Post Happy 4th of July
Image


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.

Post Re: Happy 4th of July
Great post! Thank you.

I understand that the right to bear arms, bare arms and even the right to arm bears is an important Constitutional right found in the 2nd Amendment. But I do think that the Amendment was written at a time before AK-47's and other truly lethal weapons were developed and made readily available to the citizenry. I'm still undecided on where I stand with gun rights. While I do support the right to have guns there does seem to be a need to moderate this right with commonsense laws.

It looks like fireworks might be canceled for us here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. It is storming pretty hard out there right now and I don't see that ending anytime soon.

I read that computer-controlled drones are being used somewhere out west, where there are drought conditions. Little drones with lights, flying in programmed patterns. I hope somebody posts a video of that.

Wish we had your storms here. It is so, so dry.

As a means of putting on a show without the fireworks? That's really cool.
