Jesse Minton for Gold and Guns

posted on August 3, 2015
Jesse Minton, an 11-year-old boy from Indianapolis, Indiana, is very different from your average pre-teen. This past July he established himself as a Gold medal World Champion in Taekwondo and, just as importantly, he is a proud and adamant supporter of the Second Amendment.
When Jesse was just little lad, he was given a pocket version of the U.S. Constitution by Congressman Sodrel, and just like his first time participating in Taekwondo, Jesse was not only hooked but he immersed himself in it. Lead by his parents, who are both NRA Pistol certified, Jesse was versed on gun awareness and safety, spoke at a Second Amendment rally at the Indiana Statehouse, and is practicing his marksmanship with a Red Ryder BB gun.

“Our Founding Fathers wanted us to be free, but without the Constitution there is no freedom. The United States of America was born of the dream that we could live free from tyranny. The Right to Bear Arms guarantees our ability to protect our Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion,” Jesse says of the Second Amendment.
