“I don’t think it’s about more gun control. I grew up in the South with guns everywhere and we never shot anyone. This [shooting] is about people who aren’t taught the value of life.” – Samuel L. Jackson
The left will do everything in their power to make the 2nd Amendment sound evil and unappealing. Today I stumbled upon an absolutely absurd article that the 2nd amendment is only for white people, and that black people will only be shot if they are caught practicing this right.
The writer, Eugene Robinson, stated in the article,
“You might think the National Rifle Association and its amen chorus would be outraged, but apparently they believe Second Amendment rights are for whites only.”
First of all, yes, a thug (no matter the color) who has committed a crime and and/or fighting the police has a much greater chance of being shot if he or she also possess a gun. The chances grow substantially when the gun is reached for by the criminal.
Now, the 2nd amendment was created for the people to be able to protect themselves, even from the government.
As James Madison stated, “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.”
This means that every single race and gender in America has the right to bear arms. I am not speaking about specific individuals in these races who cannot legally possess a firearm for various reasons, but every race as a whole.
Do not be cheated out of what is perhaps one of your greatest rights, by listening to an ignorant race baiter.
