As tireless a defender of the Second Amendment as I am, I do much prefer the times when the lefty politicians waste their crises once and for all, and just leave us alone.
But we’re not there. Not yet.
So as a bit of a weekend mental apertif, I though I’d run the two Second Amendment videos of the week.
They’re below the jump (because one of them seems to launch automatically)
The first? Ben Shapiro beating Piers “The Musketeer” Morgan like a baby seal:
Because when Real Americans argue the Second Amendment, we have two legs to argue on:
- We have the law on our side
- We have the facts on our side – and we universally do
- We’re smarter than our opposition, and anyone watching the debate knows it
If we fall short on any of them – as Alex Jones, predictably, did with #3 – then we might as well not have any of them. Because that’s the way it’ll be portrayed.
The next one? Stewart Mills of Mills Fleet Farm (a regional chain of stores selling everything from farming and livestock supplies to guns, hunting gear, cold-weather clothing and guns and ammo) explains to our uninformed, meme-spewing Congresspeople Nolan, Franken and Klobuchar what any shooter knows – the AR15 is no deadlier than a lot of common hunting firearms:
The duck gun is more powerful than the AR, especially up close. The AR15 is not “built to kill people as quickly as possible”, any gunny knows; it’s designed to function when covered in mud or sand or snow, and overheated, and to have a few bullets left when your enemy has stopped attacking you.
