Excerpt from Governor Sarah Palin's address at NRA's Stand and Fight Rally
Indianapolis, Indiana - It's difficult to think of a speaker more fitting for NRA's Saturday Night Stand and Fight Rally than former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. An outdoorswoman who has taken down the odd moose and caribou in her day, Governor Palin manifests the bold and adventurous spirit that every sportsman longs to embody.
And if there were any questions as to her commitment to the Second Amendment, well, let's just say that tonight's address put any concerns to rest.
Just check out her opening remarks:
NRA Leadership is needed now more than ever and you all are needed now more than ever because every day we are seeing more and more efforts to strip away our Second Amendment rights. And our founders knew that our inherent right to defend life, property and freedom, it had to be enshrined in America's most perfect blueprint — to form a more perfect union.
Of course our Constitution.
And they knew that if the Second Amendment goes the rest of the Constitution is not far behind.
They are trying though. You know who they are.
Look, if you control oil, you control an economy. If you control money, you control powers. But if you control arms, you control the people. And that is what they're trying.
So let us learn from our founders. Remember back in the day, the colonist, when they stood in line to register their muskets. No? Me either? Because they didn't. They are trying.
Attorney General Eric Holder recently he reveals his idea to have government have gun owners wear special bracelets that would identify you as a gun owner.
You don't want to go there buddy.
We'll have more on Governor Palin and the rest of Saturday's rally later in the week.
