POLITICIANS CAVE: MEDIA SCARES SENATOR INTO COMPROMISING?
What can you say when the politicians look to future campaign funds and voter support rather than their Constitutional duties and the history of the United States?
Some Pro-Gun Voices Now Changing Their View -- Senator, Scarborough say Newtown school massacre changed everything
Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat endorsed by the NRA, said on Morning Joe on Monday that “everything should be on the table.”
Manchin said that NRA officials should be part of the conversation and “it’s time to move beyond rhetoric. We need to sit down and have a common sense discussion and move in a reasonable way.”
Noting that he had just returned with his family from a deer hunting trip, the senator said: “I don’t know anyone in the hunting or sporting arena that goes out with an assault rifle. I don’t know anybody that needs 30 rounds in the clip to go hunting. I mean, these are things that need to be talked about.” <Source: Some Pro-Gun Voices Now Changing Their View - The Daily Beast>
I’m sorry that a United States Senator does not understand the Constitution which he has sworn to uphold, defend and protect. The Second Amendment is a reaffirmation of our God-given rights to self-defense – and most importantly – a defense against government tyranny! There is nothing about hunting or recreational activities in the text.
“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Bottom line …
There is no way to detect and deter crazy people from committing heinous acts. Disarming the population in the hopes that one of these crazies will not use fire, explosives, chemicals, automobiles or other weapons to achieve their aim of mass murder is ludicrous.
There is no way to keep criminals from obtaining weapons, because – by the very definition of criminal – they operate outside of the law. Criminals will always obtain weapons to allow them to prevail over their victims.
We do face the possibility of a mass attack – by the violent well-armed Mexican drug cartels who do have fully automatic machine guns, grenades, rockets and military-style arms; and who threaten to invade us when the drug trade in Mexico is legalized. What am I saying, they have already invaded many parts of the United States and are part of the “culture of gun violence” decried in the mainstream media. Then there are the Islamic Jihadist sleeper cells. Law enforcement responds after the fact, very rarely on time to save lives.
And, of course, we also face the possibility of civil war – when the unionized entitlement culture decides to employ violence and thuggery to keep their benefits flowing.
Are these scenarios far-fetched? No more than someone believing that an adult would murder 20 children in cold blood.
It is the liberals – infiltrated and infested with radical socialists and communists who want to destroy America from within – using our own laws and institutions against us. And, as far as I can tell, they are doing a fine job of infiltrating our government at the highest levels. It has been the dream of international socialists, communists and the majority of the member nations of the United Nations to impose gun control on the American people. Not because they give a rat’s ass about domestic violence, but to make it less likely that Americans will revolt when their “constitutionally elected” government officials sell them out and into slavery.
A radical opinion in the face of what has occurred in Connecticut? I think not. You do not let your guard down because the left-dominated politicians are pushing their toxic political agenda for self-gain.
Perhaps it is time to assess the damage the liberals have wrought with their weakening of our culture and spirit – especially with their multi-culturalism, moral equivalency, political correctness and dividing Americans into hyphenated Americans. For it is the last thing they want is a nation united against a common enemy, rather than a nation divided and attacking itself from within.
