Doing homework on gun control
Wadena Minnesota 314 S. Jefferson 56482

In regards to gun control, a lot of people think we don't need these guns. If they did their homework and read the Second Amendment, and then went just a little deeper ...


We have the armed forces to protect us, and then the National Guard, which is a military reserve force. Follow that with the reserve militia, which is every able-bodied man 18 to 45 years of age, and can go as high as 60 years of age, capable of learning arms.

We are expected to provide our own weapons and ammunition. If we're expected to do that, we have to have access to the same weapons the armed forces do.

In World War II, the reserve militia was on alert on the East and West Coast. Why do you think Japan didn't attack the mainland? They not only would have had to fight the armed forces, but every farmer, store owner and anyone on the street that could carry a weapon.

So if you like living in a free country, you better start thinking about what you want or want to give up.

Thomas Jefferson once said, "When people fear their government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

So in short, if you don't like living in a free country, move.
