“In the first six to twelve months of a war with the United States and Great Britain I will run wild and win victory upon victory. But then, if the war continues after that, I have no expectation of success.”
“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.” “I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”
The above quotes are supposed to have come from the famous Japanese Admiral and architect of the Pearl Harbor invasion Admiral Yamamoto. The second quote is challenged to be a great fable, but it still does hold value. We here in America pride ourselves in the Second Amendment right we possess. Heck, you think the Trojan horse infiltration in Germany, Europe, would be possible in America, and that wanton personal attacks on civilians, women, would happen here? In America we find ourselves victims of Islamic jihadist attacks in places that are “gun free zones.” And how absurd that one of those places was on a U.S. military installation — as a matter of fact, the largest military installation in the world: Ft. Hood Texas.
It’s called self-defense for a reason.
Yesterday while at the Park City Republican Women’s Club Christmas luncheon, I sat and chatted with a woman whose son owns a gun store. She confided in me that gun sales have slowed down since the November 8th election. Gee, I wonder why?
Her son told her there’s a palpable sense of relief, and that many potential gun owners are now awaiting a drop in prices — gotta love that free market. But, in this era of domestic Islamic terrorist attacks, it’s imperative that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
