Quote of the day—Jeff Snyder

Now we must say goodbye to this fair country whose government toiled tirelessly to create the safety, fairness  and luxury that all demanded, and that everyone knew could be created by passing just the right laws. Through it all, the people vigorously safe-guarded their tradition of firearms ownership. But they never knew – and never learned – that preserving a tradition and a way of life is not the same as preserving liberty. And they never knew – and never learned – that it’s not about guns.

  1. Sadly too many people think that having the ‘right’ to own a gun is all that is needed to insure their freedom. The reality is that the ONLY ‘rights’ you have
    are the ones you will fight for, die for and KILL FOR. And the left knows that
    far too few will actually ‘step off the porch’ to defend those rights until it is
    TOO LATE. The phrase “watering the Tree Of Liberty” is NOT referring to
    irrigation from the garden hose.
