As the sun rose on this day in 1775, shots were fired. British troops had been ordered to capture and destroy arms possessed by Massachusetts citizens. The armed colonists fought back, the American Revolution is said to have begun, culminating in the Second Amendment, guaranteeing what the British had attempted to destroy. The Battles of Lexington and Concord are commemorated on this day in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as "Patriots' Day."
America is based on the right of the people to overthrow the government.
April 19, 1993 is An Anniversary That We Must Never Forget, says Anthony Gregory. But one can only forget what one was first conscious of, and America has never really been conscious of the real dimensions of the federal assault on the Branch Davidians, the lies and cover-ups of the incineration of nearly 100 men women and children, and the depth of statism (worship of The State) in a nation whose Declaration of Independence says we have a duty to abolish a tyrannical State.
Waco had something to do with the bombing in Oklahoma City two years later. More by Anthony Gregory:

Under cross-examination, state child-welfare investigator Angie Voss conceded there have been no allegations of abuse against babies, prepubescent girls or any boys.

"Teachings" = "abuse"
More specifically, "teachings" not approved by the government.
This is a repeat of Waco.
Angie Voss played a role at the Waco invasion. A low-level state bureaucrat has the right to destroy the institutions of church and family if they don't bow before the altar of the State.
In other contexts, teachings not approved by the government = "terrorism." And certainly "teachings" combined with the exercise of 2nd Amendment rights, as at Waco, will bring the full force of government upon you.
What would Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and Paul Revere have said about these government raids? Which children are more likely to know who these men were: the home-educated mormons or the average state-educated secularists?
