This Gunpowder green tea’s leaves are rolled into tiny pellets to resemble gun powder. It’s a strong tea to represent one of the most iconic and useful firearms, which can be used for hunting, self-defense, and dispatching terrorists and tyrants. There are 20 tea bags in each pouch. That is sure to pack a punch, and keep you energized to fight for your freedoms each day.

We believe the AR-15 is a great symbol of liberty and freedom due to its demonization and constant calls to ban it. The people who don’t know guns, know the name of the AR-15, think it looks so “scary”, has been dubbed “Assault Rifle”, which is what they think the AR stands for. It is customizable, can work for many different needs, the ammo for it is usually pretty easy to find. Politicians often argue that it’s a fully automatic rifle.
Here are some of the RIDICULOUS and nonsensical things our politicians say about AR-15s and guns, in general:
- Representative Sheila Jackson Lee: “I’ve held an AR-16 in my hand, I wish I hadn’t. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving and the bullet that is utilized, a .50 caliber, these kinds of bullets, need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street.”
- Former New York Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington: “But some of these bullets as you saw have an incendiary device on the tip o fit, which is a heat-seeking device, so you don’t shoot deer with a bullet that size. If you do, you could cook it at the same time.”
- State Senator Kevin de Leon: “This is a ghost gun. This right here has the ability with a .30 caliber clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second. Thirty magazine clip in half a second.”
- Senator Dianne Feinstein: “We have federal regulations and state laws that prohibit hunting ducks with more than three rounds. And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-rounds magazines.”
- President Joe Biden (when he was Vice President): “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”
- New York Representative Carolyn McCarthy when asked what the barrel shroud was: “it’s the shoulder thing that goes up.”
- Former Press Secretary James Brady: “For target shooting, that’s okay. Get a license and go to the range. For defense of home, that’s why we have police departments.”
Clearly, these officials in office have our best in mind because they are all so knowledgeable about guns…*cue eye roll*
They also clearly misunderstand the point of the Second Amendment. Many politicians for some reason, go to arguments regarding hunting. When they do this it is easy to see they have no understanding of the Second Amendment. Some will also misunderstand the Second Amendment in a way that leads them to believe that it is only the government that has the right to bear arms or that you must be in the militia to bear arms. First off, why would the government need to allow itself to bear arms? Second, the Bill of Rights in all but the 10th amendment, pertain directly to the whole of the citizenry and the second is between other amendments that pertain to the people. This is another one that is easily debunked. The third argument that only the militia is allowed to bear arms is odd because of the linguistic structure of the amendment. The first part is only a reason for the people to have the right not a requirement of the people to use the right. These are obviously very limited and quick answers to these poorly thought out arguments, but there are many places online that you can get more thorough arguments against these. How about we just look at what the founders thought about firearms and and the second amendment.
Here are a few quotes from the Founders:
- “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” – Thomas Jefferson
- “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.” – Thomas Jefferson
- “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” – Thomas Jefferson
- “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin
- “To disarm the people…was the most effectual way to enslave them.” – George Mason
- “I ask who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.” – George Mason
- “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.” – Noah Webster
- “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of.” – James Madison
- “A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves…and include, according to the past and general usuage of the states, all men capable of bearing arms… “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.” – Richard Henry Lee
- “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.” – Patrick Henry
- “The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” – Samuel Adams
As you can see, not one of these people that believed the 2nd amendment had anything to do with the government bearing arms. Their quotes speak for themselves.
Kyle Rittenhouse Trial
The reason we have included some information regarding the Kyle Rittenhouse trial on this tea is that we believe this is one of the most important trials puts self-defense on the stand. It would have set an incredibly terrible precedent for self-defense if he had been found guilty. We saw the incident footage from many angles in the few days after the incident, and it was extremely clear that all the things Rittenhouse did were standard self-defense. We would also argue that his actions, restraint, and instincts were better than many people who have been carrying weapons for much longer than he has even been alive. None of the things even required the Stand Your Ground or Castle doctrine defense that has been so hotly discussed. Ultimately, we believe it should have never gone to court in the first place, but it is good that we were able to see all of the terrible arguments used by the prosecutors and their own witnesses that helped Rittenhouse be acquitted. If you have not watched this trial, or would like to see the many hours of it with input from many different attorneys, then check out the Rekieta Law Youtube Page.
