We once again gather to break bread with like minded, pro rights patriots. We will meet at Bellewood Acres, 6140 Guide Meridian, WA-539, Lynden, WA 98264. We will meet at 12:00 pm (noon) in the cafe for lunch. This is a great, family friendly venue, so children are welcome to attend.

oh boomer...might wish to delete your misattributed quote:

quote:
The sentence “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” appears to be a modern augmentation. It does not appear to date back much further than its publication in a 1989 pro-Second Amendment newspaper column by Charlie Reese, and it is certainly not found among Jefferson’s recorded writings, letters, or speeches:

That sentence does not appear in the Virginia Constitution drafts or text as adopted, nor in any other Jefferson writings that we know of.
unquote.

solus, now that Jefferson's quote has been debunked, do I have to rethink my position on the Second Amendment?
well, no it was ratified and passed way, way, way before reese took poetic license & modified Jefferson's quote for his own purposes...
