A government that would disarm its citizens…

ANCHORAGE DAILY PLANET

As Democrats prepare to assume control of the U.S. House of Representatives and promise a new and vigorous campaign against Americans’ Second Amendment rights, we are reminded of something the late Orlando Sentinel columnist Charley Reese wrote some years ago.

Reese was not somebody who trusted government and who was especially leery when it came to gun rights and the Second Amendment.

”A government that intended to protect the liberty of the people would not disarm them,” he wrote. “A government planning the opposite most certainly and logically would disarm them. And so it has been in this century. Check out the history of Germany, the Soviet Union, Cuba, China and Cambodia.”

He was right then. He is right now.

And never let the Left fool you. It intends to, incrementally and surely, despite any blather to the contrary, disarm Americans. It has said as much in plain language.

Just something to consider as our friends on the Left prepare to push this nation toward their vision of utopia where only the government and criminals would be armed.

  • The government that wants to disarm law-abiding citizens intends to murder them. Better for the citizens to resist while the are armed rather than wait until after they are disarmed.

  • Respectfully suggest a minor change from “A government that would disarm its citizens” to “A government that would try to disarm its citizens”…

    For some readers, the former is not an option.
