    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    That's another of those hypothetical questions that really have no simple answer.


    I will say this, I would lay down my life to defend the constitution that my oath of enlistment has no expiration date. If we come to a second American revolution not only will I fight and defend the side in which I believe to be right, but I will also recruit others that think the same way I do. In much the same way as I protect and defend my home from criminals.

    I think they are trying the wrong thing, they are going after guns which they know will not stop these shootings. Let's go after the people that committee those crimes. When they commit suicide we should tear their lives apart to the minute and determine exactly what went wrong and then apply that knowledge to prevent more senseless acts of violence.

    A focus on mental health would be a massive deterrent. Remove the stigma, educate people on the signs and how to get them help, make getting help easier. Of course I'm being unrealistic in my hopes I've been through that the system is no good as it stands depression is tough and a lot of people feel like they have to fight it on their own.

    No one should have to go thru depression alone, and I don't think medication is always the answer either. Sometimes just a friend or stranger reaching out and showing they care is enough. The stigma with depression or mental health issues is staggering.

    I want to put the focus where it can and would do the most good. I believe that starts with the person intent on committing this or any other type of crime.

    I am sorry it's not flashy, and doesn't draw headlines but it's the truth.

    Who determines this nebulous definition of what is "constitutional" in this every-man-for-himself world? You? The fringe, extremist bloggers you frequently refer to as "sources"? Who?

    Let's hold the people in government responsible and not vote them back in office when all they want to do is what sounds good and not what fixes the problem.

    You're a prime example of why our political system is fatally flawed. You exacerbate posters, manipulate talk points, and skirt around the issue with nonsensical questions.

    Why is it nonsensical to ask who determines "constitutionality" in his patriotic quest to "take back his country"? He could easily say SCOTUS, but that is up to ride, not you. If you do not want a discussion, stay out of it.

    In all seriousness, how many here could literally survive off the grid.

    Could you provide for the needs of yourself and your family if there was a collapse of services like power and water?
    Could you maintain the discipline necessary not to steal from your neighbors or friends?
    Or would you forget society as a whole by becoming something that I would need to protect my family from?



    What if martial law were declared, could you stand on your own or would you march off to the FEMA camp like good little sheep?

    Since my attempt at humor was obviously lost, I'll give that question some consideration and get back to you.

    Here is a story, actually its a continuing story about the veteran who was asked to leave the city council meeting while legally carrying a concealed weapon. This story made national news a few weeks ago, this is what happened next.

    Tonight I have been considering several things that have been stated in various posts not only from others but by myself as well. First of all in several posts I have referred to myself as a patriot and stated that I will continue to support and defend the Constitution with my life if necessary.

    My love of this country is NOT up for debate, or to be questioned by anyone either here or in the real world. I participate in Patriot Guard escorts for our fallen veterans, I participate in welcome home parades for returning soldiers. In the last year I put approx 7500 miles on my bike and the largest portion of that was for patriot guards. I rode 450 miles one way for a WWII vet that had passed away. One of the first things I did when my wife and I bought this house was put a flag pole up. My flag gets raised and lowered everyday, veterans day, memorial day parades I am there in one way or another. I organize toy runs for the children's wards of local hospitals. My wife will bake on the weekends and take cookies and cakes to the closest VA hospital which is well over 100 miles away. This past thanksgiving I brought 3 wounded servicemen home for a meal with my family.

    I do not expect any thing in return for these acts, actually it is my honor to give back to a country that has given so much to me. What I do not think I should have to tolerate is someone using the word patriot in any sort of insult, or disparaging comment. Myself and others like me that have served and are still serving today deserve your respect and gratitude.

    How about the next time you see an elderly gentleman wearing a Vietnam Veteran hat, or even a WWII hat you simply walk up to him, shake his hand and say, sir I want to thank you for your service to our country in its time of need, for having the courage to lay your life on the line for the principles our country was founded on.

    I cannot imagine what it must have been like for the returning Vietnam Veteran, coming home from an unpopular war. Having celebrities and our current secretary of state call you a ******, baby killer, and a murderer. They did not get the parades like WWI/II vets received, or the welcome that today's vets get.


    I am proud of the history and the journey this country has taken, yet myself and others that truly know what it means to serve are expected to stand by while a few with louder voices tear away at the rights we laid our lives on the line to protect. We are called "cold dead hands...nutters" our information is coming from fringe sources so it must all be unreliable.

    /end rant/

    Mods: I am sorry if this post got out of hand or crossed any lines, broke any rules. But there's only so much a man can take, and sometimes things just have to be said.

    I truly believe this nation is the worlds best hope for long lasting peace and prosperity, we should not be looking to countries like England, for how to get a hold of the crisis our nation is in. Other nations should be looking to us, America has always been a nation that has stood by her citizens and her principles. But how can we hold those principles up as a shining example to the rest of the world when our leaders want to take away our most basic rights, which are guaranteed in our Constitution.

    How can anyone read a newspaper, or watch a news broadcast and not see the trouble this country is heading for?

    I have been accused of taking the simpletons approach to the second amendment, and maybe that's true. But just maybe part of the reason we are in this much trouble as a nation is because everyone wants to complicate the truth to benefit themselves.

    Why does this have to be complicated?

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
