This week we decided to dedicate the show to something we feel was a gift from the Founding Fathers of the United States. That gift was a tool that was meant to be another check for the Government. They created a system where there was supposed to be three branches of Government or equal power so that one branch wouldn't be the ultimate ruler, and become too powerful. Then they gave us, the people, the right to be armed to make sure it stayed that way. George Washington once said:
Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.
Unless you have been living under a rock lately you have no doubt heard that the Federal Government, as well as many States, are now seeking to infringe on our Second Amendment rights under the pretense of "protecting the children."
The problem with this, even though you may agree with it, is that we in the United States have been slowly losing our rights since the terror attacks on 9/11/2001. Those attacks led the Government to form Home Land Security and the TSA. It allowed for The Patriot Act to pass. Even now laws like NDAA are being passed to "protect us" yet they infringe on, or bypass the rights guaranteed to us under the Bill of Rights. Benjamin Franklin once said:
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
Anyway, because of current events my former Navy buddy and I decided to take some old hard drives out to some BLM land near Campo California to "wipe" them with some bullets. Enjoy!
