I have sat here, perplexed at the amount of Coverage on the “March for Our Lives” public protest……For Instance, USAToday put out this story. Taylor Swift thinks that the cause is so good she donated to a worthy cause of “Marching for Our Lives” which is to push Anti-Firearm Legislation, for those who have been lost to firearm crimes. Taylor, I guess, agrees that No Firearms for her is ok, however, those gentlemen around her carrying firearms to protect her must be a different story. Call a Spade a Spade- obviously—-
Do not misunderstand, while the “March” is a worthy cause, if you look at the whole picture of lost lives like John Lennon—Yeah, we saw you out there Elton—-without body guards. The list can go on and on from Police Violence, to Crime violence. I am not arguing any fact that is out there, for the worthiness of such a cause.
What most of the public is failing to realize—-Is the Anti-gun movement is also trying to take your right to defend yourself with a firearm as well. Anti-Gun is Anti-Gun—–So while all ya’ll out there are marching to support the cause of Anti-Gun Violence, remember those criminals who when they take away the firearms, will be the only one’s with them……Try that on for size. Then, consider your defense….., how will you defend yourself Mr or Mrs. Anti Gun? Average police response time is 12 minutes. Just saying……. Not to mention, you have no firearm cause you protested with millions around the world, and protested that firearms are the cause of violence with them…….
Makes Ya Wonder—-Don’t It!!
Considering that You probably didn’t realize you are also protesting the right to protect yourself with a weapon in your home, —– Why? Because Firearms in General are considered a TOOL—-It is used to hunt for food, Humanely dispatch a family’s annual butcher, or even dinner or supper. It helps to protect you and your family while on an outing to the wilderness, or from that intruder wreaking havoc in the community—AT LARGE….The Tool performs only as directed.
Yes, could the public education of our children be better….Yes—-Some families are truly Anti-Gun—-however, kids over for sleep-overs, Family Events, ect……everyone should be educated on Gun Safety. Understanding that Gun Control is Responsible Ownership.
As the Founding Father’s are known for stating,
“A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined…”
– George Washington, First Annual Address, to both House of Congress, January 8, 1790
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776
“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787
“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
– Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776
“A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 19, 1785
“The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”
– Thomas Jefferson, letter to to John Cartwright, 5 June 1824

When the governed people is ruled by a government of tyranny, where as they are not allowed to defend themselves from ALL ENEMY’s FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC—-instead rely on their government to do that part without the people, the FREE SOCIETY IS NO LONGER FREE!!! Instead they are imposed and demanded, they submit. An Individual shall not be infringed…..They said nothing of the People, as the collective………
Here is my thought……….
The founding Fathers set this country up based on freedom of a people where we formed a more perfect union, to protect their individual rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit. Not to be infringed upon, by the government, nor the Enemy’s of the people or their freedoms—nor against them to be a free people. This tyranny is what our founding father’s warned against. Sold to the highest bidder of more security, more control, and less individual protections, with the demand of the collective……..Remember You are not the majority — everyone is a minority most of the time………..
Sun Tzu said it best, “Divide, then Conquer.” Freedom is a gift from our ancestors so that the people would not be directed by a king or government, however directed by their own free will, to be the best, and prove that their ideals would succeed to a utopia of their future where All People were free, and not ruled upon, but granted their freedom for the future of mankind.
I have been told arguments from here to the California Grapevine as far as Alaska. I grew up on a farm my grandparents operated, my grandma still has working; and the small town where my Grandpa Joe, was the mayor for quite some time, prior to his passing. Small and Country. We camp out every year for Easter. The whole family from far and wide. I am always amazed at my cousin’s that grew up with us…….That let’s you know, I am from the country, where Values everyone taught us as children, do not exist…. The people over generations have eroded the fabric of the woven path to what fits everyone, however no one–but those chosen few…snaking their way through an invisible path built by those before and continued—–for the meer stupidity and constant infringement upon another just from the difference in themselves, condemning themselves just as much as the next free man, condemning the generation after, until they are no Longer free, but only in thought–As that is how they are taught to believe since founding.
In my final words, which can be rare—but ……. Those cherished sovereignties, freedoms, Rights or whatever choice word you prefer, that were granted are a gift, NEVER to be infringed—however, the people control that……..Do Not look upon your fellow country person to cause discourse and division for there is where they shall pry and relinquish the weakness to exploit, to overturn a free society bound by each other as FREE PEOPLE and a Light for ALL to see and cherish.
