"It's Not A Right!"
That’s what they say in England about gun ownership. They say it’s a “privilege.” Which means it can be given or taken away by the politicians, at will. Of course, they don’t have a Second Amendment in England, so they know NOTHING about a human right to self defense, and to own and use the means to it, a gun. They say “the NRA is always coming up with new ways to be nasty,” completely ignoring the fact that the NRA is protecting a right GUARANTEED by the Constitution, which is the BASIS for all our laws. Since they don’t have such a thing as the Second Amendment, created by wiser men than they, before they were even born, they think they know more than people who simply are DETERMINED to maintain the constitutional RIGHT to defend themselves with whatever tool is necessary—in this case, a gun. Back when there were no guns, that right would involve the right to carry a sword, in order to defend oneself. We fought a war for independence from these people because of their ignorance of human nature, so let’s not allow them to tell us what is, and is NOT a “right.” (The Guardian of London)
