As the attack on our 2nd Amendment continues, these shootings will feed the cancer that the left is spreading across our nation. They will never see that a “good guy” with a firearm stopped a “bad guy” with a firearm.
Make no mistake, they want your firearms and simply using social media to say they can never have them, is not enough. We must unite and have a collective voice that our freedoms cannot be abolished by the cowardly and PC victims.
RWT News article on the latest attack on our 2nd Amendment as well as “assault weapons” and how the left is asking for a complete firearm ban and criminal prosecution for everyone who refuses.
AR does not stand for assault rifle, it stands for Armalite Rifle the company that created the first AR. he verb Assault describes an action, I was assaulted, he is assaulting someone, she used a gun to assault him. Assault is the action taken. Johnny used a knife to assault Jimmy, this does not make the knife an assault knife. Johnny used a big knife, a blue knife, etc… Big, blue are adjectives, they describe the knife, assault cannot describe something because it is an action word, a verb. The anti-gun movement used the verb “assault” simply to scare people, to make people perceive the weapon (gun) as its own entity capable of action in its own right, making it appear almost alive; therefore an “assault weapon” appears as though it could almost act on its own, that is a scary thought indeed, but it can’t. Words do matter, and using them correctly matters even more when it comes to protecting the Rights of an individual. There is no “assault” weapon, only weapons used in the act of assaulting someone, in the act of an assault. When my grandmother was punishing me she wasn’t using an assault spoon, she was using a wooden one, think about it.
Stop allowing the manipulation of words by politicians to manipulate our fear so they can create monsters that don’t exist, i.e. “assault weapons” because the weapon is not what is doing the assaulting, the human is. Be careful what rights you are willing to give away after they manipulate you with fear, because next it will be, you can’t use those, they are “assault words,” Oh, wait, it’s “hate words…” too late…
