You know establishment liberals are desperate when they start throwing around the race card to defend their attacks on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
On Thursday, that‚Äôs exactly what former D.C. cop and MSNBC script reader Chris Matthews did ‚Äď he called the NRA‚Äôs Wayne LaPierre a racist for¬†daring to defend¬†the god-given natural right of self-defense.
‚ÄúHurricanes. Tornadoes. Riots. Terrorists. Gangs. Lone criminals,‚ÄĚ LaPierre wrote for the Daily Caller on Wednesday. ‚ÄúThese are perils we are sure to face ‚Äď not just maybe. It‚Äôs not paranoia to buy a gun. It‚Äôs survival. It‚Äôs responsible behavior, and it‚Äôs time we encourage law-abiding Americans to do just that.‚ÄĚ
He also wrote that ‚Äúthe American people clearly see the daunting forces we will undoubtedly face: terrorists, crime, drug gangs, the possibility of Euro-style debt riots, civil unrest or natural disaster.‚ÄĚ
Unfortunately, the NRA boss discounted the primary reason there is a Second Amendment and safely framed his argument within parameters defined by the state.
‚ÄúGun owners are¬†not¬†buying firearms because they anticipate a confrontation with the government. Rather, we anticipate confrontations where the government isn‚Äôt there‚ÄĒor simply doesn‚Äôt show up in time,‚ÄĚ he wrote.
In fact, many Americans are buying guns fully expecting to one day fight government tyranny. As¬†Andrew Napolitano has pointed out, the Second Amendment was written to protect the right to shoot tyrants, not skeet shoot (a reference to Obama‚Äôs ridiculous claim ‚Äď supposedly backed up by a photo ‚Äď that he likes to go up to Camp David and skeet shoot).
Self-defense has nothing to do with the Bill of Rights. John Locke pointed this out when he declared the right to self-defense is the first law of nature.
