NYT: Who Wants to Live in a Society Where Everyone Is Armed for Self-Defense?


Wow, what an interesting question to ask with such skepticism.

Who wants to live in a society where the threat of attacks is a daily concern? O wait, that’s exactly what society we live in thanks to the ever present terrorism running rampant throughout the world. The answer to who wants to live in a society where everyone is armed for self defense would every republican in the world. Being armed for self defense doesn’t mean pulling out a gun every time you have a bad day. It’s having the ability to do so when a mad man is firing shots off at your children in a movie theater or stabbing people on a bridge.

Via Breitbart:

According to NYT, “The reaction of some [the Alexandria attack] was that the only solution is yet more guns. Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama, who was among those who came under fire on Wednesday, said, ‘It’s not easy to take when you see people around you being shot and you don’t have a weapon yourself.’”

The NYT said the desire to arm up for self-defense is “an entirely reasonable reflex” after such an attack, but the editorial board believes actually doing it is a step too far.

Consider the society Americans would have to live in–the choices they would have to make–to enable that kind of defense. Every member of Congress, and every other American of whatever age, would have to go to baseball practice, or to school, or to work, or to the post office, or to the health clinic–or to any other place mass shootings now take place–with a gun on their hip.

Note to NYT–this is already how Americans lives their lives in their home states. You usually do not see the guns, for that reason it is called ‘concealed carry.’ It is legal in all 50 states and every day, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, business owners and business patrons, carry handguns for self-defense as they go about their day in their respective home states.

And the “mass shootings” are not occurring where Americans carry guns daily. Rather, they are occurring in the gun-free zones which the left and anti-gun business owners established in society. In those places, law-abiding Americans must give up their hope of self-defense and, sadly, often become sitting ducks for criminals who ignore gun-free signs.

America was founded in the right to have a gun and practice that right religiously.

    I do! If our guns are banned and the Islamic Muslims start killing and raping our wives and daughters, I want to be able to shoot the Bastards! I bet the Europeans would love to have guns to protect themselves now. If everyone carries a gun then people will think before trying to commit a crime.
