Greetings Freedom Fighters!!!
Wednesday, July 9th is National Firearm Purchase Day!!
For the third year we celebrate National Firearm Purchase Day, in precise
opposition to the UN's policy on firearm destruction. They are planning their
conference on global gun control again this year and, well, we just simply
cannot let them get away with this. On July 9th there will be so many guns
sold that it won't matter what they destroy, we'll have them outnumbered!!!
They're at it again - U.N. to Host Global Gun-control Event
Conference backs measures to track, confiscate, destroy various weapons
See how National Firearm Purchase Day got its start in 2001 on Free Republic
Be sure to come into ARM USA July 7th thru the 12th and get a free NFPD T-shirt when you buy a gun!!! High quality 100% cotton makes this shirt an absolute must have for all true gun aficionados!!!
We will be closed for inventory through July 7th, reopening Tuesday, July 8th. While you're enjoying your holiday weekend, consider the following:
Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?
Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before
Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.
Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.
Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they?
Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.
Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.
Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his Ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.
Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.
Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.
At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.
Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.
John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.
Some of us take these liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn't. So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid.
Remember: freedom is never free!
I hope you will show your support by sending this to as many people as you
can, please. It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin.
The Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games.
Enjoy those things but take a few minutes to remember what you're celebrating.
We'll see you next week for National Firearm Purchase Day!!! Have a great
Frank & Jolynne
