American Gun Rights: Power to the People

The Second Amendment was NOT written to enshrine every American with the right to own a gun for hunting, sport or self-defense from violent crime. These un-enumerated rights are merely incidental benefits of what the framers of the constitution originally meant. Pure and simple, the Second Amendment was intended for one thing and one thing […]

A Tea Party guy explains the 2nd Amendment.

[HTML2] Look past the repetitious (and somewhat cheezy) graphics. Listen to what Whittle has to say.
