        So teaching a child respect for America and the Constitution is considered dumb, in your whinny liberal world heath??? Heath you liberals are dumber than rocks, and you all can go to HELL. To my fellow patriots, keep your powder dry and arrows sharp, dumbass and clueless morons liberals like heath, who are more that happy to vote themselves a flaming train wreck, are what we face in this country.

        Typical remark from someone who wears a paper hat at work. Maybe after a few years of very hard work you might make the night shift french fry assistant. Loser

        You shouldn’t disrespect your parents like that.

      She’s a doll, isn’t she? Resembles my oldest granddaughter at that age. I just hope we still have a second amendment to rally for when she gets old enough to understand what all the hoopla was about.

    The people that were at this rally know that the 2nd amendment is not so much about an item, like a firearm, but instead, it is more about a perception that recognizes a prominent truth that runs through all of mankind’s history. That “prominent truth”, which is sadly recorded for us in the written annals of our history-even to this day, is this: In every generation of human existence governments have proved themselves to be the greatest destroyer of people’s lives, their families, their happiness and their property. Governments’ carrying out abuses on their own people happens at a rate that is exponentially higher than any other human facilitator of such grief.

    So, recognizing this undeniable ugly reality about the trend of governments, the framers of this nation knew that the only way that “We the People” would have a chance of ensuring the survival of Liberty and our overall happiness, would be if we all possessed the “means and ability” to defend our Precious Inheritance against corrupted government!! That “means and ability”-(or tools and capability)-is the
    lawful possession of rifles and pistols, by the majority of the public in general. That’s why the 2nd Amendment was crafted and the framers of this country encouraged firearm ownership and proficiency in their usage!

    If anyone denies the truths stated above, than that person is blind to the facts of history-and most likely a coward as well-and is not worthy of the Precious Inheritance of Liberty that is the Birthright of every American!

    Here is something to consider. Conservative, gun-owning parents of a young girl similar to the one photographed above, will probably introduce her to firearms at a young age, teach her to shoot, teach proper handling of firearms and ultimately will send their precious child out in the world significantly more equipped to deal with the scum of this nation then a liberal daughter whose parents have done little more than teach her “guns are evil, call 911.”

    Well done Arizona…and well done to all parents who give their kids a fighting chance.

      Just in case you missed this story:
      ‎11 YR OLD SHOOTS ILLEGALS thanks FOX NEWS for reporting it. BUTTE , MONTANA Shotgun preteen vs. Illegal alien Home Invaders…Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resin…dez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11-year-old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story home. It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay-shooting champion since she was nine.Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father’s room and grabbed his 12-gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun. Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11-year-old’s knee-crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals.When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the left shoulder and staggered out into the …street where he bled to death before medical help could arrive. It was found out later that Resindez was armed with a stolen 45-caliber handgun he took from another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David 0’Burien, was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news……..? An 11 year old girl, properly trained, defended her home, and herself……against two murderous, illegal immigrants…….and she wins. She is still alive. Now THAT is Gun Control!Thought for the day…. Calling an illegal alien an ‘undocumented immigrant’ is like calling a drug dealer an ‘unlicensed pharmacist.’I like this kind of e-mail! American citizens defending themselves and their homes. BEING A TRUE AMERICAN, I THINK YOU’LL PASS THIS ON!

        Great story. News will never post positive info on good things that happen with gun owners. Think it’s against their dumb oath of something only not sure what type of oath, oath of stupidity? perhaps…..thanks for this story. Shows what can be done when children are taught properly and how they can defend themselves when needed.

  • Rodney Brungardt

    The liberal have got to be freaking out. All those guns and even some of those scary black rifles in one place and no one died. Couldn’t think of a safer place to be!!

    Wonder if Guy Fawkes – who knowingly risked his life when he involved himself in the so-called “Gunpowder Plot” – would be proud or otherwise impressed to see his likeness adopted by people playing at protest in a free and democratic country?
