The new call of the left is to turn our guns into the government, and repel the second amendment. Once again, the sentiment is that the government is the only way to solve the problem of gun violence. This time, however, it makes even less sense than usual.
It has been repetitively stated by the left that President Trump is the new Hitler. Naturally given what we know about Hitler, you would think turning over our weapons to Trump would be the last thing suggested. But it seems that logic is not a necessary trait for bleeding hearts.
If you believe that President Trump is the new Hitler, why on Earth would you give him your guns? Having a gun isn’t just to protect yourself from criminals; it’s to protect yourself from tyranny. This is why it was written into our constitutional rights.
The Second Amendment states: “A well regulated militia, being NECESSARY to the SECURITY of a FREE state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” This amendment was written on purpose. The colonist knew all too well what it was really like to live under a dictator.
The German people weren’t so lucky. The right to protect themselves from tyrants, such as Hitler, wasn’t something they had the pleasure of experiencing. Instead they were able to experience a police state; with the luxury of concentration camps. No American in their right mind would ever want to live in such a place.
But because we live in such a sheltered little world, we forget how good we have it. We think every country enjoys the freedoms we have been afforded by this country. When, in fact, a vast majority don’t have what we consider to be our basic freedoms.
So why the push to turn our beloved country into something it’s not? For safety? Do you feel safe waiting on police while an intruder is rummaging through your home? Do you feel safe when you see videos of the police brutally beating an unarmed man? So why would increasing that ten fold make you any safer?
In the words of Adolf Hitler: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.”
Basically, to become a tyrant, take their guns! So, if your goal is to see Trump become the tyrant Hitler, then we should definitely give him our guns.
