    See, ďshallowĒ is exactly what I was getting at when considering the ď...from my cold dead fingersĒ guy.... THATíS shallow thinking. ĎCause heís dead and no good to anyone except maybe as a martyr or a flash point like Lexington and Concord. One or two martyrs can be useful. 500,000 martyrs just means we fought stupidly and shallowly and probably lost.

    And youíre making a huge assumption to suggest that I just hand my guns over to the police.

    Ok, I will grant you that dialogue is less than sexy (information is critical, though). And actions DO speak louder than words. So what ďactionsĒ do you propose? Do you mean actions that fall within the framework of the law (because we are a nation of laws, including the constitution)? Or are you going right for insurrection?

    The true intent of The Second amendment to the Constitution was dealt a fatal blow with the National Firarms Protection Act of 1934. The guns that most of us have donít even come close to the firepower necessary to unseat a tyrannical government. And shallow epitaphs like ď...cold dead fingersĒ donít do the cause any favors. They just play into the hands of those who would subjugate us.

    The colonists were in a WAY better position to match force with the British than modern Americans citizens are. Though the colonists lacked depth and numbers, their hardware was at LEAST on par with the British, and often superior (minus the navy. Britainís Navy was way better). And most importantly, the colonists understood the folly of frontal assault. The colonists did not stand on their collective porches and get mowed down by volley fire. They crawled through the bushes, hitting and RUNNING

    If, at some point, someone DOES pry my gun from my cold dead fingers, I will not have spent my life cheaply or frivolously. And I dang sure am not going to base my strategy and tactics on a bumper sticker.

    The cold dead hands saying is simply a mantra. One said not to brag but instead to put people that want to take our guns on notice. You're not saying you're willing to die for your guns. You are warning the American traitors that if they go that route you will kill them. A lot of them. And there will be no negotiating or peace treaty. If they cross that line you and a bunch of other like minded people will hunt them down and eradicate them. And the only thing that will stop you is if they kill you first.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    There is a joke in "Cold dead fingers." I have my "guidelines" about confrontation. This includes me being in my truck to being at home. Also includes coming home to see my home being raided.

    Exactly. Rather than get into deep and involved thoughts, it’s easier to speak the language of bumper stickers.
    It doesn’t mean they won’t do the right thing at the right time.

    I keep hearing some opening dialouge from a Mookie Spalain novel around here. I always liked the one.."the Sun hit me in the eyes through the venetian blinds like a load of pea soup goes through a two year old." That is deep stuff right there.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, in a few years, all of us will have cold dead fingers. Thatís right folks, all of us are just moments away from death. Nothing you do or donít do will change that. Itís ok though because our descendants will walk the earth in our place.

    Right now, we have freedom and our rights are still protected by a piece of 200 year old parchment. Are we simply lucky that it is so? Not at all, we have freedom and liberty because our ancestors sacrificed a portion of their life for us.

    I have the utmost respect and gratitude for those that sacrificed for me. The ones that didnít, I spit on their grave.

    In case there are some who hadn't considered it, with a rifle as "quaint" as a 30-30 Winchester, you can always get a real assault rifle after the balloon goes up.

    I really don't know how true it was, . . . but one time I read an article that said it was only a small percentage of the colonists who truly backed the revolution, . . . and an even smaller percentage who took up arms and fought.

    I have a lot to live for, . . . even at 74, . . . bucket list gets bigger all the time, . . . but if I live, . . . I want to live free, . . . and I would much rather be a dead patriot than a live serf. As a young man fresh back from 'Nam, . . . I got my belly full of institutional discrimination and public shame. There were times I wanted to look on my arm and see if the nazis had tattooed the left arm.

    Our country finally got out of that, . . . and I have no desire to return, . . . and losing the 2nd is a promise of return in spades, . . . ain't going there.

    And as back then, . . . I don't think it will take a huge percentage of the population to get the point across.

    May God bless,

    If you can breathe, . . . thank God.

    If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.

    If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.
