    No
    doubt, many of you have already seen this and to you, I apologize. To
    the rest, I hope this little snippet of history serves to remind us that
    we either need to learn from history or we must be doomed to repeat it.






    A Lesson to be Learned on the Anniversary of Wounded Knee.

    December 29, 2012 marked the 122nd Anniversary of the
    murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge
    Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter
    camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who
    had come to confiscate their firearms "for their own safety and
    protection". The slaughter began AFTER the majority of the Sioux had
    peacefully turned in their firearms. When the final round had flown, of
    the 297 dead or dying, two thirds (200) were women and children.


    Around 40 members of the 7th Cavalry were killed, over half cut
    down by friendly fire from the Hotchkiss guns of their overzealous
    comrades-in-arms. Twenty members of the 7th Cavalry were deemed
    "National Heros" and awarded the Medal of Honor for their acts of
    cowardice.





    We do not hear of Wounded Knee today. It is not mentioned
    in our history classes or books. What little does exist about Wounded
    Knee is normally the sanitized "Official Government Explanation" or the
    historically and factually inaccurate depictions of the events leading
    up to the massacre on the movie screen.


    Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun
    confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the
    senseless murder of 297 people.


    Before you jump on the
    emotionally charged bandwagon for gun-control, take a moment to reflect
    on the real purpose of the Second Amendment- The right of the people to
    take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in
    the face of invading armies or an oppressive government. The argument
    that the Second Amendment only applies to hunting and target shooting is
    asinine. When the United States Constitution was drafted "hunting" was
    an everyday chore carried out by men and women to put meat on the table
    each night, and "target shooting" was an unheard of concept, musket
    balls were a precious commodity in the wilds of early America, and were
    certainly not wasted "target shooting". The Second Amendment was written
    by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe, and
    refers to the right of American citizens to be armed for defense
    purposes should such tyranny rise in the United States.


    As time goes on the average citizen in the United States
    continues to lose personal freedom or "liberty". Far too many times
    unjust bills are passed and signed into law under the guise of "for your
    safety" or "for protection". The Patriot Act signed into law by G.W.
    Bush, then expanded and continued by Barack Obama is just one of many
    examples of American citizens being stripped of their rights and privacy
    for "safety". Now, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is on the table, and
    will, most likely be taken away for "our safety".


    Before any American citizen blindly accepts whatever new firearms
    legislation that is about to be doled out, they should stop and think
    about something for just one minute. Evil
    does exist in
    our world. It always has and always will. Throughout history evil people
    have committed evil acts. In the Bible one of the first stories is that
    of Cain killing Abel. We can not legislate "evil" into extinction. Good
    people will abide by the law, defective people will always find a way
    around it.


    And another thought Evil exists all around us, but looking back
    at the historical record of the past 200 years across the globe, where
    is "evil" and "malevolence" most often found? In the hands of those with
    the power--governments. That greatest human tragedies on record and the
    largest loss of innocent human life can be attributed to governments.
    Who do governments target? "Scapegoats" and "enemies" within their own
    borders but only after they have been disarmed to the point where they
    are no longer a threat. Ask any Native American, and they will tell you
    it was inferior technology and lack of arms that contributed to their
    demise. Ask any Armenian why it was so easy for the Turks to exterminate
    millions of them, and they will answer "We were disarmed before it
    happened". Ask any Jew what Hitler's first step prior to the mass
    murders of the Holocaust was- confiscation of firearms from the people.





    Wounded
    Knee is a prime example of why the Second Amendment exists, and why we
    shouldn't be in such a hurry to surrender our Right to Bear Arms.
    Without the Second Amendment we have no right to defend ourselves and
    our families.
