Firearms in the defense of Liberty made Independence day possible, Gun Pride Month is a commemoration of that fact.
The 4th of July and the independence of the United States of America wouldn’t have been possible without the force to defend Liberty. At present there are many of the nation’s socialist Left who obsess over depriving the people of that force. This will be a month-long celebration of firearms in the defence of Liberty.
Authoritarian Socialism can only be imposed by a force of arms.
The blunt fact is that the Left’s socialist national agenda can only be imposed at the point of a gun, this is why they obsess over depriving the people of their commonsense human Liberty of self-defense. Toward this end, the Liberty grabbers of the Left are working day and night to stigmatize guns and gun ownership, so this is a direct response echoing the founding fathers’ conceptions in the defense of Liberty. The Untied States became the greatest nation on earth because of foundational limitations on governmental power, with the most important being the common sense human right of self-defense.
Gun Confiscation sparked the Revolutionary War.
It is important to note that what became the war for independence began when his majesty’s troops tried to deprive the colonials of their fundamental human Liberties with gun confiscation. An idea the Left obsesses over now. They can only do so by denigrating gun ownership/Liberty culture along with the tactics of divide and conquer. This entails attacking parts culture of Liberty culture in detail, attempting to defeat those portions before moving on to other sections. Thus they are going after those scary looking guns that have falsely labelled as ‘Military style’. Were they to succeed in depriving the people of their venerable AR-15s, they would soon enough go after another segment of Liberty culture.
The primary lesson of Gun Pride Month.
There would be no Bill of Rights were it not for the commonsense human Liberty of self-defence. In other words “Without the 2nd there would be no 1st”. That firearms are the last bulwark of Liberty, epitomised by this quote from Hubert H. Humphrey:
Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used, and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.
Senator Hubert H. Humphrey,
Comm.: Foreign Relations Minnesota
Firearms serve as a check on government power, a force possessed by the people that preserves their Liberty. The reality is that the Left obsesses over the deprivation of this fundamental human right because they want over control of the people, that is the bottom line of their Liberty grabber agenda.
The Schedule of events for Gun Pride Month.
So now that we’ve explained the reason for the season, this is the tentative outline for the festivities. During the month long celebration, each day of the week will have it’s own special designation:
#BLOATMondays [Buy Lots Of Ammo Today] – This should need no explanation. One cannot defend Liberty without the tools to do so. This includes practice ammunition to maintain what are very perishable skills. For you Liberty grabber Leftists out there, this means that someone with a few thousand rounds means they prefer to be safe, properly maintaining their skills.
#DGUTuesdays – a weekly celebration of that which the Liberty grabbers claim never happens.
#Freedom Fridays – The day for everyone to bring another freedom defender into the fold showing them how to select and buy a new gun – how else are we going to reach the goal of 200 million gun owners with 700 Million guns?
#SaturdayShoots – Practice makes perfect and it’s lots of fun.
Week Long Celebrations.
Each week of the month of July will focus on some of the very important parts of Liberty Culture.
- The first week will celebrate the 4th of July and the AR-15: The Modern Day Musket.
- Week two will honour the organisations that defend our vital civil Liberties from the scourge of Socialism – the NRA, Gun Owners of America [GOA] as well as other civil rights organisations.
- The third week of the month of July will commemorate all of the Pre-Constitution repeating firearm technologies the Socialist-Left would like to pretend never existed.
- Next we will have Guns save Lives week focusing on deterrence and the millions of times each year that firearms preserve life.
- Finally, week 5 will be a tip of the hat to all of the Liberty grabbers that have helped boost memberships in those aforementioned Civil Rights organisations the civil rights and caused more and more people to buy more and more guns. This will be a half week recognition of their unwitting contributions to the cause of Liberty that cannot be underestimated.
We will add special events such as Eugene Stoner day as time permits. Now go out there and celebrate Liberty – it will be well worth it just to upset the Leftists.
Video: What is a Classical Liberal?
A short video making the point that the Left is no longer Liberal, having traded individualism for collectivism.
In one of their first animated video shorts, the Rubin Report discusses the vitally important topic of just who is a Classical Liberal.
OUR FIRST ANIMATED VIDEO! What is a Classical Liberal?
Liberalism has been confused with Leftism or progressivism, which is actually has nothing to do with classical Liberalism. Sadly the Left is no longer Liberal at all for it has traded individualism for collectivism.

$.02: When is it OK to quit church?
Chris Sonsken of South Hills Church and founder Church BOOM penned a piece on Fox News that caught my attention on Twitter. It was a good column. Read the article here. The article addressed a Pew Research finding as to why people change churches. There finding as shown by Sonsken are:
- Sermon quality
- Welcoming environment/people
- Style of worship
Sonsken does a great job in arguing that there are biblically sound reasons for leaving a church and finding a new one.
1. It’s OK to leave if God calls us to leave.
2. It’s OK to leave for family and marriage.
3. It’s OK to leave a church if you have moved too far away to conveniently drive to your church.
4. It’s OK to leave if you cannot follow the church’s leadership.
5. It’s OK to leave if heresy is being preached.
Sonsken even mentions that unethical practices like abuse are reasons to leave, though not the norm for the majority of church swapping.
The reasons Sonsken gave are no cause for disagreement, and I’m sure his book Quit Church probably better articulates them.
Where I want to add my two sense on the matter is that I disagree with his assessment sermon quality is not a biblical reason for changing churches. The supposition that sermon quality is inherently a result of the person treating church like an object of consumption, as Sonsken suggests is not true. I believe sermon quality is an umbrella term for several reasons for not liking a Sunday message.
Too often people leave a church because of disagreement, not getting their way, or because the sermons are no longer deep enough. Often when we dig into the reason the sermons are not deep enough, it ultimately goes back to the person being offended or not having their faulty theologies endorsed from the pulpit. The same pastor who was previously deep enough becomes shallow once there is an offense. It’s incredibly difficult to hear from God in a sermon when we are offended by the person delivering the sermon.
This is true in many cases. A sin that is personal gets preached on and the offended party leaves. I don’t deny this to be the case. But I believe we should look deeper into the current trends of worship and focus on the mission of the church.
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-21 ESV
The church is to preach the gospel, but people accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior is only part of the mission. The Church is tasked with making disciples. The church is meant to teach. Not every follower is at the same level in their spiritual maturity or theological depth. Some churches, larger churches in particular dumb down the bible. In public education, this would be seen as lowering the bar. In church this practice could hold back believers in their growth. Small groups are a way to supplement this, and every church should employ bible study as a means to grow discipleship.
Many churches now are focused on metrics. This can lead to theologically watered down sermons and worship. Why risk offending that person who may leave with a sermon? But if a church is more focused on using a Sunday message to give a motivational speech using an out of context passage, what does it matter if they are doctrinally sound (in their written beliefs)?
There are a lot of heretical churches in America. We have issues like gay marriage to separate the sheep from the goats. But what about the sheep that suck? If a church has the right doctrine but is more focused on metrics than the power of the Holy Spirit, their head is in the wrong place. So it is biblically sound to change churches so that your head to remains in the right place.
That is not treating church like a consumer product. That is treating church like one’s means to grow spiritually, better recognizing the mission of the Great Commission.
That is my $.02 on the matter. I hope I added some meaningful word to this topic.

Video: So, You Think You’re Tolerant?
Leftists like to fancy themselves as being tolerant and Liberal, but they fall way short in both qualities.
Leftists will tell you that they are the most tolerant people who have ever lived, they will also scream at you for being a racist, xenophobic troglodyte if you happen to mention that you’re a conservative. They are supposedly ‘Liberal’, being in favour of Liberty while demanding it’s polar opposite – socialism.
Yes, if there is one constant in the universe, its that Leftists cannot be honest about who they truly are. This is what we love about our wonderful opponents on the nation’s socialist Left, for they are nothing like another group that went by the same nomenclature who also screamed at people in the streets with the motto: Common Good Before Individual Good. [Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz]
But let’s not talk about the epithets they project on their enemies, let’s talk about how they get along with everyone who just happens to agree with everything they say. A new PragerU video featuring Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report looked at who is really tolerant. He is a true Liberal that discovered that it is actually the Pro-Liberty Right that is more tolerant, go figure.

Are you tolerant? You probably think so. But who is tolerant in America today? Is it those on the left, or those on the right? In this video, Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report analyzes this question and shares his experience.
