Now it all becomes clear: Liberals want you to lay still and think of England while all manner of people molest your peace, you property and your body.

Three cheers for old King George!

At least that’s what it’s come to in a growing number of self-defense cases around the country. Not only are we questioning a person’s right to arm themselves, we are questioning a person’s right to defend themselves and their property at all.

Defense of the individual and their property are the oldest rights known to man. And when you say that only government has a right to do that, you are giving your welfare and your property over to government.

It’s happening in Reading, Pennsylvania to business owners; in Sanford, Florida; Mesquite, Texas to homeowners; Spokane, Washington to university students. And according to the NRA to your town very, very soon, if Obama has his way.

"On Monday, Obama's current operation sent an email to supporters urging them to hold events advocating gun control on December 14, the one-year anniversary of the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown, Connecticut," says the NRA. "Meanwhile, Michael Bloomberg's euphemistically-named group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, along with Moms Demand Action, are releasing a 60-second version and a 30-second version of a TV ad portraying a person approaching an elementary school with a duffel bag, as students observe a moment of silence for the victims who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary. The obvious implication is that the gun control laws that one or both groups support could prevent the type of crime committed at Sandy Hook."

Can't they let the dead kids of Sandy Hook rest in peace? No, no they can't.

By leaps and bounds, liberals are trying to stifle your right to self-defense because, you know, that’s the government’s RIGHT, not the right of private citizens.

“And you don't know if you feel like you're going to be raped,” said Uber-Liberal Rep. Joe Salazar (R)ocky Mountain Highness) on the debate about restricting the 2nd Amendment, “or if you feel like someone's been following you around or if you feel like you're in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop ... pop a round at somebody.”

Yes, because the government knows better whether I might be raped than I do. Better that they get to decide who gets a round popped into them.
