On July 4, 1776, American colonists declared their intent to separate from Britain. Today we use fireworks to commemorate the gun and cannon fire that followed.
The role of an armed citizenry was so vital in establishing the country that the right to bear arms was guaranteed by the second amendment to the U.S. constitution. The amendment reminds us that we’re born with the right to bear arms, and government cannot take them away.
Anyway, that’s what I’ll tell kids at the fireworks show tonight.
Happy Independence Day everybody.
