    It would never happen in America.... but it did in 1946. Want to know why we have the 2nd amendment, well here you go. This is a true story.

    A little bit of history

    Battle of Athens (TN) - 1946
    I was completely unaware of this event that took place in Athens, TN. in 1946. I did not know an armed revolt by WWII veterans ever took place during our lifetime. A very sobering video to say the least.
    Now the second amendment is a little clearer.

    Be sure to see the actual photos at the end showing the plaques describing the event.

    It would be unwise for me to say that it would never happen in America..If it does, a lot of people will die and I will probably be one of them..If one gives up his/her gun than that one looses their freedom.. Harshly and sadly-- that is the way it will most likely be..When I joined the service, I took an oath to protect the constitution and my Country from enemies foreign and domestic.. I never got '' De-programed''..L
