Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty teeth.

First Inaugural Address of George Washington...April 30, 1789

The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

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.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Abraham Lincoln said:

"In this age, and in this country, public sentiment is everything. With it, nothing can fail; against it nothing can suceed. Whoever molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes, or pronounces judicial decisions."

James Madison Declared

The adversaries of the Constitution seem to have lost sight of the PEOPLE altogether in their reasonings on this subject; and to have viewed these different establishments not only as mutual rivals and enemies, but as uncontrolled by any common superior in their efforts to usurp the authorities of each other. These gentlemen must be reminded of their error. They must be told that the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY, wherever the derivative may be found, RESIDES IN THE PEOPLE ALONE.

Adjectives important in WAR TIME REPORTING

In reading this morning's News-Press, the News Digest section on the front page reported,in small print, "A suicide bomber detonates his explosive vest .... killing eight Americans." What the leading line of the front page of the newspaper should have read in one inch bold print is SUICIDAL MILITANT ISLAMIST JIHADIST MURDERS EIGHT AMERICANS; that would have described what happened in a much more focused and truthful manner consistent with what is really happening in the war against jihadists which is a fight to the death initiated and continued by this murderous faction against western ideas, freedoms and civilization. This is going to be a WAR that will last a long time; probably until the great majority of peaceful, law abiding Muslims stand up and crush this faction of their high jacked religion from the people who would use it not only to kill infidels (non-Muslims) but their fellow Muslims who just don't go along with their brand of Islam. Until this happens the WAR will continue to go on and more and more people will die using Allah/God to justify their actions. This is the greatest sin of all.
