Government trying to take guns

Just as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, you can count on the mainstream media to call for gun control after every shooting rampage. They are as predictable as Pavlov’s salivating dogs.

Little-by-little, inch-by-inch the powers in Washington are moving us toward total disarmament. The whole point of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military capacity of the people. It is the last line of defense against a tyrannical government.

It is a fact that when the British moved to disarm the patriots in 1776, it sparked the American revolution. I would not put it pass this administration to provoke those of us in the freedom movement in an attempt to demonize us.

Gun control is people control. I love my country but fear the government.
