God, guns are cornerstones of America

The Second Amendment reads, “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

I trace my roots on the Odom side of my family back to 1670, Norfolk, Va., and God and guns have always been a part of our family heritage.

Please see the website of David Barton,, for more info on our Judeo-Christian American history.

Speaker of the House Robert Winthrop, 1809-1894, declared: “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled by a power within them or by a power without them; either by the Word of God or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible or by the bayonet.”

If you take away the guns from all of us, then we the people will no longer be able to protect ourselves from the criminal, the tyrannical politician, terrorists or foreign military on our shores. Meanwhile those same sick, evil people who murder innocent men, women and children will use other means to carry out what is purposed in their own minds and hearts. What we need is a spiritual revival!

One Nation under God? God bless America? In God we trust?

I highly recommend seeing the Kirk Cameron film “Monumental.”
