Well, welcome to the leadership podcast. I'm Jeff out on. I've been a licensed firearm dealer for 13 years. And I'm passionate about supporting the second amendment rights. In this podcast, we're going to cover various topics related to the second movement. Plus any of the topics of the day that are interesting or relevant. I might slip into my history, sports or movie topics occasionally. I hope you find this informative and can take away at least one little nugget each week that you didn't know. So this is our, 4th of July. We can now we're celebrating. And we're celebrating that, but independence and creation of this, of this great country. And during these times here, Right now, sometimes it's a little bit easy to forget how great this country is and where we've come from. But this is a great weekend to share it and understand it. And, So last week I talked about. one of the very first gun confiscation incidents that happened that just turned out terribly wrong. And it was, when the seventh Calvary trying to. disarm. They ate some of the food Indians and, over 300 ends up dying women and children. Well, this week I thought I would go back even a little further in history. Talk about another attempted gun confiscation that actually, led to the creation of this country. It wasn't one of those leading factors. So by the root bridge that arch the flood, their flag to April's breeze, unfurled ear. Once the embattled farmer stood and fired, the shot heard around the world. That's a first stanza of the Concorde him. Written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and then that he is talking about the battle of Lexington and Concord. So we all think. The shot heard around the world. It's what, many people attribute to the, the actual, the beginning of the revolutionary war. But, how did it get there? Well, Tensions had already been building up in the, in the colonies for quite some time. It started in 1764. When you know, the great Britain started acting a variety of different. Taxes. On the colonies, the sugar act, the stamp act towns and act. generated a lot of resentment around the commies and they were, you know, the cry of taxation without representation. Then then, Boston's in Boston in 1770, we had the, the Boston massacre. In 1773, we had the Boston tea party. And. By this time, you know, tensions are, are, are really ramping up, in 1774. King George shutdown, the Boston Harbor. so that they couldn't import or export any goods. So again, things were getting, Very heated. Well, then in April of 70 17, 75. The sons of Liberty Joseph form heard from a source at the. British troops, the Redcoats marched in co going to Concord. To confiscate a, Weapons cache that the. Kind of revolutionary. He said he had been storing up. And, so again, this was the first attempt where the government was going to attempt to confiscate firearms. And. This is where we run into the story of Paul Revere. And it's great. Right. one of by land two by sea. the two lanterns for ELLs. Up. And Paul Revere, William Dawes, set out on their Trek to, to alert the calmness that the. The rig, it's not the British. We hear it. A lot of this at the British are coming the brochure coming, but. He wouldn't have said that because they, most of them considered themselves with British still at that point in time. Plus he wouldn't be yelling at because they were trying to keep this very quiet, but, The, Paul Revere and doors, end up running into, Samuel Prescott. they made their way through the countryside. Paul Revere. Got captured. dos. So off his horse and Prescott didn't actually be again, be the only one that, completed his journey. But as the troops had gotten to Concord, The columnists had already moved the weapons and there was a standoff. And as a. Search for the arms. a shot was fired out. Nobody really knows who fired that shot. buy it then, Ghana, volley of fire, back and forth. The, to the, Calmness. pursued the British or the red coats. All the way back to Boston. Now they, Well, not that successful. there was about 250. red coats were, Wounded or killed and 90. on the, con the side. Well wonder killed, but they, it did show. That we had what it took to stand up against the British. And then, a few months later in June of 1775. The Americans were barely defeated at the battle of bunker Hill. And again, this, again, suit and strengthen the confidence that the small little, Set of rebels could potentially stand up against what was the greatest power. Military power of its time. And this is how the revolutionary war. And. good. Impetus of it. Was the attempt of the British to confiscate the firearms of, of the militia, the calmness and in control. Now. And again, so this is just another. Piece of evidence why our second move and was put into place. Why is it important and why we need to stand by and support it? I hope you've enjoyed your, or join me for the July weekend and be safe. And we will talk to you next weekend.
