Our Standing Militia
Saturday, March 8, 2014
I hope the gun control fanatics are watching the national news. The citizens of the Ukraine are under siege by opposing government soldiers. They are building barricades against their own army and now against foreign soldiers. They are fighting back with the only weapons they have. Broomsticks, Molotov cocktails, rakes and shovels and they are throwing rocks at the government armed and equipped oppressors. The government troops are ordered to shoot to kill their own citizens.
Our founding fathers knew this can and will happen unless we are given the right to protect ourselves against threats foreign or domestic. Could we stand against Cobra helicopters and Abrahm M1A1 tanks? It would be difficult, but they have to stop and fuel up somewhere.
If you consider only the number of deer, elk and bear hunters in the USA we would have a standing militia that would surpass most armies in the world and possibly the number of military personnel in this country. Peaceful law abiding citizens, who will defend our way of life with legally owned big old guns and bullets.
Legally owned firearms are a deterrent to threats foreign and domestic. The right to keep and bare arms makes our citizens a very formidable barrier against the very things that are happening in the Ukraine today. What part of disarming the American people can you not understand?
