If Guns Didn't Help America Win It's Independence

If we go say that all things should stay the same as they were during 1776 we wouldn't have the healthcare, homes, standard of living, ease of transportation and many many other things....

The gun folks love to talk about how guns solved our problems back then. Yes, guns in all homes were are militia and provide food.

Today the United States has a militia and we are able to get our food at a store.

Times change....

For those wanting to carry a holster and fire arm to protect themselves and talk about the way things are in the constitution and how the right to bare arms saved them I say lets put them all in a time capsule and transport them to 1776 where they hunt for their food, have no electricity, heat, healthcare and a life expectancy of 50 at best.

I think if we can get 100,000 more guys like this to "bare arms" we will have enough businesses lobbying on the other side as their businesses will be adversely impacted and we will have meaningful change.

I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots
