a true story. the Battle of Athens (sometimes called the McMinn County War) was a rebellion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebellion) led by citizens in Athens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athens,_Tennessee) and Etowah, Tennessee (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etowah,_Tennessee), United States, against the local government in August 1946. The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of political corruption and voter intimidation. The event is sometimes cited by firearms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firearm) ownership advocates as an example of the value of theSecond Amendment (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution ) in combating tyranny (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tyranny).

Think that has ever been taught in schools here?
That WW2 heroes saw such corruption, used their 2nd Amendment rights to restore law and order?
Hell, the dem/lib school system we have now would crucify a teacher or principal that would show that film and lecture on why it was the right(and legal) thing to do.

We are racing down the road to destruction at breakneck speed and the media is screaming -faster, faster, faster people you are going too damn slow. Government, media and dem party are all linked into the same treasonous movement. All controlled by the globalists. Fact..-Tyr

Sounds more like a story of political corruption than anything else.

More like a story of a Second Amendment solution applied to a real life situation.
Bad boys brought to justice by heroes with guns, guns and guns!

Sorry gabs--I know you being a big lib the word -guns- is a curse word.
guns, guns and GUNS

I'm embarrassed to say that this is the first I've ever heard of it.
