Daily Kos: State of the Nation
That's the most well organized argument on the subject I've ever seen.
Agreed! I am speechless!
Thanks. That's a very good piece.
I have always said that the language of the 1st amendment is the same as the 2nd amendment and should be common sense.
If the anti-america types had been championing the second amendment instead of the first amendment we would be able to own biological agents and nuclear weapons.
That's a good article.
This is what I've always said to a anti-gunner.
"My right to keep and bear arms, protects your right to protest against it." or "You can't march down the streets and protest against my right to bear arms, because if you take away the second, your first will be the next to go"
Whether it sinks in or not is a different story.
Good article....especially liked-
If you put into context what the lefties try to do with to the 2nd Amendment to any other Amendment and people would be screaming...but we need the NRA, GOA, SAF and other gun groups to fight FOR our God given, Constitutional rights granted to every US citizen.
The left has never been for the constitution and that is why the arguments never work. The left is about socialism which means they run your life and you must knuckle under or die. After 200 years of discussion on our rights why do you think they are against them? They could care less because they know better than you how to run your life. Only way to deal with this is vote em all out.
+1 great article. Ironically the very people who should be the champions of liberty are the ones working hardest to end it on this issue. Without the second amendment to protect our other rights, the rest of the bill of rights will not continue to exist. This is also why conservatives should care about protecting the rights of those they disagree with no matter how distasteful their beliefs may seem. :thumbup:
"I would ask gun control advocates one question: name a single place in the entire world where murder rates fell after gun control laws were passed." JH
I'll name two... Hiroshima and Nagasaki...
Never in a million years would I have expected that article to be found in the Daily Kos.
Why, are they trying to repeal a part of the Constitution?
Only a liberal would do that...
The left is about control of your life, that is what socialist do. They can not achieve total control when people are armed for their own defense. Look at most big cities and how the socialist have taken peoples right to own guns and ruined life in the big cities.
You are correct, and if you look at the countries that turned the corner and became socialist/communist they first had to take the guns, under the guise of protecting our children or other BS stories. They then killed millions of the folks that were at odds with them. China, Germany, Russia and the list goes on.
But the sheep are usually asleep and don't see it coming. When they realize what has happened its too late. A case in point Venezuela where Chavez had Union Workers and the Media behind his takeover. Offered cookies to the peons for their vote and they jumped at the free stuff.
So if your population is ignorant they will always choose to loot the treasury to get the free stuff, give up their freedom in the process and then be slaves to a powerful tyrannical central government. We are well on the way.
