Jeffersonian's Home Page
Launched 12 June 2000 - Best viewed at 1024x768 or better

Welcome to my home page. My two overriding passions are the cause of Liberty, especially in defense of the Constitution & Bill of Rights of the United States of America; and the collection & study of weapons, especially firearms.
Criminals Prefer Unarmed Victims. Politicians Prefer Unarmed Peasants. I AM NONE OF THESE THINGS.

These local and national organizations fight for our right to defend ourselves and our freedom. Please give them your support.
THESE PAGES ARE BLACK IN PROTEST OF THE ONGOING VIOLATIONS OF CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS BY GOVERNMENT FORCES.

DEMOCRATS MADE ME REPUBLICAN - REPUBLICANS MADE ME LIBERTARIAN

But now... the race is on again.

On 5 October 1882, Robert Goddard, father of modern rocketry, was born in Worcester, Massachusetts.

On 14 October 1943, some three hundred condemned prisoners - Jews, Russians, Gypsies, and others - escaped from the Sobibor extermination camp in Nazi-occupied Poland.
THE NAZIS DIDN'T JUST LET THEM GO. There were no UN "Peacekeepers." HOW DID THEY GET OUT?
They fabricated WEAPONS, or STOLE them from the guards, and FOUGHT THEIR WAY OUT.
There's a lesson here. Learn it.

On 14 October 1947, Captain Charles E. "Chuck" Yeager of the United States Air Force, flying the Bell X-1, became the first man to exceed the speed of sound in controlled flight.

On 16 October 1991, a madman drove a truck through the walls of Luby's Cafeteria in Kileen, Texas, and began methodically murdering the customers. Suzanna Hupp could have stopped the ensuing massacre, but the law did not allow her to carry her concealed weapon into the cafeteria.
Disarmed by a deadly law, she watched helplessly as her own parents were murdered.
Hupp was elected to the legislature and changed the law to allow citizens to defend themselves.

On 19 October 1781 at Yorktown, Virginia, British General Charles Cornwallis surrendered his forces to the Continental Army under General George Washington, effectively ending the American War of Independence.
