Guns are for Liberals, too.

See the entire article here. Well said, Mr. Eber.

We may not need a compelling reason to own a firearm other than the fact that an armed populace is necessary for the security of a free state. Anti-Patriot Act liberals should realize that if they cannot trust the government to respect the privacy of their phone calls or to grant proper due process, then they should probably not also assume the government can be trusted not to disarm its citizens in the name of public safety.

“Gun control” is a misnomer when used by anti-gun activists. To most of them, gun control means federal registration of firearms, followed by one or more buy-backs, confiscation and destruction. Many gun control laws effectively take away firearms from the good guys and leave them in the hands of those who would do us harm. This approach to crime is not working very well. Anti-gun people exhibit a knee-jerk reaction, passing more and more firearms laws. Some 20,000 laws give or take a few, is just not enough. Could it simply be that when you take guns away from responsible people and have the murderers, rapists, looters, and robbers still armed, it leads to a higher violent crime rate? My tentative conclusions about these anti-gunners are not that they are poorly informed, or even misguided. They are just stupid. They have learned little or nothing from decades of experience and deny people the ability to defend themselves and their families in their own homes and cars. There is no appropriate time to remove the natural right to self-defense, ever. Not for emergencies, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and certainly not for the tyranny of government against its citizens. Washington D.C. has denied residents their guarantee and rights under the 2nd amendment for some 30 years. This law appears to be illegal, illogical and unconstitutional. It is really a crime perpetrated against its own citizens. New York, Chicago and San Francisco have chosen to follow D.C.’s lead. Ultimately, it may not be criminals and terrorists who would certainly do us harm or destroy us, but rather the total disarmament of all law-abiding citizens of our republic. My sense is that law-abiding people need to speak up for themselves, or else lose rights they have had since before the U.S. Constitution was written. You can’t abridge a right if you did not have it beforehand. The framers of the Constitution were not stupid. They understood basic human nature, the potential tyranny of government over it citizens and the basic need for self-protection.
