for those of you here in the United States celebrating July 4th today... maybe you should stop to think about what that actually means.
your forefathers were, by todays standards, terrorists. at least as far as what your government would have you believe.
they rebelled against the government, they illegally kept their firearms... they created this "freedom" which you are so quick to shit away in exchange for some alleged safety against an almost wholly imaginary threat.
before you party or light a firework... maybe you should stop to really think about just what it took to win the independence you're so ignorantly celebrating. and contrast it to what the government of today is doing... and take a really hard look at what they would try to convince you that gun control means etc.
just remember, gun control only controls the people who obey the law. removing your right to bear arms is not going to affect crime, but it sure as hell is going to prevent you from standing up to your government as the founding fathers intended.
think about it... where do many of the major gun crimes happen? day care... post office... schools... and guess what? they're all regulated and protected gun-free zones. now how about a gun show... have you EVER heard of someone going on a shooting spree at a gun show? or any violence at all for that matter?
think about that kids.
"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
(1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President
