Bob Owens Has It Right

We happy few

Vice President Joe Biden has indicated that Barack Obama may attempt to circumvent Congressional opposition to the draconian gun controls Obama has always favored with one or more executive orders. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo screamed yesterday for the most restrictive gun control in the nation during his State of the State address. Iowa state Rep. Dan Muhlbauer called for the police-state confiscation of, “the semi-automatics, and all of them.”

In response, Speaker of the House John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee are missing in action, along with moderate Democrats.

Sane and sober statesmen have fled the field. Only madmen remain.

The “happy few” on the national stage can be counted on one hand.

Judge Andrew Napalitano had the courage to remind Americans why we have a Second Amendment.

“The 2nd amendment wasn’t written so we could go hunting. It was written so we could shoot at the gov if it was ever taken over by tyrants.”

Being a responsible citizen in a irresponsible world is hard. Doing your civic duty in a world that values neither civics, nor duty, is hard. Pledging that last full measure of devotion to God, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, duty and honor, and respecting the individual rights of your fellow man in a culture that no longer respects any of these things is hard.

Hard, but necessary.

No good American wants war.

Defenders of liberty at home and abroad for every moment of the 237 years, 8 months, and 22 days since Captain John Parker told his militia formed on Lexington Green not to fire unless fired upon, Americans are slow to anger.

Today, it seems that the would-be tyrants in distant capitols are almost attempting to goad us into a violent response to their inflammatory provocations, but that is not our nature.

We few, we happy few, are nor so easily bearded. We will zero our rifles, clean and oil them so that they are well-regulated for battle, put aside supplies, and dust off the knowledge of Morgan’s crew. But we will not strike without just and true cause in defense of liberty, for we know the horrors of war that those in far away capitols have never tasted.

    Vice President…..explain why you would not invite the 2nd. Amendment Foundation to the party at the White House?

    Barack Obama prepares to become “Dictator for Life” with the signing of one document while everyone debates about guns and debt. Does he know something that we do not know? Is Obama planning a “power grab”? Why would he need this protection “for life”?

    I love Bob Owens work. He’s very good. I sat my family down and we talked about the current state of our nation and the possibility that one day, we who love liberty, may need to stand and fight.

    I couldn’t help but be overcome at the thought and had to dry a tear from my eye. It’s terrifying to have this conversation and explain why Americans fought & died for their liberty the first time, and why it may be necessary to do so again.

    I explained the situation in the colonies and the decades of abuse by the tyrant George III. I explained that 1/3 of our country believes that they need to take away our means of self-defense. When asked why anyone would want to do that, I explained that those who would seek to control us, cannot do so, so long as we have a means of defending ourselves.

    If that 1/3 decides to try and take our ability to fend off danger, the time will have come for us, Americans that is, to fight once more in the cause of liberty.
