How is it that a Russian journalist understands the importance of the US Constitution’s 2nd Amendment when there are hardly ANY American “journalists” wno do? We are cursed to live in “interesting” times.
I am 100% in favor of the rights to bare arms and the right to bear arms. Neither should be infringed. [Completely forgivable word error, given that this is Pravda, and they are translating into a non-native language.]
I never thought I’d live to see the day that the Russians would set us straight.
Pravda sees that only free men are armed, yet the left would tell you that you would be better off if only government goons had guns.
As we prepare for what could be a horrible struggle we need to keep this in perspective: Win or loose we will still have foreign enemies.
Why aren’t Republicans trumpeting the failure of the Gun Free School Zone Act to keep kids safe and calling for it’s repeal?
Did you ever think you’d live to see the truth about our constitution coming from Pravda, and the NY Times as the government’s mouthpiece ?
So I hear that citizens should rise up as a mass group and storm federal buildings with arms, should the government try to take away our arms by going door to door. At least that is what I hear. Anyone else hear of any other ideas?
“For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room.”
From the article. Bears repeating. Let’s not turn out the light, eh? The right of self defense is God given. It doesn’t belong to the state or even political majorities.
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, polkers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you’d be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur — what if it had been driven off or its tires spiked. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
- Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn
Is that like Open Carry?
Very good article, though I wish the author had used the correct form of ‘bear’. ‘The right to bare arms’ is what they’re pushing for in Saudi Arabia. ;)
This was worth the posting just for the comments amount the “right to bare arms” and breasts! Thanks for the laughs.
This is the very definition of “irony”. . . .
"The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive in their Greenwich Village apartment."
"People who know Greene say his political views are extreme, the sources said."
With people like this still running around the country (Bill Ayers types), the American people MUST remain vigilant, and well armed. Otherwise, who knows what and how much more damage the radical arm of the left will do. If they can disarm us, the left wing communists will be the only ones with the guns.
