Lawmakers, Terrorists, and Criminals Want Gun Control Because of This | Eastern North Carolina Now

Back in the days of The Revolutionary War, we had a militia called the Minute Men that always stood at the ready.

    Back in the days of The Revolutionary War, we had a militia called the Minute Men that always stood at the ready. They were always ready to go and defend the nation in a minute's notice. Americans were keenly aware that the nation, as it were, was in a state of war and that every man with a rifle was a soldier and at that time the fledgling nation needed every rifle it could get.

    Today, as it was over 230 years ago, we are at war. However, this is not your typical war. It is not a war that our government has formally declared but none the less, we are at war because war has been declared on the United States, our allies, and all of Western Civilization. This time, our enemy is Radical Islam

    We have seen numerous attacks on our own soil over the last 30 plus years and you could say it started in a major way back in 1994 when the first World Trade Center bombing happened.

    We have seen this war in full action as recently as a week or so ago in San Bernardino, California. On that terrible day, two radicalized Islamists decided to shoot and kill 14 Americans and wound countless others and they fully intended to do even more damage and destruction with pipe bombs that, luckily, did not detonate.

    Groups like ISIS and others have repeatedly said that the West, led by the United States, is the great Satan and they intend to bring that Satan down. They have declared war on us. Presidential candidate, Dr. Ben Carson, said we needed to have a modern and up to date version of air raid drills and he does not realize just how right he is.

    We now have senior Lawmen all over the country asking citizens who are legally able to do so, to carry their weapons with them in public. These lawmen all say that you and I, the citizen, are the first line of defense against crime and terrorism.

    Let me point out, that the vast majority of terrorist activity in the United States happens on "soft targets". These targets are areas that are known to be devoid of citizens with guns on their persons. This means little if any resistance to their assaults and the terrorist gets to assault and kill at will.

    The truth is when you have a hard target, the dynamics change because innocent lives are saved and often the criminals or terrorists don't even get to do real damage nor kill anyone. Those who have the power of self-defense via a firearm have stopped numerous criminals and terrorist attacks over the years.

    Lawmen understand this because they understand that we the people are the militia. They understand that a citizen that is armed and trained in the use of that firearm is a danger only to the enemy of freedom and law and order.

    A citizen who has a legal firearm and is trained in its use is a militia soldier. They are a defender of freedom and the Constitution because that is what the second amendment is all about.

    Without it, we never would have had a nation to begin with. Think about it!!!
