Freedom to Bear Arms

"I prefer dangerous liberty to peaceful servitude."  --Thomas Jefferson


Here is an excellent video on The Battle of Athens, Tennessee in 1946.  I would like to thank Gorges Smythe for bringing this to my attention.

The Second Amendment to the U.S. 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."

_____

"Remembering the words of Nehemiah the Prophet: 'The trowel in hand and the gun rather loose in the holster.'"

--T.S. Eliot

  1. Gorges: I believe that video about The Battle of Athens, Tennessee says more about the importance of the freedom to bear arms than all the great pro-2nd Amendment speeches ever given. It is a truly inspiring video.

    Our greatest defense against tyranny is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of prayer. It is also essential to stay well-informed, the freedom of speech and to vote. And what gives the freedom of speech some real teeth, is the freedom to bear arms.

    "Give me liberty or give me death."

    --Patrick Henry

    I would much rather be dead than be a slave of tyranny.

  2. Let me rephrase myself. Our greatest OFFENSE is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of prayer.

  6. Thanks, Randy. That video about the Battle of Athens, Tennessee was very inspiring.

    I remember reading this NRA magazine and they interviewed this Japanese soldier from World War II. They asked him why didn't Japan invade the coast of California after the Pearl Harbor attack (because we had virtually no navy to protect the west coast). The Japanese soldier said that the Japanese knew that most American civilians had their own weapons.

    Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

  7. Randy: I noticed that you used the name "Sawman" in your comment.

    When I dropped out of high school the first time (when I was 17), I got a job at a lumber yard in Ames, Iowa. I was too young to legally drive the delivery trucks, so they put me in the sawshop. That's when everybody at the lumber yard started calling me "Sawman".

    Later on, this contractor confessed to me: he said that the first two years that I had been working at the lumber yard, he didn't know my real name, but he knew that I was Sawman.

  8. A problem with America today is that often people complain about their rights and they rely on outside sources to tell them what their rights ought to be. In my profession, I tell people all the time: Get educated on what you want before you talk to anyone. Only in an educated state can you make an educated decision. That's what the founding fathers did - that's what everyone should do (before they get run over by those who seek to eliminate their rights).

  9. Mrlibrarian: Thank you for your comment. To be well-informed is important; to be well-informed is essential in keeping our freedoms.

  10. Guns don't kill people. Violent Hollywood films and violent computer games inspire certain sick people to kill people.
