Happy Fourth of July!

Happy 4th of July!!!

Thought I would share something sent to me today, as a reminder of what we are celebrating! While not all can see the truth in the stats and the history books, today is a day to stop and remember why our ancestors placed certain rights into the Constitution.  Many of our forefathers gave their lives so we could have these freedoms, we should not throw them away so lightly!  

So enjoy a quick read that will give you food for thought and a great topic of conversation at your barbecue this afternoon.



 FIREARMS REFRESHER COURSE -


 1. "Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not." ~Thomas Jefferson

2. "Those who trade liberty for security have neither." ~John Adams

 3. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.

4. An armed man is a citizen.  An unarmed man is a subject.

5.Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.

 6. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.

 7. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.

 8. Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.

 9.You don't shoot to kill;  You shoot to stay alive.

 10. Assault is a behavior, not a device.

11. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

12. The United States Constitution (c) 1791. All Rights Reserved.

13. The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.

14. What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?

 15. Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians.

 16. When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.

 17. The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.


 

 "The strongest reason for the people
to retain  the right to keep and bear arms is,
as a last resort,
to protect themselves against tyranny in government." 

---  Thomas Jefferson
