“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams
I don’t mean to sound insensitive, but no number of mass shootings will ever convince me to give up our 2nd Amendment.
Countries with guns are bound to have tragedies, but countries without them are bound to have genocide.
History has shown us this repeatedly.

Carson City Week
Shakespeare’s in the Cracker Box
Looking for his lady love
Napoleon eats lunch at Peg’s
Leaves waitresses a glove
Patriots stroll through the Sportsman
To boost their supply of guns
Romans are lounging at the pool
When they hear the approach of the Huns
Mark Twain puffs cigars
Tells tales at the Firkin and Fox
Charlie Chaplin runs through the fountain
Albert Einstein checks the clocks
John Mackay rides the V&T
Down tracks from Virginia City
To dance with Marilyn Monroe
He says her face is pretty
John Wayne rides into town
To have his best and last hurrah
He’ll have one more shootout
In the name of the law
Leonardo lies sideways
Outside the community hall
The Mile High Jazz band
Plays for the Winter Ball
They tore down a gazebo
Judge said it must be so
The tourists are puzzled
About a shaded place to go
A painter teaches kids
How to hold a brush
As they learn to paint a canvas
He has a gentle touch
The drifters and the homeless–
A meal they can’t afford
Bridge Church feeds them for free
While people praise the Lord.
“I’m a Christian first… That’s my claim to fame.” Actor Cameron Arnett reveals he quit #Hollywood years ago after refusing to do a nude scene because of his #Faith. “Don’t lose your identity because of the lure of riches and fame,” he cautioned.
LATEST CHRISTIAN MOVIE FROM KENDRICK BROTHERS ‘OVERCOMER’ IS A MUST-SEE TALE OF GOD’S LOVE AND POWER TO REDEEM EVEN THE MOST HOPELESS SITUATION
Don’t want you to be ignorant about
The ones who fall asleep, or to lament
Like other men, who have no hope, for we
Believe that Jesus died and rose again
And therefore we believe that God will bring
With Jesus those who fell asleep in him.
~First Thessalonians 4:13−14
Because the Lord himself will come down from
Heaven, with loud command, the archangel’s
Voice, and God’s trumpet call, and then the dead
In Christ will be the first to rise. Then we
Who are alive still and are left will be
Caught up together with them in the clouds
To meet the Lord in air, and so we will
Be with the Lord forever. So you too
Can comfort one another with this news.
~First Thessalonians 4:16−18
I’ll give my two witnesses
Power to prophesy twelve hundred sixty
Days, clothed in sackcloth; these two witnesses
Are the two olive trees and the two lampstands
That stand before the Lord who rules the earth.
If someone tries to harm them, fire bursts from
Their mouths and it devours their enemies.
