Maybe the Mississippi Church Is Right. : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread

They take there elderly to get groceries under shotgun escort. Lately they added the same protection to any member asking for it. WHY NOT do that for our friends and family? Why should we allow any member of our community feel afraid? We (yes I mean You and I) can take it upon ourselves to aid in this confusing and horrific time. WHY not escort our community elderly and anyone else thats frightened?

WHY NOT? Because our locale LEA would most likely shoot us.

Cold hard fact. In Mississippi They have been doing it for over 18 months. It really does bear investigation. I could become necessary for us (homesteadears) as well.

There I was in the grocery store two days ago, riding along in one of those really nifty handicapped scooter things (wish it would go faster though), with my fully-loaded,chambered, perfectly legal 9mm sitting on my lap in my opened purse should I have needed it. I adore my permit to carry a concealed's a lesson for all potential criminals; beware of grey-haired middle-aged handicapped women riding scooters in a public place..we are armed and dangerous LOL.....

All the Little Old Ladies I know are armed while shopping. They are armed ALL the time and our LEAs are very respectful of them, too. My favorite Little Old Lady gets around with a walker, is blind in one eye and can't see out of the other and can't remember which "eye" she shoots with. She can shoot with either "eye" and shoots the heads off any birds that come in her yard. Ya think some punk is going to mess her? I don't think so!

I love the Daughters of the Pioneers!

Our community is so backwoods, nobody bats an eyelash when someone walks through the grocery store with a gun or boys on bicycles ride through town with rifles strapped on their backs.

HHHHMMMMMMM.........Makes me think.....Is this why the UN and Clintonistas want to force everyone out of the hills and forests into the cities?

Got to agree with you, especially your last thought. It is so evident and obvious that I can't believe everyone can't see it. I guess they don't remember history. Look at all the situations around the world that we have stuck our nose into. Many of these were because one side was armed and the other side was not. Bosnia and Somalia for examples.

I guess if the UN rules the world I want to be on the first spaceship to wherever.

Talk to you later.
