From the board of the North Carolina Firearms Coalition, I want to wish you a great Memorial Day!
As we honor the memory of those who have given their lives to protect the freedoms we enjoy today, it’s important to remember what those heroes fought for.
They paid the price so you and I can speak, worship, associate and live freely with each other and not worry about a dictator sending a band of men armed with machetes to rape and murder our families like they do in other countries.
They thought the freedoms and liberties we enjoy today were so great and excellent they were willing to pay the price of freedom.
They paid that price in full — in blood.
Without these men, the convictions that motivated them and the firearms in their hands, America might still be a colony of the British Empire.
So to those who have gone before us and paved the path to freedom with their own blood, we salute you.
Chairman Tom Walker
