April 19, 1775


Today in the CounterClckWise house, it's 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and New Year's all rolled into one. One of the great blows for human freedom was struck on this day when patriots gathered on Lexington Green to fight against gun-grabbin' tyranny. In a great American version of "Molon Labe," militia Captain John Parker told his men:

Stand your ground
Don't fire unless fired upon
But if they mean to have a war
Let it begin here

Truly a proud day to be an American extremist clinging to my guns. See y'all at the range or for BBQ after!
