Let Freedom Ring

The Tea Party, the revival of the concept of citizenship, and the ever-present reality that smacks us in the face each day - that reality being the fact that there are a whole lot of people out there - many now sitting in their own feces in a park in New York City - who want our possessions and want us dead - will have this effect on public perception of "our first freedom":

From Gallup:
Record-Low 26% in U.S. Favor Handgun BanSupport for stricter gun laws in general is lowest Gallup has measuredby Jeffrey M. Jones

Princeton, NJ -- A record-low 26% of Americans favor a legal ban on the possession of handguns in the United States other than by police and other authorized people. When Gallup first asked Americans this question in 1959, 60% favored banning handguns. But since 1975, the majority of Americans have opposed such a measure, with opposition around 70% in recent years.

Our freedom to keep and bear arms. That freedom that secures all others.

Here's to you, my bruthas.
