“The right to bear arms is because that’s the last form of defense against tyranny. Not to hunt. It’s to protect yourself from the police.”
No government can complete it’s path to tyranny, soft, smiley-faced, or hard boiled, while the public remains lawfully armed. The right to bear arms is the right from which all other rights extend. Period.
Side note for the anti-gun hypocrats; didn’t the “Arab Spring”–that uncontrolled impetus of the people to be free from oppression and tyranny require that they be provided with…gasp!..firearms? I don’t recall any tyrants just stepping aside without the threat of armed action or rebellion–emphasis on “armed.”
Yeah, well, that’s different right? The Gun-hating progressive-socialist-nanny-state–do-what-we-tell-you-to-do or we’ll tax you Democrats don’t want to disarm us out of a desire to protect monarchical executive power or to advance the stifling grip of tyranny. They want to do it to end gun violence* even though like most everything else they believe, it has never worked anywhere it has been tried.
*Does not apply to Mexico or the SouthWest United States, Chicago, Washington DC, and most major Liberal-run cities where violence, assault, rape, robbery, burglary, larceny, murder and other increases in personal and property crime are the direct result of Democrat anti-gun policies.
