Quote of the day—NRA-ILA

Where laws and politics are concerned, no battle for freedom is ever won in perpetuity. But gun owners have certainly pushed freedom’s adversaries back across the Rhine, and apparently no one knows it better than Josh Horwitz.

What a Difference a Year Makes
[Horwitz is the director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence which was formally known as the National Coalition to Ban Handguns. You might think that the name change was to soften their image of gun banners but actually it was because they wanted to broaden their scope to include “assault weapons”.

And now Horwitz has dreams of, maybe, someday, getting “universal background checks” as the law of the land.

Give it up Josh. Gun ownership is a specific enumerated right and your desire for infringing that right is no more valid than denying the rights guaranteed under the 13th Amendment if someone fails a background check.—Joe]

  1. Maybe you should pick another amendment for Josh. I’m not sure the 13th would resonate with him. Then again, none of them would be likely to raise an eyebrow. We’re talking about people who consider the American Founders, and anyone who uses their language of liberty, to be terrorists, after all. Speaking like one of the hated colonialist rebels isn’t going to sway him one bit.

    It’s like trying to argue with Karl Marx, warning him that his policies would infringe on property rights. That’s a feature to someone like that, not a bug. As for the 13th specifically; Margaret Sanger, darling of the “Early 20th Century Progressives” (as Hillary specifically and pointedly calls herself) said of the African races that they were “unfit”, and she was very tight with the KKK. Note what Progressive policies have done to the American blacks since the early 20th century, and what they continue to do. So don’t think you’ll get anywhere with Ole’ Josh using that argument.

  2. “…gun owners have certainly pushed freedom’s adversaries back across the Rhine…”

    We have be very careful about celebrating, especially considering who’s got the ball.
