Gun Ownership Regulation Concept: "Regulation of Gun Ownership by Law Enforcement"

Hello All,

I do not own any personal firearms but as a tween I did go practice shooting with my father decades ago. I shot a variety of handguns and a couple of rifle models. Such as the: M1 rifle, 256 Caliber rifle, 256 Caliber pistol, 38 revolver, 357 Magnum, and a Walter PPK. So I have handled a firearm just its been decades ago.

When mentioning gun ownership of personal firearms in America its almost asking for trouble. Entering the deep end of the swimming pool of controversy where as a polarized issue hardly no middle ground exists. Those abroad reading my blog will think Americans are ludicrous for having personal firearms. To a point I would agree with you although America was born out of a bloody revolution historically. Besides expanded its borders to the south in the 19th century in a war with Mexico as well. When such a responsibility of gun ownership gets enshrined into one's Federal Constitution as a Republic its there for keeps.

In such a mindset my concept for legislators and/or law enforcement who deal with such issues on a daily basis. Is to weigh into the moderate ground which only a foothold barely exists. I say keep your personal firearms but prove it that your responsible in using and maintaining them. Otherwise just saying so means a hill of beans in this society of bureaucracy and red tape.

The "Regulation of Gun Ownership by Law Enforcement" is intended to be modeled after how Americans are certified by license to drive any sort of vehicle class on our thoroughfares. Meaning how driving a vehicle is a privilege in America versus gun ownership is a Constitutional right. Well if a privilege gets all sorts of competency testing and proof of vehicle maintenance. Than how much more should a Right in Gun Ownership should receive competency testing and proof of personal firearm maintenance? If its good enough for your car its good enough for your collection of firearms. Like they say guns don't kill people, well neither do cars kill people, but that shit still happens. When fatal accidents occur on the roads or someone pulls the trigger aiming in your general direction. For those who are my International readers yes it's an absurd phrase we sometimes use in America. That guns don't kill people, common sense speaks loudly otherwise.

When being pulled over by police for a vehicular infraction such as: a wrongful turn during a red light, speeding past an intersection with traffic lights or stop signs, a broken or poorly lit tail light, excessive pollution out of a vehicle's exhaust, openly playing one's stereo music player obscenely high, DUI (Driving Under the Influence), and improper or missing license tags. These are various examples law enforcement have to deal with across America if not the world with countries with a robust system of the rule of law.

During a routine traffic stop most police will ask the driver or passengers if a firearm is on board. If so, to only point where the weapon is located and not to reach for it themselves. Where the police officer asks the gun owner to display their permit to carry a firearm be it openly or concealed.

Now I would like to list a 6 Point Infraction System similar to a point system for poor drivers in America. These are possible infractions for owners of personal firearms that mishandle their weapon out in public. Similar to the aforementioned traffic stop where if a weapon is present as declared by a driver or passenger. They can be screened by a police officer for the following potential infractions listed below.

1) Is the declared firearm be it a handgun or rifle in good visual maintenance? Removing the ammunition if loaded and possibly dismantling and reassembling the firearm by the police officer to inspect it for good maintenance practice.

2) When the firearm be it a handgun or rifle when handed over to the police officer by the gun owner for visual inspection. Is the firearm in its Safety Lock position? If not that's an infraction when its being carried or stored.

3) Does the firearm have the right type of ammunition for its caliber? How much ammunition is being carried overall? (There can be a quota on how much ammo is enough to being carried out in public) Is the ammunition regular use or of an illegal variant such as cop killer armor piercing rounds?

4) Does the firearm have a pre-existing round already cocked into the firing chamber? Be it a handgun or pump action shot gun that can be an infraction. Having a readied firearm is one thing, but having it ready for a pre-emptive strike is another.

5) Does the firearm have a scratched off serial number? If so in today's current laws this is an automatic forfeiture of the weapon in question. Besides a potential felony if the weapon was used in the commission of a crime when its tested at ballistics.

6) Is the firearm be it a handgun or rifle fully loaded or is it unloaded when handed to a police officer for a visual inspection?

A) It could be required by law that all firearms carried by citizens must remain unloaded. If in jeopardy of self-defense a magazine clip handgun is easy enough to load. If not a replacement speed loader for a revolver handgun can be carried on a holster. If a gun owner quibbles about loading a weapon manually than perhaps they have no core competency in handling one.

B) If an incident of a weapon being discharged at your residence or place of commercial business occurs. Such as a probable cause for law enforcement to arrive on such a locale in an emergency. Once an area is secured when firearms are discharged to check if the weapon was properly secured. Especially if a child gets a hold of a firearm and decides to play with it. Whether a fatality or not was caused that the weapon had a safety lock by a secure case and subsequently if it was properly maintained.

American's have the full right to gun ownership and to carry it on their persons with a gun permit issued by the State. However no where does it state that the weapon must be fully loaded. Yes, have the proper ammunition on hand for a quick manual loading and reloading. Be it in self-defense, or in recreational activities such as at a gun range or hunting on a game reserve. Still an unloaded gun out in public is a safer gun until that is danger is encountered then load it.

This comes to another requirement that all gun owners should pass a certification process that is part a written exam and a field testing at a sanctioned gun range. Just like passing a drivers license written exam and a drivers test in a test drive is required by law before a vehicle class license is issued. It should be no different that all New gun owners and those seeking to Renew their carrying permits. Will be required to pass a written exam and show core competency of handling a personal firearm. At a sanctioned gun range for certification to receive a permit. 

If this is required by law to have the privilege to drive a vehicle in America. Then it should be a necessity for those that have the right to gun ownership. To display competency in handling and maintaining a personal firearm be it a handgun or rifle. That's plain enough. To argue otherwise is to promote another double standard in our laws if not society at large.

I'm not against firearms for responsible citizens in America. I am against a trade lobby in America disguising itself as a citizens organization but all the while pushing the agenda of gun manufacturers. This concept will help ensure citizens know how to use their personal firearms for self-dense and for recreational purposes. That isn't a bad thing after all. Since right now its more a system of faith based on reputation than actual proof. Otherwise it's a crap shoot (pun intended) that gun toting citizens are responsible with their firearms or not.

"Jewels of Truth" Reading From "A Soul Odyssey Within, Volume 1"

Hello All,

A belated "Happy Memorial Day" to all fellow Americans as we celebrate those soldiers, sailors, marines, airman, and coast guardsman. That made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty be they just within this year down to the annals of American History. As our forefathers of the Revolution to all the global hot spots our service men and woman are currently stationed. Aside from the politics of any era that without the convictions they set down for us. We wouldn't have been a better America in many ways. No matter we may never have a perfect America. Just like any allied Nation is far from perfect, but like us they push onward for the better of our combined respective societies. Amen.

Today in light of yesterdays American holiday I want to share three "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statements from my first volume. To highlight the topics of: Courage, Grace, and Chivalry. Do enjoy them as they shine an inspiration that is always in demand on this Earth of ours.



Good intentions and deeds at times may be very painful, difficult, and especially scary. Their are negative emotions that can act as kindling to fuel your progress to a better path. Traveling past such emotions will develop in yourself a desire to better oneself. As well as a stamina to endure the tasks of this world. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

There is no need to fear God, only to love God with sincere intent. Thus you absorb God in your life like a sponge, where you squeeze your heart back into the world for the good of all life.                                                                                ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of the Month

Hello All,

Welcome to this month's trio of "Jewels of Truth" statements which as my frequent readers you'll notice that I share them akin to bread crumbs. Two to start off the month each posted separately with a helping of this segment entry towards the end of the month. I started doing this since I felt sharing my excerpts of Volume 1 and 2 of the series in my books was a bit tedious. (Note: Links to purchase those volumes are to the right hand side column of this blog. In paperback, e-book, kindle and nook formats.) Sorry for the shameless plug, but I had to go there since I barely ever mention them available for sale.

This months trio of spiritual wisdom statements are on the topics of: Creation, Wisdom, and of People as a whole. In the series of #1039-1041. Meaning since around the year 1995 I have been writing as an inspirational passion by intuitive automatic writing of these statements. At first I didn't know what to call them since this wasn't formatted as chapters expected in a book. My love of proverbs and quotations in reading from others throughout history. Must've have triggered my Angels to help me channel their holy presence in my life in service to all. Who may be open to the spiritual wisdom statements no matter if they believe the source. Such as from a telepathic medium as myself channeling a host of Angels via automatic inspirational writing.

Enough of my story. Please enjoy this month's topics and as always may you find them reflective for your own spiritual journey's in life. Thank you.



1039)  It has been stated that the souls of all Creation is the sum of the soul of God. This is metaphysically true however the collection of souls of those on this planet we call Earth. Is also the sum macro total of the very soul or essence of this Mother Earth. Our world is a macro living organism with its various dynamics that culminate into an intelligent phenomena or spiritual entity. Perhaps a god or goddess in his or her own right, maybe named Gaia or not. This world is alive not because of its endless individual parts. But in spite of them this world flourishes with or without humanity or any other individual species. One species does not make a planet nor a dominion over the substance of this sphere we call home.

From the micro spirits we represent as individual entities up to the phenomenal children of God as macro spiritual entities. We are all equally worthy of this Divine love from and of God(dess). As worthy souls in treatment by relative degrees of respect according to our sheer presence and abilities. We can not in a right spiritual consciousness neglect our siblings in the Holy Spirit of God. To do so is irresponsible if not downright inhospitable as inheritors of this world and of the "Kingdom of God" on Earth and in Heaven. We as individual spiritual entities as mortal people do not trump the forces as the principalities and powers in reality. Which are the macro spiritual phenomenal siblings we share as our mutual holy family in Creation. Nor do these majestic siblings in the Holy Spirit of God as the principalities and powers trump us either. We are all One, their is no division nor subtraction there is just a sublime unity from our mortal carnal mammal minds that seems devoid of understanding. The paradox is truer we are in a rich soup of sharing the absolute presence of God. In conjunction with the totality of the heirs of the "Kingdom of God". Basically beyond humanity, it is narcissistic to believe we are the pinnacle of Creation as souls.

Be mindful lest we share our stupidity and arrogance as a first impression when we encounter the elder mortals across this cosmos in an intermediate future.        
                                                                                     ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


1040)  Those who keep good counsel will always grow from their personal experiences. Where their good fortune will spread like the wings of angels unto all those whom come in contact with such a person. A good adviser will glean the multitude of available paths to undertake. So that each option is weighed and considered because of the inherent motivations and consequences to be had.

Be wary of soothsayers with selfish private agendas that will only lead to chaos and personal ruin over time. A betrayal from within is the most despicable enemy ever to be encountered. Always listen to your intuition not letting the charisma of a cherished person to override your personal good sense. Wise counselors make often the best choices out of a seemingly limited set of alternatives. A creative person will find that sound actionable advice that doesn't go out of style ever. Where it is never too late in pursuing such constructive counsel offered sincerely.

Wisdom is often the path least taken in life, but how it makes the most difference when followed with conviction. A beneficial difference like no other for those that are willing and patient enough to listen and consider for themselves. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


1041)  Surround yourself always with loving people if at all possible. These are the souls whom are selfless in character aiding you in liberating yourself from difficult surroundings. Salt of the Earth souls are nobodies fool. They shall tell you with a straight face what is what. However there are submissive personalities that sugar coat in a diplomatic stances difficulties. Such kindness is appreciated at first, but soon wears out due to those gentle folk seeking to avoid confrontation at all costs. Courage of those whom are quiet and yet will speak truth to power without fraying the respect of others is a god send. Kind hearts does not always mean weak spines in living with dignity. There are beautiful souls with gruff and ill mouthed exteriors that are often angels in disguise as beasts. Many are loyal beyond measure calling it as it is and appearing when called upon out of need.

Creative people come often at a stark difference between the kind and the mean spirited. Be they an artist or not in life their personal ingenuity is often a marvel to behold. They create opportunities where none were just seconds prior in existence. Creative souls without flexibility are an easy hallmark for a tyrant in behavior. The opposite is also true those creative types open to flexibility are usually more often than not easy going in demeanor. When such a sub category of personalities are highly intuitive they also shift their behavior to match the presence of their peers. Much like an empathic chameleon able to change its colors so as to fit in out of habit or necessity.

Lastly come the immature ones incapable of kindness due to an immense sense of fear. Fear displayed as hostility at others and themselves equally. A tempest without patience nor regard for fairness or anyone's cares they are always on a hare trigger. Bullies that if pushed back either cower or lash out where in either case only misery will follow them. The truly despicable are the charismatic ones where their true motives are layered deep under their disguise of subterfuge. Only after they have achieved their intended results all are discarded like disposable commodities.

Many are the shades of personal character for better or for worse. Many a villain is capable of justice, just as a paragon of virtue is capable of crimes against humanity. We are all a fountain of chance depending on our set of circumstances in how we perceive ourselves and our environments. Truth reveals us all often getting to the core of our greatest joy or our deepest fear. How we live our lives is often a subconscious testament to both of these qualities simultaneously. Only with a faith in a greater power than ourselves can we often eclipse our former selves in behavior. May this be so for those of us who value benevolence over baser instincts as people whom are actually immortal spiritual souls. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


The most beautiful people are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. ---Elisabeth Kubler-Ross.

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.
                                                                                                             ---Jalaluddin Rumi.

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
                                                                                                                 ---Albert Camus.

"Jewels of Truth" Reading From Volume 2, A Statement On "Life"

Hello All,

Here is an excerpt from Jewels of Truth: The Wayfarer of the Soul, Volume 2 with a meaty statement about our shared joy with God to help co-create our reality. In doing so we allow ourselves to be furnished with a sense of resolve to live more meaningful lives by the consecrated act of giving life. By giving life I mean creating with intent and purpose whatever we desire that offers us grace in living. With the power to create comes rules or responsibility so as to create within the circle of righteousness. Without abandoning our goodwill in the exchange, but to make it a constant reminder as we mimic the creative faculty of God in our lives.




The act of creating life is a sacred one that mimics the wonders of God our Creator. His splendor changes hands and we are imbued with the Holy decree to multiple responsibly. The holy grace to create beauty in all its forms is both a gift and a duty. The majesty of absolute Love has no end and yet no single beginning. It is Infinite in both essence and substance, because our God is also infinite in both cause and effect. All life is eternal in Spirit due to God being the source or first cause. We as the inheritors of this promise and as the stewards must follow the course of a righteous form of living. Not merely to help us feel good, but to do good and thus the consequences of good will multiple in wondrous ways.

All of Life be it known and especially unknown to us yet to be discovered by our sciences is in abundance. Like a cosmic "Garden of Eden" the richness is so varied we can easily become overwhelmed if we but lose perspective on the Divine. Stay true to your hearts with the never ending source of unconditional love that God(dess) is pouring out to you constantly. This will ensure a steady supply of both courage and grace to perform wonders all around you. Including to help Life to become prosperous no matter what limitations may be imposed for a brief time. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "Kindness As The Very Smile of God"

Hello All,

Today's solitary "Jewels of Truth" spiritual wisdom statement lends itself to the poetic. Since my literary work for the most part relies on the imaginative flourishes to describe the ineffable. Thus it aids in the expression as to the point of view I'm attempting to convey in earnest. My topic for today is on Kindness the statement is short and sweet mirroring my early forays of my spiritual writings.

This "Jewels of Truth" statement is in the series of #1714 written in the middle of last month in April. Please enjoy the intended content, which I hope helps you pause and reflect on the valuable spiritual powers. That is bestowed on us all in living a good life as spiritual beings yourselves.



1714)  Kindness is a living grace from God on high. A glorious celestial light that shines brightest within our hearts when it is shared out of the goodness inherent to all of us. Only the "Holy Spirit" within us knows that in giving kindness brings in all manner of glad tidings. An elegant truth that becomes instantly embraced by the very sheer majestic "Spirit of God". We as the inheritors of paradise in Heaven become equal witnesses to the wonders of grace here on Earth. Be still and love truly again with kindness for this is the literal Smile of God Remembered. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

"Jewels of Truth" Reading From Volume 1, A Statement On "Heart"

Hello All,

A very happy Mother's Day to all mothers be you recent (if not impending) or at this way of life for decades. Without mothers of all blessed kinds in all shapes and sizes our civilization wouldn't exist period. Yeah, yeah Fathers had a hand to play in this as well. Yes for full disclosure I'm also a mama's boy. :o)

Today's reading from Volume 1 of my initial book Jewels of Truth: A Soul Odyssey Within is on the topic of Heart. This spiritual wisdom statement is short and to the point. Since my automatic writing gift started off small in hopefully elegant quotation sized topics. Later on as my gift progressed it can take up to a couple full pages of channeled material from our Angels. So today's entry is a time capsule of my writing style, do enjoy. Thank you.



The reasons of the heart have no reason, except to Love life with its tender embrace. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statement: "The Desire To Be Like God"

Hello All,

It seems I'm back to posting here once a week versus two to three times a week. So goes the ebb and flow of my on goings in my daily life.

Today's "Jewels of Truth" statement is on the topic of Desires generally speaking. How it activates our senses as people and how in a spiritual sense aids in our personal definition of ourselves. For better or worse our desires becomes informed because of our intentions in life. Whether such choices are warranted or not, be they driven by common sense or an aspiration that seems to elude us in this lifetime. Nonetheless, it may very well be the "Spirit of God" seeking expression through our very spiritual and human being. How we fashion this limited human free will is a gift back to ourselves and God simultaneously.

This "Jewels of Truth" statement is in the series of #1710 written originally back in the middle of April of this year. Please find it intriguing, if not otherwise helps you question the reality of your desires. Enjoy.



1710)  We are the culmination of our desires, intentions, and of our own needs. Yet why are we so driven to capture the genie or divine spark burning so brightly during our lifetimes? We pursue our desires like a fool chasing a butterfly with a net. Perhaps the butterfly like our desires is meant to roam freely without captivity. Is it to be victorious over our own lives when we seem to lack sufficient control of the uncontrollable? Do we seek to rule our lives to the point of complete dominion only to be humbled to the contrary.

The reason we are truly made in the "Image and Likeness" of God. It is in part because we desire to create like a god. Be it things of beauty, function, truth, and of a living power that can exceed our very own comprehension. We dare to master life, when it is life that has mastered us by our own unwitting volition. Yet our Immortal Divine Spirit finds us wanting when we should be complete in the very presence of God. We wander as people seeking a truth or a promise to set us ultimately free. Although what we seek ardently or ruthlessly we already possess in the "Holy Spirit". Only by surrendering to such a greater spiritual awareness can we find our truest essence as manifested as us right now.

Life begets life abundantly be it the realms of the living or of the dead. A generosity that knows no bounds as a pure neutrality that offers Infinite goodness or evil. Depending on our wishes to make real what was only an intention just before in our mind's eye. On this Earth we are both good and evil as people. Trying to scale the pinnacle that is the very essence of God himself some finding success many more that do not. Although failure to do so is even a grace unto itself. For a God of absolute Love makes a gift out of seeking the impossible leaving us not empty handed. Every generation of people that are born like the waves reaching the beach. Must find their own expression within a lifetime, some are bolder than others. How we define ourselves individually and collectively may very well set the tone of our lives and of our world to come. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
