Anyone around the Northwest Arkansas area want to meet at a local range for this? I am thinking about putting a post on my Facebook to see if anyone that doesn't own/has never shot a gun to join me at the range that day for free.

I have posted this elsewhere and will do so in this case also..

It is the soldier, not the reporter,
who has given us Freedom of Press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us Freedom of Speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.

It is the soldier, who salutes the flag,
who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag
that allows the protester to burn the flag.

Read this a number of times in different venues, it needs to be shared as much as possible, some forget about the sacrifies soldiers make, and the subtle reminders like this are always the best

I qoeted u in reference to everyone being safe and responsanble........ the solders give us our rights to demonstrate in a country of freedom of speech...., without them we are unable to live a lifestyle that we live. If it does not make sense sorry bout that....
