You'll find, as you go deeper down this particular rabbit hole, that guns cause friends...not crime. - Me


It's like a wreck looking for a place to happen.

Jumped on the interwebz to do a bit of browsing and this little gem of a headline caught my eye. Seems that some people think this is somehow new just because of Barry O and company getting to use the power granted to them by us. Here's a news flash for the MSM, militias have been around since the Revolutionary War. They were the ones responsible for many of the more successful actions conducted against the British during the war. Perhaps you may have heard of "The shot heard 'round the world" that was the militia as we had no standing army at that time. On into the War Between the States which was fought mainly by state militias that banded together under a few leaders that took orders from their respective governments.

Some would call it "Every peasant with a rifle," I call it a duty, it is my duty to dissent when a few would seek to subvert the limited powers they have been asked to wield in an effort to gain more. I say that anyone not willing to fight when all else has failed is not a citizen, they are a subject depending on someone else to do the right thing. That isn't freedom that's being subservient, around here we call it bootlicking. Every citizen of this country is a militia unto themselves and all are equal, no one "law-abiding citizen" is any more important than another and I don't care what title you might have achieved.

There is a major difference among many citizens though, some like the talking heads on the TV and politicians in DC, might "voice" their support or dissent of my rights but if necessary I'd fight for their right to do so. This is because I am a citizen and thus I am a militia of one and my commander is a piece of parchment now more than 200 years old. It is the base upon which this country rests, thanks to those brave few that stood shaking their fists and not much else (not to mention balls big enough to fill a dump truck) in the face of tyranny. Who would have thought that a few farmers and shopkeepers with rifles could defeat the most powerful army on the planet but they did*. Love our country and its guiding principles or shut the F*** up.

* Just a heads up, it can happen again if we don't keep a tight reign on our politicians.
