    Default Battle of Athens, Tennessee 1946 !!

    Little publicized but true story
    This is one of the reasons we should not let the current administration confiscate our weapons.
    This IS actual history.
    Google it if you have any doubts.......
    This is why the founders wrote the 2nd Amendment, and why, especially in this day, we need to keep it.....
    Really happened in the US... A bit of history !
    This is for real not a make believe show.
    This is why we need our guns. You may have seen this before.? A good case for the second Amendment!

    I was completely unaware of this event that took place in Athens, TN in 1946.
    I did not know an armed revolt by WWII veterans ever took place
    during our lifetime. A very sobering video to say the least.
    Now the second amendment is a little clearer.
    Be sure to see the actual photos at the end showing the plaques describing the event

    the link below is a video describing it.

    Great link on many levels. But then that was "the greatest generation", who knew what fighting and dying for freedom was all about.

    As I've noted on many other threads in the past couple of days, Michael Strahan (the owner of this site) asked that all gun control/2nd Amendment posts be made in the thread designated for that purpose.
