If we can actually talk about the article content for a moment . . . if you can't protect it, it isn't yours regardless of what we're talking about. There are exceptions but this is a good truism. Consider your house. A locked front door is your first line of defense, but failing that you have a secondary defense: insurance, receipts, titles, etc. as legal weapons to defend your property. Likewise when it comes to our lives, we also need a first line of defense such as firearms. It isn't good enough to tell me that there's a secondary defense only such as laws against murder - "Don't worry - if someone stabs you to death we'll put them in jail." The right to self-defense is integral to property rights. The two cannot be separated.

What is the essence of freedom? Property and a gun.

I never met my grandfather, but that's the lesson I took from his life. He was one generation out of slavery and bought property and guns.

It's so predictable that today's discussion on gun control is similar to the noise we hear from liberals every time there is a mass shooting. What is new this time is that the NRA, under the direction of Wayne LaPierre, David Keene and Asa Hutchinson, has put forth a concrete plan that most American parents should appreciate will keep children safer at school.
