They consist now of the whole people…” In point of fact, John Q. On January 8th, 1790, addressing both Houses of Congress for the first time, George Washington said, “…
the Constitution should never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms…” History books are full of citations from the Founding Fathers and other influential men of the time, all making it very clear that firearms were an integral part of their lives.
They were also tasked with continuing on to Concord where Gage believed the colonists stored ammunition for the common defense.
The plan was to confiscate the powder, thereby, implementing the first gun control scheme aimed at disarming John Q. Boston patriots Paul Revere and William Dawes got wind of the plot and warned Hancock and Adams, as well as the local minutemen who surprised British troops as they arrived at the North Bridge in Concord.
The goal itself is remarkable but the fan's reaction makes it a truly special moment.
Similar in style to Ronaldo's strike against Porto, Arie Haan's goal against Italy in the 1978 World Cup helped Holland to a 2-1 victory.
Equally important, their firearms were similar to what the military had, because they served as a constant reminder of the harsh reality of the consequences of tyrannical rule.
What these has-been funny men are missing is that it isn’t the NRA that has the clout.Although his Wimbledon heroics haven't made the cut, in that it was more a lob than a bullet, this little beauty against Deportivo in the Champions League is surely worthy of a place. Whenever Liverpool are desperate for a goal, Steven Gerrard has the uncanny knack of popping up and obliging.He did it famously against Olympiakos, and he did it equally as importantly against West Ham in the 2006 FA Cup final.I’m not sure which the better example of being delusional is: Ed Asner (aka Lou Grant) and Ed Weinberger (a comedy writer) co-authoring an article about the Second Amendment as if they were scholars or Salon Magazine publishing their article and pretending they are scholars. That’s about as funny as a Joyce Behar stand-up routine. For instance: …Let’s consider the case made by the NRA, its Congressional hired hands, the majority of the Supreme Court, and various right wing pundits who claim the Second Amendment is not simply about state militias but guarantees the unfettered right of everyone to own, carry, trade and eventually shoot someone with a gun.
