Of COURSE, I’m going to quote the NH Constitution – Article 2-A is a better formulation of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms than the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights.
[Art.] 2-a. [The Bearing of Arms.] All persons have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their property and the state.
Our Constitutions are supposed to be the fencing that restricts the Government from treading into OUR affairs, not that it doesn’t have any “escape hatches” that start with “unless.”
At least the 2nd has “shall not infringe” which Progressives do every gymnastic exercise known to man (and the Devil) to ignore as the Operative Phrase – (go ahead, ask them to do the elementary school level of diagramming an English sentence).
But with that, this little video is amusing – and it brings out a great point:
Why is it that the people who want to take our guns know absolutely nothing about them?@TedCruz, @MikePompeo, @Jim_Jordan, @BurgessOwens, and @MarkRobinsonNC react and roast. 🔥 pic.twitter.com/uMUd7gyZpT

Those of us who have and use guns for any kind of support or defense, spend a lot of time learning the vocabulary and getting trained. We practicing safe shooting techniques, and we grow weary of those High and Mighty, Morally Superior types that believe they have the right to lecture and hector us about guns.
It becomes clear when they do that they have no idea of what they are talking about.
And they get angry when we point out HOW they are wrong as in “how DARE you correct me, you evil person for owning a gun – don’t you realize you can become a killing machine with no provocation at all!!!!!”.
Yeah, sure thing. Let me say the quiet part out loud – if we gun owners actually thought and acted like that, you all would be dead already.
We’re tired and fed up that you have an EXTREMELY few people who, for the great majority of the time, are mentally ill and then you generalize that onto the rest of us. If we really were, you’d be dead already.
You have Democrat urban areas/cities that for years have refused to fully prosecute gun CRIMINALS for gun CRIMES by employing the gun crime equivalent of the Open Borders “Catch and Release” – and I wonder why you’re not all dead already.
