Protecting our right to self-defense
The philosophy of the Democratic Party is that people should trust the government for all their needs and to achieve that goal the party requires total people control. Individual initiative by people to provide for their own existence and improving their life is an entrepreneurial spirit. It is mocked, hindered, or crushed by Democrats who require a mass group of people such as poorly educated and illegal immigrants to maintain birth-to-death control.
They believe that unless the public are denuded of their guns, control cannot be imposed on the population. Thus they campaign extensively to galvanize support for more gun control even as radical Islamic terrorism is increasing. In San Bernardino as in Paris, unarmed citizens were a soft target defenseless against terrorists. Only by allowing us self-defense can we resist terrorism. It is foolish to believe that the message “Gun Free Zone” will frighten a terrorist.
Gun control under whatever falsity is pandered, such as passing the New York SAFE Act limiting gun owners to 7-round magazines that are not even manufactured, is another act of harassment by the left. We must learn from history that Hitler, Stalin, Mao and other despots banned individual ownership of guns to gain and maintain control.
