Just thought this was worth posting

 

December 29, 2012 marked the 122nd Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The Calvary began shooting, and managed to wipe out the entire camp. Two hundred of the 297 victims were women and children. About 40 members of the 7th Cavalry were killed, but over half of them were victims of fratricide from the Hotchkiss guns of their overzealous comrades-in-arms. Twenty members of the 7th Cavalry's death squad were deemed “National Heroes” and were awarded the Medal of Honor for their acts of ‘heroism’.

 

We hear very little of Wounded Knee today. It is usually not mentioned in our history classes or books. What little that does exist about Wounded Knee is normally a sanitized “Official Government Explanation”. And there are several historically inaccurate depictions of the events leading up to the massacre which appear in movie scripts and are not the least bit representative of the actual events that took place that day.

 

Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.

 

Before you jump on the emotionally charged bandwagon for gun-control, take a moment to reflect on the real purpose of the Second Amendment, the right of the people to take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in the face of an invading army or an oppressive government. The argument that the Second Amendment only applies to hunting and target shooting is asinine. When the United States Constitution was drafted, hunting was an everyday chore carried out by men and women to put meat on the table each night and target shooting was an unheard of concept. Musket balls were a precious commodity and were certainly not wasted on target shooting. The Second Amendment was written by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe and it refers to the right of American citizens to be armed, should such tyranny arise in the United States.

Every time a government confiscates privately owned firearm (for our own good), the end is the same... death. Gun confiscation leads to the murder of innocent people. And when our guns are confiscated, many of us shall die, too. That is why we must stand now for, if we don't stand now, we will kneel forever.

Every time the government does ANYTHING for the "Greater Good" the result has historically been in the service of tyranny. EVERY SINGLE TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS! Perhaps that is why the government school system has ceased to teach history. History may tell lies, but at least indicates the path that was followed to arrive at the here and now. Interesting thing about the "lies" that history tells; anyone who is a serious student of truth will ultimately find both sides (versions) of the story. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle but it needs to be searched after with great devotion. That is the only way we remain a free people - or in this case, regain some of our freedoms for we are no longer a free people.

 

Just my not so humble opinion.
