WATCH: NRA Protester Balks at Gun Owners Who Think It’s Okay to Kill Home Intruders

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.

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?

    “How do you begin to explain a self evident truth?” S.H. Blannelberry? You begin with publishing responsible articles that include identifying the protesting group in the video. Surely if they are something other than a small, radical, anti-2A group as you claim, they have a name and web page. THEN we can have mature, intelligent discussions on the subject. The only thing this article accomplished was to incite anger and disgust. Towards a ghost. The responses range from violent to vile, and then there are the political party slurs. The NRA NEEDS support (or at least an understanding) from those that are not conservatives, and you go help make enemies out of them?? MORE divisiveness? SMH Guns “America”.

  • Tom August 12, 2018, 8:44 am

    All the gun grabbers should be required to post a large ” GUN FREE ZONE” sign on the front of their homes!

    • John Quiroz August 14, 2018, 1:51 am

      …and I nominate Tom for whatever! Surely they would post the sign, if they truly believe in what they are fighting for? I know that NRA members/2nd amendment supporters would. Good call Tom.

  • ExGob August 11, 2018, 11:09 pm

    Anytime anyone comments in support of banning any kind of single shot, cylinder-fed, pump action, or semi-automatic firearm, or any kind of bullett, magazine, clip, scope, carry strap, tools and solvents for firearm cleaning, etc., that person is doing nothing but showing his/her ignorance. Anyone who entertains thoughts of using a firearm illegally does not give one damn whether it’s banned or about any laws pertaining to it’s use or possession. State and federal punishments for illegal use of a firearm are far more severe than those for mere possession of a banned firearm. Anyone who isn’t concerned about the punishment for shooting and/or killing someone, sure as hell ain’t concerned about any ‘banned’ or any other laws

    The ‘banning’ of anything that can be had, regardless of how, only works with the law abiding. Criminals love the rhetoric of the gun banners because they see it as advantageous to them. Fewer guns….safer criminal activity.

    Get wise, y’all. Get yourselves armed and BE PREPARED!

  • e August 11, 2018, 10:46 pm

    Anybody check this ladies back round? Her husband or son were probably killed breaking into someones home. “Mothers Against Rational Thought”! She looks like the type of person that would say someone should be put to death for killing one of her 50 cats. However let someone commit a truly horrific crime and say God will punish them later. I’d like to thank her for making herself a target! Maybe it will spare the caring family next door to her from becoming victims.

    Stupid statements such as these, come from people who have no grasp on reality. If someone broke into these idiots home who would they call. I’m sure they would call the police someone who has a gun to come and stop the bad guy and them from being killed. They kind of want it both ways don’t they, Im sure they are not going to lay down to be slaughtered , they are going to do anything possible including calling some one with a gun to save there lives. And if i was a betting man id bet that if the neighbor intervened with a weapon and saved there lives, Im betting they would be very thankful for that neighbor that had a gun. But with these hateful pea brained socialist anti gun crowd it could go ether way they could hate the neighbor for getting blood on there carpet . Theres no sanity to these people!

    Wasn’t there a Colorado leftist that said “when the magazines are all empty that would take care of the gun problem” or words to that effect? And she was on a panel deciding on gun laws.

  • Gandalf August 11, 2018, 5:37 am

    Look, folks. One thing I’ve learned: It’s simply no use debating, or trying to “reason” with this type of anti-gun zealot. So when confronted with them – which in my case has been a rare occurrence – I simply laugh, shake my head and walk away. I know there’s evil in this world and I prepare for its appearance as best I can, hoping it won’t happen but being ready to deal with it realistically if it does.

    I would rather spend my energy on those I meet that seem at least to have no opinion on the subject, or that say they disagree at present but are willing to listen to an opposing viewpoint (Yes, there are still a few of those left). At least in those cases, you have some hope of maybe getting them to understand if not agree with your position. And if I think the person(s) are open to a possible change of opinion, I might even invite them to come to the range with me for an afternoon of target shooting. Who knows, I might even make a convert out of him/her. Therefore, I’d counsel you to not waste your time or breath on the mindless, inconvertible gun haters. There are, surprisingly, many out there who are just waiting for someone like you or me to show them that guns are not evil and neither are those who own and shoot them.

I wonder if this would work? Maybe I should help him loot my home too? Or tell him perhaps you better leave before I call the Police? I’m wondering exactly what this woman had in mind, so I could Impliment her thoughts? YEA RIGHT!!! LOL

  • Gunny1951 August 10, 2018, 1:59 pm

    She is a product of our current public education system wherein all are taught it is better to become a victim of violence than to use violence to protect themselves.
    Sometimes violence IS actually the answer- unlike some who have posted here, I hope that she is never confronted with a situation that would place her in a position of wishing she had a firearm. Normal people do not seek violence- violence finds them. It is up to each of us to decide whether or not we will become victims, or stand and become victors. I got one do not want a “participation award”. Give me first prize every time!

  • Bruce August 10, 2018, 12:54 pm

    Lets look at this this way. This stupid Biatch just put up a neon sign inviting anyone to come into her house without worry. Open advertisement. Good luck lady. Hide your daughters.

  • dan detmer August 10, 2018, 12:08 pm

    Not living in the real world. violence whether in the home or outside the home can come to anyone at anytime. You don’t choose it, it chooses you.
    The bad guy in your home is not visiting violence upon the judge. He is breaking into your home. strange analogy.

    So let’s see how a judge secures his courtroom (home). What do you know, there are armed sheriff deputies there to protect the judge and all others with firearms if a bad guy breaks in or is present in the courtroom and then causes serious trouble that can cause death or serious injury.

    The law goes on to say that it can be assumed that when someone breaks into our home that we are in imminent peril of great bodily harm. This is the mindset of our culture. We have laws on the books called the “Castle Doctrine”and ‘Stand Your Ground’ which means that if your are attacked with deadly force, you can use deadly force (guns and other tools) to protect yourself, that when confronted with someone trying to kill you, you can protect yourself.

    After hundreds and hundreds of years, our culture has decided on a psychology that we can protect ourselves. And that this is serious enough that we have made laws that allow us to protect ourselves.

    What I see as a pattern from people like her is an inability to seriously analyze the facts. That a predisposed hatred or brain washing has led them to a one sided conclusion.

    Now, I wonder what would she do it three bad guys broke into her home, started cutting, butchering, beating, raping her family. I just wonder how she would handle that.

  • Bobby August 10, 2018, 11:33 am

    They’re welcome to come on my property at any time to remove my weapons. Probably have a little issue getting past my Amstaffs, but they seem committed to their cause, so I’ll put the dogs up and let them come on in the house. They csn begin with any room or safe they’d like. Kinda like the Hotel California though, checking out will be very quick, but leaving, especially with any of my things will be impossible and they can even have a little quite time with the hogs.

  • Gilbert Conca August 10, 2018, 11:23 am

Mother nature has a way of dealing with any population that grows to large and stupid, as the human race has with such idiots. So no worries, just wait and be prepared. I am, I bought every good book on the subject there was about 5 yrs ago and followed exactly every bit of advice in them concerning preparedness and training. Since then my son has got out of the army, also read these books and made some modification and added the ability to use IV\’s as he was trained to do in the army, for hydration, the thing that will kill 90% of the population in such a pandemic.

It makes me angry to know that she refuses to defend my son, niece, and nephews when they stay with grandma. She grew up in a family of hunters!? I have no doubt that she would give her life trying to save theirs, so why not have a tool that COULD help save them and herself. I also have a sister-in-law that was robbed at gunpoint and choked when she lived in NY.(I know enough said but) You would think after that kind of event you’d choose to never be a victim again.

And if they do make it to their 60s, after a lifetime of voting to oppress the citizens of their state along with their stupid selves, they flee to the south (the same south they have demonized their whole lives) because one year of their retirement income will last 5 years down there. And even though they will never run into someone who is a concealed carry permit holder, they will fume in anger that people have the right to walk around with a weapon and are ready to defend themselves. They fume!! Sounds like it can’t be true but I am related to some of these people and they are real. They also knit their own pink hats (as if I should be proud of them).

  • M.A. Martinez August 10, 2018, 7:07 am

    Not a realistic viewpoint, but I’ve heard similar opinions. However, if someone is breaking into a home knowing that it is occupied, the goal isn’t mere burglary. It is reasonable and wise to interpret such behavior as an intent to harm the occupants, and there is plethora of police case files that can substantiate this view. This woman’s opinion (and similar sentiments) come from ignorance and a life of sheltered naiveté. There are people who enjoy hurting others. There are people who don’t have any sort of morals to govern their behavior; only the clear prospect of punishment/consequences keeps them in check. It’s not pretty, but it’s realistic. I don’t know what do to about the ignorant segment of our society except to bus the dangerous psychotics to their neighborhoods. Seeing is believing!
