With the new month comes a renewed vow by BHO and his cronies in the ATF to re-interpret the 2nd Amendment for all of us legal gun owners. I think the author below speaks for all of us as to what we think about that….
Kurt Schlichter, a Los Angeles trial attorney, recently-retired U.S. Army Infantry colonel, and all-around smart guy, has recently penned a nuanced and subtle response to those timid souls who claim that law-abiding American citizens shouldn’t be able to own the sort of firearms they desire.
Nah, I’m totally kidding you.
American gun owners are beginning to respond with a fresh, powerful argument when facing anti-gun liberals. Here it is, in its entirety. Ready?
“Screw you.” That’s it. Except the first word isn’t “Screw.”
It’s not exactly a traditional argument, but it’s certainly appropriate here. The fact is that there is no point in arguing with liberal gun-control advocates because their argument is never in good faith. They slander gun owners as murderers. They lie about their ultimate aim, which is to ban and confiscate all privately owned weapons. And they adopt a pose of reasonability, yet their position is not susceptible change because of evidence, facts or law. None of those matter – they already have their conclusion. This has to do with power – their power.
You can’t argue with someone who is lying about his position or whose position is not based upon reason. You can talk all day about how crime has diminished where concealed carry is allowed, while it flourishes in Democrat blue cities where gun control is tightest. You can point to statistics showing that law-abiding citizens who carry legally are exponentially less likely to commit gun crimes then other people. You can cite examples of armed citizens protecting themselves and their communities with guns. You can offer government statistics showing how the typical American is at many times greater risk of death from an automobile crash, a fall, or poisoningthan from murder by gun.
