Pete, DaTechGuy, posted a piece today entitled “2nd Amendment, 1st Amendment it’s all the same…” which lamented that the press doesn’t get it with regard to Obama’s threat to curtail gun rights, and asks if one amendment is no longer sacrosanct, what about the others?
I say that these folks are just today’s version of Lenin’s ‘Useful Idiots’, who will go along with the ‘revolution’ until it suddenly consumes them. Indeed, I ask them:
I may disagree vehemently with what you write, but I would defend to the death your right to publish it. That, sir/madam is the purpose of the Second Amendment: To defend ourselves, our families, our property, and our RIGHTS…. EVEN against government.
You may disagree with my right to defend myself, but after they come for the gun owners, and you did not speak up in our defense, who will speak up when they come for the journalists? (Paraphrasing Niemoller)
