    It amazes me how activist judges and liberals in general can logically come to a conclusion that the second amendment doesn't apply to individuals when Thomas Jefferson and other forefathers have made the contrary so abundantly clear.

    Very Interesting Quote


    In light of the present financial crisis, it's interesting to read what Thomas Jeff erson said in 1802:

    'I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.'
