"In the larger sense, however, the personal ownership of firearms is only secondarily a matter of defense against the criminal. Note the following from Thomas Jefferson: The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government. That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants." Clint Smith

Clint Smith, President and Director of Thunder Ranch®, is a Marine Corps veteran of two infantry and
Combined Action Platoon tours in Vietnam. His experience includes seven years as a police officer during
which he served as  head of the Firearms Training Division as well as being a S.W.A.T. member and

"All the people constitute the militia - according to the Founding Fathers. Therefore every able-bodied man has a duty under the Constitution to become part of the 'well-regulated' militia, specifically to understand and perform well with the individual weapon currently issued to the regular establishment.... Thus one who has not qualified himself with the M-16 may not be considered to be a responsible citizen." Clint Smith
