PLEASE CALL YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS!!!








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.
