Celebrate Gun Appreciation Day!

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution:

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.

Why the picture of a hammer in a post about the Second Amendment?  According to FBI crime statistics more Americans were murdered with blunt implements than with any rifle.  But all the chatter in the media is about evil scary assault rifles. I wanted to give equal exposure to assault hammers.

Because of the natural grief everyone feels about the horrific murders committed by madmen and the malpractice of those propagandists in the media and the insatiable lust for power of some politicians, our right to self defense is again threatened.  Our forefathers saw self defense as a preexisting right of all men.  They believed in it so strongly that a band of about 70 farmers stood ready to face the might of the British Army at Lexington Green.  Today at our Statehouse patriots from across the commonwealth will gather at noon to voice their support for the freedom of self defense.  Across our nation, patriots are speaking out in opposition to heavy handed and unconstitutional laws being proposed by our president and governors in the most corrupted states of our union. 

There is a sirens’ song of, “we will protect you,” coming from those that seek to rob us of our freedoms.  They surround themselves with children and promise that they can prevent this from happening.  They lie.  No man can keep that promise.  There will always be evil in this world.  Evil cannot be stopped by the pens of a legislature or the speeches of a president.  The best that we can hope for is to be able to defend ourselves against it.  And for that we will need more than hammers.
