L.A. Marzulli had a great post, again, this morning. Here are some excerpts:
This video is a must watch as it sheds light on how gun control was used in the South, after the Civil War, to keep the Black man down and unarmed. It is a portion of our history which has been ignored, in which the KKK used gun control to spread fear and hatred.
Throughout history…dictators have rounded up the guns from the people shortly after they came into power. What happened next was a blood bath. People were rounded up and put into camps. Others were lined up and shot. Take a good look at this photo. This is real and it could happen here. What deters it? The 2nd Amendment. While Uncle Joe may joke about the black helicopters, we now have drones in our skies spying on Americans. We have a president who has allowed the killing of civilians overseas, if they are suspected of being a terrorist! What happened to due process? Our emails are monitored as is every purchase we make with the swipe of our credit cards. It’s out of control folks and unless we push back they’ll take our guns too.
