Bear Arms

silly bear. arms are for people!

         I watched the movie 'Captain Phillips' last night and was astonished to learn that no guns are allowed on those huge freight-carrying ships.  I guess it's 'international law' or something, I'm not sure.  I would think that since we have air marshalls with guns on airline flights, that we might need them on ships too.
        How helpless would we feel in America if our right to own guns was taken from us?  I think the movie exemplifies that feeling.  I mean really, how powerful do you feel with a water gun?
       Thomas Jefferson...''The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.''   and   ''In matters of style, swim with the current; In matters of principle, stand like a rock.''
