This is my first post in the Activism section so I hope this is the right place for it. Generally I stay out of the political side of things unless I am drug into it but I was thinking this morning why not celebrate my freedoms this 4th by wearing a firearm related shirt? Granted there is nothing wrong with just wearing the flag or something like that (my wife actually bought me a flag shirt to wear). The 4th is about remembering our hard fought for freedoms, not just firearms related, but every freedom we have; speech, religion, right to bare arms, ect. We wouldn't have a single one of them without brave men and women taking up arms and fighting for our freedom and paying for it with their own blood. I don't think there's ever been a better time to stand out as gun owners and make a statement given our current state of the union where almost every freedom has been questioned and attacked in some way shape or form by our leadership. I believe the simple act of wearing a firearm related shirt or hat can at very least open a door for a conversation or an educational discussion with a friend, family member, or even a perfect stranger. Also keep in mind to be polite if entering into a discussion about it and remind even the staunchest anti-gunner you may encounter that without the freedom to own and use a firearm by the common man our great country would never have existed and this great day we call Independence Day would never have happened. Wear them proudly my friends!
