Never forget Wounded Knee Massacre

THE LARGEST MASS SHOOTING IN US HISTORY HAPPENED December 29,1890. When 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota were murdered by federal agents & members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The Calvary began shooting, and managed to wipe out the entire camp. 200 of the 297 victims were women and children.

Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.

The Second Amendment, the right of the people to take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in the face of invading armies or an oppressive government. The Second Amendment was written by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe, and it refers to the right of American citizens to be armed for defensive purposes, should such tyranny arise in the United States.

Wounded Knee is the prime example of why the Second Amendment exists, and why we should vehemently resist any attempts to infringe on our Rights to Bear Arms. Without the Second Amendment we will be totally stripped of any ability to defend ourselves and our families.

This should Never had happened. Support Second Amendment

Same thing happened with the Sand Creek Massacre. The murderous acts of our government occurred on November 29, 1864 where troops under the leadership of Colonel John Chivington attacked the indians. They tricked the Cheyenne and Arapaho with the offer of being under the protection of Fort Lyon and were told to hunt and fish near Sand Creek. They were gunned down, with more than half of them being women and children. They were unarmed because the understanding was they wouldn’t need to be armed, because the government, The leadership and troops of Ft. Lyon would protect them. STAY ARMED!!!
