Wounded Knee is the just another example of why the Second Amendment exists, and why we shouldn't be in such a hurry to surrender our Right to Bear Arms.
This reminds me of a letter in an Idaho newspaper by Dennis Edelbrock. The letter is titled, Guns: Heed history's lessons. Have you read it?

One of my brothers that lives in Idaho scanned the article (or someone he knows did) and forwarded. I've attached the pdf.

If some folks had a shot glass of your attitude they still wouldn't know what to do with it. Thanks for the smile.

If common folks had 1/2 of a shot glass of Crip's attitude and drive, they'd be passed out face down from fright. That is why it is labeled “Break In Case Of Emergency!

I met one of your bros on a contract in the FLA panhandle last month. He had visited you at WR and gave you major props when speaking to me. Your attitude speaks volumes for you personally and for the brotherhood writ large.

When Chuck Norris wants to kill something he asks Surgicalcric if he is ready to step up.

Add my name to the petition

In the Peoples Republic of New York we're further along the rest of the country. Confiscation starts in earnest in April 2014. If you have PTSD or almost anyother psych label, your guns are gone. Walmart already has software programs in place to record every bullet you buy. You won't get pistol ammo without a pistol permit. My grandaughter's Remington .22 Viper is illegal in NY! She can register it now. Just makes it easier for them to conficate it next year. This is not hearsay. I have a copy of the law sitting on my desk. It's pretty ugly and it's going to get worse.

Poor guy, he was probably just abused as a child. She should have just tried to talk it through with him. A hug really helps in a situation like this.
