Liberals NEED Guns

Subject: Liberals NEED Guns

To the Editor, The Washington Times

RE: Liberals NEED Guns (They Just Haven't Figured It Out Yet)

While your editorial "Guns & Stiff Upper Lips" was absolutely on target about the abject failure of victim disarmament in Great Britain, this is merely one more inconvenient fact to be ignored by the gun control crowd and their media lapdogs (TWT excluded, of course). For two decades I have argued the facts, logic, history and law of the Second Amendment with uncounted liberals without changing one mind.

These days, I do not waste my breath. When some pompous advocate of victim disarmament is impolitic enough to announce for gun confiscation in my presence, I merely nod my head, pause, and then apologize to him in advance that I will be forced to kill any number of people, including perhaps him, to maintain my liberty if his policy is adopted.

I point out that in order to get my guns he will have to kill me, my family, and all my friends. I further observe that if even ten percent of American gun owners feel the way I do, he's going to have to kill upwards of 8.5 million of his fellow citizens to implement his proposal, and that doesn't count all the gun-grabbing pukes like him that we'll kill in righteous self-defense before we meet our Maker, and we intend to make that more than a one-to-one ratio.

I conclude by asking them, "Is gun control worth your life, and that of millions of others? If not, shut up. But if so, you'd better arm yourself. You're gonna NEED a gun."

Even so, I thank the Lord every day for the unintended consequences of British gun control. Without it, we wouldn't have a country or a Constitution. General Gage's troops weren't out at Lexington and Concord looking for printing presses. And the Minutemen weren't so foolish as to arm themselves with picket signs. Tyrants don't care what their subjects think, but they are scared to death of people who possess the tools of resistance and the will to use them.

No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
