Yeah The armed minuteman is the symbol of the U.S. Army National Guard. So I guess we need to disarm the army also.
In 1859-60 the southern states began arming themselves because after Harper Ferry they feared that the National Government would assist in promoting a racial rebellion and that fear was heighten by the election of Abraham Lincoln. We see that the Government fears the armed citizen lets keep it the way our forefather planned.
Oh, by the way Danny, we lost the Confederate Monument on the Jefferson County Court House square today because of our state legislature failure to protect our historical monuments and "Political correctness". I wonder whose monument they are going to take down next? Viet Nam veterans? George Washington's? How about Fireman's and Police monuments? No ones memorial are safe.
