Today is a day of victory yes, but this is not Heller’s victory. Neither is this a victory for the NRA, the GOA, or any other mere organization.
This is a victory for the American people, from the woman sitting in hospital bed battered and raped to the elderly couple who have seen so much change in the only home they have ever known. Regardless of your faith, regardless of your race or ethnic background today is a day of victory for you.
It is a crux, a turning point, a stemming of the tide, for today you are free.
No longer must your life be in another’s hands. No longer must you rely upon the speed of the police or the mercy of the rapist or the thief. You are free to face your adversary with your head held high, and say that you will not go gently into that dark night.
Today is a day for celebration, not just for us and those here today. But for all who have come before us, bled before us. Today we honor their memory and sacrifice by taking a stand for freedom.
To all the lovers of freedom and liberty I say this:
Cherish this victory.
Indeed hold it close to your heart, for as great as this victory is, it is not complete, nor is it everlasting. For the enemies of liberty are numerous, and above all patient. We must persevere, we must continue moving forward. Whenever they try to subvert liberty we must be there, forever guarding the values this nation was founded on. One break in the line, one compromise to the liberty of one is a compromise to us all.
Enjoy today’s respite, for our struggle is far from over.
All dwarfs are by nature dutiful, serious, literate, obedient and thoughtful people whose only minor failing is a tendency, after one drink, to rush at enemies screaming "Arrrrrrgh!" and axing their legs off at the knee.
