I served in the 101st Airborne as a grunt in Vietnam in 1966 and as a Door Gunner in a Gun Ship with the 129th in 1967. I also served time in the stockade where I was tortured for speaking truth to power after I survived my tour across the pond. ‘Just saw Zero Dark Thirty and thought you might enjoy the rant.
The NRA has nothing to do with gun rights for anyone. The NRA is nothing but a ‘store front’ set up for the gun and bullet makers. Our fellow citizens are so stupid as to believe that the NRA has something to do with the 2nd Amendment. It never did…
From 1868 until the 1970’s The NRA supported, “strict gun control.” Do a little research! Then NIXON and the Law and Order gang came to power and the NRA created the self- protection con. FEAR! Americans are pussies and love to be afraid at all times for any reason. It is in our country’s culture and mind set for Christ sake. That’s when the 2nd Amendment became an issue. It worked! Hey, it’s still working.
What I am about to say may seem unreal to many but it is true. I served in the infantry as a combat grunt in 1966 in Vietnam. While I was the infantry all soldiers had a weapon that they had to carry with them at all times. However, when we were in a rear area, every warrior had to turn in his ammo, i.e. bullets. Mind you there was no safe place in the rear areas. Our government took our bullets away because they did not trust us even after all that training. These “assault weapons” were so dangerous the government didn’t want us WARRIORS to have access to them until we really, really needed them. What does that tell you?
