Here are some links to information and a video about an event that happened in Athens Tennessee 66 years ago last August 2nd.
This exemplifies why we have a 2nd Amendment to our Constitution that reserved the right of the people to bear arms in their defense. Remember the words “shall not be infringed” when you view the video. It is a compelling example of why we have a Second Amendment to our Bill of Rights that needs to be preserved at ALL COSTS..
Of course many people will just poo poo this as ancient history but this is something that happened during quite recent history.
View the video which is best to watch in full screen, several links are below with newspaper accounts of the time and more general information.
