After the swearing in of new Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch yesterday, Gun Owners of America Executive Director Rich Pratt said to Fox News, “we just spent the past eight years on the defensive. Now we are playing offensive ball,” said Larry Pratt’s son Erich, his successor as Executive Director of the organization he served for so many years.
This will be GOA Executive Director Emeritus Larry Pratt’s third time in the past four years as the keynote speaker at the Freedom Leadership Conference, and our first annual celebration of Patriots’ Day, when the American revolution began with the battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775 and “the shot heard round the world.” Patriots’ Day is actually an official holiday celebrated next Wednesday, April 19 in Massachusetts and Maine on the third Monday of April every year.
As the keynote speaker at our very first Freedom Leadership Conference 18 years ago in California, Congressman Tom McClintock said, it isn’t just about guns. If liberals can curtail our firearms freedoms in spite of the clear protection of the 2nd amendment to the Constitution, said the then State Senator McClintock, then what else can they do to our rights? (the full remarks of our first Honorary Conference Co-Chairman and future United States Congressman at the June 9, 2001 Western Conservative Conference, later changed to Freedom Leadership Conference, HERE).
An example of the abridgment and diminishment of clearly spelled out rights occurs at the border of certain states in America. If you have a “permit” to carry a firearm in one state, but drive through the border of another state, you can end up in jail if they simply refuse to recognize the other state’s law.
Gays of course, demand and get recognition across state lines for their gay marriage.
Your drivers’ license works across state lines.
So why not allow the 2nd amendment as our “permit” – our right to keep and bear arms – across all state lines too?
That’s just one of many examples of how liberals have curtailed our freedom, and how we have our work cut out for us to restore our freedoms earned in the American revolution starting in 1775..
Larry Pratt knows very well it isn’t just about guns. It is about freedom. We are very excited to have him as our keynote speaker next Thursday and hope you will join us to celebrate Patriots’ Day in Chantilly, Virginia. Register now HERE.
