Self-defense and the defense of a free people against government tyranny is a HUMAN right
Why do the Democrats hate blacks and the poor? And I’m being serious here: this should be the rallying call of the pro-second amendment groups.
To drive some of these points home — which are either largely ignored or disingenuously spun and then dismissed by gun control advocates — allow me to concretize them. In the Colorado legislature, the proceedings of which I carried live here, the Republicans proposed an amendment to a gun-control measure that would have excluded those low-income earners from the Democrat-sponsored House bill that sought to levy fees for buying guns on all Colorado citizens.
That amendment was defeated by the Democrats, and the Democrat bill passed (after Joe Biden and the White House strong-armed 7 Democrat legislators into changing their votes, threatening to find candidates to primary against them if they voted in the way their constituency wanted them to, while promising that Obama would campaign on their behalf should they vote the way the White House wanted them to).
In the end, for all their bullshit about championing the little people — which is a carefully-constructed narrative that has been helped along by a progressive media and the left’s takeover of education, entertainment, and the like — what the left wants is one thing: a gentrified, neo-aristrocratic ruling class; and the rest of us, the masses, over which they will watch benevolently with an occasional stern hand should we get a bit too uppity.
If they can’t disarm you directly, they will figure out ways to make gun ownership increasingly rare and increasingly onerous. That their first targets in Colorado are those who are most directly affected by violent crimes committed by criminals is, truth be told, absolute proof that they care not a whit about gun violence, but rather care only about the long game of disarming the populace while increasingly militarizing the police.
For our own safety, of course.
