Observations from Chapter two, The Second Amendment Primer by Les Adams: Expressions of The Right in Sixteenth to Eighteenth-Century Continental Europe.

Right to Keep and Bear Arms Preceded U.S. Constitution

Found here on breitbart.com by Awr Hawkins The right to keep and bear arms preceded the U.S. Constitution, as our Founding Fathers “propounded” the right but did not create it.

Understanding The Incorporation Doctrine And How It Applies to the 2nd Amendment

A recent Face Book discussion prompted by an insightful and thought provoking question from one of our supporters, brought to mind the importance of understanding the “incorporation doctrine” for all who seek to defend the 2nd amendment.  The question was posed, “do we support the incorporation doctrine?” Being a somewhat prolific reader, including many books […]

What Bases Our Coalition?

Preserving the right to keep and bear arms protected by the 2nd Amendment is essential to sustaining all that has made America great.

As the Gunny Sees It – Gun Control is an Assault on God Given Rights

Posted on February 10, 2013 at rebuildingfreedom.org by Old Marine After every mass shooting, the Left’s (I use this term to cover ALL of those who seek to destroy America) knee jerk reaction is to attempt to pass gun control legislation, even though most rational people realize that no laws will EVER prevent evil people from getting firearms or anything […]

The Constitution and Bill of Rights Were Created for These Times

Our founding fathers were brilliant and blessed with incredible foresight. The Constitution and Bill Rights of The United States of America are not living documents, they are iron clad and they were written specifically for times like these.
