Happy Independence Day From The Truth About Guns

happy independence day

Bigstock

I am apt to believe that [Independence Day] will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance; it ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

John Adams

That’s right…the second president of these United States expressed the opinion that one of the ways Americans should commemorate the birth of this nation is with guns. Why? Because without them, America simply wouldn’t exist.

Firearms are an intrinsic part of this country’s history, culture and character. Enshrining the individual right to keep and bear arms was a stroke of genius by the Founding Fathers and a civil right that keeps us free to this day.

That’s a fact that our friends in the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex and most of the media choose not to acknowledge or will simply deny, all evidence to the contrary. In fact the details of the flag at the top of this post will probably trigger a fair number of them who monitor these pages, which makes it all the more fun and appropriate.

So while you’re spending time with your familial unit today — swimming, grilling, igniting small incendiary devices…whatever — give a thought to all the freedoms we enjoy and the role that firearms play in ensuring that we still have them.

  5. avatar LifeSavor says:

    I grew up in a household dominated by cynicism and strongly left-leaning, socialists. Picking apart the motivations of the Founding Fathers was a favorite pastime. Patriotism was considered foolish, a weakness that allowed the government to control you.

    It took decades for me to find my out of that depressing, divisive, and destructive way of thinking.

    World travel helped. Reading the Constitution helped. Realizing there is a great rift between patriotism and that which our government often does helped.

    Today, we fly the flag from our front porch every day of the year. We talk about the Constitution and about faith so that me daughter has a foil against the leftist, LGBT, gender-dysphoric insanity on her college campus. We talk about the news and the suppression of free-speech. Every day, we affirm that we will not submit, that we will advocate and fight for the principles on which this country was founded. My firearm is always with me.

    This journey has brought me to pride in my USA citizenship and determination to defend the Constitution. That includes equal rights for all. We are not a racist country. We are the most generous country on this planet.

    I apologize for the impassioned monologue. It is how I think of this Holiday, this Celebration of liberty.

    A happy and blessed Independence Day to all of you!!

    1. avatar Geoff "Guns. LOTS of guns..." PR says:

      “I apologize for the impassioned monologue.”

      Not a damn thing to apologize for.

      Happy and safe July 4 all, except the pathetic little trolls… 🙂

      1. avatar Klaus Von Schmitto says:

        You too Geoff!. The American wing of the Von Schmitto’s are celebrating their 100th 4th of July.

        1. avatar Geoff "Guns. LOTS of guns..." PR says:

          100?

          Daaaaaaaaaamn…. 😉

        2. avatar Klaus Von Schmitto says:

          LOL I meant the family arrived in America in 1919. This is my 58th.

    2. avatar hawkeye says:

      Yes, world travel helps, even if you cross only one border. Every time I return, I get off the plane and kiss the ground. Not because of a problem with flying, but because it’s this ground. I don’t kiss the ground in Parador, despite the family connection. Celebrate, and be safe!

      1. avatar Craig in IA says:

        “Yes, world travel helps, even if you cross only one border.”

        It’d be a good thing for all of these “protesting” anti-US anarchists to go to some other countries that they seem to look up to as their nirvana and try pulling the same crap. Go to China and rip down a statue of Xi or Mao, or even just 90 miles south of FL and spit on Fidel’s image. Maybe go break down a gate at Maduro’s house. We already know what happens in NoKo when a stupid American student takes down a Kim poster, or have we forgotten?

        Guess the main problem is: the Left and anarchists have never learned it all in the first place. Quite easy to take for granted that which someone else died for years ago so you can stand around bitching and tearing down the very acknowledgement that allows you to do so. This is where obama should’ve directed his “You didn’t build that” speech but he’s in the same league with these nuts.

    3. avatar SAFEupstateFML says:

      Muruca fuck yeah. Honestly you are pretty much where I hope to be in a decade or two.

      Those people, in those official capacities, are the embodiment of the state. YOU have rights they don’t have.

      1. avatar cgray says:

        I’ve got qualified immunity?!?

        WOW!!!!

        Didn’t even know it.

        1. avatar California Richard says:

          No. And as private citizens, neither do they. Qualified immunity only applies in so far as they are acting within the scope of their duties set forth by our elected legislature, at the discretion of our elected executive (mayor, governor, and/president), as defined by our appointed* or elected* judiciary.

          *Some are elected and the Appointed ones are appointed by majority or consensus by our elected executives and legislators.

          Trust me. I live in California, so I know how raw that deal can be. But this is still the best country on Earth and I am very happy to be an American.

  10. avatar Chris T in KY says:

    Happy birthday to the best country on earth. And if you’re unhappy here there are many other countries you can move to. That have people who look just like yourself. And are incharge. Don’t let the door hit you in the a$$ when you leave.

    You most likely won’t be able to take your guns with you. Because they will be illegal where you are going.

      Pretty sure it’s the people who shit on the Constitution who should leave.

      (That would be you)

      Nothing in there about “special rights” for our government masters.
      In fact, nothing about government being our master at all.

      1. avatar Chris T in KY says:

        You keep forgetting that your president Obama made sure the police in democrat controlled cities got select fire weapons. And they still have them to this day. I’m here to keep reminding you of at fact.

    Well cgray, what country are you moving to?
    This is the classic “bash the good, because it falls short of perfection” spew.
    News flash, perfection is UNACHIEVABLE, due to the fact that mere mortals/imperfect humans are running the show.
    The USA isn’t perfect, but it’s WAY closer then almost any other country on the on the planet.

    2. avatar California Richard says:

      Do they have a go fund me page? Dude lost his job and got arrested for felony assault just for being there. When we talk about an armed society being a polite one, this is what it looks like. Don’t screw with people, don’t tell them you’re “going to beat your white ass”, and don’t jump in front of their car, and you won’t have a gun shoved in your face. This is a cowardly political prosecution that only emboldens the “impolite” (I can think of a few less polite terms)..

    As I write this I’m watching tens of millions of dollars in illegal fireworks go off in one small part of Colorado. The entire skyline of a small city has been lit up for over an hour and it’s only increasing as it gets towards full dark. Many times that of previous years. Many, many, many times.

    So, to some small extent the spirit of rebellion lives on.

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Word. Here in the bay area of CA we coned off our street. Set up bbq’s and let our little savages run wild with burning devices. Many illegal explosives were detonated. Alcohol was consumed in public. All very illegal. No permission asked.

      The best part is that fully half, if not more, of our street are not native born Americans. America is still the place that people risk all to get to.

    2. avatar Ing says:

      This small Eastern Washington town sounded like a war zone last night. The big community fireworks show was canceled and the quarantine is back on, so the entire town turned itself into a gigantic distributed 4th of July fireworks extravaganza. Small neighborhood parties everywhere, and every one with the biggest fireworks they could get their hands on. Mortars everywhere.

      The air was full of smoke, everything smelled like cordite, and we couldn’t even talk over all the noise sometimes. It was absolutely wonderful. America is the best.

    “We’re In Your House. Let’s Go.” – Black Armed Protesters Challenge White Militia At Confederate Monument
    The group, known as Not Fucking Around Coalition (NFAC), marched through Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta on Independence Day, calling out white militias, along with protesting one of the largest Confederate monuments in the country. Hundreds of heavily armed NFAC members, predominantly African Americans, were seen dressed in black combat gear with military-style rifles – quietly marched up a road in the park in two columns. Video shows the group coming to a stop on the road with an unidentified man shouting into a loudspeaker challenging white militias. “I don’t see no white militia,” he declared. “We’re here. Where … you at? We’re in your house. Let’s go.”
    BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR……… Happy Birthday America….

    If there was ever any doubt about what these shit heads actually want….
    A statue of famed black abolitionist Frederick Douglass was destroyed at Maplewood Park in Rochester, New York, over the weekend, which comes on the anniversary of a notable speech that Douglass delivered at an Independence Day event in the city in 1852. “The base and lower part of the statue was damaged, as was a finger on the statue’s left hand,” the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported. “There is historical significance to the timing of the vandalism — though no one can now say whether the timing was mere happenstance — just as there is historical significance to the statue’s very location. The Maplewood Park location includes Kelsey’s Landing, where Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and others helped shuttle slaves to safety along the Underground Railroad.”
    This as the fucking communists led BLM in a flag burning in front of the White House… It’s HEEERRREE…
