2. Exercise Your 2nd Amendment Right – The Right to Keep and Bear Arms was established so that Americans could always protect themselves from tyranny and oppression. We at Nine Line feel that this is one of the most important Amendments in the Bill of Rights, so that we at citizens can always ensure our personal freedom and independence. A concealed carry jacket is the perfect accessory for a 2nd Amendment advocate.

4. Hang an American Flag – Our flag represents the efforts of our forefathers to build our great democracy, and the lives of the brave men and women who have served, and continue to serve, in our armed forces. The Flag should not be stomped on or burned; it should be hung with honor and respect.

5. Thank a Veteran – Too often, veterans are mistreated or neglected, in spite of the immense sacrifice that they have given for our nation. If you see a veteran, offer them thanks. Supporting Veteran Owned businesses is another great way to support those who gave so much for our freedom.
