In this segment of his Virtual State of the Union, the Virtual President talks about why politicians want to talk about gun control rather than crime control, and delivers the factual evidence and historical truths that make the case for the Second Amendment self-evident.
We have posted this video before. It is not new. But it is the best argument I have heard for the reason why Americans have a right to possess guns and why they have a need to possess guns. Even Conservatives agree that guns should be not be in the hands of dangerous or mentally ill people. We also agree that background checks are necessary. But that doesn’t call for outlawing certain guns, limiting ammunition, reducing clip size or confiscating weapons.
If we handed out stiffer jail sentences and convicted more criminals and kept them off the streets for a long while then we wouldn’t need to be talking about gun control. It is because we have become soft in our treatment of criminals that gun violence abounds our land. The majority of Americans own and treat guns responsibly. You don’t punish the majority for the sins of a minority. You punish the minority as severely as it takes to correct their illegal, immoral and sinful behavior.
If you have a Liberal friend and you want him/her to see the other side of the argument, show them this video. It is absolutely the best made.
