Granted by God to man, from the beginning of time, has been the Natural Law rights to self defense and to take up arms against a tyrannical government. These Natural Law rights were put to use by the citizens of the American Colonies, through the use of firearms, in order to throw off the yoke of the oppressive regime of King George III. Subsequently, after the American War of Independence, the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1791. This amendment not only ensured that the other rights of the constitution would be safeguarded, but codified into the bedrock document of the republic the means to effectuate our God-given right to defend against enemies both foreign and domestic. As you take in this hazy NEIPA, with juicy fruitiness and mellow hop bitterness, commit yourself to not only supporting your God-given rights in the 2nd amendment, but exercising them. In other words, become a responsible firearm owner, in order to preserve the enjoyment of the fruits of liberty.
