Oft times I get letters and they are put in the Letters To The Editor column but I think this one belongs right here because it is something that concerns each and every one of us. You may be tired of hearing about gun control but you better keep alert of what is going on around us and read what this local writer has to say.
To Ray McCune, Associate Editor
I'm sending you what I call a 2nd AMENDMENT REFRESHER COURSE; use it however you want to make the public aware of their rights.
a. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
b. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.
c. Smith & Wesson: The original point and click interface.
d. Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.
e. If guns are outlawed, do we use swords?
f. If guns cause crime, then pencils cause misspelled words.
g. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.
h. If you don't know your rights you don't have any.
i. Those who trade liberty for security have neither.
j. The United States Constitution - All Rights Reserved.
k. What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?
l. The Second Amendment is in place in case they ignore the others.
m.64,999,987 firearms' owners killed no one yesterday.
n. Guns only have two enemies: Rust and Politicians.
o. Know guns, know peace, know safety. No guns, no peace, no safety.
p. You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.
q. 911 - government sponsored Dial a Prayer.
r. Assault is a behavior, not a device.
s. Criminals love gun control - it makes their jobs safer.
t. If guns cause crime, then matches cause arson.
u. A government that is afraid of its citizens tries to control them.
v. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.
w. Enforce the "gun control laws" we have, don't make more.
x. When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.

z. "...a government by the people, for the people...?"
P.S. How can IRS lawyers get by with collecting income taxes by the English King James rules (you are guilty until you can prove that you're innocent), and why do American citizens continue to allow English law to be used against them while they're protected from it by our United States constitution? And I figured out, a fine is a tax you pay for doing bad. A tax is a fine you pay for doing well.
