    Common sense for thinking people that have any grasp of history and the struggle for freedom against tyranny and oppression.
    But no doubt over the heads of most liberals unable to get the truth of this quote.

    Col. Jeff Cooper saved countless innocent lives through his service to his Nation both in and out of uniform. That is something the hoplophobic, secular-progressives will never understand.

    The world would be a safer place with no guns.
    SAFER FOR YOUNG STRONG MALES, just as it was for thousands of years before modern firearms were invented.
    Rationalize that!

    anonymous; what sad little person who one day may be called on to protect loved ones and because of ignorance and cowardice will fail them. Sad indeed.

    We hold this truth to be self evident.

    Well said!

    anonymous, by your statement, is it to be understood, that it is your rationalization that fleeing from evil overcomes evil ? Can you give a few examples to prove your point ?
