We’re living in a nation divided against itself. On one hand we have bible-clinging, small government seeking, get-off-my-lawn, live-and-let-live conservatarians. On the other hand, bleeding heart pro-government liberals. While there are non-gun owners in the former group and gun owners in the latter, people on all sides share one firearms-related characteristic . . .
The number of people who know nothing about guns and gun rights is staggering. Not to mention millions of undereducated Americans who know nothing about anything, including the fact that they live in a constitutional republic.
When it comes to our Constitutionally protected firearms freedom, ignorance is not bliss. Far from it.
When a person doesn’t have a clue about firearms, when they don’t know the truth about guns, they rely on “common sense” and emotions. Making them silly putty for mainstream media anti-gun agitators.
So what should all Americans know about guns? Here are my three ideas (kept as simple as humanly possible):
1. Americans have an absolute right to keep and bear arms — no matter what criminals, crazies and terrorists do with guns
2. Guns save life
3. The Four Safety Rules
What are your three “you should damn well know this” points for firearms ignorami?
