It's amazing the propaganda that comes from the media and the politicians in Washington. The claim is that roughly 90% of the United States supports more gun control, including expanding background checks. The reality is quite different, and a recent anti Second Amendment "rally" demonstrates this perfectly. Some real patriots decided they had enough of sitting back and listening to bleeding hearts spew their anti Second Amendment rhetoric and decided to crash their party, eventually taking over the podium.
Last week in Ohio, anti Second Amendment protesters, including six members of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns, were outnumbered by National Rifle Association and Buckeye Firearms Association supporters in Columbus.
"As a gun owner, I'm a responsible person, and I think it's responsible to ask to have all gun owners have a background check," said Blanche Luczyk, one of the anti Second Amendment speakers at the rally. "It's just common sense. Any responsible person who is willing to take the ownership of a gun should be willing to have that background check."
According to 10TV:
Luczyk was one of a half dozen members of the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns who hosted the rally in the Arena District on Friday.
But when Luczyk started her speech by telling the crowd that former President Ronald Reagan supported background checks, she was drowned out by shouts of "Germany 1933" and "Hitler."
About 50 guns-rights supporters were on hand, some with rifles over their shoulders and others with handguns in hip holsters.
Some, such as Charlie Roberts, were there to make sure that Second Amendment supporters had their voices heard.
"I want to show my support for the NRA, gun rights and the 2nd Amendment," said Roberts. "We need to go after the criminals who commit crimes with guns and not the honest law abiding citizens. We don't need any new laws, just enforce the ones on the books."
While the crowd praised Republican Senator Rob Portman, who took heat earlier this year when he abandoned the view of biblical marriage for a perversion of it, Luczyk said that she was surprised that Congress is not doing anything. However, that's just it. They are doing something all the time, but they aren't supposed to be doing anything when it comes to arms. What part of "shall not be infringed does Ms. Luczyk not understand? I assume it's the same part that liberals and RINOs don't understand.
Linda Walker of the Buckeye Firearms Foundation said there was no reason for Bloomberg's group to be in Ohio. "Ohioans stand up for our constitutional rights, and that's the way it's going to be."
Once Luczyk finished, Walker took her place to give voice to supporters of the Second Amendment.
"People are fired up, people are concerned," said Walker. "It's overwhelming this many people show up on a Friday afternoon because our constitutional rights are that important."
I applaud the efforts of these patriots. They didn't have to march on Washington. They simply showed up where the domestic enemies of the Constitution staged their rally and then went out to meet them. No violence ensued, but rather a duel of ideas. One was Constitutional, and one was….well, less than that.
If the numbers the federal government and the media keep pushing are accurate (90%), then where are these people? Or is the reality more like we're getting 90% propaganda?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
