Against the grain

A famous photograph is circulating around the internet that shows a lone worker refusing to give the Nazi salute when everyone around him is saluting. Although the pedigree of the non-saluter has been disputed, the facts are that on June 13, 1936 at the Blohm + Voss shipyard in Hamburg Germany at the launching of the training vessel Horst Wessel, one man refused give the Nazi salute at the launch, folding his arms over his chest. Although it may not seem as brave as charging a machine gun nest, imagine standing among your coworkers, in the height of the power of the Nazi regime, and refusing to comply. Bold is too small a word. Although some identify the man as August Landmesser, and others as Gustav Wegert, there’s no doubt that on that day, one man was incredibly brave and refused to go along with the mob.

What role will you play?

With the resurgence of the assault on the 2nd amendment, all Americans should understand that everyone has a role to play. You will have to decide what yours will be. For some this means arguing with your friends on the internet, for others they may join the NRA, others still will back certain political parties. No matter what side you are on, people are mobilizing right now in the attack and in the defense of the 2nd amendment. Who will win is as undecided as it was during the American Revolution. But the best defense of a right, is the exercise of that right. When you train at Texas Pistol & Rifle Academy, you are exercising the right to bear arms enshrined in the Bill of Rights. The ability to shoot and having the resolve to do so is part and parcel of what it means to be an American. You can do your part by training at TPA with a pistol, shotgun, M4 carbine and bolt rifle. Throughout history, only a people that could defend themselves had the ability to live freely.

Call Josh Duhon today (214) 663-3910 and exercise your freedoms enshrined in the Bill of Rights, even if it means going against the grain.
