Dickens says it best, the passion we feel deep in our breasts to hunt. The oneness with nature and God that we feel when we're in a blind or walking the vast cornfields and crp looking for pheasants or quail cannot compare with the boring workday life most of us are forced to endure. It is this passion that gets us through our days, weeks, and seasons, until we can do it all again. And now my 10 yr old son will embark on his first season in the field. How great is this time of year?!! Good luck huntin ya all!

Reading the comments from the ForeFathers makes it very appearent they wanted the 2nd Ammendment to protect the individual right to bear arms. More people need to be shown these comments so we can get that whole "intention" argument over with.

Then Chairman Mao's comments absolutely need to be thrown back at the anti's at every chance. Ask them why they support such a communist agenda? Call em out! Let the truth be known to those who are being brainwashed by them and their friends in the media and watch more people question the anti's agenda.
