I don't mean to incite rebellion, because thoughtless rebellion is just more trouble; much like the French Revolution from whence Napoleon came to
power. But the arbitrary laws, customs, traditions, trends, fashions, and leaders of this day of now have come, and it doesn't seem right. I'd love
for you guys to add some grievances from your own reflections.
I'll start off with one; Firearms. I see the concern, a large raise in crime has just come and rose, and come and rose, but to take away or put queer
laws to regulate guns would seem like they have forgotten the reason Americans have prided their ownership of firearms. Freedom. Not some hillbilly
from Idiottisville, but for real liberty have security of that.
One example from a man who might just know what America was to stand for, and how guns were a part of that, a Mister Thomas Jefferson. "No free man
shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect
themselves against tyranny in government".
Now I'm not an expert, just have some rare dosage of Common Sense. Add more, please, take it away.
