Trust us. We are the people of the free States of America

Trust us. We are the people.


"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."   Benjamin Franklin

Our founding fathers understood that our vast population was made of good and virtuous individuals and that was the basis for a free society. The body of the people are the significant policing force, not just the few dressed in blue.

"...arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them." Thomas Paine: -- Thoughts on Defensive War, (1775.)


WA state laws have made it very difficult for the honest citizen to legally carry in a variety of places, open or otherwise and the criminals and the criminally insane know it; hence "Gun Free Zones" are nothing more than "Free killing zones." When you need the police in 3 seconds they are only 3 minutes away. Great!


"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." Thomas Jefferson:-- Quoting 18th Century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in On Crimes and Punishment (1764)

Likewise at Fort Hood, and Virginia Tech and Columbine it was rules and restrictions and short sighted gun bans that set the stage and invited the utter human carnage. It was the Lawmakers who failed to place their trust in the people that virtually lined up the victims and pulled the trigger.
The Constitution preserves "the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation...(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms."-- James Madison: The Federalist #46.

It is time that our government stop acting afraid and return the power to the people and trust the body to assist in policing ourselves. If that madman who recently attacked the unsuspecting police was just as wary of every patron in the diner as the men in blue a far different outcome would have been. If that terrorist traitor at Fort Hood knew he was walking into a likely wall of return fire, he would never have even attempted. If the crazy man from Virginia knew when he locked that door that he would be killed after the 1st few shots by fellow students virtuously defending the innocent, he might have just dispatched himself and been done with his internal misery.
There is every reason to believe in your fellow man. Statistics show that the police are more likely to misuse their weapons than those with concealed carry as we know we will be held to the fire with no mercy or support if we misuse. On the whole, we are very careful.

Trust us. We are the people of the free States of America.
