Remember the ‘Battle of Athens’

Detractors of the Second Amendment scoff at the idea of government tyranny.
Ask them if they have heard of the “Battle of Athens, TN” in August, 1946.
The local government rigged elections and deprived citizens of the right to vote.
The result was armed conflict and a dynamited jail / courthouse.
Don’t debate whether it can happen, explain that it already has.

    Did you know?


  2. Wow, this is the first I’ve ever heard of this insurrection. They redact this stuff from history so we don’t get any ideas.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

Michael Ellner

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

George Washington

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
