The Shot Heard 'Round The World

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Tomorrow, 19 April, is a VERY important date in American history, one which we really should observe as a national holiday.

On that date, in 1775, seventy-seven men and boys stood facing the British Army, the most powerful military force in the entire world.

The British Army had come to seize the citizens' supply of guns, ammunition, and powder, leaving the local civilians defenseless, and the local militia unable to resist additional impositions of government tyranny.

To this day, no one knows who fired that first shot, or whether it was done by accident.

But, that was the renowned "shot heard 'round the world", which began the American Revolutionary War.

With the blood of tyrants and patriots, God was able to create the United States of America, an ensign of moral righteousness and individual liberty for all the world to envy and emulate.

Remember, folks, that fight was all about the issue of gun control.

Coincidentally, that was the same issue that began the war for Texas independence, when residents of Gonzalez showed the famous "COME AND TAKE IT!" banner, later resulting in the heroic actions at the Alamo, Goliad, and San Jacinto.

I just now saw a news headline, although I didn't read the story.

It said the Virginia Tech shootings had presidential candidates on the spot over the issue of gun control.

Hmmm - - - , they wouldn't be "on the spot" over that issue if they would adhere to the Constitution, something they solemnly swear to do.

Last night, I heard a television news pundit pontificating about the need for reasonable gun laws, saying authorities need to know who's armed, and the Second Amendment allows individual Americans to protect themselves from criminals.

However, that is VERY wrong!

There is only one purpose for the Second Amendment, the sole reason it was insisted upon before the new Constitution would be ratified by each of the thirteen States.

The Second Amendment exists so we, the people, can overthrow our own government in a bloody violent revolt.

Yes, the teachers and students at Virginia Tech should have been armed.

No, the students at Virgina Tech (or any other college) are NOT "kids".

Those so-called "kids" are old enough to serve in the Armed Forces and/or to get married and start their own families.

It is immoral for colleges to forbid faculty and students from being armed, thus leaving them helpless prey.

It is immoral and satanic for churches to forbid their members from being armed when attending services.

It is criminal tyranny for government agencies to forbid citizens from being armed when conducting business in public facilities.

When everyone is armed, we are free.

There is less violent crime, people are more courteous, and politicians are more honest.

Even our Lord, JESUS CHRIST, commanded us to be armed.

As recorded by Luke, it was His final commandment given at the Last Supper.

Let us do as our Lord has bade us.

Thank you.
