Would George Washington want American citizens to acquiesce to oppression?

That’s right–to say that private gun ownership must be protected to ensure the people’s ability to fight back against a tyrannical government is a “disturbing argument,” according to Beard. He then goes on to further condemn the idea of citizens resisting the government by force of arms, referring to it as “insurrectionist chest-beating.” What Beard forgets (or more likely, has chosen to ignore) is that when he called for obedience to the laws of government, Washington assumed that the government itself obeyed the Constitution. So long as it does, we the people are indeed obligated to obey. It’s when the government exceeds the authority granted to it by the Constitution that all bets are off. [More]

Today’s St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner is now up. Hope you’ll give it a look, and tell a pal.

We have a new Gun Rights Examiner–on a somewhat different beat–he represents not the nation (David’s gig), or a city, but the state of Wisconsin. Please welcome Gene German, our Wisconsin Gun Rights Examiner.

Digg me?

    The Gun Owners Legal Defense Network (GOLD’N) has an offer for you that will not only result in additional income for your business, it will also help thousands of gun owners in your area.

    The Gun Owners Legal Defense Network is a non-profit organization designed to educate and protect gun owners. We not only offer educational seminars, videos, and literature on gun ownership and safety, we also offer legal protection for any of our members who are charged criminally or civilly when legally carrying or using their firearm. For an annual fee of $100.00, our members will never have to worry about attorney’s fees if they are ever wrongfully charged for using their firearm.

    We are willing to pay you $25.00 for every person you are instrumental in signing up with GOLD’N. We will supply you with brochures and applications that can simply be set on your service counter. You can fill out your business name on the bottom of the applications, and every application we receive with your name on it results in a $25.00 payment to you.

    We can also provide a representative of GOLD’N at no cost to you that will come to your store and spend the day explaining the positive aspects of our company to your customers and outlining what we provide to our members. You will still receive the $25.00 commission for each person who signs up from your store, even if they take the application home and mail it to us at a later date.

    If you are interested in this joint venture, we can provide you with copies of our brochures and blank applications to get started. We can also set you up with a date for our representative to visit your store. If you wish to pursue this idea at a later date, contact me toll-free at 1-888-317-1676.
