Those of us who support freedom – and an armed populace is the ultimate guarantor of the freedoms God endowed us with and which the Constitution merely acknowledges – should keep talking about the facts, and some of the most important facts are expressed with numbers. Let’s start with the homicide numbers, in freefall over the same two decades as states began to conform their gun laws to the requirements of the Constitution. And how about 500,000 to 3 million – the estimated number of times per year citizens defend themselves with guns?
Let’s look at another number – 329,999,999. That the approximate number of Americans who did not go on a killing spree at the Navy Yard – and the number of American citizens whose fundamental rights Democrats would strip away in a heartbeat if they could.
Then there’s the number “2” – that’s the number of Colorado Democrats booted out of office for their anti-gun freedom stance a couple weeks ago. Here’s hoping that the Democrats find the courage to ignore the Colorado recall numbers and bravely pursue their fanatical assault on our basic freedoms.
And it is fanatical – we’ve seen not only how it defies basic reason but also how it puts their political careers at risk. Liberals know that we conservative Americans are the last people who will ever use our guns to commit crime – that dirtbag ex-cop in Los Angeles wrote a mash note to the Lightbringer and the Navy Yard loser was a fan too. Gun control is not really about controlling guns but about controlling us, real Americans who infuriate the liberal elite by stubbornly refusing to conform our behavior to the dictates of our urban betters.
And if we submit to the whining of the metrosexual liberal mob and give up our guns – liberals love the guns they control – it won’t end there. They have plenty of other ideas for improving us on their “To Do” list. Our religion, our big cars and trucks, our red meat, our Fox News viewing – they will address all of these deficiencies and more in their eternal quest to perfect us. And by “perfect us” I mean turn us into subservient robots eager to heed their commands.
But Americans don’t appreciate a bunch of coastal city liberal fascists with delusions of moral superiority telling us what to do. The Democrats from red America running in 2014 get it – endangered Senators Begich (D-AK), Pryor (D-AR), Hagan (D-NC), and Landrieu (D-LA) have got to be sweating it out as safe Senator Feinstein (D-Leftopia) starts with the gun control nonsense again.
Rock on, DiFi. Remember, you have a moral obligation to push those reasonable gun regulations right up to a public vote! Don’t let Harry Reid weasel out of it – you get those senators on record! We conservatives are totally with you.
