What About Personal Protection?
3/14/13 | originalbuckeye

Posted on 03/14/2013 6:37:10 PM PDT by originalbuckeye

Why don't the Big Libs EVER discuss what firearms are needed for personal protection? Why do they only talk about hunting and shooting?


TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; Government; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: banglist; guncontrol; guns; protection; secondamendment
It seems to me that semi-automatics with a useful magazine would be the best deterrent for burglary, home invasion, etc. They NEVER talk about Americans defending themselves. The criminals will NOT be turning in their weapons. Can we sue the Gov't when the criminals are better armed than innocent Americans?

Because for personal protection you have 911 to call. You have a doorman at the front door of your high security condo building. You have a gated community with private security guards.

... Wait a minute. You don't have any of that stuff except 911? You must be one of the "little people."

Part of it is because Eric Holder's people consider violent crime to be a legitimate career path, and armed victims to be an OSHA violation.

Because their mindset is that Gov’t, even local police, are responsible for taking care of them. To think of defending themselves would like (gasp) taking personal responsibility.

Liberals won’t discuss personal protection because they believe a woman who is raped and strangled with her own pantyhose in an alley is somehow morally superior to the woman who’s busy explaining to the police how her attacker got that fatal gunshot wound.

I bought my first gun, a Walther .380 with a laser sight, in January. I feel much safer now.

Liberals don’t know too much about guns. After all, they don’t ever own one. Consequently, they believe in a lot of myths about guns.

Such as. They believe that guns are not useful for personal protection. The criminal will just take it away from you after all.

And, if they can convince the hunters that their guns are safe. then the hunters won’t oppose the gun bans.

I dunno. They always look at me funny when I assure them I don’t want a gun to kill their beloved Bambi. I want one to blow away a human who is trying to kill me first.

The left can’t admit what the second amendment was intended for.

My problem is that when talking about the right to bear arms, it only revolves around either hunting or occasionally protection of yourself and property.

In my readings of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Federalist Papers, it never once mentions hunting or protection of life and property. What is discussed is the right of the people to bear arms to protect themselves from an overly oppressive central government.

I often wonder what would the response from the libs be, were that arguement to be used as a justification for the second amendment. Additionally, if the introduction of evidence were to be made showing our central government can not be trusted and should not be trusted.

they believe your self defense can’t be lethal self defense.

I don’t seem to have the same numbers on my phone. All I see is 357. Will that work?

Libs have an agenda...and that agenda is to ban bad, scary thoughts.

Violence is scary and so are guns.

If we don't think of them...indeed, if we ban them...maybe they will go away.

And then gun free zones will be safe.

Ya think?

"Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used, and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible".

(Hubert H Humphrey 1960)

The right to self-preservation is unalienable regardless of whether that is written in the U.S. Constitution.

Libtards do not discuss what types of firearms are necessary for personal protection because they believe that all a woman needs is a whistle.

Because they don’t WANT people to be able to protect themselves. They have more empathy for criminals than law abiding citizens. Sorry but it is true.

These greedy gun-grabbers, never talk about all the guns used in self defense WHICH NEVER EVEN GET FIRED!! All the cowardly people who seek to attack law abiding citizens have to do is SEE the gun, and MOST times, they run without a shot ever being fired. I don’t even hear that in the media, or on FOXNEWS which is mostly pro-gun. Fact is that scenerio occurs far more often than someone being shot.
