Let none of us forget that Memorial Day is a time to remember the Americans who gave their lives to preserve our freedom, and we can’t forget our wounded warriors, either.
Yes, we’re still fighting our own politicians to keep some of those rights, as any gun owner who has listened to Hillary Clinton’s rants against the NRA (and, by extension, its five million plus members). But we can’t shape our future if we don’t understand our past.
I don’t particularly need to do any shooting on Memorial Day, but I always try to do so. The sound of gunfire in good people’s hands is the sound of freedom, a one-gun salute to those who gave their lives for the rights we enjoy.
Feel free to share here your plans for recognizing Memorial Day, as well as your memories of those in your family and circle of friends whose sacrifices we honor.
