The Best Vido On The 2nd Amendment That You Will Ever See

Topics: Gun rights, Political News and commentaries

Bill Whittle knows how to make his point, and doesn't disappoint in this video, the 'Best 7 Minutes On Gun Control In the United States.' If every person in America watched this powerful video published back on Mar 12, 2013, there'd likely be a whole lot less debate about gun control.

Via Mark Boyle, the publisher of the video on YouTube:

In this segment of his Virtual State of the Union, the Virtual President talks about why politicians want to talk about gun control rather than crime control, and delivers the factual evidence and historical truths that make the case for the Second Amendment self-evident.

Gun ownership

Why should ordinary citizens own a gun?

Because owning a police officer is too expensive. Time and time again, statistics show that the that law enforcement arrives usually just in time, to draw the chalk outline around your body.

Why do some states have a mandatory waiting period, after purchasing a gun?

Some states, such as Illinois and others, have a mandatory "cooling off period" when purchasing a firearm. At Gun Right Across America, we do not support this. As a former Illinois resident, I can personally attest to the fact that nobody went back to retrieve their firearm after the mandatory wait, and said "I'm not mad anymore." This is just another silly restriction that some liberal states impose, to create more useless restrictions.

Open carry / Concealed carry

Why do some states allow ordinary law abiding citizens to carry a firearm?

I say why not! The key word is law abiding. 49 of 50 states currently have legislation for citizens to train, qualify, and carry a firearm. As an American, our second amendment guarantees us this freedom, and we will fight to keep it.

Which is better? Open carry or concealed carry?

Ahhh, yes, the age old debate. Open carry is a deterrent. Concealed carry gives you the element of surprise. Given both options, I carry concealed, but that's just my personal preference. There's advantages and disadvantages to both. If you do open carry, you do have to be much more alert to your "personal space" and surroundings. At Gun Rights Across America, we support both methods 100%.

For what it's worth, I don't expect liberal-progressives to agree. As Tom Trinko aptly noted at American Thinker back in April 2013, contrary to what many conservative pundits believe, the primary reason for liberals wishing to disarm the population is not to prevent a popular uprising against the effective liberal abrogation of the Constitution -- liberals lack the ability to even conceive such a thing could ever happen, what they want is to increase liberalism's power and the dependency of the average American on the government.
[...] For example Catholics shouldn't be able to make people eat fish on Fridays and Jews shouldn't make pig farming illegal. While both Catholics and Jews, and most Christians, are perfectly comfortable with keeping government from supporting a specific denomination, liberals are not. Liberals believe that their views, no matter how small the issue, are above all others and as such should be enforced with the full power of the government. While liberalism isn't a traditional religion, the aspects of life it wishes to control are essentially the same in nature as the religion-specific rules of most faiths; not eating pork for Jews is similar to liberals condemnation of smoking and large glasses of soda.

Eliminating citizen's right to protect themselves is just the latest prong in liberals campaign to make Americans wards of the state. Tax laws and rates designed to make saving money for retirement difficult while being so obtuse as to require even average Americans to hire accountants, interference in the medical sector that drives up costs forcing many Americans to depend on the government for health care in their old age, massively intrusive laws such as ObamaCare which grant huge flexibility to unelected bureaucrats to define what the law actually says, and using the money of working Americans to make a welfare dependent class are all aspects of liberals soft revolution aimed at inverting the core assumption of the great American experiment that government is subject to the people.

For the benefit of new readers, yes I conceal carry (legally) ... it's my right, it's my choice, and it's my Springfield XDS .45 ACP (for example - among others in my gun safe).
