    Little publicized but true story
    This is one of the reasons we should not let the current administrationconfiscate our weapons.

    This IS actualhistory. Google it if you have any doubts.......This is whythe founders wrote the 2nd Amendment, and why, especially in this day,we need to keep it.....
    Really happened in theUS... A bit of history !
    This is for real not amake believe show.

    I was completely unaware of this event that took place in Athens, TN in 1946.


    I did not know an armed revolt by WWII veteransever took place
    during our lifetime. A very sobering video to say the least.
    Now the second amendment is a little clearer.
    Be sure to see the actual photos at the end showing the plaquesdescribing the event


    below is a link to a video describing it:

    sadly enough, i know history repeats itself.
    Unfortunately. Most of America does not. I feel bad for my nephews as they do not understand what is going on now. Too interested in sports, etc.

    It appears it already has, but nothing was, or has, or is being done about it now.
    Black Panthers intimidating voters
    Romney getting absolutely no votes in some voting precincts
    Voting done by computers that changed the vote to another candidate
    First President ever to be re elected with such horrible 1st term statistics
    Precincts reported more votes than they had voters--not questioned
    Constitution being disregarded even by BO whom is supposed to be so knowledgeable about it.
    Supreme Court rulings on bocare
    Politicians having no regard for their Oaths of Office to the Constitution
    Govt. spending more than it can ever repay in several life times
    Govt. creating fiat money and whose pockets does it end up in
    Fast & Furious
    States being invaded by illegals and drug cartels
    States and law enforcement taken to court to stop them from enforcing the laws
    Bill of rights not taken for word but out of context.
    1st Amendment stating no prohibiting the free exercise of religion has been totally limited by those against religion. Limited by a letter about separation of church and state which is not even mentioned in the Amendment.


    The most blatant disregard for rule of law passed.
    NDAA passed which has in effect obliterated the foundation of the Constitution. Yet majority of citizens have never even heard of it. NDAA is the power the govt. wanted to usurp the constitution, and our Congress passed it for BO to sign into law.

    If the people really knew what the govt is doing then we would probably see history repeat itself now.

    That's exactly what "they" want. Keep the public occupied with Kobe Bryants and Kim Kardashians of the world. All the while the real issues go unnoticed.

    This.

    The media keeps the public occupied with how fat Kim kardashian is getting, with barely a blip about real issues. Everyone is concerned about gun control and gay marriage, meanwhile north korea is interested in starting a nuclear world war. In my opinion the government shouldn't be concerned with taking guns away from citizens but issuing them to those deemed fit to defend our nation against foreign invasion.
