Become “A Nation of Riflemen”: Learn How Shoot a Gun Video!

shootgunI was once told that we need to become “A Nation of Riflemen” again if we were going to be able to maintain our freedom and fan the flames of Liberty.  I think they were right.  I was thinking about the “A Nation of Riflemen” speech after I ran across a youtube video from a young man with the handle GunGuyTKD.  It was called “How To Shoot A Gun For Beginners!!”.  I thought it to be so enjoyable that I had to post it for other like minded folks such as yourselves.  Other than him being a self winchester-67a-rifleproclaimed “Northerner”, and me being a self proclaimed “Southerner” :-), I think we might be alike in several ways. I like his humor and taste.  He pulls no punches and tells it like it is. He states in the description that you are to “Learn how to safely shoot a gun in this video!“! And that you will!  He uses a .22 LR to teach his misguided friend how to shoot a rifle safely.  Just like Project Appleseed does.

The .22 LR is an amazing round to learn hchuck-lamb-and-sonow to shoot with.  If you know how to shoot you should be teaching your family and friends how to shoot.  It is a main life skill. It is required to keep our Liberty.  This video would be a great way to break the ice with your family and friends, and start talking to them about learning how to shoot.  Project Appleseed is a
good thing to work into… You can make your own Appleseed Project with your family!

“Through Project Appleseed, the Revolutionary War Veterans Association is committed to teaching two things: rifle marksmanship and our early American heritage. We do this for one simple reason, the skill and knowledge of what our founding fathers left to us is eroding in modern appleseed_8535webAmerica and without deliberate action, they will be lost to ignorance and apathy.” –  Project Appleseed Mission Statement

Thomas Jefferson wrote sometime in 1785 to his fifteen-year-old nephew, Peter Carr, regarding what he considered the best form of exercise:

“…I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks.” – Thomas Jefferson

036_edited-2-jpg_thumbnail0I kinda see this young man as maybe like a Peter Carr and I think Thomas Jefferson would be glad to see this young man teaching his weird friend such a life skill as shooting!  Thomas Jefferson also said:

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government” – Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334

It would appear as if he meant business.  George Washington also had some wise words to say about Guns pastor
in the lives of Americans.  He said:

“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good” – George Washington

In the 1500’s in Japan a man named Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who was a preeminent warrior, general, samurai, politician, and taxer of the people said:

“The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, short swords, bows, spears, firearms, or other types of arms. The possession of unn4-appleseed_doublestar_rifle_5815web-e1383153191388ecessary implements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues and tends to foment uprisings.” – Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Shogun, August 1588

In the same way as it is good for us to know  how to shoot, hunt, and defend our families and neighbors from a young age, it is also good for us to know the scriptures from a young age.

 “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in 6ffe7200b67aa8033ffb2ebfeb193a4fChrist Jesus.” – 2 Timothy 3:15 (KJB)


“Men trained in arms from their infancy, and animated by the love of liberty, will afford neither a cheap or easy conquest.” – From the Declaration of the Continental Congress, July 1775.

deuteronomy_6-7It is the same congress that formed the American Bible Society. Immediately after creating the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of scripture for the American people to have God’s word!

 “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.” – George Washington

Even JFK got into the mix before he died. He said we needed a nation of men that were ready take arms. And what better way then to teach them when they are young. (With a 22 Long Rifle, like in the video below)mpgr05b

“Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.” – John F. Kennedy

But for that to happen you have to understand that it takes a nation that has God’s moral law guiding their hearts and minds to preserve freedom.

“The Bible is the cornerstone of liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson

If you want true Liberty it has to come from God. If you get a chance go read “This Was Your Life“, “The Gun hqdefaultSlinger” and “It’s The Law“. To Learn more about that.

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but Christians;  not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ!” – Patrick Henry

In his famous speech Patrick Henry was at the Second Virginia Convention on March 20, 1775, spoke at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia. He swung the balance in convincing the convention to pass a resolution delivering Virginian troops for the Revolutionary War. Among the delegates to the convention were future U.S. Presidents Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.img02387-20120825-1134

“An appeal to arms and the God of hosts is all that  is left us. But we shall
not fight our battle alone. There is  a just God that presides over the destinies of nations. The
battle sir, is not of the strong alone. Is life so dear or  peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and  slavery? Forbid it almighty God. I know not what course others  may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death.” – Patrick Henry

Consider these words by John Adams, our second president, who also served as chairman of the American Bible Society. In an address to military leaders he said,

‘We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and true religion. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.

It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.’ – Johkjllkjn Adams


So with the understanding that we all need to be armed not only physically but spiritually please enjoy this video! It is short and sweet and I hope he makes this into a series! (Also like and subscribe! 🙂 )
