A little refresher article on early gun control: The American Revolution against British Gun Control If we compare these events of the past to today's struggles we have to take note that it's not a centralized foreign power trying to take our arms. It is our neighbors, family, co-workers and maybe even our friends. It's also our own Federal, State and local governments. The domestic support for the confiscation of arms is broad. It's tentacles can reach down to even those living under the same roof. While we share the same end goal as our brother's and sister's of the late 1700s, the circumstances and methods to accomplish the goal will no doubt have to be different. To those who say "I will not comply", history will judge you as being right. But I hope you will not give up trying to change the minds of your brother's and sister's of today. The support for our just cause would be better won by the end of a pen rather then the end of a barrel. The power of the pen is mighty these days extending to a nearly endless source of media platforms and communication techniques. We should expand our use of this pen to convince as many of our brother's and sister's as possible that the subjugation of our right to bear arms is as unjust now as it was then. I ask that no matter how futile it may seem at times, that you continue to use the power of the pen until the very day you have to raise the end of the barrel. I hope and pray that day doesn't come.
