The modern anti-gun movement is not only ill-informed, it’s also insanely extreme. Video of a woman at Saturday’s national “March on NRA” event speaks volumes about just how off the rocker gun-grabbers are.
After telling an NRA camera crew that “a gun ban is absolutely what’s necessary,” and that “we need to start from scratch with the whole gun issue,” she balked at the idea of one using lethal force to defend oneself in one’s home.
“We have people who think it’s okay to kill an intruder into their house,” she said as if it was the craziest thing she’s ever heard.
Although the Castle Doctrine was codified in the 17th Century, one can trace the principle of lawful self-defense in one’s home all the way back through the Old Testament to antiquity. Needless to say it’s not a new concept. It’s been around awhile.
But even if one wanted to reject the historical evidence, self-defense is self-evident. It’s common sense! It’s part of natural law! Something tries to hurt or kill you or your family, you have the right to fight back! Period.
SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST: This one #gun-grabbing #protestor thinks THAT YOU SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO #DEFEND YOUR LIFE if an #intruder breaks into your house. The #NRA and our 6 million members know better than this and we will never stop fighting for the #2A! #EmptyHQ #FreeIceCream pic.twitter.com/SYWWztnl6Z

Skeptics might argue that one bad apple doesn’t represent the entire bunch. But the NRA crew also found folks calling for a ban on “fully semiautomatic guns” and others saying that no citizen should be allowed to carry outside the home for self-defense.
Right, because the 2A only says “keep” arms it says nothing about bearing aka carrying them.
Sad or troubling or maybe both. But the people we’re up against are bonkers. Like that lady for example. How do you even begin to explain to someone a self-evident truth?
