Guns & Liberty

When guns are taken all other liberties will follow. The gun and the gun alone stands between you and total repression. Stand with your gun or kneel without it. You are always the soldier, the soldier in an endless struggle between liberty and tyranny and when you forget that or leave the field you forfeit the freedoms you enjoy. Ron Russell

1. "Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not."~Thomas Jefferson

2. "Those who trade liberty for security have neither." ~ John Adams

3. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.

4. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

5. Only a government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.

6. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.

7. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.

8. Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.

9. You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.

10. Assault is a behavior, not a device.

11. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

12. The United States Constitution (c) 1791. All Rights Reserved.

13. The Second Amendment is in place in case the politicians ignore the others.

14. What part of 'shall not be infringed' do you NOT understand?

15. Guns have only two enemies; rust and politicians..

16. When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.

17. The American Revolution would never have happened with gun control.

Add anything you wish to this list.

Just how much can the ~Gun Grabbers~ really do?

Ron Russell said...

Like I said in the email I read your post and it makes sense. I'm not so sure however about the military---generally they obey orders without asking questions. We train them well.

Guns won the war for independence, guns opened the west and guns provide enjoyment to millions of hunters and sport shooters.

Ron Russell said...

America would not be America without guns, but those who don't own them want us all in the same boat with them.

TexasFred said...

1. We far outnumber the military
2. Many of us WERE the military and/or police, federal agents, whatever.
3. As I said, our troops are NOT automatons any longer.

The attitude among most cops and about 3/4 of the military is, Obama and Company ARE the enemy, I am not sure it won't BE the military that removes him...

I hope you are correct on this--personally I would love to see a military coup to end the reign of this upsurper, but as I stated earlier I have personally seen the full weight of the armed forces of this country used against civilians in a sleepy Mississippi town with fixed bayonets, something I will never, never forget so forgive by doubts, but know where they are coming from.

Those are great, but I especially like number 1.

Yea, I like the no. 1 also Debbie. My head is still spinning from Obama's speech, but the tingle in my legs has stopped, ha!

Matt said...

Great one sir!

@ Fred, I think that's why the POTUS wants his "civilian defense force," or whatever he's calling it now. He wants an army of useful idiots, because he can't trust the military and it's belief and oath to the Constitution.

Mr Pink Eyes said...

Great quotes! I particularly like numbers 1,4,8,11.

This is a great list of reasons to be pro-gun. I believe that we are at a crossroads where this passage is becoming more and more a reality-A gun is needed in ase the politicians ignore the others. We need to stand up and defend our rights according to the Constitution, and that may, or may not include a 2nd revolution. Guns are necessary to ensure our freedom, for we don't want all of our founding fathers hard work to be for nought.

Ron Russell said...

Wonder if Obama plans to arm his civilian defense force---doubt if that crowd knows the butt from the barrel or the bullet from the breach!!

TexasFred said...

East Alton, IL – -( Winchester® Ammunition was recently awarded a contract by the Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) division of the Department of Homeland Security to supply a maximum of 200 million, 40 cal. rounds over the next five years.

I'd say they plan on arming that Civilian Defense Force, Obama's Army, the new Hitler Youth, the Brownshirts..

It's coming, trust me, it IS coming...

Ron Russell said...

That's sounding disturbing to say the least. Training those kids to shoot in secret could be quite a job.
