Hello everyone, welcome to the Blog of an American Rifleman. I am a Soldier, self-described Patriot, and Cadet at the Virginia Military Institute. I am a proud American and I believe there are certain things in the world worth defending and fighting for and against.
I am also a student of the doctrine and ideals of the Founding Fathers of our country and I am also interested in the interpretations and commentary on the U.S. Constitution. I believe the founding of our country was a unique event in the history of human civilization, unlike anything that has ever occurred before or since. I believe that every person has unalienable rights that are (or should be) self-evident, that every person has the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I also vehemently believe that every person has the right to defend these rights against those that would take them away.
I believe that the ability of a citizenry to "keep and bear arms" is the true mark of a free society. When all ability to resist tyranny and defend freedom has been taken away, there is none. I am a member of the National Rifle Association and I am proud of it. They work hard to fend off and shut down those that have tried, are trying, and will try to take our rights away and I will always support the NRA for this reason.
I promote and endorse responsible firearms ownership and firearms-related activities. I want to stress to people that owning a firearm does mean that a person is "crazy" or a threat to a peaceful society. Firearms ownership is an American tradition, a sport, a hobby, part of our heritage, and an individual right imbued within the very fabric of our nation itself.
I align myself with neither Democrat or Republican party, I am a traditionalist viewing the world with a modernized lens. I view the world as it is and look up to what I'd like it to be and try to make it so. I do not believe in voting for the unpopular "middle of the road" candidates, so I do pick a side between the two and vote accordingly and I do this because I vote for results and not for making statements.
Much of my description of myself sounds propagandist and rhetorical but I truly love my country and firmly believe every individual has the right to firearms ownership. God Bless America!
