Is Walking On The American Flag A Right?

In Articles, Bill of RIghts, Constitution, Education, Liberalism, Politics, Rants by Staff Writer0 Comments

The United States Flag seems to have become a central theme in protests and patriotism lately. Flag desecration has been a long standing form of protest against the United States as a whole or in protest of specific grievances or policies. Though States and even the federal government have attempted to pass legislation to protect the flag, The Supreme Court has ruled TWICE that flag desecration is protected free speech, symbolic speech to be exact. Since Michelle Manhart “rescued” a flag from desecration (being walked on) at Valdosta State University, America has become fixated on the flag, both as a means of protest or getting attention and as a symbol of pride and patriotism.

Why carry a dangerous “weapon”? I’ll counter that question with another: what is so important to you that you can’t imagine anything bad happening to it? A brick isn’t dangerous until it is set in motion. At that point it is a weapon. A firearm is only as dangerous as I make it, and only in relation to a bad person with malicious intentions should it be considered dangerous. I originally decided to begin carrying, it was because I love my sister’s kids so much that even hearing them breathe is one of the best sounds in my world. I started paying attention to how unpredictable human life is and how many people were becoming statistics due to their lack of ability to defend themselves. I grew to want a firearm more for self-protection after watching this world change.

Should Kids Be Allowed To Access Firearms With Supervision?

How many of us safely handle firearms every day? How many of us do so around children? As a firearms owner it is my responsibility to ensure that my firearm is accounted for and either stored safely or in my possession at all times. There is no if, ands or buts about this. My firearm, my responsibility. However, there are a couple of instances in the news right now regarding children in possession of firearms. Not only did they have possession of the firearms, but they brought them into school unbeknownst to their parents. Thankfully no one was injured in either situation.
