Believes that gun control is ‘immoral’

Everyone agrees that we have God-given rights (nature’s law, for you atheists) which, among others, includes the right of self-defense. Our creator compels us to defend ourselves, our family, our friends, neighbors, the weak and infirm against predators, invaders, and tyrannical governments.

The right of self-defense implies the right to use whatever means necessary to effectively combat the threat to life and liberty. It is an immoral, tyrannical government that would tell you what weapons you may use, and how much ammunition you may have for your defense. Magazine limits won’t cut it.

Some [foolish people] suggest that a woman about to be raped should urinate on her attacker. Duh. Wouldn’t hot lead be more effective than hot urine?

The right to bear arms is not debatable. It is a right given by God and confirmed by our Constitution. There are millions of law-abiding citizens across our once-great nation who will resist any attempts to take away our God-given rights.

I believe the Council on Foreign Relations (our shadow government), and the U.N. want to disarm the citizens of the world. An armed populace is a hindrance to their goal of one-world government.

“This [Second Amendment] may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. ... The right of self-defense is the first law of nature: in most governments, it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Whenever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.” – Blackstone’s Commentaries, 1803
