Historic Profile: Jeff Cooper

a jeff cooper quote on holophobia
“Los Angeles and Ho Chi Minh City have declared themselves sister cities. It makes sense: they are both Third World metropolises formerly occupied by Americans.”
-Col. Jeff Cooper
“One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that ‘violence begets violence.’ I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does…. that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.”
Colonel John Dean “Jeff” Cooper was a trailblazing icon in the techniques of defensive firearms usage. He was also a champion of the philosophy behind it. Many of his quotes, even a decade after his passing, generate a certain reverence for his insight. More precisely for its irreverence for modern, popular political perspectives. He represents a dwindling population that has no toleration for nonsense and calls it out at any opportunity.
“Bushido is all very well in its way, but it is no match for a 30-06.”
-Col. Jeff Cooper
Like an eccentric uncle that creates awkward silences at Thanksgiving, Jeff delivered his views to the public like a kick to the teeth. An individual like this should bless every family. If you had the privilege to grow up with a family member who says what’s on their mind, without regard, then you know what I’m talking about. Watching overly sensitive youngins and privileged progressives get slapped in the face with reality, from someone who served and knows what conflict really is. It provides a necessary balance. The collective family of American gun rights proponents keenly feel his loss.
