Second Amendment- Should it be Illegal to Defend Yourself? This Lib Seems to Think So
Liberal Justin Curmi wrote a blog for the Huffington Post that has left gun supporters scratching their heads. And if they’d admit it, the article should make anti-gunners scratch too. He decided that it should be illegal for people to defend themselves with guns because it denies the perpetrator the right to a fair trial.
It was written by someone who never in his life has been faced with the threat of death, or any of his family or friends or relatives. Which appears to be all liberals who have lived that shallow, unicorn/butterfly/fairy dust life.
“A Revision on the Bill of Rights Part III”
“…The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights. In addition, one’s mental capacity is a major factor in deciding whether a man or woman has the right to have a firearm. There are two reasons for ensuring mental capacity. First, one of the Five Aims is to ensure domestic tranquility and there can be no tranquility if one does not have the capacity. Second, if one’s brain is distorting his or her reality, they do not have the proper reasoning and deduction skills to use a firearm.
Therefore, if we ponder and meditate on the recent events in news about guns, it would be obvious that the current state is incorrect. A gun for civilians is a weapon for a revolution and not for ordinary use. The belief that a gun is a useful tool to protect one is counterintuitive because guns get into the hands of people who use them for horrible reasons…” Justin Curmi
The flawed reasoning in this article is crazy. To say that a firearm is “not for ordinary use” is seriously ignorant.
Fact: citizens using firearms have saved the lives of countless people and their families when intruders break into their homes. They have saved the lives of police, of citizens. This fool is saying that no one should protect themselves or their families. In this liberal’s view, we should just let the attacker kill us or the people around us.
He says that if you protect yourself, the guns get into the hands of “people who use them for horrible reasons.” Criminals get guns whether you and I do or not.
They are c.r.i.m.i.n.a.l.s…has this guy ever been accosted by a violent gang? Nope. Has he ever seen a loved one shot to death? Nope. What about seeing someone get shot in a parking lot? Not that either. He lives in la-la land. He has a degree in Philosophy and Political Science, and writes a blog.
Mental capacity seems to be his big point. He contends that ordinary people can’t use guns because they don’t have the mental capacity for it. Only police should use them because they are specially trained. He says it’s “immensely difficult to fire in a stressful situation.” For him, maybe. He’s likely not been to the range ever and probably feels that a range is stressful.
Personally, I like going to the range. The smell of gunpowder is lovely… all homey, safe, and warm.
His “revision” of the Bill of Rights does not follow Supreme Court Rulings like the Heller decision, nor does he have a sound view of legalities or laws in the United States. He should stick to dreaming and not mess with the Second Amendment.
Are guns only for a Revolution? Keep pushing these stupid anti-gun ideas, and we’ll see what we can do.
