Press Release from The Arkansas Sheriff’s Association on the 2nd Amendment

“The Arkansas Sheriff’s Association supports the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment rights of our citizens’. We recognize the recent increase in violence and mass shootings have raised questions relating to the sale and possession of firearms. The Arkansas Sheriff’s Association further believes that we must hold offenders responsible, not law abiding citizens.

The Arkansas Sheriff’s Association does support enforcement of the existing gun laws and the strengthening of current back ground checks including identifying individuals with mental health issues. The Arkansas Sheriff’s Association does not support legislation that restricts current gun possession or sales to our citizens that weakens our 2nd Amendment rights.

Thanks to Johnson County Sheriff, Jim Dorney, for the heads up!

The Clash of the GIANTS!!! We Must Understand! (via blogsense-by-barb)

The Clash of the GIANTS!!! We Must Understand! As I see it, there are three major global systems, three GIANTS, at play on our current stage. They are all old and well-steeped in cultural tradition among those who adhere to them. They incorporate all facets of life, from family to politics, from education to religion. The tenets of these systems are "bred" into individuals, passed down from generation to generation. The fact that these systems cover all areas of life make them extraordinarily … Read More

How Much American History do You Remember? (via blogsense-by-barb)

How Much American History do You Remember? I often hear in the media today that America has never been an truly Christian nation, and that those who presume so are deceived. Well … the evidence indicates to the contrary. OUR AMERICAN ROOTS: Many have recently argued that our beginnings were not essentially Christian. I suppose that depends on your definition of Christian, but the central focus, and the source of strength, wisdom, and consolation in the early American settlements was the … Read More

And if these, or either of them, are regulated by no certain laws, and are subject to no certain principles, and are held by no certain tenure, and are redressed, when violated, by no certain remedies, society fails of all its value; and men may as well return to a state of savage and barbarous independence. … Read More
