The Gadsen Flag was popular during The French and Indian Wars, and the American Revolution. It warned would-be tyrants not to tread on the citizenry, because the people hold the power. One of the last bastions of power retained by the people is The 2nd Amendment. This image merges the classic Gadsen Flag with the current pro-gun movement that is increasing in popularity.
The rattlesnake is wearing a tri-corner hat, and holding a Revolutionary War Musket. The overall message of this image is that the spirit of the people manifest during 1776 (aka Independence), is stronger than the ever-encroaching Orwellian society that is being forced on American Citizens. Wear this tee-shirt proudly, and let tyrants know to they should tread elsewhere.
