"Now they’re tryin’ to take my guns away
And that would be just fine
If you take ‘em away from the criminals first
I’d gladly give you mine"
- Charlie Daniels Band, A Few More Rednecks

"Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy,
let it slip away again; poor fools. And their grand-children are once more slaves."
- D. H. Lawrence

"Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the constitution
by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a safety hazard don’t
see the danger of the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others
to use this same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like."
- Alan Dershowitz

NOTE:  Most links in the future will be "tinyurls" which should open with a single or
double click or, alternatively, can be copied and pasted into your browser window.
To copy and paste, you will need to highlight the entire tinyurl with your cursor then
copy and paste it into your browser window. Control C is the command "copy" and
Control V is the command "paste" or you can use copy and paste from your edit menu
at the top of your email program.

When you just click on long, two-line links the second line of the link may not be active
and you will get an error message saying the link is not active.

REPAIRING LINKS: If the long link does not work, check it in your browser window for
spaces between characters after you paste it into your browser window.
If these are
found, they will often be at the place where the text changes color or the second line
begins. Put your cursor on the space and delete it and try again. It should work if you
found and deleted them all.
