Quote of the Day - Distinctions

"Most attractive to Americans, the possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave, it being the ultimate means by which freedom was to be preserved."

- James Burgh

If you want to get into the heart of "why I own guns" well that's a big part of it.  Gun ownership is a big part of individual freedom, or, perhaps better stated, self-determination and the concept of personal sovereignty.

The difference between a Citizen and a Subject comes down to who's Finger is on the Trigger: the State or the Citizen.
