The Irony Of Gun Grabbers
Today is the day we celebrate the birth and life of civil rights leader Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today is also the day that various anti-gun groups will gather in Newtown to protest your right to self-defense.
Oh, the irony of people rallying to limit the constitutional rights of those they dislike on the very day that we celebrate a man who gave his life fighting for all Americans to be guaranteed those same constitutional rights.
A man who was denied the right to lawfully keep and bear arms based on the color of his skin, but defied the law to exercise that basic human right.
A man who these same anti-gun groups would today condemn and demand be jailed because he illegally owned guns without any background checks.
And while it is true that later in life King himself decided to go unarmed, much has been written about how his supporters continued to possess firearms in defense of both themselves and Dr. King.
“The right to defend one’s home and one’s person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law.” - Martin Luther King, Jr. 1967
CCDL is asking people to come out and show your opposition to this intrusion upon your rights. See this previous post for more details.
