When Governments Attack

You are likely seeing posts about the coming “right-wing attack,” meant to foment more support for gun control. But what the government isn’t going to allow the lamestream media to tell you is, it is they who are planning an attack. Patriotic citizens just go about their daily lives until WE come under attack. The attack has been subtle. A slow encroachment on our civil rights, so tiny that we hardly notice.

Second Amendment - Are we to cherish it or ignore it?

The second of the ten “bill of rights” amendments has been said to be “not needed until you need it.” With the recent public mass shootings prompting gun-ban groups (almost exclusively extreme leftist/progressive/Marxist Democratic party activist groups), are renewing their call for more gun restrictions and even confiscation from law-abiding citizens.   Read more »

Creating the U.S. Constitution

Written by Walter Coffey: In 1787, a convention was held to strengthen the Articles of Confederation that governed the new United States. However, the delegates instead seceded from the nation under the Articles and drafted what became the U.S. Constitution.

The new United States of America had been independent from Great Britain for just six years. The national laws were codified in the Articles of Confederation, which were created and executed by the Continental Congress.   Read more »

Students with Guns! Texas Bill Would Create School Gun Classes - Filed by Rep. James White

I can already see the liberal news headlines.... "Texas Wants to Teach Students How to Kill" is what the gun control advocates will say. They will post pictures (like the one on the right) that makes it look like Texas is teaching little kids how to be a member of the Texas Militia or something. They are wrong. Texas State Representative James White has filed a bill that will allow schools in Texas the option of having a gun class. It would be a class where students learn how to use and clean firearms properly. This is a great bill. Many gun accidents happen because adults and kids are afraid to handle, or do not know how to handle, or clean a gun.

Guns For What Purpose?

The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. -  Adolph Hitler

Our Second Amendment in one sentence reads:

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Simple enough to understand…"the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed". It is the only amendment that states a purpose, "being necessary to the security of a free state". James Madison

That We are Endowed by Our Creator - A Christian's Look at God and the Second Amendment

The Declaration of IndependenceDeeply enshrined in our founding documents is the concept that our rights come from God and not the government. The Declaration of Independence proudly proclaims "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Because our rights come from God, or "our Creator" if you prefer, our Constitution was established to place restrictions on the government as to what rights we should allow to be altered or infringed upon. There is a solid Christian foundation to these

Georgetown Law Professor Says “Abandon the Constitution!”

Georgetown Constitutional Law Professor Michael Seidman’s January 2nd, 2013 New York Times Op-Ed “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution” has created a stir. While some dismiss his op-ed as a rant based on frustration that House Republicans are raising mild protest to the President’s tax agenda, Seidman’s proposal carries monumental consequences for America and should be roundly rejected.

Seidman argues that America should abandon the Constitution because (1) America hasn’t historically

A Home Invasion and The Constitution

Just in case you want to know why the Second Amendment is important, consider what happened in Georgia. An intruder came in the house, and a woman with her two children hid in a crawl space before the perpetrator opened the door. The woman unloaded her gun and nailed her potential assailant with five shots to the chest. When she realized she was out of bullet, she fled with her children to a neighbor’s house while the assailant

Immigration Reform Program Announced by Obama Administration

Obama on Immigration ReformReports are circulating around Washington D.C. that the Obama Administration plans to come out of the gate this month with a push on his immigration reform program. We have heard these promises before so it will be interesting to see if he follows through with it at this time as there is much pressure from the far left to make gun control a major early initiative of this session of Congress. A White House official speaking under conditions of anonymity told the
