Because our right to life is equal to theirs. They are liberals who claim to believe in “equality”, so they should start by recognizing that our right to life, along with liberty and the pursuit of happiness, are unalienable rights endowed upon us by our creator. They certainly believe this is true for themselves and so they have armed hard men who surround them everywhere they go 24 hours a day to insure that no one dare try to take their right to life away from them. These armed guards are prepared to use deadly force in an instant to protect Obama and Bloomberg. No argument with there, that’s as it should be.
We don’t have armed guards to protect us. We have the right, as well as the responsibility, to defend ourselves from deadly force used against us. If attacked, we are the first responders because we choose not to be the first victims. We have the right endowed upon us by our creator and guaranteed in the United States Constitution to have at our disposal the same means to protect our lives since we must do it ourselves, unlike Obama and Bloomberg who because of their political position are able to delegate that responsibility to others.
A terrifically good statement of these truths and principles is Obama’s Hypocrisy Problem on Guns, by Karl Denniger:
This debate should end right there. Up until all of these people in political office disband their police forces, their Secret Service details, throw down their own arms, armored cars, body armor and other defensive means of interdicting assault they have nothing — not even a moral argument — behind them in their demand that you disarm and become an intentional victim — no matter who you are.
Read it all, it will give you everything you need to win any argument with a liberal anti-gun nut.
