Portsmouth, NH—Chairman Barack Obama went to town hall meeting in the, Live Free Or Die state of New Hampshire.
An anti-Obama protester, William Kostrick was present in a position well outside the meeting hall with a loaded and holstered handgun. That was his unquestionable right except in the eyes of some people who went absolutely berserk at the simple display. The man also carried a sign with a quote from a great American, Thomas Jefferson that was and is still provocative.
Freedom is here because as George Orwell said, “Men sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”
Freedom is being threatened by the Obama regime and the threat is not idle. He and his un-American cabal has begun dismantling free enterprise, our entire monetary system and is moving to place Americans under the yoke of Socialist slavery.
We still have the right to peaceably assemble with the right to keep and bear arms. Both rights of these rights are under attack by the same people who support Obama and all his Marxist programs.
The Secret Service understands our laws and a presidential visit, does not trump freedom. They live with the law and yes some people want to and have killed our presidents. These agents have worked around a free society since the organization was created in 1865. It’s a tough job sometimes.
I once got to meet a United States President, Jimmy Carter and I carried a legal concealed weapon to the meeting. It was a real non-event other than I was under the watchful eyes of the Secret Service. Okay, I was an off duty cop but never advertised it or made national news over that fact.
I guess there are lots of people who want to assume every gun is owned or carried by evil persons. People who want to preserve freedom and our way of life like me feel it’s our duty. If they continue to take our freedom the smell of gun smoke will once again be in the air. That’s exactly why we have a Second Amendment.
Perhaps it's time for American Presidents to not be dividers and accept the form of government our founding fathers gave us.
