Letter: Gun rights are for fighting tyranny
Gun lovers are like pro-abortion advocates. They won’t accept any restrictions on abortion because they don’t trust pro-lifers to stop. They know that pro-lifers think abortion is murder and that a true pro-lifer won’t stop until abortion is illegal everywhere.
Similarly, pro-gun folks don’t trust anti-gun politicians one inch. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has spoken of confiscating guns. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, while standing amid Uzi-toting bodyguards whom we pay for, has said guns are unnecessary and dangerous. President Obama, while surrounded by gun-toting Secret Service people whom we pay for, has said that guns don’t keep us safe and that we shouldn’t have them.
Gun rights have nothing to do with hunting. They have everything to do with fighting tyranny.
Why should a pro-gun person trust any politician?
