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.

Universe...may have no set speed limit...maybe all is relative

The egos and inflated self images of many physicists, cosmologists and astronomers have taken a blow to perhaps all that they think they know about the Universe of which they are a part. Over the last several weeks scientists have been shooting a beam of neutrinos to labs equipped to detect these strange particles which apparently react with little or nothing...they travel through our bodies and the earth and solid objects as if nothing was in their way. That in itself is interesting but they also seem to not obey Einstein's universal speed limit of 186,000 miles per second. It may be that all that we have taken for granted regarding Einstein's theory of relativity, the "standard theory" of subatomic particles and a myriad of so called "laws of nature" are do to expire and will have to be re-thought in the not so distant future. Good luck boys and girls!

Could it be that maybe we are not as smart as we thing we are and that nature and the cosmos is more than just one step ahead of us.
