So Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were lying members of the NRA huh? One of them wrote that the purpose of the Second Amendment was to insure the people retained the means by which to defend themselves against those who would impose tyranny upon them, including their own government. Thomas Jefferson wrote that the tree of liberty must be refreshed periodically with the blood of patriots and tyrants for that is its natural manure. Jefferson, Washington and numerous other founding fathers specifically stated that the Second Amendment was the linchpin that protected the rest. Since the NRA wasn't founded until the 1870s, neither could've possibly been members, so you ARE WRONG AGAIN.

With emotions running high in response to the heart wrenching events that took place at the Sandy Hook Elementary School December 14, many of my liberal friends and family members believe now is the perfect time for gun control legislation.

As heartbreaking as it is that 20 children in Connecticut will not have the chance to open Christmas presents, celebrate birthdays, go on a first date, drive a car, graduate, get married, and have kids, there are millions of kids out there who will. And they are the reason why the rest of us need to fight for the freedoms guaranteed...
