High Tech companies are more progressive. Big surprise, most of the technology being developed under the guise of improving life will become the opposite. In reality, they are complicating it and creating dependency that will eventually be used as leverage for whatever need may arise. Imagine for a moment a catastrophic loss of power or Internet access. ALL commerce will cease, communications will become crippled. The government will only have violence as a tool for control. Sorry for the bleak reality check, but any scenario is negative no matter how you present it. The Second Amendment is the only Amendment… Read more »

I am so glad to see citizens from Virginia and Washington state, New Mexico, Colorado and other states taking action against unconstitutional (illegal) laws passed by states and the Feds. It is way overdue for people to stand up and take real action instead of just providing lip service, participating in impotent protests and attending feel-good waste-of-time rallies or contributing to organizations that spend donations on everything but defending the 2nd Amendment. It has to begin at the local level to succeed, and it has begun, thank God.

I find it shameful that VA has to go through this process to retain their constitutional rights. One has to ask- where were the droves of voters on election day. This election should serve notice to the rest of the nation of what can happen when you become complacent. I think it would be well served to recall any of the legislators supporting the gun control agenda They could care less about your rights, they only care about their jobs. Recall a few and see if the rest toe the line.

Very true jf. Complacency is a strange thing to understand for sure! When you hear the excuses such as “I don’t have time”, “my vote doesn’t matter”, I don’t know where to vote”, etc. etc. , you realize how deep the complacency has set in. But when something happens that touches a sensitive nerve they suddenly have the time and energy to react of which takes more time and energy than going to vote in the first place.

And to think that humans are supposed to be at the top of the food chain!

U S A, you went through a lot of work putting this in view if not outright remembrance of anyone looking here. Thank you. That is a really good thing. If those in the legislator would actually read the declaration of independence, constitution, bill of rights, the amendments and the BIBLICAL foundation they are all built upon, the entire nation and the world would be better off and it might save a war. ALL the evils that king George and parliament had visited upon the colonies, the socialist, communist, demoncrapic left has been doing to us for decades. Like the… Read more »
