This is to anyone who has ever believed the lies advanced by those who advocate for gun control. And the claim that giving up our weapons makes us safer is a lie. Statistics, anecdotal evidence and history all speak to this fact. So I do not wish to debate this point: it has already been settled as a universal truth. Rather, I wish to point to what is happening in Ukraine to hammer home this truth. Ukraine is in this position because it accepted the promise of protection from both Russia and the United States. In return for giving up its nuclear weapons, Russia and the U.S. promised to protect Ukraine from exactly what is happening to it now. See what trusting liars got them? Now, and be honest with yourself, do you really think Ukraine would be in this position if they still had control of their nuclear arsenal? Or do you think that would be enough to make Putin think many times before invading his neighbor?
So, on the exact same line, why would you accept the promise of protection from our government when it has clearly, repeatedly and consistently proven it lies for its own purposes? Or do you still believe that Obamacare is going to let you keep your insurance plan and your doctor and save you money and reduce the national debt – all at the same time? Because, if you still believe this sort of shuck-and-jive, I want to talk to you about some prime, beach-front property I have to sell you in the Sahara Desert – because anyone who still believes a word our government tells them is more than foolish enough to buy it.
Here’s the point: anyone who tells you they will protect you if you agree to disarm is a liar who wants to rule over you. The simple truth is, the moment you surrender your will and ability to defend yourself, you have surrendered your life to those who possess the will and ability to rule you. This is a self-evident truth. It is beyond rational debate. And anyone who thinks they can change or alter this fact has lost touch with reality. It is that simple.
