An Effort Worth Getting Behind

As an active duty soldier, I like to keep my gun blog politics-free and light-hearted, but every now and then there's an issue worth taking note of and getting behind. I first came across this video because I follow Ron Paul's Facebook page and to be honest, I really had no idea what it was about. I'm glad I clicked and watched because not only is the woman who is at the center of this video extremely attractive, she's also extremely passionate about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which makes her even more attractive. I'm not kidding. All kidding aside, her heart is in the right place and we definitely need more people like her.

Her organization is PANDA

... which stands for People Against the National Defense Authorization Act. She and her organization are bringing attention to certain provisions of the NDAA which should raise eyebrows. Organizations like PANDA and women like Daphne Lee are vital to efforts such as these because most people are too busy keeping up with the Kardashians to take notice of the implications that something like the NDAA have on American citizens.

The most shocking provisions of the NDAA allow for the detention of American citizens, without being charged, on American soil for merely being suspected of, or being associated with terrorism.

Please watch the video, familiarize yourself with the NDAA and please support PANDA by making a donation or getting involved. This needs to be fixed.

The ACLU also has an info page on the NDAA here - https://www.aclu.org/blog/tag/ndaa
