Let me digress for a moment.
You've probably by now heard of the tragedy of Jamie Gilt, a young Texas mother who was accidentally shot by her four-year-old son, who found a loaded handgun in the backseat. A moment of inattentiveness, a moment of neglect, and a tragedy results. Thankfully, Jamie will recover, but the story is so horrific that it's gone around the world. You can read about it here.
We hope and pray, of course, for Jamie's full recovery and for the continuing health of her child. But, we see that the story has been picked up by the anti-gunners and used for their own perverse propaganda purposes.
One in particular, John Niven, a Brit who has regretably never tasted freedom yet insists on lecturing us about freedom. Niven lives in a peculiar democracy where self-defense is illegal, where rape is an organized event, and a country where Sharia courts dispense their own barbaric justice, yet he presumes to lecture us on freedom. To wit:
It seems increasingly obvious that the real infant with a gun here is America itself. Watch it stumbling around like a giant toddler, wreaking untold havoc and then screaming its head off if someone dares to confiscate its beloved toy.
It’s about time someone took the toys away for good.No, Mr. Niven, it is increasingly obvious to us that your country has more challenges with liberalism than you can appreciate. You have become so accustomed to your nanny state, where multiculturalsm reigns supremse, where you are not allowed to defend yourself, where children are raped at organized events, that you have forgotten (if you ever knew) what freedom feels like. More's the shame. Your country is but a hollow shell of it's former self. I weep for Britain.
And to all the Americans, listen to Joe Huffman.
Don’t ever let anyone get away with telling you that no one wants to take your guns.That is all.
