAGA meetups he attended where most of the attendees had their faces in their phones for the duration and never talked to him. He told me Read More...

R.I.P. William Colvard

I met William Colvard at the Atlanta MAGA meetup back in 2017. Bill was a Trump supporter and a Christian conservative. He was also my friend.

Over the years Bill and I would talk regularly by phone and DM. When I didn’t hear from him for a week or so I tried to find out what the situation was.

I am sad to report that he passed away May 12, 2020.

Bill was a very private guy so people should not be stunned that his passing came as a surprise.

I respected his privacy and his confidences, as he did mine. He was that kind of man – quiet and decent.

Suffice it to say, he was one of those people that reminded me that some people can be good and I will miss him terribly. What better way to remember him than with a passage from the New Testament:

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; and it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

The Passing of James D. Surdo Jr.

It is with much sadness I can report that Jimmy Surdo has passed away.

Jimmy was a fixture at Westside Range, as well as in the gun community in New York City’s five boroughs.

Jimmy was the force behind the Chelsea Gun Club as well as a resource and advocate for lawful gun ownership in the City.

During the course of his life he wore many hats. From Law Enforcement to civilian gun advocate to family man. But the one hat I shall always remember was the one of “friend”.

My condolences to the family that he leaves behind.
