If we lose our gun rights, we’ll lose our other rights

OlympiaJuly 11, 2013 

The government of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson won’t take your guns away.

They gave you a right to have and keep them.

But an armed government takeover, or take-back if you prefer, would.

The first thing the leaders of a government overthrow do is to suspend the Constitution.

There goes your right to free speech, your right to a fair trial, and, oh yeah, your right to bear arms.
