I am sure we can all agree on this nugget of news. The world has been told, the American Government has spent billions of dollars arming (giving guns) to people in the Middle East. No surprise there.
When defending the action of giving guns to people (fast and furious, Benghazi, Syria, al Qaeda etc…) the administration has declared that they are arming the oppressed people. These are the same people that are fighting back the tyranny of an authoritarian dictator in the Middle East.
So let us look at this idea of people needing weapons to defend themselves against a tyrannical government. It is an interesting concept.
Is the administration saying that the Middle Eastern people need them to defend themselves against the governments in the Middle East because the leaders and government are oppressive and tyrannical?
Are they saying they need well armed militia in order to preserve their nation?
Is it because the governments of places like Iran and Saudi are killing unarmed people over their religious conviction or sexual persuasion?
Is it because women and children, both male and female, are entered into sex slave markets by these governments?
Well, that has been their argument.
The same American government has taken a position on guns in America. That position is you and I should not be allowed to have them.
It seems that we now need to be restricted in our use, ownership and ability to carry our weapons at home because lithium laced Ritalin popping young common core products are going bat crap crazy from the psychotropic induced fog in their heads.
It seems the Administration and the lemmings following their lead want to not only De-Ball the American people but they want to take away our right to self-defense and preservation. Because of course tyranny could never happen in America.
The proponents will tell you; of course we have nothing to worry about. Our Government is no place even close to tyrannical (cough) or in a position to become more autocratic and authoritarian. Don’t worry. The government will keep you safe! Right after they create a National Gun registry.
I’ll tell you what, in the interest of unity and cooperation how about we declare November Gun Free Month in America.
To demonstrate the resolve and complete lack of need for personal protection the entire White House staff and First Family will not have any weapons. They will just lock them away and declare their space a gun free zone. Then, the security personnel will do the same. They will wear a t-shirt stating that you are entering a gun free space. Sort of like the college campuses and movie theaters.
Oh and the Democratic puppets in the US Senate that had armed personnel at the press conference announcing the new gun control legislation, you get to begin in week two. Don’t worry though; you are in a gun free space. You are perfectly safe.
It seems perfectly reasonable to ask our leaders to lead, let them show the way. You know lead by example and all that rhetorical horse scat.
The hypocrisy from the administration is just another example of reality being turned on its ear for the sake of feel good bovine scatology.
Think about it. On one hand we are being told that the poor persecuted people in the Middle East need to defend themselves and in the same press conference we are told we need to have it made harder for you and me to exercise what is already declared and constituted into our National foundation of rights and beliefs.
“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” – This is the one right that secures them all.
Feel free to exercise your First Amendment right on the issue and no need to thank me for my exercising of the second amendment to make sure you can use your first.
Banning firearms or imposing unreasonable restrictions not only goes against the spirit and letter of Constitutional Law, but increases the odds that innocent Americans will become targets of violent criminals like we have seen in “gun-free” cities such as Detroit and Chicago.
We realize that if you are a left-leaning gun grabber you could argue that I am merely throwing out Republican and Libertarian talking points, so don’t take my word for it.
Maybe the warnings from this little known author and Statesman will convince you:
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…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 prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.”
We’ll be happy to give up our guns… just as soon as former New York’ Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and President Barack Obama remove their ARMED security details.*
Lead by example, right?
