Did you see on the National News last week that the ATF (Department of Alcohol, Tabacco, and Firearms) was recently caught breaking the law? Apparently gun shop owners, who called in suspicious purchases, were told by ATF to complete the sale and don’t worry about it. The problem is that those sales were illegal. The government claimed they needed to track the weapons to see where they went. They needed to know if the weapons went into Mexico and to drug cartel or what?
Early settlers had to fight in order to survive the challenges this land presented to them. They had to tame the land first and then develop a cooperative relationship with the natives before they could prosper in America. As if these challenges were not enough, they had to fight against England’s attempts to claim America for themselves. In addition, they had to deal with high taxation and tariffs that England placed on them for everything brought to America.
