Share this with anti-gun people; It's eye-opening!!
« on: November 12, 2008, 09:24:42 PM »
This is a work in progress and is just one draft. I have about 10 different drafts for different groups of people (anti-gun, pro-gun, semi-gun, certifiably-gonzo-gun-wacko, gimme-gun etc).  I have a few that are short and sweet for those who really understand what is going on. My punctuation really needs work as I'm terrible at it, but my point is made. Please tell me your opinions.

I need a name for this poem.. Maybe "Death of a Great Nation"??

If you like this, PLEASE openly post it on other forums you frequent.

Quote
First  came the ban on automatic assault weapons,
I did not speak up,
Because I didn't need such a weapon.

Then came the ban on “assault” weapons and “assault” ammunition,
Again I remained silent,
For I had no quarrels with anyone;
I felt the Police were there to “Serve and protect”,
The government had a strong military in which I could trust.

Next came the ban on pistols and newly made rifles,
I kept my mouth shut,
As this made no difference because I already owned these.

Finally, martial law was declared because of an act of "terror”;
A new constitution was forged, severely limiting rights of individuals;
Gone was the right to free speech, free press, the right to own property, the right to bear arms,
Gone were States rights and Habeas Corpus, the right to a speedy, just, fair trial
Gone were our beloved Republics, Commonwealths, States and our Democracy.

The time for action through words was gone,
It was time to stand and fight,
But it was too late,
We were helpless because we had no worthy guns with which to fight.

Only then, when the government took actions against The People,
Did I truly understand the reasoning for the Second Amendment;
The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Encroachment upon one (gun or person) is an encroachment upon all!

nice illustration of the slow manner in which complacency and ambivalence leads to a loss of freedom.

This is a a great reason to support/join the NRA and other organizations like them.  All americans are in the same boat, gun owners or not.  We all love our liberty, and liberty is what gave birth the spirit of the freedom we enjoy and fight for, which in the end s what it is all about.  The right and freedom to dissagree, but not to squelch the rights and freedoms of others due to our personal feelings and views.
