Protect Your Constitutional Rights and America's Sovereignty


If you are visiting this website then it's a strong bet that you have an interest in your self defense and the protection of your property. These are fundamental rights that were understood by our Founding Fathers which, among many others, they intended to protect. But these fundamental rights of life, liberty and sovereignty are under attack. They could be lost forever, and it's your fault. Yes, your fault - if you don't know our history, if you are apathetic about our governance, if you don't get involved.

Don't think that it is not up to you. It is, and there are a few simple things that you can do -should do -must do to secure your rights and America's sovereignty. First, read the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Founding Fathers wrote these documents for us -"We the People". These documents were written in simple, straightforward language easy to read and understand. Two of the biggest problems with our government today are its failure to keep things simple and our failure to actually read what is written about it. Second, register to vote and then fully implement that power by getting out and actually voting. Don't be apathetic. Be active in protecting your rights. Third, join the NRA. This grass roots organization is widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of your Second Amendment rights.
