September 11, 2001 changed the world. It changed life for our peoples, our families, and our children. Some for the better, some for the worse.
Our civil liberties are under attack every day from both the Left and Right. That is unacceptable. What's worse, is that very real criminals, and very real terrorists, are often at the heart of the argument as to why there should be limits on our liberties. Suddenly arguments that guns are bad because criminals might get ahold of them morphed into a full court press from the antis saying that guns are bad because terrorists might get ahold of them.
Take some time out of your day Thursday to remember. Many lives were lost in the attacks of that Tuesday morning. They should not die in vain.
It you want to preserve our way of life, your basic human right to self defense, your property rights, etc., learning to fight back with a firearm is not the only answer. A huge answer is to get involved at the local, state and national level.
Politics isn't a dirty word, though many think that is the case. Do not let the brutality of the 9/11 attacks be forgotten, or worse, used as an excuse to curtail your liberties.
