Why we need the Second Amendment…

BattleOfAthensTN1946

The Battle of Athens, Tennessee took place in 1946. I did not know an armed revolt on American soil by WWII veterans had ever taken place during my lifetime. The following video clip is sobering to say the least. It’s from “The Battle of Athens: Restoring the Rule of Law,” a movie based on this factual battle. The clip lasts about 14 minutes and is well worth your time.

The reasons for the Second Amendment should now be a little clearer to everyone. For more information about this historical event, read:
